Modern plumbing is quite simple and clear arranged, so repair the toilet with their own hands is quite feasible task.
If you have no desire or ability to call a specialist, then correct the problem itself will be a great solution.
Preparations before repair
In order to perform the repair work,you must prepare the locksmith tools and materials. It is necessary to close the water coming down the toilet. If water is not blocked, then there is a possibility of breakage of worn valve (for example, due to prolonged use), a pressurized water jet can hit.
In order to qualitatively carry out repairs plumbing fixtures, you must have the knowledge that can be gleaned from a variety of sources of information.
Causes of leaks, their elimination
Initially, it should be identified to find the cause of the leak. To do this, carefully remove the drainage tank, check the "pear" because the cause of the flow of water can be gapping her seat. If the "pear" is deformed, then it must be replaced with a new fill or sanitary flax, hemp, burlap or twine to return spherical shape.
If the "pear" is not deformed, and leakageIt continues, it is necessary to give weight, for example, by a nut, which is necessary to impose on the rod. In the event of a leak, which appeared as a result of corrosion on the seat, it is necessary to "pear" to remove, and from the surface of the saddle remove rust using sandpaper or sharp object (knife, scraper, etc.).
Flushing tank will not be filled due to misalignmentthe float, which is at its bottom. It is necessary to move the float arm in different directions. Often it helps to work the toilet is normalized. If no action with float given effect, water continues to flow, shut-off valve should be corrected, as it can be distorted.
The toilet can flow and where it is connected tosewer pipe. In this case the corrugation removed, whereupon the knife and sandpaper cloth (brushing) purified two seats (on a toilet bowl and at the end of the pipe), then lubricate them fresh sealant layer. New corrugation (preferably reinforced) mounted on the old location, and the ends of its carefully compacted using a sealant.
Better to have a toilet at home plate with cast shelf for connection of the cistern, which is low. It almost did not happen damage shelves, it does not break the cuff.
One reason may be a leak and weak tighteningbolts connecting the toilet cistern. The bolts should be tightened very carefully so as not to damage the ceramic toilet. Here are listed only the most basic causes of possible faults, and there may be more. In order to find and fix, it will take time, as well as a thorough examination of the components and parts of the sewage system.
