Toilet not Refilling Properly


Postby rflook » Mon Aug 19, 2013 2:29 pm

Hi,

Hoping someone can help me with a small problem. My toilet has been filling slowly for ages - wasn't a problem when it was just me in the house but now its become noticeable.

I have taken off the hose to the bottom of the toilet to check the pressure and it is good (I assume spraying out at a rate of knots is a good thing). However when the valve (see picture below)

is attached the water feebly dribbles out, I mean it take about an hour + to refill the cistern. Can anyone shed any light on what might be the problem?

Many thanks in advance

I guess the valve nozzle is blocked with debris. Strip it down (no need to remove but of course turn the water off) and remove the bit of grit that is blocking it.
