Toilet Tank

My toilet tank just recently started taking a very long time to fill.

Toilet Tank

The fill valve needs repair or replacement. If it is the old type with the ball/arm on it, replace it with a new Fluidmaster 400 unit. $9 at home/hardware stores, easy to replace and adjust. Also replace the line from the shutoff valve with a new stainless flex hose.
