Toto GMax Flushing System drips

This Toto toilet is great. However, while it does not run, one the tank fills up it continues to drip into the fill/drain pipe. Adjusting the flow level does not change this. What can I do to stop the dripping?

What you are experiencing is a flapper valve problem. Since I don't know what model you have I will give you a link to the generic GMax unit. Here is the parts breakdown for a GMax

I would suspect you need part #7 on this diagram a flapper valve. Take the old one with you since different colors ones are used on different models. You should go to the Toto site to locate a dealer first. You can find their site here:

I have a Sloan m101526 toilet tank and it's constantly making a running /hissing noise. At first it was just a drip noise then more then like a flowing noise.


Lift the top of and look. It will either be the flapper in the bottom is being held up by the chain or something, or the inlet valve is faulty. Flappers do wear out and warp. If you get 4 or 5 years you are lucky.

After typing this, you have a Flushmate in it. I would call a plumber!

When filling, the toilet makes a loud noise like a water buffalo dying and wont stop until I turn off the valve. whats the deal?


That miniature water buffalo may be living inside a clogged fill valve. It may be necessary to replace the valve to regain peace and quiet. If you do replace the fill valve, be sure to flush the water line first in case any debris is lingering.

Our Costco Water Ridge toilet won't flush unless we hold the button down for a while. Sometimes we have to do that twice.


You need to contact the manufacturer of the toilet. If it was recently purchased, there should be a warranty. Otherwise, they can probably tell you what parts are needed to repair it.

I have a push button flush on my toilet but the flush is getting less powerful and we have to wait ages before it will flush again despite the water level filling quickly????


Sounds like the syphon unit has scaled up. You can try flushing with a descaler fluid a couple of times to see if that will loosen the scale but otherwise replace the plastic syphon within the system. Cheap part, relatively easy fix if you know bit about plumbing. Confidence is the key.

What do snails eat


What do land snails eat?

Land snails are mainly herbivorous, which means they eat plant life. There are a few snails that are carnivores, but chances are that your snail in not. Snails love to eat just about anything you would put in a garden salad. My recommendation is to start with some romaine, green leaf or even ice burg lettuce. Snails tend to like the softest and wettest part of the plant. If you have an herb garden that produces far more herbs than you need then try picking the newest leaves off of some of your herbs to see if they like them. Apples and carrots can also be a favorite of your pet snail. The key to their diet is to see what grows naturally around the area where you found your snail and bring that to them. During the winter you will have to rely heavily on the produce in your refrigerator to keep them well feed. Remember if the snail is eating all the food you gave him or her then you need to leave more out for them. Slightly rotten food is just fine. They are not terribly picky as long as you give them a food they enjoy.
One last tip: During the spring and fall when your grass is the greenest make sure to cut a big handful of grass for your snail to eat. Both land and the common garden snail love grass and most leaves.

What do water snails eat?

The common water snail is predominately an herbivore. Water snail mainly feed on the algae that will naturally grow on the inside of your fish tank or fish bowl. If you are putting a new snail in a fish tank then watch out! If you have any vegetation in the tank that you are fond of then do not put your snail in the tank. Larger snails can wipe out all plant life in just a few days.
Snails also eat algae along with the microscopic creatures that naturally live in a healthy ecosystem. In most cases you will have to supplement their diet with fish food. Along with fish food cubed up apples and carrots are a favorite. It will take a day or two for the apple or carrot to sink to the bottom. Once on the bottom and partially decayed your pet snails will thank you for the treat.
Tip: If you have more than one snail they are going to reproduce. To help minimize the number of snails in your aquarium you can simply cut back on the about of food you feed your little guys.

Toilet leaks in front of it. have check the water lines to it and no leaks


The wax ring is leaking. Go to a hardware store and they should have one and explain how it works. You will need to pull the toilet though, to replace it.

There are lots of eco friendly toilets and if you have one, this is a common problem. You will have to replace the whole thing.
