Try increasing the water pressure but turning up the water that flows into the tank. You can find the knob for that directly behind the toilet.

How do I adjust the flapper on the Fluidmaster 400AK Complete Toilet Tank Repair Kit For 1.6 GPF?


I struggled myself for a while looking at many online videos, replaced the flapper and the toilet still flushed on it's own! I noticed that the flapper chain got often stuck when the flapper lowered down, which caused water still running out and than I came up with my own idea; there is a white plastic fastener inside the water tank for the flush handle outside, that got apparently loose in time and can be even fastened manually, no tool needed! This fixed my problem! I haven't seen this tip anywhere, so I wanted to share it.

Flow of water into american standard toilet tank is very slow and does not fill up to water mark


Adjust the level of the float, water level should be about 1/2" below top of overflow pipe. Slow filling can be due to a build up of calcium in fill vale, a partially blocked water valve, the washer many times gets deteriorated by the chlorine in the water, breaks up and clogs the fill line. Also many manufacturers (fluid-master in particular) place water restrictors inside the bottom of the fill tubes, which cause the water to fill much slower.

How do you adjust the clip so the water level increases?


You don't adjust the clip as it attaches to the pipe to automatic turn off the water at the right level, but your water may be set at to high a level that it overflows into the bowl. When that happens you can do 2 things to correct it: 1 at the wall where the cold water comes out to the toilet you can adjust it to slow the supply of water to a little less. 2. You can adjust the screw inside tank to tighten (turning screw one way) to adjust water level to shut off quicker or adjust tank screw the other way to fell take water up higher. Flush the toilet and observe the power of the flush. Allow the tank to fill until the water shuts off. Repeat the procedure to adjust the float and water level, if desired.

Caroma toilet 12years old, concealed cistern. Water leaking around base when toilet is flushed. water level maintained when not flushing, so the leak must be between the cistern and the bowl. Had a plumber...


Fixing a leaky toilet is actually rather simple, requiring few tools and just a little time and effort. In looking at Caroma toilets on Google, they appear to be just a standard type of unit, and should present few if any problems for yourself or any handyman of modest skill.

If it is leaking around the base of the toilet - where the toilet sits on the floor, the repair item is a simple wax seal. Here is a tutorial to effect this repair: Replace Toilet Wax Ring. The wax ring is very inexpensive, usually $5 to $10 USD.

If the water is leaking from between the tank (cistern) and the toilet bowl, the job is even easier, as it does not require lifting and moving the entire toilet. A good tutorial for that repair is here: How to Replace Tank to Bowl Gasket . The gaskets, new nuts, bolts and rubber seals come in a kit and also cost only $5 to $10 USD.

I am sorry to hear your Plumber insisted you buy an entire new toilet, but do remember he is in the business of making money!

New fill valve streams water out the top nozzle


Hello llettieri,

You did NOT include ANY NOMENCLATURE...
(make, model)

of or relating to your new or old valves...
So all you are going to get is YES...

GENERICALLY... there are SMALL tube
configurations where there is a controlled water
port that is open toward the BACK of the tank...
(other than the main supply)

No... NOT DEFECTIVE.

In every CASE where I have seen them...
The NEW VALVE INCLUDED a hose & clip
to shoot that water down the tank overflow.

Since the toilet is essentially UNUSABLE with that port open...
SCAMPERING back down to the PLUMBER'S SUPPLY
and your receipt seems to be your only OPTION.

If possible... I would recommend the UPGRADE
as... (in my opinion) it makes for a cleaner & fresher
TOILET BOWL.. (it does cost a wee bit more water).

or ALTERNATIVELY explain why you prefer to
scrub more often... and go for the EXACT VALVE
you previously "enjoyed".

Hope this helped

The arm to the float broke off,so I purchased a float valve repair kit ("Fits" Eljer Toilet Part - Float Valve Repair Kit - #495-0189-00 ). However, I cannot for the ife of me figure out how...


Look under the stool for the water valve coming out of the wall and turn it clockwise till it stops turning. This will turn the water off. Flush the stool and get all the water out of the tank as possible.
Look where the water hose goes to the bottom of the stool tank. You will have to take the hose loose with a pair off big water pump pliers or crescent wrench.
After taking the hose loose from the stool, there will be a big nut just above where you took the hose off the tank. You will have to look under the tank to see this nut. Use the same wrench to take this nut loose. You may have to hold on to the old valve.
Once you get this nut off, the valve will be loose from the tank, and you will have a little water leak out of the tank which you can catch with a big towel.
You should be home free from here. Put the new one back in reverse order.

Toilet tank looses water over time


As long as there is no water leaking from the tank to bowl connection, you are OK. You would know if it was leaking here, because you would have water dripping out onto the floor.

Verify that the water level in your tank is below the top of your new flush valve's overflow tube. If the water level comes to the top, it will overflow into the toilet bowl. This can be easily fixed with an adjustment to the fill valve.

If the water is not overflowing into this tube, then the only way you can lose water is through the flapper. You said you changed the flush valve, which would have come with a new flapper attached to it, but maybe buy a new flapper and see what happens???

Old crane toilet, leak between tank and toilet, need new gasket.


You might try looking in an hardware store, or a plumbing shop that has been in business for a long time. Sometimes they have parts that can't be found elsewhere. I would take the old seal with you, if you still have it.
