How to Replace a Toilet Tank Valve

Hi Everyone!

I’ve been doing quite a few ‘pre-winter’ projects around the house  so you can expect a short stint of DIY, maintenance , repair type posts.

In this video I show you how to replace a worn out toilet tank valve, not the flapper valve, but rather the valve which controls the flow of incoming water.

You will know it is time to replace this hardware when the water either fails to turn ‘on’ when the toilet is flushed, or if the water fails to turn off (even worse). It just means the valve mechanism is sticking and needs to be replaced.

While you are doing this work, it is a good time to do some general toilet tank clean-up also. I do not cover the replacement of the flapper valve in this video (its pretty easy if it needs to happen).

This new valve is actually pretty neat! It is very quiet and I am expecting that it will last quite a while as there are very few moving parts.

It may seem at times like you have ‘done it all’ but there are many new crafts and lost skills out there for all of us! This is my mission!
