There are only three places tank could leak without running on floor; 1 Flapper valve, even though you push on it, theres a possibility it might not be saeling right especially if it has a rubber ring that slides down over overflow tube. Tjis will sometimes contort the shape of the flapper. If it has such a ring and also has the ears to hook on to the hooks on overflow drain assembly, take the flapper out and cut the ring off . 2 if the overflow tube is not sealed and/or carcked below the water line, it will leak. 3 If the main drain assembly, where it goes through tank, is not sealed, it could possibly be getting past and still not leaking past seal between tank and bowl. Some fill valves will run a couple of seconds intermittantly and have to be adjusted but will not run all the time.

The toto toilet keeps running over the overflow tube in the tank. I cleaned the valve which worked for a while but now is back to running. Should I replace the gravity valve?


If you can lift the float arm and it stops the water flow into the tank then the float arm needs to be adjusted. The proper adjustment will stop the water flow when the level is between 3/4" and 1" from the top of the overflow tube. The newer style valves have an adjustment screw that is easily located and can be adjusted without any dis-assembly.

Toilet keeps running water in back tank keeps running over top of drain hole


You don't have to replace, You just need to adjust the fill valve. If you have the ball **** type just tight the top phillips screw. If you have the newer type, close the water valve under the tank and Push down a plastic ring at the bottom of the filling valve, Push down the top of the valve, lift the plastic ring to it's place and open the water valve.

Increase water in toilet tank-low flush Toto toilet


Yes adjust the float level to raise the amount of water in the tank, If you have a float that is a ball around the tank you will have to turn the water off and remove the hose from the tank and remove the nut then pull the water float device out and you will see a clap on the bottom of the float you will turn the float base so that it gets longer, increase it by two inchess so that you increase water flow. Reinstall into the tank hook it all back up and leave the lid off turn on the water and watch the water level rise be sure the float shuts the water off before it over flows, if it starts to over flow then fush it to bring the water down giving you enought time to shut off the water valve.
There is a problem adding low water systems to older septic systems. The septic pipe settles in the ground over time and may cause a ~~~ in the pipe thus causeing blockage. For future reference you can add a one gallon bottle of water in the tank like a milk jug or a used up bottle of puerified water that you have drank and this will decrease it by one gallon per flush. Hope this helps. If you need more asstance just posttothis reply!

TOTO WASHLET LEAKS!


from where?? If it is leaking on to the floor from the base of the toilet you need a new wax ring installed,,, if the water is comming out from where the tank bolts to the bowl you need to get the proper kit since it;s a toto they are one of a kind and don't have any universal kits that will work, call or e-mail toto tell them you need the tank to bowl kit, might as well tell them to send the flush valve also and just do the whole thing good luck

Toto Toilet - no water flow to refill tank after flush


Remove the tank lid and look at the fill valve. Is it a yellow valve?
This fill valve is common on the Toto Toilets and can easliy plug with debrie.

They can be disassmbled and cleaned. however, I usually just replace the valve with Fluid Master Fill valve.
You will also want to check the water coming into the toilet by turning off the water that supplies the toilet and disconnecting the water supply line. After removing the water supply line turn on the water at the valve to make sure that the water is flowing properly. Check the supply line also to make sure it is not plugged.
Be sure and place a small container to catch the water that will come from the valve. A towell will also help from making too much of a mess.
If the Supply line and the valve are clear the problem is in the fill valve.
The G-Max system denotes the Flushiing system which is a 3" flapper that allows the water from the tank to flow into the bowl quicker.
Good Toilets!
