Toilet Repair And Replacement Services By iFixxer

Toilets are a requisite fixture in modern plumbing systems which serve as a crucial component of waste disposal and sanitation in businesses, homes and public toilets. 

Let’s have a general overview to get a basic idea about toilets:

  • Basic Function

Toilets are basically designed to accumulate and dispose of human waste hygienically. It works by using water to flush the human waste through a trap and into a sewer or septic system in return preventing odours and contamination.

  • Components 

A typical toilet includes several following components:

Bowl: The part from where waste is deposited and flushed.

Tank: The upper part that contains water which is used for flushing the solid.

Flush Mechanism: The handle when pulled down that initiates flushing.

Trapway: It is a curved pipe located under the bowl that carries the waste away.

Seat and Lid: A comfortable sitting surface and cover for the bowl.

Fill Valve: It regulates the water level in the tank.

Flush Valve: It releases water into the bowl that creates a water flush.

Varieties Of Toilets

  • Gravity-Flush Toilets 

It is the most common type of toilet that uses the force of gravity to flush the human waste.

  • Pressure-Assisted Toilets

Such toilets use compressed air to aid flushing and thus, providing a more powerful flush.

  • Dual-Flush Toilets

Such toilets offer two flush options to save water (usually a partial flush for liquid waste and a full flush for solid waste).

  • Waterless Toilets

These toilets are often used in remote places where there is limited supply of water.

  • Efficiency 

These modern toilets are specifically designed to be water-efficient that uses less water per flush. These are used to reduce water consumption to promote conservation, thus saving money on utility bills. 

We have enough overview about toilets and its varieties. Now, let's dive deep into its repairing and replacement of toilet components.

Toilet Repair

Repairing and replacing toilets due to various reasons are among common household maintenance tasks. Not only the people but also the professionals who are tradesmen or plumbers are technically certified to identify the simpler and complex toilet issues. They also tell us in what cases, a repair and replacement is needed.

Here is some useful information that helps traders to identity the issues in a better possible way:

  • Identify the Problem

Before beginning with any repair, a plumber identifies the issue with your toilet. They search for the common problems like clogging, any leakage, running water or flushing issues.

  • Tools and Supplies

After identifying the problem, a tradesman may need numerous tools and supplies such as an adjustable wrench, screwdriver, plunger, toilet auger, rubber gloves and replacement parts (like fill valves, flappers or wax rings).

  • Clogs

A plunger (tradesman tool) used in minor clogs can often clear the blockage easily. For stubborn clogging, a handyman might need a toilet auger (a designed tool for removing dense blockages).

  • Leaking Toilets

If the toilet is leaking, firstly, a tradesman will check for loose bolts and nuts around the base. Tighten them if it is the problem. 

However, if the leakage still persists, a faulty wax ring or a cracked tank or bowl might be the reason. At that time, the handyman will replace the wax ring or the affected part which is the best solution to the problem.

  • Running Toilet 

A fill valve or a faulty flapper valve can be the reason behind a running toilet. It is best to replace such faulty components. Moreover, replacing them is relatively easy and straightforward and can solve the issue within no time.

  • Flush Problems

Flush problems can be due to the improper working of the chain, flapper, and flush handle. These are the common flushing issues that can be solved by adjusting or replacing them as needed. 

  • Water Supply Issues

If there is any water supply issue, just ensure that the water supply valve is fully open. If still the problem with the water supply persists, call the professional to replace the fill valve.

Toilet Replacement

We have discussed above how the tradesmen help and identify the repairing problems in our toilets. Now let's discuss toilet replacements, why and when it is needed.


After assessing properly, tradesmen does not recommend repairing severely damaged toilets as it is not cost-effective to do so. Therefore, in such cases, a homeowner should opt for toilet replacement.

Selecting of a New Toilet

An occupant should choose a toilet that fits a bathroom's design and style, water efficiency and flushing capacity. Gravity-fed toilets and pressure-assisted toilets are very popular among toilet varieties. 

If an owner does not have any idea regarding what toilet to choose, you can hire a professional who can guide you about choosing the best toilet and will aid in replacing the toilet as well. 

Measuring and Preparing 

A tradesmen is trained in measuring the rough-in distance just to ensure that your new toilet should fit properly. They make sure the floor is level and stable. 

Removing the Old Toilet

When it is the time to replace your old toilet, before flushing it completely to empty the tank and bowl, a handyman (a hired professional) will turn off the water supply and remove the nuts and bolts that hold the toilet to the floor. Then, they carefully lift the old toilet and place it aside before installing the new one.

Installing the New Toilet

A tradesmen will place a wax ring on the flange and secure the new toilet to the floor. Further, they will connect the water supply line and adjust the tank and bowl components.

Testing the New Toilet

After the proper installation of a new toilet a handyman will turn on the water supply and will check for any leaks. A professional will flush the toilet multiple times to ensure it's proper functioning.
