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




What do you think about this video?

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

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

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 ?

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

Tim Fidler: Great video. Helped me to identify and solve this problem. Had a real job unscrewing the plastic nut due to it being so tight up against the ceramic but in the end managed it with some mole grips. Many thanks for sharing your expertise. 

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

Alan Gardner: How much would it cost to get a plumber to do that / how much do you charge?! Whatever it is, it saved me that amount. I used a Siamp Compact 99B for the job though due to me having a corner toilet. It would be better if the new inlet came with a new washer though... Excellent video, thanks a lot.

Johnny B: Who painted the wall?

bluemezz60: Excellent video. Covered everything so my job went smoothly. Saved a fortune. Thank you. :)

Frances Sung: excellent thanks a lot

VoyagesDuSpectateur: This was very helpful - it gave me the confidence to do it myself rather than calling a plumber. The job only took me about 20 minutes and was much easier than I expected. I added some jointing compound when screwing the water pipe back on - but I'm not sure if that's necessary.

icespeckledhens: Good Video but on my cistern the water level does not rise at all but is constantly filling and discharging into the pan at the same time. It does not seem to be the same problem as yours.

Amir Riaz: can you please tell me what is the model of dual flush valve in the video. because i have exact model in my toilet tank. and i cannot find the make and model because its not working properly. and i want to replace the just top bit.

Johnny B: Sorry, I realise that you are the plumber and not the decorator. Very helpful video.

Sanjey Rai: excellent, just what I needed

Cuff Martin: Thanks UHM. I'm super not-handy and this got me over the line. Took me ages though! Note to novices like me - look out for a water restriction valve in the shaft of the replacement inlet valve. Pull that freaker out - gave me serious grief and wasn't required!

Ultimate Handyman: @YEDz79 Good luck with it!

Ultimate Handyman: Sorry, not got a clue. I would go and check but I moved out of that house 2 years ago.

Flashmore: i meant at the beginning ;)...nothing u did..!!...

Ultimate Handyman: I'm busy for the next few weeks but I'll add it to my list. Thanks for the comment ;-)

YEDz79: This is the exact toilet i have, the plastic nut was leaking, i tried everything bar replacing the unit and it always leaked. I'm going to take your advice i'll change it tomorrow, cheers bud.

Ultimate Handyman: @FlashmoreGash It wasn't ;-)

YEDz79: sorry didn't get back you, did the job, cheers mate saved me no doubt a small fortune

Ultimate Handyman: Hi, you are welcome. Unfortunately I have never seen a cistern as you describe. You could try asking in the plumbing forum ( link on channel page, free to join)

Ultimate Handyman: @shaunylad1 You are welcome. Thanks for the comment!

Andy Cippico: Great informational video! Thanks.

Ultimate Handyman: @thambikutty Yes, the standard one that came with the toilet was useless as it often would not shut off the water when it should. I replaced mine with a Torbeck valve which was a huge improvement!

Flashmore: the nut looks cross threaded!...

Ultimate Handyman: @FlashmoreGash Oh right! I'm not sure to be honest as it was filmed a long time ago. Much of the plastic used in toilets these days is very poor quality. The plumbing that was done in that house originally was not done to a good standard, so you could be right!

benoso: Good video mate. I've just had a look at mine and the overflow pipe is stuck to that central column so when I try to twice anti-clockwise, I can only go so far because there isn't enough room in the cistern for to rotate 360 degrees. Any ideas?

zakzak000: A lot of people over tighten the float valve connection, this ruins the plastic thread and leaks alwasy occur. Seen too many in my time!

zakeriyah ali: Thanks worked a treat been putting it off for while and thought about getting plumber in. Saved a few quid. Thanks again

MrFloppymiaowmiaow: Just wanted to say how helpful the video was. Changed the inlet valve yesterday. Kept leaking from the bottom nut...lol...nothing to do with your excellent video, just my workmanship! Cheers mate

TheMerseycop: @ultimatehandyman is she a good spread?? lol where did you learn your stuff

Ultimate Handyman: @TheMerseycop I have never been on one so cannot comment, although my girlfriend went on a 2 day plastering course and she got a certificate LOL

Ultimate Handyman: @donncha2001 You are welcome. These inlet valves are a real pain. I know old toilets where the ball valve has lasted 30 years, then these pieces of junk came along Arghh.

TheMerseycop: @ultimatehandyman im embarking on a 4day intensive plumbing course with lancs school of trades been a tiler for 20yrs an plastering 10yrs whats your thoughts on these courses?

Ultimate Handyman: @thambikutty Not sure as I am not familiar with that brand, sorry!

Ultimate Handyman: @iq4u3 Thanks for the comment

Ultimate Handyman: @acippico You are welcome. Thanks for the comment

binnsh: It's curious that this fill valve is on the right,, although you drive on the left. In the US they are all on the left although we drive on the right. We also have Fluidmaster valves, which are the bomb.

Benzknees: If you do get a leak from the screwed joint, between the inlet valve and isolation valve, what would you use to seal it? Can you use PTFE tape on plastic screw threads?

Thuwa Rajah: did u say that the inlet valve , which u previously had wasn't any good? because i got same one and i m havin the same problem.. I don't whether to get a replacement of the same make or a different make!!

Ultimate Handyman: @TheMerseycop She's terrible LOL. I learnt a lot from reading DIY books when I was younger and from watching people

Ultimate Handyman: You are welcome.

Ultimate Handyman: Thanks for the comment It gets easier with practice ;-)

yossariancomplex: Good video, very informative and easy to follow. Any chance of posting one showing how to service the old valvue? I'm told there's a washer somewhere in the valve's mechanism that if replaced will likely solve the problem. Cheers.

yossariancomplex: Cheers mate. Job's a good'n.

Ultimate Handyman: Not sure, I'll look out for one in future and see if I know what it's for ;-)

JonnyBgood41: Nice plumbing job, now you need a decorator to repaint that horrible mauve wall!!
