    Toilet - constantly dripping

    Toilet - constantly dripping 25th Jun 09 at 1:02 PM

    I wonder if anyone can help - after flushing the toilet when it re-fills the cistern with water there is a constant drip to start with and then a continuous very fine stream of water which never stops (from the little plastic bit inside the cistern where the water flows from),

    At first it was just dripping and I had a plumber look at it and thought it had been fixed. But recently it started dripping again and when I looked under the lid I could see the constant fine stream running from the filling bit.

    Please could anyone say what part of the gubbings inside is likely to have gone and whether I could have a go at fixing this myself?

    I'd like to avoid having to replace the whole toilet and/or cistern if possible.

    Many thanks in advance.
