Usually, there is a diaphram located at the needle valve that can be removed and cleaned and or replaced. If you know you have grit in the water, then you are right, that will cause problems with the fill valve not fully closing.

After the tank fills on the toilet, every minute a bubble will float to surface coming from the re-fill line. I just put a new flapper due to old one was sticking open. No leaks, but wondering if the seal to the siphon is an issue.

I have a Sloan m101526 toilet tank and it's constantly making a running /hissing noise. At first it was just a drip noise then more then like a flowing noise.


Lift the top of and look. It will either be the flapper in the bottom is being held up by the chain or something, or the inlet valve is faulty. Flappers do wear out and warp. If you get 4 or 5 years you are lucky.

After typing this, you have a Flushmate in it. I would call a plumber!

When filling, the toilet makes a loud noise like a water buffalo dying and wont stop until I turn off the valve. whats the deal?


That miniature water buffalo may be living inside a clogged fill valve. It may be necessary to replace the valve to regain peace and quiet. If you do replace the fill valve, be sure to flush the water line first in case any debris is lingering.

Our Costco Water Ridge toilet won't flush unless we hold the button down for a while. Sometimes we have to do that twice.


You need to contact the manufacturer of the toilet. If it was recently purchased, there should be a warranty. Otherwise, they can probably tell you what parts are needed to repair it.

I have a push button flush on my toilet but the flush is getting less powerful and we have to wait ages before it will flush again despite the water level filling quickly????


Sounds like the syphon unit has scaled up. You can try flushing with a descaler fluid a couple of times to see if that will loosen the scale but otherwise replace the plastic syphon within the system. Cheap part, relatively easy fix if you know bit about plumbing. Confidence is the key.

Toilet leaks in front of it. have check the water lines to it and no leaks


The wax ring is leaking. Go to a hardware store and they should have one and explain how it works. You will need to pull the toilet though, to replace it.

Wont go off


-You're talking about water not car right...?
-Shut off main water line and remove the on/off valve, if lose or broken
screw that hold the washer or broken washer. Possibly fixable or just replace new one.
Then turn the main water back on again. You should be good to go.

Power outage how do i reset a moen digital thermostatic shower valve


If you're talking about the ioDigital Vertical Spa controller, mine never comes back up after a power failure (status LED off) until after I've unplugged and re-plugged the DATA cable. To do this you have to take the cover off the controller in the wall cavity by removing the four phillips #2 screws to expose the DATA connector inside. Then it's just like unplugging and replugging a telephone or ethernet cable.
