Having rust in your toilet bowl can be an irritating problem, especially when we all lead busy lives that don’t always enable us to look after the smaller issues in our homes. Maintaining cleanliness and zero to no rust in the toilet and bathroom requires an acid-based cleaner. Some easy reach solutions usually lean towards chlorine bleach to remove rust stains, without realizing it can make the problem worse. This method can cause staining in the toilet bowl and create an even bigger problem. Make sure to call our team at Queensland Coastal Plumbing to figure how we can assist you further!
It can be common for rust to form on porcelain toilet bowls and on most occasions, it’s not caused by how many times the toilet is used, but instead by the water system and the concentration of minerals in sewage water. When iron and oxygen mix it causes an adverse chemical reaction that causes rust. If there is too much iron in the water when exposed to oxygen particles, the chemical reaction of rust will appear.
By taking the appropriate steps, you can help keep your toilets and washbasins stain-free by reducing the amount of iron present and, consequently, the deposits on their surfaces. If you have an older home, the iron may be coming from old pipes that unfortunately do deteriorate after many years.
