Leaking Toilet Repairs

Lucid Plumbers are here to help you fix your leaking toilet. We have experts on hand who will come and assess your leak and make any repairs needed. We have offices throughout Australia.

A leaking toilet is a common household problem. Toilets have a lifespan of 30 or more years. Some problems can develop over time and cause a toilet to leak.

What Should I Do?

It is a good idea to switch off the water supply to your toilet. Different faulty valves and seals can cause water to leak from a toilet. It may be visible to you, straight away, or you might need to check a few different areas.

Where Do Toilets Leak?

Your toilet may be leaking from the top (Cistern tank), where it connects to the toilet bowl, or from the seal at the back, behind the toilet. You will need to inspect the different parts to see where the leak is coming from.

  • Behind the toilet is the downpipe with a ring and a wax seal
  • The seal can last 30 years but it can dry out, crumble and have tiny cracks
  • The toilet tank and bowl are connected with gaskets, nuts, and bolts
  • If they are loose, water can leak out
  • A faulty flush mechanism can cause the tank to overflow
  • Cracks in the toilet or tank
  • Rusted pipes or old washers in the toilet tap

Other Parts that Cause Water to Leak

There is a flapper between the tank and the bowl. If water is continuously running into the bowl then this needs to be replaced. The seal at the base of your toilet may also be damaged. This can cause water to leak.

Do You Hear Water Running?

If there is water leaking onto your floor – you can easily understand that there is a leak in the toilet. Water can still be leaking into the bowl, though, and adding to your water bill. You should not hear water running once the cistern is full.

A toilet is designed with a fill valve that switches off once the water had reached the maximum height in the tank. When it is not working, water will continuously fill the tank and go down the overflow pipe. This runs into the toilet bowl.

Do Not Tamper with the Float or Arm

These are designed to balance and work with your toilet tank. Call a professional to assess the problem and do not try to adjust these yourself.

  • You can damage the mechanism
  • There may be a washer or valve that needs replacing
  • It could be the toilet flapper

From booking online to the completion of the job was seamless. Ben arrived super quick and was the utmost professional and really new his stuff. He took the time to explain what the problem was and what he was going to do.

Very happy customer! I can't thank Ben, Fouad & Bradley enough for fixing an electrical fault (and dodgy wiring from times gone by) to make my home safer (as well as installing some additional points, tidying up some others and installing new interconnected smoke alarms).

Great experience, they actually turned up when they said they would. The guy took the time to look for leaks other than the obvious one, and found them. Saving us a return visit. Pricing is fair. Would definitely recommend.
