A toilet tank that’s taking too long to fill after a flush is a common problem many homeowners face. Fortunately, they’re often relatively simple to fix. But to ensure the solution works effectively, you need to identify the cause.
On average, a toilet tank fills up in under a minute. But if yours is taking much longer, it may be due to several possible issues, such as:
If the float ball is the main cause of your slow-filling tank, pulling the old one off the float arm and replacing it with a new one might help solve the problem. As for the clogged drain, try plunging it with some vinegar and baking soda, and then let it sit for about 10 minutes. Afterward, pour another half-cup of baking soda down the drain and then six cups of boiling water.
However, if you find leaks under or around the tank or the solution to eliminating drain clogs didn’t work, you need the assistance of an experienced plumber from Handyman Connection® of Mason. All of our plumbing work is performed by professionals who walk you through the process every step of the way for a simple and seamless experience. Our goal is your complete satisfaction.
