Leaking Toilets

Is your toilet constantly running?

Common symptoms include:

  • Toilet leaking water non stop
  • Constant hissing noise from the toilet
  • Toilet filling up by its self every hour or so
  • Water on the floor
  • High water bills

Leaking toilets can add hundreds or even thousands of dollars to your water bill. In fact at least every month or two Water Tight Canberra is called to a leaking toilet as Icon Water (formally ACTEW) have sent a notice of possible burst water pipe due to high water consumption. 2 recent examples include a tenant who was ignoring the leaking toilet and then received a $2500 water bill and a commercial client who had a leaking urinal and received a $6000 bill.

Quick methods to test for leaks on toilets:

  • Hold some toilet paper to the back of the toilet bowl. You will see the paper dampen if the toilet is leaking
  • Put talcum powder on the back of the toilet bowl
  • Put food die in the toilet cistern. Warning – This method should only be used if the cistern lid comes off easily. A lot of customers do further damage to their toilet cisterns by forcing lids to come off.

    I booked Watertight after seeing their van in our area. They arrived on the day and at the time booked and contacted us if any delays occurred. Over the past two months I have used Watertight’s services four times as part of kitchen renovations. Each tradesman has been on time and very helpful and I have no hesitation in recommending Watertight Plumbing for your plumbing needs.

    I contacted Tom about root herbicide treatment for our house. Tom was very easy professional and set up an appointment immediately. He also helped us clear two pipes that were unfortunately already blocked by the roots and charged us for the use of the eel once for two pipes. Overall, impressive workmanship at a competitive price. I'll definitely call Tom and his team again for any plumbing issues.

    Tom and his team did an outstanding job for us in fixing a blocked drain that other plumbers had insisted required digging up (costing $8000). Not only did Tom go above and beyond to help us, he took a personal interest and is damn good bloke. I don't normally write public reviews, but Tom deserves more than this few minutes of my time. I would highly recommend Water Tight Canberra and its sister company Canberra Blocked Drains. Thanks Tom

    Fast, efficient, friendly and thoroughly reliable is how I would describe my experience with Tom and his team. These guys really know their stuff. They get to the heart of the problem and will give you an honest appraisal with options. I would have no hesitation in using them again.

    A few weeks ago we had an emergency leak with the fridge tap. We called Water Tight plumbing late on a Saturday evening not expecting we'd get any help at that time. The young guy (I thought his name was Sam) came out in no time from Water Tight Plumbing. He was friendly, professional, honest and even took the time to explain our issue and test his work. Service like this is quite rare in my experience. I can't recommend this business highly enough.
