The Leaky Toilet: How Much Does It Cost to Fix It?
- By: Joe WebsterServicesComment: 0
There are some things in your home or commercial space that you always want to work. And the toilet is, by far, on top of that list.
There are truly few things worse than a defective toilet. This can create a lot of problems for everyone in the household or the entire building, depending on the issue at hand.
If your toilet is leaking, you should not ignore it. The problem may be minor, but there could also be something more going on. In any case, Anytime Plumbers is here to help, so call us now!
The Cost of a Leaky Toilet
Fixing a leaky toilet can be a simple job that will only take out 10-20 dollars out of your pocket if, for instance, it’s just a matter of replacing the flapper. This is a rather easy job, and you can expect the plumber bill to match it.
Other times, the problem can be a tad more extensive, in which case the cost grows. The final cost of the job will essentially depend on:
- The actual problem that causes the leak;
- Any materials that may be necessary to fix it;
- How long the job will take.
Still, it’s best not to avoid the problem because a toilet leak can add up a lot in water bills. You may even be looking at roughly $1,000 a year more on water because of it, possibly even more if the leak makes you lose a lot of water.
How Can We Help?
We encourage homeowners or commercial building owners to call in a professional team of plumbers to take a look at the leaky toilets. The best-case scenario is that it’s a minor issue that only takes up a few minutes of your time. Once we fix it, you don’t have to worry about it again.
But on the off chance that there’s something more going on, it’s essential to have a professional team run some tests to see if there’s more than what’s on the surface. In the long run, this can save you money not just on your water bill, but also possible extensive plumbing costs later on if the problem progresses.
Some causes of a leaky toilet can include:
- Cracks in the tank or bowl;
- Rusted pipes;
- Worn out or loose tank to bowl connections;
- Worn out flapper;
- Damaged flush valve;
- Damage seal at the bottom of the toilet.
The first step we’ll do is figuring out what is causing the leak in the first place, and then come up with a plan on how to fix it. In some cases, we may find that you’d be better off replacing the toilet altogether.
In any case, we will first give you a price estimate for the job, which you can use to make an informed decision.
