How do you turn off the water to the toilet with a push pull valve?
To turn off water supply to your toilet, look for the toilet shut off valve on the left-hand hand side on the rear wall of the toilet close to the bottom. Turn this valve clockwise until it can’t turn anymore. Sometimes your toilet will have a push/pull valve.
Which direction do you turn the toilet water valve to shut it off?
As with most faucets and valves, you’ll turn your toilet valve in a clockwise direction to shut off the water supply. You’ll know the valve is off if it’s at a diagonal angle to the water supply pipe. If it’s in line with the water supply pipe, then the valve is on.
Is it bad to shut off water to toilet?
It’s recommended you shut off your water when: A pipe, fixture, or appliance is leaking. The toilet is running constantly even after adjusting the parts in the tank. A pipe bursts.
What happens if you flush the toilet when the water is off?
Typically, if the water is shut off, the toilet will still have one flush left —toilets automatically fill up the bowl after being flushed. If that extra flush is already used, you can easily recreate a flush. Use a bucket to collect water from another source, such as the rain or pool. Remove the toilet tank lid.
Do all toilets have a shut-off valve?
Toilets, just like other plumbing fixtures, come with a shutoff valve. The shutoff valve is mostly located in the toilet’s water supply line. It’s necessary for every toilet to have its dedicated shutoff valve for convenience.
Should toilet water valve be open all the way?
All the way open. The valve controls flow not pressure. Those angle stop valves should be fully open because they have a back seat to prevent leaking in case the stem packing leaks.

What happens if the toilet doesn’t have a shut off valve?
Some older toilets don’t have shutoff valves behind them. If this is the case for you, you’ll have to use the wooden board method or simply cut off the main water supply for your entire home to turn off the toilet’s water supply.
Why won’t the toilet water stop running?
No need to worry, a running toilet is usually a simple fix. The three most common causes are a broken or dirty flapper, too long or too short of a chain between the flush lever and the flapper or a float that is out of position. The first thing you will need to do is turn off the water feeding into the toilet.
