Question about American Standard Home
Have 30 year old american standard one piece toilet purchased in 1979.
Recently plumber installed new fill valve model #2003 no vent away. Inside tank there is date nov 10, 1977 828 2003 K77.
Have to flush 2 or 3 times to remove waste in toilet. When I push flush knob, why doesn't the water come in with sufficient volume and force to remove contents of bowl? I wrote letter to American Standard and they did not have a solution.
Do you have any advice to cure problem? Thank you.
Hello, this is a standard toilet you will need to inspect the flapper that is the rubber flap that holds the water up in the tank it works when you pull the lever it pulls the chain upward and lets the water flow if this flapper is old it may not stay up long enough for the water to flow. open the tank top and flush the toilet see if this flapper is staying up long enough and giving the tank enough time to empty if not change this rubber flapper its inexpensive part.
if this is not the reason then you need to adjust your water filler valve there should be a small screw on top of the pivoting float arm
if you have to adjust it for the water limit line inside the tank this will be the proper amount of water needed to flush once completely
also check that the chain lenth on the pull lever is not pulling the flapper down quicker than its supposed to,
try this let me know your results
hope it helps
