Replace That Plastic Toilet Lever Easily

“A broken plastic toilet handle is easy to replace,” according to Mr. Rooter, Bob Beall, the most referred plumber in the Pittsburgh Pennsylvania and Youngstown Ohio areas.

Offering a free second opinion to residential and commercial customers has proved to be an exciting way for Beall to offer his expertise 24/7; exactly how he operates his plumbing services. Beall, showcased on KDKA in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, mentions the fact that he is the one who answers his phone, even in the dead of the night.

“Tank handles are typically chrome, white, brushed nickel, or polished brass,” according to Beall. He notes that the consumer should never get a polished brass lever unless the finish is guaranteed for life.
