Toilet Repair and Installation
Water-Saving Toilet Installations
According to the EPA, toilets account for approximately 30% of water usage in a typical household. If you still have a toilet installed before 1994, whether in a household or business setting, you can save money by upgrading to a modern model. Older toilets consume more than double the amount of water per flush compared to those manufactured in 1994 or later.
When it comes to choosing the right plumbers for your new toilet installation, it can be a daunting and complex task. However, you can trust Atlas Plumbing & Heating to handle the job with expertise. Our team of professionals specializes in toilet installation and repair. They are not only skilled and efficient but also friendly and approachable, ensuring effective communication throughout the entire process. As a family-owned and operated business, we prioritize building and maintaining strong relationships with our customers, providing dependable and trustworthy service you can rely on.
What Is the Average Water Usage of a Toilet?
Recent advancements in toilet engineering have resulted in the development of highly efficient models that use significantly less water per flush. Older toilets typically consumed 3.5 gallons of water per flush, while newer ones have been engineered to utilize just 1.6 gallons. The most recent versions have further reduced this figure to a mere 1.28 gallons.
By upgrading to a water-efficient toilet, you can experience substantial savings in your monthly energy expenditures. These modern designs prioritize water conservation without compromising on performance. Not only will you contribute to environmental sustainability, but you will also enjoy the financial benefits of reduced water consumption. Make the switch to a more water-efficient toilet and witness a noticeable decrease in your utility bills.

The most common toilet problems that plumbers fix are:
Clogged Drain Pipes Or Sewer Lines
Often, your home’s main sewer may be blocked, producing difficulties with your home’s pipes without your knowledge. Some warning signs include gurgling noises or bubbles coming from your toilet. You should also watch for rising water from your toilets or drains, as this might indicate a blocked drain line or a clogged main sewer.
Toilet Flange Repair
The toilet flange is an essential component of your toilet. The ring secures the toilet to the ground and is often composed of plastic or metal. A cracked toilet flange is dangerous and might cause significant damage, such as breaking the toilet sealant and allowing your toilet to leak.
This may cause your bathroom to flood, as well as other expensive issues that you can prevent. Repairing a toilet flange is not your standard “do it yourself” project and may be difficult. Atlas Plumbing & Heating can ensure that your toilet flange is fixed swiftly and accurately.
Leaking Toilet Repair
One of the most prevalent residential toilet problems is leaking toilets. If you find a leaking toilet, you should contact a professional immediately since you might be squandering thousands of gallons of water each year! Minor leaks may sometimes go undetected and become more significant problems if neglected.
Weak Toilet Flush
Is your toilet not flushing completely? This might be an indication of a faulty toilet flush. Toilets built in houses many years ago may have a weak flush over time. This is caused by the buildup of minerals and debris, such as rust, within your toilet bowl’s rim and jet hole. In such a case, water is naturally obstructed from entering the toilet bowl. This causes a weak flush, which prevents your toilet from flushing completely.
Broken Toilet Flush Flapper Valve
The flapper valve on your toilet is the stopper, also known as the valve seal, that acts to flush the toilet. This is usually caused by the chain that links the flapper valve to the handle. Typically, all you need to do is replace the flapper valve; however, there have been situations when homeowners attempted this but were still left with a continually running toilet.
This might imply that the flush valve seat is causing the problem. Allow a professional to repair it fast and accurately so you can have a fully functional toilet back in no time.
Malfunctioning Toilet Refill Valve
Do you have issues with your toilet fill valve? In this scenario, you must ensure that the refill valve is wholly replaced. However, like in the case of a damaged toilet flapper valve, a defective refill valve is only sometimes the sole reason your toilet may be continually running.
Worn-Out Toilet Seal
The toilet sealant is an essential component of your toilet and bathroom. This wax sealant is positioned at the toilet’s bottom and shaped like a ring. It is not only in charge of keeping water from leaking from your toilet and onto your bathroom floor, but it also avoids other expensive house problems. Toilet sealant typically lasts at least 20 years; however, certain toilets may need sealant replacement sooner than others due to factors such as climate.
Toilet Installation Issues
Many aspects go into properly installing a toilet, and incorrect installation may result in various long-term and short-term problems. It may cause persistent toilet leaks, as well as other sections of the toilet, to cease working correctly. This is where our toilet installation specialists can assist.

The cost varies greatly depending on the cause of the issue. Some problems may exist outside the toilet, drain pipe, or water pipes that feed the tank.
The flapper is most likely malfunctioning. To stop the water flow, open your tank and push it down.
There might be fractures in your toilet or faulty seals.
Your handle may be loose, or the float shuts off the water before the tank is full.
It all depends on what’s wrong! No two fixes are the same.
Most toilets are designed to fit an industry-standard rough-in, but several outliers exist. You may need a non-standard toilet to replace another non-standard toilet, or you may require changes to your bathroom.
When a single repair costs more than a replacement, you either have repeated repairs or need a new toilet.
