  • signs-your-toilet-is-leaking-toilet-bowl-leak-services-toilet-bowl-city-singaporeToilet Makes Noise
    If you still hear such noises even when you are not using the toilet bowl, then this suggests that there is a movement of water within your toilet bowl that is not related to the flush valve. This signifies that the toilet bowl is leaking and if ignored, it can pose serious problems.
  • The Floor Is Stained Around The Toilet
    If you see brown, grey, or yellow stains close to the base of your toilet bowl, then it can be because of a toilet bowl leak. 
  • The Floor Is Damp Around The Toilet
    If your floor stays damp even after a few hours of not using the bathroom, then a toilet bowl leak can be the cause of it.


The Possible Dangers If You Ignore A Leaking Toilet Bowl

It Can Waste Water

Once you flush a wall-mounted toilet bowl or a floor-mounted toilet bowl to wash away the waste, the water should stop flowing in the toilet bowl immediately. The water leak is not washing away any waste in the toilet bowl, so it is effectively wasted.

The Costs of A Leaking Toilet

The leaking water can also damage the components of the toilet bowl, greatly reducing its life. To reduce wasting time and money, homeowners should lookout for signs of a leaking toilet bowl and have it repaired quickly.

So last week, we contacted Everyworksto repair a WC bowl leakage. The CSO Dessa, responded to my Whatsapp message almost immediately, and identified the problem was due to the pan collar issue.

Different Types of Toilet Bowl Leaks

Your toilet bowl can start showing problems after years of regular usage. One of the most common problems that people experience is a toilet bowl leak. By taking note of them, you can prevent major damage to your home. Thus, here are the different types of toilet bowl leaks.

Leaking Toilet Pipe

toilet-pipe-different-types-of-toilet-bowl-leaks-toilet-bowl-leaking-services-

Pinholes will start forming when the pipes get corroded, thus resulting in toilet pipe leaking. Pipe corrosion is generally a result of low or high-water pH levels. It will be a good idea to install water treatment tools if you have a low or a high pH water level to help keep the pH levels balanced.

Toilet Leaking At The Base

base-different-types-of-toilet-bowl-leaks-toilet-bowl-leaking-services-toilet-

If your floor-mounted toilet bowl has not been properly mounted, over time, its bolts can get loose and wobble slightly. This also happens when it receives too much force and is used daily. You can tighten these bolts, flush your toilet bowl a few times, after that your toilet bowl leak issue might be solved.

Leaking Toilet Bowl Flush Valve

flush-valve-different-types-of-toilet-bowl-leaks-toilet-bowl-leaking-servi

Another sign that your toilet bowl is leaking can be the toilet bowl’s flush valve is leaking into the bowl. What you can do is make sure the float is present at a level that does not let the water move into the overflow pipe. In case the water is moving into the pipe, then you just need to bring the float level down.

Toilet Bowl Leaking Cistern

You may also have a leaking toilet cistern that can be a result of various issues. There can be a problem with the flapper. At times, the flapper may get stuck in the open position and keep on letting water in. It can also be that the water valve is not set correctly. 

Leaking Toilet From The Tank

Whether it is a wall-mounted or a floor-mounted toilet bowl, a toilet bowl has two parts – the bowl and the tank. The part where the bowl and the tank connect can get loose and then there can be a leak.  

Toilet Flapper

Flappers will deteriorate over time. You may notice a toilet bowl leak when little pieces of grit or debris come between the flush valve and the flapper. It makes the water inside the tank leak into the toilet bowl. One more reason behind a toilet bowl leak is when the flapper does not immediately close onto the flush valve or suddenly gets hung up. 

After becoming familiar with the different types of toilet bowl leaks, be sure to also learn about the reasons behind a leaking toilet bowl.

 

Reasons Behind a Leaking Toilet Bowl

One problem that most people experience is a toilet bowl leak. You may have seen water pooling near your toilet and causing damage to your floor or walls. Your internal pump may also be left running thus wasting water and increasing your monthly utility bills. In order to help you prevent such issues from happening, here are the reasons behind a leaking toilet bowl:

Condensation On The Bowl

Before jumping to a conclusion that your toilet bowl is leaking, check first if it is just condensation. Bathrooms can get easily humid, particularly after a shower. As a result, condensation may drip near your toilet and you may mistake it as a sign of a toilet bowl leak.

