Plumber Mornington: Ben Drive Cistern Inlet Valve Replacement

Do you have a toilet that continually runs water into the bowl? There’s a good chance that your cistern inlet valve is broken. Of course there are more things that can be the reason for this problem although this is definitely one of the more common reasons.

Orbit Plumbing Somerville received a call out to a job in Mornington recently where this problem was occurring. We informed the customer over the phone that they could turn the toilet Isolation valve off at the wall as a way to temporarily turn off the water and stop it running through the toilet except they informed us that they isolation valve was stiff and they could not turn it off. Our next recommendation was that they could turn the water meter off until we arrived.

Two of our Mount Eliza Plumbers attended this property to rectify the issue. When they arrived they discovered that the Cistern Inlet valve would never turn off so what it was doing was constantly filling the water over into the safety overflow pipe. This was a clear indication that the valve required a replacement.

After replacing the cistern Inlet valve we also changed the isolation valve on the wall for a new quarter turn mini stop and flexible hose which make future issues much easier to isolate.
