So, let’s dive in and learn how to adjust a Korky flush valve!

How To Adjust A Korky Flush Valve

Step 1: Check the Water Level

The first step in adjusting your Korky flush valve is to check the water level in your toilet tank. Make sure it’s set to the manufacturer’s water line. If it’s not, adjust the fill valve by turning the body of the fill valve counterclockwise to unlock it.

Step 2: Adjust the Fill Valve

Next, move the fill valve down to the marked waterline or half an inch below the top of the flush valve overflow tube. Once you’ve readjusted the fill valve, turn the body of the fill valve clockwise to lock it back into place.

Step 3: Check the Flapper

If your toilet is still running after adjusting the fill valve, check the flapper. If it’s closing right after you flush, the chain may have too much slack. Adjust the chain to have minimal slack and trim any excess chain. Also, make sure the chain is going as straight up and down as possible from the flush lever.

Step 4: Replace the Flapper

If these tips don’t resolve your issue, you may have an incorrect flapper and it needs to be replaced. You can find a new flapper easily online or at your local hardware store.

Step 5: Call Technical Support

Identify The Problem: Is Your Korky Flush Valve The Culprit?

If you’re experiencing slow filling or a constant running toilet, your Korky flush valve may be the culprit. The internal debris buildup in the fill valve can cause these issues. However, Korky fill valves are 100% serviceable, so you’re in luck. Follow the steps mentioned above to adjust the fill valve and check the water level. If these steps don’t resolve the issue, move on to checking and adjusting the flapper chain. If none of these steps work, it may be time to replace your flapper or call Korky’s Technical Support team for further assistance. Remember, Korky’s Technical Support team is always available to help you troubleshoot any issues you may have with your Korky flush valve.

Adjust The Korky Flush Valve For Optimal Performance

Adjusting your Korky flush valve can help improve the performance of your toilet and prevent water waste. The Korky Adjustable 2 inch Flush Valve and Premium Flapper Kit is designed to fit all 2-piece toilet tank brands and is quick and easy to install with no tools required. Follow these steps to adjust your Korky flush valve for optimal performance:

Step 1: Adjust the Flush Valve Height

The first step in adjusting your Korky flush valve is to adjust the height of the flush valve. The flush valve height can be easily adjusted from 7 inches to 11-1/2 inches without any tools or hack sawing required. This can be done by twisting the flush valve counterclockwise to unlock it, adjusting the height, and then twisting it clockwise to lock it back into place.

The Korky Ultra High Performance Flapper included in the kit is designed to ensure a tight, leak-proof seal and eliminate water waste by decreasing the amount of water flushed. Make sure the flapper is seated properly and there are no leaks.

Step 3: Adjust the Refill Tube

Next, adjust the refill tube to ensure the right amount of water is delivered to the bowl to maintain original performance. This can be done by adjusting the refill adjuster included in the kit.

Step 4: Test Your Toilet

Once you’ve made these adjustments, test your toilet to ensure it’s working properly. If you notice any issues, go back and make additional adjustments as needed.
