Toilet Repair – Fix my toilet flush and fill. Problems with Leaking toilet, not filling properly, not flushing properly I can repair and I can even replace your toilet
But because it is a toilet, something we all rely on, it is vital to keep it working.
When something does go wrong you need to get it fixed as soon as possible.
Let’s start by identifying a couple of these parts.
Do you have an issue with your toilet and want to book a repair but you just do not know which service to book?
This short video will help you understand and identify some of the parts and common problems associated with a faulty toilet. This is by no means written in stone when it comes to correctly identifying the problem however in many cases it does work well as a rule of thumb.
Here's an example of a "push button" type toilet cistern, which I captured in a photo after replacing the flush valve and fill valve.
In many cases, I also replace the seal between the cistern and bowl, along with the plate (if applicable) and connecting bolts.
You can find the fixed price for these services on our booking page.

The inlet or fill valve in your toilet cistern is the special mechanism that enables the water to flow freely into the tank. This ensures that your toilet will be able to flush next time you need to clear it. Over time though, these valves wear out and eventually when they breakdown you will have to hire an experienced person to repair the damage.
To help you spot when your toilet has a faulty inlet or fill valve, look out for the following three signs and deal with it as quickly as possible.
If you find that your toilet is constantly running, this is one of the most common signs that the fill valve is not working properly. However, it is not the only cause of a toilet that’s running constantly, so it’s best to rule out the other causes first, before taking any further action. Start by looking inside the water tank. If you see that water is constantly running over the fill valve and through the overflow hole, your float may not be set properly. If you have the type of float that is on a metal arm try to bend the float arm downwards to make sure the float triggers the water shut-off lower. If the toilet stops running constantly, then there’s nothing wrong with the fill valve.
However it maybe that you have a different type of float, and the most modern and usual type. If this is the case you cannot just bend a rod. You would need to make an adjustment on the inlet valve.
Generally speaking inlet valves have a rough lifespan of about 7yrs.
Using any kind of cleaning blocks on the cistern (water tank) will reduce this time considerably, and as such is not recommended.
Use cleaning products and blocks in the main toilet bowl only.
This one is easier to identify.
If your toilet is not flushing it is (most likely) quite simply your flush valve has broken.
Sure there may be other issues leading up to this but the biggest is its just breaks.
Such the button, the handle, the plastic mechanism.
