Causes of Leaking Toilets

An expert can quickly and efficiently identify the cause of your toilet leak. However, if you would like to investigate the cause for yourself, you can check out the list below to help you narrow down the root of the problem.

Condensation
One of the most common causes for the puddle of water on your bathroom floor is condensation. This can happen when there is a strong difference in temperature from inside the toilet bowl to the room temperature. Usually, the inside of the bowl is cool and after a hot and steamy shower, this can cause the toilet to essentially “sweat” on the outside. This can happen all year round but mainly in the warmer months. This is not necessarily a plumbing issue but more so a ventilation problem. Be sure to open windows and turn on the fan to reduce the possibility for condensation. If you have wiped all the moisture from the outside of the toilet and you are still noticing a leak, check below for a few more causes to your toilet leak.
Cracks
You can put a non-toxic coloured dye in the toilet tank and let it settle for 10-15 minutes without flushing. This is an easy and visual way to examine where the leak is coming from. Scan the outside of the bowl for noticeable cracking in the porcelain. You may find a crack either in the bowl or the tank. If you have coloured water escaping from a tinted crack, then you may have to install or replace it with a new toilet. Unfortunately, there are no quick or temporary fixes for a crack. However, Under and Over Plumbing Solutions can help you install a new toilet with minimal disruption.
Misalignments of bolts, pipes, valves or floats
Something as simple as a misalignment in one of the working parts of a toilet, can contribute to a leak. It may be difficult to the general person to identify what may be out of line or is faulty. Therefore, it is best to call an expert to investigate and fix your issue immediately. This will save you time and stress.
Sewer Line Leak
If you have noticed a foul odour or spongy floors additional to your leaking toilet, this may be due to a leaking sewer line. It is absolutely crucial that you have this investigated by a professional plumber as this may cause huge problems to your home if left alone. Under and Over Plumbing Solutions can replace and renew pipelines if it is damaged.

How much does it cost to fix a leaky toilet?

The cost will depend on the severity of the problem and how long it will take to resolve. You may also need to pay for replacement parts if this is the cause of the leaking toilet, resulting in an additional fee. If the job requires more extensive repairs such as pipeline repairs, you can expect to pay more as this can be both a messy and extremely difficult job. In particular, if there are obstructions that can prolong the job. We can also remove a cracked or aged toilet and install a new toilet. Also, if you have other plumbing concerns that our plumbers can assist you with, we can organise a custom quote for you.

A small puddle may not concern many but you may notice a sudden increase in your water bills. A leak will run for 24 hours a day until it is fixed. Particularly in a hot and dry climate like Australia, we value our water and try to conserve as much as we can. Therefore, the water wastage from a leak can be astronomical when it is added up over the days and months. Save your money on your water bill by calling one of our plumbers and getting the toilet leak fixed today.

Mal is a down to earth plumber and carpenter.Easy to approach and happy to workout solutions with you when you know you want a particular problem sorted (E.g. storage or height of things, best plumbing options) And you don’t know what will work, he’ll suggest what could work well and give a different perspective, which can be better than the ones you come up with. He’s thoughtful of those with physical disability too.I had installed grab rails, shower seat, and a bathroom cabinet, plus he did some carpenter handyman installation of items for me. Which I couldn’t do because of my disability and my strength and height.He involved me in the process of what works for me.Thank you Mal

I had Mal from Over & Under Plumbing do a job for me today and I have only good things to say about him – he was quick to respond, was on-time, friendly and did the work efficiently and without fuss. As well, no attempt to up-sell me as some other tradies do these days. I’d recommend him if you need a plumber who will look after you.

I have been using Mal for few years now. A friendly and pleasant plumber never failed to turn up as promised when i asked him to do plumbing works at my place no matter small or large job. A trustworthy tradesman whom i just need to say any plumbing issues at home and he will do the rest to get it fixed. He has been very helpful also to guide me to other tradespeople when i needed them for jobs other than plumbing.
