I'm slowly going mad trying to fix my close coupled Ideal Standard
(made in 2000) Kyomi toilet cistern.
The cistern was leaking externally and ruining the floor, so I have
removed the cistern and completely replaced all its internals (siphon,
inlet and external overflow ).
However I cannot seem to seat the replacement external overflow pipe
correctly as it still seems to drip (the toilet blue coloured) water
down the outside of the overflow pipe.. Thankfully I am doing my
testing with the cistern in the bath!
I have fitted the supplied rubber washer on the inside of the cistern,
however it seems that water is still making its way around the washer
(on the inside of the cistern) and down the outside of the overflow
Has anyone got any suggestions?
I'm a little surprised that this is leaking despite it being a new B&Q
external overflow pipe, rubber washer and plastic nut kit, however I
suspect it has to be the way I fitted it (what else coult it be?)
Advice gratefully received (to say the least)
