    The Toto Drake was extended to 30 seconds before a normal fillup in fast flow. Took the G-max out. Cleaned the side cup out but found no washer that was accesable. Had difficulty putting the white ajestment clip in. The flush and fill seem to be normal know.

    Thank you.

    I've got the same problem. My toilet is a Toto, with elongated bowl (unknown model though) It's two years old. The flapper is red and the refill valve is white on top (Korky)



    Both the tank and bowl refill ok, but there is a delay in the water turning on after a flush. The delay seems to be getting longer and longer with time. This has been going on for the last several months.



    I've made sure the water supply line is open all the way-not sure what else to do?

I am not a plumber but stumbled across the solution on my own. While watching the float during the flush cycle, it was obvious that it was very slow in moving downward along with the water level in the tank. The problem was that the small opening in the float chamber was partially clogged. Using just my fingers, I reached under the float chamber and cleaned off any debris that was blocking the opening underneath the float chamber. Put the float back on, and instantly the problem was solved. The tank fill started immediately after I flushed.

    I have a very new toto and some repairs to the water system in my building has been throwing debris down the line. My problem was the same as above with the same solution, but I would only add a couple clarification notes as I am not a plumber either and I need more generic explanation of the components.

    1 first remove the plastic cover (mine's blue) on the filler valve on the left hand side of the tank. This is done but squeezing the tabs on either side on it and gently pulling up.

    2 remove the float. This is done by once again squeezing the plastic at the pivot point on the valve. The float should just out.

    3 clean the float reservoir including the little plastic drain valve at the bottom. Mine is a little plastic ball that had all kinds of pipe crud in and around it. It looks as though this float is designed so that you can have all kinds of delay options based on the valve at the bottom.

    4 put your float back on by once again squeezing the assembly at the pivot point

    5 put the cover back on.

    Works great again!

There is a washer in the fill valve that probably has debris caught in it. It could also need to be replaced. It's under the cap at the top of the fill valve. Hold the base of the unit with water turned off and lift the small lever up and turn counter clockwise 1/4 turn. Lift off and remove the washer and replace it. With it off, put your hand over the top of the fill valve and turn the water on a little to flush out any debris that might be in the shaft.

My firex smoke and carbon monoxide alarm 7000 keeps beeping twice every 30 seconds. What does that mean?


Carbon monoxide alarms have a fixed life span. When it is time to replace them they start beeping. This is a safety feature because the sensor loses sensitivity as it ages and it may not go off when it is supposed to.

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.

How do I get rid of bedbugs naturally??how do I keep them out of my stuffed furniture without having to get rid of it?????


Three things will kill them naturally, heat (above 120 degree F), food grade diatomacious earth and permethrin spray.

Heat that high is hard to do alone, but you can contract (and I recommend you do based on your severity) a company to seal your outside doors and windows, and pump heat into your home for a few hours. This will kill all bedbugs(bb) in all stages of their life cycle. It takes a few hours at this heat to do so.

Diatomaceous earth is a powder that acts like concertina wire to pretty much all bugs. So the bugs have to physically come in contact with it. It is safe for mammals; you and your pet can eat the food grade level. You should dust the areas where there is the most bugs. I would dust around and in the beds, furniture and wherever else you suspect bugs. This will only kill the bugs that are moving. Eggs are safe. Plus, you cannot get the dust everywhere where the bugs can hide.

Permethrin is an oil extract from flowers. It is good against most arthopods and safe for mammals. The oil is diluted with water (I use hot or warm water) and applied by spraying. Depending on your spray applicator, you can spray into many places; however, it is only good for a about 24hrs. Direct contact is a must. It will kill bugs in all stages of life, but again, it must come in direct contact with them.

So to summarize, diatomaceous earth (DE) in conjuction with permethrin can wipe out a small, isolated infestation. If the bugs have moved to multiple places, heat is the best option as a whole-house solution as DE and Permethrin will not get into all the nooks and crannies like inside the walls and electrical outlets. These bugs can and do hide anywhere!

What do snails eat


What do land snails eat?

Land snails are mainly herbivorous, which means they eat plant life. There are a few snails that are carnivores, but chances are that your snail in not. Snails love to eat just about anything you would put in a garden salad. My recommendation is to start with some romaine, green leaf or even ice burg lettuce. Snails tend to like the softest and wettest part of the plant. If you have an herb garden that produces far more herbs than you need then try picking the newest leaves off of some of your herbs to see if they like them. Apples and carrots can also be a favorite of your pet snail. The key to their diet is to see what grows naturally around the area where you found your snail and bring that to them. During the winter you will have to rely heavily on the produce in your refrigerator to keep them well feed. Remember if the snail is eating all the food you gave him or her then you need to leave more out for them. Slightly rotten food is just fine. They are not terribly picky as long as you give them a food they enjoy.
One last tip: During the spring and fall when your grass is the greenest make sure to cut a big handful of grass for your snail to eat. Both land and the common garden snail love grass and most leaves.

What do water snails eat?

The common water snail is predominately an herbivore. Water snail mainly feed on the algae that will naturally grow on the inside of your fish tank or fish bowl. If you are putting a new snail in a fish tank then watch out! If you have any vegetation in the tank that you are fond of then do not put your snail in the tank. Larger snails can wipe out all plant life in just a few days.
Snails also eat algae along with the microscopic creatures that naturally live in a healthy ecosystem. In most cases you will have to supplement their diet with fish food. Along with fish food cubed up apples and carrots are a favorite. It will take a day or two for the apple or carrot to sink to the bottom. Once on the bottom and partially decayed your pet snails will thank you for the treat.
Tip: If you have more than one snail they are going to reproduce. To help minimize the number of snails in your aquarium you can simply cut back on the about of food you feed your little guys.
