Plumber Frankston: Kars Street Leaking Toilet Repair

Nobody likes the sound of running water in their house especially when there are no fixtures turned on. At Orbit plumbing we fix a lot of toilet leaks as there are a lot of different places toilets can leak from. Most of the time the call outs we get for toilets leaking, is generally from older toilets that are leaking water from the cistern to the pan. This is almost always one of two things or even sometimes both as this client was yet to find out.

When the Frankston Plumbers from the Orbit plumbing team arrived to the clients house the client explained what was happening to the toilet and took them through to the bathroom to show the plumbers exactly what they were talking about. The Mornington Peninsula Plumbers began the process of elimination, they turned the water on and right away noticed the water flowing into the pan so the plumbers knew what the problem was or at least thought they did. They had to  replace the seating washer for the flush valve, when they removed the flush valve the realized that the seating washer had disintegrated and was so brittle that when they went to remove it, it fell apart in their hands. They replaced the seating washer and reinstalled the flush valve. They started to refill the cistern and thought they had completed the job, they allowed the cistern to fill to realize that the problem was not yet fixed.

Our plumbers noticed that the cistern inlet valve was not shutting off and was allowing water to fill until it reached the over flow and allowed the water to flow into the pan. The plumbers knew what to do and rushed to the van to get a new cistern inlet valve. They explained to the customer what had happen and they installed the new cistern inlet valve and re filled the cistern with great success as they had rectified the problem.
