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. :)

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.

VOCAL FILLING american standard 6 ltr flush --when the last half of the tank is filling ,it becomes quite vocal , like a loud hum ! any ideas ?


What probably is happening is the valve in the fill tube is warped or worn. The easiest fix is to replace the fill valve with a new fluid master. This is where your noise is coming from.

When I flush thenwater fills to the fill line and slowly keeps on dripping over the top of the flush valve tube.


I would ckeck to see where water fill line is inside toilet tank and then adjust flush valve to try to get it to shut off at this point. Not knowing whether your toilet still has original flush valve it is hard to tell you how to fix it. If it has float mounted on rod to flush valve there is usually a set screw on the top of the flush valve in the center. Turn this screw clockwise to make valve shut off sooner. Try to set it so that water shuts off when it is at fill mark. If float is mounted on brass float rod you can support rod closest to flush valve with left hand and carefully bend rod down a little with your right. This will cause flush valve to shut off sooner. If the seat is worn to badly in flush valve you will need to replace it.

Adjust the water setting of the tank to higher level, meaning an additional water will be added to the tank. The purpose of this is to release extra water that will fill the missing water level in the bowl.
