The older styles have a screw at the end of the shaft where the fill valve is, turn the screw in and out to adjust float arm level. Newer ones have a plastic nut and bolt about midway along the shaft. Turn the nut to loosen slightly, push the float up or down and tighten the nut. Caution: The plastic bolt breaks easily so don't tighten the nut too much.

Depends on type. Rubber ones usually are suspended from the seat by an arm on either side, you pull it off the arms and replace the same way. Older ones slide down over the overflow tube.

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.

Make sure the water valve to the toilet is actually letting water into the fill valve. Turn off valve, remove from fill valve, run water into a pan to see pressure and confirm water flow. If water flow and pressure good, replace the fill valve.

Try using one of these A product called Kaboom Bowel Blaster and let it sit in the bowl for a while, then brush clean. This worked for me when others failed. You can try muriatic acid as a toilet bowl cleaner.Again let it sit for a while then brush and flush available from places like Home depot.Sometimes the toilets are not glazed as well as they should be you might call it a defect I call it poor quality control.

Probably a mineral buildup. Pour a bucket of water into the bowl so that the bowl flushes but does not refill with water. In other words you want as little water in the bowl as possible so it wont dilute the cleaner. Use an acid cleaner like lime away in the bowl. Let it set for several hours or over night,. then scrub with toilet brush. Lime away is fairly safe but try not to splash it on your clothes or yourself. Wash it away if you do.
You may have to repeat to finish the job.

Your theory may be correct. I have found that replacement flappers vary widely in quality and lifespan.

Air Switch Repair
It sounds like you have a bad air switch located in your motor.
The air switch is what the air hose connects to on the back of the motor or on the box on top of the motor. The other end of the air hose is connected to the air button on the lip of the tub.
This is a latching air switch and when you push the air button it latches to send power to the motor. When the air button is pushed again it opens the latch in the air switch and stops power going to the motor shutting it off.

Hi Joey, The problem is likely that the switch is installed incorrectly. I'm sorry I don't recommend or advise any repair of a appliance that is water/electrical by anyone other than an authorized repair person. Furthermore, I would not use the appliance again until you have have professional repairs done.

If your pump will not shut off when you push the button on the tub then you have a bad air switch in the motor.

Not normal for that to happen but the jet faces on the two back jets may be turned off or down.
Try turning the face of the jet clockwise and see if you get more water flow out of each jet.
