If you need your toilet repaired contact 24 Hour Plumber on (01) 531 2220. One common problem involves your toilet not refilling after flush.

Being called out to jobs where toilets aren’t performing as they should is a daily occurrence for plumbers everywhere.  Though toilets are one of the reliable stalwarts of the plumbing world, there are a number of things that can go wrong.

Toilets making odd noises, not flushing, leaking, overflowing, broken seats and handles, overfilling, or not refilling are just some possible issues. 

When a toilet stops refilling after a flush it could be a problem with the shut-off valve. A shut off valve is the mechanism that controls the water flows after activation. In the house plumbing system, various shutoff valves are present along the water pipes allowing us to turn the pipes off.

If your toilet doesn’t fill after flushing, the first thing you must check is if the shutoff valve is open or closed. Usually located behind the toilet, the shut-off valve can sit for years without ever being closed. If it does need to be opened, turn it counterclockwise. 

Not the shut-off valve? Next, we need to consider if debris has built up in the cistern tank. Over time, deposits of residues and minerals from the water flow can create unhelpful problems in toilets. One such problem is that this debris can clog valves in the cistern. This then prevents the toilet refilling after a flush.
