Porcher flushing mechanism

I have a porcher madison system approx 11 yr old. I need to change the flush seal washer but the mechanism is different to the one pictured on the maintainance guide that came with the unit. I have got to the overflow guide tube but cannot remove it. I have tried tunning both ways to no avail. There is a red bar with two holes in it to the left side of theover flow tube. Is this a lock mechanism?

    I have solved the problem. I made a spanner, that engauged the two holes, with a long handle as thebar is at the internal base of the system. With this I turned the bar anti clockwise which released the the over flow tube so I could change the seal. This fixed the problem. Thanks to those who tried to help, David

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: I cant get to the washer to change it

Ok is this a standard toilet where the water reservoir tank is just bolted to the bowl with 2 or 3 bolts and is removed separately or is this an older style where the tank is elevated and connected by a long tube....at any rate...the flush assembly...usually just has the one large plastic or metal nut that retains the flush valve assembly....they get stuck in place afters a few years and just need a little coaxing...and have been APT/Home maintenance industry for 35 years in USA...I have never had a flush valve that needed to be unscrewed but that doesn't mean it isn't possible...so if I were a guessing man which I am generally not (I prefer to know exactly what I am talking about) just like I know that 99 percent of all threaded material in the USA requires them to be removed in a counterclockwise direction...

I hope this helps...if this is a different device altogether...maybe you could send a picture ....good luck....thanks for rating my effort.....the Fang.

SOURCE: valve to stop water from running

IF YOU HAVE A FLUIDMASTER BALLCOCK,AND IF THE WATER IS CONTINUING TO RUN ,YOU NEED TO ADJUST THE WATER LEVEL,MOST OS THE TIME ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS OPEN THE TANK LID AND ON THE LEFT SIDE YOU'LL SEE THE BALLCOCK,AT THE TOP IT MIGHT HAVE A BLACK PIECE THAT YOU CAN SLIDE UP AND DOWN TO ADJUST THE WATER LEVEL,OR SOME HAVE A PIECE THAT LOOKS LIKE YOU CAN USE A PHILLIPS HEADS SCREWDRIVER,ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS TURN IT A HALF OF TURN EACH TIME UNTIL THE WATER STOPS GOING INTO THE OVERFLOW TUBE ,WHICH IS USUALLY LOCATED IN THE CENTER OF THE TANK AND IT WILLBE 1INCH ROUND ,IT ALSO WILL HAVE YOUR FLAPPER OR BALL CONNECTER TO IT.

SOURCE: After flushing, water level in bowl fills and then slowly drops.

Check to be sure small tube is flowing inside the ovefow tube. This is the water that flushes the rim holes, and refills the bowl. If you don't have flow clean or replace the float valve.

Where can I get a Porcher L'Expression flush valve gasket?


I was in the same situation. Cost me $2.38 to fix. Ordered 12" x 12" rubber sheet from Sustainable Supply and made my own flush valve. Easier than I imagined. All I did was trace the old flush valve on to the sheet with a Sharpie and cut it out with a pair of scissors. Yep, it was that easy. I ordered the 1/32" sheet and it worked on the first try. I would order the 2/32" next time because my handmade flush valve is a little thinner than the original; however, it works perfectly. I was shocked. I had searched the Internet and called all places I found and then decided to give it a go on my own. Here are the specs....it works.

How do I remove the flush mechanism to enable removal of the cistern from the bowl?


You don't need to just undo the two nuts under the bolts in the tank. there is a rubber seal between the tnk and bowl and the whole thing will just lift up

I suppose you're talking about a toilet. One likely issue is the flapper valve ( if this has one). If no flapper then check whatever sealing mechanism is used to prevent water from entering the bowl when idle. Clean the sealing surfaces good. Make certain they are properly aligned.

I have a 2002 ford focus. two weeks ago after a oil change at a quick-lube joint. i noticed a oil leak on driveway. took it to my mechanic and he replaced valve cover gaskets and oil switch. i noticed...


if the place where you had the oil changed used a oil flush pressure system they could of damaged the seal as they not supposed to have that amount of pressure on them, this would damage all or most of the oil seals. a good oil change is were they dont use one of these systems they cause more problems over time. if you do an oil change its best to do it your self or at a garage you trust. and ask them to add flush cleaner this is a substance you add to the oil and run for 15 min in the engine and then do the oil change, you dont always need to use a flush only if there is a build up of oil carbon in the engine. some build up is normal but if you change the oil regular you don't need to flush as its only old oil that needs changing and flushing. hope this helps

It won't drain? Is the tank draining? Is the water turned off? Or is it just plugged up?

2005 Corolla LE when to flush coolant and change hoses, thermosta


Change the thermostat and the fluid, that is more than enough. The hoses should be replaced if they are soft or leaking.  I'm presuming your car has 100k+ miles.  so also change the belts.
