Curious about what is happening with the toilet plumbing when the water
in the bowl seems to disappear? It's a good bet that you will not
have to call a
plumbing company in Phoenix or the surrounding areas to know that there is a leak somewhere.
If the water is disappearing in between uses, something is not right. Most
often there is a crack in the bowl which has caused the water to drain.
In many cases, the leak is above the drain which will keep the water running
through the pipes instead of the floor. If you have water all over your
floor, or you see the floor covering separating itself showing water damage
to the subfloor, you have additional problems and will want to get them
corrected as soon as possible. If this is the case, call your Phoenix
plumber right away and have them inspect the problem. In most cases the
toilet bowl will need to be replaced. Some at home fix it people can handle
the job of removing the old and fitting the new toilet in. When in doubt,
calling a plumbing professional to handle the job will get the job done correctly the first time through.
Some people are concerned with the costs of plumbers, but if you shop around
and find the best Phoenix plumbing service available and consider the
money you are saving by having a professional do the job.

If you are going to do the job yourself, there are specific tools needed
to get you through the job of replacing a toilet. You will want to have
the new toilet bowl and tank, bowl gasket, trim caps which may come with
your new toilet, bathtub caulk/sealant, flat-end riser tube, a trap wrench/water
pump pliers, mini-hacksaw, rust proof washers, toilet seat, hold-down
bolts, washers and nuts, plumber's putty, supply valve, adjustable
open-end wrenches, a large screw driver, and a sponge.
Plan for the project to last the minimum of a half day when you are doing
it yourself. Measure the area between wall and back of toilet so you buy
a replacement which fits. Read through the manufacturer's instructions
before you begin taking anything apart. Don't forget to shut off the
water supply before you begin.
The task may be too expensive, time consuming or a project you may find
to be out of your ability. Finding a plumber in your area which will provide
a great service with competitive prices could take some time if you are
a new homeowner or have just never needed to use their services. Those
