You have to adjust the float it is the thing inside of the tank it is either a ball on the end of a rod which you screw in to adjust or sometimes you have to bend it down a little. Or it is a float that goes straight up and down in that case there is a rod that runs down the length of the filler. Also check and make sure that the flapper in the tank is sealing all the way.

Roca dual push button Toilet will only flush when holding the push button continuously down until the cistern is empty. It won't completely flush like it should when pressing the button once.


allow tank to fill a little more by adjusting fill valve. When there's not enough water flowing from tank the stopper can over-power the water flow and cause the flush to stop by re-sealing.

Water ridge toilet manual


Thus if the tank is continuing to drain down through the bowl into the sewer line, the rubber flapper is not seating properly with the flush. These become worn and torn and are easily replaced. Or, even with a new one installed, sometimes they are not adjusted properly to create the appropriate balance between play and pull. Play being the upward connection to the flush handle and pull being the downward draw with the gravity flow of the water. Too much play it won't actually flush or lift properly. Too much pull it does not seat tightly or won't lift up long enough to allow enough water to flow through to flush the toilet...as engineered by the geniuses who designed the toilet. A simple adjustment of the chain links attaching the flapper to the flush handle and perhaps a side to side turn of the cuff so the flapper is aligned to seat properly as it drops should be sufficient. And test, test, test, test, and test again until you're absolutely sure you've got it adjusted correctly. One or two flushes is not sufficient!

Running Toilet


Sounds like your flush valve is shot. They are not that expensive and can be easily replaced.

Overtime the rubber in the flush valves break down and need to be replaced. Easier to replace the entire valve than fix the old one.

Water flow from cistern does not shut off after the toilet in flushed


You need to get inside the cistern and see which type of shut off device you have. It will either be a long armed ball float or a short armed bobbin type. Ensure the float has not come away from the arm and that the adjustment is correct.

Leaking toilet from overflow


if you flush and the water continues to run into the bowl the it is the flush washer that needs repalcing
If that water shuts off and the cistern fills and then continues so that it flows down the over flow pipe into the bowl the it is the water inlet control washer that needs replacing

Toilet continuously runs


Check level in tank to make sure water is not running down over flow pipe. The float in tank should be cutting water level off about 5/8 inch before top of pipe. If this is it adjust the float or valve for proper level it shoul dhave amark on stand pipe also..

Also check flapper and make sure it is sealing off after you flush it can get caught on chain or what ever is connected to it from handle. If it is too long you can adjust it also.

The gmax continues to run and won/t stop


if it worked fine and now it has stopped....then there is no adjustment that will fix it. If the fill valve is not shutting off you either need to replace the seal in the valve or get a new fill valve. If the water is leaking past the flapper you will need a new flapper.