Crack On The Tank Or Bowl

Your toilet bowl is created to hold water and the bowl is supposed to be durable. However, over time it may develop cracks. Water may directly drain into your bathroom through these cracks. If there is a crack in the structural part of your toilet bowl and it results in a leak, then ideally, you must replace the toilet bowl.

Rusted Pipes

rusted-pipes-reasons-behind-toilet-bowl-leak-long-form-toilet-bowl-city-singapore

The pipes leading to your toilet bowl can start rusting over time due to various reasons. Eventually, this may cause a crack in your pipe, and water can start leaking around your S-trap toilet bowl or P-trap toilet bowl.

Loose Or Worn Out Seal At The Base

If you notice the water has started to pool up close to the base of your HDB toilet bowl, then chances are that there is a toilet bowl leak. This may be due to the worn-out or loose parts that connect your toilet bowl to your floor.

Loose Or Worn Out Tank-To-Bowl Connections

The bowl and tank in 2-piece toilet bowls are connected with the help of bolts, nuts, and gaskets. If either of these parts gets loose, then you may notice your toilet bowl leaking water in that area. In case you find water on the floor close to your toilet bowl, it can be a result of a broken or cracked tank. 

Misadjusted Flush Valve Assembly

misadjusted-flush-rusted-fill-valve-reasons-behind-toilet-bowl-leak-long-form-toilet-bowl-city-singapore

Your toilet bowl can also leak in the interior. One of the signs could be dripping noise or your toilet bowl continuously running. The leak in the interior part can be a result of some issue with the flush assembly. Most of the time, this will make the water move into the overflow valve and continuously fill up your tank.

Worn out flapper

Even a worn-out flapper can result in an internal toilet bowl leak. The job of the flapper is to prevent water in your tank from moving into your toilet bowl – be it a wall-mounted toilet bowl or floor-mounted toilet bowl. Though flappers are simple devices, they can get damaged. 

Bad float

Water must stop flowing into the tank of your toilet bowl after reaching a certain level. The float remains on the top of the water, controlling the water level. When it reaches the right point, the flapper disengages the supply. If you notice your toilet bowl tank is overflowing, then it can be because of a bad float. 

Rusted fill valve

rusted-fill-valve-reasons-behind-toilet-bowl-leak-long-form-toilet-bowl-city-singapore

If your tank overflows and it is not because of the float, then your fill valve may have corroded or got damaged. This valve, together with the float, controls the water that moves into the tank. It helps to make sure the tank is as full when needed.

Broken connectors

There are many connectors present in your toilet bowl that help prevent your toilet bowl from leaking. If the seal of any connections is lost, then it can result in a toilet bowl leak. When this happens, you will need to replace the connector. 

Once you have learned about the reasons behind a leaking toilet bowl, find out more about the signs that your toilet bowl is leaking.

 

6 Signs That Your Toilet Bowl Is Leaking

Like other fixtures, your toilet bowl can also start showing problems. If you do not notice the signs, then it can lead to bigger problems, and your toilet bowl may eventually stop completely functioning. As such, it is vital that you learn about the 6 signs that your toilet bowl is leaking.

Toilet makes noise

toilet-makes-noise-signs-of-toilet-bowl-leak-long-form-toilet-bowl-city-singapore

Once you flush your toilet bowl, you may hear the noise of the pressure building up within the pipes or rushing water sound and that is quite normal. If you still hear such noises even when you are not using the toilet bowl. This signifies that the toilet bowl is leaking and if ignored, it can pose serious problems.

The floor is stained around the toilet

The water allocated per flush is only enough to clean your installed toilet bowl and cannot leave behind stains. The main reason why the stain has been created on the surface of the toilet bowl is the water is dripping more than usual. This only occurs when there is a toilet bowl leak.

The toilet leaks from the bottom of the tank

Perhaps your toilet bowl’s tank is leaking if you find water collecting at the base of the toilet bowl. If your toilet bowl is being used too often or you are using an older toilet bowl, then there are more chances of you experiencing such an issue.

The floor is damp around the toilet

floor-damp-signs-of-toilet-bowl-leak-long-form-toilet-bowl-city-singapore

The dampest area of your home is your bathroom. Even if you do not use it for an hour or two, the floor can dry up completely. Nonetheless, if your floor stays damp even after a few hours of not using the bathroom, then a toilet bowl leak can be the cause of it – learn more about the various types of toilet bowl leaks. 

