At Dan’s Plumbing & Septic, we understand that there are some simple plumbing jobs that a homeowner can do on their own. For example, replacing a flush valve in a toilet probably is not something that requires contacting a service like ours. However, we also understand that there is a line that divides what can be done by a homeowner and what should be done by a professional plumbing service like ours. That line may be different for every homeowner and may be further complicated by the nature of the repair that is needed. When it comes to a more complicated bathroom plumbing repair, we are here to help. We will give you an estimate based on the services needed.
A common bathroom plumbing repair issue we deal with is toilet repair and installation. It is probably within the abilities of most homeowners to replace the flush valve or fill valve in a toilet tank, as long as the reason for the failure of that part does not involve something more complex. Replacing an entire toilet, however, is not something we recommend as a project to try yourself. Toilets are usually durable, but they can fail. Porcelain, the material that most toilets are made of, has almost no elasticity. That means that if it is struck by a heavy and/or hard object, it can crack or shatter. If your toilet is shattered, it is clear that it should be replaced. The need to replace a toilet with a crack in it may not be quite as obvious. But that crack is an indication of a structural flaw, and that crack will only grow over time. The larger that crack grows, the more likely it is that your toilet will become unstable and/or shatter. Installing a new toilet requires experience and touch, which takes time, training, and practice to develop. Most homeowners do not have the level they need in order to guarantee no leaks.

Leaks are another common issue in bathroom repair. Finding the source of a leak—assuming it is not coming from the toilet you installed—can be tricky. The dynamics of water can make it appear that a leak is coming from one place, when in fact it is coming from another. No matter what kind of plumbing repair you need, Dan’s Plumbing & Septic is the qualified professional service to complete the job correctly.
