Dunny Plumbing - Float Valve

Sometimes, a camera just captures a process.
Remove the top
1. Turn the flush buttons piece
2. Remove the buttons
3. Take off the top of the cistern

Now inside the cistern, the float valve is accessible, it just needs to be unbolted. Turn off the water first, then flush to empty the cistern (and put down some old towels because water will spill).

Spotlight with an LED torch. First take the nut off, then the plastic nut.

Float valve
Out with the old, in with the new...

Tighten the nuts, and all done!

  1. One of the most famous examples of a float valve is found in the ballcock found in toilets around the world, but these valves are used in a number of applications. Many hardware stores stock float valves of various sizes and designs, and enterprising people can also make their own with objects lying around the house.
