How To Fix Your Toilet Not Filling With Water After Flush

Toilets that will not fill up with water after flushing most likely need a slight readjustment. The toilet flapper and chain must form a seal in the hole so water can fill properly. If your toilet tank is not filling, check to see if you can hear any noise coming from it. You may hear running water, noises from air bubbles, changes in water drainage depending if the toilet flapper valve is not sealed or is moving, among other things. When this happens the best thing to do is to remove the top part of your toilet's water tank. Check to see if the chain is attached to the ring or hook on the rubber flapper, and if there are any alignment issues.


When you flush a toilet, you are pushing a level that pulls on the chain to open the toilet flapper. This allows the water to drain from the tank into the toilet. The water in the back or top of your toilet is relatively clean (not safe for drinking or sanitary), so you shouldn't have any issues reaching in to readjust the chain and flapper for your toilet.
