toilet cistern wont flush

Postby Lindsay_Porter » Fri May 09, 2008 9:43 pm


My toilet decided that it would stop flushing tonight.. typical..

The valve wont let the cistern fill even if I play with the float, and the valve is dripping too.

Probably the valve is split or something, I'm a practical gal but never played with toilets before!! Could someone give me some advice on fixing it please :-)

Many thanks

Simply Build It

It could be broken, it is possible that some debris has clogged the valve assembly. It can be dismantled to ascertain the problem. Chances are it can be fixed by cleaning.
