Don’t worry if your toilet has stopped flushing Anytime Plumbing Services are here to help
There are many reasons why your toilet has stopped flushing and below Simon has written some information, tips and advice on how to fix your toilet and the best way to avoid plumbing problems with your toilets.
Anytime Plumbing Services information and advice on toilets that have stopped flushing and Simon’s Top Tip number 1:
Isolate your toilet before you carry out any work on your toilet.
Some toilets may not have an isolation valve which means you may have to turn the water off to your whole house.
Anytime Plumbing Services can easily install a high-pressure isolation valve to solely isolate your toilet.
Anytime Plumbing Services Top Tip number 2:
Why is the water level low in your toilet?
If your water level is low on your toilet and it won’t flush the best way you can temporarily self flush the toilet is by pouring a bucket of water down the pan causing it to flush.
Low water level could indicate a problem with your cistern or indicate a blockage.
Anytime Plumbing Services can help increase your water level by checking your toilet cisterns, ball valves, and investigate blockages.
Anytime Plumbing Services Top Tip number 3:
Why is your toilet full of water?
A toilet pan full of water indicates a blockage.
Simon recommends you make sure the water level is one inch below the tank’s overflow tube and adjust accordingly.
Anytime Plumbing Services Top Tip number 4 to avoid blocked toilets:
Use 2 ply toilet paper. If you use 3 ply toilet paper or quilted toilet paper use sparingly as this does not dissolve as well.
Do not put wipes down the toilet
Avoid plunging the blockage as you may force the blockage further down the pipe.
Always check your manholes.
Anytime Plumbing Services can check your manholes for blockages or if you have a nasty smell outside your drains this could indicate a blocked manhole which we can unblock.

“Very prompt and reliable service. Phoned 6 p.M. One evening and he was here at 8 a.M. The following morning. Ball cock valve was leaking so replaced ball cock brass shank, and flexi hose which was corroded. Kept me informed at all times. I was impressed that in these difficult times he wore a mask at all times, and kept his distance. I would not hesitate to recommend him, and would happily use him again.“
