A blocked toilet or a leaking cistern, is not only an inconvenience, it will also lead to unnecessarily high water bills. If the leak is on the inlet side it could cause costly secondary damage to your home as well. Whatever the issue, toilet problems are best left to the experts. Sometimes the problem can be simply fixed by replacing washers or by re-sealing the toilet; however, in some cases the cistern or the entire toilet may need replacing.
If you have a blocked toilet, there are some things you could try:
1. Take a long, flexible tube (often called a plumbing snake) and try inserting it into your toilet, feeding it down the pipe to dislodge any blockage.
2. Plunge the toilet, making sure that you get a good seal. Do this repeatedly with a little water in the bowl to unblock the toilet.
3. Pour a packet of baking soda into the toilet bowl. Now, slowly add a bottle of vinegar and leave for a while. Next, pour a bucket of hot water into the bowl. Hopefully, this will dissolve and clear away your blockage.
