Using the right Toilet Sanitiser
Most customers I meet are amazed when I tell them that almost all toilet sanitisers should be banned and taken off the shelf. Don’t use in cistern products. The in cistern blue dyes and tablets corrode the inside of the toilet cisterns, majorly damaging the sensitive and expensive valves that are within the cistern meaning your toilet won’t last long between services. All of the toilet cisterns I have installed state in their user manuals that use of in cistern sanitisers should not be used and that doing so will void your warranty. Often you will also find a sticker inside the cistern alerting you to this.
Don’t use clip on toilet bowl sanitisers. As often as a plumber regrets biting his fingernails these little suckers snap off, and block your toilet line. Normally when this happens the toilet must be removed, so that the line can be accessed from upstream. Often when the toilet has been cemented in, removing the toilet will cause it to break, meaning you will also be up for a new toilet which could make the total invoice more than $750.
Water Tight Canberra, and most the other plumbers in Canberra that I know, recommend using Duck Fresh Disks when it comes to keeping your toilet fresh and germ free. These discs stick to the side of the bowl and won’t perish any rubbers or valves, or block your toilet.
