Toilet Installation and Replacement
In the U.S., the average person flushes the toilet five times a day, according to the Environmental Protection Agency. That is a lot of use over time and a lot of gallons flushed. Installing a toilet requires the hands of an experienced professional. Any mistakes can cause big problems. New toilets must be installed securely and in compliance with the latest building codes. A plumber can install or replace your toilet in little time to resolve a variety of issues and prevent even more serious problems.
Why Isn’t It Working?
Toilets can stop working for a number of reasons. A running toilet is annoying. It can also waste water as the flapper valve may not be closing properly after you flush, or there could be an internal leak. A leaky base is another problem that requires expert help; it may be caused by a worn wax ring. Fixing it requires removing the toilet and resetting a new ring to create a strong seal. Leaks can also be caused by loose refill and siphoning tubes, fill valves, or coupling nuts. Issues with the flange, the float, stopper, or handle can cause your toilet to work improperly as well. If the toilet doesn’t flush or only partially flushes, contact The AC Hero immediately for help.
Which Toilet Makes Sense for Your Home?
If your toilet needs frequent repairs, is constantly clogging, or leaks from the base, it’s time for a new one. Fortunately, there are many choices on the market, with toilet sales including types such as:
- Siphoning toilets: Generally use the most water but are overall clean and easy to maintain. Water flows from a jet near the bottom up to the rim. They sometimes require two flushes.
- Wash-down toilets: When you flush, a valve opens to allow water to flow into the bowl from under the rim. These toilets also often require more than one flush, and stain easily.
- Power-assisted toilets: Combine water and compressed air to provide force that clears waste out very well. The process may use less than a gallon per flush.
Older toilets used about 3.2 gallons per flush, so a family of four could end up using tens of thousands of gallons of water just from toilet flushes alone. A new standard limits this to 1.28 gallons per flush, which is mirrored by the Texas HET Law introduced in 2014.
