Question about Home
It drips or even runs slowly. If I turn off water supply it continues to drip for minutes and then stops. The amount of water in bowl diminishes when I turn off the water. Why? If the water supply remains on, the toilet makes a sound as though it is topping off the fill every so often. Also how do I adjust the water level in the tank. I see the device but do not know how to work it to lower the level which is very near the top of the overflow tube.Thank you!
Chances are the flapper is leaking. Thats causing the random refilling as the tank slowly loses water into the bowl.
Replace the flapper with only the best available at your supply house. the cheap ones tend to leak even when new. The good ones are less than 8 bucks most places.
If your fill valve has the float ball, there should be a screw right on top of the fill valve at the end of the rod holding the ball to adjust the water level.
Closckwise lowers the level.
Be carefull not to break the plastic ones. If the adjustment is all the way in or does not work, you will need to replace the fill valve.
You could also try bending the metal rod holding the ball, but only as a last resort.

I had same issue but with different solution... I noticed that the rubber fill tube was rubbing against the inside of the flapper assembly just enough to prevent flapper from fully sealing after flushing. I routed the rubber fill tube so that it doesn't touch or impede the flapper valve.
