    The Following Clues May Suggest That Your Toilet Needs

    Proximity EditedLow

    The ‘Phantom Flush’

    Your toilet periodically refills spontaneously, as though someone flushed it. No, it’s not a ghost. This is caused by a slow leak from the tank into the bowl.

    The ‘Weak Flush’

    A bowl that empties sluggishly (also know as the ‘weak flush’), can be the result of a problem with the flushing mechanism, a restricted flow between the tank and bowl, a blockage in the waste line, or poor venting.

    The ‘Leaky Seal’

    A standard toilet has at least five seals. Each of these seals have the potential to leak. If the seal underneath the base of your toilet fails, the leaking water will eventually rot the bathroom floor.

    Understanding The parts of a toilet

    It helps to identify where the issue is if you understand the different parts of the toilet. Here is a basic diagram. It might help you identify the leak and explain to your plumber what the problem is with your toilet.

    • 1

      Shut-off valve: Allows you to turn the water to the cistern off.

    • 2

      Float: Controls the amount of water that gets filled in the cistern.

    • 3

      Flushing Control: A button that allows you to release the flush.

    • 4

      Overflow: If the float malfunctions, the overflow directs excess water from the cistern into the toilet bowl to avoid flooding the floor. E

    • 5

      Flapper Seal: The seal forms a watertight barrier between the flushing mechanism and the cistern.

    • 6

      Gasket Seal: This seal provides a watertight join between the cistern and the toilet bowl.

    • 7

      Wax Seal: form a watertight seal that forces water and waste from the toilet directly into the drain.

    • 8

      Floor Flange: The toilet flange, also known as a closet flange, is the part of the toilet that secures the unit to the floor and connects to the drain pipe.

    Why Choose Us For Your Toilet Repairs?

    When toilet malfunctions or breaks, it can be the most annoying thing to happen. A blocked toilet produces an unpleasant odour, and of course, it cannot be used since it’s not functioning properly.

    When a toilet breaks, it can mean a lot of things depending on the location of the breakage. If the flush is broken, it means that your toilet cannot flush water and waste inside the bowl. If the sewer is broken, your toilet will smell bad and depending on the broken site, the solution will be different. And to fix a toilet & sewerage, you’ll need a licensed plumber.
