SOURCE: Korky anti-siphon. Tank water slowly

either the fill valve is running and water is draining into the bowl via the overflow tube in the tank or the flapper is bad (or foreign matter) and it is allowing water to escape into the bowl slowly...causing the fill valve to run every few minutes or so. hope this helps but if you need anything else just text me here:)

SOURCE: Korky anti-siphon. Tank water slowly

I put the korky fill valve in and it was hissing and water was flowing slowly into the bowl. I had put a new korky flap on as well. So I bought a fluidmasted perfor MAX flapper and installed it and it solved the problem!

After my toilet fill valve shuts off, water continues sipping into tank slowly. This causes water continuously overflow through overflow tube.


check that the fill valve was installed correctly
adjust the float level so that when full the cistern water level is around 1/2" below the over flow pipe end
what you have now is that the inlet water is not being shut off correctly and the water is still coming in and flowing out of the overflow

Toilet Flapper drops too soon and causes incomplete flush. Replaced with new red Korky, and adjusted chain tighter AND looser.


Try adjusting the water level in the tank. Most flappers close as the water in the tank flows out to a certain level. Try allowing more water to come in to the tank. I doubt the weight of the chain has any effect on it closing too early.

Why does the Water valve keep running water when bowl is full?


Because the shut off point is above the overflow tube. You will need to either adjust the arm or bend the float end of the arm downward to make the arm end swing higher to reach the shut off point prior to water overflowing into the tube.

I have a hissing toilet. My kohler 4708 fills up, and once this happens, the left side of the tank has a constant hissing sound. When I turn off the water it stops.


Your valve inside the tank has worn down and not allowing the water to stop running. Does the water run over the top of the overflow. If so, then adjust your inlet water to a lower level so it will cut off. If that is ok, then likely the flapper is worn out and needs to be replaced.

Korky anti-siphon. Tank water slowly drops, accompanied by a hissing sound. Then, after dropping about 1/2 inch, it refills. Wha?

Korky anti siphon 528 is leaking, water is high and leaking in drain pipe


If the water is reaching the tank overflow tube, the float valve is not stopping it fully. If the valve is new or not too old and you have instructions or know how to disassemble it, you can flush it to ensure there is no debris in the valve or on the seat. Although the manufacturers recommend this, I have never found anything on the seat.
If you can't do this, a new float valve assembly must be installed.

My toto drake which has the g-max valve make a high pitch squeal when the toilet is flushed and also when it is finished filling. So at the start and stop.... Is this a defective valve or is there...


I had the same problem and solved it. You need to replace the valve with a Korky 528t replacement valve, which is very quiet. The gmax valve is inherently squeaky and there is no fixing it. You can get the 528t on the internet as it is unusual to find it in a store (don't get the 528 which won't work properly on toto). Also you must use the replacement overflow tube that is packaged with the 528t. The original tube is too narrow and the bowl won't fill properly. The replacement takes 10 minutes.

I have a Toto toilet with a G-max valve. It does


Your local home center should sell a "Korky Model No. R528" to fix the valve without removing it. It's the cap that contains the washer. Replacement is easy and takes just a few minutes. Once you have the cap off it's a good idea to flush the sediment from the valve body by holding a large cup upside down over the valve and turning the water on for a few seconds. The cup will keep the water in the tank.
