Hi, my name is Chris Wade and I'm a contractor in the city of Los Angeles. Today, I'm going to show you how to fix a toilet with no water. A couple of things you can check is to see if your angle stop is on. And the way to do that is just turning the handle on and off. It's just that simple. There could be a kink in the water supply line if the water is on. And that would obviously there's going to be a blockage in here. You want to undo this and check it and see if there's any blockage or anything. The other thing you can check is this water line right here. If you just pull it off and if no water comes out then you know that's behind this and it can either be this gizmo is not working properly. In which case you'll have to replace. Or this has a kink in it, that could block it too. If you check those simple things and you are still finding that you are not getting any water to your tank it's going to be another issue that's going to be in the wall or you might want to check to see if your shut off valve at the street is on or off. There's really not a lot of things that water can do and not do if it's on. If it's on you are going to see water somewhere. If it's off then that's going to be your problem. Just get some water running to it. And if none of those things to, seem to work I'm going to suggest that you open up your phone book and get a licensed plumber out to your place and have him do a thorough troubleshooting check.
