Customer Question

I am wondering if there is a way to convert toilets to allow then fill more with water then they are pre-set.
In my case it's not an issue of making an after 1985 toilet fill to the rim like they used to but to change toilets in Europe that fill with just enough water that you can barely see it. They are all sold like that here without exception and it is bad for hygiene and frankly rather disgusting..even if good for the environment. Therefore, I am hoping there is a way to ''fix'' them so they will fill with more water..by changing valves or..?

Can I get the model of your toilet?

And are you able to adjust the float to permit more water?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
I am not sure the models but they are all like this here. Two toilets are made by Grohne of Switzerland.
On some I can adjust the float and a little more water comes in but I can get it to stay that way. I feel like there could be someway to change some of the pieces to permanently adjust it?
