It may be that the washers are worn out, or you might have the nut too tight.

Cistern leaks into bowl


Depends on the country you live in, but in North America, you need a new Flapper in the bottom of the system. Cheap to buy and take 10 minutes to fit.

Pictures and video of them.

I have just bought and installed the newbury close couple tiolet but when i flush it there is water leaking from the bottom of the cistern, but it only happens when i flush it any hlp would be great.


You need the proper wax ring to seal the toilet to the flange. Remove the toilet and check the wax ring. If it isn't compressed, get a spacer and a thicker ring.

Caroma toilet 12years old, concealed cistern. Water leaking around base when toilet is flushed. water level maintained when not flushing, so the leak must be between the cistern and the bowl. Had a plumber...


Fixing a leaky toilet is actually rather simple, requiring few tools and just a little time and effort. In looking at Caroma toilets on Google, they appear to be just a standard type of unit, and should present few if any problems for yourself or any handyman of modest skill.

If it is leaking around the base of the toilet - where the toilet sits on the floor, the repair item is a simple wax seal. Here is a tutorial to effect this repair: Replace Toilet Wax Ring. The wax ring is very inexpensive, usually $5 to $10 USD.

If the water is leaking from between the tank (cistern) and the toilet bowl, the job is even easier, as it does not require lifting and moving the entire toilet. A good tutorial for that repair is here: How to Replace Tank to Bowl Gasket . The gaskets, new nuts, bolts and rubber seals come in a kit and also cost only $5 to $10 USD.

I am sorry to hear your Plumber insisted you buy an entire new toilet, but do remember he is in the business of making money!

Trying to remove Porcher Posh BTW toilet. Screws in side of bottom unit do not "undo". They are loose but do not unscrew from base. I have loosened cistern but that is all - "loosen". Screws again undo but...


Removing toilet seat hardware can be a problem, especially as it is prone to corrosion - but it can be done. You can attach a pair of gripping pliers to the nut, apply thread lubricant, and unscrew the bolt from the top OR you can use one of those blade-and-handle hacksaws to cut off the nut OR you can use that little hacksaw to cut off enough excess bolt length to allow a socket to engage the nut and allow the bolt to be removed from the top.

I can hear a dripping of water but the washer is fine. The water tap is turned down low, I'm a female and not familiar with the makings of a toilet cistern how does the centre flushing mechanism come out....


Anytime that you have water dripping between flush cycles, it is caused by water leaking through the flush valve. Without being able to look at it I would recommend placing the entire flush valve assembly (flush ball/plunger and the valve seat (washer). The part is not expensive, although the labor may be. You could replace the flush ball or plunger (whichever type it is) yourself and that may correct the problem.

My toilet only leaks when flushed. It seems to be coming from the connection at the tank. The tank is not cracked and a new hose from tank to shut off valve has been installed. The toilet is only 4 years...


If you have 2-part toilet, then tank is attached to bowl with 2 bolts.
Look inside tank and you can see bolts with rubber washers located on either side of flush valve.
The 2 bolts hold tank and bowl together and between tank and bowl is a washer called the spud washer.
So spud washer could be leaking ... or 2 bolts could be leaking.

1) If bolts are leaking, there is usually dripping all the time, and drips are visible on bottoms of bolts
If spud washer is leaking, then tank could leak only when tank is flushed.

2) First thing to try is tightening nuts on the 2 bolts. Nuts may be loose. Tighten nuts a few turns, and check if toilet still leaks.

3) To fix a spud washer, you usually need a new generic one from hardware store.
Newer tanks with 1.6 gallon flush have special sized spud washer.

If you cannot find new spud washer, re-use old one and smear retorseal on it during re-assembly to make sure it seals. Rectoseal is good for many home plumbing repairs. More about that in a moment.

4) To take apart tank: Disconnect supply line to tank. Empty water out of tank. Remove nuts from bolts. Lift tank off. Wash out tank with hose. Make sure there is no sand or sediment left in bottom that might clog up flush holes located inside bowl after tank is re-assembled.

5) Remove old spud washer, and put new one on. Do a google-image search for 'spud washer' if you need more photos. New spud washer fits over flush valve. That's it. And then reassemble tank.
If you want to apply rectorseal to washer, put washer on as shown in photo above. Then smear-or-gawm rectorseal over area of washer that sits on bowl. Rectorseal will make sure there is no more leaking.

How do i fix a cistern that is continually leaking in to the toilet bowl? i have tried to open the cistern at the flush button unit but do not want to force open. tried twisting but is quite tight.


most modern toilets do not have an overflow pipe to outside instead they overflow into the bowl itself so have to adjust level so it does not overflow into return

Received no instruction manual with tank and broken plastic nut


The piece you are referring to is the water inlet to the tank. go to your local hardware store and buy a new one. It installs on the bottom of the tank. Use an adjustable wrench. Nothing on the toilet needs to be extremely tight. In fact after you put the was ring on the bottom of the toilet. Drop in the closet flange bolts in the closet flange (brass bolts with a t on one end) do not tighten them extremely tight the toilet will break.
