Questions to ask

Is there an isolating valve? If not does the customer know where the main stop cock is? Is there a roof tank (in older properties toilets were often fed from the roof tank). Make sure the cistern is accessible. In some modern properties they are boxed in and/or tiled in which case the main task is getting access!


Repairing leaks on the inflow pipe may mean either tightening or replacing joints/couplings to the ball valve or replacing the ball valve as described elsewhere.

eaks on the outflow pipe (that's the smelly end) are more often than not caused by deteriorating seals and can mean the entire toilet needs to come out. Typically this involves disconnecting the water supply, overflow and outflow connections and getting those rusty old screws out which hold the bowl down!
