Below is a list of toilet and bathroom plumbing related questions and answers to provide a quick guide to all your questions

 

Green Bathroom - Mr. Swirl

 

Why does my toilet sound like its constantly running? 

The chain on toilet flush lever inside the tank of your toilet may need adjusting as it may be too short or long. This could be causing the toilet to run for longer than necessary as its flushing is not successful repeatedly.

 

Why is my toilet so noisy when it flushes?

Any sudden change in the volume of the water in your toilet may be due to the water route flowing into the tank being somehow restricted and even possibly blocked. Thus, the regulating toilet parts where the water flows into the tank could be broken which can lead to these sudden column changes, resulting in the noisiness of the toilet. All broken parts can be individually replacing or replaced as a whole assembly.

 

Toilet Flushing - Mr. Swirl

 

Why does the temperature and water pressure of a shower change when someone flushes the toilet?

A large portion of the water supplied to your house is used in the shower, flowing out the shower head. So, when an individual flushes the toilet or a faucet is used in another section of the bathroom, or even the house, the water flow, water pressure, and water temperature changes almost instantly to accommodate to the new temporary changes in the system.

 

Why does my toilet fill up too quickly?

If your toilet is filling up too quickly, there’s a possibility that the tank is leaking into the bowl. This could be caused by a tangled chain or defective flappers.

 

Why is the water pressure in my shower so weak?

If there is accumulated debris or minerals and other waste substances restricting and clogging your shower head, then the water pressure can be low. There are several options to resolve this problem, ranging from changing the shower head, to DIY methods that can break down the accumulated clog. One DIY method is to fill up a bag with vinegar, place your shower head into the vinegar, and leave it overnight to breakdown the debris buildup.

 

How to fix a clogged bathtub drain?

Our first recommendation would be to call a professional Mr. Swirl plumber to handle the situation. However if you are set on resolving the problem, one thing you can try is use a metal end of a coat hanger, or the tool specifically designed for hair in drain to remove the hair blockage, as more often than not the blockage is hair. Then you can wash down the drain with warm water and liquid soap or other disinfectants. and follow by placing a drain strainer to prevent more hair going down the drain.
