SOURCE: Champion4 leaks water through flush valve

You have replaced the flush valve completely? If so and the unit is still leaking, you may have a small crack in the tank or your just not getting the tank to bowl fittings tight enough. Also, they make two different thicknesses in the tank to bowl gasket. Make sure you are using the thicker of the two. You posted this under the American Std. thread, so if this is correct, give them a call. There could be a recall on this particular toilet due to a flaw.

SOURCE: The flush valve does stay open long enough after flushing

Which style of flush valve do you have? If it is the dual-flush option (solids/liquids) I do not know how to adjust those. If you have a traditional style, then the flapper or ball is closing too soon. You need to adjust the guide arm (flush ball) higher or shorten the chain between the flapper and the handle. Adjust this carefully or you will have it fail to seat and the toilet will constantly run.

I hope this helps.

have to know whether you mean water is flowing into the bowl?, or "over-filling" the tank? Could either be a bad flapper(More common), or the "fill-valve" is leaking.

Water leaks from tank to bowl all the time

It is most likely the flush valve gasket. This is the equivalent of a flapper on a normal toilet. You can purchase these seals at 750017 Outlet Valve Seal for M5 Flush Valve

I suppose you're talking about a toilet. One likely issue is the flapper valve ( if this has one). If no flapper then check whatever sealing mechanism is used to prevent water from entering the bowl when idle. Clean the sealing surfaces good. Make certain they are properly aligned.

this is usually caused by slightly higher than normal water pressure in your area or foreign matter lodged in the fill valve body. the quickest/cheapest solution is to flush the toilet and turn down the pressure to the toilet by slowly turning the shut off valve toward the off position till it stops making noise. otherwise you could replace the fill valve w/a "whisper" valve by fluidmaster, from home depot,lowes,etc, which is much less noisy in general but even a whisper will make noise if the water pressure is to high. hope this helps but if you need anything else just ask:)

I have a 1998 Caroma Reflections cistern p/n 6871774. It is making a hissing noise after the tank is refilled, and water streaks down from the supply rim of the bowl. Which part needs to be replaced?

the inlet washer needs to be replaced to stop the overflow, the washers are easy to get and cheap but trying to get the unit open to replace the washer is my big question at the moment
