In response to Re: Toilet fill valve leaking
I have used the Fluidmaster 400 exclusively for at least the past 25 years on systems with pressures up to 150 psi, without a failure. Yours may have been purchased at Home Depot, or Lowes, in which case, it had a good chance of being defective. Take it back and get a new one.

: Recently installed a new fill valve on my toilet, a Fluidmaster 400. It was fine at first but now is squirting water out from the top when filling the tank.
: I have taken the top off(rotating 1/8 counterclockwise)
: and everything looks fine. If I only turn the shutoff valve leading to the tank on a little it doesn't leak till the tank is full and full pressure is applied. I can see the top move up a little when full pressure is applied. Is the valve defective or is my pressure too high? Should I get a different brand valve? Any advice would be appreciated.
