Willie is a postal employee that travels 360 days a year, and has little time to work on his century studio cottage in downtown Chino, California. Willie called my repair service to solve a his toilet leaking all over the floor.
This post show the nine steps for a quick fix to repair this toilet water feed problem.
Step 1: Look at the toilet bowl. Find the problem!
Step 2: Fig.1 shows the clear tubing that will replace the damage tubing inside the toilet bowl.
Step 3: Fig.2 shows the red cap is the toilet fill valve. Inside the bowl is a white tiny rubber line coming from the toilet valve to the white overflow tube. Remove this tube from the toilet. The fill tube had a hole in the middle of it and the water was leaking out of the tube spraying against the top of the toilet bowl cover and leaking on the floor. This is a low cost fix.

Step 5: Fig.3 shows the little tube in the middle of the toilet fill valve. That is where the clear tube goes.
