Hey guys, no need to get nasty.

Fran, any sort of wrench that will fit the knob (I can't be more specific because I don't even know the shape or design of your knob) will give you additional leverage and make it easier to turn. The longer the wrench, the easier it will be to turn - as long as you have enough space to turn the wrench.

My toilet has a 1 yr old fluidmaster valve assembly bad it takes nearly 3 minutes to fill after flush,a make s a loud hissing sound. I have another toilet thank takes 36 seconds to fill and more quiet,...


The fill valve may be clogged with dirt or scale. After turning the water supply valve off remove the top of the valve by grasping the black cap section with one hand and the shaft section below with the other. Turn 1/4 turn and the top should come off. Check for any dirt or scale on the top section. Take a paper or plastic cup and turn it up side down holding firmly over shaft section, turn water on to toilet ,water is going to come out under pressure so be prepared to hold cup firmly to catch water and divert it down into tank. This will allow any dirt or scale in the line to be flushed out. Turn water back off reassemble cap section and turn water back on.try flushing toilet to see if problem has been solved.
Hope this helps.

Tip

How to reset your toilet


Things you'll need.
New toilet bowl bolts, wax ring, toilet flex supply line (if you don't plan on re-usings old) , crescent wrench, channel locks, plastic cup, newspaper, hack saw, towel, protective gloves (latex, vinyl).

First thing is to turn off the water supply to the toilet. Flush your toilet and hold down the lever to get as much water out of the tank as possible. Now take a plastic cup and scoop out the remaining water in bowl, throw into tub or sink.

Take your crescent wrench and un-bolt tank from floor. If bolts spin, I suggest just cutting them right below the nut, being careful not to scratch or break your toilet. Your toilet will break or crack if your put to much pressure on it, the most common spot for a crack is by the bolt holes. Dissconect supply line from tank holding cup below it to catch the water, if supply line is flex you can leave attached to shut-off valve, if rigid, remove from shut-off valve. Use towel to wipe up water.

Place newspaper out on floor. Stand over toilet facing the tank, your legs on either side of bowl, grab toilet right in front of tank on the bowl. pick straight up, your going to be hunched over while your carrying the toilet and walking like a penguin, just try to keep toilet level as you carry to newspaper.

Remove old seal from bottom of toilet and around toilet drain. Wear gloves and put spoils into plastic bag. Use screw driver to scrape any chunks up. Clean area. Remove old bolts from toilet ring and place new ones in. If toilet ring is broke, call a plumber. Place new wax ring on toilet ring. Make sure bolts are pointing straight up. Get toilet above bolts and lower slowly guiding bolts through toilet holes. After toilet is on, push with light steady pressure straight down to help wax ring spread out even and make new seal. If toilet is leaning towards wall as you push then compensate to have it lower level as possible. Never use a cold wax ring, have it at room temperature. After its lowered sit on toilet for a minute.

Remove any wax that has oozed out and place nuts on bolts, with washers going on first. Hand tighten both sides, then take crescent wrench and tighten down slowly alternating sides, a couple turns on one side then a couple on the other making the toilet set level and ensuring a good seal.
Do not over tighten As it gets harder to turn nut, take your index and thumb and pinch the end of the wrench. Hold with enough force to just hold the wrench, tighten until your fingers slip off. That's the best way I can describe how to tighten bolts safely with out damaging your toilet, if there is a leak you may need to tighten a bit more, use your best judgment. Use hack saw to cut-off excess of bolt,

Attach your supply line and turn water back on slowly. Test for leaks, if no leaks your good.

Do not caulk around your toilet: all that does is turn a leak into a disaster by keeping it hidden from you, Eventually your sub floor will rot and you will have a huge repair bill.

The little white tube in my Jaccuzzi toilet comes disconnected with the pressure of the water and you have water all over the floor. Any solutions?


You have too much pressure coming through the line. Turn down the water supply pressure by turning down the knob on the supply tube so just enough water comes through to flush but not so much that is blows the tube out.

Eljer toilet bolts rusted causing massive flooding


Turn off the water at the supply (under the toilet, usually).Flush the tank to remove all water from the tank.Disconnect the supply from the tank.Remove bolt caps or bolt covers from where the toilet bolts to the bathroom floor.Remove bolts from the floor flange. When you lift the toilet up, you'll see a metal or plastic flange. If the toilet has been there for a long time the bolts may not pull out of the flange easily. In this case you may have to use a small hacksaw to cut the bolt below the nut.Put newspaper or an old towel on the floor so you can place the old toilet on it. Lift the toilet off the flange.Take the new bowl (assuming this is a two-piece toilet) and turn it upside down. Position the wax ring on the horn of the outlet. Install new solid brass flange bolts, mount them and position them on the centerline on either side of the outlet.Push the bowl down over the bolts and seal the outlet. The wax will squeeze down and seal.Put the new bolts, washers and bolt caps on. You may have to trim the bolt with a hacksaw.Once the bolts are secure, mount the tank.Make sure the gasket between the tank and toilet is in place. Then position the tank on the bowl. Run bolts through the tank and secure. Don't over tighten (the tank can crack).Hook up the water supply line.Connect the supply to the line on the bottom of the tank.Turn on the water.Let the tank fill.Flush once or twice to make sure the water control is properly adjusted.Put the tank lid on.Enjoy.

