Is there a way to change the toilet from front flush to top flush to accommodate the button on the top of the unit in the tank?


So did the top not come with the tank itself, is it a replacement? Or is it a tank where you can choose top or front flushing?

In my experience the mechanism for top flush is more complicated than front flush which just lifts the flapper. Take the top off and look. See if there is a link that can be taken from the front and clipped to the top. you state is has a 'self contained unit', so it doesn't sound like a standard lifting flapper, so you may well be able to choose.

Toilet is running


The most common reason for a toilet to continue to run is a problem with either the flapper or the entire flush valve itself. The water is slowly draining so the fill valve keeps running.
The flapper is the least expensive and easiest solution, so start their. It's usually around $5. If that doesn't solve the problem, I would purchase a flush valve kit, around $20, and replace your flush valve.
*Note: If you have to replace the flush valve, you have to take your toilet apart. Start with the flapper.

Hello. Your lid has two buttons so you can do a half flush or a full flush. A water saving feature. Since the toilet is flushing by itself every hour or so, you must have a leaking flush valve. Replace the valve to solve that problem. Joe

Toilet flushes by its self


Water pressure makes the unit kick on and off by itself. If the pump is turning on by itself that means that somehow water is draining into the pump creating enough water pressure that it will make it kick on and off. Inspect the flapper on the check valve inside the discharge elbow, also check the flapper on the flush valve inside the toilet tank, the flapper may not be closing properly and is allowing water to enter the pump.

Toilet wont flush completely. it may take 4 times or more to flush solids. i at first thought this was related to heavy rains we had been receiving in the area over a period of about 4 months. 2 days...


there is no air release. the vent must be clogged somewhere. you can take a hose up there and see if it drains all the way or floods over. since the tub drain has a trap and the toilet itself is a trap, there has to bee a good amount of air pressure coming up without a release. i would say an obstruction. possibly at the junction of the main and the vent.
