WHY WE WERE CALLED

There is likely no fixture in the home as well-used and trustworthy as the toilet. Aside from regular cleaning every few days, your toilet is likely relatively low-maintenance. If something goes wrong, the bathroom bowl shouldn’t be ignored. A simple toilet leak causes water to pool or even severe damages that can cause $$$.

 

WHAT WE DID

Proximity Plumbing was called to report on site after reports of a leaking toilet, we attended the site and were able to seal the base of the toilet as a temporary solution. We highly recommend replacement of the toilet as it is cracked at the base and poses a hygiene risk. Whilst onsite we will carry out a camera audit of the toilet line to investigate what caused the initial blockage, whether that’s tree roots, defective pipework, or a build-up of debris such as foreign objects within the line.

 

RESULTS

Based on our recommendation, the following works are included to permanently fix the issue: 

  • Taking the toilet off
  • Using CCTV to inspect the integrity of the line
  • Reinstalling a new toilet suite into place
  • Disposal of the old toilet offsite

On completion, we will provide a report along with photos to update our client.
