If the water isn’t working in the entire home, then it’s a problem with the water supply in general, but if it’s just not reaching your bathroom, then there could be a potential blockage or leak in the plumbing system.
1. To Adjust your float ball and get it functioning properly again, first turn off the water supply on the shut off valve.2. Hold the lever of your toilet, and then hold it for long enough so that most of the water escapes.3. Remove the lid of the tank and set it aside carefully, then look inside to find your float ball or cup.
4. If you have a float cup contained inside, then turn the long plastic screw that is connected to the float in a clockwise direction. Use a screwdriver to do this.5. If you have a ball inside instead, then look for a screw that connects the fill valve to the float arm. Turn this screw in a clockwise direction.
6. Like we mentioned before, the water should be about ½ inches below the overfill tube, so adjust it slowly and carefully until it reaches this height. After this, simply place your toilet tank cover back on.
This could get caught beneath the valve, and prevent it from being sealed efficiently. The leaking flapper could also simply be caused by its becoming old and worn out. They can potentially corrode and harden, causing them to be completely non functional.
1. The first thing that you need to do when replacing the flapper is to turn off the water valve and flush your toilet.2. Remove the lift chain from where it is situated over the handle (Check out this Step-By-Step Guide For Replacing A Toilet Handle).
