Water level adjustment

I have a Toto Ultramax MS8531135 toilet, can't seem to get the water level as high as it was when first purchased. Have replaced the fill level valves, but does not put enough water in the bowl to clean properly. Have adjusted the water level to its highest level, still not filling bowl like it used to. Any ideas ?

SOURCE: not enough water in the bowl

The fill valve probably has a float that surrounds the pole that extends from the bottom of the tank. The float usually has a metal rod that comes down with a clip to adjust the float. Move that clip up so that the float sits higher-this should add more water to the tank.

You need to replace the flapper and you will need to purchase one specifically for the Kohler toilet. I have the same toilet and tried using a generic flapper and from experiance, it didn't work until I bought the correct one and I'm a plumber! Have a great night.

SOURCE: Replaced toilet fill valve - now bowl water level a bit lower

put some water in with a bucket. poor some in slowly until you get it where you think it should have been. If it levels back out at the lower level. Then there is nothing wrong. Maybe the leaking water was keeping the bowl water line high than it should have been.

SOURCE: Toilet Bowl Water Level Slowly Drops

Check the fill tube in your toilet one easy way to see if it's leaking is get food coloring and pour in your tank to color the water this makes it easier to see and squeeze the tube in the tank when it's full if you see the colored water running down the middle of it you have a winner! if not you can look around for it sometimes the plastic under the flapper gets cracked too

SOURCE: Toto fill valve continual problem, new toilet

There are cheep fill valves and ther better built fill valves, so make sure you buy aa quality fill valve. Also buy a pressuer gauge at ahard ware store and check water pressure level at a faucet outlet. Screw gauge onto water fauct leave a little room for air to escape when water is drippng out tighten the hose bib on the gage turn on the faucet and read the pressure. If it's more than 50 PSI you need to lower the water pressuer. I need to know if your on a, on site underground well,or are on city water to tell you what you need to do to to fix this problem. If there is one. thanks for using Fix-ya if you want more info post here.

I have a toto toilet , model MS604114CEFG , bought 2 years ago . Last night , when I flushed it , the water level in the toilet bowl did not come down . It stay high in the bowl . In the tank reservoi


If the toilet is the only fixture in the bathroom group that is having an issue, then there is a partial blockage in Strap of toilet or in drain pipe close to toilet. If other fixtures are showing sluggish drainage, then the main drainage line is clogged. If all is fine with tub lav shower etc., pull toilet from floor and carefully turn upside down, and look to see if anything is visable. if so remove it and reinstall with new seal(wax ring). Also, look into pipe and see if any water is standing in it. If water is standing in pipe, the drain line is clogged and must be rodded(snaked) out to cure problem

An installation guide for your toilet can be found here:

http://admin.totousa.com/Product%20Downloads/0GU013Z,%20ONE%20PIECE%20TOILETS,%20V.08.pdf

See the top of page 5 for guidance on setting the water level. Make sure you are turning the screw the correct direction (clock-wise) to reduce the fill level.

Is the refill tube properly connected? Should be connected to fill valve nipple and the other end clipped to direct flow to the inside of the overflow pipe.

Is water flow only through the overflow tube or is there leakage from the flush valve? Being only 3-months old you should not be having problems due to breakdown of rubber seals; however, check to make sure the toilet flapper is properly sealing against the flush valve.

If none of this helps with your problem you made need to replace the fill valve. On page 10 of your guide is a parts list; you can identify your part numbers and shop on-line for an idea of replacement costs:
