Hi,
If you can't find the problem inside the toilet, turn off the water at the supply valve of the toilet.
Inside the back of the toilet there if a "flapper" that is probably bad. It is the rubber or plastic piece that lifts up when you push the flush handle. This is very easy to replace. Go to your local hardware or home discaount store and they will have numerous flappers that can be used for many different toilets. Follow the included intructions and you will be able to replace this your self.

Toilet pumps when not in use


sounds as though there may be a trickle of water going in to the pan from the cistern. To check you could turn OFF the water to the cistern, or tie the float arm up. then flsu the water in the cistern so that no more water will trickle in to the loo. Leave it a goodly time, several hours say, and monitor if it still runs for a few mins every hour. Actually running for two/three mins is rather a long time but first i would think you need to eliminate the possibility of the above steady trickle from the cistern.

About every 20 minutes or so, more water is released into the bowl from the tank. Toilet is less than 1 yr old ,model 4021


The flapper that stops water from entering the bowl after flushing needs adjustment. The chain is probably to short.

Occasionally after flushing ,water continues to trickle slightly in toilet bowl. Have changed flapper twice. Wondering if the seat that the flapper sits on is worn or something. It looks ok. Have a one...


Make sure the flush valve is closing properly and that the water level is not set too high causing water to enter the overflow tube. If the flapper seat is damaged and cannot just be be cleaned, you can add a new seat right over the old one. Fluidmaster sells them for just a few dollars. Most hardware stores have them - Home Depot and Lowes stock them.

Pretty new toilet seems to drip down the drane pipe after flush. Sounds like a little trickle as if there is too much water in the bottom an it is running out.


Sounds like the flapper isn't sitting properly. Take the lid off the tank and put a few drops of food coloring in it. Let it sit for a while (do not flush). If the water in the bowl turns that color, that means the flapper needs replacing. Simple to do and costs about 5 bucks. Good luck

Toto flapper seems ok but toilet keeps slow trickle into the bowl


The water inlet valve should close completely and stop water from coming into the tank before the water level reaches the "small tube." (This is the overflow tube.)

There may be an o-ring or rubber gasket inside the valve that can be replaced. If not, you would have to replace the water inlet valve.

Toto Drake with Gmax that oesn't completely shut off.


When you look in the bowl of the toilet, do you see the water trickling? If so then the flapper needs to be replaced.

Also, does the water run intermitentedly? As in every 2 to 5 minutes does the water kick back on to refil the tank? If yes then the answer is yet again the flapper.

Now if the water is constantly running then you can try bending the float arm (the ron that is connected to the big floating ball) down and see if that helps. If not then the next step is to replace the fill valve assembly.

Both of these together will run you about $20-$30.

Problem overflow valve


Firstly open the top of the Cistern(Where water is held)There are two most common Cistern internals ie;Ball-O-Stop(Ball on a arm connecting to valve). This one is easy, you just bend the arm downwards in the centre so that the ball shuts the valve at a lower level; The other type has a shaft(plastic) with a thread on it, connecting it to a "small bowl" that lifts up as water enters the cistern. To adjust the water level in cistern you have to turn the thread(Shaft) lowering the "small bowl" wich will shut the inlet to the cistern at a lower level. Hope this helps
