Home Improvement & Repair on Video : How to Replace a Toilet Fill Valve


We’re going to replace the fill valve on
your toilet. I’m going to recommend a certain model which you cannot mix if you go to the
home store. It’s pretty universal and it adjusts to all heights, which may have been
the problem with your old one. By twisting this you can adjust the level that the water
will go to before this floats and then shuts off the water. This is a great model to use,
so I’m going to show you how to replace the old one with this new one.

What you’ll
want to do is cut off the water to the supply line as we’ve demonstrated before, and remove
the supply line. So, to remove the old one, all you do is loosen the nut at the bottom
to which the supply line was connected. That’s the only thing holding the refill valve in
place. And you lift it out, change it out, and here’s the one that goes in its place.

Now, the only components to this are the tube which goes in. And then once it goes
through under the tank, you’re going to put this lock nut in place and tighten it
as much as you can by hand, and then with a pair of pliers, give it an extra turn or
two to secure it in place. And then, after that, you put the little one washer in the
bottom, and then this over the top, which is the supply line connection.

You’ll
then reconnect this tube to the over-flow tube, and you’re set.

  1. I'm looking at your how to replace a fill valve instructions and you say you're going to recommend a certain model fill valve. You hold it up but don't tell us a company name or model. Can I ask what model it is. You also say it's available at the "home store". Is that Home Depot?

  2. fuild master sells that part inside that usually fails…most of the time its just that small part that fails….much much easier to replace…something that anybody who knows how to read can do…that part is not usually available in stores i think…but they sell it in fuild master website

  4. Needed to replace my old Fluidmaster 400 which had a slight leak. This was so easy to replace. No need to get all of the water out of the tank or make a big mess. Just pulled the old one out, put this one in, replaced the flapper and away I went.
