This could be due to either a clogged toilet or a damaged float. First things first, shut off the water flow. Usually you will find the water valve on the side of the toilet at the bottom of the water line. Tighten the valve completely in a counter-clockwise direction. After we have the flow of water stopped we can fix the problem.

Most of the time a clog can be removed with a simple plunger. For a more severe clog we will use an auger. Once the blockage has been dealt with we can reset the float and turn on the water flow at the water valve.

The way you go about fixing a leaking pipe depends on where the water is leaking from. If water is spraying from the joint, try tightening the joint. If this doesn’t work and ends up loosening a different joint – proceed with caution. A rubber patch could be the answer to fix a water leak directly from the pipe or you could try using waterproof tape to cover the leak.

Geyser Repairs & Maintenance in Johannesburg

Water heating systems like geysers need to be maintained to avoid costly repairs, just like any other system or appliance in a Johannesburg home. Without regular geyser maintenance, the integrity of the entire system may become jeopardized and you’ll likely require expensive repairs down the line. We generally suggest a geyser check up every 4 to 5 years to make sure the more intricate parts are still functioning and not costing you money.

While replacing fixtures like taps and shower heads can often help to reduce household costs, sometimes you might need to replace the entire hot water system also known as your geyser. Some reasons why you may need to call for a geyser repair or geyser replacement is because your current system is outdated or the anodes have become obsolete

Geyser Maintenance

  • Clean the pilot and burner
  • Remove sludge from the cylinder If needed
  • Measure the hot water temperature and pressure
  • Check if a tempering valve is required
  • Check the anode
