Many of us have faced such a problem as a breakdown of the toilet tank drain. Agree, not a very pleasant situation, today I will tell you how to correct this situation with my own hands.
There are several types of breakdown tank, most often they happen in the form of water leaks into the toilet bowl, or even worse, on the floor of the toilet room. It also happens that the drain tank is not filled with water at all, or vice versa, the water is constantly being recruited into the tank.
First of all, you need to understand the principle of the tank.
The constant supply of water to the reservoir can be caused by several reasons:
damage to the float itself
flaw in the float valve
If the cause is related to the skewing of the float, then it just needs to be carefully aligned and returned to the place, if the float or valve itself has become unusable, then, there is no way to do without replacement.
If your tap is open and no water enters the tank, you should check that the float adjustment is not broken, if the float is normal, and the water does not run into the reservoir, check the integrity of the hose.
Well, the most common failure, the tank does not hold water, and it constantly flows into the bowl of the toilet. To eliminate this breakdown, you will have to tinker with a little, namely, if the tank is compact, you need to drain the water from the tank, take out the siphon unit, detaching the hook from the upper rod of the siphon. The lifting plate and the stem slide along the guides. Replace the damaged diaphragm on the valve with a new one. Collect the siphon and install it, observing the reverse order. If the plastic tank hanging off from the toilet, you need to drain all the water from the tank, remove the lid of the tank, unscrew the nut connecting the pipe to the tank itself. Be sure to loosen the siphon nut, get out the old membrane and replace it with a new one. Then replace the entire tank in the reverse order. Adjust the water level in the tank.
