this post really belongs in the plumbing thread.

you can fit a pressure reducer to the incoming main if necessary. your toilet ought to be able to cope with the pressure, you may have a low pressure valve fitted on it. consider changing for a high pressure with a flow restrictor - most new cistern fillers come already fitted with these and usually require converting to low pressure rather than the other way round.

in the interim the simplest solution is to turn down the pressure by partially closing the stop cock on your incoming main, close it off completely then open again in quarter-turn increments until you have achieved the desired rate of flow.

It best to contact Phoenix plumbing contractor [URL=] Phoenix plumbing contractor [/URL] and ask to book an appointment for their service team, the best option and hopefully a quick repair.
