Are you experiencing a slow filling of your toilet? Although not all toilet problems are serious or expensive, it is important to understand the problem and find the best way to fix it.
What is the reason it takes for your toilet tank to fill up?
This could be a blocked outlet, a blocked drain, or faulty plumbing.
1. A blocked vent. If your tank is blocked, it will not be capable of draining air. It will take more time for the water to fill.
2. A blocked drain. To make your toilet tank function properly, it must be clear of obstructions. You can flush the drain with vinegar and baking soda.
3. A faulty water supply. If your toilet has a leaky line, it will take longer to fill.
4. Blockage of the pipe. Your toilet can fill slowly if there is something blocking the water flow (usually a piece of paper or a toy).
