Some of the most common toilet problems are a loose flush handle, constantly-running toilet, leaks, problems with odours, and the dreaded blocked toilet. You can fix these issues yourself in some cases, but booking a tradesman on Airtasker to fix it for you would be a better solution, especially if the cause of the problem turns out to be more complex.
Sure signs are if your toilet runs constantly, the toilet won’t flush or gives a weak flush, and if the toilet doesn’t refill as quickly as before after flushing. Toilet fill valve repair is easy to do, as it often involves cleaning or replacing the fill valve seal. Toilet fill valves are cheap and found in most hardware stores, so the entire unit is often replaced.
Much like a dripping faucet, a constantly-running toilet can be both wasteful and annoying. Plumbers call this a “phantom flush” and it’s a slow, steady leak of water from the cistern into the bowl. This can usually be fixed by cleaning the flapper to ensure it sits perfectly and seals the flush valve. Should this not fix the problem, the flapper may be worn and replacing it can be the solution.
What do toilet repair services include?
Toilet repair services include everything necessary to ensure your toilet flushes as normal and doesn’t leak. Repairs may include checking for toilet cracks, looking for defective components in the flushing system, then applying the right fixes. Your hired toilet plumber can also test the mechanism to ensure the repairs worked. Some toilet plumbers may also perform specific services such as flush master toilet repairs upon request.
Your hired tradesman starts by inspecting the toilet to find the cause of the problem. They can inspect the cistern or tank and all the components within, such as the flapper, refill tube, float ball, and other parts of the flushing mechanism. They can also check the cistern for cracks or leaks, and check the base, flexible hose, and flush valve gasket for damage.
Repairing the toilet
Once your chosen plumber has identified the problem, they’ll then apply the appropriate fixes. Toilet flush repairs begin by shutting off the water supply and draining the toilet cistern and bowl if necessary, then repair or replace broken wax rings, isolation valves, supply lines, and other components. Fixes can also include unclogging each flush hole of any debris, and removing blockages on the siphon jet if the toilet has them.
Plumbers on Airtasker can also do toilet cistern crack repairs. Your plumber can drain the cistern then seal the crack with epoxy or sealant. They can ensure that the cistern doesn’t refill until the sealant has dried. They may do toilet fill valve repairs or replacements if necessary.
Your hired plumber can inspect each seal of the toilet, then tighten or replace it to stop any leaks. If the leaky seal is the one between the tank and the bowl, your hired plumber can drain and remove the cistern or tank then install a new seal. Your plumber also checks the other seals, such as those on the mounting bolts and the ballcock base, and tighten or replace them as needed. As for leaks on the base of the toilet, your plumber can remove the toilet and likewise replace that seal.
Testing the system
After completing the repairs, your tradesman can restore the water supply and test the flush. They can check for leaks, weak flushes, unusual sounds, or other issues. Should your plumber find any issues again, they can do the appropriate fixes. Your tradesman repeats this process until the toilet flushes as normal. Now that the toilet is repaired, how about getting a handyman to fit a new toilet seat fitting?
A toilet fill valve must be changed every five years, so you can book a plumber to inspect this vital component and see if it’s due for a replacement. Your hired plumber can also inspect the toilet’s seals, soil pipes, and other components for wear, and tell you if these will result in future leaks. They can do maintenance on them and tighten or replace the seals.
