– Get the valve height adjusted or get the tube heighten up, or you can also simply get the water level adjusted down. This is to fix just if the valve act as a siphon.
– Maybe you will need to get the whole valve replaced if it still won’t stop running/ out of order.
– There might be one or more of non rubber components which get broken inside the water mechanism of the toilet. For example is the lever connected to the plastic ball that the water shut off by getting a button pressed down as the water level rises.
