There are a few things that could be causing your toilet not to refill after you flush. It could be that the water level in the tank is too low, the flush valve is damaged, or the vent stack is plugged.
Water Level is Too Low
If the water level in the tank is too low, it could be that the fill valve needs to be adjusted. To adjust the fill valve, you will need to turn the adjustment screw clockwise to raise the water level or counterclockwise to lower it.
Flush Valve is Damaged
If the flush valve is damaged, it may be due to excessive wear or because of mineral buildup. You can try cleaning the flush valve to see if that helps, or you may need to replace it altogether.
Plugged Vent Stack
Finally, if the vent stack is plugged, this could cause your toilet not to refill properly after you flush. If this is the case, you will need to clear the obstruction from the vent stack.
If you’re still having trouble after trying these things, it may be time to call a plumber. They can help you diagnose the problem and find a solution that works for you.
