Odd thing happened today. Went to flush the tank and it would not fill.

The tank hardware is ok.

But, not getting water from the knob below the tank, but when I turn it all the way out water sprays out of the knob. Must be a bad stem?

Dare I risk taking out the stem on a valve in a 20 year old house or will I make something leak inside the wall?

Lots of corrosion to the fittings.

Also, sink faucet blasts water now as does tub faucet. Never did that before.

Is the stem bad on valve coming out of the wall under the tank?

It is the hardware in the tank. The water is coming to the tank ok, sorry.

What is the state of the art flush mechanism today? Mine appears to have died, all plastic by FluidMaster I think.
