Toilet Repair Services in Sydney

While a toilet is only used for the most basic functions, it’s a complex fixture made up of many interjoining mechanisms.

For a toilet to work as it’s intended, each section and fitting must be in good condition and well-maintained.

When a toilet starts leaking, what might first appear as a small drip can quickly escalate into flooding  or more serious property damage if not addressed quickly.

Common leaking toilet issues

A leaking toilet can have many causes including:

Leaking cistern

You’ll know if there’s a leak in the cistern as the water will drain continuously after flushing.  Another sign of a leaking cistern is a wet floor at the back of the toilet.

A leaking cistern may be caused by the toilet handle getting caught in another mechanism or a build-up of sediment or rust.

Once a cistern starts to leak, it won’t improve without intervention. A toilet plumber will need to investigate and diagnose the problem.

Leak when flushing

A toilet leak when flushing might start as a minor problem, but it can quickly escalate if not addressed. A leak when flushing can have many causes including:

  • Loose fittings between mechanisms
  • Cracked porcelain  
  • Incorrectly placed flapper
  • Rust in the cistern
  • Loose supply connection
  • Faulty seals

It might be simple to fix a leak when flushing, but it’s important to know what you’re looking for. With so many interconnecting parts, what might appear as a simple screw or nut and bolt fix can quickly turn into a full toilet replacement.

Water leaking from under the toilet

A leak around the toilet base is usually a sign that the seal under the toilet – otherwise known as the wax ring – has failed. The toilet might also wobble or feel unstable when you sit on it.

Whatever the cause of the toilet leak, you must address the issue as soon as you notice it rather than waiting for it to get worse. Not only does a leaking toilet lead to excessive water consumption, but it can also lead to flooding that can damage the bathroom and, in extreme cases, the rooms underneath.

There are a few signs that can indicate that a toilet needs to be repaired. One is water constantly running into the bowl, even when the toilet is not in use. Another sign is if the toilet is not flushing properly, or if it is taking a long time to flush. If you notice any of these signs, it is likely that the toilet needs to be repaired.

If you have a water leak in your toilet, you will likely see water surrounding the base of the toilet. You may also notice that the water level in the toilet tank is higher than normal, or that the water is constantly running into the bowl. If you suspect that you have a leaky toilet, it is best to call a plumbing professional to investigate and repair the problem.

Some signs that your toilet may need to be replaced include a water leak, a constantly running toilet, and a toilet that is not flushing properly. If you notice any of these signs, it is best to call a plumbing professional to investigate and replace the toilet if necessary.

Most plumbing professionals recommend having your toilet professionally cleaned every 6 months to 1 year. This will help keep the toilet in good working order and help prevent any potential problems from occurring.

Another way to clean your toilet is to use a bleach and water mixture. This should be done once a month to help keep the toilet clean and free of bacteria. Be sure to read the directions on the bleach bottle carefully, as too much bleach can be harmful.

Some tips for preventing toilet problems include regularly cleaning the toilet with a vinegar and baking soda mixture or a bleach and water mixture, using a plunger to clear clogs, and not putting anything in the toilet other than toilet paper. You can also help prevent clogs by avoiding flushing large items down the toilet.
