SOURCE: Delay on tank fill after flush. Toto Drake bowl ada elongatred

I am not a plumber but stumbled across the solution on my own. While watching the float during the flush cycle, it was obvious that it was very slow in moving downward along with the water level in the tank. The problem was that the small opening in the float chamber was partially clogged. Using just my fingers, I reached under the float chamber and cleaned off any debris that was blocking the opening underneath the float chamber. Put the float back on, and instantly the problem was solved. The tank fill started immediately after I flushed.

I have the same problem and can not find a solution. The toilet flushes fine but then a delay in filling up the tank occurs. Is there a part I can replace? Does something need to be cleaned or cleared?

The small tube that comes from the Korky fill valve needs to go down the center of the tube in the tank. It should have come with a clip to clip it inside the fill tube. If the tube is running water into the tank it is just filling up the tank, not the bowl. The tank is filled with the Korky valve from the top of the tower, not the black hose. See the video below to see the black tube I'm referring to and where it should be attached.

Korky anti-siphon. Tank water slowly drops, accompanied by a hissing sound. Then, after dropping about 1/2 inch, it refills. Wha?


either the fill valve is running and water is draining into the bowl via the overflow tube in the tank or the flapper is bad (or foreign matter) and it is allowing water to escape into the bowl slowly...causing the fill valve to run every few minutes or so. hope this helps but if you need anything else just text me here:)

The top tank of my toliet wont stop filling. water is coming out of the flush lever??? I had to turn the water off to it


Your Fill Valve needs to be replaced. The life of the Fill Valve can be shortened by the hardness of water or by using tabs to keep the bowl clean. If it is a one piece toilet, use the Korky adjustable Fill Valve. If it's a two piece, use the Fluidmaster 400A. If you attempt this make sure you turn off the water supply valve and flush all the water out of the tank. When you go to tighten the plastic screw, be very gentle and don't overtighten because the tank WILL crack otherwise. Hope this helps!

Replace flapper valve in ultramax


Your Toto has the "G-Max" flush valve system. The Korky/Lavelle folks have a carded replacement flapper #2021BP for it. It is red in color and the only generic flapper that will work on your toilet. While it may look the same, do not confuse it with the blue flapper #2022BP. Known as the PowerMax flapper, the blue color is to distinguish between the two and the flappers are totally toilet specific. Let your fingers do the walking and locate a hardware store near you that carries the Korky/Lavelle brand or it can be ordered online from several places using the part number for your search word.
If the fill valve ever stops filling correctly, the Lavelle "Quiet Fill", #528BP, is what Toto uses in most of their toilets.

I flush the toilet, tank fills up and cuts off, but the water leaks out, then the tank cuts back on to fill up and this is a vicious cycle.


Go to the hardware store and get a new flush valve flap made by Korky and install it. Your flush valve flap has worn out and allowing water to leak through.

I have a Toto toilet with a G-max valve. It does


Your local home center should sell a "Korky Model No. R528" to fix the valve without removing it. It's the cap that contains the washer. Replacement is easy and takes just a few minutes. Once you have the cap off it's a good idea to flush the sediment from the valve body by holding a large cup upside down over the valve and turning the water on for a few seconds. The cup will keep the water in the tank.

Flush valve drops before bowl completes flush


is the flapper weighted? if it is it will cause it to shut prematurely. one thing you can do is increase the water in the tank. you might have to buy a pvc cuppler to put on the over flow to allow it to fill up more. korky makes a nice flapper thats not weighted
