Dealing with a leaking toilet can be frustrating and messy, leading to unpleasant odours and potentially costly water damage if not addressed promptly. Recently, a Trigg resident experienced this exact problem and reached out to Plumbing Group WA for a solution.

The Problem: A Leaking Toilet

The concerned homeowner reported a leak from behind and underneath their upstairs toilet, accompanied by an unpleasant smell. Recognising the urgency of the situation, Plumbing Group WA responded swiftly to the call.

Our Diagnosis

Upon arrival, Plumbing Group WA experienced plumbing technicians thoroughly inspected the affected area. Gregg (PGWA) quickly identified the culprit: a failed outlet rubber. This common issue can arise due to the natural wear and tear of the component over time.

The Solution

Undertaking a potentially messy job with care.

  • Removal and Replacement: We carefully removed the entire toilet to access and replace the defective rubber seal.
  • Quality Assurance: Before reinstalling the toilet, we performed several tests to ensure it was functioning correctly without any leaks.
  • Sealing and Final Touches: Once we confirmed the toilet was operating as it should, we reinstalled and sealed it to the floor, double-checking that all connections were secure and leak-free.

The Result

The intervention was a success, with the toilet no longer leaking or emitting any odours. The homeowner was particularly pleased with the outcome, as the repair involved minimal cost—there was no need to replace the entire toilet, which kept expenses low. This approach resolved the immediate issue and aligned with our commitment to performing only necessary repairs to help our clients save money whenever possible.
