According to West Australian Water Corporation, toilet leaks are one of the most common leaks and can waste on average 25 liters per day. If you have a leaking toilet, it is costing you hundreds per year and must be fixed immediately.
Toilet leaks are caused by an ineffective flush valve system and fill valve problems. An easy way to check if your toilet is leaking, we recommend putting food colouring in the toilet cistern. If the food colouring shows in the bowl, it is time to get a plumber and fix the problem as your toilet is wasting water and costing you lots of money.
Another way a toilet can cost you hundreds per year is if you have a toilet with a single flush. By replacing a single flush toilet with a dual flush toilet, you can save hundreds per year as the dual flush gives you the option of half flush or full flush. The West Australian Water Corporation estimates that 90 litres per day on average can be saved by doing this alone!
