This project is continued from Part 3.
A new Brasscraft® Speedi Plumb® PLUS toilet connector hose replaces the old PVC hose. The Brasscraft hose is 9 inches in length with a 7/8 inch fill valve fitting and a 3/8 inch compression nut for the water supply valve. The Brasscraft hose is pre-assembled with the cone washer and ready to install.
Do not use Teflon plumber’s tape or plumber’s putty on the hose connections.
The 3/8 inch compression nut Brasscraft toilet connector hose detail.
Tighten the 3/8 inch compression nut on the water supply valve using a wrench. Do not over tighten.
The Brasscraft toilet connector hose has a large wing nut for hand tightening to the shank of the fill valve. It helps to hold hose body to prevent it from twisting as you tighten the wing nut.
The toilet connector hose installed and ready for service.
Slip the refill tube over the nipple on fill valve – hold the fill valve while doing this to avoid stressing valve body. The purpose of the refill tube is to fill the toilet bowl with water after flushing.
Remove the old refill tube holder from the overflow pipe by sliding it off the end of the pipe.
Install the angle adapter on the overflow pipe as shown and measure where to cut the refill tube at the nipple of the angle adapter. I just pinch and hold where to cut with scissors.
The bowl refill tube cut to length and installed on the angle adapter:
This project is concluded in Part 5.
