Did you just try to flush your toilet, and nothing occurred? Glance into the tank, and you may see no water inside. Before you worry, rest assured that fixing this challenge is usually straightforward. If you can’t do it yourself, you can always schedule toilet repair with an experienced plumber. Follow these recommendations to diagnose and repair the problem of no water in the toilet tank.
The first move is to make sure the water is flowing. If you or someone in your household recently performed a toilet repair, you most likely turned off the water first. Did you forget to turn it back on? To check, rotate the water shut-off valve on the wall behind the toilet. If the valve was closed, water should now start refilling the tank. If this fails to work, check the water at your sink or another plumbing fixture. If nothing comes out from the tap, you might have a more substantial water supply issue. Phone your water company to get more details.
Older toilet brands use a float ball to gauge the water level as it increases in the tank. When the ball hits a specified height, the float arm it’s connected to stops the water flow. However, insufficient water might enter the tank if the ball is positioned improperly or the arm is broken. To adjust the float ball, start by removing the toilet tank top. Bend the float arm up slightly to adjust where it sits in the tank. If this does not fix the problem, you may need to replace the entire float mechanism. You should be able to complete this yourself by following the detailed steps that come with the replacement parts, or you can work with a plumber for help. Just understand that float balls are old toilet technology. You may appreciate improved dependability and efficiency if you upgrade the existing tank components or replace the toilet entirely.
Modern toilets operate with a float cup rather than a float ball, coupled with a fill valve and water level rod. There may be no water in the toilet tank because the valve has slipped out of place or become clogged. Here are techniques to attempt:
If you’ve tried the steps above without positive results, the final possibility is a broken trip assembly. This component links the flush handle to the tank. If it’s not working or positioned improperly, the flush cycle may not complete, leaving the tank empty. Take off the toilet tank lid and look at the trip assembly fastened to the handle. If it’s out of place, reposition it. If the assembly is bent, worn or busted, change it out. Whether you perform the job yourself or leave it to a plumber, this easy repair should get your toilet tank filled with water once more.
