Question about American Standard 2294.011.020 Afwall Elongated Wall-ADA Retrofit Toilet
I installed the above about 1 year ago. Shortly after installation, the toilet would start to refill about 1-2 times an hour. I took the top off and you could see and hear it leaking slightly thus why the refill. The setup is unique and simple but I have tried everything from adjusting the way the seal is seated to replacing the seal/rubber gasket. Sometimes when you flush the seal doesn't seat properly and the toilet leaks constantly and refills every 5 minutes. I either flush toilet again or adjust the seal and the problem seems to go away until the next flush.
There is none. I thought I had an unusual case but after replace numerous flappers (some purchased and some sent by AS, this toilet will continue to leak into the bowl. American Standard sent a new complete flush valve and that did not work. This toilet has leaked for 4 years now and I have to shut the water off manually. Good flush, bad design for water retention. Contacting AS two weeks ago asking for a replacement tank has met with stall while they review. I'm done waiting. Two Kohlers in the house do not leak a drip. Guess what happens today? If I do not have contact back today I'm going to the local home center and buying a Kohler, and will be a stuanch critic of AS fixtures in that aisle from this day forward. They know anout this but can not fix it. Cram that five year warranty. Like the line in the movie said, "Guaranteed, I can sh** in the box and mark it guaranteed, and you would have a guaranteed piece of sh**.

Get a new filler assembly. the water in the tank is heavy enough to close the seal completely. or the rubber seal is not making contact. thats' why the leak.
change the whole assemble ususally correct the problem.
adjuste the flow to about 1/4 to 1/3 under the over flow. if that still don't give you the pressure. you ca adjust the flow tube to 1/5 under the cover. that is the max.

I had the same problem with my AS Hamilton one piece. I replaced the flapper but the problem still existed where the unit kept on refilling every now and again. Checked with American Standard only to be told that they do not carry the parts and we would have to replace the whole flush system with a generic model with an internal expander which makes the seal. I decided to use a Master Plumber tank to bowl seal #233 and it works just fine. This cost was $3 versus $45 for some generic fix. All you need is a socket wrench of the correct size. Just remove the flapper and float arm for easy access. Don't over tighten the new washer as it may crack the internal bowl flange.

Re: Replace flush valve seal
The American Standard Cadet 3 flowise one piece toilet uses a flapper valve with a soft nylon washer to seal against the water outlet.
Over time this nylon washer develops 'puckers' causing water to seep between the nylon washer and the seat of the flapper. This seepage causes the water level in the tank to drop to a point where the water inlet valve opens to replace the lost water in the tank.
There are two ways to correct this problem:
1. Replace the soft nylon washer on the flapper, or
2. Replace the entire flapper valve.
Hope this solution helps.
