Water fills tank slowly

After flushing the toilet the water fills the tank very slowly. Previously the tank would not flush at all as there wasn't any water in the tank. fixed the float so that the water started filling up the tank, but it does this very slowly.

Check your angle stop ==valve underneath close to the wall see if it's open all the way if it is and you still have the same problem then go ahead and shut it off, disconnect it from the toilet and the valve and see if there is anything stuck in the hose (a gasket maybe) if nothing blocks the hose then. Reconnect the hose starting from the valve put a bucket on the other side to catch the water and open the valve as if to clean the hose. After you do that reconnect the hose and try again if still does not work properly then you have to replace the fill valve (the tower looking stuff inside the tank)

if it works for you, don't forget to rate me

thx

Why does the water valves continually pulse?


It's hard to answer such a general question. I will assume your reference refers to a toilet, and that 'pulse' is regards a recurrent slight refill action of the tank fill valve. If this is the case the cause is probably a slowly leaking flush valve. When the tank water level drops enough to activate the fill valve, there will be a slight refill action (pulse) to top up the tank water level. It will repeat until the leaking flush valve is fixed.

How do i flush the pipes out? (when i flush the toilet it will not re-fill water) one of the answers was to flush the pipes


If you have a supply shut off to fixture shut it off and disconnect supply line from inlet to toilet . If your supply line to toilet is a flexible line then bend it so that you can direct water to small container. Slowly turn valve on to see what flow rate is at that point. If flow rate is not good then I would shut water off to house and replace valve. If flow rate to toliet is good I would reccomend you replace flush vallve. To do this shut off water supply to toilet. Disconnect supply nut to bottom of flush valve. There will be a retaining nut that holds flush valve in place in toilet tank. Remove flush valve after removing fill tube from flush valve to overflow tube. Replace with toto replacement valve or use Fluidmaster 400A. Instructions on box of 400A are easy to follow and if you have flex connector you won't need supply line washer. I would reccomend that before you install new valve that you put rubber gasket on shank of valve and slid it about halfway up the shaft. Make sure that inside of tank is dry and use a small bead of silicon caulking on top and bottom side of shaft gasket. slid gasket the rest of the way on valve shank,install in tank and put on retaing nut hand tight. Push down on top of valve and using channel lock pliers finish tightening nut securely.You may need to reach into tank and grasp valve body to stop it from turning. There are other things you can do if you have a working supply valve. Shut off valve and remove screws that hold top of valve in place and remove and clean surfaces. You can turn valve on slowly to help flush out any rust or mineral deposits. I hope this is of some help to you. Thanks

When I flush thenwater fills to the fill line and slowly keeps on dripping over the top of the flush valve tube.


I would ckeck to see where water fill line is inside toilet tank and then adjust flush valve to try to get it to shut off at this point. Not knowing whether your toilet still has original flush valve it is hard to tell you how to fix it. If it has float mounted on rod to flush valve there is usually a set screw on the top of the flush valve in the center. Turn this screw clockwise to make valve shut off sooner. Try to set it so that water shuts off when it is at fill mark. If float is mounted on brass float rod you can support rod closest to flush valve with left hand and carefully bend rod down a little with your right. This will cause flush valve to shut off sooner. If the seat is worn to badly in flush valve you will need to replace it.

Just hooked up new pressure asist tank & bowl,turned on water to it,and it want flush.what i mean about want flush, is it will flush but water does'nt go down,as if it's not staying open long enough.


Sounds like you have a clogged drainline or vent-stack. Fill a large bucket with about three gallons of water and dump it quickly into the bowl. If the drainline/vent is clear, the toilet will "flush" like a gravity toilet and the water will drain from the bowl almost as fast as you can pour it in.

If the water level in the bowl slowly rises (as if it's about to overflow) and then slowly drains, you have a clog somewhere.

All toilets, regardless of their flushing mechanism, require a clear, unoibstructed drain/waste/vent system to extract waste.

If the toilet "flushes" with the bucket of water, you may want to call Flushmate tech support (the number is on top of the tank) or check out the installation and troubleshooting videos at howto.flushmate.com.

Hope this helps.

I have a toto toilet that doesn't start to refill until a couple of minutes after I flush. Any ideas. Thanks.


Several ideas. Start to fill? Have you looked inside the tank to see what's going on? If it just filling very slowly, then you most likely have some calcuim build up inside your flush valve blocking some flow, if this is the case you will have to clean the flush valve. If your flush valve is staying up and the toilet is "running" unitil the float drops. The float (either the arm ballcock style, or newer fluidmaster) is rubbing on either the flush lever or side of the tank, and taking longer to drop to let the water start flowing. I

On my eljer toilet, I get continuous running of the water. If I shut valve off and pump the tank, the running stops (but only for a week or so). Suggestions? model 150-403 power flush pf/2


I don't know what you mean by "pumping" the tank. If the toilet runs, then either the fill valve is defective or the seal on the flush valve is defective. First, check to see that when you move the float, the toilet stops running. If it does not, then replace the fill valve. If it does, then inspect/replace the seal on the flush mechanism at the bottom of the tank. If this seal is bad, you can usually see water continuously flowing (slowly) into the bowl. You will see ripples on the surface of the water in the bowl.

My dual flush toilet fills up slowly how do i fix


Lift the tank lid off, place it somewhere safe for a moment, and look at what happens: If you're talking about jiggling the handle to get the tank to start to fill with water, then it sounds like the chain or rope is out of adjustment. It can't be TOO TIGHT or the water will leak past your flapper (will cause your dripping noise, tank water level will leak down, causing constant refills), and it cant be TOO LOOSE or the toilet won't flush correctly. Since you didn't mention trouble flushing the toilet, I think that it may be a little too TIGHT. When you jiggle the flush lever-it is supposed to pull a chain or cable to open the flapper at the bottom of the tank. Flush the tank and watch what happens-all the way through to refilling the tank with water and shutting off the water refill valve-Does the flapper get stuck on the chain or something? It is supposed to fall back down to allow the tank to refill after flushing out your toilet. Does the chain look very loose? The dripping sound you described indicates that the flapper is not sealing 100%. The flapper is very easy to replace, you just have to get the adjustment set for when you flush the toilet how sensitive you need it. You amy have to play with it a little bit before you get the adjustment correct.

Hope this helps!

The water in the tank is not filling to the water line, thereby not providing enough water to flush properly. Adjust the float so that the tank fills to the water line
