Did you know, that if the top of the overflow pipe
in your toilet is higher than the level of the flush lever opening,
water could leak out? To test this important system, overfill the tank
to check that overflow pipe is not too long. Top of overflow pipe

installation. If not, cut off overflow pipe as needed.

Re-assemble valve by reversing the above
procedure. Note: If the main valve is worn out, (look inside cap),
cleaning will not suffice, and a Lavelle
replacement cap assembly = $2.88
will be required.
Note: if the fill valve turns on and off by
itself, or runs continuously without spilling into the overflow tube,
the problem is not the valve. The fill valve is running due to a
slow leak in the tank, probably caused by your flapper being either worn
out, or out of alignment.
The quality of your water will determine how often you will need to service your Korky® Lavelle Quietfill® fill valve.
Five-year guarantee: The Korky Quietfill is made of quality materials. If it fails within five years of purchase return it to the factory. Lavelle states that they will replace it at no charge.
Please note: Lavelle Industries acquired Hunter Plumbing Products in 2000 and integrated the Hunter fill valve into the Korky line of products. They have improved the product since acquiring it, but it's essentially the Hunter valve.
