This means your floater is too low, what you need to do is adjust it so it sits higher,

if you have the kind with the ball on the end then you simply need to raise the ball alittle and adust the screw,

if you have the kind with no ball, then there is a little floater attatched to the fill valve, kind of looks like a slide hammer, (if you know what that is) just lift up on that there should be an adjuster screw somewhere close to it lift up a little and adjust where its needed..
anyone at lowes in the plumbing department can elaborate. and hopefully make it more vivid for you

Toto neorest leaking & low pressure wand


Sounds like the washer in the shutoff at the wall has failed and is partially blocking the fill pipe. Some rubber from it may have gotten into the toilet valve internally. With the wall valve closed, try to remove the connection pipe to the toilet. If you can do it without water continuing to flow out of the wall shut off...then remove the pipe from the wall shut off. Flush the toilet. Now, apply air pressure to the rubber hose the goes into the overflow pipe. That may clear the valve in the tank and solve both problems. If you cannot stop the water at the wall shut off, close the water valve feeding the house. Remove static water pressure by opening the cold water a the kitchen sink faucet. Now you can open the wall shutoff valve and replace the washer and clean it out....

Toilet takes a long time to fill up after flushing


Perhaps the shut off valve is not fully open, or constricted. Try opening and closing the shut off valve to loosen any sediment. Otherwise, replace shut off valve.

My daughters TOTO toilet kepted running so she turned off the supply line before she went to bed. when she woke up the next moring and turned the water back on, now the tank won't refill. How do I know...


There could be several reasons why it won't refill. It could be the fill valve, which can be replaced with a standard fill valve located at any hardware store. The more likely reason is the stem inside the shut-off of the toilet has broken off inside the valve. This is very common when a valve is older and usually doesn't get shutoff. If this is the case, a new shut-off valve must be soldered on.

Toilet keeps running water in back tank keeps running over top of drain hole


You don't have to replace, You just need to adjust the fill valve. If you have the ball **** type just tight the top phillips screw. If you have the newer type, close the water valve under the tank and Push down a plastic ring at the bottom of the filling valve, Push down the top of the valve, lift the plastic ring to it's place and open the water valve.

Water fills tank slowly


Check your angle stop ==valve underneath close to the wall see if it's open all the way if it is and you still have the same problem then go ahead and shut it off, disconnect it from the toilet and the valve and see if there is anything stuck in the hose (a gasket maybe) if nothing blocks the hose then. Reconnect the hose starting from the valve put a bucket on the other side to catch the water and open the valve as if to clean the hose. After you do that reconnect the hose and try again if still does not work properly then you have to replace the fill valve (the tower looking stuff inside the tank)

if it works for you, don't forget to rate me

I have an American Stadard Toilet that is only 2 years old. The toilet will not stop running. Could you give me some trouble shooting ideas?


There's a lot of variety in the works in the toilet tank. Assuming this is not a pressure-assisted toilet-----First understand the three valves are: 1. The shutoff valve - on the supply line coming into the toilet tank. 2. The fill valve - inside the tank, opens with the float descends, closes when the tank fills up. 3. The flush valve - inside the tank on the bottom. Common old style is a flapper on a pivot. Yours may operate straight up and down rather than on a pivot.
Three very common problems are---- 1. The chain that connects the handle to lift the flush valve is getting caught, not allowing the flush valve to close. 2. There is problem with the flush valve being able to get a good seal when it closes - could be debris or misalignment. 3. The fill valve is not closing when the tank is full, could need adjustment or there is debris preventing the valve to seat. . Here's are some steps to diagnose---- close the shutoff valve. Wait a few minutes as you watch the level in the tank. If the water level decreases, you have problem with the flush valve. To confirm the fill valve as the problem, turn the shutoff valve back on. Lift up on the float that is supposed to turn off the fill valve. If it shuts off, you should be able to adjust it - most have a +/- plastic adjustment screw. But if raising the float by hand only slows it down, you have problem with the seating of the fill valve - which can sometimes be cleaned, but more often would need to be replaced.
I hope this is helpful. Thanks for using FixYa.

The toilet is only 2 months' old. The water keeps


Remove the top of the water tank.
check to be sure that the flush cover (about in the center of the tank) can close all the way. It seats into a 2 inch hole - and must seat all the way around. If it fails to seat, then the fill valve (on the left side of the tank) will continously let water into the tank.

As a starter experiment, you may try just turning whe water off at the wall shut off. Then inspect the tank to confirm that it is losing water.
If confirmed, then the above solution is correct.
If it is not losing water, then the fill valve is faulty and will need to be replaced (it is allowing water to over flow into the "OverFlow" tube.....

I recommend that you keep the water turned off at the wall until the toilet is needed - and the problem is repaired.

Downstairs toilet won't stop filling, upstairs toilet won't fill


for the upstairs if the valve is fully on there is not much you can do other than replace water service to the house or heaven forbid repipe.Valves usually don't restrict fill volume.But you can take the supply loose from the tank and stick it in a bucket turn the valve on and check the flow.this should narrow it down.Down stairs repair or replace flush valve
