Toilet w/Fluidmaster slow filling


I have a Fluidmaster system in my toilet that is really slow filling lately.

I tried to replace the valve, but it actually made the top of the tower (where the valve goes) leak. Exact same valve as the old one but new... strange. I put the old one back on, and tried to flush out the tower and the pressure seems fine.

Any thoughts?

Have you checked to see if the shut-off valve to the toilet is fully open with no debris inside the valve?
That can cause this to happen.
Turn the water main off and remove the toilet valve handle. Put a towel over thy toilet shut-off valve and have someone turn the water main on and off very briefly. That should flush out any debris.
Good Luck!

Actually just tried that, and no luck. O

ne thing I noticed though was that it sometimes takes a few flushes to get all of the contents down the bowl, and the toilet will then fill past the fill line...

the fluid master has a seal on top that you can change out. Couple $ for the part. As for the flushing, that is different, you may have a partial clog in the line. Try plunging the toilet,, and as for water going above the "fill line", there is an adjustment on the fill valve, when you replaced the old one, you might of pulled it up resulting in higher water level. Fluid masters are pretty easy to work on.

That's what I did.. I changed the seal (I said valve in the original post)... the new seal caused it to leak.
