Open Question

When I flush the toilet (B&Q, Porto) it refills very slowly over a long period of time. There is a fine spray inside when filling up. Could there be a blockage in the cistern.

Cistern problem. Slow fill up of cistern after flush. The fill appears as a fine spray rather than a gushing fill.

SOURCE: toilet trouble

Based on the phrasing of your question, I'm thinking that the bad noise happens for the first time when the valve opens to start filling (this happens when you first let water into the bowl) and then again when the valve closes (when the cistern is full). Valves sometimes have a high-pitched squealing noise when it takes a long time to open or close this valve. Sometimes, you can make it go away by turning the screw to adjust the height that the ball/float has to be in order to shut off the water (the more horizontal, the longer it takes to shut off the flow, and the longer the noise continues). Sometimes, this is just caused by an aging mechanism and it turns out to be quicker and easier to just replace that part of the toilet (they make replacement kits that are very inexpensive and easy to install).

Did you replace the flush valve or the flapper?

There must either be a problem with the seal between the two surfaces of the flapper and flush valve or the flapper is being prevented by the flush system to returning to make a seal against the flush valve after the water completes draining during the flush cycle or more likely water is draining through the overflow tube.

Make sure the sealing surfaces are clean and not damaged.

Make sure the flapper is not being interfered with and is able to return to the closed position to make a complete seal against the flush valve.

Check adjustment of the water fill level to make sure the water is not filling above the water overflow. If the inlet valve does not shut-off when the level is adjusted to the proper level the water inlet valve may need replacing.

SOURCE: Everytime you flush the toilet,

one of 2 problems may be present, first may be the floating ball, it may not be getting back to the correct position and there fore cut the water supply off, as it should, you can check to see if this is the problem by lifting the arm up a bit and see if the water stops flowing, if it does then to fix this i bent the alloy arm that was holding the floater a little more in the down ward position, if not the problem the the rubber seal at the bottom is most likely not sealing properly, may just need a wipe around, a bit of a tight squeeze, turn the water off first, have a go

SOURCE: dual flush toilet fills slowly. The fill valve is pushing water cistern seems ok. The fill hose shoots water down overflow tube this is the design. If hose placed tank it fills no problem.

check /replace the small rubber washer at the end of the fill tube as they tend to grow with age and reduce the flow of water past the inlet

Refill tube constantly detaches from fill valve


A longer piece of tubing may solve the problem. Put the extra down the overflow tube so it won't pop out. Hope this helps.

Toilet tank fills slowly


My sister has a two year old Jacuzzi toilet that worked fine until a few months ago. Then it started to take 10 minutes to shut off after each flush. I lifted the tank cover and immediately saw the problem; at least 90% of the refill water was going into the refill pipe instead of the tank. Upon examination I discovered that the plastic part that holds the flexible refill tube to the vertical refill pipe was broken. This part not only holds the refill tube in place, it also has a small orifice at the end to restrict the flow into the pipe. The part was broken in such a way as to let nearly all the water go into the refill pipe instead of the tank, hence it would run for 10 minutes after the toilet bowl was full and waste all that water. I found a small coarse thread stainless steel screw that fit into the plastic attachment piece to help plug the orifice and cut down the amount of water going to the refill pipe. Now the toilet flushes and refills in less than 2 minutes. I'm in the process of trying to find a replacement for that part but so far no luck.

After flushing, water level in bowl fills and then slowly drops.


Check to be sure small tube is flowing inside the ovefow tube. This is the water that flushes the rim holes, and refills the bowl. If you don't have flow clean or replace the float valve.

I have a toto toilet that doesn't start to refill until a couple of minutes after I flush. Any ideas. Thanks.


Several ideas. Start to fill? Have you looked inside the tank to see what's going on? If it just filling very slowly, then you most likely have some calcuim build up inside your flush valve blocking some flow, if this is the case you will have to clean the flush valve. If your flush valve is staying up and the toilet is "running" unitil the float drops. The float (either the arm ballcock style, or newer fluidmaster) is rubbing on either the flush lever or side of the tank, and taking longer to drop to let the water start flowing. I

My dual flush toilet fills up slowly how do i fix


Lift the tank lid off, place it somewhere safe for a moment, and look at what happens: If you're talking about jiggling the handle to get the tank to start to fill with water, then it sounds like the chain or rope is out of adjustment. It can't be TOO TIGHT or the water will leak past your flapper (will cause your dripping noise, tank water level will leak down, causing constant refills), and it cant be TOO LOOSE or the toilet won't flush correctly. Since you didn't mention trouble flushing the toilet, I think that it may be a little too TIGHT. When you jiggle the flush lever-it is supposed to pull a chain or cable to open the flapper at the bottom of the tank. Flush the tank and watch what happens-all the way through to refilling the tank with water and shutting off the water refill valve-Does the flapper get stuck on the chain or something? It is supposed to fall back down to allow the tank to refill after flushing out your toilet. Does the chain look very loose? The dripping sound you described indicates that the flapper is not sealing 100%. The flapper is very easy to replace, you just have to get the adjustment set for when you flush the toilet how sensitive you need it. You amy have to play with it a little bit before you get the adjustment correct.

Hope this helps!

Toilet will not flush


It sound like you have debris caught in the fill valve. Remove the top where the washer is and put your hand over it and slowly turn the water on to flush the fill valve. Replace the washer with a new one and then replace the top.

If you have the old ball and **** style, replaceing the diaphram is harder so I would recommend replacing it with a fluidmaster fill valve. Hope this helps.
