    After flushing our toilet, the tank will not refill...:(

    If I turn off the valve that supplies the water and turn it back on it works...

    I do have a replacement Fluidmaster 400A Refill Valve, but wanted to see if anyone had any suggestions before I replace it...

    Thanks In Advance...

    Did you use a Watts FloodSafe supply hose? If so, replace it with a conventional one and everything will work fine.

    Nope - Just a plastic hose from the valve shutoff to the fill valve...

    IF the two valves are the same, just remove the top from the new one, or go to HD and buy a new replacement cap, and install it on the old valve.

    Just noticed something else - Seems like some type of pressure issue as if you turn on the bath tub cold water, then the fill valve starts working???

    Any ideas???
