Common Toilet Issues You Shouldn’t Ignore
A toilet is an integral aspect of your home’s plumbing system. It safely collects and disposes of human waste to the sewer system or septic tank. However, you rarely think about your toilet until it develops a problem. It’s best to face issues head-on before they escalate into bigger issues. A.M. Plumbing & Rooter, your go-to plumbing company, lists some common toilet issues you should never ignore.
In some cases, your toilet can instinctively refill and flush, which is a situation called ghost flushing. You shouldn’t overlook this problem as it results in water wastage that can skyrocket your utility bills. Calling a professional plumber in Fallbrook, CA, to diagnose the root cause of ghost or phantom flushes is fundamental.
Another toilet problem that needs prompt plumbing services is a clogged toilet. Your toilet can clog due to flushing non-flushable items such as baby wipes, feminine products, cotton swabs, and face wipes. A clogged toilet is not only irritating but can also cause even more extensive damage, such as a flooded bathroom, if not addressed right away.
A leaking toilet is not only a nuisance, but it can also be risky, mainly if contaminated water appears on the floor. Toilet leaks can occur due to several reasons, including loose screws, faulty flappers, and inadequate caulking. Seek plumbing repairs right away to fix the problem because if you wait longer, the leak will worsen. This means more wasted water and potential damage to your bathroom floor.
The Bowl Takes Longer to Empty
If your toilet bowl takes longer than usual to empty, getting a plumbing expert to inspect and explain why it’s draining at a slower pace is the best move you can make to address and prevent the problem from recurring.

Here's What Our Customers Are Saying About Us.
This afternoon we found a leak after disconnecting our refrigerator. We called A.M. Plumbing. Their response time was excellent. They arrived to our house within an hour after calling them. When the plumber got to the house, he was able to rapidly diagnose and fix the problem. He was very professional, did a great job and they charged us a very reasonable fee. I would recommend A.M. Plumbing to anyone that needs plumbing repairs. Thank you, again, for a job well done!
I have called A.M. plumbing twice. Both times the service was excellent. He was able to talk to me about the problem and offer his recommendations. I found him to be trustworthy and reliable, which is what I am looking for in a plumber. I would highly recommend A.M.Dan Steele
Alex and his team are by far the easiest to work with! From the time I spoke with Kristen(sp?) to the time the job was complete they spoke to me like a person and not like I'm an idiot. I had a whole house repipe and an awesome never run out of hot water tankless water heater installed. They were professional and cleaned up after themselves. So glad to have found them on here and will be sure to pass along my experience with them to others. Thank you Alex and the team at AM, our family of 5 can finally have hot showers again!!
