Water (constantly) discharging from ToiletPosted by admin in br2 plumbers boiler repairs, on April 3, 2014
If you are not confident enough to take this job on BR2 Boiler Repairs are fully skilled for any problem. Below is a collection of reasons how and why this might occur:1). Damaged or split siphon or flushing valve.In this particular case the flushing mechanism will need to be replaced in its entirety. This job would be better taken on by qualified experts like BR2 Plumbers as they have the relevant expertise.2). Worn washer.If a replacement washer for a valved flushing cistern is available (which will totally dependant on the maker of the unit) this should be the first port of call however it is highly likely that the entire mechanism will need to be replaced.3). Grit beneath the valve washer (valved type).Sometimes grit can prevent the valve fully dropping to form a seal at the outlet, you will have to twist the valve completely anticlockwise to free it from the base plate. This will allow the washer to be visually inspected. To carry out this action the water supply to the cistern will need to be isolated. If the washer is damaged or defective after the inspection the valve section may need replacing.4). Siphonic action failing (siphon type).When the cistern continues to produce a flow it may as a result of the cistern filling too quickly in which case a remedial action can be to close the isolation valve slightly. If this is not the case, then it could possibly be the piston is not dropping once the lever arm has been operated. In this case a close inspection of the lever assembly will be required to find the reason. 5). Water discharging through the internal overflow.This basically means that the float operated valve is not operating and is failing to closing off the supply. Again as above the unit will need to be inspected for defects.
