Is It Time For A Cistern Replacement?

Not sure if you need to replace your toilet cistern?

When considering function, you may only ever need to replace toilet cisterns if you face a fault with them. Ask yourself:

  • Can I hear water running instead of the tank?
  • Is my toilet flushing properly?
  • Is it old, outdated or damaged?

Issues ranging from a steady stream of water running into the bowl to the flush not functioning all contribute to reasons for changing toilet cisterns.

The other reason you may want to change toilet cistern is if they no longer suit your bathroom style. Perhaps you have recently renovated your bathroom, and the old cistern feels out of place. Alternatively, it could be that the old tank has become old and weary enough to appear unsightly, requiring a change. In any case, you may have your toilet cistern replaced within minutes.

Replacing Your Toilet Cistern With Ease!

Our Service First Plumbing expert will begin the replacement process by turning off the water supply. This will prevent water from flowing out while they remove the old cistern.

Next, your inlet pipe and screws will be unscrewed by our trained professional, all located underneath the cistern. Your old cistern will be carefully removed and placed aside, safely out of the way.

Following that, our Sydney plumbing expert will perform the steps above in reverse order to install the new cistern. They will start with inserting and tightening the inlet pipe, then placing the tank where the old cistern used to be. Utilising plumber’s tape and washers to their advantage, the inlet pipe will be sealed.

Once the new cistern is installed, the plumber will turn the water supply on again and check for leaks.

If any, they will act suitably, tightening the inlet hose with an adjustable wrench. We will do a final inspection and check over to ensure everything is working correctly. After this, your new cistern will be ready for use!

Changing Cistern FAQs

Still curious to learn more about changing your toilet cistern? We’ve answered our most frequently asked questions:

A cistern is a tank that collects and stores rainwater or other liquid. If your cistern is leaking, it’s likely due to a problem with the seal or with the gasket. Other possible causes include corrosion, a crack in the tank, or damage to the piping.

If you suspect that your cistern might be leaking, there are a few simple things you can do to check:

1. Look for any visible water damage or evidence of leaks around the cistern itself.
2. Check the water meter - if it’s moving even when no taps are turned on, you probably leak somewhere.
3. Listen for the sound of running water - this could indicate that the cistern is overflowing without your knowledge.
4. Pour some water into the toilet tank and wait for 10 minutes - if the water level in the tank goes down, then you’re losing water somewhere (probably through a leaky flapper valve).

It is possible to replace a toilet cistern yourself, but it depends on your experience level and comfort with plumbing tasks. If you have some basic plumbing knowledge and experience with tools, you may be able to do it yourself by following instructions carefully.

However, if you are unsure about how to proceed or are uncomfortable working with plumbing fixtures, it may be best to hire a professional plumber to do the job. This is especially true if the toilet is an older model or has unique features requiring specialized knowledge.

A professional plumber will have the necessary tools, expertise, and experience to ensure the new cistern is installed and functioning correctly. Additionally, they can quickly diagnose any problems that may arise during the installation process and make any necessary adjustments or repairs.

Ultimately, the decision to replace the toilet cistern yourself or hire a professional will depend on your level of expertise and comfort with plumbing tasks and the job’s complexity.

The lifespan of a toilet cistern can vary depending on the quality of the product and how well it’s maintained. Generally, a well-maintained cistern can last 10-15 years before needing replacement. However, if there are frequent issues with leaks or cracks, it may be necessary to replace them sooner.

There are several reasons why you might need to change your toilet cistern. One common reason is if it is damaged or leaking. Another reason could be to upgrade to a more water-efficient model, which can save you money on your water bills in the long run. Additionally, if your toilet cistern is old or outdated, replacing it can improve the overall appearance and functionality of your bathroom.

No, it is not possible to replace a toilet cistern without turning off the water supply. Turning off the water supply is necessary to prevent water from flowing into the toilet during the replacement process, which could lead to water damage and safety hazards. It is important to locate and turn off the main water valve before beginning any plumbing work.
