Signs You Need Toilet Installation and Repair

There are, unfortunately, many things that can go wrong with your private commode.  And since this is the most frequently used fixture in your home, it can cause quite a headache when something finally does. It can often be hard for home owners to decide between a new toilet installation and repairs.  But what signs should you look out for, and what do each of them mean?  Let Midway of Clearwater, St. Petersburg, and Tampa help.

Clogged – One of the most common reasons we are called, when there is a clog, you know it.  Many times, however, the clog cannot be undone with a plunger alone.

Constantly running or the tank will not fill – There are several possible causes to a constantly running tank, such as defective parts in the Flush valve assembly. This is usually the central cause of any leaking in the tank as it consists of moving parts that both drain and seal. It can therefore be prone to corrosion and/or deterioration.   These are the parts that could become defective:

  • Over flow tube and seal – If it is not seated correctly, water can leak at the base.
  • Float or Float Cup – If it becomes stuck down, or doesn’t trigger properly, the water will continue to fill – draining into the overflow tube that is there to prevent flooding.
  • Flapper Valve – If a flapper is old, and the rubber is rotting, it can fail to seal properly or stop closing at all.  The symptoms can range from the tank needing to top itself off periodically even when it is not in use, to being unable to fill at all.
  • Sponge gasket  –  If it has deteriorated, it will cause a leak between the tank and bowl
  • Lock nut – If not tightened properly, it will also cause the same leak as the gasket.
  • Handle – Handles that have seen a lot of use can become stuck and will either not allow the tank to fill, or will not let the flapper valve fall into place.  A simple and painless toilet repair can fix all of these in no time.

Cracked tank/leaking – If the tank or bowl has cracked, the result could vary from an almost undetectable trickle of water that can seep into your floorboards causing mold growth and rot over time; to copious amounts of water to pool on the floor. Cracks also compromise the strength of the bowl, potentially creating a safety hazard and requiring a new toilet installation.

Water leaking out around the base – This is often a sign that the wax ring which connects the base to the sewer line is no longer sealing.  Your technician will need to remove the entire fixture to replace the seal.

Had several bids to replace our entire HVAC system that crashed. Midway Services gave a great price and advice on the system we needed. Installed in 1-day and with extreme professionalism. We could not have been more satisfied. Their Techs were amazing and even cleaned the house before leaving. I was surprised that they did not even break for lunch so we got them pizza which they grabbed from time to time as they kept working. What a crew! Highly reccomend Midway and, in fact, we will be using them for the remodel of our bathroom and enlargement of our bedroom.

I have been using Midway Services for about 6 or 7 years. They have always been professional, responsive and good communicators. They respond quickly to needs of their customers every time. I have recommended them to several people. I give them an A+++

Midway Services is my call to outstanding work and professionalism by a staff highly trained to repair, remodel, replace and improve home ownership. After 26 years of owning and diligently caring for our home, it just began needing more assistance. A new hot water heater, toilets, tired bathrooms, hard water deposits, outlets that shut off, and the list went on. In the past seven months I have had the experience to work with Midway employees who have entered our home as professional members of a company they take pride in working for. Their work is outstanding. I can hardly wait for them to begin my kitchen remodel! I am proud to say Midway Services is a company I would highly recommend. Their customer satisfaction and work ethic is present every time a service person steps up to the door with Midway Services on that shirt.

We had an emergency with our AC unit one evening and Midway Services sent out HVAC service Dom L. He was fantastic! He temporarily fixed the problem so our AC worked that night until the part came in a few days later. Dom sat with us and gave us all of our options with prices. He made us feel very comfortable in choosing the best option for us (even since our unit was a quite few years old.) He was very upfront and honest on our options and let us choose the best route for us. We appreciated his honesty. We had some water leaking a few days later and we requested Dom back and he fixed the leak and replaced all the new parts that came in. He worked very hard and cleaned over and beyond (it was more cleaning that he thought.) He even took our wet rugs (we had in our garage) out to dry! He went over and beyond. He was very knowledgeable, hard working, kind and explained everything to us thoroughly. We would highly recommend Midway Services to everyone. They are very reliable, hard working, honest and Dom was exceptional!

I had a very good experience with Midway Services. A pipe had burst underneath the foundation of my home. In trying to get a handle on all that was needed, I called about 10 or so plumbers in the area. Some neither answered my calls nor returned my message, others never showed, and still others showed but tried to up-sell me on other things or showed a lack of concern for my particular situation. Mike from Midway, on the other hand, took his time in assessing the situation. While his estimate was in the middle ground, I could see he wanted to do his best to not disturb my home (even though the job required running all-new plumbing throughout). He also seemed to have a firmer hand on what the job called for. It seems my house was a particularly difficult case, as all the plumbers told me, but Mike went further to figure out the best plan with the least damage to the home. Mike came in and completed the four-day job as he planned. He also been very responsive after the fact, answering my calls and making himself available for any other questions I imposed. In all, I definitely recommend Midway for your plumbing needs.

A/C system had not been working for a while, even though multiple people had tried to fix it. Tommy and Joey came out and took care of the problem and were extremely professional and pleasant. Could not be happier with the service we received. Highly recommend this company.
