The toilet tank is where all the major plumbing takes place in a toilet and where most of your toilet repairs will occur.
The purpose of the tank is to contain the water needed to flush the toilet and to conceal the plumbing apparatus that fills and empties the tank. The tank may contain a variety of different parts that need repair.
Open any two toilet tanks and you'll often find very different components inside.
Why? Well new technologies and materials have evolved over the past several decades, but in the end, there are just two major components with several variations.
TheToilet Fill Valveis the mechanism that fills the tank with water. It is also known as a "ballcock" or a "refill valve". Fill valves comes in four basic variations:
Plunger Type Ballcock (oldest style brass type valve)
Diaphragm Type Ballcock (older brass style and newer plastic type valve)
Float Cup Type Ballcock (newer plastic type)
Floatless Type Ballcock (newer plastic type)
The Flush Valve is what releases the water stored in the tank, closes the flow of water into the toilet and allows the tank to refill for the next use. It is the assembly that bolts to the bottom of the tank and includes the overflow pipe and the valve seat. Flapper balls are common on newer flush valves and are connected to the handle lift arm with a lift chain. Float balls are more common on older style flush valves and are designed to lift and drop into the valve opening. The float ball is connected to the handle lift arm by a lift wire that runs through a guide arm attached to the overflow pipe.
