I need a Plumber - May 14, 2008, 04:11 PM

Toilet worked fine last night when I went to bed. But when I got up this morning, it was not working.

It seems that there is no water flowing through the pipe to the toilet. It doesnt seem to be leaking anywhere in the house. My bathroom is directly above the dinning room table. But like I said, it doesnt seem to be leaking from a busted pipe or anything. Just no water is coming through the pipe now.

So...got any ideas? Does anyone here on the board work as a plumber or has a plumber for a friend that can come over and take a look and tell me what the hell is going on?

Here is what it looks like coming out of the wall.

Thanks everyone.

It is closed. Because it is not connected to the toilet. And I didnt want water shooting all over the place when and if it decided to work again and it was not connected.

Paid your water bill lately?
No really though, you need to open the valve to make sure it's not clogged at the pipe or even worse... in the wall.

Okay...got it all figured out...it is a FloodSafe line. The FloodSafe part is bad and is actually preventing the water from flowing through. Heading to Home Depot to either get a new FS line or just a straight through line.

But either way...its all figured out now. Thanks for helping out.

Looks like I was a day to late. Those fail safe lines do have pressure sensitive flow preventers in them that will block water flow if they sense too much pressure.

For future reference, remove the line and test the valve separately.
