Understanding How a Toilet Works

Many homeowners are content to flush their toilets without understanding anything about how they work. However, it’s helpful to learn the basics of toilet function in case anything goes wrong.  

This video discusses the basics of how toilets work. A gravity flow toilet, which can be found in most homes, involves two main parts—the tank and the bowl. Water flows into the tank until the fill valve closes. Every time you flush the toilet, you lift the flapper valve, allowing water to flow into the bowl. The force of the flowing water causes the water to flush downward.
