When the syphon on your toilet breaks

We received a call from an existing customer on Thursday just as it was about to hit 5 oclock in the evening.

They were in a panic as their upstairs toilet in your home had stopped flushing.

We discussed the problem with them in detail before booking a time slot in for the very next morning.

When we arrived, we quickly determined that the syphon in the toilet had broken. The syphon is what activates the flushing of water from the tank into the toilet bowl. But replacing a syphon is not as easy as unscrewing one and fixing in another. We had to drain the toilet tank firstly by turning off the water supply then draining out what water was still in the tank. Next we had to remove the cistern from the base unit which was made complicated by the fact that over the years, condensation from showers etc had caused the metal bolts to rust on. After some elbow grease was applied however we got the toilet cistern off, gave it a clean before fitting a new syphon to the toilet.

We conducted a few tests to make sure that there was no water leaking from the system.

All in all another job done – on to the next.

  • Quick resolution of problem and good communication.
  • Very friendly throughout the process. Clear information given and very thorough. I will be using them again!
  • JSL Plumbing & Heating replaced a kitchen and a bathroom tap and fixed a toilet where the cistern was leaking into the bowl. He was personable and professional, and provided advice on which replacement taps we might want to get for the bathroom. He provided updates on his progress throughout, and the pricing was reasonable. We have used JSL before and would happily do so again. Have also recommended this company to others.
  • Job completed to our satisfaction. Bathroom and en-suite left tidy and work completed in the timescale agreed and charged as per the quote. Good quality fittings used. Would certainly use JSL Plumbing Services again in future.
  • Jim assessed the leak, which required repair and offered an honest appraisal. He was on time, polite and carried out the work as planned. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him and would use for a larger installation in the future.
  • Had a bent radiator pipe I needed replacing and as I'd already called them out thought I'd get some bath taps fitted. I'd been putting the job off as it was in a really awkward tight place and knew it wouldn't be pleasant. The plumber was happy to help and it didn't cost me as much as I expected for the time and fiddly nature of the job.
  • Very good service with work done quickly after contacting company.
