Question about Toto Aquia II Dual Flush Toilet

1 Answer

Toilet flushes fine but when the tank has filled it seems like the float ball keeps bobbing up and down letting more water or air into the tank. it will do this 5/6 times then quits. its almost like it is burping.

The ball float follows the tank water level, and repeated cycles of the float dropping and opening the fill valve would likely reflect a leak in the flush valve. You could try adjusting the float arm downward so that it will respond to a lower water level. Try turning off the supply valve, flushing it and listen for water leaking past the flush valve after it closes. If it does, replace the flapper or adjust the chain.

Our WaterRidge toilet tank will not fill with water


This sounds like the float is getting stuck , while the toilet is trying to fill if you see the float ball that is attached to a arm that pivots , if you lift the float up it should turn the water flow off from trying to fill the tank , some problems that can stop this are the rubber seal that lifts up when you press the flush button to allow water to flush the bowl does not seal back in a position so that the tank can never fill , sometimes the float ball can get stuck which stops it from rising up with the water level and shutting off the water , but my best guess is that the rubber seal has started to perish or distort and needs to be replaced you can find this right at the bottom of the tank and it is directly connected to the flush button ,so if you inspect inside the water tank and press the flush button you will see that it opens up and lets water pour into the toilet bowl but if a tight seal can not be made water will never fill the tank

How can I adjust the waterflow to a lower setting to make it 1.2 gallon flush from a 1989 3.5 gallon flush??


Keep in mind that if you limit the amount of water too much, the 3.5 gallon toilet will not flush properly.

This looks like an old Kohler Rialto toilet. The proper way to adjust the water level is to tighten down on the adjustment screw located on the very top of the fill valve. The fill valve is the the piece that the float ball screws into on the left side of the tank.
Tighten the screw down and flush the toilet. Wait for it to refill, and check the level. If you need less water, tighten again, let fill and check level.
There are also two old school methods to save water in your toilet. One is to put one or two bricks into your toilet tank. This reduces the amount of water that fills the tank. The second method is if the fill valve has a float ball on a metal rod, you can bend this rod down into the water. This makes the fill valve shut sooner. Don't bend too far or too fast because the chlorine in the water weakens the brass rod that the float ball attaches to.

lets start from simple to harder, first , make sure the water supply valve is turned on, hey I know, but it happens, if you have water at the valve,, turn it off and we will walk through the steps,, where the water supply fill tube attaches to the toilet tank, that will be your fill valve, there are many types and makes of these valves, but they all work pretty much the same, some of the older models have a long arm attached to them that have a ball at the end,, when the water fills the tank, that ball floats up and shuts off the water , which is controlled by the valve in the inlet , depending on what you have in yours,, that valve isn't allowing water into the receiving tank, others have a float that is attached to the fill tube , lemme see if I can locate you some examples Ok heres one that shows both models I described, the older one is in the diagram, and if you scroll down below the flapper , you'll see the newer type,, whatever you have,, can be replaced with the newer version, its much easier and installs quickly , again, with the water off, flush the toilet, hold the handle down until as much water as possible goes out,, with a rag or paper towels, remove whatever water is left , unscrew the water supply tube from the bottom of the tank, there will be a thinner nut that actually holds the valve in place in the tank, remove that also,,and lift out the old unit, slide the new one in,. and secure it doing the opposite of the removal, the new valve will have setting instructions and adjustments .

I have the Kohler toilet with the top actuator, it flushes fine but won't stop running. If I lift the tank top I'm making the toilet flush again. Can this be fixed or do i have to replace the whole system?


(Problem 1) if you can see the water running in the bowl it's a good chance that the flappers warn. you'll have to look at the angle where the light hits the water. The water will be rippling where the top of the water meets the inside of the bowl edge.

1. tank the tank lid off.
2. flush, the rubber thing that comes up and allows the water to go to the bowl is the flapper 3. remove 4. replace that should fix it.

I have a 2yr old Kohler 1.6 oblong toilet. Recently after flushing the water does not shut off. I have to take tank cover off and gently push down on the "guts"


Note: Before doing any major work on your toilet, be sure to turn off the water supply to the toilet...

If your toilet's "guts" have an float ball, try unscrewing the ball a little to lengthen the float (which controls the water shut off)

If that does not work, try putting a little bend in the arm that the float connects to get the ball lower into the tank.

If you are referring to the style float that surrounds the fill tube like a doughnut, most likely you have some sort of build up either on the fill tube the float surrounds, or on the float itself - or both - that is causing friction that not allowing the float to travel (and shut off the water fill into the tank

If you are referring to the flapper at the bottom of the tank that allows water to travel from the tank to the bowl, most likely it is has two "arms" that anchor to the flapper to the fill tube. There may be some buildup on these arms that needs to be removed to allow the flapper to open and close easily.
If the flapper is not closing, you may also have a chain that is binding up when the flush handle is pushed. Clean the chain with some CLR, and/or remove any excess links that are piling up when the flapper is closed.

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.

Tank will not refill after you flush


okay depending on the type of toilet ball **** (i know its a funny word, but it's really what its called.) you have one the most standard type is the long wire with the big ball on the end. you need to adjust this ball **** so it goes lower test it out, flush your toilett and wait till the water drains then when its supposed to come back up push down on the ball **** and youll see the water will start to fill, so then adjust the little screw on the fill valve (the other side of the floater where its attached)

you may need to shut off your water supply and drain your tank depending on how skilled you are,

pretty simple work, if you have questions feel free to ask.
