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 itself 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 have sent a notice of possible burst water pipe due to high water consumption. Two 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 dye 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 am very happy with the work done by Watertight. I was especially impressed with Ryan, he was the most honest and transparent tradie I've ever had. It was clear he took pride in his work, and despite a difficult install he did a good job. I like to ask lots of questions and see what's happening and was happy to put up with me and keep me in the loop. Thanks!

    Watertight Canberra was very responsive to a request for assistance to locate and fix a leaking pipe. We were fortunate to have Josh who was punctual, professional, friendly and hard working. Josh worked through a complex situation with the building material and location of pipes and was able to rectify the situation. We are very happy with the quality of work, professionalism and the competitively priced outcome of work completed. We will definitely use Watertight Canberra for any future plumbing needs and highly recommend this business!

    Brayden was really professional, told me about the work quoted, and went out of his way to get a new water heater installed for me on the same day. Couldn't ask for more. Will definitely call Water Tight next time I need a plumber.
