Signs You Need Toilet Repairs in Buellton, CA

Call us at Coast Plumbing Solutions when your toilet leaks, overflows, does not flush, barely flushes, or continues running. We will address your plumbing issue immediately because we know how inconvenient a malfunctioning toilet can be.

When you notice these signs, your toilet needs attention:

  • If flushing seems weak, slow, and does not clear the contents of the bowl, the rim jets—tiny holes under the toilet rim—may to clogged. The siphon hole on the bottom of the bowl also may be corroded with mineral buildup. The toilet float inside your tank may need adjustment.
  • Water around the bottom of the toilet indicates a leak from a broken seal or cracks in the porcelain.
  • If you need to jiggle the handle, your toilet may need a new flapper valve.
  • The fill valve may be worn if the toilet bowl does not fill after flushing.
  • An overflowing toilet typically indicates a clog.

You can count on Coast Plumbing Solutions to provide affordable, quality repairs and installations.

Installing a New Toilet

How do you know when it is time to replace your toilet? Age is a significant factor when weighing repairs versus replacement. It may continue to operate after 20 years, but it also may waste water and cost you money.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) says toilets are the main source of water use in homes. Older, inefficient toilets that use more than six gallons per flush are a significant source of wasted water.

Toilet Repairs

Our plumbing pros at Coast Plumbing Solutions can help you choose a quality toilet with a strong flush and water-saving efficiency. Replacing your old toilet is a cost-effective alternative to frequent repairs.

Other signs you should consider replacement:

  • Cracked porcelain leads to leaks.
  • If your tank leaks, consider replacing the entire toilet. It makes better financial sense.
  • An older toilet that clogs frequently is ready for replacement.

Toilet Maintenance Tips

You can prevent common toilet repairs by making maintenance a habit in your home. Avoid flushing wipes, feminine hygiene products, cotton swabs, and other paper items into your plumbing system, even if the labeling claims they are flushable. They are likely to clog your toilet or pipes.

Take a close look at your toilet. Inspect for wet areas or water accumulation at its base, the signs of a leak. Add a few drops of food coloring to your tank, wait about 15 to 30 minutes, and check the bowl. If the bowl contains colored water, your tank is leaking.

Test the valve that shuts off water to your toilet. Consider replacing it if it is rusty or resists movement.

“I've relied on Coast Plumbing in Santa Barbara twice now, and they've consistently delivered top-notch service for all my plumbing concerns. Both times, I had the pleasure of having Jerry Henson as my plumber. I appreciate the continuity of service and the comfort of having a familiar face.

One of the things I appreciate most is their user-friendly online appointment system. It made setting up a time for the service incredibly convenient, allowing me to choose from a variety of dates and times that worked for me. In terms of pricing, they provide upfront estimates, and I've consistently found them to be fair and accurately reflecting the labor involved. No surprises or hidden fees – just transparent and reasonable.

They provide updates on their arrival and a cool touch I noticed is that they text you a photo of your plumber, along with a nice description of your plumber's interests. It adds a human and down-to-earth element to the entire situation and is useful to help you know when they arrive!

Beyond their technical expertise, what sets Coast Plumbing apart is their friendly and helpful demeanor. They genuinely care about resolving issues and ensuring customer satisfaction. As someone who tends to overthink, dealing with plumbing issues isn't ideal, but they've made the process smooth and stress-free each time.

Overall, I highly recommend Coast Plumbing, especially with Jerry Henson, for their professionalism, fair pricing, and kind customer service. I couldn't be more satisfied with their work.”

“I have had to call Coast Plumbing TWICE this month and they have been WONDERFUL. Both technicians really knew their stuff and were so professional yet friendly and informative. This last visit, I had a time issue and asked for an early arrival and got that with no problem. The issue with the toilets was diagnosed and a solution was given to us that made so much sense. WE will be shopping for our new toilets (boy, these were old!) and we will be calling Coast Plumbing to put them in and get them up and running for us. It is a no-brainer to use these guys and I am so glad they are here in the Valley for us. I highly recommend them.”
