If its a metal arm connecting the ballcock shut off valve to the float flush it and bend the metal so the float is lower. if u can adjust the ball **** lower then do so. the shut off is not shutting off cause the float isnt going high enough. and the excess is going down the overflow.

How do I stop water running into pan after toilet has been flushed &refilled.


If there is water still running into the toilet bowl, there is a problem with your flapper or flush valve. The most common problem, and least expensive to fix, is the flapper has gone bad and is allowing water to escape past it. Replace the flapper and the water should stop running. If not, it is possible the flush valve or one of the seals holding it to the tank has gone bad and needs replaced. Try replacing the whole flush valve. They come in a kit that includes the valve, flapper, and seals.

My Toto toilet runs after a flush. If I turn the water supply off for a day or so it will stop running but will do it again after a couple of days


If your Toto toilet has some sort of flapper, it may not be seating properly or may be defective.

The water in the tank continues to leak out and the tank has to continue to refill. I have replaced the flapper, I have taken the tank off the toilet and check gasket alignment. The tank does not leak...


There are only a coulple of places that the toilet could leak or, overflow and give you this problem. When you replaced the flapper valve, did it have an extra piece of rugger on it? Universal flappers have a round piece on them that are designed to fit over the overflow tube. If you flapper had this piece and you don't have need for it, you need to cut that out, if the flapper "hooks" to the overflow assembly. Leaving that piec on can contort the shape of the flapper and make it so it won't seal. If you are noticing constant movement(slight swirl) in the bowl, make sure the back tank is not constantly overflowing into overflow tube. If this is the case, your water level is too high. You will either need to adjust the water level and/or replace the fill valve. If you can hear the toilet running or leaking, push down on the flapper, if it stops, you have a problem with the flapper and/or the chain adjustment. When you install the flapper, you have ton make sure the chain is long enough to let the flapper fall and seal but, not so long that it can tangle or get between the the flapper and it's seal below it.

Toilet doesn't turn off after flush


The Kohler Cimarron is one of the most popular and reliable toilets out there. (My Favorite). However, depending on the hardness of the water and if you use cleaner tabs in the tank, these factors can lead to a malfunction.
The first thing you should do is hold the flapper (rubber seal inside the tank that releases the water down to the bowl) down with your hands for a few seconds after a flush and see if the toilet stops running. Sometimes the flapper doesn't seal properly therefore the fill valve keeps working non stop. Stopping the fill while holding the flapper down will confirm that your flapper needs to be changed.
If this doesn't work then try this....
The other common problem with a running toilet is with the fill valve itself. There is an attached float on the fill valve that goes up and down depending on the water level. Once the water level rises, it rises the float, and the float tells the fill valve to stop filling the tank. While the toilet is running (hissing), try raising the float all the way up with your hand and see if it stops. If it stops but not consistently with every attempt, then you will need to change the fill valve. I believe the Fluidmaster 400A is the replacement model.

Replace flapper valve in ultramax


Your Toto has the "G-Max" flush valve system. The Korky/Lavelle folks have a carded replacement flapper #2021BP for it. It is red in color and the only generic flapper that will work on your toilet. While it may look the same, do not confuse it with the blue flapper #2022BP. Known as the PowerMax flapper, the blue color is to distinguish between the two and the flappers are totally toilet specific. Let your fingers do the walking and locate a hardware store near you that carries the Korky/Lavelle brand or it can be ordered online from several places using the part number for your search word.
If the fill valve ever stops filling correctly, the Lavelle "Quiet Fill", #528BP, is what Toto uses in most of their toilets.
