SIGNS OF A LEAKING TOILET
It is vital to watch out for indications of a leaking toilet, from visible signs to less than obvious signs:
- Brown stains – Brown stain at the back of the toilet bowl could be a sign of a leaking toilet, which is usually caused by the ball valve and washers in the cistern. These parts could be either repaired or replaced.
- Water is dripping into the toilet bowl – If you still see water coming into the toilet from the top after you have flushed and the water stopped running, then you have a leaking toilet. Faulty or old parts in the cistern could either need repairing or replacing.
- Water is leaking from the outside of the toilet bowl or the cistern onto the floor – The malfunctioning or old bolts in the cistern of the tank may need repair or replacement. It could also be caused by damage or cracks to the outside or inside of the toilet. The toilet may require replacement if the leak is due to damage.
