L B White - Common Toilet Repairs
Blocked Toilets: Blocked toilets are one of the most common call-outs we receive. These can occur for various reasons, and it's usually best to call in a professional plumber to identify and fix the issue from the get-go. Whether your toilet bowl is emptying slower than usual or there's a complete blockage, our team is well-equipped to get your system back up and running in no time.
Leaking Toilets: A leaking toilet might initially seem like a small problem, but if ignored, it can quickly escalate into a costly and inconvenient issue. Leaks often occur in the cistern, causing water to continuously flow into the pan, onto the floor, or from the waste pipe. These leaks can lead to increased water bills, unpleasant odours, and even water damage to your flooring.
Toilet Doesn’t Flush: Understandably, a toilet that doesn't flush is a significant problem. Thankfully, with the right tools and materials at hand, our team can often resolve this issue quickly and efficiently. Many non-flushing toilet problems can be sorted without complication, ensuring you have a fully functional toilet as soon as possible.

Whether you're seeking a luxury addition to elevate your bathroom or need a cost-effective replacement, we've got you covered. A toilet is a critical part of your bathroom, and it's essential to ensure its installation is handled by a licensed professional.
DLM Wallace Lead Sheet / Acrylead
DLM Wallace Lead Sheet & Acrylead consist of virgin lead of at least 99.8% purity, machine cast in to sheet form of various dimension and thickness. Acrylead has a factory baked acrylic primer coating which inhibits the contact of water with the lead and its oxides, greatly reducing lead run-off which can cause staining on surrounding roof materials such as tiles. Lead Sheet & Acrylead are soft and malleable, making them a versatile flashing material. They offer strong resistance to corrosion and UV degradation, offering unparalleled longevity of service.

and wall cladding systems. They are commonly used for flashing concrete, clay and slate tile roofs, for buildings described in Table 1 of NZS 3604:2011, and NASH Standard Part 2: May 2019- 1.3.1.
