SOURCE: kohler one piece part number 1013282

Hi kayela,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your question is: Just replace the fill valve for kohler one piece andthe fill valve sprays a stream of water out of the top and onto the undersideof the lid is that supposed to happen?

For some reason I can't seem to get the picture up. Nevertheless, the answer is no, it should not be leaking. Did you take a picture of the original before removal? Do you still have the original? Look carefully at the diference between the two. Make sure it's an exact duplicate and isn't missing parts. These one piece toilet parts are expensive but the suplier sometimes makes mistakes. You can only solve this problem if they match.

Feel free contact me again!

SOURCE: toilet tank fill valve sprays water towards lid

Hi bpmorr1,

It may be that the fill tube has come disconnected . It runs from the top of the fill valve to the overflow. The overflow is the tube that runs up the middle of the tank. The fill tube runs from the top of the fill valve to the top of the overflow tube. Kohler has a little clip that can sometimes come undone and cause spraying.


If that doesn't do it, turn the water off to the toilet and take off the tank lid. Partially open valve ( Slowly). Locate where spray is coming from. If it is in the area on top of the fill valve then yes, buy anew one. ( Fluidmaster )

SOURCE: toilet fill runs periodically works well but wastes water

Sounds like your flapper is leaking causing the water in the tank to lower until it triggers the fill valve. Replace the flapper (they're cheap and wear out easily).

SOURCE: Kohler one-piece has no flushing power

Don't flush more water! Trash the toilet and replace it with a toilet that uses less water and flushes efficiently; practically every manufacturer makes a dual flush or eco model. Spend your money on a good toilet rather than paying for and wasting water every day.

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 toilet keeps running. I tried to adjust the float with a phillips but that did not work. There is slight leaking into the chamber over the top.


If there is a continual leak in to the toilet bowl you will likely need to replace the flush valve or the toilet flapper.

As a first step try try cleaning the sealing surface of the flush valve to se if the flapper will seat and make a seal.

If this does not work and the flapper is visibly detioriated and breaking down shut off the water supply, remove the toilet flapper and visit your local plumbing supply store to purchase a suitable replacement. Install the new flapper, turn on water supply.

These illustrated instruictions may also assist:

Although less likely, if the sealing surface of the flush valve is damaged or detioriated proceed with replacement of the flush valve. Again turn off water supply and follow the instructions set out here:

http://www.danco.com/HowTo/How-To-Replace-a-Flush-Valve

If there is not a leak in to the toilet bowl and the water flow does not shut off completely, then water is flowing through the fill valve and the overflow pipe and you may need to adjust the float and float rod to allow clsoure of the fill valve. See here:

I have the Kohler toilet with the top actuator, it flushes fine but won't stop running. If I lift the tank top I'm making the toilet flush again. Can this be fixed or do i have to replace the whole system?


(Problem 1) if you can see the water running in the bowl it's a good chance that the flappers warn. you'll have to look at the angle where the light hits the water. The water will be rippling where the top of the water meets the inside of the bowl edge.
For more info on how a toilet works = http://www.aplumbers.com/residential/toilet
solution 1
1. tank the tank lid off.
2. flush, the rubber thing that comes up and allows the water to go to the bowl is the flapper 3. remove 4. replace that should fix it.

problem 2 it could be the water levels to high.
(solution 2)
1. tank tank lid off.
2. if the waters flowing over the long tube in the center and down then the water level is too high 3. adjust the level either it will have a ball **** or a float in either case a ball **** adjusts by a screw on the fill valve. the float has a either a metal rod w/ a pinch clamp or a plastic long screw type thing. 4. adjust water level . 5. lift the flapper to allow a little water out til fill valve kicks on then release handle til valve stops . 6. just keep re adjusting til you get the water level right there should be a molded in line for the level on the back of the tank.

Water squirts from tank while filling


Take lid off and check that the fill tube is in place. If so flush with lid off to see were the water is squirting from, be prepared to clean up water...If you can, do a slight flush. If there is water coming from any where but the bottom of fill valve and the fill tube you may need to replace the fill valve. In my experience, the fill tube is dissconected.

New water valve makes ahigh pitched whistling


I had exactly the same problem. Just turn down the water pressure @ the valve on the water inlet line. While you have the toilet lid off, you may want to remove the fill valve (1/2 turn counterclockwise on the plastic nut attached to the water-in line), and clean the rubber diaphrams (there are 2). They will sometimes get gritty and this will cause some fill noises and leaking.
