Common Reasons Why Toilets Won’t Flush

There are many different reasons why toilets won’t flush. But the main reasons property owners find it challenging to deal with these issues is that there is no standard diagnosis. Here we look at the common reasons why toilets won’t flush:

1. If the Toilet Is Clogged It Just Won’t Flush

These clogs are caused by the accumulation of waste which blocks the pipes. These blockages hamper the flow of water through the toilet. The best way to avoid this problem is to make sure that you don’t flush baby wipes, toilet paper, feminine hygiene products etc. down the toilet. Even if these products claim to be flushable, discard them in a bin rather than in the toilet.

2. There Is Less Water in the Tank

This is another common reason for a toilet that doesn’t flush. While it is possible to top up the tank manually, you may not have the time or inclination to do that every time you use the toilet. Experienced plumbers in Sydney will tell you that this problem is typically caused by:

  • Faults in the inlet
  • Low water pressure
  • Misalignment in the float arm

A licensed plumber in Sydney would be able to fix all of these problems.

3. Problems with the Overflow Tube

The overflow tube is a broad cylinder tube located in the toilet cistern. This isn’t really a tube at all, and the term is a little misleading. This small tank is a component of the flush valve. It regulates and controls the water flow into the toilet bowl. Any problem with this tube can mean that very little water will come out whenever you flush. Sometimes, just the opposite can happen, and an excessive amount of water may flow into the toilet if this tube isn’t functioning as it should.
