We can also provide brand new full toilet cisterns and systems, as well as remove your old cistern. So if you have a new one in mind, just ask your plumber.

Concealed Cisterns

Concealed cisterns provide an alternative to contemporary cistern design by using space-saving solutions. They sit behind the wall, providing more usable wall space in your bathroom and an aesthetically better-looking toilet.

The great thing about concealed cisterns is that they are relatively maintenance-free, so there is no need to fear having your wall ripped apart when you encounter a problem. The flush button actually acts as a gateway to install and service parts of the concealed cistern.

Our plumbers are fully qualified and up to date with the latest concealed cistern trends. Contact us today to find out more.

Emergency Cistern Plumber

Imagine you’ve just pressed the button to flush the toilet only for no water to be released from the tank. There is something terribly wrong with your cistern and we’d wager to say you don’t want to leave this mess unattended for long.

FAQ – Answers to All Your Commonly Asked Cistern Questions

If you've got a question about toilet cisterns and cistern plumbing, we've got the answer.

Cisterns have a lot of moving parts that can go wrong and prevent a cistern from filling up. A broken fill valve will impair the flow of water back into the cistern when you press the flush button. A prolonged hissing sound indicates that the cistern isn’t filling efficiently – or perhaps not at all. It could also be the float at the top of the cistern that sits too low and tells your cistern to stop filling too soon.
Is water continually trickling into the bowl? It’s the opposite of the problem of the cistern not filling up and means that the cistern isn’t turning itself off when full and the constant overflow goes into the bowl. Sometimes the cistern itself springs a leak, often through a damaged valve or aged seal.
Yes and no. You can replace just the cistern, although ideally, we recommend a full toilet suite replacement. Cisterns are often paired to an exact toilet model, holding the right amount of water to flush at the correct angle for the bowl. If the cistern and toilet area mismatch, you’ll encounter problems with poor flushing that leaves solids in the toilet bowl.
