Thermostatic shower runs hot and then cold If your thermostatic shower keeps going from hot to cold there’s only one way to resolve this issue. It’s very annoying to get into the shower in the morning this time of year only for the Shower to go straight from hot to cold. This usually happens the minute you put shower gel into your hair. There’s no need disassembling the Mixer Valve and looking into the filters for dirt, 9 out of 10 this is not the cause. Please check your boiler to see if the Hot water is warming up enough, simple way of doing this is running your hot tap in the kitchen to see if it’s getting hot. If it is then it’s not your boiler. The shower could get cold if you have a heat only boiler with a water tank in the airing cupboard or loft and a few people in the household had showers before you. But majorly intermittent hot and cold shower is caused by a thermostatic mixing valve. Installing a new mixing valve in the shower can reduce or eliminate the temperature fluctuations. Thermostatic mixing valves automatically balance the amount of hot and cold water being mixed, which will prevent drastic fluctuations in shower temperature. But you do not have to as this can be expensive, the best way and value for money method is changing the Diverter Cartridge and this will be resolved for you. Whether you have a Bristan shower, Ideal Standard Shower, Armitage Shanks, Grohe, Porcelanosa, Noken Shower you can find the Thermostatic Cartridges/Diverters and Mixer Valve spares here, if in doubt about the correct replacement

Saturday, December 2, 2017 10:27:43 AM Europe/London

How to fix a loose toilet seat

How hard is it to tighten a loose/wobbly Toilet Seat? Or should I change my Toilet Seat because the fittings have come loose?? The answer to that question is not always. The question is, do you sure you need a new toilet seat? Can you fix the one you have? Please continue reading and for further information please ring us on 01482291992 or email with all your questions. Well maybe I should reframe the question to ‘’How to Stop the Toilet Seat from Shifting Sideways’’ or ‘’Loose toilet - how to fix a rocking toilet bowl or seat’’ or ‘’Adjusting a Loose Toilet Seat’’ no matter how you frame the question it is the same solution (Fix).


What Causes a Wobbly Toilet Seat/Loose Toilet Seat?

A loose toilet seat is a common problem caused by the constant opening, closing, and sitting the Toilet which eventually loosens the bolts securing the seat to the Toilet Pan. Household detergents which contain bleach can also cause this as they damaged the Hinges by making them rusty and then break off. I know you are thinking what the Hell do I use in Cleaning the Toilet if not bleach?? Is ok to clean the ceramic with bleach but you only need warm soapy water for the Hinges and seat itself. Finally Slamming of the Toilet seat can also cause a wobbly seat.

Sitting down to do your business in the bathroom, you don’t usually expect your toilet seat to be loose and rock back and forth. Fortunately, a rocking toilet seat isn’t going to cause you much personal harm but it is embarrassing. A loose, wobbly toilet seat is still something you should fix since it can eventually damage your Toilet Pan and cause you more financially.

About 85% of us haven’t ever removed a loose toilet before or even have a clue how it’s done. So, fixing a rocking toilet by say, replacing or repairing a broken toilet may seem daunting.

Know the Features and Mechanism of Push Button Toilets

Thursday, May 18, 2017 12:22:40 PM Europe/London

There are several names such as WC, water closet, lavatory, John, loo and crapper for the sanitary fixture called toilet that you use in private and public places. It is certainly not the most exciting of inventions, but you simply can’t live without it. It is found that 40% of the world’s population don’t have access to this basic sanitary fixture. On the contrary, people in Japan have automatically working toilets that use electricity to do everything from playing music and opening the toilet lid cover to closing it for the user. Most of today’s toilets are more moderate than them, but include pretty inventive mechanism, no matter whether they are push button toilets or dual flush toilets. Let’s find out the features and mechanism of push button toilets.

Features of Push Button Toilets

In these toilets, you need to press on the push button to ensure that all waste is gone. Push button toilets have the luxury of push button or flush which give you a smart and easy toilet option. In comparison to more than 2 billion people all across the world who don’t have this exclusive luxury for sanitation, your push button toilets are capable to wash out the waste from the toilet basin with as little pressure as a quick press on a button. Consisting of the push button toilet valve, tank, toilet seat and plastic toilet seat hinges, these toilets can quickly dispose of waste and flow it down a long vertical pipe while using considerable amount water in the flushing process. They can be seen to be installed everywhere starting from the developed to the wealthiest countries in the world, where leading a modern and hassle-free life is a major focus. Don’t you feel better if your toilet runs water in the basin with a button push and washes out waste without the tension of pouring water into it on your? This is the most beneficial feature of push button ones in use these days.

Operating Mechanism of Push Button Toilets

Initially, push button or flush toilet looks very simple. Apart from an Ideal Standard or Shires toilet seat, it has a long pipe for carrying waste down through the floor and a cistern working to flush water into the basin especially when someone presses or pushes the button. Most of the push button toilets are mechanical in nature whose cistern operates to flow water through the toilet with gravitational force and cleaning and sanitizing the basin for future use but not without the push of the button. They are absolutely mechanical as they keep flushing and refilling the cistern using the internal levers.

There is a lot more involved in the operation of push button toilets. When you push the button, the cistern flushes as well as gets automatically refilled by the faucet present on the side which continues till the cistern gets filled up without causing water overflow. The flushed out water keeps pouring through the swirl holes in the bowl rim and a siphon jet hole present in the bottom area of the toilet. The sophisticated technology of these holes leaves the toilet with little water in the bottom after every push button. They never take out water completely. Rather, they keep some water trapped in the curved (S-trap or S-bend) pipe fitted at its base. With this much of water, it becomes possible to effectively close off the waste disposal pipe under it, preventing bad odour or germs from coming up and spreading across your bathroom.

All the exclusive details regarding the features and mechanism of a push button toilet may add to your interest of purchasing it from any reliable online store in the UK. If you want to deal with an experienced and affordable online supplier, consider ordering push buttons toilets with Mytoiletspareparts and enjoying free of cost delivery throughout the country!
