Toilet Tank Will Not Fill with Water?

Answer

Most homeowners experience issues with the toilet filling with way too much water. However, sometimes the opposite problem can occur, and the toilet tank will not fill with water as it should. The first step to fix this problem should be to take the lid off the tank, then flush the toilet. Check the position of the float ball. If it's really low, it could cause the tank to not fill. If it is damaged or holding water, it may need to be replaced.
