Try manufacturer or local supplier. Failing that try craigslist and kijiji. GOOD LUCK. Or there ae bath fitters and restorers who might be able to renew the lid.

SOURCE: How to Install Toilet

It's not terribly complicated, assuming that by "install a new toilet" you mean where there was alredy an existing toilet. First, remove the old toilet. Shut off the water supply valve, and flush the toilet. Then use a spone to get rid of the water that remains in the tank. Remove the nuts on the two bolts at the base of the toilet where the toilet meets the floor. These are usually hidden under two plastic caps. Now gently rock the toilet until it comes away from the floor. Get help to carry it out. Clean up the old wax that's around the flange where the pipe disappears into the floor. Don't be a wuss, it's only wax. Now you'll need the new toilet, a new supply line, new mounting bolts (don't reuse the old ones) and a two wax rings. Yes, I said two wax rings. You'll see why in a minute. Assemble the new toilet according to the instructions provided. Now here's a warning: Do NOT overtighten the bolts the hod the tank to the bowl. You're dealing with ceramics here, don't break them. Now, put the new hold-down bolts in place on the flange. Read the insturctions that came with the toilet, but you have to do this NOW. Now you'll need a helper. With the toilet upsided down, unwrap a wax ring. Make sure it's room temprature or it won't seal. Press the wax ring around the outlet flange on the base of the toilet. Now you and your helper carefully turn the toilet over without crushing the wax ring. Lift the toilet and slowly lowe it so the wax ring is centered over the "flange" which is where the sewer pipe goes into the foor. Then press the toilet firmly in place. Now if you're like most people, you screwed up here and crushed the wax ring without being centered on the flange. That's why I told you to buy two. Now you know what not to do, scrape off the first one and start again. When you've got the toilet sealed on the flange, connect and tighten the nuts on the bolts. Now you may have to use a hacksaw to cut off the remaining ends of the bolts so you can get the neat little plastic caps to fit. Now connect the water supply line. Now's where you start praying. Turn on the water and let the tank fill. Check the supply line for leaks. Fix as necessary. Now flush. Is water running out from around the base of the toilet? No? Good, you got a good seal. Yes? Very bad. Time to go back to the home center for yet another wax ring. Repeat the sealing process and get a good seal this time.

SOURCE: toilet cistern doesn't fill up

it sounds like one or more of your shut off valves has a glog from hard water calcium. were from indiana its a big problem here.To check this u will have to shut off main water supply and remove top of shut off valve and check for white crusty blockage, even if u see a few particals its present. It can severely restrict flow.

Had an opella flush system fitted in January this year, now the cistern doesn't fill up after the toilet is flushed, unless the cold water tap is turned on. Can you advise? Feel I should call the plumber...


The fill system should have a small tube that runts down an open tube in the tank to the cistern. Remove the tank lid and place the tube back in the round tube about 3/4' in diameter and open.

How do you get the lid of the cistern?


Dear i_mckie224,

Most toilets you will find that the cistern lid should lift off without the need to remove any screws, nuts or bolts. some on the otherhand, such as the Dudley Elite, sometimes has a screw on the top of the cistern that you need to turn in order to remove the lid, but generically, as said, they should either lift or slide off. If you can provide me with more details about the toilet itself, then I will be able to assist you in finding the answer

Yours sincerely

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.

You will find it hard to find a tank lid by it's self. You can go through Kohler and get the part and it will run some where around 60 bucks you might get lucking on eBay.

Cant get the lid off a push button cistern


There are some dual flush cisterns where you have to depress one button to reveal a cavity in the second button. Put a screwdriver in that cavity to left out the second button, then release the first button and pry that out.

Underneath the buttons is a screw which must be unscrewed to release the cistern lid.

Not sure if this will apply to you... but if not, good luck anyway.

Replacement button needed


HI, Duravit spare parts can be a nightmare to find, and my best solution to you would be to unscrew the push button from the cistern lid. Take it along to your local plumbers merchant who will more than likely have a suitable non-genuine part that will work just as good.

When cistern fills with water it leaks into the bowl


Hi,

This is caused by the 'syphon' mechanism sticking, quite often nowadays the 'brilliant' plastic push button/ syphon combo sticks, and most toilets are fitted with an internal overflow, lift the lid on the cistern and check for anything causing an obstruction.

More often than not, it's a tiny bit of scale that causes such a headache, and the fact that nothing is made with any quality nowadays!

If you can't see what's wrong call a plumber, he/she will solve it.

I hope this helps
