Toilets, Faucets & Sinks
We are the experts at quickly diagnosing and repairing various toilet issues that arise. Our technicians are experienced with all brands and models of toilets. Over the years, your toilet may not lose it's ability to function properly.
Some of the most common toilet problems that need professional service is:
- Leaking toilet: A toilet that leaks could be a result of a crack in the tank or bowl, worn washers or a rusty pipe.
- Clogged toilet: Low flow, blocked traps, clogged drain line or hard water build up can cause frequent stoppages.
- Constantly running: This is likely caused by a flapper that will no longer seal, problems with the chain or the handle.
*Turn off the water if your toilet is overflowing or leaking to prevent damage or additional complications*
We can help you pick out a new toilet if yours is in need of replacement. Our plumbers provide helpful insight into the innerworkings of your toilet you may not be as familiar with. One of the most important components is the interior trapway. (See picture below) This curved passage is located at the base of the toilet bowl, near the rear of the toilet, that runs to the exterior drain. This is a feature consumers often overlook when picking out their new toilet. However, the price of the toilet is often determined by the quality of parts used, much like this trapway. Lower quality toilets will have a porous, unglazed trapway. This makes you more susceptible to stoppages because the waste is not able to flow as freely like a better glazed trapway.
Your faucet is one of the most used fixtures in your home. The aesthetics of the sink area play a major role in the look and feel of your room. Kitchen and lavatory faucets have a wide variety of sizes, shapes, finishes and technologies available to you today. We can assist in picking out the one that will meet the demands for your lifestyle.
Faucets are designed to contain water until turned on. Faucets fail due to worn, broken or corroded parts. Signs of a failing faucet:
- Dripping from the spout
- Leaking around the handles
- Faucet that won't turn on or shut off all the way
Clarke Kent Plumbing are the experienced experts at repairing all types of faucets - compression, catridge, disk and ball.
It is always a good idea to check under your kitchen or bathroom sink for any leaks.
"After I replaced the cabinet floor once from a leaky faucet, I installed a battery operated alarm that alerted me to additional leaks years later."
