How To Repair A Leaking Toilet

Posted on 10/10/2013 · Posted in General

A leaking toilet is not just an inconvenience, but can also be a hazard in the home. No one wants soiled water leaking through their ceilings into the room downstairs, which is why it is best to deal with the problem as soon as it starts, before it gets any worse.

Repairing a toilet is no easy task. Before you do anything, you need to work out why the toilet is leaking. It could be a number of different things, such as a leaky flange or deteriorated rubber gaskets. Determining what the problem is will not always be easy and requires you to know your way around the toilet’s mechanisms.

One of the easiest ways to check what the problem is and see if it is an easy fix is to lift the lid and check the seals. Closely inspect the entire toilet to find any damage or problems that may be causing your toilet troubles.

For most repairs, it is easier and cheaper to call out a professional plumber. They can quickly diagnose the problem and put a plan in action, instead of you spending the entire weekend trying to work out where the leak was coming from. In most situations, it is advised to enlist professional help when dealing with plumbing problems
