    The Toto Drake was extended to 30 seconds before a normal fillup in fast flow. Took the G-max out. Cleaned the side cup out but found no washer that was accesable. Had difficulty putting the white ajestment clip in. The flush and fill seem to be normal know.

    Thank you.

    I've got the same problem. My toilet is a Toto, with elongated bowl (unknown model though) It's two years old. The flapper is red and the refill valve is white on top (Korky)



    Both the tank and bowl refill ok, but there is a delay in the water turning on after a flush. The delay seems to be getting longer and longer with time. This has been going on for the last several months.



    I've made sure the water supply line is open all the way-not sure what else to do?

I am not a plumber but stumbled across the solution on my own. While watching the float during the flush cycle, it was obvious that it was very slow in moving downward along with the water level in the tank. The problem was that the small opening in the float chamber was partially clogged. Using just my fingers, I reached under the float chamber and cleaned off any debris that was blocking the opening underneath the float chamber. Put the float back on, and instantly the problem was solved. The tank fill started immediately after I flushed.

    I have a very new toto and some repairs to the water system in my building has been throwing debris down the line. My problem was the same as above with the same solution, but I would only add a couple clarification notes as I am not a plumber either and I need more generic explanation of the components.

    1 first remove the plastic cover (mine's blue) on the filler valve on the left hand side of the tank. This is done but squeezing the tabs on either side on it and gently pulling up.

    2 remove the float. This is done by once again squeezing the plastic at the pivot point on the valve. The float should just out.

    3 clean the float reservoir including the little plastic drain valve at the bottom. Mine is a little plastic ball that had all kinds of pipe crud in and around it. It looks as though this float is designed so that you can have all kinds of delay options based on the valve at the bottom.

    4 put your float back on by once again squeezing the assembly at the pivot point

    5 put the cover back on.

    Works great again!

There is a washer in the fill valve that probably has debris caught in it. It could also need to be replaced. It's under the cap at the top of the fill valve. Hold the base of the unit with water turned off and lift the small lever up and turn counter clockwise 1/4 turn. Lift off and remove the washer and replace it. With it off, put your hand over the top of the fill valve and turn the water on a little to flush out any debris that might be in the shaft.

Just replace the whole assembly. It only costs 12-15 dollars. Water contains so many minerals that just clog up lines like cholesterol. Just be done with it. It is not worth the effort to try to clean all that out . Plastic is sometimes not very forgiving.

Make sure the fill tube in the tank from the fill valve is in the overflow tibe inside tank. The tube allows bowl to fill with water to correct level.

Water Level Adjustment
1. To adjust, simply turn upper half of valve counter-clockwise to unlock, pull up till water line on valve is level with water line marked in tank, Fig.C then turn clockwise till valve snaps into locked position.
2. Turn on water supply to fill tank.
3. Tamper proof key is optional, and may be used to simply to prevent further adjustment once final setting is achieved. Fig D

TOTO DRAKE flushes then the tank fills, stops, then slowley leaks and the water just runs on and on at a trickle pace down the overflow spout.


The rubber stopper that is inside the back of the tank is allowing water to get by do to:
(1.) Be wore out- must be replaced with a new one.
(2.) The chain that is connected to the flush handle needs to be adjusted. However, if it has not been messed with recently, then it will be the (1.)

G-max flushing system is not filling to proper level


Is it not refilling the tank or the bowl? I've got a toto also that is not fully refilling the bowl after each flush. No leaks or other problems. Tank refills fine. Seems that the flapper doesn't float long enough to allow a sufficient amount of water to drain into the bowl before closing. Any ideas?
