Not on the float, but on the fill tube cap,, its a small screw that you can adjust the arm drop with the float on the end of it, If its adjusted all the way and is still filling to much,, just bend the bar holding the float down

Adjust the water level in the bowl of a duravit toilet


You can't. Water level is set by the design of the trap built into the ceramic base. Can only adjust height of water in the tank.

How to adjust a toilet


  • Your toilet tank may simply need a good "tune-up." Here are some adjustments you can make.

  • Refill valve. If your tank has a conventional ballcock refill valve, the water level is adjusted by bending the float arm. The level should be high enough for complete flushes, but the water should not be to the top of the overflow pipe. Your tank should have a colored or molded water level mark. It should never be set so low that the bowl does not refill with trap sealing water. The rule of thumb is to set the water level about 3/4" below the top of the overflow pipe.

  • If the float rubs on other parts, simply adjust the float arm sideways. If the float lacks buoyancy, unscrew then shake it to determine if it is waterlogged. A waterlogged float should be replaced. The float arm can also be replaced, if needed.

  • In tanks using modern plastic refill valves, the tank water level is adjusted in other ways. If your tank uses a hand nut, turn the nut clockwise to raise, or counterclockwise to lower, the water level. Or, your tank may have a sliding pinch clamp on an adjustment rod.

  • Flush valve. Replacements for a flush ball and its actuating mechanism are available, but it may be possible to stop a leak with minor adjustments. Check the following mechanisms before purchasing replacements.

  • See that the guide arm is centered directly over the seat. The guide arm should drop the flush ball directly into its seat. If the flush ball is not seating properly, make the adjustment shown.

  • The guide arm should allow the flush ball to rise enough for a complete flush. If not, raise the arm. Be careful that it isn't too high–then it will prevent the ball from closing completely.

  • Check that the upper lift wire pulls the flush ball high enough. To adjust it, simply bend the wire for a higher or lower lift.

  • The lifting hardware on a flapper-type flush valve should raise the rubber flapper to start a flush, but should not hold the flapper up off its seat. If this is occurring, the hardware is adjusted too short. Some types allow you to slide the flapper itself up or down on the refill tube to ensure that the flapper meets the valve seat squarely. The lifting hardware and flapper height adjustments are the first things to check when flapper problems arise.

  • Refill tube. If the bowl-refill tube is out of place, water is routed directly into the tank, rather than replenishing water in the bowl. When this is the case, you will likely hear splashing sounds during tank refill. The refill tube should aim directly into the overflow pipe but should not reach below water level. If the tube extends too low, it will siphon tank water silently away. Fix it by repositioning as shown.

  • Defective refill tubes on some valves can be replaced with new plastic ones. Simply place one end of the plastic tube over the serrated plastic lug on the body of the valve, and place the plastic holder in the top of the overflow pipe.

    How do I adjust FLOAT VALVE in a Kohler San Martine toilet tank ?


    On the fill valve float there will be either a plastic screw or a metal bar with a metal slide clip on it. If its a screw, use a screwdriver to turn it cw or ccw to adjust water level. If its a clip, compress the clip between your thumb and forefinger and slide it up or down along the bar to set the float level. You need to test it after adjusting. Level should be 1/2" below top of overflow tube.

    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.

    Water level is set too high and runs over the overflow. how can i adjust the water level in the tank?


    Inside the tank, on a lever arm there should be a cylindrical float that rises and lowers with the water level. Attached to the float is a float rod with a clip that can slide up and down the rod. You can adjust the water level by sliding the clip down to reduce the amount of water entering the tank. As the water fills the tank, the float rises, pushing up the float rod, which in turn pushes up the level that controls the valve allowing water to enter the toilet.

    I have a Kohler elongated toilet and tank. The toilet does not fill up all the way. What should I do.


