I replaced an old ball and cock toilet assembly about one year ago with
the newer cylindrical kit. (I believe it is a fluidmaster). Now it seems to
flush about every 8 or 9 hours, and the water level goes down about 1". I
lowered the level of the cylindrical unit, about one inch down, and the water
level is lower, but the toilet still flushes at what seems to be the same
interval. Could someone tell me what is going on and how to fix it?
Take a piece of nylon stocking or something similar,
and gently go around the mating face of the opening the
flapper goes down onto. Usually won't improve things,
but sometimes it does.
While you're replacing the flapper.
Did you perhaps put the little refill tube deep too deep into the overflow
pipe. If the end of it is below the normal high water level it will siphon.
Just be certain it is about at the top of the pipe.
