Leaky Seal


By leaking do you mean onto the bathroom floor, or is water escaping out the flush valve (the part that the Hydroright is seated in) into the toilet bowl. If the former 1) check toilet tank mounting bolts/gaskets for deterioration or looseness. These are usually 5/16"x3" brass bolts with rubber, plastic, and metal washers with a nut. They can be seen protruding through bottom of tank. 2) check flush valve and rubber gasket between tank and bowl. The flush valve is the one that the refill tube goes into and the hydroright seats into.
If you are only leaking water into bowl I would suggest the blue dome gasket ( part of Hydroright kit) is not properly seated properly into flushvalve, and you may have to re-install hydroright (the instructions explain how to remove and re-install) . I broke my existing/old flush valve at the base when trying to install my Hydroright so maybe it was fortuitous that it broke and I had to install a new one. Hope this helps.

Tip

How to fix a refill valve


  • Brass-style toilet refill valves can often be repaired. To take a valve apart, remove the lever's screws. This allows you to lift out the float arm and valve plunger. Check the flat rubber washer on the end of the plunger. If it's worn, you can pull it out with pliers and either turn it around or replace it. This procedure usually corrects an overfilling problem. Next, reassemble the valve. If the tank continues to overfill, check to make sure the operating lever at the end of the float arm is functioning properly.

  • New refill valve. To replace the entire refill valve assembly, first turn off the water supply. The tank should then be flushed and sponged out, as detailed previously. Remove the inlet nut and riser tube from the bottom of the refill valve beneath the tank. Hold the refill valve inside the tank with a padded locking plier/wrench to keep it from turning, and remove the nut beneath the tank. With the nut off, the refill valve assembly can be lifted out and a new one inserted in its place. Follow the exact instructions included with the unit you purchase.

  • Finally, reconnect the riser tube and turn the water on. The tank should fill, allowing you to adjust the water level according to the instructions that were included with the valve.

  • Anti-siphon valves. The best refill valves offer anti-siphon protection. In fact, this may be a requirement. This protection prevents back siphonage of toilet tank water into your home's potable water supply system if a vacuum occurs in the toilet's water supply system. Whether or not this is a code requirement, the anti-siphon valve is a good idea to protect your family and public health.

300. Why does it occasionally get stuck in the up position or fails to refill tank completely?


It has been my experience that they are reliable. Fluidmaster instructions say to flush the valve (not the toilet) after installation to purge debris. It may be necessary to do this again. Also check for interference with the refill tubing. The float and linkage should be able to move freely.

Toilet Flushing


Is your supply valve on below the toilet? Maybe the float inside the tank is stuck in the up position? Or else the float valve is stuck. Shut off the supply valve below the toilet tank. Take off the line going to the tank. Slowly open up the valve a little does water come out? If it does, I would replace the float assembly with a new one. If there is no water, then the problem is in the plumbing going to the supply valve in your house. Good luck and please rate my answer so I get points

Dual flush toilet takes a long time to refill after flushing


Empty tank and remove the unit where the water comes in. Now look inside the bottom of the unit. Is there a rubber piece in there? Get a pair of pliars and pull it out.It's restricting the re-fill flow. I had the same problem and did this to two of my toilets and now they re-fill in just seconds. Don't know why they even put those in there.

My Crane Toilet is several years old. When the tank is refilling following a flush, water sprays in front of the white towwer with some force. Sometimes the water level gets higher than the overflow...


On a toilet that old I would recommend that you change the flush valve and float assembly to a newer version. One I particullarly like is the 400A Fluidmaster.It is simply to install and incorporates the flush valve and float valve into one unit.
They are simple to install as long as you can shut the water supply off. The instructions are printed on the inside of the box so just follow them closely. The only thing I add to there instructions is to use a small amount of silicone caulk around both sides of rubber washer that goes on the base of the valve.Adjust height on valve before you install it to get it close. The final float level can be set with spring clip on float rod.
I have been useing these valves for many years and they will work on most toilets and they are almost maintainance free.Added plus they are inexpensive. Thank you.

I have a toto toilet that doesn't start to refill until a couple of minutes after I flush. Any ideas. Thanks.


Several ideas. Start to fill? Have you looked inside the tank to see what's going on? If it just filling very slowly, then you most likely have some calcuim build up inside your flush valve blocking some flow, if this is the case you will have to clean the flush valve. If your flush valve is staying up and the toilet is "running" unitil the float drops. The float (either the arm ballcock style, or newer fluidmaster) is rubbing on either the flush lever or side of the tank, and taking longer to drop to let the water start flowing. I

When I flush the toilet does flush fine but it makes a gasping sound as it tries to refill the tank. Eventually (after 5 minutes) the tank fills and the gasping stops.


new quality flush valves are inexpensive. suggest you buy a new one at a big box store (Lowe's e.g.) . easy to install, just follow the directions.....a Fluid Master or Gorkie should work fine...$25 or less, probably less.....

Pegasus toilet tank will not refill


Most likely the washer came off and is stuck in the shut off valve or the float is stuck all the way up. Checkk adjustment screw in the top of the water control valve to make sure it is not turned all the way in.
