The American Standard toilet in my apartment - Home

The American Standard toilet in my apartment recently started making a muzzled sound coming from the tank. Upon further inspection I found that the water was spraying from the top of the weight system and not entering the tube used to fill the tank properly. If I turn off the water supply then turn it back on it fills properly. I'm at a loss, any idea what could be happening?

When you turn on the supply the tank fills ok. I don't know the mechanism in your tank but fixed a similar problem. Check the flap that releases water to flush, if it CLOSES properly after flush otherwise it lets the water into the toilet continuously making the sound. IF closed properly, the tank fills.

SOURCE: toilet tank fill valve sprays water towards lid

Hi bpmorr1,

It may be that the fill tube has come disconnected . It runs from the top of the fill valve to the overflow. The overflow is the tube that runs up the middle of the tank. The fill tube runs from the top of the fill valve to the top of the overflow tube. Kohler has a little clip that can sometimes come undone and cause spraying.


If that doesn't do it, turn the water off to the toilet and take off the tank lid. Partially open valve ( Slowly). Locate where spray is coming from. If it is in the area on top of the fill valve then yes, buy anew one. ( Fluidmaster )

Please rate this response and good luck, Phil

Okay Howard. It seems that the fill or float valve inside the toilet tank needs to be replaced. If you have a pair of channel locks / large pliers and some patience, you can do this yourself and save $ on a service call. This Solution is providing that you have good water pressure everywhere else in the house. First turn off the water on the supply line going to the tank. Flush the toilet (with the water off) to empty the tank. Take a towel / sponge / or wet vac to remove any remaining water. Remove the nut on the underside of the tank that holds the float / water supply to the tank. Now that you have the water float removed you can go to your local hardware store / Home Depot / or Plumbing Supplies Store and get a new fill valve. There are different kinds but they all do the same thing, fill your tank. I use a Fluid Master, But you may have to use one like you have. The Store will assist you. They are only about $10 - $15 Bucks or so.......Install the new float according to directions.....It is pretty simple. Insert your new float stem into the hole with the proper rubber washers and tighten carefully for a good seal. Insert the new black hose into the overflow tube and you are in business. You will have to adjust the water level to about a 1/4 Inch below the overflow tube for a good flush!!! I hope this helps you with the slow tank fill.............Joe

shut the water off to the toilet .Remove the toilet supply from the tank end.slowly turn the valve on to see if their is any water coming thru the supply.If water is coming thru the supply than you know you need to change the ballcock.This is the part in the tank where the water comes out of.

SOURCE: Water continues to drip from fill tube after the fill.

I had same issue but with different solution... I noticed that the rubber fill tube was rubbing against the inside of the flapper assembly just enough to prevent flapper from fully sealing after flushing. I routed the rubber fill tube so that it doesn't touch or impede the flapper valve.

American Standard Carlyle Series toilet is refilling about 10 percent of the water in the tank every 20 minutes. Do I need to replace the flapper or the entire flush valve?


Start with the flapper. They tend to dry up especially with water that contains chlorine. Purchase the American Standard flapper if available for that toilet. Works better than generics.

My brand new toilet american standard round front model cadet 3 tank not fill water


If you verify that the water supply to the toilet is turned on, push down the float on the flush valve. Water should start flowing. If it doesn't, something (such as debris) may be blocking the valve and preventing filling. The new valve could be defective - permanently closed.

Did you try calling or emailing the parts dept. at american standard? I am not sure if they just sell the gasket. American standard parts are certainly different from most toilets.

Is is possible to make a full flush toilet from an American Standard Cadet 3. The toilet is on a septic system and does not have the power to move waste all the way to the septic tank.


If your toilet is not moving waste all the way to the septic, then there may be a blockage in the waste line or it may not be plumbed correctly. There is no reason why you should not be able to make a full flush on septic. I have live on septic for many years and it should flush as well as living in the city. Is your water supply nice and strong? This sound like a gravity issue with the waste line or a blockage, If you can get under your house and see how the waste line is run, that would be helpful, it should be aimed straight down underneath your toilet and never running uphill at any point on the way to the septic tank. Also is there a vent in the waste line at the proper distance. If not, that could also be the issue. Good luck. P.s. does your septic tank need pumped out?

Flush valve drops before bowl completes flush


is the flapper weighted? if it is it will cause it to shut prematurely. one thing you can do is increase the water in the tank. you might have to buy a pvc cuppler to put on the over flow to allow it to fill up more. korky makes a nice flapper thats not weighted

Water comes from bottom of tank when commode is flushed. I have a two piece toilet, upon flushing it water pours from in between the two joined parts-tank and commode.


You need a new tank gasket. It is a rubber piece that seals between the tank and the bowl. They are fairly inexpensive and if you have patience and a little plumbing know-how; they can be changed at home. Here is a good on-line set of instructions:

Have to flush 2 or 3 times to empty toilet bowl


hello, this is a standard toilet you will need to inspect the flapper that is the rubber flap that holds the water up in the tank it works when you pull the lever it pulls the chain upward and lets the water flow if this flapper is old it may not stay up long enough for the water to flow. open the tank top and flush the toilet see if this flapper is staying up long enough and giving the tank enough time to empty if not change this rubber flapper its inexpensive part.
if this is not the reason then you need to adjust your water filler valve there should be a small screw on top of the pivoting float arm
if you have to adjust it for the water limit line inside the tank this will be the proper amount of water needed to flush once completely

also check that the chain lenth on the pull lever is not pulling the flapper down quicker than its supposed to,

try this let me know your results
hope it helps
