Brown water stain in toilet bowl

Postby Iestyn » Wed Dec 28, 2011 10:32 am

A brown stain has suddenly appeared at the back of the toilet bowl. I assume it is a water stain but the water from the cistern is perfectly clean and there is no staining anywhere else.
Any ideas as to how I can stop the stain re-appearing?

Simply Build It

Generally the mark is caused by rust. Either something inside the cistern is going rusty and the water is marking the pan or some piece of iron has come into contact with the bowl and is rusting.

Try cleaning with vinegar to remove stains.

Find a product with a diluted hydrochloric acid, get some rubber gloves and scrub your toilet using a nylon bristle brush.. and be careful

You can use a mix of vinegar (white) and baking soda.
Make it a paste like mix and use it to scrub the stains out. Works great for me.
