My toilet flushes, then the water in the bowl drains over 4-5 minutes resulting in sewer gas smells.


Look inside the tank under the lid, it sounds like the flapper that lets the water into the bowl is getting hung up on something when you flush. It could be the flushing lever. This would cause the flapper to stay open letting water to just pour into the open sewer line. It should be a simple fix. Just see what is binding the flapper & make an adjustment.

After automatic flush, water continuously runs into bowl. The water is coming from the upper bowl above the wand area.


i would think the syphon is not closing after the flush, so as the cistern fills it just runs straight into the pan. you'll need to replace the syphon...

I have a new American Standard Cadet 3 that was just installed. After flushing, the water fills into the bowl. However, after several minutes, the water in the bowl slowly drains away and is nearly gone....


Sorry for problem with new toilet.
You say water is leaking out of the bowl?

Toilets have 2 parts:
1) Tank: where water is stored for the flush and is sealed with a flapper.
2) Bowl: where water flushes down.

a) If tank is leaking water, then flapper is suspect. Replace flapper and see if that works.
Lift up flapper and run finger around rim to see if there is a rough spot that would indicate flush valve is defective, and needs replacement.
See typical flush valve

b) If bowl is leaking, that is very unusual and would indicate a crack in the porcelain.

If installer sold you the toilet, it is his responsibility to make good on product.
All products are guarantee against workmanship flaws.

Replaced the seals because it was running. Water is still leaking from the tank somewhere so it keeps refilling....it's constantly leaking and refilling. how can I repair this.


You say you have replaced seals. I assume that you are refering to the flaper valve that controls dumping water from tank to bowl to flush. To make sure you have a good seal put a dozen or so drops of food coloring directly into tank when it's full and observe for a hour or so to see if water in bowl is discoloring. If it is then you are still leaking there. You can shut off water supply off or flush toilet and manually hold flush valve closed. Check to see if there are any rough spots on flapper seal that could stop flapper from sealing good. If you find rough spot then make sure the surface is dry and sand lightly with medium grit sandpaper.120 grit or finer.
One other thing to check is if your toilet has the plastic or rubber tube that goes from the flush valve into the overflow. Make sure that this tube does not set below water level in tank when it is full as this can create a suction or syphon,
Hope this helps you. Thanks

My mothers toilet will not flush, its like theres no suction, when flushed the water in the bowl goes down very slowly but not all the way down to the hole and when it does its very slow weak suction. I...


Try getting a bucket full of water and dumping it pretty rapidly into the toilet bowl. This is essentially what happens when the toilet is flushed normally, but it removes the variable of how the water is being delivered from the tank to the bowl. It should swirl and go charging down the drain, quickly leaving the bowl with very little water. If it does not act that way, then problem is definitely that the drain is obstructed. When you snaked it, you probably used a fairly short snake (about 10 feet?). Try a plunger - use a good one not the kind designed for sinks. Flush multiple times and get vigorous with it. If that doesn't clear it you will have to remove the toilet and use a much larger and longer snake (50 ft or more). good luck, Al K

Toilet bowl gurgles after flushing cycle


Sounds like your toilet is not vented properly. Possilbly something caught in the trap is causing it to syphon

Super low water level in bowl decreases after flush refills


First, fyi, adjusting the knob? in the tank, or the fill level will not increase the amount of water in the bowl. The bowl fills to a certain point, and then as more water is added it starts to go over the built in trap, and down the drain. When you flush the toilet, all the water in the tank dumps into the bowl, and the existing water is pushed over the trap and down the drain. All of this being said it sounds like you may either have an internal crack, between the bowl and trap; you may have a crack that is draining under your toilet, (water spots?), or you have a more serious plumbing issue, improper venting, which is causing a vacuum, and pulling the water out. Hope this helps.

Standard toilet will not flush


If this is a new development, then you have a partially clogged drain or maybe a crack in the bowl assembly. If the toilet always did this, then perhaps the drain pipe was not installed correctly.

I would remove the toilet and run a snake through to the main stack. If you find that is clear, check the bowl for cracks and check the tank water level to be sure that the tank is filling to the water line on the tank
