Toilet Overflowing
« on: November 17, 2018, 12:44:27 PM »
I didn't mean to post 3x....but it won't allow me to delete my duplicated messages....

Hello

Our loo was overflowing into the pan....I took apart the Wirquin Jollyfill inlet valve and gave the diaphragm washer a good clean...it made a big difference and stopped a lot of the overflow, however, about 5 min after flushing a tiny amount of water is still flowing into pan.

I suspect I need to clean out filter as in attached instructions...am I right in thinking I would need to take whole of toilet out to access it?

Any ideas much appreciated - thank you
Vicky

Congratulations!

We'll just mark the post overflow as part of the toilet overflow problem...

Haha! Yes post overflow too!

Cannot tell you how happy it has made me...so satisfying and saved a 60 plumber callout...I keep going to look at the pan and feeling so satisfied that there is no overflow.

What can I fix next? ;)
