    Hi All

    I have a newer style Ideal Standard Toilet where the water is leaking into the pan. Sometimes the water trickles down quite a bit, sometimes it drips and sometime I struggle to see if it dripping. Seems to change after each flush. Leaks more often than not. Being on a water meter it is starting to annoy me. I have tried the following which has made no difference;

    1. Reduced the water level below the line in the cistern
    2. Replaced the diaphragm (Armitage Shanks Ideal Standard Univalve QT Cistern Inlet Fill valve Diaphragm)

    Any ideas on what it could be ?

    Many Thanks in Advance

    Is the water level reaching the overflow ?

    Picture attached as requested, not reaching overflow as I reduced water capacity to below the line in cistern.

    Sounds like a new flush valve seal is needed, rather than the inlet valve diaphragm.

    If you dismantle the flushing part and clean things up you might be able to cure it. Modern plastic ones like that usually just click together, not much kit needed.
