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.

    From my first conversation with Tom, I was treated in a very professional manner. The quote I was given was fair. Nathan and Aaron were two polite young men who dealt with my plumbing problem promptly and expertly, leaving my house so clean. Excellent workmanship and customer care. I highly recommend Water Tight Canberra. Thank you!!

    We contacted Water Tight as our contracted plumber could not find an ongoing leak. Tom and Sam went above and beyond to identify the leak, which turned out to be from a faulty toilet pedestal. It was still within the warranty period but, due to difficulties with the original provider/installer, Tom personally contacted the manufacturer on our behalf and the manufacturer then replaced the faulty unit under warranty. We cannot recommend them highly enough. Update May 2019...... We returned from a holiday to a broken tap....fast, efficient and professional response and replacement. Highly recommended

    Water Tight provided an excellent job on 25/02/2019. They located the burst water pipe and repaired it immediately. We are so happy with the great service and the professional crew. I strongly recommend this company for any plumbing need that you have.

    I arrived at my townhouse on a Friday afternoon at about 1:30 after a week away to find that the hot water service had sprung a leak during my absence. I called Water Tight and a representative (Tom) was here within an hour. After an inspection and quotation Tom undertook to replace the HWS that day and did so with two other members of staff. I was very favourably impressed with the prompt and efficient service. I would recommend Water Tight to anyone with an urgent plumbing problem.

    I'm after a good plumber, saw lots of positive comments here and the expertise on the business website, I decided to contact them as I have regular plumbing need. First the people are not at this address, even the lady answered my call, is not here. She is somewhere in the cyber-space. This was the first thing disappointing as I was at this location at the time and keen to talk to the person doing the job. She can not answer any my inquiries, so left my number for calling back. Two days past till today I have not received the call. This makes me to think when I have drain blockage or how water blast, I really need it fixed same day .....
