Why Does My Toilet Stop Up so Often?

Congress legislated the amount of water you can use to flush your toilet, limiting toilet manufacturers to 1.6 gallons per flush (GPF) from 3.2 GPF. When they first limited toilets to 1.6 gallons, toilet technology was sorta stuck because plumbers went from thinking about how to improve the conventional toilet to how to install the low flow toilet.

Why are Today’s Toilets Better?

Not all arebetter. Some make elaborate claims about flushing golf balls and other assorted objects you would never flush down the toilet. While they can flush golf balls all day, they still stop up under normal household usage. Fortunately, there are toilets that flush effectively, thanks to better designs, improved jetting action, and superior glazing. The best are only sold through plumbing companies, like us. We constantly research which toilets are the most effective and then provide you with the best toilet available so you’ll trust us with your plumbing needs.

What’s Involved in a Toilet Replacement?

You pick the color and we’ll take it from there. We’ll remove the old toilet and dispose of it for you. We’ll make sure the new one is properly sealed for sanitation and odor prevention. We’ll connect the water lines and others then secure it in place and so that your toilet will be running smoothly in no time.
