Question about Toto Carlyle 1-piece Elongated Bowl Toilet

1 Answer

When refilling, valve shuts on and off every few seconds.

I'm concerned about this because of the force of the on off an the stress that this may be creating on the pipes. The on/off is really quite violent and pipes shake.

It sounds like the float/water sensing valve is bouncing

turn the chrome supply shut off valve all the way off then open slightly to reduce the amount of water coming into the tank It may take longer for the tank to fill but should eliminate the banging

Good Luck

How do I increase the water flow into the tank of a Verona toilet

1.) Check to make sure that the water shut-off valve is all the way open (the water valve a.k.a. the shut-off valve is located behind the toilet near the wall or the floor, depending upon installation placement.) The water supply line attaches to it and feeds up into the refill valve assembly inside the toilet tank.
2.) Check the float assembly or the refill valve assembly, make sure it hasn't bound up by getting caught on another part inside the tank.
3.) Check the water level to make sure that it sits about 1 inch below the overflow tube in the middle of the tank. If the water is lower, adjust the float inside the tank to raise the water level. For models that have a ball float, turn the screw on top of the fill valve clockwise to raise the water level. For models that contain a cylinder float valve attached to the fill valve, squeeze the clip on the side of the float and pull the float up until the water reaches the desired level.

Not refilling

1st thing to verify is H2O pressure at the connection of supply line to tank. Turn vavle off at wall, loosen the supply nut, gently pull supply line free. Using a catch basin(bowl, cup,etc) point supply line into basin and SLOWLY open valve to verify pressure.(have small towel to catch any spillage) If pressure is there, reconnect line, snug it and turn on valve. Verify that float is not stuck, gently force down if necessary. If this does not begin the filling, some trash has become lodged inside and will require replacement. However, if you feel comfortable in your skills, you may try to remove screws or otherwise disassemble the valve and check or clear and debris.

Toilet takes a long time to fill up after flushing

Perhaps the shut off valve is not fully open, or constricted. Try opening and closing the shut off valve to loosen any sediment. Otherwise, replace shut off valve.

Kohler santa rosa fills, shuts off, a little water leaks from tank, toilet refills and repeats the leakage into the drain.

There is a rubber seal at the bottom of the flush valve that covers the openning at the bottom of the tank. If this rubber seal has perished slightly then it will leak water into the toilet bowl. This rubber seal need to be replaced to form a proper seal to prevent water leak.

My daughters TOTO toilet kepted running so she turned off the supply line before she went to bed. when she woke up the next moring and turned the water back on, now the tank won't refill. How do I know...

There could be several reasons why it won't refill. It could be the fill valve, which can be replaced with a standard fill valve located at any hardware store. The more likely reason is the stem inside the shut-off of the toilet has broken off inside the valve. This is very common when a valve is older and usually doesn't get shutoff. If this is the case, a new shut-off valve must be soldered on.

My Crane Toilet is several years old. When the tank is refilling following a flush, water sprays in front of the white towwer with some force. Sometimes the water level gets higher than the overflow...

On a toilet that old I would recommend that you change the flush valve and float assembly to a newer version. One I particullarly like is the 400A Fluidmaster.It is simply to install and incorporates the flush valve and float valve into one unit.
They are simple to install as long as you can shut the water supply off. The instructions are printed on the inside of the box so just follow them closely. The only thing I add to there instructions is to use a small amount of silicone caulk around both sides of rubber washer that goes on the base of the valve.Adjust height on valve before you install it to get it close. The final float level can be set with spring clip on float rod.
I have been useing these valves for many years and they will work on most toilets and they are almost maintainance free.Added plus they are inexpensive. Thank you.
