- Look to see if rust is above the water line and/or rust or discoloration on the top cap lever arm assembly which is attached to the adjustment rod. If there is evidence of rust or it is discolored Fluidmaster recommends replacing the fill valve.
- Look for signs of leaking at the water supply line to the fill valve (outside tank). Inspect water supply connector. Replace it if it is worn or over 5 years old to prevent flooding and property damage.
