We use the toilets in our homes every day, and take for granted the fact they mostly work without problems. When issues do occur, they are most commonly in the form of drain blockages, or due to some other fault in our plumbing setup. However, a component of toilets that can frequently breakdown is the cistern. If yours has broken to such a degree that it cannot be fixed, then you must consult with a professional plumbing team who can carry out a replacement.

Through our expert plumbing installations, we’re able to deliver new toilet cisterns that have suffered severe damage or are in need of replacement. Contact us today if you need assistance with your loo.
Modern homes rely on the smooth operation of toilets, which in turn depend on the functionality of the attached cistern. They work through a siphon being raised inside the utility when water is released into the toilet bowl. As the siphon is raised, it tilts a lever and shuts off the ball valve to stop the flow of water. Clean water is then pumped into the main body of the cistern so that the flush can be used again.
Due to its frequent use, toilets require regular upkeep and maintenance. Most of this work involves cleaning, and, fortunately, the cistern itself does not require attention often. However, if no cleaning is carried out whatsoever, cisterns can encounter issues over time. This is particularly the case for older models that may have been in use for many years. Without a functioning cistern, you will be left in the frustrating predicament of not being able to flush your toilet.
There are some common signs to look out for that may indicate that your cistern is broken, including:

After noticing that the house was unusually cold, we found that the heating wasn’t coming on and that our hot water had also failed. We called the team at No 1 PHD who dispatched an engineer to investigate. After discovering that the culprit was a faulty boiler part, they ordered in a new part and got it fitted as quickly as possible. The guys were great, and we couldn’t be happier.
For days, we’ve noticed a foul smell coming from outside and a gurgling sound coming from one of the drains. Whenever it would rain, the area around it would flood slightly and take ages to drain. We tried buying drain unblockers, but none seemed effective. Eventually, we turned to No 1 PHD and were left wondering why we didn’t do this sooner.
