SERVICING A FLUSH VALVE

1. Turn off water at mini tap

3. 
Remove lid (Consult your cistern manufacturer for advice - your cistern lid may remove easily, it may require the button to first be unscrewed, or it may require further steps. On some models, the full flush must be pressed down which allows access to a notch on the side of the half flush. The half flush button is removed with this notch, then the full flush button, and finally the plastic screw holding the lid on can be accessed)

Unscrew backnut and flush pipe nut and remove the outlet valve

5. 
Inspect the outlet valve and replace seating washer if required

6. 
Ensure new seating washer is lying flat against the outlet valve
