Question about Duravit Cistern Puravida White Concealed Back Supply Df 0872700005

1 Answer

My concealed cistern is filling from the top of the fill valve instead of from the bottom, as it is doing this it takes ages to fill up

Have taken off the lever that allows the valve to go up/down and checked out the seal, on the model downstairs the water fills from the bottom of the valve and makes no noise, the one upstair used to do the same but now when it fills it makes a noise and the water fills from the top of the valve

Dual flush toilet fills slowly. The fill valve is pushing water cistern seems ok. The fill hose shoots water down overflow tube this is the design. If hose placed tank it fills no problem.

check /replace the small rubber washer at the end of the fill tube as they tend to grow with age and reduce the flow of water past the inlet

What is causing my toilet cistern to fill very slow?

The fill valve (operated by the float) may be clogged with sand or debris from inside the pipe. It's generally easier to replace a fill valve than it is to take it apart & clean it.

I recently installed new fluidmaster fill valve. Now when i try and turn valve from wall on the water flow from valve shuts off before i can get valve all the way on. Even if i turn it on slow it will...

You have a water restriction, a fluid master can be taken appart it has a cap on top that will pop off that conceals a washer where water comes up.

First turn water off and remove cap and barely crack valve and flush out with cap and washer out just look at it good so you will know how to put it back together.

That way it let you know if the valve is where the problem is. You could take supply line loose from bottom of tank and turn valve on run some in a container to flush out any trash in line.

The toilet was installed under the stairs a year ago and has hardly been used - the bowl keeps filling after flushing and overflows, I cant shut it off. It flooded the down stairs twice now - all over...

Take the lid off the cistern tank and have a look. There is a ( usually ) round float ball in there. This is what is causing it. When the cistern fills up the ball is supposed to float up and the arm it attaches to shuts off the water, usually at the opposite end to the float.
Turn the tap on the pipe to the cistern so it is nearly off and move the arm up and down by hand. See what it is getting stuck on or what is happening.

If it is not a simple sticking problem, you may need to undo the top of the cistern valve itself ( opposite end to the ball. )
Turn the water off completely to the cistern to do this or you will get squirted. :)
They are fiddly little valves and all a bit different but if you take your time and make sure you have a good light you will be able to work out what has been happening.
Hope this is some help.
