Plumber repairing a toilet
Same-day Service Available

Looking for a plumber to fix your toilet?

You’d be surprised just how many litres of water can be wasted from a leaking toilet. If you have leaking toilet, it is important to get toilet repairs done as soon as possible.

Blocked toilets can also be a huge inconvenience, and can often lead to sewage spilling into your home. This can cause serious health implications, so if you have a blocked toilet, it is important to get professional help to clear the blockage as soon as possible.

Many people try to fix toilet problems themselves, but this is often not the best course of action. Toilet repairs can be complicated, and if not done correctly, can often make the problem worse. It is always best to call in a professional plumber to assess and fix the problem.

Warning signs that you have a problem with your toilet

Not sure if you actually have a problem with your toilet that needs repairs? Keep an eye (or ear) out for these telltale warning signs.

Phantom Flush  – No need to call the Ghostbusters about this one, it isn’t a ghost; there are times when your toilet might be refilling the bowl by itself even though no one has flushed it.

Puddles of water – most toilets have around 5 seals, each of which has the potential to leak. Check the base of your toilet for any puddles of water. These need to be fixed promptly to stop your floor from rotting.

Weak flush – is the amount of water coming from your toilet when you flush it not what it used to be? A weak flush can be a sign that something is wrong with the flushing mechanism or internal components of the toilet.

Cistern not filling up – a toilet cistern not filling up can be caused by various issues such as blockages in the supply line, faulty flapper, or problems with the overflow tube or trip assembly.

Most popular toilet repairs we complete

Below is a list of the toilet repairs we find our plumbers completing most often:

Did you know?

Toilets, whilst they look simple, actually contain quite a few vital components that allow them to function effectively including:

  • Shut-off valve
  • Float

  • Flushing control

  • Overflow

  • Flapper seal

  • Gasket seal

  • Wax seal

  • Floor flange

Frequently Asked Questions About Toilet Repairs

If your toilet won’t stop running, the first thing you should do is check to see if the water level in the tank is set too high. If it is, adjust the float until the water level is about an inch below the overflow pipe.

If this doesn’t fix the problem, there may be a leak in the flush valve. To check for this, remove the lid from the tank and flush the toilet. Then, with the lid off, see if water is running into the overflow pipe. If it is, the flush valve needs to be replaced.

If your toilet is still having problems, it may need to be re-set. To do this, turn off the water to the toilet at the shut-off valve. Then, flush the toilet and hold down the handle to empty all the water out of the tank. Next, remove the bolts that hold the tank to the bowl and lift off the tank. Finally, put everything back together and turn on the water.
