SOURCE: The flush valve does stay open long enough after flushing

Which style of flush valve do you have? If it is the dual-flush option (solids/liquids) I do not know how to adjust those. If you have a traditional style, then the flapper or ball is closing too soon. You need to adjust the guide arm (flush ball) higher or shorten the chain between the flapper and the handle. Adjust this carefully or you will have it fail to seat and the toilet will constantly run.

I hope this helps.

SOURCE: Toilet isn't siphoning fast enough. The water

take the uper cover fo the toilet. check for the chain, that chain goes to the balon with air that usualy goes up when water is filling in and stop the water.

so, check for that chain to be long enough (it can be regulated ussually). the problem relies that id the chain is too short the reservoir or tank of water cannot fill up to a 100% to siphoning fast enough.

Loosen the nut that holds it in. The nut is inside the tank and is left hand threads. Or it may need a new one if any of the plastic is broken or cracked.

most modern flappers(what you call a canister float if i understand you correctly) have some type of adjustment feature which controls this.(like maybe rotating the flapper one way or the other) the old fashioned way was to take up the slack in the chain attached to the flapper so that when someone pushes the handle the flapper is pulled higher. make & model # or a pic would help me say w/certainty how yours works. just text me here if you need anything else and good luck:)

Why would the water level be low in one of my toilets?


Th problem is not in the flushing handle. You have a problem in the out take. Chances are there is something in the trap as it is taking the waste out OR your flapper is closing up too fast in the tank thus not allowing enough water into the bowl.

Flapper valve closes too quickly


Fill the breather hole (1/8" hole) inside the flapper.This is designed to let air out so the flapper will sink. Now it floats longer letting in more water. 25%percent more in my case.

Taking the top of the tank off wont hurt anything but the assembly it might A few things to check look in the tank make sure nothing is blocking the flapper at the bottom thats the thing that lets the water drain into the bowl if it is clear check make sure the chain or line that connects the flush handle to the flapper is not kinked causing it to hold the flap up enough to let the water drain. If these are ok sometimes sediments will make the float device the thing that goes up and down when the water goes out or fills, whether its a ball or a canister type it may stick reach in and lift the floater if the water stops then adjust the floater some have a screw on the canisters to adjust some an arm some the whole mechanism shaft screws up and down to adjust if its the ball hold the metal arm firm next to the base and bend it slightly down on the other end so the ball goes further into the water so when you release it lifts it up better don't bend to much check and bend more if you need to. If its a ball make sure water is not getting into it by feeling if so replace it. The canister you want to adjust it so it goes down some so the water will push it up more and try to stop it. If moving it by hand did not fix the problem dont use these methods replace the whole thing for around $20 just turn the water off flush the tank get all the excess water out and go to town its not hard the package should help with directions make sure you have pipe tape and if you don't know about the tape ask the hardware dealer to explain how it goes on just a couple wraps. The hardware store can help you pick the one you need tell them what yours looks like and they can help find a replacement.

After the installment when you flush the water will flush four(4) times in the bowl while the tank water is raiseing to the float level. Is this normal.


Most people have trouble with the flapper falling too fast and they get one with a float on it or one that drains water on the counterweight to keep it up long enough. It sounds like yours stays open too long. Get a flapper that will fall fast without any gimmicks on it. the shorter the chain is to the flush handle the better too.

I seem to have o flush at least 2 times. is there any adjustment to use more water flow?


I don't know what kind of flush mechanism you have, but if your toilet happens to have a flapper (that's the valve at the bottom of the tank that you lift when you flush) that has a hole in the side of it, you can replace it with a flapper that has no hole. The apparent design intention of these flappers with holes in them is to allow about half of the tank to be used when you depress the handle briefly, and they require you to hold the handle down for a few seconds if you want to use the hole tank. Many toilets have other means to accomplish the same thing. You might try watching the water in the tank when you flush. If only about half of it gets used, it will certainly work to just hold the handle longer to get a complete flush. good luck, Al K

Flush stops too soon


If this is a standard toilet, take the lid off the tank (the back part) and adjust the length of chain that runs from the flush handle rod down to the flush flapper. Usually if the chain is too long it will stop flushin too soon. It also could be that the rubber flapper valve in the bottom of the tank is worn out and needs replaced. (any hardware store).

I have worked on these for many years. The flapper that's attached to the chain and handle, sometimes drops to soon before the tank gets to fill up enough to flush completely. If the flapper has not been changed for some time, it would be a good time now. I wouldn't change out the toilet unless it is cracked. This is a well made one, and I would want to keep it.

An old eljer toilet with the drop ball and brass guides. I cannot get the ball to seal well. What can it be?


I think I have a similar toilet--I found at Lowes a new "drop ball" that seals the hole in the tank. You're drop ball might be disintegrating from the hard water in the tank. Take the tank cover off and shut off the water before flushing the toilet. Once it's flushed pull up the drop ball. Feel if it's still solid or not. It is easily removed by unscrewing it from the rest of the assembly connecting to the flushing handle. Unfortunately for me, the one they had at Lowes was slightly different in shape than the one I had, so I had to return it and deal with the older one. good luck!
