    Holds the water. It is essentially the part that keeps everything moving or still.

SOURCE: FLUSHMATE TOILET BOWL WON'T HOLD WATER

The Flushmate system won't cause or contribute to water draining or leaking from the bowl.

Negative back-pressure in your drain/waste/vent piping could be siphoning the water out or you may have a crack in the bottom of the bowl or trapway that's allowing the water to leak out.

If the floor under the toilet (actually underneath it) or around the edge where it's caulked to the floor is wet, your bowl may be cracked. If not, your plumbing system may be siphoning the water.

Either way, you can exclude the Flushmate from the equation and focus on the porcelain fixture and your drain/waste/vent system.

Hope this helps.

Have you tried the "800" number on the tank label or visited the Flushmate Web site?

Could be related to the plumbing or the Flushmate. Technical support should be able to help you pinpoint the cause and, if it's Flushmate-related and under warranty, provide a resolution.

Good luck!

How do I lower the water level in the toilet bowl of a Slone Flushmate? It keeps getting higher, little by little after each flush.


The flush valve may be defective but some tinkering with the refill level setting may work.

My flushmate toilet got clogged. I have unstopped the clog, but it won't flush. The flushing process works, but the water isn't pushed down the drain.


My flushmate toilet was stopped up after a bm.

Because I could not get to it right away, I let it

sit for several days. Tried calling the Flushmate

800 number. They don\'t work on weekends and

it was Saturday. What to do? Read the info on

the internet but could not find solution. However

first I shut off intake water valve required for any service

performed. Did that. Got a large plastic spoon.

Fashioned a container out of supermarket paper

bag cut in half. Used bottom half and inserted it

inside double Safeway plastic bags. Scooped out

the toilet paper and feces into bag. Found most

of feces had disintegrated in the toilet coloring

water dark brown. That was a good sign. Less

solid matter to flush. Tossed bag into garbage.

Flushed the toilet and it worked perfectly. This

method works for stopped toilet only. If problem

is in the sewer line, you need another method.

Flushmate 503 sprays water out of top of tank, apparently coming for under the flushmate system. The valve doesn't seem to leak. Iahve pressure tested it.


Turn off the water supply at the wall, flush the toilet to relieve the pressure inside the Flushmate, and call Flushmate Consumer Services at 800-533-3460 M-F, 8:00 - 4:30 ET.

They'll need to know the serial number and approximate date of installation of the Flushmate.

You could alos fill out a confidential "contact" form on the contact page of the Web site, www.flushmate.com.

If yu need to use the toilet in the meantime, you can "bucket flush" it by pouring 2 to 3 gallons of water into the bowl. This will generate a standard siphonic flush and won't give you the pressureized extractiopn but it will keep the toilet usable until a Flushmate support tech can diagnose the issue and provide a resolution.

Good luck!

Just hooked up new pressure asist tank & bowl,turned on water to it,and it want flush.what i mean about want flush, is it will flush but water does'nt go down,as if it's not staying open long enough.


Sounds like you have a clogged drainline or vent-stack. Fill a large bucket with about three gallons of water and dump it quickly into the bowl. If the drainline/vent is clear, the toilet will "flush" like a gravity toilet and the water will drain from the bowl almost as fast as you can pour it in.

If the water level in the bowl slowly rises (as if it's about to overflow) and then slowly drains, you have a clog somewhere.

All toilets, regardless of their flushing mechanism, require a clear, unoibstructed drain/waste/vent system to extract waste.

If the toilet "flushes" with the bucket of water, you may want to call Flushmate tech support (the number is on top of the tank) or check out the installation and troubleshooting videos at howto.flushmate.com.

Hope this helps.

Sloan Flushmate M-101526-F3-Constant Filling


There is a lifetime warranty on the tank and a ten year warranty on parts. Call flushmate and ask. they will not tell you otherwise.

If you use any chemicals in the tank it will void the warranty.
