Mostly not anymore. If you have a lever style float, sometimes there is a 2nd screw that limits how far down the float is allowed to go. You can check that setting, it needs to not jamb itself into other items in the tank.

How do I increase the water flow into the tank of a Verona toilet


1.) Check to make sure that the water shut-off valve is all the way open (the water valve a.k.a. the shut-off valve is located behind the toilet near the wall or the floor, depending upon installation placement.) The water supply line attaches to it and feeds up into the refill valve assembly inside the toilet tank.
2.) Check the float assembly or the refill valve assembly, make sure it hasn't bound up by getting caught on another part inside the tank.
3.) Check the water level to make sure that it sits about 1 inch below the overflow tube in the middle of the tank. If the water is lower, adjust the float inside the tank to raise the water level. For models that have a ball float, turn the screw on top of the fill valve clockwise to raise the water level. For models that contain a cylinder float valve attached to the fill valve, squeeze the clip on the side of the float and pull the float up until the water reaches the desired level.

Carburater over flowing out of the top of the carbuater what needs to be done?


Either you have dirt in the float valve, or the float is defective, or out of adjustment. The float is supposed to cut off the flow of gas just like the float in a toilet.

Water level in bowl low


Turn knob on top of float ball to increase ball height which will increase water column. Up to 1" of overflow tube.

We just installed the Cimerron two piece. After flushing the toilet, it will not stop running. Water just goes into the over flow section.


  • The exact cause of a Kohler Cimarron toilet running non-stop depends on the exact model of toilet owned. In some, the lift chain connected to the handle can become kinked, preventing the ball seal from covering the drain completely. Just unkink the chain to fix this. In other cases, the float ball is stuck against the side of the tank, preventing it from returning to its normal horizontal position. When this happens, the toilet's tank doesn't stop filling with water. The excess continuously flows into the overflow pipe. Dislodge the float ball from the side of the toilet and this should clear the problem. Likewise, you might consider shortening the armature on which the float ball sits, so it won't become stuck again.

    I have a toto toilet that doesn't start to refill until a couple of minutes after I flush. Any ideas. Thanks.


    Several ideas. Start to fill? Have you looked inside the tank to see what's going on? If it just filling very slowly, then you most likely have some calcuim build up inside your flush valve blocking some flow, if this is the case you will have to clean the flush valve. If your flush valve is staying up and the toilet is "running" unitil the float drops. The float (either the arm ballcock style, or newer fluidmaster) is rubbing on either the flush lever or side of the tank, and taking longer to drop to let the water start flowing. I

    When I flush my mascerating toilet, the tank behind the toilet floods over. How do I fix this?


    I assume you are referring to the holding tank and not the pump case.
    The bowl float system on the couple SaniPlus toilets I have seen are similar to standard toilets. This will be a plastic float that slides up and down the water inlet tube. It will be attached to a shut off lever at the top of the tube by a metal rod. The float and rod are attached to each other by a "V" shaped clip. To adjust the shut off level you need to slide this clip up/down the rod.
    If you remove the top of the tank and flush you should be able to see this working when flushing. Try shutting off the water flow by moving the shut off lever by hand. Use the water shut off at the inlet line leading into the tank to start and stop the water before it over flows if the lever does not work.
    If the lever does not stop the flow then you have a problem with the water inlet mechanism and it may need to be replaced.
    If your inlet mechanism is different from what I described please respond back with the model number of your SaniPlus.
    Hope this helps.

    How do I adjust tank fill valve to increase water level in toilet?


    There are many different fill valves out there so it would be a little hard to tell you how to adjust your particular one without knowing the brand and type of the fill valve.
    So I will give you a generic adjustment.
    Look for someway/something to adjust your float in the toilet tank.
    There should be a screw, moveable metal, something that will adjust your float.
    Once you locate the adjustment, you can then adjust your water level in the toilet tank.
    Adjust the water level in the toilet tank to be about a 1/4-1/2 inch before it flows out of the overflow tube when the water shuts off.
    Good Luck, I hope this helped.
    Please rate me, Thanks

    Increase water in toilet tank-low flush Toto toilet


    Yes adjust the float level to raise the amount of water in the tank, If you have a float that is a ball around the tank you will have to turn the water off and remove the hose from the tank and remove the nut then pull the water float device out and you will see a clap on the bottom of the float you will turn the float base so that it gets longer, increase it by two inchess so that you increase water flow. Reinstall into the tank hook it all back up and leave the lid off turn on the water and watch the water level rise be sure the float shuts the water off before it over flows, if it starts to over flow then fush it to bring the water down giving you enought time to shut off the water valve.
    There is a problem adding low water systems to older septic systems. The septic pipe settles in the ground over time and may cause a ~~~ in the pipe thus causeing blockage. For future reference you can add a one gallon bottle of water in the tank like a milk jug or a used up bottle of puerified water that you have drank and this will decrease it by one gallon per flush. Hope this helps. If you need more asstance just posttothis reply!

    Not enough water in the bowl


    The fill valve probably has a float that surrounds the pole that extends from the bottom of the tank. The float usually has a metal rod that comes down with a clip to adjust the float. Move that clip up so that the float sits higher-this should add more water to the tank.
