Almost everyone has had the unfortunate luck of dealing with a clogged, running or leaky toilet. Despite the convenience of modern plumbing in our homes, it can be an unpleasant task facing a toilet that does not work properly. We are a trained professional unfazed by these types of potentially messy situations.
There are a lot of reasons why toilets become clogged. Many families with young children are no strangers to having a toy or other objects flushed down the toilet, watching objects ‘disappear’ in the toilet is a fascinating adventure for a toddler. This situation can not only cause a clogged and overflowing toilet but can also damage the pipes and structure, sometimes causing costly repair issues. Even more often is a simple build-up of residue that can happen over time and use. Often, simply plunging a toilet can release this type of clog. If it doesn’t, or if your toilet consistently overflows, then it’s time to give us a call to diagnose and solve the underlying issues. We can get your toilet working properly quickly so you can get back to spending time with your family.
A leaking toilet can waste a lot of water and make a noise that keeps you up at night. If you’ve noticed a gurgling, gushing or trickling noise coming from toilet then it might be a sign that you might have a leak. If you have a leaky toilet in your home, the amount of water your household consumes can multiply quickly. You can quickly diagnose a leak by adding a few drops of food coloring to your tank and waiting about 10 minutes. If color appears in the bowl, then you have a leak and if you’re in Philadelphia, then it’s time to call Active Plumbing and Drain Cleaning to come out and fix the leak.
