There is absolutely nothing to be ashamed of, and if you feel like any minor repair, you may attempt might cause more harm than good to your toilet. It is best to call in the professionals. Otherwise, a relatively minor issue can spiral into something a lot more deadly if you unconfidently try to fix an issue.
This puzzling issue tends to crop up either in locations where it is a lot colder all year round, or during and sometimes after the winter period. When your toilet is struggling to obtain water, it usually means that your house may be suffering from frozen pipes. In blisteringly cold conditions, it is not at all unusual to see your house pipes freezing, which tends to have a negative impact on your toilet’s ability to flush. Now, if your pipes are frozen, please try to not use any ‘at home remedies’ because you could make the problem a whole lot worse set of consequences than just your toilet being blocked. Instead, call your local plumber, as they will have access to a thawing machine which will irradiate the issue and have water flowing through your pipes and towards your toilet in no time.
Typically, it is not unusual to miss this sign of a blocked or damaged toilet. If you see standing water around your toilet, you may think it could have come from your shower, bath, or bathroom sink, and you may opt to simply clean up the mess and then forget all about it.
But if you are noticing a puddle or leak around the base of your toilet, it may be as a result of a broken seal. While a broken seal, compared to previously mentioned issues, may seem like a minor inconvenience that you may be able to fix yourself, we advise that you always call your plumber. If you opt to do it yourself, while it may appear that you have fixed the broken seal, there could be further problems that cannot be so easily seen.
So, if you notice a leak that could be due to a potentially broken seal, opt to call a plumber to come and fix the issue, irrespective whether it’s a residential or a commercial plumbing problem.
