Commercial stool doesn't flush even with good water pressure

The water was shut off for 3 weeks and the extra lines were removed so that we could drain them and shut our warehouse down. We cut and capped the lines except for the bathrooms.
The water was never drained from any of the stools, urinals, or water fountains. When we turned the water back on the 2 water fountains, 2 urinals, 2 basins, and 2 stools will not flush even with good water presasure.
What is odd is that the 2 stools on the end of the water lines work great but nothing inbetween works. I have removed the hoses to the basins and removed a slug looking mess fromboth the hot water and cold water lines but water can't get past the rest of what ever is in the lines.
My main concern it getting the stools to flush and and how to disassemble the stools and the urinal.

It seems like water pressure is not sufficient. Make sure that water line is of provided size.

Remove the tank and flush it out with denatured alcohol. Shake it up really good than drain tank and let it dry. Next remove the fuel shut off valve out of the tank and clean screen with air pressure. Also remove entire fuel line up to banjo fitting on carb. Blow the line out with air pressure than spray a good amount of carb cleaner thru line and blow out line again. If carb is new id take it off and remove fuel bowl and see what is in bottom, dirt, water or rust. Depending on how severe it is you may have to rebuild carb using carb dip tank and blowing out every hole you can find. It sounds like the fuel screens in the fuel shut off and fuel line are plugged up.

Where can i purchase the rubber treads for the steps on a cosco step stool

I'm guessing this is an older stool you have that you need to repair. the model number you provided doesn't ring any bells at Cosco.

Give them a call or send them an email and see if they can help. You're other choice is to look at a hardware store for something to use to replace the worn treads. Good luck.

After the toilet is flushed and the water in the tank drops the floats drops but even with additional downward pressure water doesn't fill up the tank in earnest.

ok...first turn off the water supply at the shuttoff valve under the tank(presuming you have one if not shut the water off some how) disconnect the supply line from the flote valve and hold it into a 5 gal bucket while you turn the water back on slowly. if you are getting good pressure from the supply line then the flote valve is bad or has been obstructed by foreign matter.

My 1/2 hp flowtec pump keeps acting up worked great for 2 weeks Then I replaced pressure switch worked for 3 days then changed plastic hose to switch worked for 1/2 a day. Will not shut off

Three things to check
1. There may be getting sediment in the water line to switch. Flush the well tank at the boiler drain to see how much sediment (if any) comes out. Flush well if heavy sediment and call Well company.
2. Make sure the check valve is OK also.
3. If the impeller is bad on the pump it will not build pressure and keep running.
4. The well may be going bad, low volume. Call well company.

After flush tank refills very slowly---is there a restictor that can be removed ..what color is it tell me what to do

probably not. your valve is corroded or stopped up. It pretty easy to change and you can buy one at most hardware stores.
(1) turn the water off to the stool
(2) unscrew the inlet hose coming from the wall to the stool valve (under the tank usually on the left)
(3) unscrew the big plastic nut holding the valve to the tank (the nut is under the tank) ( be sure to flush the stool and get as much water out of the tank before unscrewing the nut. Get a large towel or bowl as you will have some water leak from the tank when you pull the valve out.
(4) disconnect the overflow line coming from the valve to the center line in the tank. (this is just usually a little rubber hose about 1/4" around. You are ready to go get another valve. You might take the old one with you.

Sloan valve not flushing correctly. when I flush the toilet it seems like there's not enough pressure to even clear the bowl. I've changed the diaphram, vacuum breaker and bowl but nothing seem to work. I...

You have a choice of either running a 1" line to supply the valve, or installing a booster pump to increase your system pressure. Or, you can install a regular tank type toilet with a pressure vessel in the tank. This is a code approved toilet for commercial applications.

I would change the toilet as it probably presents the least amount of labor in changing the piping.

After a flush the bowl slowly empties over about 10-15 minutes

If bowl is emptying, the most common cause is a crack in the bowl. I have however seen a string get hung in the throat and siphon the water out slowly. May want to pull stool and take a good look. Hope this helps.

