SOURCE: New American Standard Flowise toilet won't flush

You have a sewer issue....it is entirely possible for other things to cause the toilet to loose water as they drain....but only if there is a sewer problem.....that is why there is an air gap between the toilet and the tank...(the trap) now I have been in this industry 35 years and the jet you speak of is in the bottom of the toilet that directs and forces flow down and out of the bowl as do the many small holes on the underside of the bowl lip ( I suspect ...as I have seen it MANY MANY time in the paste) that your old bowl may have had lots of calcium or lime build up (using lime a away occasionally helps) in the holes under the lip as well as other places...which reduces water flow and there by reduces pressure......but what you are describing is definitely sewer related....other water sources causing water to drain...bubbles...etc..I had a similar problem that occurred about once every 2 years in one of my homes...I had a tree root growing into my sewer line ...it would flush but on occasion...debris would get caught and a good plunging would help...but eventually...(twice) I had to rent a 3/4 inch snake from Time Rental...with a cutter head on it and remove the problem. Now your problem sounds exactly like an air gap problem...in that an overflow or something related is causing a vacuum assist when large amounts of water are drained...(ie...tub...washer...).as this happens the force the water carries and the lack of access to air in the flow causes vacuum "tugs" on other water sources attached to the sewer....take of your clean-out cover (usually in the back of the house and if you see water standing in it ....sewer problem....also you can have someone flush the toilet and eyeball the sewer/overflow...to see how it drains.

I hope this helps....good luck...thank you for rating my effort...the Fang.

SOURCE: Toto Toilet - no water flow to refill tank after flush

Remove the tank lid and look at the fill valve. Is it a yellow valve?
This fill valve is common on the Toto Toilets and can easliy plug with debrie.

They can be disassmbled and cleaned. however, I usually just replace the valve with Fluid Master Fill valve.
You will also want to check the water coming into the toilet by turning off the water that supplies the toilet and disconnecting the water supply line. After removing the water supply line turn on the water at the valve to make sure that the water is flowing properly. Check the supply line also to make sure it is not plugged.
Be sure and place a small container to catch the water that will come from the valve. A towell will also help from making too much of a mess.
If the Supply line and the valve are clear the problem is in the fill valve.
The G-Max system denotes the Flushiing system which is a 3" flapper that allows the water from the tank to flow into the bowl quicker.
Good Toilets!

SOURCE: Water comes from bottom of tank when commode is

Ok the toilets work is that the tank reservoir is where your fresh water....is stored....and the flush valve...(if you take the tank lid off you will see that the handle is either connected to a chain or uses a lever to lift something called a flapper....it is usually black but it can be gray..or blue...also there is a flash valve that is a long tube and a round bottom with a rubber gasket...that seals the flush water into the tank...reventing it from entering the bowl.......when you lift the handle water dumps from the tank...into a s-shape tunnel called a trap...(this is in place to prevent sewer gases from entering the house the water sits in the bottom of the trap acting as a seal against smells...gas...etc...from the sewer line....Now your tank is mounted to the bowl by (2 or 3) bolts that you can see and access from inside the tank...however the person doing this will have to also reach under the toilet where the tank mounts to the bowl and hold a pair of pliers or a crescent wrench on the nuts which hold the tank in place.....after these are removed...the tank will lift off of the bowl.(now obviously the water has to be shut off and be disconnected from the tank....when the tank is lifted ...a small amount of water may spill out ...but it is clean water...so no worries....since the tank and the bowl are made of porcelain they obviously would not seal just sitting on top of each other so the tank...has the bottom part of the flush assembly which is mounted to the tank by way of a large plastic nut extends out of the bottom opf the tank 2-3 inches......around this is another black or gray about 3-5 inches in diameter...and costs less than $5 at Home Depot.....change this out, reassemble and your back in business. Be advised that the flapper in the bottom of the tank...if you ever have to change it out and the tank gasket you are going to change out (after a long period of use or just time and deterioration)...leave black residue on your hands...if you handle them...but it is safe and easily washed off...it just may freak.. a layperson out....so one may want to use some gloves they can toss afterwards....Any other questions....and I can absolutely answer them in regards to toilets...as i have repaired and or replaced 2500 - 3000 in my 35 years in the apt/home maintenance industry.

I hope this helps.....thank you for rating my effort...and good luck....tha Fang.

My geberit model number 131.028 dual flush won't shut off with water and leaks into the toilet bowl


How old? Who installed? Any warranty? I'd follow that route first.
If not warranty I'd try to get the installer to be interested. Perhaps he will have a "red face" an help out.

Older Eljer toilets are good for this and yes you need to replace the complete flush valve assembly. I would recommend putting in a fluid master system as they in my opinion are the best. Their kits come complete with everything you need to do the job and provide excellent instructions and if that is not good they have videos on their web site. The site is slow to load but worth waiting for.

Toilet flushes fine but when the tank has filled it seems like the float ball keeps bobbing up and down letting more water or air into the tank. it will do this 5/6 times then quits. its almost like it is...


The ball float follows the tank water level, and repeated cycles of the float dropping and opening the fill valve would likely reflect a leak in the flush valve. You could try adjusting the float arm downward so that it will respond to a lower water level. Try turning off the supply valve, flushing it and listen for water leaking past the flush valve after it closes. If it does, replace the flapper or adjust the chain.

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!

Have a vitra dual flush toilet we have no water pressure when you flush the toilet


check to make sure the water level in your tank is sufficient, if not you'll need to ajust your float. otherwise your flapper is shutting too soon, you'll need to shut the water valve off and flush untill the water in the tank is gone, letting air back under the flapper slowing it's desent when submerged. then turn the water back on. if the problem continues repace the flapper.
