    for a plumber?
    Or do people try to fix this themselves?
    M toilet won't flush, it just suddenly stopped, and I've been looking at plumbers online but the prices for "Flushing/scaling" (which I assume concerns toilets) is listed "per meter" :confused:
    Crap situation...and the plumbers in the area appear to be expensive.
    I'm renting and I didn't damage the toilet or anything. Do I still have to pay?

    Quite literally :cool:

    Sorry.

    I'm pretty sure I'm meant to get my landlord to sort things like that out, and I think they pay for it too. If you want a serious answer.

    Call one of them and he will be able to give you a quote, then double that quote and you have the price you'll pay.

    Have a look in the cistern first - Just to check if its something that you could fix quite easily.

    Give your landlord a bell - s/he'll probably come round and take a look to see if it can be easily fixed. If the landlord can't fix it, s/he'll probably call in a plumber. The landlord probably knows a plumber that usually does work for your landlord - mates-rates and all that.

    Your landlord should cover the cost, but check to make sure s/he will, and have a look at your contract to see what that says about maintenance.

    The guy who owns the apartment lives abroad and I'm never in contact with him (haven't even got the details). The one I've spoken to is the one who set me up with the apartment, and he's very busy. Then there's the "Gardien" - a guy in the building, but he is honestly not very helpful nor friendly, I tried knocking on his door a few days ago and he was away so I put a note on his door asking for help and he has ignored it
    I kind of want to just call a plumber.

    EDIT: Neg rep for the first post? Seriously? ...
