I'm Terry with Towers Murray Plumbing, Murray, Utah. We're here to show you how to reinstall your new ballcock assembly in your toilet. New ballcock assembly, make sure the washer is attached to the bottom of the ballcock; ballcock slides down through the hole, locking that out on the bottom. You need to start it straight, make sure you're on straight. Take your pliers, give it just a little bit of tightening. You don't want to over-tighten it on plastic. Once it's tightened into place, you want to recap your waterline; the same thing, give it a little tighten, not, do not over tighten it. Inside the tank, you've got a refill tube; tube that refills the ball, fits inside of the overflow assembly. At this point you're ready to turn your water back on. Go ahead and turn the water on. Wait for it to fill and you can now make your adjustments which both of them are made from a, adjustment screw on top of the ballcock assembly, usually located at, on the float arm. Once you have the adjustment, flush the toilet, make sure the water level comes to the right location. When you're, and once everything's, your final adjustments are made, you're done with the install.
