Why is My Toilet Slow to Fill?

Most toilets take 30 seconds to 2 minutes to fill. If your toilet takes longer, you have a problem!

1: Low Water Pressure

If your home doesn’t have decent water pressure in your home, it will affect how long the toilet tank takes to fill. Get a water pressure gauge and check it!

2: Shut-Off Valve Not Fully Open

If your water supply valve is not fully open, it will restrict water flow into your home’s plumbing system and cause various issues.

3: Waterlogged Float Ball

A waterlogged float ball can cause issues with a toilet, such as a toilet tank filling slowly or constantly running water. Time to pull it out and check it!

4: Clogged Water Supply Hose

The water supply hose connects your toilet to your home’s fresh water supply. If it's clogged or kinked, it will restrict the flow of water.

5: Clogged Fill Valve

A clogged fill valve can cause a slow-filling toilet. The fill valve is the main component that controls the flow of water into the toilet tank. Might be time for a replacement.
