SOURCE: Water comes from bottom of tank when commode is

You need a new tank gasket. It is a rubber piece that seals between the tank and the bowl. They are fairly inexpensive and if you have patience and a little plumbing know-how; they can be changed at home. Here is a good on-line set of instructions:

SOURCE: Water comes from bottom of tank when commode is

Ok the toilets work is that the tank reservoir is where your fresh water....is stored....and the flush valve...(if you take the tank lid off you will see that the handle is either connected to a chain or uses a lever to lift something called a flapper....it is usually black but it can be gray..or blue...also there is a flash valve that is a long tube and a round bottom with a rubber gasket...that seals the flush water into the tank...reventing it from entering the bowl.......when you lift the handle water dumps from the tank...into a s-shape tunnel called a trap...(this is in place to prevent sewer gases from entering the house the water sits in the bottom of the trap acting as a seal against smells...gas...etc...from the sewer line....Now your tank is mounted to the bowl by (2 or 3) bolts that you can see and access from inside the tank...however the person doing this will have to also reach under the toilet where the tank mounts to the bowl and hold a pair of pliers or a crescent wrench on the nuts which hold the tank in place.....after these are removed...the tank will lift off of the bowl.(now obviously the water has to be shut off and be disconnected from the tank....when the tank is lifted ...a small amount of water may spill out ...but it is clean water...so no worries....since the tank and the bowl are made of porcelain they obviously would not seal just sitting on top of each other so the tank...has the bottom part of the flush assembly which is mounted to the tank by way of a large plastic nut extends out of the bottom opf the tank 2-3 inches......around this is another black or gray about 3-5 inches in diameter...and costs less than $5 at Home Depot.....change this out, reassemble and your back in business. Be advised that the flapper in the bottom of the tank...if you ever have to change it out and the tank gasket you are going to change out (after a long period of use or just time and deterioration)...leave black residue on your hands...if you handle them...but it is safe and easily washed off...it just may freak.. a layperson out....so one may want to use some gloves they can toss afterwards....Any other questions....and I can absolutely answer them in regards to toilets...as i have repaired and or replaced 2500 - 3000 in my 35 years in the apt/home maintenance industry.

I hope this helps.....thank you for rating my effort...and good luck....tha Fang.

SOURCE: toto toilet does not flush properly - insufficient

Check water level in tank for proper height it should be about 5/8 close to top of stand pipe in tank or it should have a mark on it wher it should be.


You can adjust the flush valve to increase water height.

First try yourself for checking internal part where some particle stuck inside the flush or check the flush for how much water coming from the pipe if not found properly then i suggest A-general plumbers for best services they handle this type of issue easily.

I have a Jacuzzi low flow toliet. Sometimes the water won't shut off after it is flushed


A frequent cause of this is a defective flapper. If the flapper does not seat properly after a flush, the refill water will flow continuously

Welcome to the world of 1.6 gallon flush toilets. You have already done everything that can be done to help the problem and no you are not the only people having this problem. This is just the beast!
They have had this problem with these 1.6 flush toilets from the get go and have come out with power flush toilets to fix this but hold on to your wallet. There are some toilets out there that work better without the power flush made buy American Standard and Kohler but they will run you more then the Jacuzzi.
Sorry I wish there was a better answer to this.

How do you replace the flapper for a 1.6 gallon, two piece Jacuzzi toilet


http://www.ccowhirlpool.com/web-pdfs/Jacuzzi_Whirlpool_Bath/Toiletry.pdf

The top link has diagrams of internal working's of different types of Jacuzzi toilets. Most of them have a tab's on the over flow tube that the flapper will fit on. Shut water off and flush tank to get most of the water out and take a look on how the old one is connected. And replace with a new one. Check out the chain or plastic string which connect's flapper to handle to get proper adjustment for flushing toilet.

Toilet acts like it's getting pluged up as soon as you flush .


use a two gallon buck to flush your toilet - you pour the two gallons directly into the toilet bowl if it flushes fine you need to replace the flush valve, as it is not letting enough water through to properly flush the commode. either rebuild the flush system in the tank or install a fluid master and have a good nights sleep knowing that in the morning you will not leave a suprise for someone else in the family.
