SOURCE: Slow water leak past flapper seal.

Replace flapper, it is worn out.Turn off water valve. Flush toilet, remove flapper. Then replace flapper, adjust chain to same size as old one, then turn water back on.

SOURCE: Toto flapper seems ok but toilet keeps slow trickle into the bowl

The water inlet valve should close completely and stop water from coming into the tank before the water level reaches the "small tube." (This is the overflow tube.)

There may be an o-ring or rubber gasket inside the valve that can be replaced. If not, you would have to replace the water inlet valve.

SOURCE: My Toto (Drake model) toilet tank is leaking.

It is most likely that it could still be your flapper. Toto has its own brand of parts made specifically for each of their models of toilets.

I bought 2 toto toilets about 7 years ago. One toilet has started to experience about a 2 to 3 second delay from the toilet discharge to the refill. I replaced the flapper ball but no change in the flush....


jasether-

The fill valve is most likely corroded with mineral deposits. You can either try to clean it or replace it (these cost just a few dollars). Remove the old one and take it to a plumbing supply or hardware store to properly match the replacement.

Hope this helps.

Eljer 0220 toilet leaks from tank to bowl, then fill valve spurts out water from top and around the edges, and also through the tube that goes to the overflow. Replaced the flapper, but still leaks. Also...


When the tank is full and leaking into the bowl reach in and put slight pressure on the flapper and if the leak stops then you may have the wrong flapper or the flapper is not installed properly. If that is not the case then make sure the flush valve seat is not cracked or that the surface is not warped.

Replace flapper valve in ultramax


Your Toto has the "G-Max" flush valve system. The Korky/Lavelle folks have a carded replacement flapper #2021BP for it. It is red in color and the only generic flapper that will work on your toilet. While it may look the same, do not confuse it with the blue flapper #2022BP. Known as the PowerMax flapper, the blue color is to distinguish between the two and the flappers are totally toilet specific. Let your fingers do the walking and locate a hardware store near you that carries the Korky/Lavelle brand or it can be ordered online from several places using the part number for your search word.
If the fill valve ever stops filling correctly, the Lavelle "Quiet Fill", #528BP, is what Toto uses in most of their toilets.

Toilet fills up and water keeps on running (toto 6.0 lpt)


If any toilet runs (continues to fill) when it is not being used, there are basically 3 reasons. the most obvious is that water is leaking out all over the floor so the fill valve thinks the tank has not reached its volume of water. Next, the rubber device that keeps the water in the tank when not being used (most commonly called a flapper) has warped from time or chemicals in the water (NOTE:chlorine eats rubber for breakfast daily), and and allows water to seep past it, which lowers the water level and triggers the fill valve to come back on to top things off.
The third reason is because there is particulat in the fill valve or mineral buildup and internally it doesnt always properly seal so it can run intermittently or all the time.
All the parts on the TOTO ultramax are warranteed for 5 years so keep that in mind if it applies.
Remove the tank lid when you hear the fill vave working and look at the water level. If the water level is below the top of the white plastic tube that the flapper is connected to (often called the overflow tube), then you have a bad flapper. If the water level is going over the top of the tube then you have a defective fill valve.
Out of warranty fill valves can easily be replaced with a Lavelle "Quiet fill" available at most hardware or plumbing stores or online.
This valve is what Toto uses in most of their toilets and it is only the removeable cap that is different (subliminal advertising maybe)

I cannots top leaking. The toilet is full with water but from time to time it opens the walve to get more water in.


When a fill valve opens up from time to time to let more water in it is because the rubber flapper is not sealing properly and is allowing water to slowly seep out.
Toto Caryles have a 5 year parts warranty so keep this in mind if ti applies. If replacing the flapper doesn't solve the seepage problem then the flush valve (the white assembly the flapper connects to) may have to be replaced.
Be sure to install the new flapper at the exact chain length as the one you removed.

My Eljer toilet does not always flush completely. It is approximately 20 years old. I don't believe that it is a venting problem. I have dismounted, inspected and remounted the toilet and found nothing...


Not being a plumber by trade I don't want to bad mouth what your plumber had to say but there may be other things to consider.
If the toilet does not flush directly into the main drain there is the possibilty that the coupling between the main drain and the toilet drain is under-sized which could cause reduced water flow and your toilet not flushing completely.

Toto GMax Flushing System drips


What you are experiencing is a flapper valve problem. Since I don't know what model you have I will give you a link to the generic GMax unit. Here is the parts breakdown for a GMax

Toto GMax

I would suspect you need part #7 on this diagram a flapper valve. Take the old one with you since different colors ones are used on different models. You should go to the Toto site to locate a dealer first. You can find their site here:
