Check the chain the goes between the handle and the flapper.
It should not be taught. If it is it will not permit the flapper to seat
properly and water will leak out. Adjust the chain length so the flapper is seated and there is just a little slack in the chain.

SOURCE: american standard toilet

I have the American Standard Champion 4 toilet. Water is leaking from the tank to the bowl causing the toilet to refill. I've replaced the flapper and cleaned the surface the flapper contact. Nothing seems to work.

SOURCE: have to flush 2 or 3 times to empty toilet bowl

hello, this is a standard toilet you will need to inspect the flapper that is the rubber flap that holds the water up in the tank it works when you pull the lever it pulls the chain upward and lets the water flow if this flapper is old it may not stay up long enough for the water to flow. open the tank top and flush the toilet see if this flapper is staying up long enough and giving the tank enough time to empty if not change this rubber flapper its inexpensive part.
if this is not the reason then you need to adjust your water filler valve there should be a small screw on top of the pivoting float arm
if you have to adjust it for the water limit line inside the tank this will be the proper amount of water needed to flush once completely

also check that the chain lenth on the pull lever is not pulling the flapper down quicker than its supposed to,

try this let me know your results
hope it helps

SOURCE: hole in back of toilet (stool) leaks water.

The hole your refering to is common in the manufacturing of toilets and is generally filled before it leaves the manufacturing. I have repaired several toilets, new toilets, all American Standard, using a good grade of epoxy - not silicone. I used West System epoxy as this is made for marine projects and surprisingly states "toilet repair" as one of the uses of their product. I'd suggest carefully chipping the smooth porcelan around the hole to give the epoxy something to grip. Use a knife or screwdriver to gently chip the edges and make sure the area is dry. Press the epoxy into the hole and give it enough time to cure before putting it back in service. Of course, if the toilet is less than a month old I suggest returning it and getting a new toilet.

Mine don't leak but the toilet suffered from the lazy flush until I found the hole and covered it with masking tape.

Hi Fixya Team, I have a loose toilet seat and it is difficult to tighten as there is no underside. The toilet seat and cover fall out from the hinges. Please may someone help me. Thank you.

If the bolts spin and don't tighten, you'll need to use pliers to grip the nut on theunderside of the toilet while turning the top of the bolt with a screwdriver. Tightenuntil the seat stops wiggling. Fortunately, there's something you can do to keep thetoilet seat from coming loose so often
Loosen the screws with a screwdriver just enough so you can adjust the hinges to reposition the seat. Temporarily reinstall the seat and lid by pressing them back down onto the hinge pins. Close the seat and lid, and align them with the front and sides of the bowl.

How to tighten an american standard toilet seat

They all work pretty much the same. Feel around the top rim of the bowl near where the tank meets the bowl you should find one bolt underneath on either side of the toilet seat. Tighten the nut under there to tighten the seat.

Slow closing toilet seat not working

It needs a new air shock on it. You might be able to take the old one apart and fix it but replacement would be best.
