SOURCE: toilet running and won't stop.....it

When water goes over into overflow tube then that means 2 things.
The rubber flapper at tank bottom is good and does not need replacement at this point.
That leaves 2 possible problems.
1) The flush valve needs to be adjusted so water turns off sooner.
Flush valve lets water into the tank.
For example if you have a float ball on end of brass rod, just bend the brass rod so the float sits lower in the water.
If you have the 'fluidmaster' then a float rides up and down with water level. There is a metal rod with a metal clip. Squeeze the metal clip and move it downward on the metal rod.
2) If water will not turn off after adjusting flush valve, then replace flush valve.
Local hardware store sells the part and can help with instructions.
You need a crescent wrench or large adjustable pliers.
Plumber can also install the flush valve.

Roca dual push button Toilet will only flush when holding the push button continuously down until the cistern is empty. It won't completely flush like it should when pressing the button once.


allow tank to fill a little more by adjusting fill valve. When there's not enough water flowing from tank the stopper can over-power the water flow and cause the flush to stop by re-sealing.

Backed Up Kitchen Double Sink Fix with Garbage Disposal- Quick and Simple Fix


Here's how to fix a backed-up double sink (running water down one side/sink causing dirty water to well up out of the drain on the other side, with slow or no emptying). Note that this quick-and-easy tip only works if you have a functioning garbage disposal.

What you will need: a stopper, and possibly a clean toilet plunger (the cup-shaped kind that stands on its own, not the kind that is bulb-shaped)

Stopper up the side in which the water is rising up out of the drain. Make sure you hold down the stopper as well; if you don't, the stopper will shoot up on a geyser of dirty water when you perform the next step. Once you have the stopper in place and are holding it down, run water on the other side/sink and turn on the garbage disposal. Once you have done that for a reasonable amount of time, shut off the garbage disposal and water, and unstopper* the other side. Run water on both sides to make sure everything is draining properly. Doing this should save you the hassle of taking the pipes apart or plunging one side repeatedly to clear the clog.

*Note: If the stopper is stuck, place the plunger so it completely covers the opening the stopper is stuck in and give it two good plunges. The plunger should create a vacuum that will suck out the stopper, and is more effective than you trying to pry or pull on it. Do this ONLY after you have shut off the garbage disposal and water.

What is happening is that there is a clog in your pipes. When water goes down one side, it hits the clog somewhere in the pipes, has nowhere to go, and gets pushed back up the pipe leading to the other side of the double sink. By stopping up the side without the garbage disposal, you are creating a barrier preventing the water from coming back up. At the same time, the garbage disposal running on the other side is forcing the water down. Since the water now cannot escape up the stoppered side, it has nowhere to go but down, forcing the clog out with it.

How do you stop a power flush toilet from constantly running?


You'll have to see if the water is leaking past the flush stopper or into the overflow tube. The tube is the little pipe where water drains if the tank is filled too high. The flush stopper is a rubber flapper mounted on the bottom of the overflow tube. If water is running into the tube, then the flush valve may be stuck, so shake it up and down (gently) and hopefully it will be freed. If water is not running into the tube, then reach down and try to seat the flapper stopper to see if something was lodged there to keep it from seating all the way. Would be a simple fix either way.

MY TOILET FLUSH VALVE SEEMS TO BE CLOGED BUT I CLEANED IT IT WILL FLUSH BUT WONT FILL TANK YOU CAN HEAR WATER WANTING TO COME OUT PLEASE HELP


Hi Juan
Unfortunately we can't see what you can see. The problem must be right in front of you but you are missing it. Eg Parts / Seals in backwards.
If you can't figure it out and it's that urgent then call a plumber.
Good Luck

Toilet won't flush


If you lift the lid off of the back of the toilet, you will see a chain that will probably be laying on the bottom of the water tank. One end connects to the rubber stopper and the other end connects to the bac side of the flushing lever. There should be 3 or 4 holes in the lever that you can connect the chain to. Once you get the chain connected, try to flush. You may have to adjust the chain by placing it in different holes until it flushes properly.

Good Luck!

We have a Kohler Pres'quille toilet and under the seat where there is little 'lugs' that sit on top of the pan, some of these 'lugs' have broken off. Can you get replacement ones or if...


Another remedy if you can't find the same lugs or stoppers, is go to any hardware or home depot store and get those little plastic stoppers that are felt or adhesive back that is used for the bottom of kitchen chairs so as not to scratch harwood floors, you can use them fo substitute . Also they make small round 1/4 inch plastic little bumps used for home slider window stops. Hope this helps you get that toilet seat up and running , or is that down and running :) mike

Water won't stop running in the tank.


I guess the stopper or whatever that black rubber thinghie down the bottom is called, needs to be replaced.

Wear gloves when taking it off.

The lever (handle) to flush the toilet does not rise after it is pushed down, causing the toilet to run. One has to push the lever (handle)up after the down motion to make it function properly.


I had this issue as well with my toilet. My chain was unattached and had been sucked down the drain under the stopper valve preventing the toilet stopper valve from completely closing and causing the water to continually run. After re-attaching the chain I noticed when I flushed the toilet that the handle did not rise again until I manually pushed it up. After readjusting the chain to a tighter position where the chain was not floating at all but instead holding the stopper valve in place I again flushed to check the reaction. This fixed the issue of the water continually running and also the handle not resetting itself properly.

Here is the steps I took to resolve my issue:

Step 1: Remove the lid off of the tank.

Step 2: Check to see if the chain coming from the Toilet Handle to the Stopper Valve is loose, unattached, or broken.

Step 3: Flush the toilet and check to see if the problem has been fixed. If not readjust the chain to a different position and flush again.

Step 4: If all is resolved replace the tank lid.

Other possible things to check:
Check the Float Ball to see if it's Half-way or more submerged in the water. If it is it needs to be replaced.

I hope this helps!
