because it is clogged If a toilet has a blockage it will over flowWhen you say the toilet will fill are you talking about the tank?
Inside the toilet tank there should be a small hose off of the fill valve that should be clipped to the inside of the fill tube to allow water to fill the bowl while it refills the tank after flushing.
change the flush valve
You don't, it should com up the pipe joined to tank.
The toilet may take so long to fill after you flush because the water pressure is so low. Generally, the water should fill up the tank in less than a minute.
Your float or other apparatus in the tank is not measuring the amount of water that is coming into the tank properly. It needs to be adjusted.
putt More water in the bowl
look inside your tank and see that the toilet bowl fill tube is connected and flowing with water when flushed. the fill tube is a 1/4-3/8" tube that is connected to the fill valve to the overflow and it should be spraying water down the overflow when the fill valve is filling. or Call a plumber
Do you watch it not get filled up? There is a little hose inside the tank that helps fill the toilet when the tank is filling. It may be detached from the vertica pipe. < --- this answer is for the bowl not filling up after you flush the toilet There can be many reasons why the tank will not fill up and one of them can be because your chain that pulls the rubber flapper up to flush is either caught on something or the rubber flapper can be pulled to high and will not fall back down to close. Another is if you have a plastic cone flapper then the flush handle bar that slips into the plastic cone sleeve can be wedged against the toilet tank. another reason can be because your fill valve is clogged or the water is shut off.
there is many different toilet tanks that use different fill valves but the concept is the same EXCEPT for pressure assist or (mostly in commercial buildings) flush valves which do not have toilet tanks. When water flows into the tank threw the open valve it begins to fill up the tank and while the tank is filling it is also raising the float which is connect to the valve and when the float raises to a set height it shuts of the fill valve by pressure from the float arm. Pressure assist toilets have pressure tanks inside the toilet tank and uses the pressure from the supply line to flush the bowl, I think they are the best toilets to buy if you don't mind the noise and if you have good water.
The width of a toilet tank can vary in size. The average width of a toilet tank is about 18 inches.
The toilet tank does not fill up after flushing because your float valve is either bad or set wrong. You need to try to change the setting. If that does not work, you need to replace it.
Most likely the flapper in the bottom of the tank is not sealing and letting water seep into the bowel.
Sounds like the flap that allows water to enter the bowl from the tank, isn't sealing. If this is true, the water will be constantly running.
typically these two problems are caused by two different things. A running toilet is most commonly caused by a leaking flapper (when you push down on the flush handle a chain lifts the flapper and lets the water escape the tank and "flush' into the bowl.) a water spurt is usually caused by a faulty fill valve (the part in the tank that attaches to the water supply and fills the tank after it is flushed.) with an 8 year old toilet both of these parts would most likely be worn out, either thru age or use.

They are called tank bolts.

The water in the lower toilet is probably being siphoned out of the tank by the negative pressure caused by flushing the upper toilet. This CAN happen if the water level in the tank of the lower toilet is over the top of the ballcock. If this is the case, the tank water is being siphoned into your drinking water! Replace the ballcock with a Fluidmaster right away. If you have a small white fill valve that sits in the bottom of the tank, get rid of it. These are illegal and WILL siphon under these conditions. If the lower toilet runs AFTER the fill cycle of the upper toilet, it may be that the ballcock seals at a lower pressure, and the pressure spike when the upper toilet shuts off causes it to run a bit until the added water closes the valve a little tighter.
Inside the tank, usually on the back wall, there will be a number impressed into the porcelain. This is the tank number for a two piece toilet, or a model number for a one piece toilet. It's usually a four digit number, sometimes preceded with a K- (example: K-1234). Sometimes this info is repeated on the underside of the lid. Usually the lid also has a five digit number, which is the lid number. All of these numbers can help you find the replacement parts to repair your toilet.
the toilet bowl will fill the bowl to a specific level to allow the trap to work properly and once the tank is done filling then you should have no water running into the bowl. To test and see if your tank is leaking into your bowl just put a few drops of food coloring in your filled tank and if you see the color in your bowl then you most likely have a leaky flapper or flush valve or can be your height of your tank water is to high and its running through the overflow or the fill valve is syphoning.
The tank above your toilet.
That is a fill valve and is part of the ballcock system. When someone pulls the lever, that pulls the chain and lifts the flush valve flapper and empties the tank into the bowl. That causes the float to drop, opening the fill valve and allowing water from the supply to enter and refill the tank.
If the toilet bowl fills lower than the previous waterline, the tank may not be working properly. Check that the float is moving freely and allowing the tank to refill all the way. Also make sure the filler tube is filling the toilet and is not directed elsewhere.
