    Looking to find out if this valve is adjustable.

    It's in an older low profile toilet and the level is too high and water is leaking out around the handle.

    I don't see any obvious means to adjust water level.

    Any help would be appreciated, thank you in advance.

    that cap may be were the rubber diaphragm is I have change other flush valve brands and the diaphragm was a(fluidmaster #242 disc) I cant tell if that cap raises or lowers the water level you would think there would be arrows to increase or decrease the water level

    that fill valve is not a common one you would have to take the numbers off the inside of the tank and bring it to a plumbing supply house home depot/lowes would not carry it
