Question about American Standard Home
Hey, One thing is that maybe there might be some loose plastic shavings in the fill line. From the Factory? or maybe was inside the water line going to the toilet when you connected the line to toilet. Shut off the water and get some towels and something to catch the water and disconnect it from the toilet and use bowl or what ever to catch the water and slowly turn it on and see if anything comes out. Maybe if it is in the line inside the toilet it might fall out by lightly tapping on the fill line inside the toilet to help it fall out. Just a thought when you said it "Sings" that sounds like trash inside the line going to the filler tube and bowl, hey try it who knows it might work. Okay

Okay Howard. It seems that the fill or float valve inside the toilet tank needs to be replaced. If you have a pair of channel locks / large pliers and some patience, you can do this yourself and save $ on a service call. This Solution is providing that you have good water pressure everywhere else in the house. First turn off the water on the supply line going to the tank. Flush the toilet (with the water off) to empty the tank. Take a towel / sponge / or wet vac to remove any remaining water. Remove the nut on the underside of the tank that holds the float / water supply to the tank. Now that you have the water float removed you can go to your local hardware store / Home Depot / or Plumbing Supplies Store and get a new fill valve. There are different kinds but they all do the same thing, fill your tank. I use a Fluid Master, But you may have to use one like you have. The Store will assist you. They are only about $10 - $15 Bucks or so.......Install the new float according to directions.....It is pretty simple. Insert your new float stem into the hole with the proper rubber washers and tighten carefully for a good seal. Insert the new black hose into the overflow tube and you are in business. You will have to adjust the water level to about a 1/4 Inch below the overflow tube for a good flush!!! I hope this helps you with the slow tank fill.............Joe

Readjust the float. the longer it is the more leverage the fill water will have on it. good luck. The fill valve does come apart and cleaned if there is debri in it. Turn the water off first:)

Replace the fill valve. You can pick one up[ at Home dep or Lowes for about 20 buks. Close your angle stop at wall behind toilet. Drain all water from tank then remove supply loine from under tank. Then unscrew fill valve and remove gasket and all. Remember to put gasket in new one. :)

in the tank check that the small white hose is not kinked or has fallen away from the center tube where the flush flapper is located the white hose goes into the center and fills the bowl

Replace the flappers, and clean around the flapper seat.
Make sure the water level is 1/2 " below the large vertical tube by either bending the float rod down or adjust the skinny silver rod on a Fluidmaster unit.
