    Toilet cistern not filling with water - help! 25th May 07 at 7:44 AM
    Hey All

    Woke up this morning and our toilet won't flush. The cistern is of the concealed variety and it behind a panel which we have removed but the gap between the top of the cistern is so tight that we have to use a mirror to see inside! Closer inspection shows the cistern isn't filling with water. We filled the cistern up using the shower and it flushes fine, but for some reason won't refill.

    Anyone any ideas on how to fix or what might be causing it? Would rather try ourselves that foot the bill of a plumber at the moment.
