Toilet Repair

Need toilet repair services? Fixing the toilet is a priority whether it’s clogged or leaking. You and your family do not want to experience the hassles. The call of nature is always unexpected. It’s not right to set aside the problem for the next day. You have to act now. You also do not want your visitors to see the problem. Anytime they could use the bathroom and you have no excuses to delay solving the issue.

About leaking and clogged toilets

The need for immediate action is obvious. If it is about the leak, you need to stop the wastage of water. The leakage might also prevent the toilet from being flushed properly. The waste might not go down properly and you might need more water to make it go down.

You also need to do toilet repair immediately if it’s clogged. Aside from being a gruesome sight, the water might overflow. Many of us have the tendency to use force and more water to make the waste go down. The thing is the waste won’t still go down.  That results to water overflow and some flooding on the surrounding area. That leads to more problems.

So how can you do toilet repair? Let us discuss how to repair clogged and leaking toilets.

Clogged toilet repair

One of the most common causes of clogged toilets is the accumulation of toilet paper and waste. Another cause is the accidental flushing of common objects such as small toys and jewelries. Those things clog the toilets and prevent the waste from going further down. So the obvious solution is to remove the clog or make it move further down. This way the water and the waste can freely move.

The first solution that comes to mind is plunging. If you choose to do it, you need to do some preparations. For example, you don’t want to avoid wetting the floors. You need to put some old newspapers around to keep the floor dry. No matter how careful you are, plunging will cause some water to drip on to the nearby surface.

Most of us know how to use a plunger. You just put it in the toilet and do some pumping. The goal is for the clog to move slightly so it goes further down the drain. You do this repeatedly until the water in the toilet somehow clears up. That’s the signal that the clog has successfully moved down.

If plunging doesn’t work, some people use chemicals to dissolve the clog somehow. Just be careful with that because chemicals might cause harm to your eyes and skin. Some also use a drain snake to remove the clog. But it’s still advisable to hire professionals to do the drain snaking. They know what specific tools to use and how to do the job properly.

Leaking toilet repair

Leaking or running toilets are a bit harder to fix than the clogged ones. Why? Because you have to know the parts and any amount of force won’t help much. If you do a leaking toilet repair carelessly, the problems could get worse and the flush won’t work properly at all.

To give you an idea, here’s how to fix your leaking toilet. First you need to make sure that it’s actually leaking. You remove the lid of the tank and put some blue fabric conditioner into it. Then you wait for at least 10 minutes. If the water in the toilet bowl becomes blue, that’s a clear sign there’s a leak.

Once you’re sure there’s a leak, you now need to fix it. First figure out what causes the leak. Is it the flapper? Maybe because it has accumulated deposits or it just got warped due to old use. You might need to clean or replace it depending on the situation.

Is it the plastic balloon? Is it the chain that connects the flush lever and rubber flapper? Replacements might be needed to get rid of the running toilet problem. Most people would get lost at this because it’s not that simple. You have to do a few tests so you’re sure of the problem.

That’s why many homeowners just prefer experienced professionals to do the running toilet repair. It’s much simpler and they really solve the problem. It’s not just for running toilets. Clogged toilets might also need a professional hand to do the job.

Blocked toilet

A clogged toilet is an unexpected hassle for any household. A blocked toilet happens at the most inconvenient time. Maybe it’s midnight or a visitor is coming by. You don’t want your visitor to see that ugly sight. That is why you need a quick solution that will make your toilet working perfectly again.

A blocked toilet problem can be usually classified in two ways. First is the mild one. That is common and a plunger can already do the job. The second is the severe problem. Using the plunger is not enough. What you need to do is to use a drain snake. Professionals can do the drain snaking for you if you don’t want any hassle.

We will discuss the two ways in dealing with blocked toilets. Prepare yourself if you prefer a DIY approach. It could be much easier (and cheap) if you just hire a professional to do the job.

Unclog toilet – fixing a blocked toilet using a plunger

Let’s first discuss how to do it yourself. Notice that a blocked toilet almost overflows with water. The water and other stuff don’t pass through because of the clogs. A plunger might help you with that.

