How to do maintenance on your toilet
The most important type of maintenance you can do for your toilet is to clean it regularly, inside and out. Without proper cleaning, the porcelain finish on your toilet will wear off over time. This gives black mildew an ideal place for growth. For stubborn toilet stains, try a pumice stone. You can also put vinegar in the bowl and let it sit to help offset calcium buildup, which will help it flush better. To stay ahead of issues with your toilet and more, join Atlanta Star Plumbing’s Diamond Club. As a member, we’ll come to your house once annually and inspect your plumbing to ensure everything is running in tip top shape.
Toilet Repair FAQs
If you suspect a leaky toilet but aren’t sure, put several drops of food coloring in the toilet tank. Don’t flush it for 12 hours; just let it sit in the tank. If the food coloring ends up in the bowl of the toilet, you can confirm that you have a leak.
The age of your toilet is something to consider if you are having issues with it. Many older toilets are “low flush,” meaning they use no more than 1.6 gallons of water per flush. This type of toilet was popular many years ago, but modern plumbing doesn’t support its function. Angles of plumbing lines have changed over time, meaning homes now require different toilet types. If your toilet is an older low-flush model, you likely need a new one. Additionally, if your toilet is too low to the ground or you don’t like the style, you may need a new toilet. Whatever the case, call Atlanta Star Plumbing. We can help.
TOILET REPAIR REVIEWS
“Expansion tank on my water heater rusted out and blew like a geyser. I called Atlanta Star Plumbing and within 30 minutes, Britt was at my house saving the day. He is kind, professional, and skilled. He advised what needs to be replaced relatively soon but is ok for now, and fixed what was necessary. Quickly! Zero upsell pressure. He built so much trust during this first impression. I will for sure be calling on him soon to do the rest. Thank you to Maria too! When I called, she asked how she could make me smile today. They knocked it outta the park. I am smiling!”
“I would highly recommend Atlanta Star Plumbing! Very professional! They gave me a specific time they would arrive (instead of a large time window). Quickly identified the problem with our hot water and fixed it during the same visit - they had the repair parts in the truck. Extremely reasonable prices and even answered some additional plumbing questions I had that were not related to the problem at hand. All in all it was a great service experience!”
“I am a real estate agent and this is one for the record books! During the inspection, the water heater started to leak. While we watched, the pan filled up, and it was clear that the drain line out of the pan was not working. And we were in a second floor condo unit so a flood would have been double trouble! While the inspector bailed, I called Atlanta Star Plumbing and Britt was there to save the day within 30-45 minutes. He gave us an estimate, we got the OK from the owner of the property, he replaced the water heater (plus some components that had to be brought up to code), and cleaned up perfectly - and disaster was averted!”
