Common Toilet Parts That Break
The continual “running sound” of your toilet marks the first indication that you need plumbing repairs. This constant running noise implies that water is constantly filling without you flushing the toilet. Here are common parts within toilets that tend to break.
Continous Running Water May Indicate a Broken Flapper Valve
Located inside the toilet at the top of the tank, the flapper valve is submerged in water until someone presses the toilet handle. This flapper valve—usually comprised of a thick rubber—controls the flushing component.
An aging flapper valve hardens overtime, prohibiting the flapper to seal properly. This then activates the constant running sound, signaling that water is seeping from the tank to the bowl. Our team of professional toilet plumbers is able to help you replace or repair your flapper valve. We offer trusted toilet repair and installation solutions in locations such as DuPage County, Cook County, and Will County. Receive immediate assistance from a 24 hour plumbing specialist at Stephens Plumbing.
Toilet Flushing Issues May Be Caused By a Malfunctioning Flush Level Rod
As the most likely to break, the flush level rod typically consists of brass or steel and lifts the flapper, taking water from the bowl when flushed. Since the level is positioned within the toilet, water gradually corrodes the rod over time until it breaks. If you have a broken flush level, schedule a toilet plumbing appointment. Give us a call by phone at (630) 968-0783 or fill out our Appointment Request Form.
Dry & Damaged Toilet Wax Seal
The wax seal around the base of the toilet sits on the drain of the bathroom floor and connects to the sewer. Over time, the wax seal dries and crackles, allowing water to seep onto the floor. Worst-case scenario, water may even leak underneath your toilet, causing tremendous damage.
A Damaged Float System is Not Able to Regulate Toilet Water in the Tank
The Float system—a drifting device within the toilet—flows up with the rising water level until reaching an exact amount. Once reaching the desired quantity, the float system closes the water valve. However, if defective, you will start to hear the sound of running water. Our toilet plumbers are able to help you replace the float system in your toilet. We offer toilet plumbing repair and installation services in locations such as Darien, Clarendon Hills, Lisle, Downers Grove, Naperville, Wheaton, and Oak Brook, Illinois.
Loose & Tight Toilet Seat Screws May Cause Damage
Toilet seat screws hold the lid and toilet seat firmly over the bowl. If you notice your toilet seat shifting loosely, or sliding to one side when you sit down, the seat screws simply need tightening. However, if left loose or if screwed too tight, toilet seat screws crack and require a seat screw replacement.
A Clogged Toilet Drain Pipe From Foreign Objects
The toilet drain pipe—located on the toilet floor—connects to the sewer. Although a toilet drain pipe typically won’t break, it can clog due to excessive toilet paper, and non-flushable items such as paper towels, feminine hygiene products, or baby wipes. If this occurs, use a plunger to release those blocking components. However, if the pipe does not open after plunging, we recommend scheduling a toilet plumbing appointment with Stephens Plumbing. Call us by phone at (630) 968-0783 to receive assistance.
The Porcelain Bowl May Crack Overtime
As the most durable part of your toilet, the porcelain bowl typically requires little-to-no maintenance and lasts for quite a long time. But, a porcelain bowl can crack. If you notice a crack in your porcelain bowl, this means its time to schedule a toilet installation and replacement appointment with our professional plumbers.
Cracks usually occur due to extreme temperature changes. Avoid pouring hot water into the bowl, for this causes the porcelain to expand and fracture. Need assistance with a plumbing project?

Schedule an appointment with our team to receive assistance with an installation or repair project.
