Toilet Repair & Installation in Dallas, TX
Homeowners often go months or even years battling a toilet in need of repairs, only relenting out of frustration or, unfortunately, when problems grow so big that they cannot be ignored. If your toilet isn’t performing up to standards, then don’t delay; the sooner you repair it, the sooner you can quit being annoyed by it — and the less likely it is that the problem grows into something bigger that’s more expensive to resolve.

Common Reasons Toilets Need Repair or Replacement
We deal with a lot of toilets around the Dallas area. Here are some of the most common reasons we’re called out:

- Corrosion of parts
- Cracks in the bowl
- Toilet too old
- Repeat repairs require replacement
- Permanent buildup in internal structures
Basic Troubleshooting Tips (and When to Call a Plumber)
There are a few problems with your toilet that you can probably fix on your own — and if you can’t, you can at least minimize damage and know it’s time to call a plumber.
Overflowing toilet. Cut off the water supply at the side of the toilet, open the tank, and push down the flapper to prevent more water from moving from the tank into the bowl.
Venting problems. If the water level rises and lowers for no reason, you might have a vent problem. If you’re comfortable doing so, you can check the roof above your toilet to make sure a cap wasn’t left in place.
No water or flushing. Check the tank in the back. The float may be set such that it rises too high and cuts off the water supply before the tank is filled properly.
Obstruction. A plunger can defeat many clogs. For others, consider dropping in hot soapy water or bleach and giving it a few minutes.
If you have repeat problems or leaks, or if you smell sewer gas, it’s probably time to call a plumber.
When to Repair vs. Replace
If your single repair is going to be nearly as expensive as a replacement, you’ve had a series of problems with this toilet before, or you’re interested in a new toilet anyway, replacing now instead of later makes sense.

How much does it cost to repair a toilet?
The cost can vary significantly, depending on the source of the problem. Some toilet issues may lay outside of the toilet itself, in your drain pipe or in the water lines feeding the tank.
Why won’t my toilet stop running?
The flapper is likely not working properly. Open your tank and push it down to block the flow of water.
Why is water leaking from my toilet?
Your toilet may have cracks, or seals may have been damaged.
Why won’t my toilet flush?
Your handle might be loose, or the float might have cut off water before the tank filled.
How long will it take to repair my toilet?
It depends on what’s wrong with it! No two repairs are exactly alike.
Do all toilets fit the same?
Most toilets fit an industry-standard rough-in, but there are exceptions. You may need a non-standard toilet to replace another non-standard toilet, or you might need to make adjustments to your bathroom.
When should you replace your toilet?
When a single repair costs a significant portion of a replacement, or you’ve had multiple repairs, or you want a new toilet.
