What causes toilet wax ring to leak?

If you in 2019 onwards have a toilet wax ring at the base of your toilet and it is leaking, it’s time to replace it. Toilet wax rings are old, outdated and not very commonly used in Australia anymore. The most common causes of the toilet wax to leak is old age, or if the toilet base has come loose and broken the wax seal to the toilet. Replacing this wax seal with another wax seal is simple and easy to do, but toilet wax is very hard to purchase in most Australian hardware stores.

Replacing the ring with a new modern pan collar rubber is more advisable and easier for you find at the local hardware.

Why does my toilet randomly run for a few seconds?

That random sound of your cistern filling with water is a painful sound specially if happens over and over again.

This is caused by your cistern leaking silently and without your knowledge of it happening. The cistern is leaking water slowly into your toilet bowl and the height of the level of water in your cistern is then turning your inlet valve on randomly to fill up. It may only run for a few seconds, but that’s enough to annoy even the most patient man or woman.

Repairing the leak in your cistern will then remove that unwanted random running of your toilet. The leak causing your cistern to randomly turn on is your outlet valve rubber. Changing that rubber will stop the random run for a few seconds.

How do you stop a trickling toilet?

A trickling toilet leak can keep you up at night, cost you lots of money in extra water bills and if left for long enough stain the inside of your toilet.

Luckily enough there are simple ways to stop a trickling toilet.

A trickling toilet is caused by either the inlet or outlet valve. Both of these valves control the water in your cistern. Inlet valves control water coming into your cistern and the height at which it fills up to. The outlet valve controls the water leaving the cistern once you flush it.

When you pull the cistern lid off and find that water level is too high in the cistern, you can adjust the height of the inlet valve. On the more modern inlet valves, there will be a cross head screw control that you can wind in or out that will adjust the water level. On the older style, it is a matter of bending the float valve arm down so that the water will then shut off at a lower height. Sometimes replacing the inlet valve is the easiest way.

A simple change of this washer is all you need to eliminate the trickling water.

What is a silent toilet leak?

A silent leak is probably something that you have no idea is there or will ever realise, as it is silent and you cannot see it as the water is clear.

A silent leak can be caused by one of two things:

One could be a faulty outlet valve allowing a small amount of water to pass under the base washer and down through your flush pipe and into your toilet bowl.

The second could be a faulty inlet valve. A faulty inlet valve can be over filling your toilet cistern and allowing water to pass over into the overflow pipe in your cistern. This then drains into your toilet bowl causing a silent leak. Your inlet valve will then keep on filling up and continuing to leak.

A simple test to find if you have a silent leak is to turn off the water supply to your cistern at night, and if in the morning you don’t have any water in your cistern you have found yourself with a silent leak.

Why does my toilet leak from the base?

A leaking in and around your toilet can be a daunting task to start with because it seems disgusting.

When you notice that you have a leak at the base of your toilet, you need to try and establish whether it is coming from the base of your toilet or coming from another part of your toilet (i.e. the cistern or even the water supply pipe or valve).

The leak at the base of the toilet can be caused by:

You have a leaking pan collar- a pan collar is the rubber connection that seals your toilet bowl to the pipe coming through the floor, back or side walls.

Another scenario is that it could be leaking from the cistern rubber that connects your cistern to the toilet, if you have a cistern that sits on top of your toilet pan.

If your cistern is fixed on the wall, your flush pipe rubbers could be leaking. They are located under the cistern where the flush pipe connects to the cistern and where the flush pipe connects to the toilet.

You could also have a leak on the cistern water supply pipe or valve.

These are all repairable and can be purchased at hardware to do it yourself, or you can simply call a licensed plumber to help you out.
