Slow Filling Toilet Cistern and Mains Pressure not Great

Postby AjayK46 » Tue Dec 10, 2019 4:11 pm

My toilet cistern is getting slower and slower to refill. It's never been extremely fast and I know my mains pressure is not brilliant but this is now a problem.

I am thinking of replacing the inlet valve completely with something better but how do I go about it and what would a better type be?

It is a bottom inlet and rather inaccessible. Having turned the supply off what tool would I use to undo the nut on the end of the flexible connector as it won't be accessible with a normal spanner?

The next issue is that the plastic nut that holds the bottom of the inlet valve sealed against the bottom of the tank is slightly offset against the access hole in the bowl so again how do I undo that?

I attach some photos of what is installed to hopefully clarify what I am trying to explain.

Help much appreciated.
