Toilet Leak Repair

Water Closets (Toilets)

Water closets leaks often go undetected. Most commonly water closets leak at the flush valve inside the tank. This causes a very slow flow of water to pass from the tank to the bowl and down the drain. Often the only sympton of this issue is the fill valve opening for a few seconds periodically. Although this won't cause any damage to your home it will waste a massive amount of clean water. Other leaks to watch out for include leaks between the tank and bowl, at the base of the toilet and around the valve and supply line.

Valves

Probably the most common leak found in homes is a leaking valve or faucet. Valves, such as fixture shut-offs or isolation valves, tend to leak at the stem.

Valves may also leak internally due to worn washers, seats or seals, which means even when they are closed they will still allow water to flow. External leaks will often lead to costly water damage and mold issues, internal leaks can lead to complications when the valve is required in an emergency situation.
