“My cousin got deployed, so I’m staying at his place while he’s away and taking care of things for him,” Daniel said. “Which is fine, great, whatever, but now the toilet won’t flush. It was fine when I got here, and then it started flushing slower and now it won’t flush at all. Back home, I’d know who to call for help. But where do I find a plumber in New York, NY?”
Toilet Trouble: Clogs, Failure to Flush & Other Plumbing Problems
If there’s ever a time you need a plumber in NYC, it’s when the toilet stops working. The most common type of toilet trouble is a clogged toilet. In these instances, something is blocking the drain pipe and preventing water and waste material from leaving the toilet. This can be due to accumulated debris, an improperly flushed object, or a compromise in the drain pipe itself. The clog-clearing solutions available online or in the home improvement store generally aren’t strong enough to deal with a truly stubborn clog. Your plumber will identify the cause of and resolve the clog so your toilet works properly.
Sometimes a toilet won’t flush because the handle has unhooked, or because there’s a problem with the toilet fill or flush valve. Problems with the fill valve and water supply line can also contribute to a toilet that never stops running. A toilet that never stops running isn’t a messy inconvenience the way a clogged toilet or toilet that won’t flush is, but it is annoying and can cause your water bill to skyrocket. Your NYC plumber can address these issues for you. Call 212-260-2006 for fast service. 24 hour emergency service is available!
