Check the flapper in the bottom of the tank to see that it is sealing good. Sometimes they need replaced.

Water ridge toilet manual


Thus if the tank is continuing to drain down through the bowl into the sewer line, the rubber flapper is not seating properly with the flush. These become worn and torn and are easily replaced. Or, even with a new one installed, sometimes they are not adjusted properly to create the appropriate balance between play and pull. Play being the upward connection to the flush handle and pull being the downward draw with the gravity flow of the water. Too much play it won't actually flush or lift properly. Too much pull it does not seat tightly or won't lift up long enough to allow enough water to flow through to flush the toilet...as engineered by the geniuses who designed the toilet. A simple adjustment of the chain links attaching the flapper to the flush handle and perhaps a side to side turn of the cuff so the flapper is aligned to seat properly as it drops should be sufficient. And test, test, test, test, and test again until you're absolutely sure you've got it adjusted correctly. One or two flushes is not sufficient!

After flush the system must close the hole which lets water into the toilet. If it does not close after flush, it is continuously letting the water thru. Check if it closes after flush and allows tank to fill.

After flushing, the toilet keeps running. However, if I turn off the water supply, and then turn back on, the toilet stops running until the next time it is flushed. Toilet makes a


It could be the type of flap you are using. I would suggest you try a different shaped flapper (a cone would work best) and if that doesn't do it, put a new kit into the unit, because it could be that the float system is sticking causing it to continue running.

Toilet runs slightly, can minimally depress the handle to release a bit of water, and it will stop. How to fix?


Toilet runs continuously or doesn't flush adequately

Jiggling the handle might work for a while, but if your toilet is always running or doesn't flush adequately, you need to perform these simple fixes that usually can tame a noisy, inefficient toilet.

Check the Chain

The chain attached to the rubber flapper often becomes loose, causing incomplete flushing and/or continuous running. To fix it, remove links from the chain using needle-nosed pliers until it's tight.

Check Water Level

Improper water levels can also cause problems with your toilet. This can be fixed by adjusting the ball ****, which is located next to the overflow pipe, the open tube to the right of the handle. Adjust the ball **** so the water comes to ½ " below the overflow pipe.

Clean the Surface of the Flush Valve

A continuously running toilet can also be the result of a faulty flush valve. Because the valve is made of rubber, it can decompose or warp allowing water to escape from the tank into the bowl. Clean the sealing surface to see if this will improve the seal. If too decomposed or warped the valve may need to be replaced.

Replace the Flapper

Remove old flapper and replace with a suitable replacement. Attach the flapper to the overflow pipe inside the bowl. Then attach the lever chain from the flapper to the handle lever making sure the chain is taut.

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!
