    "Most definitely, the float valve has packed up, when your cistern is filling the ball valve isn’t doing its job in cutting the water off when it gets to a certain level."

    "Yes, the ball valve must be letting by which would need replacing or the ball could be cracked and filled with water causing it too pull down and release continuous water.

    Replacement of valve supply and labour £80-£100 and would take approximately 1 hour

    Thank you"

    "Hiya, you can get a repair kit from toolstation for around a tenner. Job is dead easy. Turn mains water off, go into the loft. Unscrew nut. Take out old & replace washers/rubbers. Install a new float valve and turn the water back on.
    Should take less than an hour."
