Kohler 81100 Pressure-Clean Flushometer Toilet

My toilet is flushing with progressively less pressure. I have checked, plunged, and snaked the line from the toilet. The problem seems to be the toilet itself. Is there a way to re-pressurize the tank? I HATE my Kohler 81100. And I've lived with this piece of s*** for years, having to flush 2-3 times after each use, because it was so expensive. Now it runs for almost 30 minutes after each use, so I have to use another bathroom altogether.

This type of flush system can be re presurised quickly by holding down the flush handle for about good 2 minutes, then release , wait for the tank to be refilled with water.
Now you can flush away your inner rotting mess down tube good-by...

    My husband followed your suggestion and held down for 3 minutes for good measure and it seemed to do the trick. We'll keep an eye on it. Thanks so much!

You solved the problem yourself! This toilet is junk! I suggest replacing with something that works such as the Toto Drake.

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.

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.
