Steps to Stop an Overflowing Toilet
Remove the lid from the toilet tank and set it down.
Reach inside the tank and push down the flapper valve. (The rubber flap at the bottom of the tank.) This should stop additional water from flowing into the toilet bowl.
Lift the float (the ball device attached to the float adjustment screw) to stop the tank fill valve from filling the tank. With the toilet tank’s main water supply blocked, you should see the toilet bowl water start to go down. After a few minutes, you can release the float.
If the water does not stop filling in the toilet bowl, keep a hold on the float and turn off the water to the toilet. This shutoff valve is usually located near the floor or on the wall behind the toilet.
