Don’t Try To Fix a Toilet Yourself!

We know it’s a major emergency, but whatever you do, don’t try to fix your toilet yourself. Repairing a broken toilet is no job for an amateur, and you could finish up making things ten times worse if you don’t know what you are doing. In many instances you don’t even know what the problem is. It could be that your sewer pipe is blocked. If it is that, what is blocking it and why? At Ben Franklin of Wichita, Kansas, we have the answer to that because we can send a CCTV camera down there to have look. Not only that, we can even make a DVD of it to show you so that you can see for yourself.

When we know what is causing the problem, then we will know how to deal with it. Very often a blocked sewer is caused by tree roots growing inside it. What happens is that if you – or your neighbor – have trees growing in your yard those roots are always on the lookout for water. Your sewer is a great source of water. All the while it is in perfect condition there is no problem. But the slightest crack will begin to leak water and those tree roots will come over to take a look. A crack can be caused by a small amount of earth movement.

When the tree roots get inside your pipe they begin to grow and eventually they block the sewer pipe.

However, as a Wichita plumber for toilet repair, we have the answer to that too. We send down cutting tools and cut the roots away. Then we use a herbicide to prevent the roots growing again.

Voila! Your toilet is working perfectly again.
