Have you ever had a problem with your toilet, called a plumber, only to find out that the problem really wasn't really all that major to begin with. Granted, after finding this out you usually have to pay $100 or more. Diagnosing toilet problems yourself can not only save you some money that you can use in a variety of other ways, by either telling the plumber what the problem is or by being able to fix the problem yourself.
Now that you have a rough idea of where the problem lies, you can begin to either work on the problem or let the plumber know what's going on. With the problem diagnosed, you can easily figure out what you need to do to fix it. Luckily, most of the problems you will be able to fix yourself, or at least you can if you have the right instructions and a bit of self confidence.
