These models need to have a flush valve flapper that has a styrofoam float on the lift chaninof the flapper. Go to hardware store or home improvement store and get a 'Korky brand toilet tank flapper with float 'ball". Cut the rubber ring piece away from the flapper and you don't need it (see cut here marks on flapper). Install flapper and adjust the float fairly close to the flapper.
When the water level drops in the tank and reaches the level of the float on the opne flapper, the flapper quickly closes causing the toilet to have a "surge" of siphon action which forces the water in the bowl to be drawn out.

We have a san raphael one piece toilet, and it sounds like the water is running at intervals. Sounds like there is problem with water level. What can I do to correct this problem? John


Sounds like the flapper is leaking water out of the tank. The flapper is the rubber valve that comes up and down every time you pull the flush lever. It is located in the tank at the bottom in the center. Very cheap part to replace.. Just turn the water off to the stool, take the top of the tank off, hold the flush lever down until all the water is out of the tank, reach in to the tank, disconnect the flush chain from the flapper, and disconnect the flapper arms holding to the stem. You can buy a flapper at any hardware store even at wal mart. Hope this helps.

Float does not trigger valve to stop water - continues to run even though tank is full


What kind of flush valve is it? kohler.com shows a couple of different towers with their ingenium toilets. Is it a Kohler item or is it a Fluidmaster?
Usually you adjust water height by turning a threaded rod that runs up and down. See page 5 of this pdf

Toilet doesn't turn off after flush


The Kohler Cimarron is one of the most popular and reliable toilets out there. (My Favorite). However, depending on the hardness of the water and if you use cleaner tabs in the tank, these factors can lead to a malfunction.
The first thing you should do is hold the flapper (rubber seal inside the tank that releases the water down to the bowl) down with your hands for a few seconds after a flush and see if the toilet stops running. Sometimes the flapper doesn't seal properly therefore the fill valve keeps working non stop. Stopping the fill while holding the flapper down will confirm that your flapper needs to be changed.
If this doesn't work then try this....
The other common problem with a running toilet is with the fill valve itself. There is an attached float on the fill valve that goes up and down depending on the water level. Once the water level rises, it rises the float, and the float tells the fill valve to stop filling the tank. While the toilet is running (hissing), try raising the float all the way up with your hand and see if it stops. If it stops but not consistently with every attempt, then you will need to change the fill valve. I believe the Fluidmaster 400A is the replacement model.

I have the Kohler model 703 one piece toilet. It runs once about every ten minutes. It sounds just like a flush but nothing happens in the bowl. Any ideas?


Something is leaking. Your description sounds like tank water is slowly leaking and then the tank refills. You really need to use Kohler brand parts, as others pieces seem to not work well.

HOW DO I CHANGE FLUSH SEAL ON KOHLER ONE PEICE TOILET


The flush seal is the rubber gasket between the tank and the bowl. You do not have one. So I am guessing you mean the wax ring on the floor?? They usually only get replaced when the toilet is changed, unless you spring a leak. Or are you talking about the flapper inside the tank that holds the water till the flush lever is pulled? Get a new flapper, if it is just the flapper you need, otherwise you will have to buy the whole thing, all these parts are available at the hardware store. I think it is held on by a couple screws in there, might just be a press fit, we don't see too many one piece toilets. And the wax ring is about $2, but the toilet has to be unbolted from the floor and water disconnected, clean off the old wax, put on the new ring, smoosh it back down and bolt it back it up. Don't for get the water line. Check to make sure you have no leaks. Hope this helps.
