When it comes to leaking toilets, the technology involved has really changed as has the style of toilets we are now installing. In our you tube video below you will see one of our service technicians (Aaron) walk you through two of the most common faults we get called to attend to as licensed plumbers.
With the recent introduction of the dual flush toilet cisterns onto the plumbing market we have seen the overall design of the toilet suite itself change significantly. Today you will notice that the operation of the cistern itself is quite simple and compact. In the past, we were dealing with bulky awkward components which became very hard to repair due to their original design faults.
Today there are two main parts which could fail over the life of a toilet cistern and they are the water inlet valve and the outlet rubber. The inlet valve is today classed as universal part and there are a few different manufacturers on the market which now produce this product. At Mayfair Plumbing and Gasfitting we personally favour the Fluid Master Pro Series and the Geberit styles of inlet valves. When we then look at the outlet rubber it is a much thicker rubber donut style and contains more latex giving it a longer life. If you are familiar with the older style of outlet rubbers they were renown for breaking down and crumbling away over time.
As registered plumbers, we always recommend that the repairs to anything plumbing related always be performed by a licensed tradesman, but as the parts for these toilets are becoming increasingly available at hardware stores such as Home Depot, Bunnings, Lowes, Home Hardware and Mitre 10 we appreciate that people will try these types of repairs themselves. If, however you do feel that a task like this should be performed your local plumber please contact us today on 0429 361 819 or via the web at email@example.com with any questions, we are here to help you with your loo it’s what we doooo!!