Here’s how a plunger works. Plunging makes a pressure difference above and below the clog. That pressure difference causes the clog to move. If the clog moves, it has a chance of freeing itself and finding a path downwards. It’s problem solved.

But before using the plunger to unclog toilets, there are a few things you should do first. We’ve mentioned earlier that the toilet might overflow with water. More water won’t solve the problem. That’s why you should not flush again. The problem will be worse if you do that.

What you need to do then is to prepare the area around the toilet. Cover the floor with some newspapers. Plunging might make some of the water splash throughout. Also open the ventilation fan. This way foul odors won’t be much of a problem.

In most cases you might just need a plunger. But it might not work even after several attempts. That means the problem is severe, and the clog is solid. Even after using chemicals it might not be enough to unclog toilet.

Next is you insert the plunger. You push it downward and pull upward. You might need to do this at least 20 times. That’s what it takes before the clog moves and flows further.

Unclog toilet using a drain snake

A blocked toilet might not be solved just by plunging. It’s best to use other methods if you’re tired using the plunger and still nothing happens. One common method is drain snaking.

Here’s how a drain snake works. It enters into the toilet and hooks the clog. The clog might be pushed further or pulled upward. Contrast that to plunging. Drain snaking goes right straight to the problem.

You can readily buy a drain snake from your local hardware store. You can then do it yourself if you have the time. Here’s a warning however. Be careful and try not to damage the toilet surface. You also need to be careful for yourself. A drain snake might cause physical injuries if you’re not careful.

A common type of drain snake is the toilet auger. It’s different than the hand spinner. The hand spinner is not usually suitable for unclogging toilets. The wire might damage the surrounding toilet surface in its path. On the other hand, the toilet auger is the only choice if you want to do it yourself. It has a plastic boot at the end that prevents toilet damage.

AAADrain professionals can help you with that. We will go straight to the problem. We will use a drain snake to unblock and make the restroom available to use immediately. He will skillfully use the drain snake to completely remove the clog. You should let a professional unclog toilet if you want to keep your hands clean.

Drain Cleaning: Blockage and Backup

Drain Cleaning

Hello friends.

Today we want to talk about drain cleaning.

A need for drain cleaning usually originates when you get a backup. Fortunately, in many cases, you can fix the problem yourself in a few steps.

First off, do not panic and use water. Take a look, and try to find where the backup originates from. You have several options:
• Basement floor drain
• Basement laundry
• Toilet or bathtub
• Kitchen sink

If the backup comes from the floor drain and the water returns to the basement after its use anywhere in your home, then the problem lies on the main line after the connection with the floor drain.

You can solve this problem with a big mechanical snake.

If a backup from the laundry reaches the basement, and the floor near the floor drain id dry, then the problem is usually located at the spot the stack connects with the drain line. If your stack also contains a cleanout, the problem can also be solved with a big mechanical snake.
You can rent a mechanical snake from stores like Home Depot and do everything yourself. This does not require any special knowledge or license. By doing it yourself you also save your money.


Blockages of bathtubs, sinks and toilets not located in the basement can usually be solved with a manual plunger, present in almost every household.
Now I would like to stop on the causes of blockage in your pipes. These problems usually belong to either of these two categories:
• Human-caused
• Human-independent

Let us start with the first category. When washing dishes try to prevent the flow of food particles and excess fat into the sewage system. Use extra protection for your kitchen sink, wipe the oil with a paper towel and dispose of it in the trash.

Try to prevent foreign objects from getting into your sink. If you have a dog – keep the toilet shut. We have pulled out 11 dog toys once while replacing a trap.

Preventing a backup is not that difficult.

Also, make sure that your line does not contain a building trap.

If you still had a backup, and you cannot deal with it yourself, do not hesitate to call us. We will solve all your problems at a time convenient for you.
We have extensive and comprehensive experience coupled with the best equipment. All our work is licensed and covered by insurance.
