SOURCE: Flush valve drops before bowl completes flush

is the flapper weighted? if it is it will cause it to shut prematurely. one thing you can do is increase the water in the tank. you might have to buy a pvc cuppler to put on the over flow to allow it to fill up more. korky makes a nice flapper thats not weighted

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

Can low water pressure cause my toilet cisterns to keep running


NO
persistent running is problem valve washers either in the water level control or the flush washer under the press buttons
low pressure will take a longer time to fill but when the level is attained the water will stop flowing in

The toilet won't flush out I have changed the flapper and float but won't flush out the bowl


I am not familiar with the term flapper. I don't think our toilet cisterns use a flapper.

All the cisterns I have seen work by a syphon action and mostly the only thing that goes wrong with them is the thin polythene disc buried inside the syphon. The disc lays across a hollow piston and the linkage lifts the piston to begin the syphon action and the flush.

There are a few designs of push-button cisterns designed to be more economic on water which I haven't yet seen the inside of but I expect they too will work on a syphon principle - in the absence of a pump how else could it work?

in almost every case of a syphon not working (assuming everything is more or less as it should be) is air getting in somewhere and preventing the mechanism lifting the head of water to begin the syphon.

Sorry I can't help further.

The dual flush cistern does not empty when the buttons are depressed. They have to be held down to clear the toilet bowl. How can I fix this?


cisterns never completely empty as the setting of the mechanism to close the valve is activated when it gets heavier than the water supporting it
try allowing more water into the cistern on a fill by adjusting the water level control
get a plumber in to clean out the sewerage pipes as there appears to be an obstruction in the line

Cistern


The arm controls the Flush Valve. Inside the flush valve is a black rubber "seal" that closes the end of the fill pipe and stops the water. If a piece of sand, grit, or small rock gets imbedded in the seal it will allow water to pass through even when the tank is full. Either you take apart the flush valve and remove the grit, or you replace the whole valve. Sometimes even when the grit is removed the rubber seal is damaged and must be replaced. A new valve, and some of these replacement seals can be purchased at a good hardware or plumbing supply store. Use the valve handle, below the tank, on the pipe that comes through the wall, to turn off the water before replacing the seal or valve.

I have a Duravit Starck 2 toilet cistern which is approximately 5 yrs old, recently water from the cistern runs constantly into the bowl. I have renewed the flush value without any success. I would...


Did you replace the flush valve or the flapper?

There must either be a problem with the seal between the two surfaces of the flapper and flush valve or the flapper is being prevented by the flush system to returning to make a seal against the flush valve after the water completes draining during the flush cycle or more likely water is draining through the overflow tube.

Make sure the sealing surfaces are clean and not damaged.

Make sure the flapper is not being interfered with and is able to return to the closed position to make a complete seal against the flush valve.

Check adjustment of the water fill level to make sure the water is not filling above the water overflow. If the inlet valve does not shut-off when the level is adjusted to the proper level the water inlet valve may need replacing.

On my eljer toilet, I get continuous running of the water. If I shut valve off and pump the tank, the running stops (but only for a week or so). Suggestions? model 150-403 power flush pf/2


I don't know what you mean by "pumping" the tank. If the toilet runs, then either the fill valve is defective or the seal on the flush valve is defective. First, check to see that when you move the float, the toilet stops running. If it does not, then replace the fill valve. If it does, then inspect/replace the seal on the flush mechanism at the bottom of the tank. If this seal is bad, you can usually see water continuously flowing (slowly) into the bowl. You will see ripples on the surface of the water in the bowl.
