SOURCE: The Sloan Flushmate is spraying

Without more specific detail about the origin of the spray (lower supply, discharge extension, drain valve, etc) it's hard to say what the problem is or exactly how to fix it. I suggest you call Flushmate Tech Support at 800-533-3460 (M-F, 8 - 4:30 ET). For best results, call right from the toilet.

They'll need to know the serial number, model number, fixture manufacturer, etc. to get you taken care of.

Best of luck!

SOURCE: flushmate 503 sprays water out

Turn off the water supply at the wall, flush the toilet to relieve the pressure inside the Flushmate, and call Flushmate Consumer Services at 800-533-3460 M-F, 8:00 - 4:30 ET.

They'll need to know the serial number and approximate date of installation of the Flushmate.

You could alos fill out a confidential "contact" form on the contact page of the Web site, www.flushmate.com.

If yu need to use the toilet in the meantime, you can "bucket flush" it by pouring 2 to 3 gallons of water into the bowl. This will generate a standard siphonic flush and won't give you the pressureized extractiopn but it will keep the toilet usable until a Flushmate support tech can diagnose the issue and provide a resolution.

Good luck!

How can I remove the Flushmate 503 to access the mounting screws at the bottom of the tank?


You will need to remove the china holding tank from the toilet bowl by removing the nuts on the underside of the china tank.

After you have the tank off the bowl, remove the two plastic lock-nuts used to mount the Flushmate into the china tank and slide the Flushmate out of the china tank.

After you install the new tank-to-bowl bolts & washers, reverse the process to reinstall the Flushmate unit and remount the china tank.

Flushmate 503 sprays water out of top of tank, apparently coming for under the flushmate system. The valve doesn't seem to leak. Iahve pressure tested it.

The Sloan Flushmate is spraying water out of the bottom valve; instead of down, the water is spraying up and all over the tank. How can I fix this?

I have 5 kohler pressure assist toilets with flushmate 503 series tanks in my home. Several of my bowls have minimal to no bowl rinse. My water pressure is more than adequate. I recently changed a...


There are two holes in the top of the bowl where the tank attaches. As you indicate, one hole delivers water to the jet at the inlet to trap passageway, and another smaller hole to direct water to the rim.

I have seen in some cases the gasket that seals the tank to the bowl block the smaller rim-fed hole. All you need to do is knotch the gasket where the hole is located and re-install the gasket so the knotch is located over the hole. If you have any other questions please call the 800 phone number on top of the Flushmate.

Water level in bowl is too low so it's a problem keeping it clean. How can I raise the water level?


All toilet bowls have a preset water level determined buy the design of the internal s-trap and can not be change. However if the water level in the tank is not as high as it should be this will affect the water put into the bowel as the bowel in refilled by the flush valve and if it is set to stop before it get filled to the proper setting the bowl water level may be low.
A quick test is to see if the water level in the tank is up to the line in the tank most all toilet tanks have a line either stenciled or marked with a indentation in the porcelain. Another way is to mark the level in the bowel with tape or a marker then pour water slowly into the bowel not fast enough to flush it wait to see if it stays higher then the mark you made or settles back to that level.

Toilet was working perfect this morning until I flushed it and then the water would not stop. I turned the water off completely


The Shut-off mechanism inside the toilet tank is staying open. Turn the water back on, Remove the tank lid and flush to see exactly what is going on. You should notice that the rubber piece of the mechanism does not go back down to cover the flush hole. That should be your problem. Spray some lubricant (WD-40) on the moving hinge at the top of it or replace the entire assembly.

Flushmate 503 - loud squeaky scary noises


Have you tried the "800" number on the tank label or visited the Flushmate Web site?

Could be related to the plumbing or the Flushmate. Technical support should be able to help you pinpoint the cause and, if it's Flushmate-related and under warranty, provide a resolution.

Good luck!

My model# is M-101526-F.I purchase unit 7/2000.When I try to flush,I don,t have the pressure that I normally get.I do see some water in the tank.I also need to shake the handle to stop the filling process...


Have you tried the "800" number on the Flushmate label? Loss of air pressure may mean there's a leak in the cartridge, air inducer valve, or possibly even the tank itself.

The handle-shaking thing typically means the handle and rod are binding up and holding the cartridge down after the flush or that you need to increase the clearance between the rod and cartridge cap.

Flushmate tech support should be able to help you identify the cause of the air loss and advise you on the cartridge cap adjustment.

You can also view some helpful videos at www.howto.flushmate.com.

Good luck.
