Readjust the float. the longer it is the more leverage the fill water will have on it. good luck. The fill valve does come apart and cleaned if there is debri in it. Turn the water off first:)

SOURCE: 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)

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 do I adjust FLOAT VALVE in a Kohler San Martine toilet tank ?


On the fill valve float there will be either a plastic screw or a metal bar with a metal slide clip on it. If its a screw, use a screwdriver to turn it cw or ccw to adjust water level. If its a clip, compress the clip between your thumb and forefinger and slide it up or down along the bar to set the float level. You need to test it after adjusting. Level should be 1/2" below top of overflow tube.

My toilet won't stop filling up so goes over the


Adjust or replace the float. Odds are its stuck. make sure it moves freely up and down. If you cant see the float "normally located on the left side of tank " adjust screw or nob at the top of tube on left. If you still have trouble, replace or adjust flapper valve [located at the inside bottom center of tank] Adjust with chain hanging from flush handle.

How do I adjust the pressure in a Kohler pressurized flush toilet


You cannot adjust the pressure on the toilet. But you can adjust the stop setting screw at the top of the float arm. If the water is coming in too fast you can adjust the valve where the toilet water line connects to the wall water supply. Closing the valve a little will slow down the flow of water and it will take a little longer to refill the toilet water tank.

Just need to know how to adjust the 'arm' of the ballcock to lower the water level in the tank. Do I use the screw at the base of the arm?


Hello...

To adjust the water level, you need to set the height at which the float shuts off the water valve. There are several types of floats. In older toilets, the float hangs at the end of an armature, along a metal or plastic rod. Where that arm connects to the water valve there is usually a screw. Adjusting that screw will change the level at which the water valve shuts off. If there is no screw or it is already at its maximum, you may be able to bend the metal arm, but you should remove it from the valve or risk damaging the fill valve.
In newer toilets the float is often a collar around the fill valve and rides up and down vertically. The float typically has a spring clip connecting it to a metal rod which connects to the valve shut off control. Squeeze the spring clip to slide the float up or down the metal rod.
Manufacturers have several variations on the fill valve mechanism, but they all include a method for adjusting the water level. Close inspection should make it clear how to adjust your particular fill valve.

I hope this helps!

My toilet makes a high pitched whine after being flushed. Pressing down on the top of the tank mechanism makes it go away but the next time it flushes the whine returns.


I would suspect that the flush valve has a blokage in it that is causing a harmonic distortion to be transmitted thru your cold water piping.. One way you may be able to help this is to slow fill rate down on your flush valve. If your fush valve has a seperate float to shut off water supply to tank when it;s full there should be a adjustement screw onside of valve where float rod goes in. Adjust screw down to raise float and thus slow fill rate of tank, this should help with the noise. Ifyour toilet does not have adjustable float see if you have a valve on incoming water supply. If you do you can try slow down flow thru supply valve and see if that helps, Thanks

Toilet flushes fine but when the tank has filled it seems like the float ball keeps bobbing up and down letting more water or air into the tank. it will do this 5/6 times then quits. its almost like it is...


The ball float follows the tank water level, and repeated cycles of the float dropping and opening the fill valve would likely reflect a leak in the flush valve. You could try adjusting the float arm downward so that it will respond to a lower water level. Try turning off the supply valve, flushing it and listen for water leaking past the flush valve after it closes. If it does, replace the flapper or adjust the chain.

Kohler k-3574 float valve problem ,it dosn't shot off runs slowly all the time


There is two possible solution to this problem. Adjusting the float valve by turning the adjustment screw clockwise. If by adjusting the valve still does not shut the water of it is time to replace valve and according to your product make and model the Float Valve part number is 1083167 replaced by GP1083167. I hope this information helps. I also included a link to a website with the part so you could see the part and compare (this is only to view I don't promote any particular web site) you can probably find the part at local hardware store, plumbing shop, DIY store. Please rate info provided, Good Luck and have a great day.

How do I adjust tank fill valve to increase water level in toilet?


There are many different fill valves out there so it would be a little hard to tell you how to adjust your particular one without knowing the brand and type of the fill valve.
So I will give you a generic adjustment.
Look for someway/something to adjust your float in the toilet tank.
There should be a screw, moveable metal, something that will adjust your float.
Once you locate the adjustment, you can then adjust your water level in the toilet tank.
Adjust the water level in the toilet tank to be about a 1/4-1/2 inch before it flows out of the overflow tube when the water shuts off.
Good Luck, I hope this helped.
Please rate me, Thanks

My toilet handel is broke.how ican install


Remove the water cover lid then remove the chain connector at the handle looks like a diaper pin then unscrew the nut holding the handle in place and feed the handle assembly threw the nut and buy new handle assembly and replace. IF it's just the chain is broke replace the chain they are sold separately at any hardware store. IF it's the valve you can replace it as well by shutting off the toilet water valve, next disconnect the hose and go buy a float assembly that is similar. Adjust the new float assembly to be the same length as the old one then install gasket on the float and put in the hole for the float, install second gasket on the float on the outside and then install the nut and install the hose. Before you tighten the nut on the float make sure the float valve lines up with the handle and the float then tighten down hook up new chain and tighten the water hose, tighten the nut on the float and open the water valve. Watch the water level fill up if it looks like it's going to run over you will have to adjust the float so that it does not run into the throat of the toilet.
