Blocked toilet

Postby lynner » Sun Jan 30, 2011 3:32 pm

Have noticed that my toilet flushes ok, but does not eliminate waste properly, have put boiling water down pan just to see if it will dislodge anything but still no joy. Any ideas? Thankyou

Simply Build It

When you flush to cistern, does the water level rise quite high in the pan..?
If it does, that would indicate a blockage.
If it does'nt ... are you sure the cistern is holding the maximum amount of water to complete a full flush.

The more modern low level cisterns only hold 6 litres, which is often only barely enough to clear the pan.
Another possible way of increasing the volume of water used in a flush, is to check and see if your flush valve is adjustable.
Without seeing what valve you have fitted, it would be difficult to advise.

A picture would help, and I'm sure others would give advice.
