Probably not. your valve is corroded or stopped up. It pretty easy to change and you can buy one at most hardware stores.
(1) turn the water off to the stool
(2) unscrew the inlet hose coming from the wall to the stool valve (under the tank usually on the left)
(3) unscrew the big plastic nut holding the valve to the tank (the nut is under the tank) ( be sure to flush the stool and get as much water out of the tank before unscrewing the nut. Get a large towel or bowl as you will have some water leak from the tank when you pull the valve out.
(4) disconnect the overflow line coming from the valve to the center line in the tank. (this is just usually a little rubber hose about 1/4" around. You are ready to go get another valve. You might take the old one with you.

Why does the water valves continually pulse?


It's hard to answer such a general question. I will assume your reference refers to a toilet, and that 'pulse' is regards a recurrent slight refill action of the tank fill valve. If this is the case the cause is probably a slowly leaking flush valve. When the tank water level drops enough to activate the fill valve, there will be a slight refill action (pulse) to top up the tank water level. It will repeat until the leaking flush valve is fixed.

Water in tank continuously slowly flows out. No flapper but a central tower.


What ever functions as a flapper is defective and needs to be replaced.

After flush tank refills very slowly


Make sure that any valves that you shut to install the fill valve are fully open after the installation.

If that doesn't work, the following is from another fix your stuff site:
Shut off water supply. Lift the rod arm and remove top cap assembly by turning 1/8 turn counterclockwise. Using a straightened coat hanger, carefully clean out the inlet passage of the Valve.

If these don't help, check the model number of your Fluidmaster and include that the next time you write.

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 tank is refilling slowly.


Hi AaronYC,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumbe.

Your problem is: Installed a new American Standard Cadet 3 toilet bowl and tank at home. When you turn the water supply on, the tank refills normally and stops normally. After you flush, the refill is very slow. When it refills normally the water comes out from the bottom of the pipe (i.e. the pipe that houses the float cup) and when it is refilling slowly, it comes from the top of the pipe. Sometimes (but not always), you can shut the water supply off and when you turn it back on, the flow of water goes from slow to fast instantly - but you haven't been able to recreate this consistently.

These are the facts. American Standard has been keeping costs down by out sourceing. Their toilets are now built in third world countries and parts are made cheap. They're all doing it. Quality control is pretty good but your toilet came with a bad "ballcock". That's the refill part on the left. Because it's new, if you take the ball **** back to place of purchase they should give you new. If not, they cost less than $ 10.00 and easy to replace.

Feel free contact me again!
