Plumber Baxter: Box Court Leaking Toilet

Our Baxter Plumber received a job to fix a leaking toilet. Over the phone we recommended to the customer that it may be easier to just replace the entire toilet as with very old toilets like this one you can run into so many problems that can occur although they decided to take the risk and just try to replace their pan collar.

Our Frankston Plumbers and Mornington Peninsula Plumbers will always try to give you the best advice available. It is hard to find the line with toilets as a lot of the time you can take the same amount of labor time to change the plumbing products on the toilet rather than just to replace it new.

On this job we started by removing the pan so that we could get to the pan collar. Once our Mornington Plumbers did this we realized immediately why – the pan collar rubber was facing the wrong way. It was because the toilet was set to far forward from when it was originally installed. So we had to extend the pan collar out a little further at the same time as replacing it out for a fresh one.

After this was complete we out the toilet back together and ran a test. Because we had displaced the pan cone which is the rubber seal that connects the bottom end of the flush pipe to the pan the old withered rubber would not seal any more so there was a new water leak to contend with. We replaced the pan cone with a new 50mm Kee seal which is a newer design for the same rubber and is a lot easier to install.

We tested the toilet again. After this third test our Somerville Plumber realized another leak had started once again. This time the leak was coming from the flush pipe rubber seal which is the seal that connects the top of the flush pipe to the cistern. Lucky we carry a lot of stock in our van.

We finally rectified this final leak and ran more testing successfully. It was a great relief to finish this job and to see a smile on our customer’s face.
