Toilets Repaired in Bolton, Fast & Efficient Service
Are you having problems with your toilet? We repair toilets all the time and there are many different things that we see go wrong. Here are some of the most common problems:
Toilet handle is broken or loose so you cannot not flush the toilet
If your flush operates by use of a handle and the handle is completely loose, it’s probably broken. You’ll need a replacement part to fix it. However if you lift the top off the cistern you can probably raise the arm inside to continue flushing the toilet until you get the replacement. It’s not the ideal solution but as a temporary measure it works just fine.
The toilet is constantly running and filling up with water
This means the flush valve isn’t closing to provide a seal as it should do. There are a number of reasons for this. For instance the chain needs to be the right length to let the arm settle into its proper place to close the valve. If it is too short, it won’t work properly. Flush the toilet with the lid of the cistern off and see what happens. This will enable you to see whether the valve closes fully or not – and what is stopping it from doing so.
The tank takes a long time to fill up
It could be the float isn’t working properly. Alternatively it might be due to a blockage in the pipe. However one of the more common problems is that the shut-off valve is partly closed. In this case simply turn it so it is fully open and see what happens. You might just have found a quick solution!
