Help please!! Novice re-assembling toilet cistern??

Postby MichelleRhos1234 » Sun Sep 24, 2017 2:30 pm

Hi All,

Some help/advice needed please!!

I've just taken my cistern apart because it was taking over 10 mins to fill. I've sorted this now but when I was putting it back together a small plastic piece fell out and I now don't know where it goes to re-insert?? The toilet is now filling none stop - any advice would be much appreciated for what this piece is and where it fits!! I've attached a picture and the plastic piece and the cistern type to help.

Many thanks for any suggestions... I can't really afford a plumber at the moment.
