Typical Toilet Drain Issues

The age of your toilet can often be the source of a problem. If your toilet was designed before the year 1994, it is using more than three gallons of water every single time you flush it. That can make your water bills go up and not only that; it’s an inefficient use of water.

If you have a newer toilet you may not be out of the woods either. Many more modern toilets post-1994 don’t have a powerful flush and seem to clog often. In 1994, Congress resolved lower the amount of water waste through requirements regarding a toilet to limit used water to a bit more than a gallon and a half for every flush. The first toilets made to adhere to the new standard weren’t always made efficiently, and you’re likely to need an upgrade. Today’s toilets flush well and sometimes even provide different flushing options for solid and liquid waste.

Getting a new toilet can do more than save your pocketbook; it can also make your bathroom function and look better. It might surprise you to learn that there are all kinds of toilets, such as pressure-assisted toilets, gravity flush toilets and vacuum-assisted models. Before you hire anyone to install or repair a new toilet, be sure that they are sending a technician who understands all kinds of toilets, as they can require different skills and techniques.

The highest-occurring toilet issues usually include the following:

-Weak flush
-Clog or other obstruction
-Double flushing
-“Ghost” flushing
-Damaged or rotting floor below toilet
-Base and other leaks
-Unexplained water drop
-Shaky toilet
-Gurgling

Ghosting

A strange toilet phenomenon is when it seems to flush by itself, a situation referred to as “ghosting” or “ghost flusher.” This ends up wasting a lot of water. When it happens, it’s typically caused by a problem with the toilet flapper, which is usually worn, leaking or corroded. If that happens, water can, at any time, drain slowly into your toilet bowl from the tank, triggering another flush.

The situation could also be caused by an overly big refill tube.

Double / Partial Flushing

If you’re finding that you’re always having to flush twice in order to see all the contents of the bowl disappear, that’s known as so-called “double flushing.” The level of your water needs to be addressed.

Partial flushers have a similar problem, usually, a flapper valve that is too quick to close and is waterlogged. It could also be happening because the tank isn’t full enough or that the chain joining your flusher and flapper valve needs to be adjusted.

Unexplained Water Drop

If you’re noticing that the bowl water levels seem to drop dramatically, there could some kind of obstruction or there could be a crack or other defect deeper down along the toilet colon.

Shaky Toilets

If your toilet wobbles, that’s generally a sign that the floor underneath the toilet has to be replaced or repaired. It could also be that the grout must be redone.

Weak Flushing

Your flushing toilet gets everything it needs from the tiny holes that fill the bowl after each flush. If mineral deposits or other things are clogging those holes, flushing is going to be weaker than ever.

Toilet Leaks

Should you see water pooling near the base of the toilet or observe water stains in the ceilings of rooms on a lower floor than the bathroom, you’ve probably got a worn gasket. As water leaks, it can result in damage.

Gurgling

Gurgling, especially in the tub after flushing, typically means there’s a clog. The clog could be located very deep in the pipes.
