Tank water splash after fresh toilet

After fresh toilet, tank water splashed out of tank recently. Removing tank cover, it could be found that the inlet water rapidly splash out with larger amount. Adjusting top lever screw, water amount reducing but still splash out some till no water come out if screw tight enough. Is there any other way to adjust? If new part needs, which part is required? Ball with lever or vertical inlet pipe with valve built in? Thanks

Get a different fill valve. Most/all replacement ones you find at a big box store discharge the water without splashing.

I think that your toilet refill valve is broken. There is an unwanted crack or hole in that yellow piece. Water is not supposed to come out there, that high up.

The yellow piece, the black stalk under it, the ball, and the lever all come out in one piece without disturbing the flush handle and the flapper.. Most folks prefer to get a new valve with the stalk and a vertical float.

What is a fresh toilet?

If that does not fix the problem, could be you have too high of water pressure. Backing off on the isolation valve that feeds to the toilet may help.
