SOURCE: Saniplus motor (flushing noise) keeps repeating

I believe you have a problem with a leak. The pump is filling back up. See is the water is leaking out somewhere. Hopefully, you don't have a leak under the house. The water coming into the pump is going somewhere when it comes on.

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...

SOURCE: toilet keeps filling tank every 10 minutes

If there is no water on the floor then the water is leaking down the main tank drain. Take off the tank lid, turn off the water supply to the toilet. Fllush as much water out as you can. Look at the main drain, sometimes if the flapper valve is connected with a chain, the chain can get caught between the flapper valve and the drain hole, the flapper valve is pliable so it tries to seal around the obstruction but can't always do it. Make sure there is obstruction, that the flapper valve is not out of shape or old and non-pliable and that it lines up with the drain hole and doesn't get "hung up" on anything.

SOURCE: my toilet cistern is continually hissing

Hi I have exactly the same problem, in fact it could have been me writing this - 3 toliets fine, main bathroom hisses. The Geberit flushing ciphen on the left (the smaller one) has been replaced and there is still a problem. If you look carefully,the water level needs to come up over the lip of an opening on the Geberit part and this causes the valve mechanism to shut off and stop the hissing. It is fine for about 40 minutes and then the hissing starts again if you don't flush it. The reason is that the water level has gone down but there is no obvious signs of where the water is going. It could be that the central flush mechanism is leaking slightly. I am going to replace this part next. If I were you I'd see if you are getting any water leakage into the pan when toilet not in use to see if the water level in the cistern is going down James T

SOURCE: Kohler one-piece has no flushing power

Don't flush more water! Trash the toilet and replace it with a toilet that uses less water and flushes efficiently; practically every manufacturer makes a dual flush or eco model. Spend your money on a good toilet rather than paying for and wasting water every day.

What's wrong with macerating toilet?


What is most likely the case is that the toilet is not properly vented by waste plumbing standards. Not all jurisdictions require macerating toilets to be vented, but by not doing so causes pressure in the drain lines as well as some suction which can pull water from sink traps, allowing odors and insects to get into the home.

Loud squealing noise from water softener when toilet flushed


The unit may be in a regeneration cycle during the day. Reset to proper time of day.
It also sounds like you may need an air arestor installed on the plumbing in the house. When air becomes trapped in the plumbing lines it can cause the plumbing to "hammer" during periods of heavy usage. You would need to contact a plumber for proper placement of this device on your plumbing system.

The flush valve closes almost immediately so that there is an inadeuate flush. The valve is a large cylinder about the width of a soda can and there is no adjustment I can see.


you will need to find a plumbing store and purchase a new one, I live in SC and Larrys' Plumbing sales them, so I am sure like a HD Furgersens etc. will. Good Luck Tim

Hello. I doubt that the installer would not install it properly. That said, the issue you are having makes me wonder if your bath drain plumbing is properly vented to the outdoors through the roof. Joe

Pretty new toilet seems to drip down the drane pipe after flush. Sounds like a little trickle as if there is too much water in the bottom an it is running out.


Sounds like the flapper isn't sitting properly. Take the lid off the tank and put a few drops of food coloring in it. Let it sit for a while (do not flush). If the water in the bowl turns that color, that means the flapper needs replacing. Simple to do and costs about 5 bucks. Good luck

Whenever next door neighbours turn their taps on or flush their toilets we can hear loud noises. Can this be fixed?


If it is the same building, it is NOT likely the problem of the sound can easily be fixed. The sound will telegraph through the structure.

Have Mansfield #160 and hear a fog horn like sound when flushing toilet. What can I do to fix?


Are your wast water pipes in your house vented through the roof? If they are maybe the vent pipe is clogged. At my father in-laws house the pipes are not vented through the roof like their supposed to be to vent sewer gas. they are not vented at all. Every time you flush it sounds like someone is downs stairs screaming. Something to do with air/ suction in the pipes.
