How To Install A Toilet Water Inlet Valve - Torbeck Valve - Ultimate Handyman DIY Tips




What do you think about this video?

david post: Many thanks ,good instructions all easy to follow.Out of interest would you recommend this type of valve as it Seems other torbeck valves are around bottom feed, But have a float outside.

Ben W: Im getting an annoying little leak from the main inlet bit and the plastic nut. I've done it much tighter than you did in the video even just to be sure. Can't see where the water is coming from still. I even put ome plumbers tape around the threads/screw on both sides. Pretty annoying. Might just get some water proof sealant and stick it around the hole on the inside which is very over kill but should get rid of it no problem

Sharon Ash: Thank you, for a clear instructional video was able to fix my toilet although had a problem person who fitted my loo didn't bother screwing it to the tiled wall (oh no) they used silicone instead.

riaz zaman: Thanks for the upload, really useful video.

Bob Smith: Many thanks for this. Watched you this morning and fixed two toilets in my house with this problem. With both of them leaking, my water bill was QUADRUPLED! Now sorted. A very well filmed video.

Dan I: It wasn't my inlet valve that was the problem, it was the washer, but your video and help allowed me to spot that and fix it easily, would have cost me £60 if I'd called a plumber!

Alps P: I always end up spending lots of time with small leaks around the inlet valve - can u do a video on how to make sure the washer is correct there ? Should I use ptf tape when joining back up ?

Dan M: Another useful video I'll do this after the bank holiday cheers

James Butcher: great video, thank you

Pang Yan Wong: Thank you!

STLbluesfan1: I think in a case where the fill valve will not shut off is either a broken or damaged seal, or it has mineral deposits.

Jay Ro: Thank you for this vid

Jo Baecker: Heck, for any toilet projects where I need to drain the tank or bowl, I just stick my shopVac in there, with the reducer nozzle attachment. (Remember to remove the vac filter first!) - That water comes out 100% in a matter of 2-3 seconds, and you've got a dry workspace!

Kenny444 Tourist: While you are in the Bathroom/Toilet just pull a double piece of toilet paper off the roll, form it into a sausage and wrap it round the inlet and twist it, if it stays a uniform colour it is good, if it leaks you get drooping ends, an easy visual clue.

spyymaster: Your great videos may cost our UK plumbers their business. What to you say ? 

spyymaster: Do you have a video on how to free a Jammed main water tap ? Is freeze spray safe in the hands of rookies ? 

Cristian Cortes: you're a champ. thanks for that. exactly what i needed to know. thanks for good video tutorial.

spyymaster: Thanks a lot. Job all done. New torbek fill in place but when the valve shuts it makes a ghastly noise like a baby seal.......any idea why this is. ...Water hammer ?

Dan Welch: Thanks, I was going to get a plumber in but this made it look reasonably straightforward - all sorted for £10 from Screwfix!

Andrew Day: What make of flush valve and inlet value is that, as I have the same but the Flush sticks and the inlet is too slow.  Any help would be excellent
