Hello,

If your toilet makes all kinds of high-pitched whistling noises as the toilet tank is filling up, your ballcock with its float arm (refill valve) may be a bit outdated, that is, in need of an upgrade.

Thanks for contacting Fixya.

The tank is filling to the top of the tube. How do I lower the level in the tank?


Adjust the float attached to the fill valve. Some simply slide up and down on a racheted adjustment bar. Others screw up and down for adjustment. Flush after each adjustment until the proper fill level is acheived. Make sure there is still a sufficient amount of water at a given level to flush the toilet properly.

Toilet fill runs periodically works well but wastes water


Sounds like your flapper is leaking causing the water in the tank to lower until it triggers the fill valve. Replace the flapper (they're cheap and wear out easily).

How do you get the top plastic cap off the Kohler Ingenium flush


My Kohler Ingenium has no pins. The white cap is attached to the grey lever which must be lifted up before twisting both one-eighth turn counter-clockwise, and lifting off of fill tube. Turn the water supply back on and flush the tube out (cover with cup first!). Use a thin wire rod about 12" long to gently poke down into fill tube to clear any clogs. Also check where the small flexible fill tube exits from the main fill tube. Reassemble and cross your fingers.

Toilet won't stop running


I have a Kohler toilet and Ingenium fill valve 85297-AA. My toilet kept running, the fill valve black cylinder wouldn't pop up and when I added blue food coloring to the tank, the blue color seeped through to the toilet bowl. First I replaced the flapper and that allowed the fill valve piece on the cylinder to pop up correctly and blue dye no longer seeped through to the bowl. I still heard a hissing sound when the toilet tank had filled and no water was going into the overflow tube. I called the tech support number on the Kohler website 1-800-4KOHLER (1-800-456-4537) . Here's what solved the problem: Turn off the water to the toilet.Take off the white cap of the fill valve by pushing it down and turning it counterclockwise as you would open up a childproof pill container. Then unhook the metal hook. Hold a cup upside down (I used a strong plastic cup) over the part of the fill valve that is left in the tank and turn on the water. (You need the cup because otherwise the water will squirt up to the ceiling.) The water will flush out the fill valve. Replace the cap and the hook and flush.
