Do you need a specialist plumber to fix leaking toilet?
Leaving your toilet unrepaired may result in excessively expensive water bills, a high chance of your bathroom being flooded, and sleepless nights caused by strange noises from the toilet tank. Toilet Repairs and installation Sydney when not done correctly can bring more harm than good.
What are the common plumbing issues in toilets?
The following clues may suggest that your toilet needs attention:
The ‘Phantom Flush’:
Your toilet periodically refills spontaneously, as though someone flushed it. This is caused by a slow leak from the tank into the bowl.
The ‘Weak Flush’:
A bowl that empties sluggishly, also known as the ‘weak flush’, can be the result of a problem with the flushing mechanism, restricted flow between the tank and bowl, a blockage in the waste line, or poor venting.
A standard toilet has at least five seals, and each of which has the potential to leak. If the seal underneath the base of your toilet fails, the leaking water will eventually rot the bathroom floor.

Toilet Repairs and Installations Sydney
When your toilet malfunctions, the results can range from mildly inconvenient to disastrous. Not only that, a malfunctioning toilet can result in an embarrassing situation for both you and your guests. Toilet repair should always be carried out as soon as a problem is discovered, as leaving an issue unaddressed can result in permanent damage to the toilet, your bathroom floor, or your entire plumbing system. Common issues include:
- Leaking Bowl, Tank or Another Component
- Constantly Running Water
- Flushing Problems
- Refilling Issues
- Blocked Toilets
Dial Up Plumbing has the knowledge and the experience to perform any kind of toilet system repair – here are some of the most common issues to look out for!
Leaking Toilet Repairs Sydney
Because toilets are made up of different components, leaking toilet repair can refer to a number of specific repair jobs. Most commonly, a leak will occur because one of the seals on your toilet has decayed, or ‘gone bad’ in some other way. A toilet can have five or more seals.
When the wax ring seal connecting the toilet to the floor fails, water on the bathroom floor and unpleasant sewerage smells can result. Worse yet, leaking sewerage water can rot your floor/ceiling from the inside.
To repair a leaking toilet caused by a faulty seal, it’s important that a skilled plumber installs the correct seal and does so properly. At Dial Up Plumbing, we can also repair or replace the cracked pipes or porcelain that is causing the leaks.
Flushing Issues in Toilets
According to Sydney Water, toilets accounts up to 20% water usage in residential properties. In order to stay sanitary and in good working order an indoor toilet needs to be able to get rid of waste through flushing. Unfortunately, sometimes the flushing mechanism on a toilet malfunctions. At Dial Up Plumbing, we are skilled in all kinds of toilet flush repair. Perhaps your toilet is simply making odd noises when flushed, or you regularly need to flush more than once to clear the bowl.
Issues also often arise at the refilling stage: the tank may fill up slowly or not at all, or else run continuously even though the tank is full. In some cases, toilets can even begin flushing on their own! These problems not only affect the sanitary workings of your toilet but can also result in a higher water bill.
Often, the culprit here will be one of the flushing components in the tank such as the fill valve, flapper, or flush valve. It may also be a problem with your water supply, which is always important to diagnose early before larger problems arise. The experts at Dial Up Plumbing will quickly find the flushing problem and repair it in no time.
Blocked Toilets Sydney
Easily one of the most mortifying toilet issues is the dreaded blocked toilet. In the best case, a blockage is simply the result of ‘soft’ build-up, which can be addressed by pouring chemicals down the drain and dissolving the blockage. Plunging may also clear the immediate blockage – however, when this becomes necessary on a regular basis, there is most likely a more serious issue that needs to be addressed.
Foreign objects or simply years of hardened build-up can require physical removal or a combined physical and chemical approach. Some of the most stubborn blockages can be caused by ‘hard water’ – water with high quantities of minerals in it. These minerals build up in your plumbing system, restricting or completely blocking the flow of water and waste. In the short term, we can use a powerful solution to dissolve these blockages – but as a permanent solution, we will install a water softener so that the build-up does not return.
In other cases, the plumbing itself may be at fault. Older or poorly designed pipework can certainly result in toilet blockages. This can include the ‘trap’ that prevents sewer gases from entering the home – especially if yours is an older style ‘S trap’. A slow septic system can also be at fault, as can too little water to the tank or low water pressure. Sometimes, even issues with separate parts of your plumbing system (e.g. the washing machine) can result in a toilet blockage. Our expert plumbers have the ability to properly diagnose the wide range of issues that can cause a clogged toilet, and provide reliable, long-lasting blocked toilet repair.

This can be due to a number of issues, but most often it is due to a faulty flapper or fill valve.
