How do I adjust FLOAT VALVE in a Kohler San Martine toilet tank ?


On the fill valve float there will be either a plastic screw or a metal bar with a metal slide clip on it. If its a screw, use a screwdriver to turn it cw or ccw to adjust water level. If its a clip, compress the clip between your thumb and forefinger and slide it up or down along the bar to set the float level. You need to test it after adjusting. Level should be 1/2" below top of overflow tube.

Water level is set too high and runs over the overflow. how can i adjust the water level in the tank?


Inside the tank, on a lever arm there should be a cylindrical float that rises and lowers with the water level. Attached to the float is a float rod with a clip that can slide up and down the rod. You can adjust the water level by sliding the clip down to reduce the amount of water entering the tank. As the water fills the tank, the float rises, pushing up the float rod, which in turn pushes up the level that controls the valve allowing water to enter the toilet.

How do I adjust the pressure in a Kohler pressurized flush toilet


You cannot adjust the pressure on the toilet. But you can adjust the stop setting screw at the top of the float arm. If the water is coming in too fast you can adjust the valve where the toilet water line connects to the wall water supply. Closing the valve a little will slow down the flow of water and it will take a little longer to refill the toilet water tank.

I have a kohler model 703 # sb78drn, the toilet keeps running. i changed the flapper and now the toilet doesn't stop running. please help?


Try adjusting the float level. The float is what tells the toilet to stop filling. If the float is set too high, then water will just go down the overflow tube and never be able to get to the level it needs to turn off.

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

The tank is filling to the top of the tube. How do I lower the level in the tank?


Adjust the float attached to the fill valve. Some simply slide up and down on a racheted adjustment bar. Others screw up and down for adjustment. Flush after each adjustment until the proper fill level is acheived. Make sure there is still a sufficient amount of water at a given level to flush the toilet properly.

According to the Make and Model listed in the heading there is a couple of areas on the fill valve.
  1. The coupler nut may be loose. This holds the float valve, Tighten.
  2. The 'O' ring by the coupler nut may be worn/damaged. Replace.
  3. On the other side of the float valve Assembly is a cap and underneath the cap is a seal. check this for wear or damage.

Kohler two peice toilet the water just circles and will not flush.there is plenty of water in holding tank that run through


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.
