Discuss Toilet Cistern Overflowing (Picture Included) in the Valves & Taps area at PlumbersForums.net
Sorry, the float valve you have is part 1 (old type) part 2 is brass and part 3 is plastic both with air gapsSorry what do you mean by part 2 or 3?
- correct but not needed if you install a part 2 or 3, an isolation valve is a requirement of water regs regardless, unless you opt for the repair option as suggested by some members.Im guessing the check valve requirement is due to the lack of air gap?
Why didn’t you turn the water off?Thanks for all the advice its appreciated.
The toilet / bathroom is to be replaced next year so I opted to try bodging it first. I removed the ball cock arm and bent is slightly and its stopped over flowing now.
Unfortunately though I caused a bit of a flood whilst the ball cock was off as I had assumed the overflow would handle the water coming in but it didn't, and water was entering the cistern quicker than it could get down the over flow, this was all happening while I was in the garage bending the arm fortunately its a down stairs toilet.
