The flapper can't seal totally so the slow leak cause the flush to cycle every half hour. I've tried several flappers but same problem

Try an epoxy putty on the inside of the tank. If it is a slow leak then this will be fine. If yu have a large crack then you need to replace the toilet as it is nolonger in safe working condition and you would not want to have it break when you are away from home.

Get an epoxy putty that can dry while still wet and roughen up the inside surface of the tank with a bit of sandpaper or steel wool before to give the epoxy a good surface to adhear to.

Hope this helps.

Why do i have to hold my toilet lever to flush?


Hi Nathan:
If you lift the tank lid off and flush the toilet you will see that a flapper valve lifts to let the water drain from the tank. The flapper valves are designed to stay in the closed position when the tank fills, but to float when the tank is flushed.
The problem will probably be that the flapper valve no longer floats due to saturation with water, or a leak that has allowed water inside the float.
The fix is to replace the float valve. Parts are available at most hardware and plumbing supply stores.
Cheers

My toilet keeps leaking water and then fill ups on its own. Where could the leak be how do I fix it? Also I have to hold down the flush lever awhile for the toilet to completely flush. Can this be fixed ?...


If you are not getting puddles on the floor then it is probably the 'FLAP" that holds the water in the tank. It is the rubber part that is connected to your handle. Any hardware store will carry that part since it is an item that will fail, especially in hard water. It is probably the cause of both problems.

Hi keithn60...

I had the same problem one time with my toilet tank, the answer is to put some silicone on the seal washer between the take and bowl assembly and to use a level on the tank to tighten it just enough to be level and not leak.

Have old kohler, i do not know what the inside flapper part is. However toilet will flush but tank will not fill. I can turn thhe water to the tank off and turn on again and it will fill


This indicated that there is dirt of corrosion in the flush valve assembly that get jarred loose and flushed out when turning on the supply valve below. My recommendation is replacing the flush valve assembly with a Fluidmaster flush valve. Be sure to follow the instructions when removing the old valve and installing the new one. If you need step by step instructions, please message me and I will provide them.

My toilet only leaks when flushed. It seems to be coming from the connection at the tank. The tank is not cracked and a new hose from tank to shut off valve has been installed. The toilet is only 4 years...


If you have 2-part toilet, then tank is attached to bowl with 2 bolts.
Look inside tank and you can see bolts with rubber washers located on either side of flush valve.
The 2 bolts hold tank and bowl together and between tank and bowl is a washer called the spud washer.
So spud washer could be leaking ... or 2 bolts could be leaking.

1) If bolts are leaking, there is usually dripping all the time, and drips are visible on bottoms of bolts
If spud washer is leaking, then tank could leak only when tank is flushed.

2) First thing to try is tightening nuts on the 2 bolts. Nuts may be loose. Tighten nuts a few turns, and check if toilet still leaks.

3) To fix a spud washer, you usually need a new generic one from hardware store.
Newer tanks with 1.6 gallon flush have special sized spud washer.

If you cannot find new spud washer, re-use old one and smear retorseal on it during re-assembly to make sure it seals. Rectoseal is good for many home plumbing repairs. More about that in a moment.

4) To take apart tank: Disconnect supply line to tank. Empty water out of tank. Remove nuts from bolts. Lift tank off. Wash out tank with hose. Make sure there is no sand or sediment left in bottom that might clog up flush holes located inside bowl after tank is re-assembled.

5) Remove old spud washer, and put new one on. Do a google-image search for 'spud washer' if you need more photos. New spud washer fits over flush valve. That's it. And then reassemble tank.
If you want to apply rectorseal to washer, put washer on as shown in photo above. Then smear-or-gawm rectorseal over area of washer that sits on bowl. Rectorseal will make sure there is no more leaking.

Toilet tank looses water over time


As long as there is no water leaking from the tank to bowl connection, you are OK. You would know if it was leaking here, because you would have water dripping out onto the floor.

Verify that the water level in your tank is below the top of your new flush valve's overflow tube. If the water level comes to the top, it will overflow into the toilet bowl. This can be easily fixed with an adjustment to the fill valve.

If the water is not overflowing into this tube, then the only way you can lose water is through the flapper. You said you changed the flush valve, which would have come with a new flapper attached to it, but maybe buy a new flapper and see what happens???

My dual flush toilet fills up slowly how do i fix


Lift the tank lid off, place it somewhere safe for a moment, and look at what happens: If you're talking about jiggling the handle to get the tank to start to fill with water, then it sounds like the chain or rope is out of adjustment. It can't be TOO TIGHT or the water will leak past your flapper (will cause your dripping noise, tank water level will leak down, causing constant refills), and it cant be TOO LOOSE or the toilet won't flush correctly. Since you didn't mention trouble flushing the toilet, I think that it may be a little too TIGHT. When you jiggle the flush lever-it is supposed to pull a chain or cable to open the flapper at the bottom of the tank. Flush the tank and watch what happens-all the way through to refilling the tank with water and shutting off the water refill valve-Does the flapper get stuck on the chain or something? It is supposed to fall back down to allow the tank to refill after flushing out your toilet. Does the chain look very loose? The dripping sound you described indicates that the flapper is not sealing 100%. The flapper is very easy to replace, you just have to get the adjustment set for when you flush the toilet how sensitive you need it. You amy have to play with it a little bit before you get the adjustment correct.

Hope this helps!

Seal between tank and toilet are leaking


Purchase a new flush valve at hardware store.
You'll need cresent wrench, locking pliers, small pipe wrench, small pail, towels, putty knife.
turn off water supply, flush toilet to remove water from tank, soak up remaining water with towel in tank, remove supply line from valve on botton of tank (you may have to hold valve with pliers inside the tank to keep from turning.) Clean area inside tank with putty knife where new valve will seat. Install new valve, attach supply line, connect overflow tube. turn on water.
Check for leaks.
Repeat if necessary. :-)
