I am with jack here a photo of the leak or a description would be helpful, at the shutoff valve not the fill valve on the “crapper” itself. A leaky shutoff valve the valve stem packing may need a slight tightening, the nut below the handle, give it a 1/4 turn clockwise and see if the drip stops, this is common with older valves. Sometimes the valves need ...

Don’t call Toto. Call Geberit, part of Chicago faucets. They have much better tech support for diy’ers. Wall toilets vent the same as any toilet. One of the advantages of the 2x6 carriers over the 2x4 carriers is that you can alter the angle of the discharge ell. There are also offset discharge Ells available which maybe helpful. Perhaps a prewall ...

The issue is more likely to do with the linkage for the actuator, than the actual flush valve or full valve. Make sure the plastic pins that contact the flush actuator buttons are not too long. They can be “off” or slightly too long by a very small amount, Causing the issue. Also, make sure the actuator is installed so it fits flush to the wall, all the ...

You’re going to need to pull the bowl off the carrier/wall. Based on the fact the leak appears to be towards the top of the bowl, I’d check the filler tube/inlet. Make sure it’s cut to the correct length and make sure the gasket is greased so it goes in straight and smooth. I seriously doubt it’s the carrier.

You need to identify the toilet. There is often a brand logo under the toilet seat, between the bolt holes. That said, it appears to be a Duravit “darling new” wall toilet. There are two or three models within the range, each gets its own seat/cover. Measure the length of the top of the bowl from wall to front edge and it will correspond with the spec ...

Duravit has used two different in wall carriers, Geberit, and Grohe. Yours is Grohe. Both company have excellent technical customer support representatives that you can call. That said,there are 2 things to check other than the obvious issues with worn flapper gasket. If it’s less than 5 years old, I doubt that’s an issue. 1. there is a diaphragm ...

If it were me, I would contact the installer, and have them come back right away, but be incredibly friendly and nice and positive when you contact them.

Before replacing anything, empty the tank and clean the flapper and flapper gasket thoroughly with dish soap and the. Vinegar.

That's going to depend on the type of valve and the material it's made of. In your video, the valve moves because of the force to lift the flapper. That's normal. You just have to make sure the valve is tightened to the tank correctly so water doesn't leak out each time you flush and the valve moves. There i no reason to try and design a method to secure it, ...

I happen to like pure silicone grease for articulating plumbing parts. I keep a jar of food grade silicone grease in the shop. Its usually sold in scuba gear shops, but I see it gaining popularity for other applications. I'd clean the toilet flush button parts with something like CLR, lube with silicone grease and reassemble. Besides lubricating, the grease ...
