Leaking Toilets

Leaking toilets can often go unnoticed, especially if the leak is silent or out of view. However, the fact is, a leaking toilet can waste hundreds of litres of water a week and, if water is starting to leak at the bottom of the cistern, it’s the perfect environment for mould and other nasty bacteria to flourish. But if you spot a leak or hear a hiss, don’t panic. Our plumbers are never far away and can provide a fast fix and expert advice on repairing or replacing your leaking toilet.

"STS Plumbing are happy to do the dirty work to fix or replace your leaking toilet to save you time, money and stress"

Think you have a leaking toilet?

If you have trouble flushing the toilet, find that it won’t stop running or discover any cracks, leaks or flooding, it’s best to get it checked by an expert plumbing technician before it causes any serious damage to your property.

What causes a leaking toilet?

Leaking toilets are more common than you think and can usually be put down to:
  • A faulty inlet valve washer that causes water to overflow from the cistern into the bowl
  • Broken seals that cause water leakage on the floor or at the base of the cistern
  • A broken outlet valve or washers that cause leaking and prevent the toilet from flushing fully.

How do I fix it?

We’re happy to do all the dirty work, so you can get back to your regular routine. First, we’ll test the system to determine where the leak is coming from and replace any faulty washers, inlet or outlet valves. If your toilet needs replacing, we’ll help you select a dual-flush toilet that will give your bathroom a fresh new look and help you save on water costs.

When do I need STS Plumbing?

Save the DIY for another time; give us a call at the first sign of a leak or blockage.  Our plumbers have a wide range of replacement parts on hand, so we can fix any small problems on the spot.

Q: I only have one toilet in my house, will you have it fixed quickly?!
