Old vs. Modern toilets maintenance and repairs
Modern toilets are quite dissimilar to those toilets we had decades ago. These items were also touched by the hand of technological progress and have significantly raised their efficiency level. If you have a ten-year-old toilet, it probably uses from seven to ten gallons of water per one flush. Today’s toilets use only from one and a half to three gallons. Imagine what an impact on water consumption it may have if you, for example, have hundreds of bathrooms in your commercial facility. It can be concluded that in case of your old toilet’s failure it would be wiser to replace the item with the new one, rather than returning to repairing it time after time.
How to fix a commercial toilet?
Different types of toilets require different lead-ups for repairs. Common toilet issues we face on a daily basis are the following:
- Constantly running toilet;
- Blocked toilet;
- Toilet doesn’t flush;
- Toilet tank/bowl leaking;
- Toilet overflow
In general, the cause of your toilet problem may hide either in the item itself or inside the drainpipe it is connected to. Toilet backups and overflows are usually caused by clogged drains and sewers. For its cleaning, a snaking or hydro-jetting technology may be required. After a drain is washed through, the toilet will continue working. Meanwhile, if your toilet is constantly running, it has nothing to do with the drain, as most likely you have a malfunctioning valve or float mechanism inside the toilet tank.
If your commercial toilet’s drains are connected to the septic system on the other side, both running and backing up toilets shall be considered an emergency case. Constantly running water can overload the septic system resulting in drain field overflow and soil contamination. If you ignore that problem for long enough, that can lead to ecological catastrophe for the whole neighbourhood and to significant legal sanctions for you and your business.