Toilet Carolla takes 5 minutes to refill


Shut water off at toilet and remove supply at tank connection. Get a bucket and test the flow of water by turning valve back on. If it is good then you know the problem is the fill valve. If you can't free any debris from the bottom of fill valve, replace it. Be sure before you reconnect supply to new valve after you flush out supply into bucket.

Should flow out of supply line be weak, the valve and supply should be changed. It is always good practice to replace the supply lines after working on fixtures. Faulty supply lines can cause considerable damage to your home. Always make sure connections are nice and snug (don't over tighten)

One more note: If your home still has galvanized piping, don't waste your money on new updated, high efficiency fixtures and appliances! They will ALL give you problems from the rust and corrosion that flows through your galvanized pipes. Today everything is designed for low flow, water saving and efficiency. That means they contain restrictive components which easily become congested from rusty galvanized piping! Call a professional to replace your entire water system from the source with copper. You can then enjoy the Tank-less water heaters, electronic faucets, pull out faucets and ultra low flow toilets with far fewer problems!

How do i flush the pipes out? (when i flush the toilet it will not re-fill water) one of the answers was to flush the pipes


If you have a supply shut off to fixture shut it off and disconnect supply line from inlet to toilet . If your supply line to toilet is a flexible line then bend it so that you can direct water to small container. Slowly turn valve on to see what flow rate is at that point. If flow rate is not good then I would shut water off to house and replace valve. If flow rate to toliet is good I would reccomend you replace flush vallve. To do this shut off water supply to toilet. Disconnect supply nut to bottom of flush valve. There will be a retaining nut that holds flush valve in place in toilet tank. Remove flush valve after removing fill tube from flush valve to overflow tube. Replace with toto replacement valve or use Fluidmaster 400A. Instructions on box of 400A are easy to follow and if you have flex connector you won't need supply line washer. I would reccomend that before you install new valve that you put rubber gasket on shank of valve and slid it about halfway up the shaft. Make sure that inside of tank is dry and use a small bead of silicon caulking on top and bottom side of shaft gasket. slid gasket the rest of the way on valve shank,install in tank and put on retaing nut hand tight. Push down on top of valve and using channel lock pliers finish tightening nut securely.You may need to reach into tank and grasp valve body to stop it from turning. There are other things you can do if you have a working supply valve. Shut off valve and remove screws that hold top of valve in place and remove and clean surfaces. You can turn valve on slowly to help flush out any rust or mineral deposits. I hope this is of some help to you. Thanks

Our toilet is 127mmsfrom the wall to the centre of the s fitting and most toilets are 140mm, how can we fit a new toilet pleaase, also the water pipe is on the left hand side and toilets i have loked at...


Toilets water pipes can come on either side majority are on the left side when facing toilet.A longer water supply line can be used for the water connection if the toilet has it on the opposite side.A plumbing supply house and some good hardware stores will carry a close rough toilet that can set 50 mms closer to the wall than a standard toilet. Generally toilets are measured from the wall to the center of the drain in the floor which standard is 304.8 mm so a close rough would fit with a drain 254 mms from the wall

The hot water knob on my kitchen sink leaks


You will need to find out the make and model of your faucet, if necessary take some pictures, go to a hardware store. If your faucet is a major brand the hardware store will have or be able to order a parts kit for you. it should be pretty cheap, and come with directions 

You shouldn't need any special tools, just screwdrivers pliers etc...

Good luck, have fun, and don't forget to turn off the water under the sink before you start. ;)

Toto Toilet - no water flow to refill tank after flush


Remove the tank lid and look at the fill valve. Is it a yellow valve?
This fill valve is common on the Toto Toilets and can easliy plug with debrie.

They can be disassmbled and cleaned. however, I usually just replace the valve with Fluid Master Fill valve.
You will also want to check the water coming into the toilet by turning off the water that supplies the toilet and disconnecting the water supply line. After removing the water supply line turn on the water at the valve to make sure that the water is flowing properly. Check the supply line also to make sure it is not plugged.
Be sure and place a small container to catch the water that will come from the valve. A towell will also help from making too much of a mess.
If the Supply line and the valve are clear the problem is in the fill valve.
The G-Max system denotes the Flushiing system which is a 3" flapper that allows the water from the tank to flow into the bowl quicker.
Good Toilets!
