We replaced our 3 toilets with the Fluidmaster 400 and have had problems ever since. All the toilets are running water every 5 to 10 minutes and my water bill has doubled. What can we do?

Hello- If you replaced old ball and rod set with new fluidmasters they will most likely need to be adjusted, not all toilet tanks are of equal height. You will have to adjust water height,meaning you must keep water level below fill tube located in center of the toilet tank. Adjustment is done from bottom of the fluidmaster, they screw in and out to adjust height. You will notice threads along the bottom part of the fluid master, on the inside of the tank,they adjust up & down! Goodluck!

    Not sure that will be a casuse of the water running every 5-10 minutes???? My 5 year old 400 Model just started doing the same thing.

Toilet driping sound at bottom after flushing


Either the flapper is not closing completely or the water level is too high so water runs out the overflow pipe. Level should be set at 1/2" below top of pipe.

My fluidmaster 400 anti siphon for toilet will not stop filling making pump run over and over


Hi turtlerose07...

Sounds like you have one or two problems with the fluidmaster 400.
1...The float is set too high allowing the water to overflow into the overflow pipe and allowing your pump to run too much.
2...Flapper valve inside at the bottom of the tank is not sealing properly, thus allowing water to leak and causing the fluidmaster to keep trying to fill the tank with water and causing the pump to run too much.
Please take time to rate me

When flush my toilet, water keep running until i put my hand inside the middle and pull the float , then stop. toilet make is rapid sl


the ball **** fill valve is a poorly designed valve. replace it with a fluidmaster fill valve and a fluidmaster flapper. flappers do go bad after a year or ten depending on your water quality and choice of flapper but the fluidmaster fill valve will last a long time also. you can also get the water saver fill valve by fluidmaster and there is also a conversion set to change your toilet to a dual flush. all this is at lowes and there is a plumbing pro there to explain further. feel free to give me a positive rating. thanks!

I have fluidmaster in my mancesa toilet. After flushing the toilet tank doesn't refill unless I turn off the water supply and turn it back on. What do I do to fix this problem. Wayne


First thing to do is figure out if the problem is with the fluidmaster or with the shutoff valve. If the water doesn't run at all after flushing, then instead of cycling the shutoff valve, just loosen the nut where the supply tube attaches to the fluidmaster (under the tank). If the problem is in the fluidmaster, it will start to squirt out at you, otherwise it won't. Then you know what to disassemble and attempt to repair, or replace.

I have installed a fluidmaster 400 bottom inlet


I have installed 400A or 400LS valves on systems as low as 30psi, but below that I don't know that it would work very well if you needed it to fill faster.

Keep in mind that your pressure to the toilet will be 1/2psi for every foot above the fill level of the tank, which is reduced by friction loss in the pipe and fittings on the way to the toilet.
