Nobody likes the idea of water from the toilet going anywhere other than into the sewerage system. Any water leak means higher water bills for you, and a leaking toilet can pose additional risks to the hygiene in your home, and in some cases, even its structural integrity.
Plus, there are better ways to spend your time than messing with the flush buttons and hoping the constant hissing of water will end.
Not sure if there's a leak?
The easiest way to tell that something is wrong is generally the sound. If your toilet is regularly leaking water, then the cistern will need to be constantly re-filling itself.
If the leak is still small, you may not be able to hear any sound, but you can still test whether the cistern is leaking by adding a few drops of food colouring into its water. If the colour begins to appear in your toilet bowl without you having flushed first, then you definitely have a leak.
Is there water pooling at the base of your toilet?
More obvious than a leaky cistern, a leaky toilet base is both hard to ignore and a hygiene risk. These are generally caused by damage to the seal at the base of your toilet, though there could also be a crack in the bowl itself. Get these looked at by our professional plumbers as soon as you can to avoid any potential health risks to your household.
