SOURCE: my toilet runs constantly

How old is the toilet? Might have lime buildup in the housing that's keeping the float from raising completely. The whole assembly is relatively inexpensive at Wal-Mart, and very easy to change. It would probably be less hassle than trying to fix the old one. I found that out after wasting a lot of time trying to mix my old one. :-)

SOURCE: how do I adjust tank fill valve to increase water

There are many different fill valves out there so it would be a little hard to tell you how to adjust your particular one without knowing the brand and type of the fill valve.
So I will give you a generic adjustment.
Look for someway/something to adjust your float in the toilet tank.
There should be a screw, moveable metal, something that will adjust your float.
Once you locate the adjustment, you can then adjust your water level in the toilet tank.
Adjust the water level in the toilet tank to be about a 1/4-1/2 inch before it flows out of the overflow tube when the water shuts off.
Good Luck, I hope this helped.
Please rate me, Thanks

SOURCE: I need to know exactly how to adjust the toilet

Most of the HooverLine fill valve have an adjustment screw on the top of the valve. It only takes about a half turn to change the level. Hope this helps.

Testimonial: "Thank you. You are correct. The plastic screw on top of the valve did the trick. At first I went to far with the screw and the tank water level went too low. But I got it just right now. Thanks. "

There should be a screw on top, usualy plastic that once flushed can easily be turned to adjust the tank level. Usualy half turn at a time will make a pretty substantial change. I hope this helps.

Model 60-7000M. All works except foot rest. It will not close. Help!


Not sure what you mean by foot "rest." If it is presser foot, then you may not have the correct presser foot for your machine (basically, there are 3 types--low shank, high shank, & slant shank). Usually, there is also a pressure adjustment for the presser foot that increases the amount of pressure applied to the fabric and feed dogs. Consult your owner manual. Pressure adjustment is usually either a dial, a plunger type on the top left of the machine (pushing down increases the pressure--push down on the outer ring to release it), or a screw at the very top of the presser foot bar (sometimes under the top lid).

How do I adjust the Moen M5350 assembly to raise the water level in my toilet tank


To adjust the height of the fill valve, twist the threaded shank in or out of the valve body. The height of the Fluidmaster 400a valve adjusts from 9 to 14 inches. On some models a clicking noise will be heard when adjusting the height, this is normal.

How do you adjust the clip so the water level increases?


You don't adjust the clip as it attaches to the pipe to automatic turn off the water at the right level, but your water may be set at to high a level that it overflows into the bowl. When that happens you can do 2 things to correct it: 1 at the wall where the cold water comes out to the toilet you can adjust it to slow the supply of water to a little less. 2. You can adjust the screw inside tank to tighten (turning screw one way) to adjust water level to shut off quicker or adjust tank screw the other way to fell take water up higher. Flush the toilet and observe the power of the flush. Allow the tank to fill until the water shuts off. Repeat the procedure to adjust the float and water level, if desired.

My slow close toilet seat now slams shut. Are there any adjustments I can make to correct this problem?


WOW! Slow-close toilet seats. What will "they" think of next, to pick your pocket?

Slow-open mechanisms such as cassette players and top-loading DVD players use a special type of grease to achieve that effect.

The screen on the laptops uses a friction mechanism based on a "clutch-spring" with enough holding power to keep the display in the position selected.
This "clutch-spring" is factory adjusted so it neither slips under the weight of the laptop screen, nor is so tight that extra force is required to close the laptop.
These things do wear out, and as a rule are not user serviceable.

Can you adjust it? Good question!
Can you adjust it so it works? Ahah!
My rule of thumb: If it's already broken, how much more broken can it get?

Therefore, my conclusion is that the toilet seat's slow-close mechanism is factory set at the point where it will neither slam down nor stop half-way, but glide down gently until it's closed.

An interesting added feature would be for the toilet to recognise who's about to use it, and for what, select the seat position be it up or down, and then regulate the water volume needed to flush.
Also, it could flush itself once the lid is fully closed, to avoid or minimize the dreaded "toilet flush mist". arrrghhh!!!

Toto toilet does not flush properly - insufficient water to make it flush properly - need to pour water down toilet for it to flush. There is not any kind of blockage.


Check water level in tank for proper height it should be about 5/8 close to top of stand pipe in tank or it should have a mark on it wher it should be.


You can adjust the flush valve to increase water height.

Not enough water in the bowl


The fill valve probably has a float that surrounds the pole that extends from the bottom of the tank. The float usually has a metal rod that comes down with a clip to adjust the float. Move that clip up so that the float sits higher-this should add more water to the tank.
