Buttons on our concealed dual flush cistern have stuck in, water constantly running into pan?


the ring where the buttons are should unscrew and the full unit should pull out,if that dos,nt stop the water try to gently pull the plunger up, if that stops it push the plunger back in to flush toilet,see if plunger returns to normal position and water stops, if that dos,nt work have it checked out by aservce engineer.

We have installed a new fluidmaster toilet repair kit but the toilet keeps running


Hi dona way,

There are 2 things that can be adjusted to stop the toilet from running. It will keep running as long as the water level does not maintain itself.
First, is the valve at the exit hole in the tank seated completely. You may have to adjust the chain, or make sure the chain doesn't hangup so the valve seats well. Did you clean the opening well before putting the valve on? If there is calcium build up, you may have to sand the opening a bit to give a nice smooth level surface.

Second, Is the water running because the float is set too high and the tank fills past the overflow pipe opening. This also can be adjusted. The instructions that came with the kit should explain how to do this.

Good luck,

I hope this helps. If it does, please place a vote for me. Thanks,

Handie Andie

I have a whirlpool washer. I pulled it out to clean behind it and one of the hoses was dripping water, it was an in line and I think it was the hot water. How do I fix it so it won't drip?


well I don't know what type fitting yuor dealing with if it is a compression fitting just tighten it if it is a threaded fitting you can try tighting it but you should take it apart and re-dope the treads.

I have a large whirlpool tub in MB on 1st floor. When letting water out of tub it is coming up in a large walk-in shower. The shower is draining fine...need answer! thanks


sounds like there may be some blockage in pipes. try to run a long snake through both drains or run all fixtures in bathroom and try plunging vigorously in tub and shower while running water. if nothing still, it may be possible that your underground plumbing is back graded or incorrect fittings and plumbing installation.

''no water''


I too had the same problem as you with my pipes freezing, but my heat was the culprit. Basicly the problem was the same. I turned the water on in the sink and when the water thawed there the pump started and oh my god I had broken water pipes in the house under the counter, so I turned the main water valve off, or the pump from the breaker box for the well. The difference is that if you turn the well pump off then the water runs until the pressure goes down. If you turn the main water off it will stop sooner. I fixed the pipes under the sink and behind the dishwasher started to leak, Fixed that and again turned on the water again at the main valve. Ask where your main water lever is. My water started to run in the sink area, but the drains were frozen, I put a heater under the house and heated up the pvc pipe that was still frozen. Of course the toilet..... When it got alittle warmer and the heat on the pipe, things broke loose. The plumber was no where to be found because they were so busy, this worked for me and people had great ideas for me to try. When the water and the pump were turned back on all leaks were fixed and things are back to normal. I am now wiser...I hope this story helps somewhat.

Low water pressure- have a home water well


There is usually a metal filter at the wellpoint on the bottom of your drop-tube, but I don't think that is the problem if you are not getting particles in your water. This is easy to check for just by putting water in a glass and looking for little specks.

I would be more inclined to look for holes in the drop-tube where AIR is getting into the system, thus reducing the suction of the pump.

If you are using a "bladder tank" to maintain pressure, it could be that the "off" setting is too low. You want that to be in the 50-60 psi area. "ON" should be about 40 psi.

Anyway, I think an air leak is the more likely problem, but to find out for sure, you almost have to pull the drop-tube, which might be very long. That would best be left to a well service company.

Good luck!
