SOURCE: have to flush 2 or 3 times to empty toilet bowl

hello, this is a standard toilet you will need to inspect the flapper that is the rubber flap that holds the water up in the tank it works when you pull the lever it pulls the chain upward and lets the water flow if this flapper is old it may not stay up long enough for the water to flow. open the tank top and flush the toilet see if this flapper is staying up long enough and giving the tank enough time to empty if not change this rubber flapper its inexpensive part.
if this is not the reason then you need to adjust your water filler valve there should be a small screw on top of the pivoting float arm
if you have to adjust it for the water limit line inside the tank this will be the proper amount of water needed to flush once completely

also check that the chain lenth on the pull lever is not pulling the flapper down quicker than its supposed to,

try this let me know your results
hope it helps

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

SOURCE: American Standard toilet constantly runs

The rubber cork thst lifts when you press the handle is leaking by and causes the water level to drop below shut off level so it trys to maintain the the shut off level every minute or so. Replace the cork with one made with the red rubber. good luck

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:)

SOURCE: Flush valve drops before bowl completes flush

is the flapper weighted? if it is it will cause it to shut prematurely. one thing you can do is increase the water in the tank. you might have to buy a pvc cuppler to put on the over flow to allow it to fill up more. korky makes a nice flapper thats not weighted

Flow of water into american standard toilet tank is very slow and does not fill up to water mark


Adjust the level of the float, water level should be about 1/2" below top of overflow pipe. Slow filling can be due to a build up of calcium in fill vale, a partially blocked water valve, the washer many times gets deteriorated by the chlorine in the water, breaks up and clogs the fill line. Also many manufacturers (fluid-master in particular) place water restrictors inside the bottom of the fill tubes, which cause the water to fill much slower.

How to Clean # 3142 Toilet 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.

Thanks.

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.

My brand new toilet american standard round front model cadet 3 tank not fill water


If you verify that the water supply to the toilet is turned on, push down the float on the flush valve. Water should start flowing. If it doesn't, something (such as debris) may be blocking the valve and preventing filling. The new valve could be defective - permanently closed.

After flushing, water level in bowl fills and then slowly drops.


Check to be sure small tube is flowing inside the ovefow tube. This is the water that flushes the rim holes, and refills the bowl. If you don't have flow clean or replace the float valve.

Fluids splash out when flushed


I went through this and called the help line. If the bowl is almost empty after flushing, it may be the water fill line in the fill tank (reservoir on the back of the toilet). There is a small tube that should go into the overflow tube and it adds water to the bowl after flushing. Mine was not attached to the overflow tube when I took it out of the box and the instructions did not mention to check it (or the troubleshooting guide). A picture is worth a thousand words so look for the small white hose going from the fill valve into the overflow tube:_1365.jpg
