3 Potential Causes of a Slow-Flushing Toilet

There is Nothing Worse Than a Toilet that Continues to run Continuously After Every Flush…

If you find yourself waiting for what seems like an eternity to have your toilet complete its flush cycle, you may need help from a professional plumber.

When you finally do call the plumber, you can advise him about what he will find on his home visit. Here are three of the most common Causes of a Slow-Flushing Toilet.

These problems can be easily solved by a professional with the right tools and years of experience. In some cases, the problem may be related to the age of your toilet. It is quite possible that your old toilet should be replaced. In some cases, the inner workings can be modernized to allow for a quicker flush.

Sacramento Toilet Repair ServicesHere are 3 Potential Causes of a Slow Flushing Toilet:

* The water level inside the toilet tank is insufficient to allow a flush to complete. The ball cock float does not rise high enough to force the water valve shut. Consequently, the water will continue to slowly flow until someone manually raises the ball to shut down the flow.

* If your water has a high mineral content or is considered hard, that mineral content in time can calcify in the water lines and restrict the flow of water through the system. That will result in longer flush times.

* Blocked or partially blocked toilets will lengthen the time it takes to complete your flush cycle. Finding the blockage can be a messy, tricky situation that requires the right tools and expertise. Obstructions can be caused by diapers, sanitary napkins, excessive toilet paper and an over abundance of “you know what” caught somewhere in the toilet. Worst case scenario: your toilet becomes completely clogged and the toilet overflows onto your bathroom floor and the rooms below.
