I had my water shut off on vacation. When I returned and reopened the main water shutoff valve, all the water in my house worked properly, except for the pipe leading into my toilet bowl tank. Instead of letting water into the tank, it is generating mostly large air bubbles with occasional drops of water. What can I do to get rid of the air, and return to the normal situation of a water pipe delivering water?

Please don't point me to other Forum or Bulletin Board articles on this general topic. They all merely repeat the problem description, but provide no answer on how to fix it. If you know how, please please tell me....or email me directly at

Many thanks!

Many thanks for your prompt reply. Only problem is that I don't know what a fill valve is. Is it the complicated vertical structure through which the water is supposed to flow as it enters the tank?

Would an obvious novice (me) be able to disassemble it, or to replace it? Or does my ignorance suggest I will have to pay that $165 for a plumber?

I appreciate your advice and frank opinion.
