SOURCE: toilet tank fill valve sprays water towards lid

Hi bpmorr1,

It may be that the fill tube has come disconnected . It runs from the top of the fill valve to the overflow. The overflow is the tube that runs up the middle of the tank. The fill tube runs from the top of the fill valve to the top of the overflow tube. Kohler has a little clip that can sometimes come undone and cause spraying.


If that doesn't do it, turn the water off to the toilet and take off the tank lid. Partially open valve ( Slowly). Locate where spray is coming from. If it is in the area on top of the fill valve then yes, buy anew one. ( Fluidmaster )

Please rate this response and good luck, Phil

SOURCE: valve adjustment

You need to replace the flapper and you will need to purchase one specifically for the Kohler toilet. I have the same toilet and tried using a generic flapper and from experiance, it didn't work until I bought the correct one and I'm a plumber! Have a great night.

SOURCE: Running toilet

Mine does that also, here's what I found.; I am on a well and occasionaly sand gets caught in the valve thingy... Take the tank lid off, turn the arm that attaches to the float assy. 1/4 turn towards the back of the tank and take it out. Rinse off the gasket and pin as well as inside the hole. Reassemble and it should solve your problem.

SOURCE: 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).

SOURCE: not the float

Had a similar problem with a Wellworth after changing out all the replaceable parts. The new triangle gasket + nut kit was missing the flat anti-friction ring needed to allow the plastic nut to be hand tightened enough against the rubber gasket - without the ring the friction stops the nut turning, and you get a leak because there isn't enough pressure on the gasket. Retrieved the old ring from the trash & put it in - works perfect now! not sure if this is your problem too, but you might want to check the locknut / gasket tightness & seal.

Toilet is working perfect, fills to correct level, but it takes a long time to fill after flushing. It is not leaking out


Either...
Low water pressure.
The inlet valve isn't opening fully.
Small bore pipework.

Is the water pressure good in the rest of the property?
Is so then there may be an isolation valve on the toilet which isn't fully open.

New KOHLer toilet, worked great 2months... now


On top of the valve in toilet it has a cap that you can remove. It may have sometime obstructing flow.

Also on top it will have a screw for adjustment you could try to run it in a little. This is for valve 's with arms that extents float ball in tank. Just make sue that it is not touching any where in tank, causing it to hang up and run.

Toilet Bowl Water Level Slowly Drops


Check the fill tube in your toilet one easy way to see if it's leaking is get food coloring and pour in your tank to color the water this makes it easier to see and squeeze the tube in the tank when it's full if you see the colored water running down the middle of it you have a winner! if not you can look around for it sometimes the plastic under the flapper gets cracked too

Replaced toilet fill valve - now bowl water level a bit lower


First off,If the air vent was clogged the toilet would back up and overflow and when it did flush, it would make a gurgling sound.
secondly the water level in the bowl is not important as long as it covers the opening,The water is only there to keep out sewer gases so they don't enter your home and the shape of the trap will always maintain the proper amount of water needed to prevent this.
The previous water level may have been due to a partial clog that has since been removed.

Toilet will not flush


It sound like you have debris caught in the fill valve. Remove the top where the washer is and put your hand over it and slowly turn the water on to flush the fill valve. Replace the washer with a new one and then replace the top.

If you have the old ball and **** style, replaceing the diaphram is harder so I would recommend replacing it with a fluidmaster fill valve. Hope this helps.

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.