    Hi chanryan...
    You need to adjust your float level in the tank.
    Look on the arm of the float ball and there should be a screw that you can adjust the level of the tank water.
    Turn the screw to raise the level of the water in the tank, to just about a 1/2 inch of the overflow pipe
    If it will not adjust then you will have to replace the float valve (ballcock...is what it is called)

    How to adjust water level in tank---Kohler Wellworth toilet


    please make sure the water is off!
    the fluid master has a slip ring at the bottom of the float base it pulls up then you can adjust the float up or, down and, snap it back down.
    at the top of the float you will see a cross-headed plastic bolt; this is adjusted for fine level control using a large conventional philips screwdriver.

    The water level in tank is low. How do you adjust?


    There's no certain way for me to know which fill valve you have in there, but locate the float. This floats on the water level and turns off the water when the tank is full. There's probably a screw on the float arm that lets you adjust the float up and down, adjusting the full water level. You may be able to loosen a collar on the bottom of the fill assembly and slide the whole thing up and down (make sure you turn off the water valve when you do this because the whole thing can pull apart), or you may be able to simply turn the entire fill assembly which will raise and lower it if it's built that way. Make sure the new water level doesn't go above the level of the refill tube or the water will go down the tube and the valve will never turn off.

    How do I adjust tank fill valve to increase water level in toilet?


    There are many different fill valves out there so it would be a little hard to tell you how to adjust your particular one without knowing the brand and type of the fill valve.
    So I will give you a generic adjustment.
    Look for someway/something to adjust your float in the toilet tank.
    There should be a screw, moveable metal, something that will adjust your float.
    Once you locate the adjustment, you can then adjust your water level in the toilet tank.
    Adjust the water level in the toilet tank to be about a 1/4-1/2 inch before it flows out of the overflow tube when the water shuts off.
    Good Luck, I hope this helped.
    Please rate me, Thanks

    Water level in bowl too low


    Hello, W/D, toilet expert, here.
    The tank has a water level line cast into the inside back of the tank. That's where your water level should ideally be. Now, there are a variety of water level controllers, so we'll hit on the major ones. But first, a little nomenclature, so you'll know what it isn't. If you remove the tank lid, you'll notice a tube in the middle that's open, and usually has a smaller tube inserted or attached to it. This is the overflow tube, and feeds water to the rim of the bowl. At the base of the overflow tube is the flapper, and it controls the majority of the flushing power. The flapper is operated by a chain connected to the flush lever. When the flapper is raised (flushed), the water level drops. On the left side of the tank is the water fill valve, The water coming from the house via the tubing under the tank goes into this valve assembly. Part of this assembly is the all important float.
    Older ones have the float at the end of an arm, As the water level falls, the float falls and operates the water inlet valve at the other end of the float, on the water fill valve. As the level rises in the tank, the float rises with the level and shuts off the water when it gets to it's pre-set level. This type is adjusted by positioning the float either by the screw adjustments on each end of the float arm, or sometimes by bending the float arm.
    The newer types have the float either built in, or the float surrounds the fill valve. The one that surrounds the fill valve looks like a very fat donut and is very similar to the older float arm type, just more compact. The water level is set by adjusting the linkage between the float and the water valve at the top of the water control valve.
    The newer newer type has all of the floating mechanism built in. But cleverly, there is an external adjustment for raising and lowering the water level. On the side of the tube, there are slots and raised dots on the lower tube. The upper tube has slots on the inside of it. There is a white locking tab between the two tubes. Here's how this one works: (Turn your water off first for adjusting this type). The tube is in two parts, an upper and lower tube. They are held in place by the locking tab, and by the slots cast into the two tubes (they intermesh) To adjust this type, you have to raise the lower portion of the locking tab to raise it off of the locking dots, and than revove it. Then, you push down slightly and twist the upper section to unlock it. Set the level higher or lower, twist the two parts back together, and reinsert the locking tab. The aim is to set the water level at the level mark on the tank. This type can be tricky; you'd do best to turn the water off to adjust this type, and turn it back on once you have locked it back in place.
    Best regards, W/D
