Flow of water into american standard toilet tank is very slow and does not fill up to water mark


Adjust the level of the float, water level should be about 1/2" below top of overflow pipe. Slow filling can be due to a build up of calcium in fill vale, a partially blocked water valve, the washer many times gets deteriorated by the chlorine in the water, breaks up and clogs the fill line. Also many manufacturers (fluid-master in particular) place water restrictors inside the bottom of the fill tubes, which cause the water to fill much slower.

Slow filling toilet tank


Was taking over two minutes to fill. Problem was with fill valve.
To resolve problem either replace fill valve or remove the flow restriction. Here is how I done it.

Turn off water!!!!
Remove the supply line.
Inside of the fill valve is a rubber piece. It is about 3/4" in diameter by about 1" long. This rubber piece has become distorted after years of use. This has to be removed.
Believe it or not, use a corkscrew and thread it into the rubber piece that is located in the very lower section of the fill valve. You can't see it so you will have to feel. Pull it out.
Re-connect the supply line.
Turn on water.
Check for leaks.
Problem solved.
NOTE>>> This only works for American Standard fill valves.

I can see water trickeling on the bottom of the overflow tube. Already replaced gasket and removed the fill tube. Very slow, about every 20 min. the fill valve kicks on for about 5 sec.


The problem is your flapper. It is leaking water into the bowl, causing the valve to kick in as the water level slowly drops in the tank. It will also solve most condensation issues as well.

Hi keithn60...

I had the same problem one time with my toilet tank, the answer is to put some silicone on the seal washer between the take and bowl assembly and to use a level on the tank to tighten it just enough to be level and not leak.

Our American Standard toilet flushes ok but fills back up real slow. Very little water comes out of the hose that goes in to that tube. Can you help Thanks Howard


Okay Howard. It seems that the fill or float valve inside the toilet tank needs to be replaced. If you have a pair of channel locks / large pliers and some patience, you can do this yourself and save $ on a service call. This Solution is providing that you have good water pressure everywhere else in the house. First turn off the water on the supply line going to the tank. Flush the toilet (with the water off) to empty the tank. Take a towel / sponge / or wet vac to remove any remaining water. Remove the nut on the underside of the tank that holds the float / water supply to the tank. Now that you have the water float removed you can go to your local hardware store / Home Depot / or Plumbing Supplies Store and get a new fill valve. There are different kinds but they all do the same thing, fill your tank. I use a Fluid Master, But you may have to use one like you have. The Store will assist you. They are only about $10 - $15 Bucks or so.......Install the new float according to directions.....It is pretty simple. Insert your new float stem into the hole with the proper rubber washers and tighten carefully for a good seal. Insert the new black hose into the overflow tube and you are in business. You will have to adjust the water level to about a 1/4 Inch below the overflow tube for a good flush!!! I hope this helps you with the slow tank fill.............Joe
