Common Types of Toilet Repairs
Here are just a few common bathroom plumbing issues we see and fix the most:
Toilet repair for leaking or running water
Does your toilet make a constant sound of running water? There should not be any sound of water running down the toilet bowl after the period of flushing.
If this is an issue you are experiencing, one of our plumbing experts will be able to tell you straight away that you have a problem with leakage.
The common cause of this problem is often when the water pressure is too high. This will be checked by your plumber before any attempt at a repair is made.
Toilet plumbing and blockages
When a blocked toilet overflows bathrooms often become flooded with dirty water trickling from the toilet.
Blockages are mostly caused by materials being flushed down the toilet, like wipes. But an inadequate flushing system can also be the main root of the problem.
Minor blockages can often be treated with a plunger, however, some more serious blockages will need a plumber to investigate the source of the problem, which might be in the pipework or drainage system.
Toilet repair techniques for poor flushing
Is your flush not working correctly? There might be a slight opportunity for you to fix this at home without the intervention of professional help.
You will need to lift the lid of the cistern and examine the tank for any problems.
Issues to look out for include:
- When you flush is a lever inside the tank pulling too? Or is it broken? The rod that pulls the lever could be broken or is unhooked.
- Identify the plastic diaphragm (fill valve/Ballcock valve) – has it split? Does it lift the water when you flush?
- Is the float ball obstructed or waterlogged?
For anything you are unsure of, it’s always best to contact a plumber or repair technician who will be able to spot and fix these toilet-related problems easily and quickly for you – saving you time, hassle and stress.
