If necessary, cut the refill tube to length. Clip or insert the tube into the overflow pipe. Turn on the water, flush, and make sure there are no leaks under the toilet. If there are, loosen the nuts securing the valve under the toilet, reseat the valve, and retighten the nuts. 6. ADJUST THE FLOAT. When you flush, the water should shut off when the level reaches about 1 in. below the top of the overflow tube. If necessary, flush the toilet to drain and adjust the float height. On this particular model, you depress a button on the side of the float to move it up and down (rather than using an adjustable clip).

2. ADJUSTING A VALVE BODY FLOAT. If you have a float that travels up the valve body, the float is likely secured to a metal rod that’s connected to the refill valve lever. Squeeze the clip and move the float down 1 in. When the tank fills, the water level should be about 1 in. from the top of the refill tube. If it’s not, repeat the procedure, adjusting the float until you get it right. Newer mechanisms often have a knurled knob on top or a different type of clip for adjusting the float height.

For large adjustments, you can loosen a plastic wing nut to adjust the angle of the ball arm. Most likely turning the screw at top counterclockwise will be enough. Some older balls don’t have adjustment screws. These have metal arms that you can bend down to adjust the ball. 1 2 QUICK TIP Newer toilets are designed to use less water than older models. If you want to save water with your older toilet, try moving the adjustment clip down an inch or two, adjusting until the flush is just powerful enough to do the job.
