If the water is reaching the tank overflow tube, the float valve is not stopping it fully. If the valve is new or not too old and you have instructions or know how to disassemble it, you can flush it to ensure there is no debris in the valve or on the seat. Although the manufacturers recommend this, I have never found anything on the seat.
If you can't do this, a new float valve assembly must be installed.

Tip

How to fix a refill valve


  • Brass-style toilet refill valves can often be repaired. To take a valve apart, remove the lever's screws. This allows you to lift out the float arm and valve plunger. Check the flat rubber washer on the end of the plunger. If it's worn, you can pull it out with pliers and either turn it around or replace it. This procedure usually corrects an overfilling problem. Next, reassemble the valve. If the tank continues to overfill, check to make sure the operating lever at the end of the float arm is functioning properly.

  • New refill valve. To replace the entire refill valve assembly, first turn off the water supply. The tank should then be flushed and sponged out, as detailed previously. Remove the inlet nut and riser tube from the bottom of the refill valve beneath the tank. Hold the refill valve inside the tank with a padded locking plier/wrench to keep it from turning, and remove the nut beneath the tank. With the nut off, the refill valve assembly can be lifted out and a new one inserted in its place. Follow the exact instructions included with the unit you purchase.

  • Finally, reconnect the riser tube and turn the water on. The tank should fill, allowing you to adjust the water level according to the instructions that were included with the valve.

  • Anti-siphon valves. The best refill valves offer anti-siphon protection. In fact, this may be a requirement. This protection prevents back siphonage of toilet tank water into your home's potable water supply system if a vacuum occurs in the toilet's water supply system. Whether or not this is a code requirement, the anti-siphon valve is a good idea to protect your family and public health.

Replace the anti-siphon valve

Anti-siphon valves prevent water from siphoning back into the water supply. Also known as vacuum breakers, anti-siphon valves are used on washing machines, faucets, toilets, sprinklers and other water sources. A leak on an anti-siphon valve can cause deterioration of the appliance's external components and damage the flooring material underneath the washing machine. Therefore, a leaking anti-siphon valve should be attended to as soon as possible.

Korky anti-siphon. Tank water slowly drops, accompanied by a hissing sound. Then, after dropping about 1/2 inch, it refills. Wha?


either the fill valve is running and water is draining into the bowl via the overflow tube in the tank or the flapper is bad (or foreign matter) and it is allowing water to escape into the bowl slowly...causing the fill valve to run every few minutes or so. hope this helps but if you need anything else just text me here:)

Since I replaced the insides of my toilet with the fluidmaster 400 anti siphon, the water seems to no refill the tank after I flush the toilet.


You are going to have to adjust the valve you just installed. Most can be adjusted by pulling a ring close to the bottom upward and pulling the neck of the valve up, in turn adjusting the water level in the tank. There should be instructions in the box on how to raise the water level.

The bowl on one of our Toto Drake toilets, after a flush is complete, has very very little water in it. I recently replaced the fill valve (used a Korky fill valve). Since then I have had this problem


The small tube that comes from the Korky fill valve needs to go down the center of the tube in the tank. It should have come with a clip to clip it inside the fill tube. If the tube is running water into the tank it is just filling up the tank, not the bowl. The tank is filled with the Korky valve from the top of the tower, not the black hose. See the video below to see the black tube I'm referring to and where it should be attached.

Does the 2004 cavalier have an anti-siphon valve between the filler tube and the gas tank?


not 100% on this but i believe all cars after like 97 have an anti-siphon screen that keeps the tube from entering the gas tank.
