    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.

How can I adjust the waterflow to a lower setting to make it 1.2 gallon flush from a 1989 3.5 gallon flush??


Keep in mind that if you limit the amount of water too much, the 3.5 gallon toilet will not flush properly.

This looks like an old Kohler Rialto toilet. The proper way to adjust the water level is to tighten down on the adjustment screw located on the very top of the fill valve. The fill valve is the the piece that the float ball screws into on the left side of the tank.
Tighten the screw down and flush the toilet. Wait for it to refill, and check the level. If you need less water, tighten again, let fill and check level.
There are also two old school methods to save water in your toilet. One is to put one or two bricks into your toilet tank. This reduces the amount of water that fills the tank. The second method is if the fill valve has a float ball on a metal rod, you can bend this rod down into the water. This makes the fill valve shut sooner. Don't bend too far or too fast because the chlorine in the water weakens the brass rod that the float ball attaches to.

Sounds like the water tank keeps filling


2 possibilities.1. The water level is set higher the the overflow tube. This will cause the water to run into the overflow continuously. You should be able to see this. 2. The large seal - bottom center of the tank - is leaking. This will cause the water level to slowly drop after a fill. The water tank will start to run again after flushing - BUT NOT CONTINUOUSLY. You should see if there is a small amount of water flowing from the rim to the bowl 15 seconds after the water has stopped running after a flush.

My jacuzzi toilet doesnt fill with enought water in the bowl to remove waste from porcilin when flushing


Hi, W/D here.
Check the water level in the tank. The force to flush waste comes from there. Normally the fill line is cast into the back of the tank, but sometimes it is on the overflow tube. Raise the level if it is low.
Also, make sure that the tubing from the fill valve is connected to the over flow tube (the tall tube).
Best regards, --W/D--

The toilet isnt flushing and water is not filling into the cistern? (at the top) how do i fix this problem??


If I understand correctly, the tank that holds water is not filling up with water.

1) If this is the problem, then you need new toilet fill valve.
Or clean sediment out of existing fill valve by removing and soaking in CLR calcium rust lime.

To replace fill valve:
Look at water supply line coming into tank.
Supply line connects to fill valve.

Buy new fill valve at home center, hardware store, or walmart, or online.
There are two nuts connected to valve. Each nut has companion rubber washer

One nut & washer seal water supply line to tank.
Second nut & washer seal valve to tank.

2) If water tank is full of water, but water does not flow rapidly into bowl when you push flush lever, then your toilet is clogged with sediment.

To solve sediment problem when flush water will not flow rapidly into tank, then buy CLR calcium lime rust.
Pour CLR down into overflow tube located inside water tank.
Make a funnel by cutting off bottom of water bottle, or cut paper cup into a funnel.
Pour cup-full after cup-full of CLR into overflow tube until sediment and CLR are coming out all flush holes located under-rim on bowl.

3) Add a comment for more free help.
Also take advantage of fixya phone service.
For a price, expert speaks with you over phone while you work on timer or any do-it-yourself project.
Fixya is always less expensive than a service call.

How to fix fill water shooting up and over when flushing?


I don't exactly know what you mean so i will cover all the basics. The fill valve sends fills water in 2 locations. 1) the fill valve fills at the low end (from the bottom to the top) of the tank. This is the flush water level. It needs to be stopped by a float switch before the water overflows into the over flow tube.
2) the fill valve fills water via a small tube at the top of it which this tube NEEDS to be pointed into the overflow tube with a high arch. THIS water is filling your toilet bowl section to proper flushing height. If your water in your bowl does not reach proper height and someone removes this tube to aim it into the tank where the other water is stored, THEN you may have the problems you described and you will need to do several flushes to remove waste.
SO to reiterate 1) make sure your float cuts off and stops the filling cycle before the water flows into the over flow tube. This is done from 1 or 2 adjustment screws. and 2) make sure the small black tube is aimed down into the over flow tube with a good arch. The arch prevents back siphon.
