Go to an ace hardware or walmart and buy a replacement kit for the inside of the toilet. They do not cost that much and should be able to solve your problem just follow the diagram to install, it is fairly simple. Parts wear out and this will save you a lot of money from getting a plumber

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.

Toilet Flushing


Is your supply valve on below the toilet? Maybe the float inside the tank is stuck in the up position? Or else the float valve is stuck. Shut off the supply valve below the toilet tank. Take off the line going to the tank. Slowly open up the valve a little does water come out? If it does, I would replace the float assembly with a new one. If there is no water, then the problem is in the plumbing going to the supply valve in your house. Good luck and please rate my answer so I get points

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.

My mansfield toilet 160 has a weak flushing problem


My toilet had same problem:
I thought it was a clog in the drain pipe.
But the problem was clogged holes where water flushes into toilet bowl.

Here's how I fixed problem.
Purchase:
Gallon of CLR calcium-lime-rust remover from Home depot.
Pumice stone from hardware store.

Home supplies:
Cut off bottom of empty clorox bottle to make container for CLR
Old 3" paint brush you don't use for anything else to apply CLR
Small cup to pour CLR into toilet flapper opening

Steps:
Look inside toilet bowl under rim and see holes where water comes out
Use brush and apply CLR to holes where water comes out.
Use pumice stone to scrape ... pumice stone will not hurt toilet surface.
Flush toilet to clear holes so far.
Turn off water to toilet.
Open flapper to drain tank.
Keep flapper open.
Use cup and pour dose of CLR directly into flapper opening.
(You can also pour CLR down overflow tube... but flapper opening puts whole dose directly onto problem)
Pour another cup of CLR into opening.
Notice how CLR starts coming out the holes into bowl.
Pour CLR down flapper hole until it runs easy and fast out of holes.
Close flapper, turn on water, toilet fixed.

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...


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.

I've just fitted a Nabis breeze and am having flushing problems.


Well many toilets flush very high before flushing, they appear to almost overflow, but if that doesn't seem like your problem, I would recommend adjusting the float on the Fluid-master fill valve so that there is less water in the tank when it flushes.

I have an American Stadard Toilet that is only 2 years old. The toilet will not stop running. Could you give me some trouble shooting ideas?


There's a lot of variety in the works in the toilet tank. Assuming this is not a pressure-assisted toilet-----First understand the three valves are: 1. The shutoff valve - on the supply line coming into the toilet tank. 2. The fill valve - inside the tank, opens with the float descends, closes when the tank fills up. 3. The flush valve - inside the tank on the bottom. Common old style is a flapper on a pivot. Yours may operate straight up and down rather than on a pivot.
Three very common problems are---- 1. The chain that connects the handle to lift the flush valve is getting caught, not allowing the flush valve to close. 2. There is problem with the flush valve being able to get a good seal when it closes - could be debris or misalignment. 3. The fill valve is not closing when the tank is full, could need adjustment or there is debris preventing the valve to seat. . Here's are some steps to diagnose---- close the shutoff valve. Wait a few minutes as you watch the level in the tank. If the water level decreases, you have problem with the flush valve. To confirm the fill valve as the problem, turn the shutoff valve back on. Lift up on the float that is supposed to turn off the fill valve. If it shuts off, you should be able to adjust it - most have a +/- plastic adjustment screw. But if raising the float by hand only slows it down, you have problem with the seating of the fill valve - which can sometimes be cleaned, but more often would need to be replaced.
I hope this is helpful. Thanks for using FixYa.

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.

Delay on tank fill after flush. Toto Drake bowl ada elongatred


I am not a plumber but stumbled across the solution on my own. While watching the float during the flush cycle, it was obvious that it was very slow in moving downward along with the water level in the tank. The problem was that the small opening in the float chamber was partially clogged. Using just my fingers, I reached under the float chamber and cleaned off any debris that was blocking the opening underneath the float chamber. Put the float back on, and instantly the problem was solved. The tank fill started immediately after I flushed.
