There is a blockage at your main sewer drain

ave yu noticed a back flow up inot the tub?

if so the problem is out toward the main line from the house

find the cleanout outside or under the house near the foundation and use a snake to clean it out


You can use a high pressure whater hosue to try to fix this but i am afraid it is roots into your drain line

good luck

My jacuzzi toilet doesnt fill with enought water in the bowl to remove waste from porcilin when flushing


Hi, W/D here.
Check the water level in the tank. The force to flush waste comes from there. Normally the fill line is cast into the back of the tank, but sometimes it is on the overflow tube. Raise the level if it is low.
Also, make sure that the tubing from the fill valve is connected to the over flow tube (the tall tube).
Best regards, --W/D--

Please tell me how to get more water in my toilet bowl..not the tank..the bowl please..thankyou. It is a Jacuzzi Era Elongated bowl.


The water level in the bowl is determined by the built in trap in the back of the bowl. Water is allowed to enter the toilet and it then "over flows" the p trap in the back when flushed. Once it's flowing, it syphons the water out of the bowl. While the tank is re-filling, a small portion of water should be running down the overflow from the small hose clamped onto the overflow This rinses the inside of the bowl, as well as helps-refill the bowl. Be sure that hose is directed inside the overflow tube. To see what the max water level in the bowl can be, add some water from a cup or glass. Once it's full you can keep adding and it won't get any higher. This will be the max level you can expect.

Bowel cleaning


Check the ports under the rim and make sure they are not clogged. To do this you can use a nail or pin to clean them out.
Right under the rim of the bowl are these ports that allow the water to flow into bowl in a turning motion to aid in flushing and cleaning wall's of the bowl.
Inside the tank check the fill tube and make sure it is connected from the fill valve to the over flow tube. Also check the fill level in the tank and make sure water is up to the line on the fill tube about 5/8" from top of tube.

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

Bath waste is being discharged through wc bowl. anyone help please?


obviously you have a blockage in your line

try to use a plunger to break up the blockage by plunging through the toilet
go under the house or outside and find a cleanout and see if sewage is backed up there when you open the cleanut the sewage will come rushing out
will have to rent a snake or call a plumber
