Not enough water in the bowl


Take cover off tank and check to see if the small tube that squirts water into the overflow tube is actually discharging into the overflow.

If this is unclear flush toilet with tank lid off and observe operation.

Generally there is a small metal clip that holds the small tube to squirt into the overflow.

The water in the tank continues to leak out and the tank has to continue to refill. I have replaced the flapper, I have taken the tank off the toilet and check gasket alignment. The tank does not leak...


There are only a coulple of places that the toilet could leak or, overflow and give you this problem. When you replaced the flapper valve, did it have an extra piece of rugger on it? Universal flappers have a round piece on them that are designed to fit over the overflow tube. If you flapper had this piece and you don't have need for it, you need to cut that out, if the flapper "hooks" to the overflow assembly. Leaving that piec on can contort the shape of the flapper and make it so it won't seal. If you are noticing constant movement(slight swirl) in the bowl, make sure the back tank is not constantly overflowing into overflow tube. If this is the case, your water level is too high. You will either need to adjust the water level and/or replace the fill valve. If you can hear the toilet running or leaking, push down on the flapper, if it stops, you have a problem with the flapper and/or the chain adjustment. When you install the flapper, you have ton make sure the chain is long enough to let the flapper fall and seal but, not so long that it can tangle or get between the the flapper and it's seal below it.

The toilet keeps running constantly - the tube in the tank is overflowing and i can not get the dripping sound to stop. Anything i can do?


The noise is because your float in the toilet is set at too high of a level and it is overflowing and making noise.
Reset your float, to adjust the water level just below the overflow pipe...this should stop your noise.
If it does not correct the problem then you will have to replace the water control unit inside of the toilet tank.

I installed a new complete Fluidmaster and filled it up with water but when flushing water comes out under the tank not under the toilet though.


probably needs a "doughnut" tank washer under tank..or try tightening the tank bolt..fluid master comes with a little rubber hose that goes to overflow tube

Leaking and refilling


The flapper (the rubber cone shaped piece at the bottom of the overflow tube is not sealing completely. You can purchaser a new one at most hardware stores and replace it yourself. It's an easy DIY fix.

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.

Kohler Highline Class V tech toilet. Bowl does not fill. Why? What can I do to fix it?


Check tank for fill line running from fill valve to overflow tube. It will be a 1/4 " line that allows the tank and bowl to fill. It should be connected from fill valve and connected at the top of overflow by a clip or hanger.

Check out the water level in tank to make sure it is filling to line on overflow or within 5/8" to top of overflow pipe.

Toilet tank fill valve sprays water towards lid


Hi bpmorr1,

It may be that the fill tube has come disconnected . It runs from the top of the fill valve to the overflow. The overflow is the tube that runs up the middle of the tank. The fill tube runs from the top of the fill valve to the top of the overflow tube. Kohler has a little clip that can sometimes come undone and cause spraying.


If that doesn't do it, turn the water off to the toilet and take off the tank lid. Partially open valve ( Slowly). Locate where spray is coming from. If it is in the area on top of the fill valve then yes, buy anew one. ( Fluidmaster )

Please rate this response and good luck, Phil
