SOURCE: American Standard Elongated toilet bowl water level slowly drops

The tank holding the proper amount of water is a good sign. The inside of the stool is like the GOOSE NECK under you sink. It always holds water. This may sound like a bit of a hassle to do but if all 3 toilets are identical, here is what you can try if you are a bit handy. Go to the hardware store and purchase 4 toilet wax rings with a plastic flange and a few sets of toilet floor flange bolts(they are cheap and you can always return if not used, as It is better to have xtra parts on hand). Turn off the water supply to the "Mystery Toilet". Leave the tank and everything connected to the stool. Flush the toilet and remove all excess water from the tank and bowl. This can be done with a shop vac, sponge or towel. Disconnect the water supply to the tank. Remove the bolts holding the stool to the floor and carefully remove toilet. Scrap off all the old wax from the floor flange and bottom of stool. Now go and repeat this proceedure to one of the toilets that is working properly. In other words Switch the "Mystery Toilet" with a "Working Toilet" and see how they react. If the working toilet does it in the same bathroom and the "Mystery Toilet" does not do it in the other bathroom then you probably have a VENTING PROBLEM. If the "Mysery Toilet" Does it in the other bathroom then you most likely have a Defective Toilet. This Job is best done by 2 people, as it can sometimes be challenging to center the new wax ring on the toilet flange. Reconnect to the floor and reconnect water supply to the tanks. DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN BOLTS to the floor flange as you may crack the toilet. All drain lines must be vented properly for water to flow. If you are curious check out drain venting on the internet. Also, sometimes a vent can become obstructed with debris, ice, bird nest, etc.. I would 1st check the vent on the roof visually and then have someone flush and listen. If you believe the vent is clear....Then do the toilet switch and go from there.....Hope this helps and Happy Holidays....Joe

SOURCE: toilet tank not filling up with enough water

By "tank ball" do you mean the fill valve that is connected to the water supply line or the flapper ball connected to the toilet handle?

SOURCE: raising water level in the toilet bowl.

The water level in the bowl is limited by the height of the internal trap down stream from the bowl. There is no adjustment possible. If the problem is odors, you can either flush more often, turn on the exhaust fan, or buy a different brand or model of toilet.

SOURCE: how do I adjust tank fill valve to increase water

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

Adjust the water level in the bowl of a duravit toilet


You can't. Water level is set by the design of the trap built into the ceramic base. Can only adjust height of water in the tank.

My kohler toilet does not have a ball Just a chain form the handle to the flap with a sponge type ball in the middle of the chain.How do I adjust it so I get more water flow when I flush


Adjust the water level in the tank. If the ballcock is float is horiz. adjust the screw on top (counter-clock wise to raise water level in tank) if the ballcock is vertical, adjust the water level by sliding the clip on the side.

How do you adjust the clip so the water level increases?


You don't adjust the clip as it attaches to the pipe to automatic turn off the water at the right level, but your water may be set at to high a level that it overflows into the bowl. When that happens you can do 2 things to correct it: 1 at the wall where the cold water comes out to the toilet you can adjust it to slow the supply of water to a little less. 2. You can adjust the screw inside tank to tighten (turning screw one way) to adjust water level to shut off quicker or adjust tank screw the other way to fell take water up higher. Flush the toilet and observe the power of the flush. Allow the tank to fill until the water shuts off. Repeat the procedure to adjust the float and water level, if desired.

Water level is set too high and runs over the overflow. how can i adjust the water level in the tank?


Inside the tank, on a lever arm there should be a cylindrical float that rises and lowers with the water level. Attached to the float is a float rod with a clip that can slide up and down the rod. You can adjust the water level by sliding the clip down to reduce the amount of water entering the tank. As the water fills the tank, the float rises, pushing up the float rod, which in turn pushes up the level that controls the valve allowing water to enter the toilet.

I have a Kohler elongated toilet and tank. The toilet does not fill up all the way. What should I do.


Hi chanryan...
You need to adjust your float level in the tank.
Look on the arm of the float ball and there should be a screw that you can adjust the level of the tank water.
Turn the screw to raise the level of the water in the tank, to just about a 1/2 inch of the overflow pipe
If it will not adjust then you will have to replace the float valve (ballcock...is what it is called)
