Monterey Toilet Installation & Repair

Modern plumbing is undoubtedly one of the most wonderful conveniences of contemporary life, and the toilet may be the most underappreciated seat in history. Not so long ago, our private business was regulated to a small outdoor shack where you were forced to do your business while staring through a crescent moon cutout. Now, the average American gets to enjoy a modern toilet! Even the most grungy of subway bathrooms are far superior to the best bathroom situation of yonder years. There’s a reason it’s called a porcelain throne!

Here at After Hour Plumbing & Drain, we understand how important your toilet is. That’s why we’re committed to providing Monterey with around-the-clock 24/7 service and are equipped to handle any commode calamity you can throw at us.

Toilet Repair

By nature, problems with toilets are some of the worst things you can have to deal with in a home or building. While the problem could be simple, such as a broken fill valve, a clogged or overflowing toilet can cause awful smells and potentially create further problems and financial stress with water damage.

Our plumbers have seen it all, and some of the most common toilet problems in Monterey are:

  • Clogs
  • Leaks and poorly sealed bases
  • Damaged internals (Chain, Fill-valve, Etc.)
  • Flushing issues

When the worst happens and your toilet is in need of repair, let the trustworthy professionals at After Hour Plumbing & Drain do all of the dirty work for you. We guarantee we’ll have you sittin’ pretty on your privy in no time!

DIY Toilet Repair

We’ve all encountered a clogged toilet — “encountered” because it obviously wasn’t you that clogged it, right? We’ve also all had to deal with the infuriating background noise of a constantly running toilet.

These common toilet issues are minor and can usually be repaired by the average homeowner with a few simple tools and a little bit of know-how. Here are the most common solutions to the two most common problems.

Clogged Toilet:

Toilet clog repair can generally be done with a plunger and the same motion our pioneering ancestors used to churn butter. Plungers work by creating a seal over the drain opening and creating pressure within your water lines. This pressure builds up as you plunge, eventually causing the clog in the line to unstick.

Running Toilet:

Few things are more annoying than the constant droning of a running toilet. Not only are they annoying, but an unaddressed running toilet could end up costing you hundreds of dollars in unnecessary water bills.

Most of the time, a running toilet is caused by the internal components inside of the tank. Here is a brief checklist of everything that should be checked to potentially fix a running toilet

  1. Jiggle the handle – Oftentimes, simply giving the handle a slight shake will cause the flapper that keeps all of the water in the tank to seal properly when it fails to fall properly.
  2. Check your chain – Sometimes the chain that connects the handle to the flapper can become caught on other components, causing your flapper to seam improperly.
  3. Check the flapper – A dirty, worn out or broken flapper could be causing continual running.
  4. Check the float mechanism – The float mechanism rises with the water and eventually flips a switch that stops the water from running. Like the chain, this can become caught on things and impeded from rising, which will cause your toilet to continually run.

Toilet Replacement

Sometimes a simple repair won’t do the trick and it will become necessary to retire your throne and install a new one. Whether through damage or aging, all toilets will be replaced eventually.  It might surprise you to learn that the average toilet lasts 50 years! There’s some peace of mind in knowing that having your toilet replaced by one of our skilled plumbers could be an investment that lasts half a century!
