When you invest in a good quality toilet then you can be assured of reliable performance for several years. This would mean that you would not have to worry about repairing or getting any of the parts replaced for many years after installation of the toilet. ToiletSquad’s Top toilets belong to this category of low maintenance toilets that last long. But even the best toilets might occasionally encounter leaks. Good quality toilets mostly have easy ways to be fixed and these repairs can be done by yourself with a handful of tools and within a short duration. So what should you do if you have a leaking toilet?
Identify the type of leak
When we talk about leaking toilets the leaks could be near the flange or from the flush. The first step is to identify the place from which the toilet is leaking this would help you identify the solution to the leak.
Evaluate the overall flush mechanism. In most cases getting the float replaced can do the trick. Sometimes, in the case of gravity based flush the float mechanism failure causes the water to keep leaking even after you have stopped triggering the flush.
If that doesn’t solve the issue inspect the connecting joint between the flush and the toilet bowl. There is a gasket that customizes the flow.
In most cases, the flooding issues that are noticed occurring around the toilet bowl are caused due to the faults in the wax seal. Even if you have the best quality toilets, depending on the quality of the wax seal used and the water quality the life of the wax seal varies.
Sometimes the water inlet pipe that supplies water to the flush tank could be loose and this could be causing the leak. In this case, tightening the fixture would solve the issue.
