I just installed a new anti-syphon ballcock. The water-level adjustmaent knob does not stop the water from continuing to run, till it overflows, constant running water. How can I get the water to stop filling the tank?

    very poor answer, not, in fact to the point...which was that the control being turned was not limiting the flow of water at all.

  • airsantacruz May 09, 2010

    wrong again...the adjustment knob is a screw (itself), and tightening the screw is the method used to increase the water level. I'm beginning to think I've been "screwed"

Dear Airsantacruz,
Check out your assembly is same as per this.....

I just installed a new anti-syphon ballcock.  The - backsiphonage2.gif To eliminate the risk of reverse flow in toilet tanks, anti-siphon ballcocks should be installed with a minimum 25mm (1 inch) air gap above the overflow tube. Figure 3 shows the correct installation of an anti-siphon ballcock while Figure 2 shows the incorrect use.

To eliminate the risk or reverse flow in hoses, inexpensive, easy-to-install hose connection vacuum breakers should be installed (Figure 4). Air gaps should also be left between water outlets and sources of potential contamination such as sinks or tanks.

You will see a screw on the valve. Tighten that screw inward to shut it off when the water level is were you want it at. It may take a few times to get it right were you want it

Hello,

You will notice that a float operated piston valve is mounted in the valve chamber to control water flow to the discharge chamber. A hush tube connected to the discharge chamber feeds the water to the bottom of the flush tank. A combined volume control and anti-siphon valve is mounted in the discharge chamber between the inlet and hush tube to regulate the rate of flow and to act as a vacuum break under conditions of negative pressure in the water supply line.

All you need to do is to adjust the valve to the water level you want it to reach.

Take care.

We have fitted a new ballcock on the watertank (cold) since then we have little cold water


Are you sure the ballcock is correctly adjusted to fill the tank to the required level? The float should have a screw on it which changes the height at which the valve is closed. if set too low you may not get enough head of water to feed the system. If set too high the tank will overflow.

This video deals with a toilet (WC) cistern but the principal is the same for any ballcock valve system.

Running toliet


Then you either have to lower the water height so that it doesn't overflow the overflow tube, or you have to replace a seal on the ballcock or replace the ballcock with a modern style.

Water keeps running, toilet not shutting off totally, tank will fill then we have to pull up float and hold it a while to stop water, doesn't overflow, just keeps running, doesn't shut off...


Hi snowjobs847...
Try resetting your float level to a lower water level in the tank, the extra pressure put on the seal may make it reseal.
If the above did not work:
You need to replace your "ballcock"...the ballcock (inlet valve) is non-repairable, has to be replaced with a new one if you cannot get it to stop leaking.

I installed a new ballcock assy and float. the toilet fills and shuts off but i can still hear an intermittant water flow. there were no instructions with the new valve so i dont know how to adjust.this is...


Without knowing what type of ballcock assembly you used I can't tell you how to adjust it. However there is one easy thing that you can check. If you have a plastic line going from the ballcock to fill/overflow in tank make sure that the bottom of that line is not below the water in the tank or it can create a siphon and make the water to run a small amount nostop. Hope this helps you. Have a good day and thank you.

Kohler Toilet: Filling apparatus works OK, but constantly overflows.


Hi jgikirstein..
You need to reset your water level inside of the tank, lower the ball float and that should stop your overflow problem.
If it continues to leak then you must replace your "ballcock assembly"...if it is defective it will also cause your tank to overflow...

When the toilet has been flushed (push button)it makes a hissing noise and then overfills so the water is going away in the overflow pipe. it was fitted 3 years ago. thankyou.


on your ballcock assembly there is an adjustment device (usually a screw) you just need to adjust the water level so it does not go over the overflow and have the "running" sound. there is a reccomended level usually stamped on the tank or the overflow tube.

hope this helps

Washer continuously fills but drains at the same time during rinse cycle.


you have the drain pipe too low into tthe house drain pipe, raise the washers drain pipe up , you only need four inches down into the hous drain

also the house drain pipe needs to be as high as the lid of the machine before you put the washer drain tube into the house drain

you have a syphoning effect
