Toilet maintenance is something that has to be done routinely in order to keep your Orlando home toilet clean as well as to keep it running. A toilet may run on its own up until the point where it just stops working for no apparent reason. A toilet can be stopped up, it can leak, and it’s even worse if the water is turned off and the toilet cannot be used. There are many problems that families can face when they use their toilets, but maintenance is the key. Toilet Issues 1. One main problem that many people absolutely hate is when a toilet is clogged up. When a toilet is flushed, all the waste and water goes down the drain, and then the bowl is refilled with clean water again. If a toilet cannot flush because it’s clogged up somehow, continually flushing the toilet may cause it to overflow. There are few things worse than an overflowing toilet, except one that is overflowing with human waste. Although there are certain things that can be done to try to unclog a clogged toilet, a plumber may be the best choice for such a nasty mess. 2. Toilets have water running through them every time they are used, and the replenished water will fill up the toilet bowl. One big problem that a toilet may have is that there may be a leak, and it may be in several places around the toilet. It’s possible that there’s a leak in the bowl, at the base of the toilet, or in the tank. Since there are numerous places where a toilet can leak, finding a leak can be difficult, and if a leak is suspected, then calling a plumber can be very helpful when you’re trying to find and fix a leak. 3. If a toilet is constantly used by one person, it may take as little as one week before the bowl to starts smelling. Those who use the toilet regularly need to have it cleaned at least once a week if not every few days to keep smells and stains from accumulating inside the toilet.
