There are a number of things that can go wrong with a toilet, some are a simple fix, others require more time and money to fix them. Common issues people have with their toilets are that they wont refill, or won’t stop refilling, take ages to drain away and does not flush effectively or that they are leaking water. Often these sorts of problems are caused by issues within the cistern. It may be that a simple rubber seal has become damaged and needs to be replaced. The part will usually cost pence but the call out and the time for the plumber to fit it may be well cost more than £50. Ideally if you have a simple issue like this with your toilet, do some basic investigation work first. Toilets are often not overly complicated so you can easily take bits apart and put them back together again. You may well be able to find the faulty part and order one online or from your local DIY store and replace it yourself.

If there is water leaking from the toilet the first thing to do is to turn the water supply off to the toilet. You can then start to try and see where it may be coming from.

Should you do DIY projects in a rented home?

As a tenant you may wonder how much you can and should do in a rented property. There are so many different types of rental agreement that there is no one answer that fits all. Regardless of it you are in a privately rented flat or house, council/ housing association or through an estate agent, then you need to check your tenancy to see what the rules and regulations are. If the property is on a long term let them most landlords will allow you to do a certain amount of decorating as long as you ensure it is done to a high standard and is not too out there. If you did want to paint a wall bright pink or black for example then you may need to agree to paint it back to magnolia before you move out.

Some DIY projects such as basic gardening and making furniture to use in your home will not require permission but if you want to remove built in furniture or replace carpets then you should consult the owners first.

Many people who are in rent property do not wan to spend a lot of money on someone else’s home but if the carpets are ok and the décor is not causing any issues then the landlord is unlikely to contribute towards the costs of redecorating.
