Toilet repair & maintenance

Unblocking a toilet

In most instances a clogged toilet can be fixed by using a  plunger, but make sure to have sufficient water in toilet bowl when using the plunger.

If the plunger does not clear the clogged drain, use a drain auger or sewer snake. 

If neither the plunger or  drain auger, nor the snake removes the obstruction, it may be necessary to remove the toilet from the floor, turn it upside down and force the obstruction out from the top or bottom. The toilet must then be correctly reseated.

Water is leaking through the handle

Reposition the float ball, If the float ball is too high it will allow water to run into the overflow pipe and out of the handle. 

Shorten overflow pipe, If the overflow pipe is too long you can use a saw to shorten it. The pipe should be at least 25mm below the handle.

Water is leaking around the flush valve

If the flush-valve assembly is damaged you will need to replace it. You might first try replacing the gasket over the locknut on the assembly and then the assembly itself.

Water is leaking from the shutoff valve

If water is leaking from around the shutoff valve you can use an adjustable wrench to tighten the coupling or use PFTE  tape to seal leak.
