Three Common Causes of a Leaky Toilet
Posted on July 29th, 2014
Summer is now in full swing! With the kids home from school, your toilets have been exposed to additional usage. This extra pressure on your plumbing system can lead to complications; such as a leaky toilet. Here are three scenarios that could occur.
Broken Tank: The tank is an important part of the toilet. Water flows to the tank when the toilet flushes. If there is a crack in the tank, water will spew everywhere. It is important to have this repaired as soon as possible; before more damage is done.
Corroded Pipes: If you have an old house with an old plumbing system, it is possible that some of your pipes are corroded. Corrosion occurs when metal pipes weaken over time. Rust can start to form and it can lead to a leaky pipe.
Cracked Bowl: When your toilet bowl is cracked, it is imperative to call a professional plumber immediately. Ignoring a cracked toilet bowl could cause major water damage in your home.
