    Does this toilet have the original hardware, or has it been replaced with Fluidmaster parts?

I would change fill valve. You can use a simple valve such as a Fluidmaster 400A and change it youself if you feel comfortable doing it yourself,just follow insruction on box. Thanks

Why do i have to hold my toilet lever to flush?


Hi Nathan:
If you lift the tank lid off and flush the toilet you will see that a flapper valve lifts to let the water drain from the tank. The flapper valves are designed to stay in the closed position when the tank fills, but to float when the tank is flushed.
The problem will probably be that the flapper valve no longer floats due to saturation with water, or a leak that has allowed water inside the float.
The fix is to replace the float valve. Parts are available at most hardware and plumbing supply stores.
Cheers

Sounds like your flush valve is shot. They are not that expensive and can be easily replaced.

Overtime the rubber in the flush valves break down and need to be replaced. Easier to replace the entire valve than fix the old one.

Taking the top of the tank off wont hurt anything but the assembly it might A few things to check look in the tank make sure nothing is blocking the flapper at the bottom thats the thing that lets the water drain into the bowl if it is clear check make sure the chain or line that connects the flush handle to the flapper is not kinked causing it to hold the flap up enough to let the water drain. If these are ok sometimes sediments will make the float device the thing that goes up and down when the water goes out or fills, whether its a ball or a canister type it may stick reach in and lift the floater if the water stops then adjust the floater some have a screw on the canisters to adjust some an arm some the whole mechanism shaft screws up and down to adjust if its the ball hold the metal arm firm next to the base and bend it slightly down on the other end so the ball goes further into the water so when you release it lifts it up better don't bend to much check and bend more if you need to. If its a ball make sure water is not getting into it by feeling if so replace it. The canister you want to adjust it so it goes down some so the water will push it up more and try to stop it. If moving it by hand did not fix the problem dont use these methods replace the whole thing for around $20 just turn the water off flush the tank get all the excess water out and go to town its not hard the package should help with directions make sure you have pipe tape and if you don't know about the tape ask the hardware dealer to explain how it goes on just a couple wraps. The hardware store can help you pick the one you need tell them what yours looks like and they can help find a replacement.

The toilet isnt flushing and water is not filling into the cistern? (at the top) how do i fix this problem??


If I understand correctly, the tank that holds water is not filling up with water.

1) If this is the problem, then you need new toilet fill valve.
Or clean sediment out of existing fill valve by removing and soaking in CLR calcium rust lime.

To replace fill valve:
Look at water supply line coming into tank.
Supply line connects to fill valve.

Buy new fill valve at home center, hardware store, or walmart, or online.
There are two nuts connected to valve. Each nut has companion rubber washer

One nut & washer seal water supply line to tank.
Second nut & washer seal valve to tank.

2) If water tank is full of water, but water does not flow rapidly into bowl when you push flush lever, then your toilet is clogged with sediment.

To solve sediment problem when flush water will not flow rapidly into tank, then buy CLR calcium lime rust.
Pour CLR down into overflow tube located inside water tank.
Make a funnel by cutting off bottom of water bottle, or cut paper cup into a funnel.
Pour cup-full after cup-full of CLR into overflow tube until sediment and CLR are coming out all flush holes located under-rim on bowl.

3) Add a comment for more free help.
Also take advantage of fixya phone service.
For a price, expert speaks with you over phone while you work on timer or any do-it-yourself project.
Fixya is always less expensive than a service call.

Water runs after it fills up?


I am not familiar with that model, but it sounds like your fill valve is leaking or the water level in the tank is too high. Take the toilet tank top off and flush the toilet. When the water gets full and you hear the water stop ( except for your leak) look at the flush valve. Is water running over the top of it and running into the hole in the middle? Then the float need adjustment.
If you are hearing you leak still, lift up on the float. Did it stop? if so the valve may need adjustment due to it not seating completely. You can probably find something online (youtube) easier than I can explain it.

Toto toilet is constantly running, even though the tank is full


it sounds like it might be the floater ball in the toilet you can adjust the tension on it usually with a screwdriver.... if you look from the top down you should see a screw on the top of the arm that holds the floater adjust the tension and hopefully this will work

My dual flush toilet fills up slowly how do i fix


Lift the tank lid off, place it somewhere safe for a moment, and look at what happens: If you're talking about jiggling the handle to get the tank to start to fill with water, then it sounds like the chain or rope is out of adjustment. It can't be TOO TIGHT or the water will leak past your flapper (will cause your dripping noise, tank water level will leak down, causing constant refills), and it cant be TOO LOOSE or the toilet won't flush correctly. Since you didn't mention trouble flushing the toilet, I think that it may be a little too TIGHT. When you jiggle the flush lever-it is supposed to pull a chain or cable to open the flapper at the bottom of the tank. Flush the tank and watch what happens-all the way through to refilling the tank with water and shutting off the water refill valve-Does the flapper get stuck on the chain or something? It is supposed to fall back down to allow the tank to refill after flushing out your toilet. Does the chain look very loose? The dripping sound you described indicates that the flapper is not sealing 100%. The flapper is very easy to replace, you just have to get the adjustment set for when you flush the toilet how sensitive you need it. You amy have to play with it a little bit before you get the adjustment correct.

Hope this helps!

Toilet makes noise as though it has been running and quickly tops up the tank. I cannot take the top off to see what is going on because of the dual flow system.


The flapper is leaking and needs to be replaced. Different toilets have different style flappers, but they all forma seal from the tank to the bowl at the flush valve. When the flapper is lifted, the water rushes into the toilet bowl.

When they develop leaks, the tank slowly drains, (often unoticable) and eventually the fill valve senses the tank is not completely full and "tops off" the tank.

Buy the best quality flapper available, as the cheap low quality ones often leak right out of the package.
