If you have the old style(a ball at end of rod) try to ben brass rod down. like put an arch in rod. use two hands and not to far it could snap. if it is a fluidmaster. there is a shinny metal rod with a clip. pinch clip together and slide rod up. this will make it shut off sooner. hope this helps. duane.

Flow of water into american standard toilet tank is very slow and does not fill up to water mark


Adjust the level of the float, water level should be about 1/2" below top of overflow pipe. Slow filling can be due to a build up of calcium in fill vale, a partially blocked water valve, the washer many times gets deteriorated by the chlorine in the water, breaks up and clogs the fill line. Also many manufacturers (fluid-master in particular) place water restrictors inside the bottom of the fill tubes, which cause the water to fill much slower.

Toilet driping sound at bottom after flushing


Either the flapper is not closing completely or the water level is too high so water runs out the overflow pipe. Level should be set at 1/2" below top of pipe.

American standard caded 3 leaking water from tank into toilet and occasionally running every 5 minutes. is this a flapper problem (it seems well seated) or could it be leaking elswhere?


It could be a bad seat around the flapper or the flapper itself. Replace flapper with one designed for the Cadet. Check water level and see it doesn't flow above the overflow tube. if it is above the tube lower the float ball by turning the screw at top of ball.

I have a american standard toilet mode 4112 that keeps running.....any suggestions on how to fix it?


The flapper ball may be contaminated and not sealing or the float level has changed and needs adjustment. You should be able to see if the overflow has water flowing into it continuously.

Bought a aqua option toilet dual flush from American Standard the tube that usually goes into the overflow tube now rides on a float which rises with the level of water as it gets closer to the overflow...


i have the same issue with my aqua option toilet. if you have a water shut off installed on the supply line to the toilet, just close it enough to reduce the supply pressure. no more splashing.

Toilet bowl doesn't hold water but tank is full


The bowl is filled up with the little hose inside the tank, it locks inside of the overflow drain. And runs water in there as it flushes to swirl the water and fill the bowl. Water seeks it's own level, and the level in the bowl is at the top of the trap. It has to hold water, unless it isn't filling or it is leaking. Check out the filler and hope the bowl doesn't have a crack in it. Hope this helps.

My American Standard toilet flushes okay but when it is filling up the water will not stop running unless I lift the top and depress the lever.


Replace the fill valve. You can pick one up[ at Home dep or Lowes for about 20 buks. Close your angle stop at wall behind toilet. Drain all water from tank then remove supply loine from under tank. Then unscrew fill valve and remove gasket and all. Remember to put gasket in new one. :)
