SOURCE: the toilet will not flush,

Is it a new installation or was it working before and now there's a problem?

It could be rod-clearance, it could be your water pressure or an obstruction in the inlet-filter, or maybe a couple of other things. Different fixtures have different minimum pressure requirements. Some work at 25 PSI static pressure at the connection but others require a 35 PSI minimum. This should be specified in the OEM's manual that you should have received with the toilet.

When I flush thenwater fills to the fill line and slowly keeps on dripping over the top of the flush valve tube.


I would ckeck to see where water fill line is inside toilet tank and then adjust flush valve to try to get it to shut off at this point. Not knowing whether your toilet still has original flush valve it is hard to tell you how to fix it. If it has float mounted on rod to flush valve there is usually a set screw on the top of the flush valve in the center. Turn this screw clockwise to make valve shut off sooner. Try to set it so that water shuts off when it is at fill mark. If float is mounted on brass float rod you can support rod closest to flush valve with left hand and carefully bend rod down a little with your right. This will cause flush valve to shut off sooner. If the seat is worn to badly in flush valve you will need to replace it.

My toilet makes a high pitched whine after being flushed. Pressing down on the top of the tank mechanism makes it go away but the next time it flushes the whine returns.


I would suspect that the flush valve has a blokage in it that is causing a harmonic distortion to be transmitted thru your cold water piping.. One way you may be able to help this is to slow fill rate down on your flush valve. If your fush valve has a seperate float to shut off water supply to tank when it;s full there should be a adjustement screw onside of valve where float rod goes in. Adjust screw down to raise float and thus slow fill rate of tank, this should help with the noise. Ifyour toilet does not have adjustable float see if you have a valve on incoming water supply. If you do you can try slow down flow thru supply valve and see if that helps, Thanks

My dual flush toilet fills up slowly how do i fix


Lift the tank lid off, place it somewhere safe for a moment, and look at what happens: If you're talking about jiggling the handle to get the tank to start to fill with water, then it sounds like the chain or rope is out of adjustment. It can't be TOO TIGHT or the water will leak past your flapper (will cause your dripping noise, tank water level will leak down, causing constant refills), and it cant be TOO LOOSE or the toilet won't flush correctly. Since you didn't mention trouble flushing the toilet, I think that it may be a little too TIGHT. When you jiggle the flush lever-it is supposed to pull a chain or cable to open the flapper at the bottom of the tank. Flush the tank and watch what happens-all the way through to refilling the tank with water and shutting off the water refill valve-Does the flapper get stuck on the chain or something? It is supposed to fall back down to allow the tank to refill after flushing out your toilet. Does the chain look very loose? The dripping sound you described indicates that the flapper is not sealing 100%. The flapper is very easy to replace, you just have to get the adjustment set for when you flush the toilet how sensitive you need it. You amy have to play with it a little bit before you get the adjustment correct.

Hope this helps!

Downstairs toilet won't stop filling, upstairs toilet won't fill


for the upstairs if the valve is fully on there is not much you can do other than replace water service to the house or heaven forbid repipe.Valves usually don't restrict fill volume.But you can take the supply loose from the tank and stick it in a bucket turn the valve on and check the flow.this should narrow it down.Down stairs repair or replace flush valve

Noise of flush water


You have two issues inside of the toilet tank. The holding down the button is caused by your chain not being tight enough from the handle to the flapper. Take the slack out of that and replace the flapper. The second is that you need to replace the fill valve. This is what is making the noise when the tank is being refilled, and will have to be adjusted after it is installed.
Please remember to rate this.
