How to Clean the Toilet Water Control Valve of Debris
If you notice that the water control/fill valve in your toilet shuts off but continues to leak slowly, follow this procedure to clear it of debris as it may resolve this issue.
Use this guide and video to help clear your water control/fill valve of debris, as it may resolve the leaking.
STEP 1: Begin by turning off the water supply. Make sure the water supply is off.
STEP 2: Remove the valve top by lifting the arm, then rotating the top and arm, pressing down slightly on the cap.
STEP 3: While holding a container (we suggest a paper cup) over the uncapped valve to prevent splashing, turn the water supply on and off a few times – then leave it off.
STEP 4: Replace the top by engaging the lugs and rotating 1/8 turn clockwise – make certain the tip is turned to the locked position.
Congratulations! Your water control valve should be clear of debris.
