American Standard 2004.014 - Champion Elongated One-Piece Toilet - Answered Questions & Fixed issues

Start with the flapper. They tend to dry up especially with water that contains chlorine. Purchase the American Standard flapper if available for that toilet. Works better than generics.

probably the flapper valve is not seating correctly over the outlet. you can fix it by reaching in and twisting the valve one way or the other till it seats properly and the leak will stop.

The problem is yout toilet flapper. It will look something like this.


You can find a new one at most hardware stores or at a stoe similar to a Lowe's or Home Depot. Changing them is very easy, usually they are held by two ears on either side of the standpipe. Just remove the old one, hook on the new one and adjust the chain to the lever so that it flushes properly.
These are made of soft plastic or rubber and are affected by stuff in the water. Chlorine especially is hard on them and makes them hard and brittle, causing them not to seal right.
Sometimes dirt will accumulate on the bottom and wiping the bottom off will fix the problem, but it is usually a temporary fix.

The foam block does a few things: It helps with noise level, helps prevent condensation and also takes up space in the tank to lessen water usage with each flush.
Keep an eye on the outside of the tank and if you don't ever notice any moisture on the outside of the tank then I wouldn't worry about it all!!

Depends how old your toilet is, it may be a calcium build up problem on your little inlet pipe inside your tank, but first check your water shut off valve on left side of your toilet near the wall....It may not be open all the way OR the valve has an issue...

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

First, carefully remove your tank lid, and place it where it won't break or fall. Look for a four-digit number located on the back of the tank, near the water level mark. This is your tank model number. If the number starts with a two, it is a one-piece toilet.

  • Flapper at bottom not sealing correctly
  • Defective fill valve

I think it's not a wise decision to clean a toilet fill valve, rather than buy a new toilet fill valve and replace with the old one.
