Toilet bowl issue

With most families being dual-income-with-kids, outsourcing home cleaning and home economics to domestic helpers is almost a way of life for Singaporeans. Come in and discuss issues pertaining to maids and home management.

Toilet bowl issue

Postby KoalaMummy » Tue Nov 23, 2010 12:47 pm

Hi, my home sitting toilet bowl's flush (the holder to push down to flush) is spoiling. Does anyone have any contact to either change the holder or change the whole toilet bowl? (mine is the old type, >20yrs kind). Any recommendations would be welcome. thanks.

To do it DIY, first turn off the water supply. Empty the water cistern, then study the existing mechanism. Or if can, dismantle everything n bring to a DIY shop (I will recommend those neighbourhood shops, not the ones in the shopping mall run by youngsters). Then buy a new set and assemble based on how you dismantle the old set. If can, get someone to record the dismantling process. All the best on the DIY.
