When water constantly rises in the bowl and spills onto the floor, a plunger probably won’t be the best solution. In fact, there is most likely an obstruction in the trap, drainpipe or maybe even a larger problem in the sewer line. At Winters Home Services, we have extensive experience handling all types of toilet emergencies.
Leaking Toilets & Running Water
Your toilet is most likely leaking if you hear running water for an extended period of time after flushing. Up to 200 gallons of water is wasted per day as water is dumped down the overflow tube. In this case, there could be several issues including a corroded overflow pipe, flush valve assembly or a worn out flapper valve. By contacting Winters Home Services, you’ll save a significant amount of money on your water bills.
Replacing Your Toilet
Older toilets typically use 3.5 gallons per flush, especially if they were manufactured prior to 1994. Newer models only use 1.6 gallons per flush while still providing the same flushing power. Newer toilet designs are environmentally-friendly and have a dual flushing system which only uses .9 gallons per flush.
Winters Home Services offer the top brands for toilets, such as Kohler, Toto, and American Standard. Our plumbers also offer warranties and maintenance plans on your bathroom’s plumbing fixture.
Winters Home Services can easily install an efficient and comfortable toilet that conserves water and decreases your monthly water bills. For more information on replacing your toilet or receiving a repair, give us a call today at 617.776.5950.
