HomeLeaky Toilets

Are you aware that a visibly leaking toilet can waste more than 60,000 litres of water a year? It’s because toilets can leak from multiple locations from the cistern to the base, causing sewer overflows.

At The Plumber Next Door, we take water damage seriously. Beyond the environmental cost of water wastage, a leaking toilet that’s not fixed immediately can result in costly damage to your bathroom and surrounding property space.

What Are the Common Signs & Causes of a Toilet Leak?

  1. A constantly refilling toilet cistern
    This calls for replacement of the water inlet valve, which is a common repair for experienced plumbers.
  2. Water puddles on the floor
    The usual suspects causing water on the floor would be worn-out seals, either those connecting the cistern to the toilet bowl or the seal connecting the toilet bowl to the sewer.
  3. Water running into the toilet bowl
    This can be due to a deteriorated rubber washer that seals the cistern or it could indicate problems in the internal components of the toilet cistern. If the latter, replacing the entire toilet could be a more cost-effective solution.

Whatever the cause of your toilet leak, the first thing to do is to cut off the water supply at the cistern shutoff valve to prevent further water waste. Once you’ve done that, call The Plumber Next Door at 0422 087 065 and we’ll come out to assess the situation and recommend the best solution for you.
