Toilet repair isn’t a job for the faint hearted though; whether it’s an issue with the flush or a problem with a leaking tank, lots of things can go wrong and it’s important to be able to pinpoint the problem if you need to call a plumber.

A leaking or otherwise broken toilet can be a real nuisance – and if left in a state of disrepair, could cause extensive water damage to your property.

Here are just some of the plumbing issues you might experience with a toilet.

1. TOILET REPAIR FOR NOT FLUSHING

Probably the most frustrating is a toilet not flushing. This can be caused by the flush valve or syphon not opening. Or it could be that the cistern has not filled and there is not any water to flush. So the best thing to do is lift the lid and have a look to see what is happening.

2. TOILET REPAIR FOR TANK NOT FILLING UP AND PREVENTING A FLUSH

Another common toilet problem is the cistern or tank not filling up so preventing a flush. In all toilets there is a ball valve and this can be side entry or bottom entry. If it is stuck closed then it will not let any water into the toilet. This can be caused by scale and wear and tear and can be resolved by a bit of cleaning but you may want to consider replacing you valve.

3.TOILET REPAIR FOR LEAKING PIPES

Constant dripping sound that can keep you awake at night. This is where the ball valve is letting by and dripping into the tank. This again can be caused by wear and tear and scale and means cleaning out and possibly disassembling the valve. Whatever you do make sure you turn off the water first.

This is caused by the siphon or flush valve not closing properly. If you have a lever operated toilet then it could be stuck up, if it is push button or something similar then the valve is not seating properly. This allows water to flow into the bowl and can be caused by debris or the seal being damaged. Again this is easily rectified by fitting a new flush valve and we also sell. Complete Repair packs which mean you can fully uprate all your components of the toilet.

There should not be a constant sound of running water coming from your toilet, or water running down the toilet bowl a long time after flushing. 

If there is, a toilet plumbing expert will tell you that you have a problem with leakage.

4. TOILET REPIAR FOR FLAPPY LEVER OR SOFT BUTTON

If you have a push button then it can go all limp and just not work. If you have a lever and it has gone all flappy then you have got a broken mechanism. This will mean that your toilet will just not flush and you will need to have a look to see what has broken. This is all connected to the flush valve and we offer cable operated valves that are just far superior and more reliable than old style mechanisms.

5. TOILET PLUMBING AND BLOCKING

One of the most undesirable toilet repair issues, a blocked toilet can cause an overflow and in the worst case scenario, it could flood your bathroom with unclean water from the toilet.

The causes of such blockages can be either due to the materials being flushed down the toilet, or because of an inadequate flushing mechanism.
