Modern toilets are excellent at removing waste while conserving water. They are, however, not without their difficulties. Toilets that are blocked or clogged are common among our customers. A basic toilet plunger may be enough to solve the problem in many circumstances, but there are times when you’ll need to call a plumber. We have plumbers throughout South Africa, including plumbers in Midrand, Cape Town and Pretoria.
When Do You Need to Hire a Plumber?
Are you unsure whether or not you need to call a plumber to clear your blockage? Blocked toilets can be difficult to deal with in some cases. To solve the problem on your own, follow these steps:
- Ensure that there is enough water in the toilet bowl to cover the plunger head halfway.
- Using a fast up and down motion, plunge the toilet.
- The toilet should be flushed. The water will drain once the clogged toilet has been repaired.
- Turn off the isolation tap adjacent to the toilet if the obstruction persists and the water level rises.
Is your bathroom sink or toilet still clogged? Toss in a cup of baking soda and three litres of hot water in a mixing basin. Pour in two cups of white vinegar slowly. The fizz should aid in the removal of the obstruction.
In certain cases, merely adding hot water and a small amount of dish soap would be enough. Hot water will dissolve clumped toilet paper, and soap will lubricate and propel the bulk along the pipe.
We’ll have your toilet up and running in no time.
A big obstruction will sometimes refuse to go away, despite your best attempts. Give the experts a call if you’ve tried everything else. Our professional plumbers arrive with all of the essential contemporary equipment to get things flowing again.
Any obstruction that has formed in the sewer pipe itself is likely to require the use of an auger or a high-pressure water jetter. It’s possible that the issue is deeper in your plumbing system, and our professionals will be able to find it and fix it fast.
Toilet Repair and Replacement
Repair a Leaking Toilet
Do you have a toilet that won’t flush? Are you dealing with a leaking or damaged cistern? Is there a water leak someplace in your toilet that you can’t seem to find?
Leaking Toilet Cistern
We can help with a variety of toilet repairs, including the following:
Blocked toilets are one of the most common complaints we receive from our customers. Despite your best efforts with a plunger, stubborn blockages might plug the pipes. Our professional plumbers will arrive at your home prepared for the worst and will utilize cutting-edge technology to unclog the line and restore functionality to your toilet.
Toilet Won’t Flush
A toilet that won’t flush is another typical issue we hear. There could be a variety of reasons for this, but unless the sewer line is clogged, the problem is most likely with the fill valve or flapper inside the toilet tank. Our plumbers can swiftly diagnose the problem and correct it.
Leaking Toilet Cistern
The cistern, also known as the toilet tank, is where the water that flushes your toilet is stored. The cistern, like the toilet bowl, is composed of ceramic, but it can be damaged in a variety of ways. Over time, even little breaks in the tank’s bottom might lead to leaking toilets. We provide cistern repair and replacement services so you can get back to your daily routine.
Supply and installation of new toilets
While we are pleased to fix most problems, there are situations when your old toilet cannot be rescued. In this case, we recommend replacing your old, leaking toilet with a new, low-flow, high-efficiency model that will save water while giving greater performance.
Toilet installation is also available in the case of bathroom restorations and remodels, as well as new home building. We have a large selection of high-quality toilet types to pick from.
