Q: How do you plunge a drain?
First you need a small plunger. Next you put some water in the drain until the drain starts to back up. Put the plunger over the drain outlet and push up and down on the plunger trying to push the force of the water down the drain outlet. Try not to force the water out the side of the rubber on the plunger. When successful the water should flow away.
Q: If I dropped an earring down the basin drain will it be gone forever?
There is a good chance that it should be in the trap under the sink as long as you have not flushed too much water down the drain.
Q: Are all new toilets water saving toilet suites?
Yes: In Australia you can not sell a toilet with out it being WELLS approved.
Q: Do I need a new cistern if my toilet leaks?
If your cistern is made of vitreous china all parts within are replaceable. If your cistern is plastic it may be more cost affective to replace depending on age and make.
Q: What can cause a toilet to block?
It can be a couple of things depending on the location and plumbing of the toilet. If on the ground floor it is most likely tree roots but could be a paper blockage commonly known as a soft blockage. If toilet is located on the second floor or above it is more likely to be a soft blockage. This could be paper or a foreign object. It is common for the toilet odorizer that clips on the side of your bowl to fall in and be flushed down the drain and become caught on the s trap or bend.
Q: What do I need to consider when getting a new toilet suite?
There are a few things to consider when choosing a toilet suite to replace your existing suite. Firstly, is the waste pipe an S trap or P trap? Secondly, what is the set out of the waste pipe? This is the distance of the waste pipe from the wall to the center of the pipe or from the ground up to the center of the pipe. Thirdly, what is the entry point of the water? Is it a bottom or back inlet?
Q: What does it mean when water continually drips into the bowl?
This means the inlet valve, the outlet valve or both need to be replaced or serviced.
Q: If taps are hard to turn on and off do you need to replace with new taps?
No, not always. It does depend on the age and the quality of the tap. A lot of the time the tap can be pulled apart and cleaned.
Q: What do you do when servicing a tap?
There are three main things. First is cleaning and re-seating the seat. Second is pulling apart the spindle, replacing the “O” ring, cleaning the thread and re greasing. Third is supplying and installing a heavy duty washer.
