Did you just try to flush your toilet, and nothing occurred? Peek inside the tank, and you might see no water inside. Before you worry, relax knowing that fixing this problem is usually simple. If you can’t figure it out yourself, you can always set up toilet repair with an Expert plumber. Follow these tips to diagnose and repair the problem of no water in the toilet tank.
The first move is to ensure that 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 not realize you had to turn it back on? To find out, spin the water shut-off valve on the wall to the rear of the toilet. If the valve was closed, water will now start refilling the tank. If this fails to work, check the water at your sink or an alternative plumbing fixture. If nothing spills out from the tap, you might have a bigger water supply issue. Contact your water company to find out more.
Older toilet designs use a float ball to gauge the water level as it rises in the tank. When the ball passes a certain height, the float arm it’s connected to stops the water flow. However, insufficient water could enter the tank if the ball is positioned incorrectly or the arm is broken. To adjust the float ball, start by removing the toilet tank lid. Bend the float arm up slightly to adjust where it sits in the tank. If this doesn’t fix the problem, you may need to replace the full float mechanism. You should be able to complete this yourself by following the directions that come with the replacement parts, or you can employ a plumber for help. Just note that float balls are old toilet systems. You may enjoy improved dependability and efficiency if you upgrade the existing tank components or replace the toilet entirely.
Newer toilets operate with a float cup rather than a float ball, coupled with a fill valve and water level rod. There may very well be no water in the toilet tank because the valve has slipped out of place or become clogged. Here are a couple to attempt:
If you’ve tried the steps above without success, the final possibility is a damaged trip assembly. This component connects the flush handle to the tank. If it’s damaged or positioned poorly, the flush cycle may not complete, leaving the tank bone dry. Take off the toilet tank lid and check the trip assembly connected to the handle. If it’s out of place, reposition it. If the assembly is bent, worn or busted, change it out. Whether you complete the job yourself or leave it to a plumber, this uncomplicated repair should get your toilet tank filled with water once again.
