    Hello!
    Just wondering if any of you have come across Victoria Plum toilets where the china is actually porous?
    We have a toilet that leaks through the inlet channel for the flush water of the pan!
    Am now in a battle with them as I believe the toilet was not fit for purpose.
    Anyone else ever come across this issue?
    Many thanks
    Carl

    Everybody on here knows my thoughts on that lot , it is more than possible its a faulty one.

    A lot of cheap toilets have the same problem , not saying yours is of course

    Thanks - you are spot on I think. My mistake to go with VP. Will be sourcing a more reputable replacement.

    At least the spigot looks round and not like an egg and the inside isn`t looking roughcast and unfinished
    Something else to look for Carl when buying the next one.

    Seen this happen with B&Poo (sorry B&Q) toilets before. We don't fit them either now!

    Like others have said, pop down to your local plumbers merchant. Some of them are even friendly :) They don't sell rubbish as they know us plumbers won't tolerate that :)

    Thanks all - Plumbers Merchants on Monday! I've had a look at the reviews on Victoria Plum and it's unbelievably bad - my mistake but ho hum.

    Cheers

    I had a customer bought a toilet from Next. I thought they sold clothes :confused:
    Hair line crack inside. Admittedly they changed it very quickly. But it must have weighed as much as 2 bags of sugar :).

    Customers like what they see, but don't really know what there buying.

    Victoria plum are fully aware they sell rubbish as their operation is based around writing off 10% of sales per year. Just email them the pics and they'll send you a replacement.