Smell of sewage

smell-sewage-signs-of-toilet-bowl-leak-long-form-toilet-bowl-city-singapore

There is surely a plumbing issue if you get a smell of sewage in your bathroom. There are clear chances that both your toilet bowl and pipes are leaking. If it is not possible to fix the problem, then a professional plumber can suggest a toilet bowl replacement and serve as a buying guide for your new toilet bowl.

Metal parts have rust

rust-signs-of-toilet-bowl-leak-long-form-toilet-bowl-city-singapore

A 2-piece toilet bowl or 1-piece toilet bowl is mostly composed of ceramic materials, but some parts are metals. These metal parts will still corrode with regular exposure. When you find rust on their surface, it means they have been exposed to moisture for a much longer time. This happens when there is a toilet bowl leak and it needs immediate attention.

Now that you know the signs your toilet bowl is leaking, find out how to prevent such a leak from happening in the first place.

 

How to Prevent Your Toilet Bowl from Leaking

Older toilet bowl products would use a lot of water. This does not only increase utility bills but also harms the environment. Thankfully, modern toilet bowls only use about 3 liters (or less) per flush, thus helping to save a lot of water. However, leaks can waste around 200 liters per day, so it is very important to prevent toilet bowl leaks. Here are ways to prevent your toilet bowl from leaking.

Fix leaking toilets right away

fix-leaking-toilet-how-to-prevent-toilet-bowl-leak-long-form-toilet-bowl-city-singapore

If you discover the signs that your toilet bowl is leaking, do not wait for the problem to grow before handling it. Consider engaging in regular toilet maintenance to avoid any chronic leakage. When you identify and fix the leaking toilet problem, you will save both water and money for your water bills.

Don’t flush items other than human waste and toilet paper

toilet-paper-how-to-prevent-toilet-bowl-leak-long-form-toilet-bowl-city-singapore

Many people think they can flush items in their toilet bowl like cotton balls, cotton pads, Q-tips, etc. When you flush these items, it can result in common toilet bowl problems such as clogs and plumbing issues. Clogged pipes not only can result in a minor toilet bowl leak but so much more.

Don’t use chemical drain cleaners to unclog your toilet

chemical-drain-how-to-prevent-toilet-bowl-leak-long-form-toilet-bowl-city-singapore

Whenever there is a clog in your toilet bowl, you rush to the store to get a chemical drain cleaner. Such cleaners are very harsh for your toilet bowl, whether it is an S-trap toilet bowl or a P-trap toilet bowl. They can cause harm to your old plumbing fixtures and pipes and can even cause leaking water in your toilet bowl.

Inspect your toilet every six months

It is important you get your toilet bowl product professionally inspected at least twice a year. For this purpose, you can hire a professional toilet bowl service. They are well-trained, experienced, and can handle any toilet bowl issues. Professional toilet bowl services will also check your toilet bowl thoroughly and look for any faults.

Replace your flapper valve

The flapper is a thin plastic or rubber valve that is attached to a chain. If this does not close properly, then water will keep flowing into your toilet bowl. To find out if the flapper is closing correctly, you can add some drops of food coloring to your tank. If you see that the water in your toilet bowl changes, then there is a leak. It is important not to ignore your leaking toilet bowl as it may cause possible dangers.

Replace the filler valve

replace-filler-how-to-prevent-toilet-bowl-leak-long-form-toilet-bowl-city-singapore

Does your toilet bowl take long to fill after you flush or is it very noisy? If yes, then there can be a filler valve issue and cause different types of toilet bowl leaksFirst, you need to turn off the water and drain your tank by flushing to replace the valve. Next, unscrew the valve, remove it, and replace it with a new one. Afterward, you can test your toilet bowl and your problem should be solved.

After you have learned how to prevent your toilet bowl from leaking, keep in mind the possible dangers of ignoring a leaking toilet bowl.

The Possible Dangers If You Ignore A Leaking Toilet Bowl

A toilet bowl is an important part of every home or property that is used frequently throughout the day. After installing their toilet bowl, many families tend to ignore toilet bowl leaks since they are not aware of the risks involved. Here are some of the possible dangers if you ignore a leaking toilet bowl.  

