Signs Your Toilet Needs a Repair

You may require a plumbing service if you’re experiencing some of these common issues:

Odd noises

Weak flush and toilet clogs

Low water level

Toilet wobbles

Constant toilet trouble

Common Causes of Toilet Problems

While some toilet problems are unique, most issues stem from one of these common causes:

Old flapper can't keep a seal

Something is stuck in the toilet or drain

Old washer bolts are causing water to leak

Damage to the tank

Cracked toilet bowl

The refill tube is positioned incorrectly

Faulty vent

A clog down the sewer line

The toilet isn't tightened to the ground properly

The fill valve may be old or faulty or need to be cleaned

Debris in the hardware


Loose bolts

Loose water supply connection

Too much slack in the chain

Incorrectly adjusted water level

The supply valve is loose or you need a supply valve replacement

How Much Should a Toilet Repair Cost?

Like every plumbing service, the cost of a toilet repair depends on a number of variables.

Are you buying the part and doing the repair yourself?

Are you hiring an experienced and licensed plumber or are you hiring a handyman?

Is the repair being bundled in with other services while the plumber is there?

What is the cause of the issues, and what needs to be done?

Are the replacement parts standard, or will unusual parts be required? Are they readily available?

toilet repair cost

As you can see, there are many variables that must be factored into the cost of the repair. The way we work is we will send a plumber to your home to inspect and diagnose the issues and provide you with an upfront price upon seeing what is needed. This way, you can expect a bill that accurately represents what you agreed to with the plumber.

Ultimately, if you’re hiring a licensed and insured Ottawa plumber, you should expect to pay at least $150-$200, but depending on the situation, it can be much higher than that. With the costs of materials, gas, and everything else increasing so fast and dramatically, we can expect that prices may increase in Ottawa for all services.

Can I repair a toilet myself or should I hire John The Plumber?

Whether or not you should repair your toilet yourself or have an expert, like John The Plumber, depends on your competencies and budget.

We have a biased opinion, as we have seen many DIYers do more harm than good when it comes to plumbing, but that’s only because we get called to fix it afterward. We don’t hear about all of the success stories.

Ultimately, it’s up to you whether or not you feel comfortable with your own toilet repair.

If you choose to repair your toilet or do toilet replacements yourself, we encourage you to spend some time learning online and be extremely careful. All it takes is one mistake to cause thousands of dollars in water damage.

First time using John the plumber. Alex was on time and an absolute pleasure to deal with. We weren’t sure if we had a toilet or shower leak. Alex took his time and looked into both…it was the toilet!! Alex was thorough in looking into all and reinstalled the toilet. We will definitely use John the plumber again and will be requesting Alex!! Thank you for the great service, Alex.

I wasn’t expecting to have to fix my toilet right after moving into my new place. Luckily, John The Plumber was on hand to guide me through the process with their friendly, professional, efficient service. Thomas was amazing from the get-go. Not only was he quick, he was polite, and managed to deal with whatever challenges my bathroom posed head-on. I highly recommend using John the Plumber for your emergency and/or renovation needs!
