We had a problem with phantom flushing. Call Kholer. They will send redesigned battery holder and top of flush unit for free. Seems to have fixed the issue.

SOURCE: Master bath toilet replaced with a Cimmeron class

Kohler is correct. The most likely cause of this problem is an obstruction in the common vent stack that both toilets share. When you flush the old toilet it need more air to flush and will get it from the easiest source (your new water saver toilet). First adjust the float level in the old toilet so it won't use as much water or just stick a brick in the tank to take up space.Second, run a snake down the vent stack from the roof to check for obstructions. Birds will sometimes nest in there.

This type of flush system can be re presurised quickly by holding down the flush handle for about good 2 minutes, then release , wait for the tank to be refilled with water.
Now you can flush away your inner rotting mess down tube good-by...

Don't flush more water! Trash the toilet and replace it with a toilet that uses less water and flushes efficiently; practically every manufacturer makes a dual flush or eco model. Spend your money on a good toilet rather than paying for and wasting water every day.

SOURCE: The toilet is only 2 months' old. The water keeps

Remove the top of the water tank.
check to be sure that the flush cover (about in the center of the tank) can close all the way. It seats into a 2 inch hole - and must seat all the way around. If it fails to seat, then the fill valve (on the left side of the tank) will continously let water into the tank.

As a starter experiment, you may try just turning whe water off at the wall shut off. Then inspect the tank to confirm that it is losing water.
If confirmed, then the above solution is correct.
If it is not losing water, then the fill valve is faulty and will need to be replaced (it is allowing water to over flow into the "OverFlow" tube.....

I recommend that you keep the water turned off at the wall until the toilet is needed - and the problem is repaired.

Kohler toliets can be a pain to repair. I have found with them that the only thing to do with them is go to a plumbing company, take the model number with you and replace all in the inner parts to it. You will replace the fill valve and flush valve. After I do this on Kohler I don't have anymore problems with them. It should work for you, just make sure they are Kohler parts. Good Luck

I have a 6 month old Kohler toilet that has a very loose flush mechanism handle- how do I tighten it?


Toilet flush levers are always adjustable. For the most part, there are two types of chains that attach to the lever. Ball chain or linked chain. Either way, you'll see that there is a rod behind the toilet handle lever. That rod has many holes. Re attach the chain to the proper hole on the rod that makes the chain taut and not loose. Hope this helps!

We replaced the toilet kit about 6 months ago and now the toilet runs even when the bowl is filled? What can we do to fix it.


There is either a screw on the top of the fluidmaster, or the float can be screwed out further. If it has a screw on top of the fluidmaster, screw it in to make the valve shut off earlier. Keep adjusting and flushing until it shuts off before it overflows. Hope this helps...

My toilet runs constantly


How old is the toilet? Might have lime buildup in the housing that's keeping the float from raising completely. The whole assembly is relatively inexpensive at Wal-Mart, and very easy to change. It would probably be less hassle than trying to fix the old one. I found that out after wasting a lot of time trying to mix my old one. :-)
