    He said he doesn't know how to fix it and has no time. I don't know what he has done. Before it wouldn't flush and I had to constantly push on the handle several times to get it to flush. That problem has been fixed but now we're left with the leak from the pipe outside. The toilet and whole bathroom suite are extremely old but my Mam doesn't want to change it :mad:

    Neighbour? If all goes to plan we are talking small flatblade screwdriver and turn the screw in a couple of turns - 5 minutes. Oh and a towel to dry hands.

    I'll have to raid my Mam's toolbox! If that doesn't work and I need a new washer and/or valve, will it be expensive?

    Look at the state of it! 1960's at least!

    That ain't a 1960s bathroom suite!
    I used to fit same as that one in various horrible colours in the 1980s.
    Looks all in good condition and could last many more years. Probably more reliable than a brand new suite and the poor functioning and malfunctioning of all this push button rubbish.

    RPM, - I agree, that is a really good valve! Takes a while to get used to installing them, I think the threaded arm can be easily fitted incorrectly, but once you know then it is a decent valve to use.