Pump spinning but not getting up to speed then shuts off

You have a pressurized system using a pressure tank.This is a case of an air logged pressure tank. Meaning there is more air than water in the pressure tank. The pressure tank must hold 2/3 water and 1/3 air of its total volume. Installed at the tank is the air volume control to take care of this proportion. Should the air volume control malfunction or becomes defective, the air-water ratio is affected. And then,
the pressure tank becomes either air logged or water
1. Shut the power off, and open the discharge line
gate valve to flush the water in the pipe lines.
2. Open the drain plug of the pressure tank to empty
all the water at the pressure tank.
3. Close the drain plug, and put the power on.
4. Start the pump, and set the flow control valve 1/4
5. The pump will normally run.

Toilet flushes weakly and two times

After working for ROTO-ROOTER for 20 + years, I have come across this problem more than twice. There are many problems that can be included, but let's start with the most simple and go from there. Step 1... Check your roof vent to see if it is obstructed with debris, such as birds nest, frozen ice, dead animal...etc..... To check this you must go onto the roof and find the sewer vent(it is not hard to find as it smells like sewer). Visually look into the vent even using a flashlight to make sure there is nothing obstructing the vent pipe. certain things can clog your vent such as Debris,Birbs Nest, Ice, dead animal,Etc..A drain line needs a air vent so water can flow....If nothing is visually seen , have someone flush the stool. If you cannot see any obstructions and HEAR THE FLUSH, Your Vent is okay. Check out plumbing and venting on the internet for more reference. If this is not your problem then you must pull the stool and see if there is an object stuck in the toilet......Comb, toothbrush, Etc... The best way is to pull the stool from the floor and look from the bottom of the toilet to see if there is an object stuck inside the stool.Turn off the water supply and disconnect it from the tank. Go to your local hardware store and buy 2 wax rings with plastic flanges and a set of flange bolts(these are cheap and can be returned if not used).Turn off the water supply to the toilet tank and flush it to drain all the water from the tank and the stool. You can use a shop vac or an old towel to remove the water. After removing the stool, lay it on its side and look from the bottom to see if there are any obstructions. You may need a mirror and flashlight to see inside the gooseneck of the stool. If you cannot see any obstructions, you can try to dump a 5 gallon bucket of water through the bottom of the stool to push the object out the way it entered. NOTE: When reinstalli8ng the stool, be careful not to over-tighten the floor flange bolts as you might crack the toilet......Joe

American Standard Elongated toilet bowl water level slowly drops

The tank holding the proper amount of water is a good sign. The inside of the stool is like the GOOSE NECK under you sink. It always holds water. This may sound like a bit of a hassle to do but if all 3 toilets are identical, here is what you can try if you are a bit handy. Go to the hardware store and purchase 4 toilet wax rings with a plastic flange and a few sets of toilet floor flange bolts(they are cheap and you can always return if not used, as It is better to have xtra parts on hand). Turn off the water supply to the "Mystery Toilet". Leave the tank and everything connected to the stool. Flush the toilet and remove all excess water from the tank and bowl. This can be done with a shop vac, sponge or towel. Disconnect the water supply to the tank. Remove the bolts holding the stool to the floor and carefully remove toilet. Scrap off all the old wax from the floor flange and bottom of stool. Now go and repeat this proceedure to one of the toilets that is working properly. In other words Switch the "Mystery Toilet" with a "Working Toilet" and see how they react. If the working toilet does it in the same bathroom and the "Mystery Toilet" does not do it in the other bathroom then you probably have a VENTING PROBLEM. If the "Mysery Toilet" Does it in the other bathroom then you most likely have a Defective Toilet. This Job is best done by 2 people, as it can sometimes be challenging to center the new wax ring on the toilet flange. Reconnect to the floor and reconnect water supply to the tanks. DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN BOLTS to the floor flange as you may crack the toilet. All drain lines must be vented properly for water to flow. If you are curious check out drain venting on the internet. Also, sometimes a vent can become obstructed with debris, ice, bird nest, etc.. I would 1st check the vent on the roof visually and then have someone flush and listen. If you believe the vent is clear....Then do the toilet switch and go from there.....Hope this helps and Happy Holidays....Joe
