New Flooring Causes Toilet Leak Disaster

We recently serviced a customer who had their main floor bathroom remodeled.  We installed a tub and sink faucet for them.  They had the floors replaced and the flooring company re-installed the toilet for the customer.  

Months went by and things were good.  But then in the basement bathroom below the main floor toilet, the ceiling began to look wet.  Then the paint down the walls began to droop, and mold spots showed up below the paint.  The customer called Jerry’s Plumbing Repair to see what was going on.  
Once the ceiling was removed, it was evident that the toilet above was leaking from the base and running into the ceiling.  This had been going on for months, and there was extensive mold and water damage.  

Jerry’s Plumbing Repair reset the toilet and eliminated the leak.  
As you consider remodeling your bathroom or replacing the floor, the question is, are you willing to risk an unseen and unsanitary leak?  Jerry’s Plumbing Repair has the experience to make sure that the toilet has been installed correctly.
