Toilet Repairs – Clogging, Running, Leaking
Clogs are one of the most common problems when it comes to toilets. Small clogs can be cleared through the use of a plunger. However, if you are experiencing a major issue that a plunger can’t fix, it is time to call in the professionals. Clogs can be caused by too much toilet paper, non-flushable items, or even piping that has been installed incorrectly. If you are experiencing clogs frequently, it is time to find a solution better than constant plunging.
Running toilets can be a big problem. Toilets are designed to fill with water to a certain point, and then stop. A running toilet can waste up to 200 gallons of water a day, which is about four times the amount a normal toilet would use. You will know your toilet is running by listening – the sound of water flowing never stops. Common causes of a running toilet include a worn-out flush valve assembly, an old or corroded pipe, or a flapper valve that is broken. Don’t wait if your toilet is running constantly – it wastes water and hikes up your water bill.
If you find water leaking around your toilet, don’t panic. Most leaks are caused by one or two pieces that have broken, which means it is usually a quick fix. There are many small pieces that work together to flush and refill the toilet, and if any of them become worn out, it could result in a leak. You could also have a leak caused by old gaskets (they attach the water tank to the bowl) or a damaged wax ring (which connects the base of the toilet to the pipe that removes waste). If you aren’t sure what the cause of the leak is, getting a professional assessment can help you determine if it is a small part that needs to be fixed, or if the toilet should be completely replaced.

Toilet Install and Replacement
Replacing your current toilet can be a great idea, whether you are upgrading to a more efficient model, or if you want to remodel the overall look of your bathroom. There are a lot of options when it comes to replacing a toilet but the biggest things you want to consider are the water efficiency, the look, and your budget. Going for a higher quality, efficient, and more expensive toilet can pay off in the long run by saving you money on your water bill. According to the EPA, by switching to a toilet with a WaterSense water efficiency label, you can use from 20 to 60% less water per flush, which adds up to between $140 and $200 savings on your monthly water bill (almost $3,000 saved over the lifetime of the toilet). If you are unsure about what model to go with, or if you are uncomfortable installing a new toilet on your own, don’t hesitate to get in touch with Drain Wizard Plumbing. We are here to help you every step of the way, from picking out your next toilet, to completing the install smoothly.
Commercial Toilet Services – Plumbing, Repairs, Installation
Businesses need restrooms for employees as well as customers. Making sure these spaces are clean, operational, and safe are important to the overall success of a business. While it may seem like the bathroom is separate from the business side of things, that is not the case. If a customer has a bad experience while visiting, like a wet bathroom floor due to a leak, or a clogged toilet, that can paint a negative picture of the rest of the business. Having a bathroom that functions well is also important for sanitation. Depending on the type of business you have, you may be interested in upgrading to commercial toilets and urinals.
