Our Greenville Toilet Repair Services
Common toilet issues can range from the mundane, like constant running and minor clogs, to the severe, like pooling water and overflowing. The important thing is that no matter why your toilet is malfunctioning, you address it sooner rather than later. If you can’t take care of the problem yourself, contact our Greenville toilet repair pros. We will do everything in our power to not only fix your current issue but ensure more complications don’t occur in the future.
Our Greenville toilet repair team at Waldrop can take care of:
- Persistent clogs: If your toilet keeps clogging, even after you’ve used a plunger, Waldrop should be able to take care of it. Our skilled plumbing technicians offer cutting-edge snaking that can penetrate clogs deep in your line. We will also check the trap to see if there is anything stuck back there, and we can even take a look at your system’s roof vent if necessary. If the problem lies deeper in your sewer line, we will bring out the advanced methods needed to make necessary repairs. Just remember, you can avoid clogs by not flushing things like cotton balls, tampons, pads, and other paper products down the toilet. Even so-called “flushable wipes” are extremely dangerous. Bottom line: when it comes to flushing, stick to regular toilet paper.
- Shower problems: If you always get a blast of cold water in the shower when someone flushes the toilet elsewhere in your house, it could be a problem with the supply valve. This issue is particularly common in older homes, but that doesn’t mean you have to put up with it. If you are sick of flushing ruining your hot shower, Waldrop Plumbing – Heating – Air will do everything we can to make grade-A improvements to your toilet.
- Overflowing: An overflowing toilet can be a nightmare—no homeowner wants to deal with this. Our plumbers will get to the source of the issue, whether it’s because of a blocked drain, an obstructed vent pipe, or an issue with the float. Remember, if your toilet does start overflowing, don’t just sit around waiting for it to stop. Find the water supply line at the bottom of the bowl and turn its valve counterclockwise to prevent more spillage. You should also put towels down around the toilet base, so the water does not seep into your flooring.
- Leaks & pooling water: If water is pooling around your toilet bowl, chances are you are dealing with some kind of a leak. Our plumbing pros will check the tightness of your toilet tank bolts, fill valve/ballcock, mounting nut, and supply tube coupling nut. If any of these components are loose, we will tighten them and replace the washers. You could also be dealing with a worn-out wax ring that no longer seals around the base of your toilet. We may replace either the wax ring or the base itself, depending on the severity of the issue. Beware, however, the more cracked your unit is, the greater the chance that we will have to replace the whole thing.
- A stuck toilet handle: If your toilet handle refuses to budge, there’s a good chance it’s because the mounting nut inside the tank has built up lime and sediment over time. We can clean this part for you and inspect the rest of your toilet tank to see if we need to make any necessary mechanical replacements.
The life span of the average toilet is approximately 15 years. However, your toilet will not last that long if you fail to call for necessary repairs and maintenance. Watch out for common signs that something is wrong, such as clogging, running, and leaking, and do not hesitate to contact Waldrop Plumbing – Heating – Air for a thorough inspection of your toilet. We promise, no matter what the problem is, we’ll get to the bottom of it!

Toilet Repair FAQs
CAN I USE DRAIN CLEANER TO UNCLOG A TOILET?
Consumer drain cleaners tend to be quite corrosive and can generate heat as they work. As a result, these chemicals can strip the finish from your toilet, damage the porcelain, or harm your drain pipes. If plunging, soaking overnight, or hot water is not enough to clear the clog, it is best to call a plumber for professional drain cleaning services. Our experts at Waldrop Plumbing – Heating – Air have all the equipment to remove clogs safely, and we will respond quickly anywhere in Greer or the surrounding communities.
WHY IS MY TOILET LEAKING AT THE BASE?
Make sure the closet bolts that secure the toilet to the flange are not loose. If they are, carefully snug them down but avoid supplying enough force to crack the porcelain. If the leak remains, the wax ring may have failed and will need to be replaced by a professional.
WHY IS MY TOILET CONSTANTLY RUNNING?
If the flapper valve at the bottom of the tank is leaking, water will constantly flow into the bowl, forcing the fill valve to open and refill the tank. If this is happening in your South Carolina home, call our team at Waldrop Plumbing – Heating – Air for cost-effective, reliable toilet repair services.
SHOULD I UPGRADE TO A LOW-FLOW TOILET?
With flushes that are 1.6 gallons or less, compared to the 2 to 5 gallons of older toilets, you can save significant amounts of water by upgrading. Not only will this help to conserve resources, but it can also reduce your water bills considerably. Plus, today’s water-conserving toilets offer much better performance than earlier versions.
HOW CAN I PREVENT TOILET CLOGS?
Avoid flushing anything but waste and toilet paper. Even occasional or accidental flushing of items like paper towels, baby wipes, “flushable” moist wipes, hygiene products, or foreign objects like toys and keys can cause serious clogs.
