Emergency toilet repair: Is a leaking toilet an emergency?

Is a leaking toilet an emergency and in need of an urgent toilet repair?

Emergency Toilet Repair A leaking toilet is considered an emergency, depending on the severity of the leak. If the leak is minor and can be easily contained or repaired, it may not be an immediate emergency. However, if the leak is significant, causing water damage, flooding, or posing a risk to electrical systems, it should be treated as an emergency. To treat this emergency, it is suggested to call an emergency toilet repair near you. 

Rapid toilet repair, the advice of Emergency Plumber Derby!

First, let’s start by framing what the quick step is, because not everyone knows it or knows that it is called that. You know, the handle that you turn to open the water in the toilet? Well, that’s the quick step! This solution for removing faeces from the toilet bowl is widely used in all old flats for two reasons, it works well, and it is much cheaper than the wall-mounted cistern. So it is not surprising that in UK it is now the most widely used solution in bathrooms.

Differences between quick step and toilet cistern

Both perform the same function, but unlike the cistern, the quick step does not store water. In the wall-mounted cistern, the water is stored in the tank behind the wall and then, thanks to the buttons, is cascaded into the toilet bowl. Because, in an ecological context, there are two flows, one for liquid waste and one for solid waste. With the quick step, on the other hand, the flow is made to flow until the excrement is eliminated. You can see why the cassette solution is more ecological, less water is needed and therefore not only saves but also avoids waste.

Advantages of fast pitch

Compared to the cistern, the quick step is less expensive, which immediately puts it at the top of the list of favourites. In addition, the ease of installation and the fact that it can be used in tight spaces makes it the natural choice for the British bathroom.

Disadvantages of the Quick Step

The Quick Step is no longer compliant with recent energy saving regulations. This means that if you renovate your bathroom or do a total renovation of your flat, you do not have much of a choice – you will have to install an external or flush-mounted toilet cistern. Conversely, if you have to carry out a repair, this obligation does not apply.

What kind of problems can occur with the fast pace?

We are accustomed to thinking, incorrectly, that certain things never break, one of them surely being the toilet flush! After all, visually, apart from the handle, the whole system is inside the wall, so what could possibly go wrong? To understand what could go wrong, we need to understand how the quick step is composed and how it works. First, it is not just the part, the handle, that we see is made up of several parts. To be precise, we are talking about:

  • Handle
  • Round gasket
  • The valve seat.

The screw turned clockwise protrudes until it clogs the valve seat, interrupting the flow of water. The valve seat, which has no moving parts, is embedded in the wall and is connected to the flow pipe and the pipe going to the toilet. Internally, it is made to fit perfectly with the screw and its gasket.

What can go wrong?

Wear is basically the main problem with these exhaust systems. Over the years, wear can affect the different parts of the quick step, wearing them out. In many cases, a complete replacement of the screw and the gasket can temporarily solve the problem. But with the passage of time and the flow of water, not only will the gasket stiffen but also the valve seat will deform, making the replacement of the other parts unnecessary.

When this happens, it is definitely worth considering replacing the entire system.  If you need to replace entire your system. Call us to repair entire of your system.
