1-Test the Flapper
Push down on the flapper with a stick when you hear the water running and listen for it to stop. If it stops, you know the flapper isn’t sealing properly. Replace it. Check the fill tube length and cut it back so it’s at least 1/2-in. above the water line.


2-Check the Fill Valve for a Leak
Flush the toilet and look for a fill valve leak. Lift up on the toilet float arm when the tank is filling to see if the water stops. Bend or adjust the toilet float arm so the tank stops filling when the water level is 1/2- to 1-in. below the top of the overflow pipe. If the fill valve still leaks, replace it as shown in the next photo.

3-Remove the and Replace Old Toilet Fill Valve
Turn off the water supply, flush the toilet, and sponge the remaining water from the tank. Disconnect the water supply line, unscrew the fill valve locknut and lift out the old fill valve.

4-Install the New Fill Valve
Insert the new fill valve into the tank according to the instruction sheet and tighten the locknut a half turn past hand tight. If the fill valve is at its maximum height, but the overflow pipe is still higher than the critical level mark, shorten the overflow pipe with a hacksaw so it’s 1 in. lower than the critical level mark on the fill valve.

5-Connect the Fill Tube
Attach one end of the new fill tube to the fill valve nipple and the other to the enclosed angle adapter (shorten the tube to avoid kinks, if necessary). Clip the angle adapter onto the overflow pipe. Finish the installation by attaching the flapper chain to the flush lever as described above. Turn on the water and test flush the toilet.
