Hot water In WC

I have just had a bathroom fitted as well as a new boiler, both by separate tradesmen. I have now found that my WC is filling with hot water when the boiler is on, both tradesmen say they have done nothing to cause this. Do you have any advice on what the likely cause is how how simple it may be to resolve? Thanks

Sounds like they have got the hot and cold pipes crossed, easy fix to a good tradesman, assuming one can get access to the pipes

The hot and cold water pipes has been crossed. Hence the hot is going to the toilets instead of the cold. Any plumber or handyman should be able to resolved this easily.

The only reason I can think this is happening is that the plumbers have got the pipework mixed up and installed the wrong pipe to your toilet, basically the have teed into the hot pipe instead of the cold pipe

I am a project manager. Toilet is connected to hot water pipe. Was there a problem with your old toilet? Did the bathroom fitter do new pipework? Definately wrong pipework. Get the bathroom guy back. The problem is if floor walls already tiled will have to come up to remedy the situation.

that the cold feed pipe to your toilet has been crossed with the hot water feed
just a case of switching them around and confirming its a cold feed supply to your toilet...

The hot water feed pipe has been connected to the toilet inlet filler value. Access will need to be gained under floorboards/wall to connect cold water feed to toilet.
