SOURCE: Slow Flushing mechanism

Check the angle stop at the wall ( valve) if it more then a few years old the rubber inside sticks try turning it off and on a few times. Well first just make sure its open all the way to start. If both of those do not work It might have a screen at the opening of the preeure mechanism...check that the was no line trash caught in it from turning the water on and off. If none of these things work let me know and we can get more technical in find out whats wrong...heck you could have just gotten a bad one. The Plumbing company I worked for when I lived in houston had the contract with them to do there warranty work and boy did we do a lot of it .

SOURCE: half flush doesn't stop running

Yes, If I remember correctly you need to replace the flush valves. I cant remember if there is just one or two valves but they need to be replaced. go to your nearest plumbing supply house (a home improvement store will not carry it) and get a new valve. This will fix your problem.

I have a leak coming through my ceiling from the ensuite toilet above. It is an ideal standard wall hung with concealed cistern behind tiles. There is no obvious access panel. The tiled wall is flush.


The flush control panel normally comes off. You can then hopefully see inside. You won't be able to see much though as the cistern will be in the way...

Places to look for leaks are:
Soil pipe to pan
Cistern to flush pipe
Flush pipe to pan
Cistern overflow.

Tip

FIXING A TOILET THAT WILL NOT FLUSH!!! a simple but very effective money saving...


This simple how to, is based upon most lever operated toilets, with the cistern mounted above the toilet bowl. The make and model of toilet used for this feature is of the following:
Toilet and internal syphon
DUDLEY ELITEDudley S7 Cascade syphon
Problem:
My toilet will not flush, but the ball float valve is working and there is water in the cistern; no leaks present and the flushing lever is not broken or disconnected, what do I do?
Answer:
first isolate the water to the toilet or the main water supply to the house. Bail out the water from the cistern using a small jug or cup, (or you can syphon the water manually using a hosepipe or similar pipe, a towel to cover your mouth, and either a bucket or the toilet bowl) and remove water from the bottom of the cistern with a sponge.


Changing the syphon in a toilet that is not close coupled is far easier as you do not need to remove the cistern from the wall!


Undo the lower of the two large nuts beneath the cistern using a large pipe wrench or pair of water pump pliers, now disconnect the flush pipe and push it to one side.
Place a bucket or bowl beneath the cistern and undo the Nut which is immediately below the cistern (syphon replacing nut), some water may be released by the syphon, take note of any washers that are removed as new ones need fitting when replacing the siphon.
Unhook the lift rod from the flushing lever and remove the syphon.


Inside the toilet syphon, there will be a small plastic piece of sheet called a diaphragm; you can fabricate a replacement using the plastic title cover on a DVD case. Cut this to the exact same size and shape as the original part, and fit this to where the original diaphragm was. This is your new replacement.


Refitting is a complete reversal of removal, be sure to fit any washers (preferably new ones) that you have taken out. Ensure everything is tight but do not over tighten before refilling the cistern

Water flow from cistern does not shut off after the toilet in flushed


You need to get inside the cistern and see which type of shut off device you have. It will either be a long armed ball float or a short armed bobbin type. Ensure the float has not come away from the arm and that the adjustment is correct.

the clear and the blue pipes control half and full flush. They should both be connected to the main cistern. The small button should give a half flush.

Weak dual flush does not empty the toilet bowl.


well, yes... but apart from providing you with a forum in which to vent your frustration I'm not sure how you think we might help. I have the same problem with a dual flush cistern, but in my case I know that the root of the problem lies in the fact that the soil pipe leading from the bowl has insufficient fall (because the previous owner of my house moved the toilet further from the down pipe). Maybe something like this is contributing to your problem too?

Does not flush completely. Works 2 out 3 times.


Needs new flushing mechanism. Remove Cistern, Remove flush siphon and either replace siphon washer or replace complete siphon.

The cistern lid is held down by the chrome assembly (which includes the two buttons that you press to make the toilet flush) sticking up in the middle of the lid. You need to unscrew that (anticlockwise) to be able to lift the lid off, to get to the inlet valve, etc.

If the water is running in very slowly, chances are high that the small screen filter under the inlet valve is partially blocked. Working inside the cistern, you need to unscrew the inlet valve assembly (noting the order in which the various parts come out!), then unscrew the cranked fitting just under that, to get the screen/filter.
