Dripping taps? Leaking toilet?

Or maybe you'd just like to replace those old, dull looking fixtures. Whatever the problem may be, I will have a solution for you!

Taps

I can either fully service your existing taps, to make them feel and operate like the day they were installed. Or you may like to choose from the range of quality tapware that I always carry with me.

I stock a range of different kitchen, bathroom and laundry tapware, (shown below) all of which are high quality and come with great warranties.

The range of tapware that I use and recommend is RAM, which is designed and manufactured in Australia and carries an industry leading 15 year warranty, which includes a full 5 years on parts and labour with an additional 10 years parts only warranty. Also, if you choose me to supply your new tapware, I will deal with any warranty issues on your behalf.

Whether you prefer the classic type of tapware, the modern look and feel of a flick mixer, or the easy operation of taps with ceramic disc cartridges, I can supply and install something you'll love.

If you have a certain type of tapware, but would like to change styles, that's usually not a problem. For example, if you currently have the standard type of tapware (hot and cold taps and a spout) on top of your vanity basin or kitchen sink, I can install a new flick mixer and cap off the remaining two holes with stylish chrome or porcelain blanks.

Or maybe you would prefer to keep your current style of tapware, but would just like something that's a bit easier to turn on and off. In this case, I could install ceramic disc taps with either lever or cross handles.

Flick mixers and ceramic disc taps are also very good in situations when turning taps on and off can present a problem, such as for people with arthritis.

Toilet Suites

If you are looking at having a new toilet suite installed, there a number of important factors which will decide the style and model of toilet suite that is suitable for your situation.

If you would like to purchase the toilet suite yourself, please consider these factors carefully, as you may find that the toilet suite you have chosen will be very costly to install, due to the extra work involved in adjusting water and/or waste pipes.

I am able to supply a range of high quality toilet suites, each carefully chosen to be suitable for your particular situation. Also, by choosing me to supply the suite, you will have the peace of mind that I will deal with any warranty issues on your behalf.

If you would still like to supply the suite yourself, please be aware of the following factors before you start shopping:

Waste outlet type

S trap (through the floor), P trap (through the rear wall) or Skew trap (through the side wall).

Waste pipe set-out

Distance the existing waste pipe is situated from either the rear wall or the floor. (Depending on waste outlet type)

Water supply set-out

Distance the existing water supply is situated from the walls, floor and waste pipe.

Bottom inlet - The water supply pipe comes from the floor or the lower wall and the water supply pipe is exposed.

Back inlet - The water supply pipe is located high on the rear wall and comes in through the back of the cistern.

Types of toilet suites

Connector

The cistern can be either plastic or china with a plastic flush pipe being used to connect the cistern to the pan, which is then covered by a plastic bridging piece.

Connector suites are the cheapest type to purchase and can usually be retrofitted to nearly any existing 'S' or 'P' trap installation with little extra work involved.

Close Coupled

The cistern is always china and is connected (bolted) directly to the pan without the use of a flush pipe.

Most close coupled suites come with an option for either a bottom or back inlet water supply and can usually be retrofitted to any existing 'P' trap installation, but some models have a very limited set out range for 'S' trap installations.

Wall Faced

The cistern is connected the same way as a close coupled suite, but the rear of the pan sits flush against the rear wall.

Wall faced suites are usually the most expensive type and will give the best finish, but some do not come with the option for a bottom inlet water supply.

Most wall faced suites have a wide set out range, but they are not always suitable to be retrofitted to an existing installation, usually due to the placement of the water supply pipe.

Skirting boards and tiles may also need to be cut to shape to allow the suite to fit flush against the rear wall.
