    no not yet, may be a case of replacing the toilet but trying to keep time on site & cost down as much as possible.

    current cistern is 50cm width x 30cm high & 18cm depth

    Yea that's the one normally uses a back to wall pan

    Is the plastic bit leaking or the cistern ?

    its the cistern, it has hairline crack in it. it didn't like being disturbed when i put in the new syphon, but obviously the customer is saying it wasn't leaking before i replaced syphon.

    hence why i don't want to pay out for £200 cistern on a job that was about £100 with materials

    Any cistern that has bolt holes will fit so just go down to your locals and find something similar and aslong cus is happy your golden

    If I see one of them I replace the whole toilet

    You sure it's not leaking from the plastic adapter wouldn't be the first time I've seen them leaking from there
