What are we talking about? How long does it typically take to repair a leak from a toilet?
Typical time 1hrs pipework only, from 2hrs toilet outflow
Dependencies Being able to turn the water off
Questions to ask Is there an isolating valve? If not does the customer know where the main stop cock is? Is there a roof tank (in older properties toilets were often fed from the roof tank). Make sure the cistern and pipework is accessible. In some modern properties they are boxed in and /or tiled in which case the main task is getting access!


Repairing leaks on the inflow pipe may mean either tightening or replacing joints/couplings to the ball valve or replacing the ball valve as described elsewhere.

Leaks on the outflow pipe (that's the smelly end) are more often than not caused by deteriorating seals and can mean the entire toilet needs to come out. Typically this involves disconnecting the water supply, overflow and outflow connections and getting those rusty old screws out which hold the bowl down!
