Leak At Toilet Base Plumber – Broadview North, East York

Preferred Plumbing Solutions Inc

A leaking toilet can be a major inconvenience and cause a great deal of water damage if not taken care of quickly. If you’re dealing with a leak at the base of your toilet in Broadview North, East York, Preferred Plumbing Solutions Inc is here to help. We have years of experience providing quality plumbing services to homeowners across the GTA.

Common Causes of a Toilet Leaking

The most common causes of a toilet leaking from its base are damaged or compressed wax ring seals, loose or corroded bolts, cracks in the bowl or tank, and problems with the water supply line or shut-off valve. The wax ring seals form a seal between the base of the toilet and the floor that prevents water from escaping. If this seal becomes worn out or compressed over time, it can no longer keep water from seeping out around the base.

Similarly, if the bolts that hold your toilet in place become loose or corroded due to age and wear and tear, they are no longer able to provide enough support for the toilet which can cause it to become unstable and lead to leaks. In addition, cracks in either the bowl or tank of your toilet can also result in water leaking out from beneath it. Finally, a faulty water supply line or shut-off valve could also cause your toilet to leak by creating too much pressure on certain parts of your plumbing system.

At Preferred Plumbing Solutions Inc we understand how frustrating even minor plumbing issues can be and strive to provide our customers with quick and efficient service that gets their homes back into perfect working order as soon as possible.

Folks, if you're finding yourself in a Do-It-Yourself (DIY) plumbing situation and make a mistake, don't despair. Don't stress yourself out like I had done =0)) And actually it's not even funny! I thought to myself: "That's it! The faucet and sink would be out of service for days now!" I was driving myself bananas! Call your plumber or a reputable plumbing shop like Preferred Plumbing. At least, to diagnose the issue properly. Nowadays, things can be rectified a lot easier and quicker than you'd think... I've just had my P-trap pipes repaired under the bathroom sink (in a condo) — with Preferred Plumbing. What an admirable team there: from the Main office intake (Maggie) all the way to the owner Raphie himself! ...with Daniel T. being the initial consultant, Dominic Z. the star Tech who fixed it all for me and Josh the Assistant with a friendly beard on the team. The thing which was giving me grief was the P-trap pipe portion that had been 'bloody' soldered to the the main pipe from the building (coming from behind the wall)! Obviously, the kind of thing you don't usually have the tools for as an average Joe. How I got to that point? Don't ask, ok? Just don't ask. I'd already broken an edge of that P-trap portion that's attached to the main pipe from the building (by trying to tighten it up a notch, seeing that it was still leaking). In short, I needed an emergency repair to replace the entire P-trap pipe as a result. My mind was racing with all sorts of scenarios: what if the repair is too complex and unaffordable, what if it takes days to fix — because of some permit, property management involvement or the tool required? But guess what... I called up the shop and found it wasn't as scary as the situation first presented itself. The entire team Preferred Plumbing Solutions worked like special ops: they had all the tools, were ready to rock, on time and put all the options on the table upfront. No surprises. No delays. Needless to say, I'm so relieved it's done. Phew! Good job, team! Appreciate your coming to help me out on the same day.

To start they were to be my house on a Wednesday Feb 1 2023 at 9:00am and 5 minutes to 9:00 the person from Preferred calls me on my cell to say they are running a few minutes late and apologized.The person said he would be happy to bring me a coffee. Who does that - a thoughtful gesture.They arrived at 9:05 am and promptly assessed what needed to be done to fix a broken kitchen faucet.They gave me 3 options at 3 price points and I choose one. The work was done quickly, promptly and on budget - 3 out of 3. The plumbing technicians were courteous, polite and efficient - again, 3 out of 3. Can't say enough positive things about the people and this company. Also my front door lock was loose and one of the technicians had a screwdriver and decided on his own volition to tighten the screws and now the door lock works much better. They will be the first plumbing company I call when and if I have any other plumbing issues in my house. This is a legit review. Andrew

Raphie was incredibly professional and kind. I've never had a better experience with a service company of any kind. I would absolutely call Preferred Plumbing Solutions again if I encounter future problems and I highly recommend them. The attention to detail, thoroughness and above and beyond service was refreshing. Raphie even cleaned up after and cleared all the garbage for me, which no one has ever done. The details matter and say a lot about the way any business genuinely cares for it's customers. Thanks Raphie!

The service amazing. Punctual. Professional. Fixed the problem. At this sensitive time of covid 19. I was asked if I was comfortable with their covid 19 precautions which I was because I saw how careful they were. Gloves masks protective footwear coverings as well as sensitized and wipes. They left my home sanitized clean and soled my problem. Thank you preferred plumbing

Preferred plumbing went above and beyond to explain their services and help with our master bathroom. Even after the service is done, they offered to call my insurance to support my case for draining issues needing to be fixed. I’m so impressed with their customer service, even as a follow up once the service was paid and completed!

As always, I could rely on Preferred Plumbing to arrive exactly when they said they would. The service guy was so pleasant and accommodating. He explained everything to me clearly and patiently before beginning the repairs, and made sure I was ok with what needed to be done. I’m always amazed at how clean my bathroom is after these service guys leave. Everything is done with such courtesy and respect for the home owner. It was a positive experience from beginning to end. And of course the work is always done to perfection with such attention to detail.
