CONNECT WATER SUPPLY
a. Flush tank and check that tank fills and shuts off within 30 to 60
seconds, and tank water level is set as specified on tank rear wall.
b. To adjust water level: turn water level adjustment screw
counterclockwise to raise level; turn adjustment screw clockwise to
lower level.
c. To adjust flow rate (tank fill time): turn flow rate adjustment screw
clockwise to decrease flow rate (increase fill time); turn adjustment
screw counterclockwise to increase flow rate (decrease fill time).
d. Carefully position tank cover on tank.
e. The flush valve float has been factory set and does not require
adjustments. Repositioning of the float will change the amount of
water used which may effect the toilet's performance.
f. If bowl fails to siphon, an adjustment may be required with the lift chain.
Simply remove the bead chain from the retainment clip (see Fig. 10A)
and take up slack on the chain, and reinsert on lift rod. Make sure the
chain is not too taught.
