Uberhaus dual flush toilet power-assisted

I have 2 of these installed and every once is a while I have to fill the reservoir by bucket to get the water above a certain level. Now, that trick isn't working. These hi-efficiency toilets has the fill tub directly filling what I normally think is an overfill tube. There is no normal flapper, instead there is the huge cylinder with 2 push buttons. I can't figure out what to replace. I hear a slow leak into the bowl because if I fill the tank by bucket, the level eventually drops and it starts the constant refill cycle again. I can't even find parts for this toilet: UBERHAUS #L1315E346 Thanks in advance

SOURCE: American Standard Elongated toilet bowl water level slowly drops

The tank holding the proper amount of water is a good sign. The inside of the stool is like the GOOSE NECK under you sink. It always holds water. This may sound like a bit of a hassle to do but if all 3 toilets are identical, here is what you can try if you are a bit handy. Go to the hardware store and purchase 4 toilet wax rings with a plastic flange and a few sets of toilet floor flange bolts(they are cheap and you can always return if not used, as It is better to have xtra parts on hand). Turn off the water supply to the "Mystery Toilet". Leave the tank and everything connected to the stool. Flush the toilet and remove all excess water from the tank and bowl. This can be done with a shop vac, sponge or towel. Disconnect the water supply to the tank. Remove the bolts holding the stool to the floor and carefully remove toilet. Scrap off all the old wax from the floor flange and bottom of stool. Now go and repeat this proceedure to one of the toilets that is working properly. In other words Switch the "Mystery Toilet" with a "Working Toilet" and see how they react. If the working toilet does it in the same bathroom and the "Mystery Toilet" does not do it in the other bathroom then you probably have a VENTING PROBLEM. If the "Mysery Toilet" Does it in the other bathroom then you most likely have a Defective Toilet. This Job is best done by 2 people, as it can sometimes be challenging to center the new wax ring on the toilet flange. Reconnect to the floor and reconnect water supply to the tanks. DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN BOLTS to the floor flange as you may crack the toilet. All drain lines must be vented properly for water to flow. If you are curious check out drain venting on the internet. Also, sometimes a vent can become obstructed with debris, ice, bird nest, etc.. I would 1st check the vent on the roof visually and then have someone flush and listen. If you believe the vent is clear....Then do the toilet switch and go from there.....Hope this helps and Happy Holidays....Joe

SOURCE: Toilet Refills Every 15-Minutes

I have minute amount of leakage into the bowl causing mold to grow. I believe that it may be the rubber seal for the flapper body to the porcelain.

SOURCE: Replaced toilet fill valve - now bowl water level a bit lower

put some water in with a bucket. poor some in slowly until you get it where you think it should have been. If it levels back out at the lower level. Then there is nothing wrong. Maybe the leaking water was keeping the bowl water line high than it should have been.

SOURCE: Toilet Bowl Water Level Slowly Drops

Check the fill tube in your toilet one easy way to see if it's leaking is get food coloring and pour in your tank to color the water this makes it easier to see and squeeze the tube in the tank when it's full if you see the colored water running down the middle of it you have a winner! if not you can look around for it sometimes the plastic under the flapper gets cracked too

Roca dual push button Toilet will only flush when holding the push button continuously down until the cistern is empty. It won't completely flush like it should when pressing the button once.


allow tank to fill a little more by adjusting fill valve. When there's not enough water flowing from tank the stopper can over-power the water flow and cause the flush to stop by re-sealing.

I have a uberhaus dual flush toilet. I turned off the water supply in the house to work on a sink and when I turned it back on the toilet won't fill anymore. If I fill the tank or the bowl it will flush...


You will have to disassemble the fill valve and clean it. When you shut the water off and on to work on the sink it dislodged dirt and scale in the water piping which clogged the toilet fill valve. Check your lavatory sink areators too they may also be partially plugged. Hope this helps.

Why my uberhaus dual flush toilet does not flush properly


Perhaps it is taking a long time to fill the cistern, take top off and see if it's filling after flushing, if it's slow and pressure is ok it is likely to need a new diaphragm in the filling valve.

Uberhaus dual flush toilet keeps running


The flapper may not be seating properly after a flush. Even though you say the toilets are brand new, something may be askew in the flushing assembly or may have been affected during installation

Vent on top is blowing bubbles and toilet pan is filling up with effluent


If you have a Saniplus model then the vent connection is on the top right side of the pump casing if you are facing the toilet with pump sitting behind. The vent pipe needs to be minimum 1 1/2" and must be vented to the open air so air can flow in and out at all times. To the left side of the vent connection is the discharge pipe which should be a 3/4" or 1" discharge pipe. You can try disconnecting the vent pipe and run it with the vent pipe open, also you can disconnect the discharge pipe and put a bucket at the end of the discharge elbow and flush the toilet into the bucket, it will free flow into the bucket and there are no restrictions. That way you can tell if the problem is the pump or the installation set up.

TOILET WONT FLUSH AWAY PROPERLY


I believe what your plumber was referring to are the flushing orifices. Yes they have changed through the years. Unless you have a pressure assisted toilet, the orifices are what makes it flush, by breaking the trap seal and creating a vacuum. Now that being said you can check to see if this is the problem by filling up a bucket with aprox. 2 gallons of water and dumping it straight into the bowl. It should flush right down with out hesitation. If it does then your orifices are not working properly. If this is a new stool, it is possible it is just a bad mold and should be replaced. I hope this helps. Your new toilet should flush for you.
