      I posed this question earlier but did not have an opportunity to get back on the net until now. Hope someone can help. Every time someone flushes the toilet, we hear a loud bellowing noise as soon as the tank is finished filling. I can get the noise to stop if I pull up on the float in the tank when the tank is nearly full. The noise seems to be coming from the thing where the water comes into the tank. Any help would be appreciated because the noise is so loud, it wakes everyone up at night.Thanks, Monica Gause

To replace them you must turn off the water supply located at the wall under your water tank. Disassemble the valve where the float arm attaches, normally three screws hold this part of the valve together. take the washers and the top of the valve to the hardware store to the plumbing department and the sales clerk will sell you the parts that you need to repair the valve.Hope this solves your problem.

The easiest way to fix this is to replace the entire valve with a new one.KenKen Goldman, MP President Kenco Plumbing & Heating, Inc. 13220 Wisteria Drive, N5 Germantown, MD 20874 USA 1-800-58-KENCO fax 301-990-0056 http://www.kencoplumb.com========================================= | Setting the standard for PLUMBING SERVICE | to residential and commercial property managers | for the TWENTY FIRST CENTURY! **************************************************************
