Check your float for adjustment, water level should be within 5/8 of an inch from top of overflow pipe. Water shouldn't be filling up and running through overflow pipe.

Depending on your fill valve a fluid master has a level adjust on the fill valve to adjust.

A tank with a arm with a float ball on it has a screw on top of fill valve to adjust height.

Also check your flapper out also for sealing correctly.

Is the drip comming from the small fill tube going into the overflow? If so you may need to raise it a little. The nost common leak is from the flapper or seal. On rare occasioms the flush valve itself has a defect that will cause it to leak. Take a close look at the problem and Im sure you will find it. I hope this helps.

Refill tube constantly detaches from fill valve


A longer piece of tubing may solve the problem. Put the extra down the overflow tube so it won't pop out. Hope this helps.

I have a new Kohler Toilet that has a different flushing system from other Toilets. It's about 1 year old now and I'm noticing a Drip noise on the 1st floor under this Toilet. It looks to me like the water...


Basically, if water is flowing out of the overflow tube, then water must be coming in...I would suggest that you check the intake valve, it is probably not shutting off completely when the float comes up to the prescribed level,and continues to leak some water into the tank. That is what the overflow tube is there for.

I have a american standard toilet mode 4112 that keeps running.....any suggestions on how to fix it?


The flapper ball may be contaminated and not sealing or the float level has changed and needs adjustment. You should be able to see if the overflow has water flowing into it continuously.

The toilet keeps running constantly - the tube in the tank is overflowing and i can not get the dripping sound to stop. Anything i can do?


The noise is because your float in the toilet is set at too high of a level and it is overflowing and making noise.
Reset your float, to adjust the water level just below the overflow pipe...this should stop your noise.
If it does not correct the problem then you will have to replace the water control unit inside of the toilet tank.

Dripping overflow from toilet cistern.


there is an adjustment screw ontop of the fill valve assembly. Tighten this down and the water level should stop at a lower level unless the internal mechanism has crusted up.

Water drips into overflow valve after flushing


The purpose of the "Overflow" tube is to fill the toilet bowl. It should drip for a while. If it is continuously dripping there could be dirt or deposits on the ball **** valve. Shut off the water and dissasemble to see if there is deposits or perhaps a torn diaphragm.

My fridge is leaking because the drip pan is overflowing


I had this problem and it turns out that the filter cartridge had a leak and a constant drip into the drip pan. The drip pan is designed to capture the runoff from the self defrost but not a constant drip. The first thing you should do is remove your water filter cartridge - this will stop the drip until you can get a new cartridge. If that doesn't work just turn the water supply to the fridge off. You won't have ice but you won't have a leaky fridge either.
