You can purchase a clip to hold that tube at your local plumbing shop or home improvement store. You may also call your local plumber and see if they have one It is one of those parts I usualy end up with a tray full at the end of the year and usualy throw away. Most of the time on a new install you use the old one. Hope this helps.

The water level in the bowl is too low after flushing. Can I adjust it somehow to leave more water in the bowl?


Make sure the fill tube in the tank from the fill valve is in the overflow tibe inside tank. The tube allows bowl to fill with water to correct level.

Memoirs leaking from seal between tank & bowl. Just replaced the gasket and still leaking


In 2008 I bought the Memoirs model that Lowe's was selling. I've had multiple tank/bowl gasket leak problems. When I went to get a replacement gasket this weekend, Kohler had changed the style of the tank/bowl gasket assembly in the current Memoirs model that Lowes sells. I wonder if this is because the old gasket assembly is known to be defective and prone to leaking?

When I called Kohler, it took two customer service associated, but I was granted a WHOLE NEW TOILET with the new style of tank/bowl gasket assembly. I just had to have the receipt for the (3 yrs ago) purchase. Kohler e-mailed a letter for a replacement toilet within about 15 minutes and before the end of the day, I had a whole new toilet in my bathroom.

I'm not a contractor. Just an average homeowner, so I can't say for sure that the old style (large, black, plastic rectangle on the bottom of the tank and a rather thin gasket ring) was defective or not. (At first Kohler offered only a replacement tank, but after hearing the number of times both I *and* plumbers have replaced the gasket, they did authorize the replacement of the entire toilet.)

the tube that goes from the fill valve to the fill tube may not be installed correctly. the water must be going in the tube and not the tank. also it is a water conserving toilet so it uses less water also it is a comfort height toilet and to make it taller the bowl is extended so the water may seem even more shallow.

Kohlers Memoire two piece is clogged. == My plunger has a round opening and it does not create a seal - the toilet bowl is oval. Is there a special plunger or some such.


Many plungers have an inner flange that is used for toilets in particular, make sure to pull that out. Even in most case a forceful use of the plunger will get some results so with this flange and enough elbow grease you should be able to acheive some results

How to fix fill water shooting up and over when flushing?


I don't exactly know what you mean so i will cover all the basics. The fill valve sends fills water in 2 locations. 1) the fill valve fills at the low end (from the bottom to the top) of the tank. This is the flush water level. It needs to be stopped by a float switch before the water overflows into the over flow tube.
2) the fill valve fills water via a small tube at the top of it which this tube NEEDS to be pointed into the overflow tube with a high arch. THIS water is filling your toilet bowl section to proper flushing height. If your water in your bowl does not reach proper height and someone removes this tube to aim it into the tank where the other water is stored, THEN you may have the problems you described and you will need to do several flushes to remove waste.
SO to reiterate 1) make sure your float cuts off and stops the filling cycle before the water flows into the over flow tube. This is done from 1 or 2 adjustment screws. and 2) make sure the small black tube is aimed down into the over flow tube with a good arch. The arch prevents back siphon.

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.

Bowl does not fill after flushing


Check the fill line in the tank and make sure it is connected from fill valve to overflow tube. After you flush the toilet it fill's the bowl and tank.

It should be a line about 1/4 ' in size coming from fill valve to overflow tube.

Bowl does not fill to correct level


why is this a problem to you? Is it filling too little or too much? First, you must make sure the refill tube is not more than 3/4" into the over -flow tube. If you have a float arm ,you must bend slightly the arm to change the level. Or if you have a fill valve float bobbin, you need to slide the adjustment up or down the appropriate amount. The water level should be at least 5/8" to 1" below the top of overflow tube. Goodluck, macgivor
