How To Repair A Leaking Toilet Tank?

December 11th, 2013 by

Emergency plumbers are now the best in Acton W3. They strive to provide all the plumbing services ranging from small to complicated jobs. Fixing a leaky toilet task is one of the major services you will find at Emergency plumber. However, this is a common plumbing issue that you can also fix it yourself. As long as you have the right tools and you know the necessary steps, it becomes easy to fix a leaky toilet tank.

It is important to change to rubber gaskets that are normally situated at the tank bolts. These gaskets normally deteriorate and fail to work because of the effects of hard weather and other forms of minerals. It is also important to have the right kind of tools at hand before you begin the process. An adjustable wrench, white vinegar and a screw driver will be necessary.

It is important to turn off the water before you begin the procedure. The water at the shut off valve below the tank should be stopped. Importantly, the tank should be drained completely. This is easy if you use the toilet. If there is any water remaining, you would want to soak it up using a sponge. The screw driver is used to unscrew the bolts of the tank.
