Toilets may not be something you spend much time thinking about, but they can be a major headache if they go wrong. Here’s your handy guide to types of toilet, how to avoid blockages and possible solutions for the most common problems.
You’d be surprised at just how many blockages are caused by people flushing inappropriate things down the toilet! Unfortunately, we are not responsible for clearing blockages caused by misuse, so:
There are several different flushing mechanisms and so there could be a number of different reasons it’s not working. In which case, please contact us if your toilet is not flushing properly.
It is advisable to check toilets to ensure they are flushing correctly on a regular basis. Should you experience water trickling or continuous flushing, please contact us.
Leaks can sometimes occur from a toilet cistern, particularly where the mains water is connected to the cistern and where the cistern connects to the toilet.
The New Home Customer Care Team is available via phone and email.
