Leaking Issues

There are a wide range of leaks that can occur in your toilet including:

  • Leaking from the bottom of the cistern
  • Leaking directly into the bowl/pan
  • Leaking when the toilet is flushed
  • Leaking out of the base
  • Leaking from the inlet or outlet valve
  • Leaking from the toilet water supply

Most leaks are caused by faulty seals and some toilets have more than 5 seals.  There are many types of toilet seals on the market today.  All seals wear out eventually, but depending on the quality and material of the seal it may wear out faster.

Seals become warn out and can form cracks, break  and sometimes completely disintegrate. The severity of the problem cause depends on which seal fails and could result in anything from a small drip to a severe leak every time you flush the toilet.

Toilet seal maintenance

It's important to ensure your toilet seals are replaced before they are worn to avoid leaks.  If it has been a while since your toilet seals were maintained, have a plumber visit to do an inspection and replace any seals.
