How does the cistern fit onto the toilet and connect to the water outlet. Does it got onto the toilet seat if so how do you connect the water supply?


normally the cistern is mounted to the wall and the pipe to the bowl (pan) is just connected by a rubber grommet at the pan inlet and a threaded nut that compresses a rubber ring in the cistern end
water supply is via a hose from the isolator tap next to the an up to the pipe under the cistern

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

Adjust water level in in-wall Italian toilet cistern


It could be your flushing mechanism inside the tank that is letting the water in even after the flush. First flush and watch the bottom mechanism whether it blocks completely when water is full in the tank at set level and no more water flows.

The Rialto toilet makes it very difficult to replace the seat as you cannot access the wing nuts which in a moment of engineering genius you put inside the bowl I have already purchased a French seat to...


You should be able to remove the tank lid, reach into the cistern and find submerged at the bottom towards the front of the toilet the plastic wing nuts, hold onto these while tightening the plastic bolt from the top.

I have a Kohler toilet with a similar design, not sure if it is this exact model but they look very similar so I hope this works for you.

I have a euro mono back to wall toilet and teh toilet seat has come loose. I have detached the seatgfrom its fixings but cannot see how to ighten the fixing as the screw is not visible nor accessible


I know its a long time since this question was posted but I had the same issue and have just fixed it. Remove the toilet seat by pushing in each of the two release buttons on the hinges, then lift. Where the hinges located are two circlular receivers, both have a metal cap that can be removed using a small flat head screwdriver or similar. This reveals a large cross-head bolt head on each which you can tighten. I suggest nipping them up not overtightening just in case you damage the bowl. At least once you know where they are you can re-tighten another day! Then reassemble (remembering to put the caps back on first)... I hope this helps someone - I spent ages looking for the answer on the internet only to find it all out myself. Good luck...

I have a toilet which is a one peice. The toilet seat has come loose and the bolts have dropped to the floor. I can not fit the seat back as the pieces that i would use to tighten the seat are on the floor...


In no case would you ever have to pull a toilet to get to seat bolts.My guess is if you take the tank lid off and look inside there youll see the bolts . If not you can buy another toilet seat with new bolts or just get the bolts to fit your seat and tighten it down.Forget about the old bolts unless they become a problem with the flushing of the toilet. Hope this helps

Unable to fit a toilet seat


Hi neenyc02.

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: The cistern to your toilet is behind a wall. and you can't fit a new seat

I'm having trouble visuallising your problem. For the average toilet there are only two sizes, round front and elongated. Compost and other special types are usually made to accept one or the other. If we're talking about a small marine tupe or such it would still install very much the same way. If you could upload some clear pictures of your problem it would help a great deal. In any case you will need access to the bolt holes (top & bottom).
