Why does my toilet keep running?

I have already replaced the stopper at the bottom and 1/2 the time I flush, it will keep running water. Could it be the buoy type thing inside that is the problem?

Yes. Fluid master brand makes a great replacement unit that is reasonably
priced. It is available at the big box hardware stores.

How do you stop a power flush toilet from constantly running?


You'll have to see if the water is leaking past the flush stopper or into the overflow tube. The tube is the little pipe where water drains if the tank is filled too high. The flush stopper is a rubber flapper mounted on the bottom of the overflow tube. If water is running into the tube, then the flush valve may be stuck, so shake it up and down (gently) and hopefully it will be freed. If water is not running into the tube, then reach down and try to seat the flapper stopper to see if something was lodged there to keep it from seating all the way. Would be a simple fix either way.

MY TOILET FLUSH VALVE SEEMS TO BE CLOGED BUT I CLEANED IT IT WILL FLUSH BUT WONT FILL TANK YOU CAN HEAR WATER WANTING TO COME OUT PLEASE HELP


Hi Juan
Unfortunately we can't see what you can see. The problem must be right in front of you but you are missing it. Eg Parts / Seals in backwards.
If you can't figure it out and it's that urgent then call a plumber.
Good Luck

I have a 2yr old Kohler K4634 toilet. After flushing the water level drops about 1 inch in the bowl after the bowl filled. This causes a lower level in the bowl than is recommended. The main issue


check to see if waster continues to run into the bowl after the plunger has returned to stop water flowing. If it is a slow leak then replace the flush washer on the stopper plunger.

The lever (handle) to flush the toilet does not rise after it is pushed down, causing the toilet to run. One has to push the lever (handle)up after the down motion to make it function properly.


I had this issue as well with my toilet. My chain was unattached and had been sucked down the drain under the stopper valve preventing the toilet stopper valve from completely closing and causing the water to continually run. After re-attaching the chain I noticed when I flushed the toilet that the handle did not rise again until I manually pushed it up. After readjusting the chain to a tighter position where the chain was not floating at all but instead holding the stopper valve in place I again flushed to check the reaction. This fixed the issue of the water continually running and also the handle not resetting itself properly.

Here is the steps I took to resolve my issue:

Step 1: Remove the lid off of the tank.

Step 2: Check to see if the chain coming from the Toilet Handle to the Stopper Valve is loose, unattached, or broken.

Step 3: Flush the toilet and check to see if the problem has been fixed. If not readjust the chain to a different position and flush again.

Step 4: If all is resolved replace the tank lid.

Other possible things to check:
Check the Float Ball to see if it's Half-way or more submerged in the water. If it is it needs to be replaced.

I hope this helps!

TOTO DRAKE flushes then the tank fills, stops, then slowley leaks and the water just runs on and on at a trickle pace down the overflow spout.


The rubber stopper that is inside the back of the tank is allowing water to get by do to:
(1.) Be wore out- must be replaced with a new one.
(2.) The chain that is connected to the flush handle needs to be adjusted. However, if it has not been messed with recently, then it will be the (1.)

Internal leak


I am not familiar with this particular toilet, but most toilets that have a tank have this problem when the rubber flap stopper does not seal and allows water to trickle through.

this is the rubber stopper that lifts when you use the flush handle, the fix was to use the handle and allow all the water to flow out and use a soft rag and clean the area that the stopper seals to, and you will also want to clean the stopper of any gunk that may have accumulated on it.

Water level drops in bowl after it fills


Replace your stopper at the bottom of the tank. While you do hat you should also just go ahead and replace the float. 25 dollars for everything and 10 minute worth of your time
