Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. If my initial response doesn’t answer your question then let me know and we can continue our conversation.

Turn the water off under the toilet, disconnect the supply tube to the toilet fill valve then direct the supply into a bucket and turn the shut off back on. Do you have water coming out?

ok dum qyetion ,would the bonnet and stem be under the house under the toilet
Plumber: Rick, Construction Supervisor replied 5 months ago

The shut off handle is attached to the stem. Behind the handle is usually a large hex that you can back off so you can pull the guts out of the valve. Some PVC shut offs can't be taken apart.
