Hi, this is Nicholas Iarocci, The Home Source guy, president and owner of Source Development, Inc., a residential and commercial construction company in Garnerville, New York and this is how to restore the water level in a toilet. So you may have had to replace the overflow, you may have had to replace the flush valve but essentially you want to line up the accurate level in the tank so that you are getting an accurate amount of metered water that the top tank was designed to have with the bottom of the bowl. People think the more water the better, actually it is a cycle that the toilet runs through so you want to have the right amount of water that it was designed for. This particular Kohler model has a screw adjustment to it so on our particular model the overflow indicates the water line but on certain toilets he water line is marked on the tank itself. So depending on the application, you may have one or two different sorts of adjustments. Sometimes in the old tanks you actually use to bend the float wand so that you know, you'd adjust the toilet that way. What you do is on ours adjust the float up or down depending on the water line. So if your water line is too high, you want to adjust the float lower so that it cuts off earlier and lowers the water level. I mean, it's pretty obvious. I think the adjustments are pretty obvious and usually, especially in the newer units they're pretty easy to follow. It's usually within one inch from the top of the overflow. And this was restoring a normal water level in a toilet tank. This is Nicholas Iarocci, The Home Source guy, president and owner of Source Development, Inc., a residential and commercial construction company in Garnerville, New York helping you build a better life.
