SOURCE: Downstairs toilet won't stop filling, upstairs toilet won't fill

for the upstairs if the valve is fully on there is not much you can do other than replace water service to the house or heaven forbid repipe.Valves usually don't restrict fill volume.But you can take the supply loose from the tank and stick it in a bucket turn the valve on and check the flow.this should narrow it down.Down stairs repair or replace flush valve

SOURCE: the water tank only on

There is probably some trash in the screen in the fill valve. You can try taking the valve apart and cleaning the internals, or you could just install a new fill valve. The part costs less than $10.

SOURCE: 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.

if the water keeps flowing then try replacing the flapper if it still flows then the fill tube gasket or tank to bowl gasket need to be replaced.

If you remove the fill valve assembly by undoing the plastic nut on the bottom, there is a filter screen inside there (it doesn't really look like a filter from the bottom but it is). To remove the filter, gently blow into the top line where the hose connects and the filter will pop out (quickly, so keep an eye on it). It has a very small mesh and you can scrub it clean with an old tooth brush or air wand. Reinstall and A-OK. During installation, debris may have plugged this filter screen.

Can low water pressure cause my toilet cisterns to keep running


NO
persistent running is problem valve washers either in the water level control or the flush washer under the press buttons
low pressure will take a longer time to fill but when the level is attained the water will stop flowing in

Why my uberhaus dual flush toilet does not flush properly


Perhaps it is taking a long time to fill the cistern, take top off and see if it's filling after flushing, if it's slow and pressure is ok it is likely to need a new diaphragm in the filling valve.

There could be partial blockage of the water supply line causing a slow fill.

Toilet takes a long time to fill up after flushing


Perhaps the shut off valve is not fully open, or constricted. Try opening and closing the shut off valve to loosen any sediment. Otherwise, replace shut off valve.

The toilet takes a long time to refill after a flush would there be a certain part that is plugged or wore out ?


Is the flapper valve slow to return to the closed postion allowing water to flow through the flush valve? Make sure the toilet flapper is moving freely and is sealing properly against the flush valve. If there is no lengthy or continual water flow in to the toilet bowl then this is not the problem.

Is the water valve on the water fill line to the toilet tank fully open? This may seem silly but it could be this simple.

Check to make sure your fill valve is opening fully. If you have an older toilet there may be some deposits that need to be cleaned way to allow free movement.

If toilet does eventually fill to the desired level, there is no leakage, water valve on fill line is fully open and fill valve is opening fully then recommend you shut off water supply, drain toilet and disconnect water fill line from the water valuve and toilet tanke to make sure there is not a blockage. If the water line and connections are clear you may need to remove the fill pipe in the tank and check for blockage. If this is very old, conisdering the cost and effort, it may be simpler to replace at this time rather than trying to extend the life.

Last toilet flush did not take. (It was a bowel movement, but not excessive toilet paper.) Bowl fills, water does not go down. I have plunged entire bowl filled at high level twice. It feels like air...

if the plunging does not work, you will need to have a rotor-Rutter , their is a clog down the line

Takes a long time to fill tank


You need to replace the gasket in the fill valve if it is a problem that was not there when it was new. If it is new? Check the water flow from the supply line to the toilet. Turn of the water to the toilet, remove water line from toilet, run water into a bucket to check flow. @ the bottom of the fill valve where the water connects, on the inside there may be a screen that in plugged

I have a toto toilet. After flushing it is taking a very long time to fill up.


Make sure that the fill valve doesn't have debris caught inside near the valve needle. Also the tube that attaches onto the flush valve can become clogged near the fill valve as well. Remove the hose and then take a needle and try and clear the outlet. Blow through the tube to insure that it's not blocked as well.
