1 Answer

I have a manual flushometer by sloan. It is a royal type, and when the unit is flushed water is leaking from the spud coupling where it connects to the porcelain bowl. I suspected the spud coupling was loose and gave it a 1/4 turn only to find that more water was leaking from the coupling. Should I order a new spud coupling and the rubber gasket flange etc... or am I missing something I should be trying first?

If a leak can't be repaired by tightening, you can try taking it apart fully and seeing it anything is twisted or perished. Best way though for trouble free use and peace of mind is a new coupling.

SOURCE: american standard cadet 3 leaking around seal

get a new filler assembly. the water in the tank is heavy enough to close the seal completely. or the rubber seal is not making contact. thats' why the leak.
change the whole assemble ususally correct the problem.
adjuste the flow to about 1/4 to 1/3 under the over flow. if that still don't give you the pressure. you ca adjust the flow tube to 1/5 under the cover. that is the max.

SOURCE: Leak between tank and bowl on Eljer 150-403

hi , the top of the bolt has a square shaft and slots in a grooved metal bracket , Try pulling down on the wingnut as you tighten , you should feel it slot in, once its semmi tight i shouldnt spin , If its been leaking then maybe its sludged up so you should take the cistern off alltogether and reset the rubber ring gasket , that way you can tape the bolt down with gaffa tape to aid reassembly,

SOURCE: cadet 3 round bowl toilet not flushing all from bowl

You are probably correct, the water level needs to be raised. There are many different toilet tank systems, but all have some way to control the water level in the tank. Let me know if you need help figuring it out...

P.S. You'll have to take the lid off the tank, first...pardon me if that is too obvious

SOURCE: commercial tankless toilet won't flush

There is a screw adjustment that basically allows so much water by then the valve shuts off. Located under the cover. If you already tried adjusting this then replace the diaphram. Plumbing shops will have the kits. Pretty simple to fix. Good Luck have a Great Day. Please give a 4 THUMBS UP if this free answer was helpful. THANKS

Try checking the water pressure. If it has dropped too low then the valve will never re-seat properly. Ideally over 90 psi.

Not enough water ,need flush it 3 time in regal flusometer

the right side where water comes to it through wall there is a cap that can be taken off it covers the shut off valve that takes a flat head screw diver to shut off or open up all the wall. check and make sue it is all the way open.

If it is shut it off and the cap on top where the flush handle is remove it once water is turned off and check it out. the kits to rebuild one it should be a 37-a or 36-a to replace this part if that is it.

These are a couple of thing's to check

I have a Sloan urinal that will not stop flushing. I have rebuilt it with a total rebuild kit. I cleaned the inside of all surfaces and I flushed the entire piping system to no avail. It will not stop...

The rubber vacuum relief needs to also be changed if you have not. It is located in the tube that runs down to the urinal from under the flush valve. The handle could be hanging up.....or there could still be sediment stopping the diaphragm from working properly.

Urinal will flush, but will not stop.

You will need a sloan rebuild kit. They are inexpensive, and fairly easy to install. Check Sloan's website, or a plumbing supply house for the rebuild kit. You do not have to shut water off to the entire building to do this work. You will notice a chrome cover on the front portion of the line coming out from the wall. Remove this cover, and you will find a flat head screw. Turn the screw clockwise, and this will shut the flow of water off that is going to the area you will need to work on. The rebuild kit will come with instructions on the install. Again, it is relatively easy to replace. Just make sure you shut the water off, or BIG SURPRISES in your future.
