Readjust the float. the longer it is the more leverage the fill water will have on it. good luck. The fill valve does come apart and cleaned if there is debri in it. Turn the water off first:)

SOURCE: my toilet cistern is continually hissing

Hi I have exactly the same problem, in fact it could have been me writing this - 3 toliets fine, main bathroom hisses. The Geberit flushing ciphen on the left (the smaller one) has been replaced and there is still a problem. If you look carefully,the water level needs to come up over the lip of an opening on the Geberit part and this causes the valve mechanism to shut off and stop the hissing. It is fine for about 40 minutes and then the hissing starts again if you don't flush it. The reason is that the water level has gone down but there is no obvious signs of where the water is going. It could be that the central flush mechanism is leaking slightly. I am going to replace this part next. If I were you I'd see if you are getting any water leakage into the pan when toilet not in use to see if the water level in the cistern is going down James T

That is a tricky one. Tighten the tabs, twist into place, then tighten a bit more. They are a pain in the a$$, but with patience you will get it done. Good luck

Tip

FIXING A TOILET THAT WILL NOT FLUSH!!! a simple but very effective money saving...


This simple how to, is based upon most lever operated toilets, with the cistern mounted above the toilet bowl. The make and model of toilet used for this feature is of the following:
Toilet and internal syphon
DUDLEY ELITEDudley S7 Cascade syphon
Problem:
My toilet will not flush, but the ball float valve is working and there is water in the cistern; no leaks present and the flushing lever is not broken or disconnected, what do I do?
Answer:
first isolate the water to the toilet or the main water supply to the house. Bail out the water from the cistern using a small jug or cup, (or you can syphon the water manually using a hosepipe or similar pipe, a towel to cover your mouth, and either a bucket or the toilet bowl) and remove water from the bottom of the cistern with a sponge.


Changing the syphon in a toilet that is not close coupled is far easier as you do not need to remove the cistern from the wall!


Undo the lower of the two large nuts beneath the cistern using a large pipe wrench or pair of water pump pliers, now disconnect the flush pipe and push it to one side.
Place a bucket or bowl beneath the cistern and undo the Nut which is immediately below the cistern (syphon replacing nut), some water may be released by the syphon, take note of any washers that are removed as new ones need fitting when replacing the siphon.
Unhook the lift rod from the flushing lever and remove the syphon.


Inside the toilet syphon, there will be a small plastic piece of sheet called a diaphragm; you can fabricate a replacement using the plastic title cover on a DVD case. Cut this to the exact same size and shape as the original part, and fit this to where the original diaphragm was. This is your new replacement.


Refitting is a complete reversal of removal, be sure to fit any washers (preferably new ones) that you have taken out. Ensure everything is tight but do not over tighten before refilling the cistern

Opal 2000 toilet suite, water leaking from around bedding cement. Have marked water level in cistern and bowl with marker and there is no change, water would appear to be coming when toilet is flushed like...


check the donut seal which seals the cistern to the pan, they perish and leak when the toilet is flushed, water runs down back of pan to floor you can check this by drying/wiping with tissue back of pan and flushing you will see if any moisture is running down there by wiping again with tissue and seeing if it is damp.

Hi i have a closed cistern on my toilet and the flush wasnt working! Eventually got lid off after much turmoil and flush works without lid but when lid is fastened on - it flushes but water keeps syphoning...


If water is constantly running into the cistern you will need to change the rubber washer in the shut-off valve. Washer kits are available from most DIY stores. Turn the water off at the isolating stop-****. Unscrew the end of the inlet valve (watch out that any springs etc. don't ping out) change teh washer and reassemble in reverse order.

I can hear a dripping of water but the washer is fine. The water tap is turned down low, I'm a female and not familiar with the makings of a toilet cistern how does the centre flushing mechanism come out....


Anytime that you have water dripping between flush cycles, it is caused by water leaking through the flush valve. Without being able to look at it I would recommend placing the entire flush valve assembly (flush ball/plunger and the valve seat (washer). The part is not expensive, although the labor may be. You could replace the flush ball or plunger (whichever type it is) yourself and that may correct the problem.

The toilet was installed under the stairs a year ago and has hardly been used - the bowl keeps filling after flushing and overflows, I cant shut it off. It flooded the down stairs twice now - all over...


Take the lid off the cistern tank and have a look. There is a ( usually ) round float ball in there. This is what is causing it. When the cistern fills up the ball is supposed to float up and the arm it attaches to shuts off the water, usually at the opposite end to the float.
Turn the tap on the pipe to the cistern so it is nearly off and move the arm up and down by hand. See what it is getting stuck on or what is happening.

If it is not a simple sticking problem, you may need to undo the top of the cistern valve itself ( opposite end to the ball. )
Turn the water off completely to the cistern to do this or you will get squirted. :)
They are fiddly little valves and all a bit different but if you take your time and make sure you have a good light you will be able to work out what has been happening.
Hope this is some help.

Toilet trouble


Based on the phrasing of your question, I'm thinking that the bad noise happens for the first time when the valve opens to start filling (this happens when you first let water into the bowl) and then again when the valve closes (when the cistern is full). Valves sometimes have a high-pitched squealing noise when it takes a long time to open or close this valve. Sometimes, you can make it go away by turning the screw to adjust the height that the ball/float has to be in order to shut off the water (the more horizontal, the longer it takes to shut off the flow, and the longer the noise continues). Sometimes, this is just caused by an aging mechanism and it turns out to be quicker and easier to just replace that part of the toilet (they make replacement kits that are very inexpensive and easy to install).

Problem overflow valve


Firstly open the top of the Cistern(Where water is held)There are two most common Cistern internals ie;Ball-O-Stop(Ball on a arm connecting to valve). This one is easy, you just bend the arm downwards in the centre so that the ball shuts the valve at a lower level; The other type has a shaft(plastic) with a thread on it, connecting it to a "small bowl" that lifts up as water enters the cistern. To adjust the water level in cistern you have to turn the thread(Shaft) lowering the "small bowl" wich will shut the inlet to the cistern at a lower level. Hope this helps
