Question about Home

1 Answer

The toilet refills to the overflow tube and then keeps on pumping water. It won't stop until I press down quickly on the top of the black Phillips-head plastic screw that's labeled "water level adjustment" with an arrow pointing to that screw head. I can't turn the plastic screw head any further to the right as the arrow on the screw head indicates.

Hi,
Carefully take a hold of the rod that goes to the ball and bend it so the ball points down further into the tank...this will get the water to stop then before it goes over the top...

If the ball is heavy and is full of water then you need to replace the whole fill valve...

Refill tube constantly detaches from fill valve


A longer piece of tubing may solve the problem. Put the extra down the overflow tube so it won't pop out. Hope this helps.

make sure you have the overflow tube, ( the small black one) attached to the clip so it doesn't go too far down the fill tube,, otherwise it causes a siphon and you will hear a trickle, you can also turn off the water, and grab the top of the valve, turn it 1/8 of a turn, and check for any debris inside that cavity, clean and reassemble

The water in the tank continues to leak out and the tank has to continue to refill. I have replaced the flapper, I have taken the tank off the toilet and check gasket alignment. The tank does not leak...


There are only a coulple of places that the toilet could leak or, overflow and give you this problem. When you replaced the flapper valve, did it have an extra piece of rugger on it? Universal flappers have a round piece on them that are designed to fit over the overflow tube. If you flapper had this piece and you don't have need for it, you need to cut that out, if the flapper "hooks" to the overflow assembly. Leaving that piec on can contort the shape of the flapper and make it so it won't seal. If you are noticing constant movement(slight swirl) in the bowl, make sure the back tank is not constantly overflowing into overflow tube. If this is the case, your water level is too high. You will either need to adjust the water level and/or replace the fill valve. If you can hear the toilet running or leaking, push down on the flapper, if it stops, you have a problem with the flapper and/or the chain adjustment. When you install the flapper, you have ton make sure the chain is long enough to let the flapper fall and seal but, not so long that it can tangle or get between the the flapper and it's seal below it.

The overflow pipe should be attached to a small clip that holds it in position over the over flow pipe. If it is loose or attached to the outside it will do what yours is doing.

Most toilets use less bowl water. But to check yours, be sure that the little plastic refill hose goes down the overflow tube.

The water will not refill! The inner plastic part doesn't work and it's only one year old! I must pour a bucket of water into the bowl to flush waste.


Does this tank have the plastic bucket around the flapper inside the tank. If so this is a water saver toilet. A few tricks to increase the water. I have had to remove the bucket by cutting it maybe half into to increase the gpm.
This will increase it to more than 1.6 gpm's. It can be cut down just be careful in doing it if this is the problem.

Next make surethe fill valve has line running and attached to overflow tube. This will fill the bowl with the needed water for it and the tank.
Next make sure the water is set to the mark either on the tank or the overflow tube. If no mark to within 5/8" to top of overflow tube .

How to fix fill water shooting up and over when flushing?


I don't exactly know what you mean so i will cover all the basics. The fill valve sends fills water in 2 locations. 1) the fill valve fills at the low end (from the bottom to the top) of the tank. This is the flush water level. It needs to be stopped by a float switch before the water overflows into the over flow tube.
2) the fill valve fills water via a small tube at the top of it which this tube NEEDS to be pointed into the overflow tube with a high arch. THIS water is filling your toilet bowl section to proper flushing height. If your water in your bowl does not reach proper height and someone removes this tube to aim it into the tank where the other water is stored, THEN you may have the problems you described and you will need to do several flushes to remove waste.
SO to reiterate 1) make sure your float cuts off and stops the filling cycle before the water flows into the over flow tube. This is done from 1 or 2 adjustment screws. and 2) make sure the small black tube is aimed down into the over flow tube with a good arch. The arch prevents back siphon.

WATER KEEPS RUNNING ON TOILET


The screw can be used but only for minor adjustments. The missing tube should be replaced. If this doesn't solve the problem purchase a repair kit. The repair kit comes with everything you need for about $20 and can be installed yourself (saving $$$ if you called a plumber)
