Firstly open the top of the Cistern(Where water is held)There are two most common Cistern internals ie;Ball-O-Stop(Ball on a arm connecting to valve). This one is easy, you just bend the arm downwards in the centre so that the ball shuts the valve at a lower level; The other type has a shaft(plastic) with a thread on it, connecting it to a "small bowl" that lifts up as water enters the cistern. To adjust the water level in cistern you have to turn the thread(Shaft) lowering the "small bowl" wich will shut the inlet to the cistern at a lower level. Hope this helps

Can I adjust the water level in the bowl?


Hi Jeff:
Two things affect the water level in the bowl:
1) - The maximum height is determined by the siphon. To see if that is where you are, slowly pour water into the bowl. If the level stays the same, that's the maximum height. If it increases, you may be able to "tweak" the trickle tube. (next step)
2) - "Trickle tube" - My term as that's a good description. Lift the lid off the storage tank. If you look into it you will see a vertical tube, open at the top. A small tube should be clipped on to it so that when you flush it, water from the small tube flows into the big tube. That will be "trickling" into the bowl to fill it to the top of the siphon level. Sometimes this small tube can be installed so that it misses the big tube so the bowl does not get filled to the maximum.
- Hope this helps.
Cheers..

When i turn on the washer it won't start& water keeps flowing into washing machine. does the water flows or not suppose to flow into the washing machine from the inlet valve?


water into a washing machine is controlled by a tube in the side of the bowl up to a pressure switch
as the water level rises in the bowl, pressure in the switch is built up until it overcomes the setting that you have made for a water level on the wash size selection switch
at this point it turns off the inlet solenoid switch and starts the wash cycle
If the water solenoid is burnt out then water will continue to come in and over flow the bowl but it should be washing as well
If the water is not stopping then check for a disconnected hose to the switch or ma hose full of water
failing all that get a washing machine mechanic in

Ive replaced 3 toilet fill valve with 440a Fluid master fill valves height is good water level good.After a while it sounds like there is leak by from all toilet.Flappers have been replaced. What coul


check the overflow pipe in the cistern tank as some fill valves do not stop completely but allow input of water after the noise has stopped. This allows the water level to rise up and the water to flow out into the toilet bowl. Reduce the water level height by adjusting the cut off level and when the water rises past the new level the increase pressure on the valve will shut it off.

When I flush my toilet, the water in the bowl rises all the way to the top like it is going to overflow but stops just short of over flowing. Then it drains out but very LITTLE water stays in the bowl. ...


You have some type of obstruction in your drain. Try a plunger when the toilet is still fairly full. The reason the water level is so low is the toilet was finished filling when the water went all the way down. a714b1a.jpg
If you can't get it open with a plunger, a closet auger works well 7163d19.jpg

Please tell me how to get more water in my toilet bowl..not the tank..the bowl please..thankyou. It is a Jacuzzi Era Elongated bowl.


The water level in the bowl is determined by the built in trap in the back of the bowl. Water is allowed to enter the toilet and it then "over flows" the p trap in the back when flushed. Once it's flowing, it syphons the water out of the bowl. While the tank is re-filling, a small portion of water should be running down the overflow from the small hose clamped onto the overflow This rinses the inside of the bowl, as well as helps-refill the bowl. Be sure that hose is directed inside the overflow tube. To see what the max water level in the bowl can be, add some water from a cup or glass. Once it's full you can keep adding and it won't get any higher. This will be the max level you can expect.

Tiolet not flushing right. Water not coming down the side of the bowl when flushing and 90 percent of the water is gone from the bowl.


1- Check ports out under rim all round bowl.

2-Check tank fill level for required amount to with in 5/8" to top of over flow tube.

3-Make sure 1/4" fill tube is connected to over flow tube. From fill valve to overflow tube.

Below is a few details to go by I hope will be helpful for you to take care of this problem.


Under the rim of the bowl check the ports and make sure they are not stopped up. You can open them up with nail or pin to clean out ports.
Next check tank level and make sure the fill valve has a line run from it to top of the overflow tube. This line allows water to goe to bowl and tank to fill required amount needed.
Water in tank should be within 5/8" to top of over flow tube.

Toto flapper seems ok but toilet keeps slow trickle into the bowl


The water inlet valve should close completely and stop water from coming into the tank before the water level reaches the "small tube." (This is the overflow tube.)

There may be an o-ring or rubber gasket inside the valve that can be replaced. If not, you would have to replace the water inlet valve.
