Common Toilet Repairs
The toilet is an important piece of home plumbing. If your toilet isn’t working properly and needs repairs, you should call a professional plumber. Before you get the help of a plumber, however, it’s important to know about some of the common issues. In this article, we are going to look at common toilet repairs.
Every toilet has a water tank on the top of it. This tank holds water to be used when the toilet is flushed.
The water from the tank is pushed down into the toilet, and then the tank will refill itself.
In the tank you will find a drain that brings the water to the toilet. When it is flushed a chain will pull open the drain and the water will flow down. If the toilet isn’t flushing you want to check to make sure the cap for the drain, as well as, the chain are both intact.
The toilet also has a mechanism that brings water back into the tank. If the tank is overflowing, you most likely have a problem with the mechanism. You want to make sure that the tank is set to fill with the right amount of water. You can find how much water you need inside the tank.
