Issues with your toilet can be very stressful. Before you panic, know that most common toilet problems are easy to fix and you do not need a professional plumber to come to fix it. No matter the toilet problem, remember to be careful and always have a professional in mind to call if things go awry. If the situation is something you do not think you can handle, you should call Andy’s Pipe Dream right away.

Here are some of the most common toilet repairs you can fix yourself:

1. Weak Flush

Hard water deposits can keep your toilet from having a strong flush. There are two ways you can fix this: port cleaning and acid cleaning. EHow.com has useful information on how to perform both of these fixes.

2. Partial Flush

If your toilet bowl does not completely empty when you flush, you could have an issue with it partialing flushing. Usually this means the toilet flapper is dropping too fast after you flush. To fix this, buy a new toilet player. They are relatively cheap and they are extremely easy to install.

3. Ghost Flushing

If your toilet flushes by itself all the time, this is again due to the toilet flapper. It is most likely losing its seal. Try moving the flapper so it properly seals. If the problem continues, replace the flapper.

4. Slow Flush

Does it take a long time for your toilet to flush? This could be due to a clog between the toilet tank and the toilet bowl. Try using a plunger to fix the clog. Otherwise, you will need a professional to clear the clogged pipe.

5. Toilet Tank Fills Slow

If your toilet tank fills too slow, you can easily fix this by adjust the valve that controls the water flow into the toilet tank. Adjust to your desired setting.

If you've been putting off replacing your toilet don't wait any longer! It's the final week to take advantage of Andy's Pipe Dream Plumbing's $75 OFF NEW Toilet Install Special.

Did you know your old toilet may be costing you money?

Old toilets are notorious for hiking up your water bill or causing you repeated repair costs.

Toilets that run or flush on their own (what we like to call "phantom flushers") are big water wasters, and toilets that leak can cause water damage to floors, ceilings and/or walls that are expensive to repair.
