Toiler Shut Off Valve


Your question is confusing. How did you replace the fill-valve if the shut-off valve doesn't shut the water off? The fill-valve, if adjusted properly, will stop water from entering the tank, even with the water supply valve turned on.

Depends on your setup. I just did this the other week with our toilet downstairs. New wax ring, bolts, stainless supply line, and 1/4 turn shutoff valve.

Now for mine, I simply had to remove the nut behind the shutoff valve and replace with the new shutoff valve.

I would hope yours is done similarly. The plumber was thinking ahead if it's just soddered.

I'm wondering if the OP is refering to the flush valve/flapper.
