    Default Toilet Fill Tube Missing

    I inspected a house today built in 2005. All of the toilets have the same type ball-cock in the tank. All of the toilets are missing the fill tube to the overflow. No water comes out of the tube connection at the ball-cock. I don't know if it came from mfg. this way or did the HO plug it?

    We are in a draught here in the SE, but think this might be going a bit far. The toilet bowl does not fill after flushing, just a little left in the bottom. I did not give it the litmus test but think flush may be weak at best.

    Is the toilet functioning as intended?

    Thanks
    Vern

    Thanks Jerry, that was my original thought until I noticed no water from the tube fitting. Don't know how they are plugged. I'll let the plumber figure it out.

    This is the way this w/c is designed to work, changing the fill valve will not improve the flush only waist water. The flush cycle is timed using the flapper.

    Thanks Tony, I had a suspicion there was some design change. Do you have a web site or some reference I could go to?

    It is the original equipment for that W/C. A local sales rep, or their web site shoud be a good source.
