Hi,
To see where the water is going, place some red cake dye in the tank and see where the water turns red....this will show you exactly what is happening and where the water is going...

    You only have a couple of places the water can go. Typically most flapper toilets need a new seat where the flapper fits because the seat is worn. Go to your nearest hardware store and buy the repair kit with the new flapper seat. This simply epoxies to the existing seat and creates a new flat seal surface. the other places are bad float or refill level guage. And of course the first thing is do you have water on the floor.

Relace flush valve seal

The American Standard Cadet 3 flowise one piece toilet uses a flapper valve with a soft nylon washer to seal against the water outlet.
Over time this nylon washer develops 'puckers' causing water to seep between the nylon washer and the seat of the flapper. This seepage causes the water level in the tank to drop to a point where the water inlet valve opens to replace the lost water in the tank.
There are two ways to correct this problem:
1. Replace the soft nylon washer on the flapper, or
2. Replace the entire flapper valve.
Hope this solution helps.

Toilet tank to bowl small leak

You need to replace the tank to bowl nuts, washers, and gaskets as well as the flush valve gasket. One word of caution. When installing the new bolts to hold the tank in, place a rubber gasket under the washer inside the tank, and also one on each bolt under the washer underneath the tank. If you omit the one under the tank you may end up cracking the tank when you tighten it down.

American standard caded 3 leaking water from tank into toilet and occasionally running every 5 minutes. is this a flapper problem (it seems well seated) or could it be leaking elswhere?

It could be a bad seat around the flapper or the flapper itself. Replace flapper with one designed for the Cadet. Check water level and see it doesn't flow above the overflow tube. if it is above the tube lower the float ball by turning the screw at top of ball.

Leaking at base after flushing

I have a new American Standard Cadet 3 that was just installed. After flushing, the water fills into the bowl. However, after several minutes, the water in the bowl slowly drains away and is nearly gone....

Sorry for problem with new toilet.
You say water is leaking out of the bowl?

Toilets have 2 parts:
1) Tank: where water is stored for the flush and is sealed with a flapper.
2) Bowl: where water flushes down.

a) If tank is leaking water, then flapper is suspect. Replace flapper and see if that works.
Lift up flapper and run finger around rim to see if there is a rough spot that would indicate flush valve is defective, and needs replacement.
See typical flush valve

b) If bowl is leaking, that is very unusual and would indicate a crack in the porcelain.

If installer sold you the toilet, it is his responsibility to make good on product.

How much water should be in tank when installing a American Standard toilet-

There is a water line cast on or into the side of the tank. They are generally set from by the type of filler system you install. Thats a different matter.

I love my Cadet toilet. It looks perfect in my bathroom, but the flush isn't as powerful as I thought it would be. Can someone help me?

The flapper is secured with a rubber band. The rubber band must be removed from the flapper for the toilet to function properly. Please check the flush valve prior to installation and if the rubber band is present, simply cut it and remove it.

How much draw down (tightening) do use to attach the water tank to the toilet bowl on a American Standard Flowise Cadet 3 toilet? Does the tank need to meet the bowl?

Seat the tank well on a new wax ring and then tightnen the two bolts on the sides evenly there is a small amount of pressure but thats it. To much and you'll snap the side of the bowl. You can caulk around the edge if you want more security,less movement.

The tension on the nuts is very tricky just a feel kinda thing.

Be carefull not to over do it.
