everytime i get the plumber there always seems to be a leak where the inlet
goes, this is a new modern toilet instead of coming through the top, like
the old ball and chain, it keeps letting out water, ok when the plumber
originally fitted it, it wouldnt stop the supply coming in and it took along
time to fill up, and there was leaking water to the kitchen below. any
ideas, should i get a professional plumber i.e. corgi? or is that gas? the
plumber my bruv got turns out he is a builder from down the street
In that case I would use clear silicone sanitary sealant. You may be able to
find some in a small tube (similar to a tube of toothpaste) otherwise you
will need to buy a cartridge of the stuff and use a cartridge gun. If the
fitting is under water you will need to shut off the water supply then drain
the cistern, then undo the leaking fitting, dry it off, smear sealant on the
flange, washer, plastic nut or thread (depending on the site of the leak)
re-assemble, tighten up, leave for 20 minutes while the sealant goes off,
then it should be water tight.
