The name of the float mechanism in a toilet is called a ball and cock.

They vibrate, but only ever so slightly. Remember that solid particles can only vibrate in a fixed position and cannot float about like fluids.

Sometimes the fill valve can vibrate while the tank is filling. Try removing the tank cover and flush the toilet, then check to see if you can stop the noise by pushing down or up on the float assembly. It may be as simple as adjusting the flow rate.

The labor cost to install a float valve in the toilet will depend on the hourly wage of the plumber. The part should take no longer than a hour to replace.

Is the question - does newspaper help things float?- the answer is yes until it absorbes water- similar to toilet paper! it Will float until it's saturated then it will sink!

If you have a copper float ball that will do it

It is internally overflowing due to malfunctioning of the float operated valve

User Avatar

then you wont have a car and a house and a person and you cant go to the toilet because it will float

User Avatar

either bend the arm of the float so it is partially submerged or adjust it with the screw that is attached to the float armature

User Avatar

your water pressure/volume is to much for the overflow to handle.after repair try to turn shut off valve under toilet to slow water fill in tank.test by holding down float while refilling toilet.

User Avatar

That's eay. turn off and drain the water then unscrew it and put the new one in.

AnswerYour gas float has a crack in it gas is getting into the float and it weights down the float so the computer thinks your tank is low on fuel. think of your gas float like float in the toilet bowl....if the float in the toilet bowl has a crack in it. it will stay at the bottom of the tank..same thing with your gas float..itstays at the bottom of the gas tank. Chevy Dealer has the float for $155.AnswerYour gas float has a crack in it gas is getting into the float and it weights down the float so the computer thinks your tank is low on fuel. think of your gas float like float in the toilet bowl....if the float in the toilet bowl has a crack in it. it will stay at the bottom of the tank..same thing with your gas float..itstays at the bottom of the gas tank. Chevy Dealer has the float for $155.Also, had this problem with my '01 Silverado and read about it in other blogs. Recommendations were to add Techron Fuel System Cleaner for $11 to the gas tank. After a few days the fuel tank sensor started working again. Techron cleans the sulphur off the sensor, as advertised, allowing it to pickup an electrical signal and eliminating false or no readings and also shuts off the low fuel light. Worked for me even though I bought a new sensor to install in the tank if this didn't work but it did. Cheap easy fix so far!

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.

When a toilet runs it is due to one of three parts that are worn out and must be replaced - the full valve also know as ballcock, the flapper or rubber tank ball, or worn flush valve which is the part the flapper or rubber ball sits on.When there is no float ball then there must be a fill valve with a different type of float.Shut off the water to the toilet, remove the water in the tank and replace the fill valve and flapper or rubber ball.A toilet does NOT need THREE (3) parts to operateA toilet /urinal does not even require a tank or tank bulb /flapper /discMany fixtures can be flushed with a flushometer that either has a diaphragm / piston assembly and vacuum breaker for safety BUT does not aid in flushingThere are also pressure assisted toilets tanks NO float or water in the tank needed

There should be shut off valve called an angle stop towards the floor on the left side of your toilet. If you shut this valve by turning it clockwise this will stop the feed of water to the tank of your toilet.A:Your float valve may be defective or worn out

Assuming you have a regular tank toilet with a ball float and rubber flap and that the water is turned on and the tank is filling, the most common cause of a toilet not flushing is a broken or detached chain that runs from the handle lever to te rubber flap that keeps the water in the tank.

Refill valve is a very important component in your toilet since it fills the tank of the toilet after every flush. This valve uses a float to turn the water on and off. This is a plumber related work, only a professional plumber can repair it. alliedallcityinc.com

You can if you want a clogged toliet , a bad enviorment or even if you want it to float back up later

User Avatar

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.

You might actually want to seriously consider visiting your doctor. Make an appointment ASAP. When your bowel movements float, it means they are very aerated and can be a sign of intestinal worms or AIDS.

they are called astronauts and no they have a special space toilet that sucks in air so that they will not float away and for the boys there is a tube so their you know what wont get sucked in and their pee wont float away

User Avatar

If it is the common type with a float (big empty bulb) on the end of a rod, rotate the rod or bend it to make the float sit igher. The water will have to come higher in the tank to raise the rod high enough to shut of the water.

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.

That noise is called "water hammer" any quick closing device can have that problem. You can change your toilet to a gradual closing system ( a float ball ) instead of a quick closing system ( a ballcock).
