    Hi
    We have a very slow (one every 1-2 minutes) drip into our toilet cistern, which is resulting in a very slow drip from the outside overflow pipe. I slightly adjusted the amount of water coming into the cistern so it doesn't immediately fill so far up, but this hasn't made a difference as the dripping doesn't stop and eventually it fills right up again. Is this a problem with a valve or washer or some other bit that I don't know about?!
    Many thanks

    New washer is needed.

    Post a picture of your float valve and I can tell you what you need.
