Introduction: Repairing a Toilet
my toilet was leaking from 2 spots and lacking bad. The 2 pics are of what broke the water line and the fill valve. the rubber seal on the fill valve was cracked and the lone had a pin hole in it
Step 1: Turn Off Water and Flush Toilet (VERY IMPORTANT!!!)
You'll get wet otherwise
Step 2: Drain the Tank and Hose
unscrew fill valve and drain into a bucket
Step 3: Start Assembly of New Fill Valve
pretty simple just make sure the rubber seal is tight and don't screw it too tight
Step 4: Attach Water Lines
In picture 5 is the adapter that was needed to fit the line on and in picture 1 I hooked up the drainage tube.
Step 5: Attach the Floater
after you get everything else together turn the water on and make sure it will stop at the fill line
Step 6: Make Any Necessary Adjustments
Do a few test flushes and now you're done

the flapper that was on there was functioning properly so I didn't replace it. I will use the other flapper when it is needed.

Why didn't you install the new flapper that came with the ballcock valve?

You should also check to make sure that your flapper is not leaking water down the drain.
