Toilet Repair

Although there are some minor exceptions, when there is something wrong with your toilet, you can usually tell. We at Benjamin Franklin Plumbing have extensive experience servicing residential toilets and sewer lines, and we have provided a list below of some of the most prevalent toilet problems we have encountered. If you run into any of these problems, and a plunger doesn’t do the trick, give us a call.

Running ToiletPlumbing contractor installing a new toilet in a bathroom

When your toilet continually runs, it can be an annoyance as well as a drain on your wallet. There could be a number of issues, from the flapper chain and seal to a fill valve leak or an installation issue, so it’s best to ask for a professional opinion before you see a spike in your water bills.


The bane of toilets everywhere! Sometimes a clogged toilet is easily repaired, even though it’s an unpleasant task. With a plunger in hand, it usually takes less than a minute to clear a minor clog. However, if your clog takes up residence further down the pipe or is unyielding and causing an unsanitary overflow, our specialists can get that toilet flushing like new. We can also provide convenient toilet replacement options.

Leaks & Phantom Flushes

Ever hear your toilet flush when no one is in the bathroom? Most likely it’s not a ghost, just a slow leak between the tank and toilet bowl causing the toilet to flush. Much like a running toilet, a phantom leak can cost you in the long run. It’s better not to wait – call Benjamin Franklin Plumbing to detect and repair your leaky toilet.

If you have recently bought a home or your bathroom desperately needs an upgrade, contact the experts at Benjamin Franklin Plumbing.

When you have issues with your toilet, sometimes they are merely problems that occur over the course of the toilet’s lifespan, but other times they could be caused by a careless installation. At Benjamin Franklin Plumbing, our committed plumbers can guarantee a 100 percent correct toilet installation or replacement for our valued clients.

Toilet Won’t Flush

Your toilet can fail for reasons related to your drains, pipes, sewer lines, or the toilet itself. Either way, it’s unpleasant and unsanitary. Diagnosing the cause of this filthy disaster requires the expert skill of one of our plumbing experts. Other plumbers might offer a quick fix rather than a real solution. Trust the experts of Benjamin Franklin Plumbing, because we guarantee our work—every time.

Leaking Or Running Toilet

A leaking or running toilet wastes hundreds of gallons of water — yet these problems often don’t create a mess. That means most homeowners don’t notice – until they see the spike in their water bill. If you suspect you have a leaking or running toilet, one of our experts will diagnose and solve your leaking or running toilet issue.

Upgrade To A Water Saving Toilet

When you upgrade to a 21st century water-efficient toilet, you could save more than $100 per year. Our plumbers specialize in dual-flush and low flow toilets. Dual flush toilets have two different flush settings for solid and liquid waste, meaning you only use as much water as is necessary. Low flow toilets are extremely effective even though they use less water than wasteful, older models. Both of these 21st century toilet save water and save you money!