It Can Waste Water

A toilet bowl, whether it is a wall-mounted toilet bowl or a floor-mounted toilet bowl, typically has a tank where water is stored for flushing the toilet bowl whenever needed. The toilet bowl will leak when there is a problem with one or more valves regulating the flow of the water from the tank. The leaking water is not washing away any waste in the toilet bowl, so it is effectively wasted. 

The Costs of A Leaking Toilet

Most Singaporean homeowners are billed according to the amount of water they consume. Generally, the leaking water can also damage the components of the toilet bowl, greatly reducing its life. To reduce wasting time and money, homeowners should lookout for signs of a leaking toilet bowl and have it repaired quickly.

Creates Annoying Noise

The leaking water will usually create a distinct noise. This noise can be irritating since it reminds family members that there is a problem to be fixed or a sign to replace their toilet bowl. It also makes it difficult for some or all family members to sleep or to concentrate on their work, thus reducing their productivity.

Can Cause Structural Damage To Your Home

The water will leak into the concrete structure of the home or building if the toilet bowl is leaking near its base, like a floor-mounted toilet bowl where the section is connected to the floor. This can weaken the building. The toilet bowl leak should be repaired quickly as repairing structural damage is expensive.

Health Hazard

Mold, mildew, and other harmful microbes grow in this environment. With this, respiratory problems can become a health hazard. Fixing toilet bowl leaks and learning how to clean and maintain your toilet bowl can prevent significant mold damage.

Knowing the dangers of ignoring a leaking toilet bowl is highly important. Equally vital is finding out why you should engage a professional to replace a leaking HDB toilet bowl.

 

Why Should You Engage A Professional Plumber To Replace A Leaking HDB Toilet Bowl?

A common problem that most Singaporeans face is their HDB toilet bowl leaking. This is why you need to engage into professional plumber. Here are some of the reasons why you should engage a professional plumber to replace your leaking HDB toilet bowl:

Equipped with the right tools and devices

right-tools-devices-why-should-you-engage-a-professional-plumber-toilet-bowl-leak-long-form-toilet-bowl-city-singapore

You will need the necessary tools and devices to fix your toilet bowl leak. When you contact a professional plumber, they will visit your place with the right tools and can fix common toilet bowl issues right away.

Trained and Skilled

trained-and-skilled-why-should-you-engage-a-professional-plumber-toilet-bowl-leak-long-form-toilet-bowl-city-singapore

If you hire a random plumber, it can be quite risky. You can engage a professional plumber instead, so you have nothing to worry about. Each of them is thorough – having gone through training and are skilled. They can also advise if a toilet bowl replacement or repair is needed.  

Provides Professional Assistance

Many people have basic plumbing knowledge and can fix small problems with their toilet bowls. For instance, your faucet is a little loose and slightly dripping, then you can fix it yourself. However, if your wall-mounted or floor-mounted toilet bowl is leaking water then things are different. This is why you should get the services of a professional plumber. 

Time-saving and cost-effective

If your toilet bowl is showing signs that it is leaking and you want to fix your toilet bowl’s leaking issues on your own, you must first invest in tools and devices that can be quite expensive. You will also have to invest time. Even then, chances are clear that you will not solve the problem right away.

If you choose a professional plumber, not only can they fix your toilet bowl leak but they can offer much more. A professional plumber can highlight the factors to consider when choosing the best toilet bowl to meet your needs and let you know what you have to do to avoid toilet bowl leaks in the future. 

 

Conclusion

When it comes to a common toilet flush problem like toilet bowl leaks, there are many different types. A toilet bowl leak can be classified as coming from the pipe, the base, the flush valve, the tank, or even the flapper. Among the reasons for a toilet bowl leak are condensation on the bowl, cracks, rusted pipes, and a worn out flapper. 

In order to know if your toilet bowl is leaking, check if it produces odd noises or if there are floor stains around the toilet. Also try to see if there are leaks from the tank’s bottom and if a sewage-like smell is present. 

If you have not yet had a major toilet bowl leak, there are ways to prevent it from occurring. These include not flushing materials other than waste and toilet paper (which can be a reason for regular toilet bowl chokes), avoiding using chemical drain cleaners, and replacing your flapper valve. Ignoring a toilet bowl leak can pose many dangers such as high water wastage, annoying noises, and structural damage. 

Fixing a leaking toilet bowl yourself is not advisable. Instead, engage a professional plumber to replace it for you. This is because they have the right tools, are highly trained and skilled, and are time-saving and cost-effective.
