Sometimes mysteries are fun – just ask Agatha Christie. But plumbing mysteries generally aren’t a lot of fun, and when the question your family is asking is “Is the toilet ever going to flush right?” you know it’s not a good time.
As a Manhattan plumber, I can tell you there are a few possible reasons your toilet isn’t flushing properly. The first, and by far most common reason a toilet won’t flush is because it’s clogged. Here in NYC most toilet clogs are caused by inappropriately flushed items. They can also be caused by damage to the sewer pipes.
If your toilet is clogged, the easiest, fastest fix is to have your Manhattan plumber clean the sewer drain for you. They can do this without damaging your toilet or messing up your home. Same day emergency service is available!
Sometimes a toilet won’t flush because the water level in the tank is too low. This can be because the tank is leaking, or it may be an issue with the water supply line. Either way, your Manhattan plumber can help you remedy this situation quickly.
Inside your toilet tank is a rubber flapper that plays a vital role in how your toilet functions. If this flapper doesn’t close properly, gets bent or warped out of shape, or just deteriorates with the passage of time, your toilet isn’t going to flush properly. Many times, if your toilet is flushing but not all the way, the rubber flapper is the issue. This can be a DIY repair job, but if you don’t have the tools, time, or temperment, your Manhattan plumber can do the job for you.
