A: No, chances are you are getting air in your water supply prior to it getting to the toilet tank. Either that or there in air in the bottom of the stem which will work itself out after a few flushes. As long as the valve works properly its all good.
A: Yes I bought mine last week I’ve got the labor install under an hour and it was an excellent experience
A: Bubbles coming from the bottom of the fill valve is normal. That's the water that comes in to refill your tank and the bubbles are the air that's mixed in with the water that's coming from your pipes.

A: This only a fill valve, so if the button on top only lifts the flapper valve to flush, it should work just fine.
A: Yes this fill valve can be used in a large range of toilets
A: Since this part only controls the fill and not the flush I would say yes.
A: Probably. If your toilet is not a dual flush. Just look inside and see what's in there already.
A: First, if possible I would just slam it up and down and see it it will stop. Then the maybe bad news. Toto toilets are not always happy with “universal” parts. Check the Toto web site with your model number. Cheers, Jim
A: only if the sound like a cry bothers you. if you mean the toilet flushing occasionally by itself I would definetly replace the float
A: Hello Pat, I don't know what a "ghost flush' is referring to, however, a small particulate caught in the diaphragm of the fill valve could be the source of the "loud cry". Replacing the Fill Valve is about the least expensive thing to do with a toilet (other than the flapper). I believe that replacing the fill valve with a Fluidmaster will give you a ghost of a chance to rid yourself of the loud cry. You might want to wait until November, the cry might be useful for Halloween.
A: Should you replace the valve? This depends on different factors. If water level is below the top of the overflow drain pipe, then water is coming from the small pipe that goes from the drain valve into the overflow drain pipe. Fluidmaster recommends that this small pipe does not stick into the overflow drain pipe, they provide an attachment with their kit which you should use. If water level is at the top level of the overflow drain pipe, you can try to adjust the height of the float (plastic ball around the stem of the fill valve) by turning the big plastic screw. If water is still leaking, then you may consider replacing the fill valve. Hopefully this may solve your problem. Regarding you issue with the crying like sound, there can be many factors (e.g. drying washer in the fill valve), it may be better to replace the valve. Replacement is a simple process and directions that come with the kit is pretty useful.
A: Yes I would recommend replacing the fill valve.
A: Yes the rubber fill tube is included!
A: I just bought a 3 pack a couple months ago and there was a tube in every plastic bag. Call Fluidmaster. They address problems instantly. I've been using Fluidmaster valves for 30 years. I love them.
A: yes they do come with it . they are 12 inches long
A: Yes they are still included. If they are missing, it sounds like an error. I am sure that Home Depot will make it right promptly.
