Remove the top of the water tank.
check to be sure that the flush cover (about in the center of the tank) can close all the way. It seats into a 2 inch hole - and must seat all the way around. If it fails to seat, then the fill valve (on the left side of the tank) will continously let water into the tank.

As a starter experiment, you may try just turning whe water off at the wall shut off. Then inspect the tank to confirm that it is losing water.
If confirmed, then the above solution is correct.
If it is not losing water, then the fill valve is faulty and will need to be replaced (it is allowing water to over flow into the "OverFlow" tube.....

I recommend that you keep the water turned off at the wall until the toilet is needed - and the problem is repaired.

New toilet 540 fluidmaster water in tank keeps topping off every half hour


The problem may be the flapper that seals between the tank and bowl is leaking or the overflow pipe may have a crack in it. I wouled replace the flapper first and check the overflow pipe for cracks.
Hope this helps.

Kohler toilet not flushing completely


You have a partial clog, as if someone tried to flush paper towels or something that shouldn't have gone in the drain.

Try plunging, first, then a toilet snake, or you may have to get a pro to pull the toilet off the floor and run a larger snake if it's further down...

Have the Toto Ultramax II toilet and it was installed 3 months ago. Have an issue where the GMAX fill valve is not functioning properly. The water keeps running because it always go over the fill line....


An installation guide for your toilet can be found here:

http://admin.totousa.com/Product%20Downloads/0GU013Z,%20ONE%20PIECE%20TOILETS,%20V.08.pdf

See the top of page 5 for guidance on setting the water level. Make sure you are turning the screw the correct direction (clock-wise) to reduce the fill level.

Is the refill tube properly connected? Should be connected to fill valve nipple and the other end clipped to direct flow to the inside of the overflow pipe.

Is water flow only through the overflow tube or is there leakage from the flush valve? Being only 3-months old you should not be having problems due to breakdown of rubber seals; however, check to make sure the toilet flapper is properly sealing against the flush valve.

If none of this helps with your problem you made need to replace the fill valve. On page 10 of your guide is a parts list; you can identify your part numbers and shop on-line for an idea of replacement costs:

My toilet runs constantly


How old is the toilet? Might have lime buildup in the housing that's keeping the float from raising completely. The whole assembly is relatively inexpensive at Wal-Mart, and very easy to change. It would probably be less hassle than trying to fix the old one. I found that out after wasting a lot of time trying to mix my old one. :-)

Toto fill valve continual problem, new toilet


There are cheep fill valves and ther better built fill valves, so make sure you buy aa quality fill valve. Also buy a pressuer gauge at ahard ware store and check water pressure level at a faucet outlet. Screw gauge onto water fauct leave a little room for air to escape when water is drippng out tighten the hose bib on the gage turn on the faucet and read the pressure. If it's more than 50 PSI you need to lower the water pressuer. I need to know if your on a, on site underground well,or are on city water to tell you what you need to do to to fix this problem. If there is one. thanks for using Fix-ya if you want more info post here.

Kohler is correct. The most likely cause of this problem is an obstruction in the common vent stack that both toilets share. When you flush the old toilet it need more air to flush and will get it from the easiest source (your new water saver toilet). First adjust the float level in the old toilet so it won't use as much water or just stick a brick in the tank to take up space.Second, run a snake down the vent stack from the roof to check for obstructions. Birds will sometimes nest in there.
