This is a Cadet model which, for those not familiar, will empty the bowl of
something like 26 golf balls. It has been in use for two years and
yesterday the tank fill valve stopped allowing any water into the tank so I
replaced it with a generic model from Blue Box. Now the toilet flushes just
fine but there is only enough water allowed back into the bowl to cover the
area immediately around the siphon hole. I tried different settings on the
valve but at the highest setting it is still shy of filling the tanik by
1/2", I don't know if that 1/2" is even relevant to the bowl level. Any
ideas on the problem and the correction would be appreciated.
If it's a Fluidmaster read the installation instructions. There is an
adjustment for the height of the Fluidmaster for shorter tanks and longer
tanks. Yours might be set on the shorter tank therefore not allowing the
tank to fill more. Look towards the bottom. There's a collar that you loosen
and then twist the base while holding the top.
