You might need a new float either that or the lever is just sticking

Can low water pressure cause my toilet cisterns to keep running


NO
persistent running is problem valve washers either in the water level control or the flush washer under the press buttons
low pressure will take a longer time to fill but when the level is attained the water will stop flowing in

Toilet driping sound at bottom after flushing


Either the flapper is not closing completely or the water level is too high so water runs out the overflow pipe. Level should be set at 1/2" below top of pipe.

I have a kohler model 703 # sb78drn, the toilet keeps running. i changed the flapper and now the toilet doesn't stop running. please help?


Try adjusting the float level. The float is what tells the toilet to stop filling. If the float is set too high, then water will just go down the overflow tube and never be able to get to the level it needs to turn off.

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.

Toilet doesn't turn off after flush


The Kohler Cimarron is one of the most popular and reliable toilets out there. (My Favorite). However, depending on the hardness of the water and if you use cleaner tabs in the tank, these factors can lead to a malfunction.
The first thing you should do is hold the flapper (rubber seal inside the tank that releases the water down to the bowl) down with your hands for a few seconds after a flush and see if the toilet stops running. Sometimes the flapper doesn't seal properly therefore the fill valve keeps working non stop. Stopping the fill while holding the flapper down will confirm that your flapper needs to be changed.
If this doesn't work then try this....
The other common problem with a running toilet is with the fill valve itself. There is an attached float on the fill valve that goes up and down depending on the water level. Once the water level rises, it rises the float, and the float tells the fill valve to stop filling the tank. While the toilet is running (hissing), try raising the float all the way up with your hand and see if it stops. If it stops but not consistently with every attempt, then you will need to change the fill valve. I believe the Fluidmaster 400A is the replacement model.

I have the Kohler toilet with the top actuator, it flushes fine but won't stop running. If I lift the tank top I'm making the toilet flush again. Can this be fixed or do i have to replace the whole system?


(Problem 1) if you can see the water running in the bowl it's a good chance that the flappers warn. you'll have to look at the angle where the light hits the water. The water will be rippling where the top of the water meets the inside of the bowl edge.

Our topflush toilet will nto stop running, once it is flushed. Theflapper seems secure. Not sure about the fill valve part.


after flushing observe flapper if it flops back and water is still getting by when tank is full than replace the flapper /if water is running down tube [high level]in tank than adjust level or if not responding to adjustment than flush unit is bad
