Sounds like to much water pressure.  Try turning the shut off valve off.  Flush the toilet.  Then slowly turn the valve back on until it makes the noise again.  When the noise is heard, turn the valve back a little bit untill the sound stops.

What causes a loud gurgle after flush?


If the flapper does not seat correctly and completely, refill water flows into the bowl and causes a "false flush" and the loud gurgle. You can demonstrate this by holding the flush handle depressed after a normal flush. Also, there may not be sufficient slack in the flapper chain to allow it to seat correctly.

If the flush valves were installed exactly according to the instructions, they should work perfectly and can be excluded as a source of the problem.

Every time we flush the toilet it makes a screeching sound, like something is about to explode, any ideas on how to make it stop?


sounds like the valve is making the noise. You will need to replace it to stop the sound. The valve is the part of the stool that is located in the tank, the water supply connects to the bottom of it, and it lets the water refill the tank until the float turns it off.

Replaced the seals because it was running. Water is still leaking from the tank somewhere so it keeps refilling....it's constantly leaking and refilling. how can I repair this.


You say you have replaced seals. I assume that you are refering to the flaper valve that controls dumping water from tank to bowl to flush. To make sure you have a good seal put a dozen or so drops of food coloring directly into tank when it's full and observe for a hour or so to see if water in bowl is discoloring. If it is then you are still leaking there. You can shut off water supply off or flush toilet and manually hold flush valve closed. Check to see if there are any rough spots on flapper seal that could stop flapper from sealing good. If you find rough spot then make sure the surface is dry and sand lightly with medium grit sandpaper.120 grit or finer.
One other thing to check is if your toilet has the plastic or rubber tube that goes from the flush valve into the overflow. Make sure that this tube does not set below water level in tank when it is full as this can create a suction or syphon,
Hope this helps you. Thanks

Toilets are refilling between flushes


Replace the flappers, and clean around the flapper seat.

Make sure the water level is 1/2 " below the large vertical tube by either bending the float rod down or adjust the skinny silver rod on a Fluidmaster unit.

When you flush, the bowl refills and then suddenly empties 90% of the refilled water. Why? This is a toto toilet and this happens almost all the time now.


it sounds like it is not flushing completely at first and then releases and the suction is pulling water out of the bowl. Could be a venting issue or a clog issue that is hindering the proper flushing of the toilet.

My dual flush toilet fills up slowly how do i fix


Lift the tank lid off, place it somewhere safe for a moment, and look at what happens: If you're talking about jiggling the handle to get the tank to start to fill with water, then it sounds like the chain or rope is out of adjustment. It can't be TOO TIGHT or the water will leak past your flapper (will cause your dripping noise, tank water level will leak down, causing constant refills), and it cant be TOO LOOSE or the toilet won't flush correctly. Since you didn't mention trouble flushing the toilet, I think that it may be a little too TIGHT. When you jiggle the flush lever-it is supposed to pull a chain or cable to open the flapper at the bottom of the tank. Flush the tank and watch what happens-all the way through to refilling the tank with water and shutting off the water refill valve-Does the flapper get stuck on the chain or something? It is supposed to fall back down to allow the tank to refill after flushing out your toilet. Does the chain look very loose? The dripping sound you described indicates that the flapper is not sealing 100%. The flapper is very easy to replace, you just have to get the adjustment set for when you flush the toilet how sensitive you need it. You amy have to play with it a little bit before you get the adjustment correct.

Hope this helps!

Bowl will not fill.


There is usually a small tube on the top of the ballcock or the fill valve in the toilet tank. The tube should be clipped to the top of the flush valve pipe so that the water will flow into it. Should the small tube become loose and fall off of the clip, the refill water will not make it back into the bowl.
