Is it a new installation or was it working before and now there's a problem?

It could be rod-clearance, it could be your water pressure or an obstruction in the inlet-filter, or maybe a couple of other things. Different fixtures have different minimum pressure requirements. Some work at 25 PSI static pressure at the connection but others require a 35 PSI minimum. This should be specified in the OEM's manual that you should have received with the toilet.

SOURCE: Toilet will not fill up

Some Toto fill valves have a plastic debris screen located at the inlet connection. Turn off the supply valve and remove the supply connection at the bottom of the tank. Use a mirror to inspect the screen for debris.
I agree w/ Smithbrother, the Fluidmaster fill valves are cheap and work well. The only thing they ever need is an occasional seal for $1.50 and 5 minutes to replace.

Check your flapper line to the flush handle. The flapper is in the tank on bottom. There shoiuld be a plastic line to handle or chain. :)

SOURCE: The toilet continues to run after flushing, i.e.e

The fill valve is stuck on and needs replacement, checking this part every year is a good idea.

I have a 2yr old Kohler K4634 toilet. After flushing the water level drops about 1 inch in the bowl after the bowl filled. This causes a lower level in the bowl than is recommended. The main issue


check to see if waster continues to run into the bowl after the plunger has returned to stop water flowing. If it is a slow leak then replace the flush washer on the stopper plunger.

Sounds like the water tank keeps filling


2 possibilities.1. The water level is set higher the the overflow tube. This will cause the water to run into the overflow continuously. You should be able to see this. 2. The large seal - bottom center of the tank - is leaking. This will cause the water level to slowly drop after a fill. The water tank will start to run again after flushing - BUT NOT CONTINUOUSLY. You should see if there is a small amount of water flowing from the rim to the bowl 15 seconds after the water has stopped running after a flush.

I have a dual flush corona and there is a stream of water leaking into the bowl. It periodically has to continue to fill when it gets low. I have replaced the round seal inside the tank at the very bottom....


There should be a float inside the tank of the toilet. Be sure that when the tank fills that the float is not getting stuck, or not floating all the way up and not sealing the flush valve at the bottom of the tank.

Is there a way to adjust the amount of water in your toilet bowl in order to improve the flush?


There is only one way to do this and that is to increase the water level in the tank. To explain the flush valve in the tank fills both the tank and refills the bowl at the same time if the valve runs longer to fill the tank it will at the same time put more water into the bowl. Now having said that the bowl will only hold a set amount of water before it starts running out into the drain. If the tank water level is at the line marked in the tank it will most likely not do much good to raise the level beyond that point and if the toilet you have is a 1.6 gallon flush tank I am sorry but learn to live with it.

On my eljer toilet, I get continuous running of the water. If I shut valve off and pump the tank, the running stops (but only for a week or so). Suggestions? model 150-403 power flush pf/2


I don't know what you mean by "pumping" the tank. If the toilet runs, then either the fill valve is defective or the seal on the flush valve is defective. First, check to see that when you move the float, the toilet stops running. If it does not, then replace the fill valve. If it does, then inspect/replace the seal on the flush mechanism at the bottom of the tank. If this seal is bad, you can usually see water continuously flowing (slowly) into the bowl. You will see ripples on the surface of the water in the bowl.

Our Toto bowl does not fill up enough after flushing unless the lever is held down. What do I do to fix it? We have well water and a bit of mineral does build up on the fill tube.


The only adjustment available is to control how full the tank will be for the next flush. The water that runs down into the bowl after flushing comes through the same valve that fills the tank, so the problem (and solution) is entirely with the amount of water that runs into the bowl while the tank is filling. The tank is filling sooner than enough replacement water can run into the bowl. Make sure that the tube (usually a 1/2 inch rubber tube) that runs from the float valve to the pipe that fills the bowl (usually a 1 inch pipe with an open top) is actually delivering all of it's flow down that pipe. If the flow of water being delivered by that tube is slow, you will have to find and eliminate the restriction. You might be able to pull of the rubbber tube off of the float valve and stick a small drill bit (just using your fingers, not a drill) into the fitting where you pulled off the tube.

Tank not holding fill level...


Most likely, you do not have a good seal on the flapper valve at the bottom of the tank. To confirm, try this:
Turn off water and flush toilet. Then lift up the flapper valve and put a light coating of vaseline on the mating surface where it contacts the toilet tank when closed.
Turn water back on and see if it continues misbehaving. If that fixes it, it was a bad seal. Usually that is all it takes.

When flushing toilet, water spins in bowl but does not flush away. Have used plunger to no avail. Any suggestions?


It's either plugged or the tank isn't filling properly.
If it's the tank then the fill valve in the tank needs to be adjusted. There should be a screw to adjust the float ball. Back the screw out until the fill valve starts to run;let the water run until the tank fills to the fill line then turn the screw back in.Try flushing the toilet. If that doesn't work then the toilet is probably plugged.
If it's plugged you may need to rent/borrow a snake to clear the line.
