I just bought a toilet and tank from Home Depot (Williamsburg
Collection) and installed it. I noticed that a very fine leak was
flowing into the toilet bowl, emptying the tank in the process.
So I returned the defective tank and got a new one from the store.
However, it still has the exact same problem as the one i returned.
Some other things I have done:
+ Balanced the tank so that it is even keel
+ Applied plumbers grease to the flapper valve
For a brand new tank, this is a lot of problem. Is there anything that
I could do to fix this?
Your advice will be very helpful, thanks in advance.
Thanks for your help....the overflow tube appears to be dry, since the
water level is below the top of the float tube. How should I adjust
the float (which is the little foam piece that floats right above the
flapper valve, right?)
I also called American Standard and they said that perhaps there was a
pinhole leakage in the flush valve, so they are sending me a brand new
valve assembly (with a new float attached to it). Dont know if that
will work, but am keeping fingers crossed.
