If you need your toilet repaired contact 24 Hour Plumber on (01) 531 2220. Toilet fill valve problems are one of the most frequent issues we encounter when repairing toilets.
The fill valve is one of the hidden toilet parts housed within the cistern tank. As a homeowner, you will rarely see or know about this valve. Unless it has a problem. When functioning correctly, the fill valve controls the water flow in the toilet cistern.
Let’s have a look at the main problems you may face with toilet fill valve problems:
Any part of the toilet cistern can become congested with debris. Especially if you live in a hard water area. Congestion causes a number of issues like slow water flow into and out of the cistern, ill-functioning valves and often prevents toilets from flushing.
Eventually, the problem will stop the tank filling at all. When the toilet cistern fills slowly, there’s a chance that it will not fill completely between flushes. The main symptom of this is a weak flush or no flush at all.
The best way to check if your toilet tank fill valve is congested is to contact an experienced plumber. The plumber will clean the hard water scale and debris from the fill valve. If that doesn’t work then it might be time for a new fill valve entirely.
Other Symptoms Of A Fill Valve Problem Include:
- water continues to run after the flush cycle is finished
- Screeching sounds when you flush the toilet
