Your leak is most likely caused by either a worn flapper or a worn valve seal. Best bet is to replace both as the coat for a new valve assembly and flapper is about $12 at Home Depot. Look for the Fluidmaster display in the plumbing department. Easy to follow instructions are included. Since you have a one-piece toilet you'll need to be sure that it will fit so measure the depth of the tank.

Problem with water leakage at flapper valve on eljer toilet


recheck flapper may have replaced it with wrong one

Nov 26, 2012 | Home

My toilet keeps running. I tried to adjust the float with a phillips but that did not work. There is slight leaking into the chamber over the top.


If there is a continual leak in to the toilet bowl you will likely need to replace the flush valve or the toilet flapper.

As a first step try try cleaning the sealing surface of the flush valve to se if the flapper will seat and make a seal.

If this does not work and the flapper is visibly detioriated and breaking down shut off the water supply, remove the toilet flapper and visit your local plumbing supply store to purchase a suitable replacement. Install the new flapper, turn on water supply.

These illustrated instruictions may also assist:

Although less likely, if the sealing surface of the flush valve is damaged or detioriated proceed with replacement of the flush valve. Again turn off water supply and follow the instructions set out here:

If there is not a leak in to the toilet bowl and the water flow does not shut off completely, then water is flowing through the fill valve and the overflow pipe and you may need to adjust the float and float rod to allow clsoure of the fill valve. See here:

The toilet has been leaking slowly and it's trying to fill us every few mins, seems like the flapper or the seal is leaking. How do I know which one?


hold the flapper down and see if it stops leaking but it is almost positively the flapper. turn the water off, remove the old flapper, adjust the chain on the new flapper to the length of the old flapper, wipe the port area where the flapper seals to remove residue, install new flapper.

My Crane toilet is slowly leaking into the bowl. It is not the flapper (which I replaced) and doesn't seem to be from high water pressure. Could it be the seal?


Check your over flow pipe in the tank to see if you need to lower the water level amount in the tank. If thats not it, it could be the seal thats under your flapper between the tank and base. Simple fix just alittle time consuming

I cannots top leaking. The toilet is full with water but from time to time it opens the walve to get more water in.


When a fill valve opens up from time to time to let more water in it is because the rubber flapper is not sealing properly and is allowing water to slowly seep out.
Toto Caryles have a 5 year parts warranty so keep this in mind if ti applies. If replacing the flapper doesn't solve the seepage problem then the flush valve (the white assembly the flapper connects to) may have to be replaced.
Be sure to install the new flapper at the exact chain length as the one you removed.

I have the bellevue model and it keeps running even when the toilet has been flushed. It continuely seems to need more water and leaks a bit of water all of the time. It is a new toilet!


Your flapper is not sealing at the bottom of the tank. You can either return the toilet, replace the flapper, or try smearing a little vaseline on the underside of the flapper lip where it contacts the tank bottom. The latter may be all it needs to seal a tiny leak.
