It’s More than Just a Plunger

Oh the infamous Lavory, the Loo, the John, Porcelain Thrown and the many references to call the frequent pit stop of plumbing. The Toilet is one of the most used plumbing components in a household on a day-to-day regular basis and and usually one of the most under appreciated aspects of your house that seems to gain the most neglect.

You run out of toilet paper, what do you do – you replace it, simply because going without the silky smooth addition to the potty would make for a stinky caveman experience. Cleaning and maintaining your toilet is a whole different story – no one, we repeat, no one likes to do this and we get that, that’s why Tucker Plumbing prides itself on being the Super Hero of the John. No doo-ty (or job) is too big or too small for us to grasp a hold of and take action!

If you have one of those pesky toilets that always seems to clog, run, or lack flushing power (or maybe your toddler thought it would be fun to see what they could attempt to flush down the commode) – our team of Certified Master Plumbers can handle any repair, replacement, or install.

What’s more aggravating than a toilet that won’t flush? Water abruptly starts to rise in the bowl and begins spilling onto the floor as panic sets in. If a toilet requires plunging on a regular basis, there is probably a hidden obstruction causing all the annoyance. It could even be a symptom of a bigger problem farther down the sewer line – no fret though, we have you covered there.

If you hear water running in your toilet tank for extended periods after a flush, then your toilet is leaking, which also could lead to an increase in your water bill causing an even bigger headache. What this simply means is the toilet is dumping water and wasting 200+ gallons of water daily. The problem could be a corroded pipe, a flush assembly, or even a worn out flapper. Stop jiggling the handle or manipulating the thing-a-ma-jig and wasting away those water dollars to call Tucker Plumbing: 281-469-5354

Did you know most older toilets (pre-1994) use 3.5 gallons per flush? Yikes – talking about wasting water! Newer model toilets use only 1.6 gallons per flush and still provide the same flushing force of those older models. One of our Master Plumbers at Tucker Plumbing can install a new toilet that will conserve water and save you money on that water bill (cha-ching!).
