Signs of Trouble with Your Toilet

Your bathroom plumbing system is extensive, comprising your bathtub, toilet, sink, their drains, and other components. Because you depend upon this system so much each and every day, it is important that any problems with your bathroom plumbing system are resolved as promptly as possible. If you notice any signs of trouble with your toilet, it is important that you contact a Collinsville, IL bathroom plumbing expert immediately. The longer you wait, the more likely it becomes that you’ll encounter serious issues with your system. Keep an eye out for any signs of trouble, and give the pros at Embrich Plumbing Co a call to have the problem resolved entirely.

Constant Running

A common problem that many homeowners encounter with their plumbing systems is a toilet that just won’t stop running. There are a few potential causes of this particular problem. Perhaps your float ball configuration is off, or the seal at the bottom of the tank is cracked or simply misaligned. While there are certainly a number of potential causes that are relatively quick fixes, it does always pay to have the situation evaluated and addressed by a professional plumber.

Frequent Clogs

You may think that a frequently clogged toilet is little more than a minor annoyance. While you may be able to clear many toilet clogs with the use of your plunger, though, this is not always the best way to go about resolving the issue, especially if these clogs are at all frequent. You could have a blockage of some sort deep in your sewer line, and that could be responsible for this problem.


If you notice water around your toilet, then you need to know for certain where that water is coming from. It’s possible, for instance, that there is just a lot of condensation coming off of your tank. It’s also possible that there is a leak somewhere on the tank itself, though, or in the plumbing running from your toilet. To avoid serious water damages, dial our number and let a pro take a look.
