    Now that the water is shut off what about the problem itself. The floor is wet near the intake. The valve itself is not leaking. I suspect that the tube that feeds the bowl is defective. How do I replace it?

When facing the valve turn it clockwise to close. As always procede with caution.

    If it is the tube that feeds the bowl it is small flexible tubing. You May have to get an entire kit with the tube in it.



    If it is the supply line from the valve to the tank just buy a flexible one ( Metal braided ) and install. Do not overtighten the flexible line.

How do I get the water to stop filling the tank on my toto ST794S toilet?


there should be a screw adjustment on the ballcock or fill assembly...screw that down some to adjust...that regulates your tank water level....that screw goes in or out to adjust...one or other should do the trick...may have to do this a few times to get proper adjustment...good luck..

After flushing, the toilet keeps running. However, if I turn off the water supply, and then turn back on, the toilet stops running until the next time it is flushed. Toilet makes a


It could be the type of flap you are using. I would suggest you try a different shaped flapper (a cone would work best) and if that doesn't do it, put a new kit into the unit, because it could be that the float system is sticking causing it to continue running.

Sounds like something in the floating device is bad so it doesn't shut off when filled. We just replaced our flush valve on ours because the toilet keep running.

Toilet keeps running after it fills up.how do i fix it?


Inside the tank where the water line connects is the fill valve. If the float is sticking on something that would be one problem. If the float is not triggering the valve to turn the water off then you would need to replace the fill valve unit. If you dont have time to get to it right away then you could turn the water off and on to the toilet until you have time to replace the fill valve unit.

Toilet fills up and water keeps on running (toto 6.0 lpt)


If any toilet runs (continues to fill) when it is not being used, there are basically 3 reasons. the most obvious is that water is leaking out all over the floor so the fill valve thinks the tank has not reached its volume of water. Next, the rubber device that keeps the water in the tank when not being used (most commonly called a flapper) has warped from time or chemicals in the water (NOTE:chlorine eats rubber for breakfast daily), and and allows water to seep past it, which lowers the water level and triggers the fill valve to come back on to top things off.
The third reason is because there is particulat in the fill valve or mineral buildup and internally it doesnt always properly seal so it can run intermittently or all the time.
All the parts on the TOTO ultramax are warranteed for 5 years so keep that in mind if it applies.
Remove the tank lid when you hear the fill vave working and look at the water level. If the water level is below the top of the white plastic tube that the flapper is connected to (often called the overflow tube), then you have a bad flapper. If the water level is going over the top of the tube then you have a defective fill valve.
Out of warranty fill valves can easily be replaced with a Lavelle "Quiet fill" available at most hardware or plumbing stores or online.
This valve is what Toto uses in most of their toilets and it is only the removeable cap that is different (subliminal advertising maybe)

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.

I purchased a Toto Aquia II Dual Flush Toilet, around a year ago. No problems until now. The toilet won't flush. It doesn't appear to be running at all.


If this is one of those models that most people have, the valve that shuts the incoming water off when the tank is filled is probably bad. It only costs about 8-10 dollars to replace. This valve is actually a stem or tree shaped device.
