What are Common Issues With a Broken Toilet?
Toilet keeps running
After a flush, your toilet should stop running water once the toilet bowl flushes through. If your toilet continues to run, this could be due to a damaged or faulty inlet or outlet valve, or the washers in the valves are worn. Depending on your cistern, it may be cheaper to replace the entire cistern rather than just replacing the valves.
Toilet keeps getting blocked
If your toilet is blocked, you may be able to remove the blockage yourself using a common plumber‘s plunger. If the blockage is further down the drain than just in the toilet, you will likely need a plumber and their specialised equipment to fix the blockage. The most common cause of blockages in toilets is because something other than waste or toilet paper has been flushed down it.
Toilet is smelly
“Plumbing traps” within the pipes ensure that smells don’t make their way back up the pipes. Water within the pipes creates a seal that prevents gases from passing back up into your bathroom. If your toilet trap isn’t working properly and doesn’t have water in it, this may be where the smells are originating.
Toilet is leaking at the base
There is a rubber seal that connects the outlet on the toilet to the drain. These can wear out with age and are often the cause of leaks around the base of the toilet or between the toilet and the back wall. Other rubber seals on older style toilets can also decay and leak over time.
Why is my toilet leaking?
Leaking toilets are the most common household water leak. Many toilet leaks go unnoticed as the water slowly trickles down the back of the toilet bowl.
We find and fix all kinds of toilet leaks everything from a leaking toilet or leaking bowl to a leaking cistern. Don’t pay for any more excess water. Put a stop to your toilet leak today.
Your toilet may leak from any of the following:
Outlet rubber – decayed, cracked or split.
Inlet valve – plastic hardens and decays and can cause the valve to crack or split.
Outlet valve – plastic hardens and decays and can cause the valve to crack or split.
Flush pipe – seals decay and will crack or split leading to a leak from the cistern.
Key seal – waste leaks through the floor or wall seal due to the perishing rubber.
Cistern screw holes – a stuck inlet valve overfilling the cistern and overflowing out through unsealed screw holes.
Shut off valve – Just like your spindle taps over time the mechanism perishes and begins to leak the best option is to replace the valve.
Leaking water feed or flexi hose – Over time the rubbers perish and require replacing, as always the best option is to replace the entire hose.
