When to Get Help for Leaking Toilet Repairs

You hear a strange sound in your toilet or bathroom, and wonder why it is taking so long for the cistern to refill.  Or, it sounds like a trickle of water is happening constantly. Worse, even, that sound is accompanied by a smell that just shouldn’t be there right now.

It might be easy to wait and see what happens, however, a leaky toilet can start to impact things, including your water bill if the problem is left unresolved.

What you really want to know though is when to call for help in the leaking toilet repair stakes.

Here’s a few signals that it’s time to reach out to a plumbing professional in Perth

  • The cistern is not refilling correctly

This may be the first indication that something is not quite right with your toilet.  It can indicate an issue with the flow of water.

  • You are noticing small amounts of water on the floor

And um, no, it’s not an “aim” issue.   It is appearing even after no one has been present, and it is becoming more frequent.   What starts as a small issue, can be a sign that other structures around the toilet could be compromised.

  • You see mould

Mould can impact health and is a good sign that the leak needs addressing, as the area is becoming a breeding ground for bacteria.

  • You have an upstairs toilet, and the roof underneath it has a damp spot appearing

This is a definite sign that things need to be sorted out.  A leaking toilet can compromise the structures that surround it – including walls and ceilings.  In the worst case, it can cause a structure to collapse. You don’t want to have an upstairs toilet plummeting down a floor – a dangerous and costly experience.

  • Your water bill has been creeping up, without increasing your normal activities

This can also be a sign that a leaky toilet is starting to become a bigger issue.  If your water bill has been fairly consistent, and it starts jumping, this can be a sure sign that you need to manage the leak in more than one way – in your house, and in your wallet! 

What are the benefits of getting professional help with your leaking toilet repair?

Getting the issue sorted by a professional can help you in a few ways.  First, you can stop what might seem like a small issue from becoming a big issue.  Here are a few more benefits for you:

You can be confident that the problem has been diagnosed and sorted

A professional plumber will get to the root cause of the toilet situation, instead of you or a friend trying to DIY it.  They will save time and money by having the right experience and tools to fix your problem.

It can save you money down the track

Sorting it out with a qualified trades-person at the start of the problem will prevent it from becoming bigger down the track.  Plus, if there has been any structural damage, you will get an idea of how to approach the situation.

The team at Property Plumbing are chosen based on their experience and qualifications, so that you can have peace of mind in getting that leaking toilet repair finished in a timely and professional manner.
