Replace Ceramic Cistern System Inards


Postby christatedavies » Tue Jan 03, 2017 7:42 pm

Hello

I have a ceramic cistern with a plastic "contraption" inside. This is all the refil regulation, etc. The ceramic cistern is sat on the toilet. I cannot replace it without replacing the entire toilet. The cistern has no internal container. Its just full of water.

I have a dripping leak and I suspect the plastic contraption has a perished washer.

My question is, can you buy replacement "inards" for these cisterns? And if so, are there a standardised size, etc?

I've fitted an internal cistern upstairs so have no issue doing this. But I want to be sure before I turn off the water and dismantle it!

Thanks for any advice. I can post a photo later if it helps.

Here is the image. So I "think" the refiller bit has a leak. But I just need to know if I can easily replace the whole lot... I have assumed I will need to remove it all and then measure the washers etc so I can buy the correct fitting, but want some assurance before I go "gung ho" on it...
