I’m having problems with my toilet and I am hoping that there is some way I can avoid calling the plumber. Of course, the complication is that I’ve never actually tried to fix anything in a toilet and I probably don’t have the necessary tools.
Still, I thought I’d check around and see if this might be an easily fixed problem before I started shelling out money to an expert.
The problem is that after flushing, the fill mechanism isn’t working. There is sort of a trickle of water running down the sides of the intake mechanism. Sometimes if I shut off the valve for a while, the next time I turn it on, the fill works as normal, but then after a flush, it goes back to problem mode.
Any ideas? Is this something I can fix easily at less expense than a plumber?
Thanks for any suggestions or help
