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!

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.

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.

How to fix a dripping toilet


if the fluidmaster,itself is leaking, there is a rubber disk in the base of fluidmaster, replace disk. however, i can almost promise you the dripping you hear is from a bad flapper. replace with KORKY brand flapper. buy the basic black one, with no water saving gadgets on it.you will see cheaper black ones, but get the KORKY

My Crane toilet is slowly leaking into the bowl. It is not the flapper (which I replaced) and doesn't seem to be from high water pressure. Could it be the seal?


Check your over flow pipe in the tank to see if you need to lower the water level amount in the tank. If thats not it, it could be the seal thats under your flapper between the tank and base. Simple fix just alittle time consuming

We can hear the faint sound of water running - sounds more like a hiss - but can't see where to make an adjustment.


The PROBLEM is not an adjustment. There is a water hiss because there is a leak. It sounds like the flapper is slowly leaking water into the bowl. Drop some food coloring into the tank, wait a while and see if there comes color in the bowl. If so you need to replace the flapper (simple to do).

Kohler two peice toilet the water just circles and will not flush.there is plenty of water in holding tank that run through


These models need to have a flush valve flapper that has a styrofoam float on the lift chaninof the flapper. Go to hardware store or home improvement store and get a 'Korky brand toilet tank flapper with float 'ball". Cut the rubber ring piece away from the flapper and you don't need it (see cut here marks on flapper). Install flapper and adjust the float fairly close to the flapper.
When the water level drops in the tank and reaches the level of the float on the opne flapper, the flapper quickly closes causing the toilet to have a "surge" of siphon action which forces the water in the bowl to be drawn out.
