Clogged Toilet? Our Nashville Plumbers Can Help!
Why is my toilet not flushing? The most common answer is: You have a toilet clog. There are plenty of ways that may have happened, and they are not all caused by human waste. These are the ones your plunger just will not be able to fix and that require a call to the professionals. Common clogged toilet culprits include:
- Dirty diapers
- Baby wipes
- “Flushable” wipes
- Toys or that remote you have been looking for
- Feminine products
- Paper towels
- Pet waste (including “flushable kitty litter)
- Low pressure
Fact: Low-flow models clog more often – check the date stamp on the back. If it is from the mid-1990s, it may be a first-generation low-flow model that lacks the proper water pressure to flush waste through your pipes. Reduce your TP use and avoid ‘unflushable” items. If that does not work – it is time for an upgrade.
Tips on how to unclog a blocked toilet include more than merely using a plunger. You can check them out and try the DIY fixes but know when to call a toilet plumber in Nashville to avoid bigger problems or more extensive damage. That time comes when plunging, brushing, snaking, melting, or forcing a clog on your own has not done the trick. If you have hard water, calcification can cause clogs and requires a professional pipe flushing as well as a water softener installation to remedy the issue.

Toilet Installation in Nashville – Toilet Replacement by Experts
Whether you need a toilet replacement due to wear and tear or damage or you are looking to update and upgrade your bathroom, Hoffmann Brothers can handle the toilet installation throughout Nashville. Two things to consider when thinking about replacing a toilet are these advantages: efficiency and cost savings. New toilets use 1.6 gallons of water per flush vs. the older models’ (those installed before 1994) 3.5 gallons per flush. So while your toilet could last 50 years if properly maintained, it may be worth the investment.
Other benefits of a new toilet include increased property value, improved water pressure and flow, and plumbing issue prevention (like overflow/backflow).

Frequently Asked Questions About Toilet Installation and Repair
Some fixes to common toilet problems are:
- Make sure there is not too much slack in the lift chain and adjust as needed.
- Make sure the flapper is properly installed and does not need a toilet flapper replacement.
- Check the fill tube in your tank for shifting or damage. If damaged, replace it.
- Cracked toilet bowls mean you should call a plumber.
- Use a plumbing snake to clean and clear a plumbing vent blockage.
- Whistling tank: Replace toilet fill valve.
- Unsteady tank: Needs toilet flange repair. Tighten flanges and/or insert shims between floor and base.
- Ghost flushing means you have an internal leak – call a plumber!
To fix a running toilet, sometimes the valve and gauge may just need to be cleaned. If that does not work, it needs to be replaced. Open the tank, press on the valve, then listen. If the water stops filling, you know you need a new valve.
Around 50 years if installed properly, well maintained, and gently used. Look for the date stamp on the back of your toilet to see how old yours is. Although, parts of the toilet may need to be repaired or replaced more often.
