Toilet Problem Repair for Baltimore Residents

What’s the Best Way to Check for Toilet Leaks?

Toilet leaks can be wasteful and expensive. At least once a year, check your toilet for leaks by adding a small amount of red food coloring to the tank, and then check the toilet bowl later. If the toilet bowl water is colored red, water is seeping through from the tank. If it is leaking, you should replace the tank ball.

How do high-efficiency toilets work?

High-efficiency toilets are designed to flush waste matter into your sewer or septic system with less water than conventional toilets. While these modern toilets are required for new construction in many cities, many homeowners are electing to replace their old toilets now to help the environment and save on utility bills.

Toilets manufactured before 1997 can use several gallons of water per flush. Modern toilets use 1.6 gallons per flush and certain models use as little as 1 gallon per flush. Some toilets come with two options for flushing, so you can use less water for purely liquid waste.

Design on these toilets has come a long way. When they were first introduced, many found them to be less effective at removing waste sometimes requiring a second flush. Like any other major appliance, designs improve over time and high efficiency toilets are no exception. The new models are quite effective and can save you several gallons of water with every flush.

We can help you understand the benefits of high efficiency appliances and systems including Federal and local tax credits and rebates.
