So flapper is not the issue.
I turned off water supply to tank (after tank is full), and noticed the water is now leaking to the bowl at 50% lesser rate. Suggestions?

make sure the little chain isn't getting caught under the flapper. mine did that so I shortened it up

The only way water can leave the tank is via the opening that is sealed by the flapper, so something is wrong there if you are losing water.

Not quite true: if the water level in the tank rises above the rim of the overflow pipe, it runs away into the bowl.

Worst case scenario, you have to disconnect the hose from the shutoff and separate the tank from the toilet. Undo the bottom nut and replace the fill unit.clark_ji wrote: ↑ My toilet is very tight to the wall like 2 inches away and I cannot reach the water supply nut even with a basin wrench because there is not much room to manoeuvre.
Anyone can recommend a different wrench? What is the size of the nut? Was thinking of getting a deep socket with an extender since there is more room closer to the floor.

It is a one piece toilet. Not willing to displace the toilet either since looking for a simpler solution like a tool that is narrow enough to reach the nut to loosen and tighten. Do you know if there is a deep socket that can fit?

I feared you might have a one piece...dang that's bad. How would you fit a socket in there with the hose in the way ?
