Check your flapper and run your finger around where it seats to make sure there no ridges or cracks. Sometimes the flapper is off center and it will do that. Some other times the water valve that fills the toilet can stick. If it's the water valve change it with a Fluid Master all in one (valve & ballcock assembly) You can adjust the water level right on the assembly for how many litres of tank water before installation. They are very easy to install and alot of unnecessary adjustments will be avoided compared to the old ballcock style.
<p>If you are having<b> trouble with the temperatures</b> of your <b>gas hot water heater</b> fluctuating too much, or after <b>changing the thermocouple</b> of your gas <b>hot water heater</b> then you may need to change the complete <b>gas valve and thermostat assembly</b>. Also if you have changed the <b>thermocouple</b> and the pilot still will not stay lit, then the gas valve could be bad or the <b>ECO (Emergency Cutout)</b> may have activated and is open. This is a onetime device and cannot be replaced.<br />
<p>These instructions are for the older style <b>gas valve and thermostat combination</b>. These commonly have a large red knob that adjusts the temperature of the water. Also note that the burner tube nut for <b>natural gas</b> is right hand thread, but if you have <b>LP or propane gas</b> the burner tube nut is left hand thread.<br />
<p>The newer <b>gas valve thermostat combinations</b> that have come out recently are similar, but they have a well in the tank that the sensor slides into.

With this type of <b>gas valve and thermostat unit </b>the tank does not need to be drained, but most of the rest of the change out is similar.<br /><br />To change a <b>gas hot water heater thermostat</b> you will need to first buy a new gas valve for your <b>hot water heater</b>.

When water is heated the water will increase in volume. The thermal expansion tank in a boiler heating system is there to allow the extra volume of water some place to go. It also holds enough water to fill the void back up when the water cools.
The water expansion tank is a necessary item in heating systems. It also can cause problems if they do not work correctly. Some of the problems caused by a faulty expansion tank are:
The boiler relief valve will be constantly dripping or blowing off if the tank is totally full of water and does not have the air cushion needed to counteract the increased volume of water as it is heated.
Air can be introduced into the system if the tank does not hold sufficient volume of water to keep the system full as it cools.
If fresh water is introduced into the system frequently the tank will rot out from the inside out.
One of the main things to remember is that a faulty boilerexpansion tank can make other things like the relief valve look faulty when it reality it is not the problem. A bad expansion water tank or a bad pressure reducing valve can make the relief valve look bad. Or actually cause it to need replacement. Check everything out carefully before deciding what pieces need to be replaced. If go about just changing parts without a through investigation first you may be changing parts for a long time till you find the right one. http://www.fixya.com/support/r3705970-heating_circulating_water_pump_problems
You need to adjust the float. Or, you can buy the complete inexpensive float valve assembly at Lowes or Home Depot and can install it in less than 5 minutes. Turn off the water supply, drain the tank, sop up the remaining water in the tank or put a pan under the tank opening for the next step, remove the valve assembly and float and install the new valve assembly with the float included. Turn on the water supply and set the water level adjustment valve to about 1/4 inch below the stand pipe overflow drain. This is done by the float assembly. Turn on the water supply. This completes the change-out.
I had the same problem one time with my toilet tank, the answer is to put some silicone on the seal washer between the take and bowl assembly and to use a level on the tank to tighten it just enough to be level and not leak.

To change a gas hot water heater thermostat you will need to first buy a new gas valve for your hot water heater. The gas vaive and the thermostat are integrated into one unit.
To replace the thermostat on a gas hot water heater you must follow these procedures....
1. Turn off the incoming water and drain the water heater.
2. remove the pilot tube, the burner gas tube and the thermocouple from the gas valve. Turn off the gas line and remove from the gas valve.
3. get a pump pliers or a wrench in behind the gas valve and turn the whole assembly CCW to remove it from the tank.
4. After appliying pipe dope or tape to the new gas valve threads, turn the new gas valve into the tank by turning in a CW direction. Be careful not to damage the small wires to the ECO. They are the little red wires on the back. If you break them the assembly is irreparably damaged.
5. reinstall the gas line, thermocouple, burner tube, and the pilot tube to the gas valve.
6. Fill tank with water. Make sure to open a hot water faucet and purge all air from the tank.
7. Check for leaks where the gas line hooks up with soapy water.
8. Relight pilot light and check operation.
9. Set the new temperature setting to a medium setting and then adjust the temperature to your likeing from there and adequate time for heating completely.
The part that the tank sits on, there is a round rubber seal(#40), is it in place? One of the rods in the handle asm. may be holding the Reservoir Assem.(39) down letting the water flow.
Is the valve at the bottom of the bottom ok and not stuck, oush in and let out, if it is moving up and down then it is ok.
