Flapper closes too soon
Add some styrofoam to the chain close to the flapper that will keep it up a little longer but not too much, if you do it will stay open and will keep running.
you can find it at a major hardware store

Toilet Flapper drops too soon and causes incomplete flush. Replaced with new red Korky, and adjusted chain tighter AND looser.


Try adjusting the water level in the tank. Most flappers close as the water in the tank flows out to a certain level. Try allowing more water to come in to the tank. I doubt the weight of the chain has any effect on it closing too early.

How do I Stop leak down side into water in the bowl between flushes?


Was the flapper chain adjusted properly? If too tight it will not sit flat to close the hole. If too loose will not flush properly. Also check the rim where the flapper valve closes for any cracks, nicks, flat or broken spots. Any of those will keep the flapper from sealing.

Flapper valve closes too quickly


Fill the breather hole (1/8" hole) inside the flapper.This is designed to let air out so the flapper will sink. Now it floats longer letting in more water. 25%percent more in my case.

Flapper closes way to quick. Have to hold handle down for complete flush. This is in an Amer. Stand. toilet. I have adjusted the chain and the flapper dail with no help. I work in the plumbing Dept. at...


Hi, American Standard uses a special large type of flapper that is designed for it. If I recall correctly,
It is black plastic with a device designed to delay the closing of the flap. It also has a special chain that is not like other flappers. Home Depot should stock these flappers. Fluidmaster makes a version of it that they sell.
Hope this helps,
Best Regards,
Mark

Flush stops too soon


If this is a standard toilet, take the lid off the tank (the back part) and adjust the length of chain that runs from the flush handle rod down to the flush flapper. Usually if the chain is too long it will stop flushin too soon. It also could be that the rubber flapper valve in the bottom of the tank is worn out and needs replaced. (any hardware store).

The flush valve does stay open long enough after flushing


Which style of flush valve do you have? If it is the dual-flush option (solids/liquids) I do not know how to adjust those. If you have a traditional style, then the flapper or ball is closing too soon. You need to adjust the guide arm (flush ball) higher or shorten the chain between the flapper and the handle. Adjust this carefully or you will have it fail to seat and the toilet will constantly run.

I hope this helps.

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.
