This regular maintenance is done through regular inspection where every defect is noted and rectified immediately. A plumber should be invited from time to time to conduct inspections as well as rectify the small defects.

Inspections however do not prevent the toilet from some problems such as leakages and clogging especially in older homes. These problems can be caused by external problems such as high water pressures which lead to faucets dripping which can cause wastage of water.
