SOURCE: I have a Jacuzzi Perfecta toilet (bought Aug. 21,

Have you tried shutting water off and take top of valve appart and flush it out. It may have something in valve causing water to be restricted. It will have an arrow on it to direction to get it to come off.

Take appart and clean rubber disc and you can put something over top of valve , a small cup or something to enable you to flush the tank. Have someone help you and hold the cup above the valve so that when you turn water on for a few bursts to flush out the valve it goes into tank.

The actual stream that flows through valve is restricted down to almost 1/8 " opening so it wouldn't take mush to block the flow of water.

The disc you take out you can replace it, if it seems to be damaged and not working correctly. That will affect the flow also.

Testimonial: "I took the valve apart. It is working like it is supposed to. That sure is a tiny hole for the fill water to shoot through. that is why it is so slow. It still whistles when filling. Tnx Walter Neaves"

How to change water level ?


The level is determined by a floating device connected to the water valve. Some are on an angled arm and some move up and down.
Determine how your valve is shut off and either change the big round float or adjust the clips on the rising one.
Just keep the level below the overflow and the flush handle to avoid a running toilet or a leak.

Water keeps running after the water reaches the overflow tube


There is an adjustment screw on top to adjust the float shutoff level. Models vary, but should be easy to find. It is usually where the float attaches to the valve body. Give it a turn, you want the float to go down. Flush and recheck water level and readjust if necessary.

I have a kohler model 703 # sb78drn, the toilet keeps running. i changed the flapper and now the toilet doesn't stop running. please help?


Try adjusting the float level. The float is what tells the toilet to stop filling. If the float is set too high, then water will just go down the overflow tube and never be able to get to the level it needs to turn off.

The toto toilet keeps running over the overflow tube in the tank. I cleaned the valve which worked for a while but now is back to running. Should I replace the gravity valve?


If you can lift the float arm and it stops the water flow into the tank then the float arm needs to be adjusted. The proper adjustment will stop the water flow when the level is between 3/4" and 1" from the top of the overflow tube. The newer style valves have an adjustment screw that is easily located and can be adjusted without any dis-assembly.

I just installed a Kholer Rialto toilet and the water doesn't shut off, it keeps running even though the tank fills with water.


My toilet is running, how do I fix it? To solve this problem, you'll want to ask the following questions:
  1. Is water running into the overflow tube? If so, lower/adjust the float valve. By doing this it will float higher closing the inlet valve.
  2. Is the chain too slack or too tight? Make sure the chain has only 1-2 beads of slack.
  3. Has the water in the home or surrounding area been recently shut off for some reason? This could cause debris to come up through the water pipes and settle into the diaphragm seal of the fill valve. Flush out the diaphragm seal.
This is not an unusal problem; here is a video that may provide more assistance:

The toilet keeps running constantly - the tube in the tank is overflowing and i can not get the dripping sound to stop. Anything i can do?


The noise is because your float in the toilet is set at too high of a level and it is overflowing and making noise.
Reset your float, to adjust the water level just below the overflow pipe...this should stop your noise.
If it does not correct the problem then you will have to replace the water control unit inside of the toilet tank.

WATER KEEPS RUNNING ON TOILET


The screw can be used but only for minor adjustments. The missing tube should be replaced. If this doesn't solve the problem purchase a repair kit. The repair kit comes with everything you need for about $20 and can be installed yourself (saving $$$ if you called a plumber)

Toilet keeps running. Replaced the flapper, improved the condition, but toilet keeps running slightly. Is there somewhere I can make an adjustment to the stack deal?


It's possible there's too much tension on the chain which won't allow the flapper to completely seal and let the tank fill. If this is not the case, the float may be stuck. If the float is sticking you're better off replacting it. If the tank is filling and water is overflowing into the tube, then it's the float.
