Fixing Common Toilet Problems in Singapore Image
The toilet tank is where all the important fixtures take place and where most of your toilet maintenance will appear. The purpose of the tank is to enclose the water required to flush the toilet and to hide the plumbing device that fills and drains the tank. Related with a blocked toilet, tank problems can seem quite irrelevant.

Yet, weird noises or constant water running can be more than irritating and they can also be costing you money for the wasted water.

Our plumbers in Singapore can solve most of the tank difficulties rapidly and simply and can give you information, in order to preserve your plumbing system.

Repairing the toilet tank in Singapore

Once the plumber in Singapore knows how the toilet works, he can begin to look for the cause of the toilet tank issues. He will lift the cover of the toilet reservoir and will be able to follow the process quite simply.

If the water stays, the plumber will know that the float ball doesn’t grow adequate to lower the controller plunger in the ballcock assembly. A cause could be that the float ball is rubbing against the lateral of the tank.

If this is the problem, our plumber in Singapore will curve the float arm slightly to transfer the ball away from the tank side.

The common toilet problems that our plumbers can fix are:

•    slow tank fill;
•    double flusher;
•    weak flusher;
•    bowl water level drops;
•    slugging flush;
•    whistling tank fill.

Fixing a clogged toilet in Singapore

If the toilet water doesn’t go down it means that the toilet is blocked. In this case, our team in Singapore will make sure that water is not backing up into other drain, like the shower or the bathtub.

Plunging a blocked toilet can splash dirty water around the zone, therefore, old clothes and some walls protection might be a good idea, as our plumbers in Singapore recommend when they begin to fix your toilet problems.

The plumber in Singapore will scrub the washbasin with a toilet brush, particularly up under the edge where the rinse holes are. He will turn off the water source valve, will flush the toilet to clear the bowl and then will plunge the bowl to force out all of the remaining water. 

Repairing a toilet fill valve in Singapore

The toilet fill valve is a mechanism that permits the tank to fill with water to the proper level. The water is deposited in the tank until the toilet is flushed and this valve uses a drift to turn the water on and off.
The valve can run bad and can get to the point where even after correcting the float, the toilet will continue to run, wasting water. In this case, the plumber will replace the fill valve.

For any other problems regarding your toilet bowl or tank, please contact our team of Singapore plumbing contractors.
