Question about Porcher Home
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?

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.

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.

Testimonial: "The reply didn't describe what I found inside the tank completely accurately, but with what was said (and with a flashlight) I was able to fix it. THX"
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.
