Our push button toilet keeps slowly draining and refilling, it seems to be a rubber gasket at the bottom, possibly? Is this something I can fix with a waterproof compound?

There is a rubber flapper at the bottom of the tank that must seat properly for the tank to refill. The flapper is a routine replacement item because it tends to lose its sealing ability over time. I have found that an inexpensive replacement flapper lasts about as long as more expensive ones. Whenever you begin to have the problem you described, check first to determine whether the flapper is failing

How to fix a running toilet


Please remove the lid from the tank on the back of the toilet to see wherein lies the problem.
You may find the flapper stuck in the upward position.
The flapper is usually black rubber, and is supposed to cover the drain hole in the middle of the bottom of the tank.
Flappers can turn your hands black if you touch them. Not a joke.
See if simple jiggling the handle will cause the flapper to work properly.
The regulator mechanism can also be worn out. That is the assembly that refills the tank after it is flushed. That can also stick and the water keeps running.
You may determine which of these is your problem.
God bless your efforts.

How to mend a running gural vitrifiye toilet cistern


With lid removed, look down into it and remove and replace the black rubber thing in the center. This is the flush valve and is worn to the point where is no longer provides a tight seal allowing water to pass and run into bowl. Also, could be something underneath it not allowing it to seat properly.

Kohler santa rosa fills, shuts off, a little water leaks from tank, toilet refills and repeats the leakage into the drain.


There is a rubber seal at the bottom of the flush valve that covers the openning at the bottom of the tank. If this rubber seal has perished slightly then it will leak water into the toilet bowl. This rubber seal need to be replaced to form a proper seal to prevent water leak.

Hello, W/D here.

With the water off, drain the tank (lift the flapper). Look inside where the flapper seats. If the (usually black) gasket is rippled, this may be the cause of your trouble. You can remove the rippled portion of the gasket with a razor knife, just be very careful not to damage the flapper seat. Removing the protruding material will allow the flapper to fully seat without damaging the gasket integrity.
Best regards,
--W/D--

A fairly easy ( but messy ) fix - get a replacement tank to bowl gasket and bolt kit, shut off water supply, drain tank, remove bolts ( you might have to cut, depending on your water source and minerals in your water). Remove old gasket and clean surface with 00 grade steel wool. Replace gasket, install new bolts, remount tank.
Good luck!!

Toilet tank is refilling slowly.


Hi AaronYC,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumbe.

Your problem is: Installed a new American Standard Cadet 3 toilet bowl and tank at home. When you turn the water supply on, the tank refills normally and stops normally. After you flush, the refill is very slow. When it refills normally the water comes out from the bottom of the pipe (i.e. the pipe that houses the float cup) and when it is refilling slowly, it comes from the top of the pipe. Sometimes (but not always), you can shut the water supply off and when you turn it back on, the flow of water goes from slow to fast instantly - but you haven't been able to recreate this consistently.

These are the facts. American Standard has been keeping costs down by out sourceing. Their toilets are now built in third world countries and parts are made cheap. They're all doing it. Quality control is pretty good but your toilet came with a bad "ballcock". That's the refill part on the left. Because it's new, if you take the ball **** back to place of purchase they should give you new. If not, they cost less than $ 10.00 and easy to replace.
