One of the best ways to test for many toilet leaks is to get some dark coloured food dye and drop enough drops into the top of the cistern to change the colour of the water.
Wait 30-60 minutes without flushing your toilet. Return and check all around the toilet for any coloured dye, check around the base, the cistern, the flush pipe, and inside the bowl.
Outlet rubber – decayed, cracked or split outlet rubbers.
Inlet valve – plastic hardens and decays and can cause the valve to crack or split.
Outlet valve – plastic hardens and decays and can cause the valve to crack or split.
Flush pipe – seals decay and will crack or split leading to a leak from the cistern.
Key seal – waste leaks through the floor or wall seal due to the perishing rubber.
Cistern screw holes – a stuck inlet valve overfilling the cistern and overflowing out through unsealed screw holes.
Shut off valve – Just like your spindle taps over time the mechanism perishes and begins to leak the best option is to replace the valve.
Leaking water feed or flexi hose – Over time the rubbers perish and require replacing, as always the best option is to replace the entire hose.
