It is probably the fluidmaster valve that needs to be replaced. Its about $10 at the Lowes.

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.

SOURCE: toilet fills up after flushing but water seeps out

I would change fill valve. You can use a simple valve such as a Fluidmaster 400A and change it youself if you feel comfortable doing it yourself,just follow insruction on box. Thanks

Depending on many factors such as hard water and age of the internal workings, you float is bad. Probably some corrosion or calcium buildup making it stick. Cheap fix at your local hardware store. Go there and tell them what it is doing and they will sell you a kit to solve your problem.Hardware in you tank is very easy to replace.

My Simpson ezi sett 7.5 always fills to full even when set to low. i have replaced the pressure switch and still fills to full.


Check the rubber hose from the pressure switch down to the bowl for any holes or splits allowing the air pressure to escape. Also check that water valve is stopping the flow. Start to fill then press pause. Water flow should stop immediately. If it keeps flowing or is slow to stop then replace the inlet valve. Try it several times to be sure.

Roca dual push button Toilet will only flush when holding the push button continuously down until the cistern is empty. It won't completely flush like it should when pressing the button once.


allow tank to fill a little more by adjusting fill valve. When there's not enough water flowing from tank the stopper can over-power the water flow and cause the flush to stop by re-sealing.

Yes it is normal just no hot air


1. When setting the temperature to MAX, blower level to FULL and outside air Vent CLOSED, no hot air comes out after 2-5 minutes?
If YES, when did you last flushed your radiator and is it full?
2. if more than 5 years ago, flush radiator system, instructions are usually in Owners manual. Use a bottle of Radiator cleaner, run egine hot for about 10-15 minutes, carefully open petcock in bottom of radiator to flush out radiator, WARNING, careful as flushed coolant would be boiling hot. As sson petcock is open and water start to flow out, carefully open radiator cap to enhance flushing flow. Use garden hose to fill radiator while flushing until water coming out from petcock is cold and clear.
Once clear, start engine, turn heter full and blower full blast and keep hose in radiator flowing full, leave petcock open until clear water flows out again. Once clear waters comes out, turn off engine,turn off garden hose and let water drain empty radiator. Once it stops flowing out, close petcock snug and put radiator cap on, pull off radiator coolant catch bottle, clean bottle for any debris and dirt. Drain any water, leave bottle empty and put it back onto its place.
3. Fill radiator with 1 gallon (4L) of concentrated coolant, top up radiator until full, fill catch bottle with concentrated coolant, start engine and keep it overflowing until no bubbles comes out and the radiator is fully hot. Once it is flowing good, close and connect everything. Drive with it and keep catch bottle filled as necessarry.
Good luck. Give as vote and good comment if this advise solve youor problem. Thank you.

How to fix fill water shooting up and over when flushing?


I don't exactly know what you mean so i will cover all the basics. The fill valve sends fills water in 2 locations. 1) the fill valve fills at the low end (from the bottom to the top) of the tank. This is the flush water level. It needs to be stopped by a float switch before the water overflows into the over flow tube.
2) the fill valve fills water via a small tube at the top of it which this tube NEEDS to be pointed into the overflow tube with a high arch. THIS water is filling your toilet bowl section to proper flushing height. If your water in your bowl does not reach proper height and someone removes this tube to aim it into the tank where the other water is stored, THEN you may have the problems you described and you will need to do several flushes to remove waste.
SO to reiterate 1) make sure your float cuts off and stops the filling cycle before the water flows into the over flow tube. This is done from 1 or 2 adjustment screws. and 2) make sure the small black tube is aimed down into the over flow tube with a good arch. The arch prevents back siphon.

1994 Honda Civic LX\overheating within 2 mile drive


Remove and raise upper hose at thermostat end and remove lower rad hose.
Fill rad with a hose and watch for flow from bottom rad hose and/ or bottom rad hose connecton.......water should fall though rad easily.
Honda rads are cheap.....any restriction....replace rad.

Remove thermostat....fill thermostat housing with hose and watch for water flow at bottom rad hose.
Flush good.

Remove heater hoses.......flush back and forth until a good flow is present "With heater control set to hot" if no or poor flow....replace heater core.

Stop leak can plug everything.

Also.......not likely causing over heating....but ....at your mileage,if you do not know if the timing belt has been changed.....CHANGE IT NOW!
Water pump is optional at this mileage.

Downstairs toilet won't stop filling, upstairs toilet won't fill


for the upstairs if the valve is fully on there is not much you can do other than replace water service to the house or heaven forbid repipe.Valves usually don't restrict fill volume.But you can take the supply loose from the tank and stick it in a bucket turn the valve on and check the flow.this should narrow it down.Down stairs repair or replace flush valve

Kelinator ESC wahing machine spinning ok but filling too slowly. Not doing wash cycle


If your washing machine is filling too slowly, then you probably have a clogged screen on the back of your washer. To check this: Turn off the water supplies(both hot and cold). Remove the hoses at the back of the washer. Check the screens for debris(i.e. rust, dirt, scale, etc.) The screens will be pushed into the back of the washer where the water enters the washer. Debris can come from a variety of places: #1 Deposits coming off the sides of your pipes.(Older homes) #2 Repairs done to your plumbing lines, or the cities lines.

If these screens are clear of debris, I would then check the water flow out of the hoses. Take each hose with the end pointing into a bucket, and turn on the water to allow a full flow. This will also flush each line of debris. There could also be a number of reasons that there would not be full flow out of the supply lines: #1 Debris stopping up the line at the shut-off is one of the main causes.

If you have debris stopping up your screens and shut-offs, it will most likely stop up your aerators on your faucets, and your shower heads too. It is also suggested that you check these.

If you are getting debris in all these items, I would recommend that your lines get flushed. You can do this, but many times it is easier to have a plumber do this. If you do not know what you are doing, it can get very wet, and time consuming.

Good Luck
