When we consider the bathroom, there are many things that can go wrong given the number of plumbing pipes and other essential fittings. A strange but not uncommon problem householders face is where a toilet keeps flushing. 

Below, we look at some of the problems that cause a toilet to keep flushing.


A blockage can occur due to heavy objects or materials being flushed down the drain. Home with children might find that a toy has found its way into the toilet in error. Paper toilets, sanitary products, or other hard to flush objects cause overflowing drains that may clog pipes and obstruct drains. Everything that goes into your drain, including tissues, wipes, and even hair, can build up and create a blockage. The best way to remove a serious blockage is with a toilet snake. If you suspect that there may be a plumbing blockage in your home, call us today to book a plumber.

Problem With Toilet Flush Valve Or Flush Valve Seal:

A damaged flush valve seal is the most common cause of a constantly flushing toilet. The seal is the plug holding the water in the cistern after a toilet is flushed. If it doesn’t work properly, the toilet will keep flushing. Lift the lid off the toilet cistern to inspect the flush valve for any cracks or decay. If you don’t see any cracks but observe that water is running through the valve, the other way to check this is by pouring some food colouring dye into the cistern. Then, check if it appears in the bowl. If this is the case, then the flush valve will need to be replaced.
