Why is my toilet Overflowing?
If you're lucky enough to have an internal overflow you may not even be noticing it. The next time you're in the bathroom and before you use the toilet, have a quick look at the back of your toilet pan.
Is there limescale build up from the rim down to the water? is the porcelain shimmering with a slow run of water from the rim?
If these symptoms sound familiar then it is more than likely that your fill valve in the toilet cistern has had it and is constantly filling up.
This is a massive waste of water and will hit you only when you go onto water metering.
This can easily and cheaply be rectified by simply replacing the old fasioned ball valve in your cistern with a modern, space saving fill valve.
See our how to page for instructions on replacing your ball valve with a fill valve.

The Environment Agency has developed a methodology for identifying and classifying relative levels of water stress in water company areas in England. The Government has used this map to designate areas of serious water stress for the purpose of accelerating water metering.
