The flush handle functioning explained by our plumbers in London

When effectuating the repair of a flush handle, our emergency plumber in London knows it is important to understand how this fixture functions.

The whole flushing process starts with the flush handle. When the handle which is always located on the right-hand corner of the toilet tank is pushed down, it causes the trip lever to rise.

The trip lever is connected to a chain inside the tank, which elevates the flush ball from its location. When this ball is elevated, the water from the toilet tank is poured into the bowl.

Right after the tank is emptied, the flush ball comes back into its location.
