Common Causes of a Leaky Toilet

There is never a good time for a toilet leak! The best way to avoid leaky toilets is to understand what causes the leak in the first place and hire the right Los Angeles or Orange County plumber to take care of the issue quickly. Here are some of the main causes of leaky toilets:

Corrosion

Corrosion at any point of your plumbing, from the pipes to the toilet assembly itself, can cause a leak. Corrosion is the first problem to call one of our Southern California plumbers for, since it occurs from the inside out and creates more damage than perhaps any other complication.

Cracks in the Toilet Bowl or Tank

Cracked toilet bowls not only look bad, but they cause all kinds of internal structural damage if they are not taken care of in a timely manner. The tank of the toilet is where water initially flows when the toilet is flushed. If this is cracked, you can get water damage throughout the house. The right plumbers will be able to fix small cracks before they become larger and begin leaking into the walls or onto  the floor.

Tank Bowl Gasket

The tank bowl gasket is another issue for a professional plumber. The gasket is the part of the toilet that connects the bowl to the tank. If these two pieces are separated, then a great deal of leakage can occur within a relatively short period of time.
