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.

Float does not trigger valve to stop water - continues to run even though tank is full


What kind of flush valve is it? kohler.com shows a couple of different towers with their ingenium toilets. Is it a Kohler item or is it a Fluidmaster?
Usually you adjust water height by turning a threaded rod that runs up and down. See page 5 of this pdf

The pump in my unit continues to try to pump.This happens around every 30 seconds


The problem is the non return valve probably at the elbow end of the unit. If it is a new unit then i would say the rubber has not been installed and if it is an old unit the rubber has probably become dislodged

I have a saniplus toilet, the macerating unit runs about every 2 minutes for 1-2 seconds at a time. I'ver replaced the flapper and even turned off the water to the unit and stopped using it, but it keeps...


Water pressure makes the unit kick on and off. Water could be leaking from the toilet tank into the bowl and from bowl into the pump. Or the check valve inside the discharge elbow (on top of the lid) may not be sitting properly or is being obstructed causing waste water to leak inside the pump, creating enough water pressure to make the unit kick on and off by itself.

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.

Toilet bowl, and pump housing are full, drain pipe clear? pump not running correctly. how do i drain it to get acsess to pump?


Prepare to get dirty. Use a mug with a handle to lift the water out of the toilet bowl into a bucket. Reduce the water level until it stops increasing from the backflow from the Saniflo. Disconnect the electrical connections (isolate the unit first) Disconnect the outflow pipe but be prepared for some spillage from any vertical pipe in your domestic installation. Ease the boot off the WC soil pipe, Disconnect any breathers. Slide the unit out from behind the toilet but maintaining a backward tipping angle to prevent water inside the unit from spilling out of the boot. Take the whole unit outside, keeping it tipped backwards. Take the lid off, noting how the seal is oriented for reassembly. Use a high pressure garden hose to clean out the interior and inspect. Check the rubber diaphragm on the bottom of the sensor unit. These develop corrugations and become slack over time. If so it will have insufficient power to depress and release the microswitch within the sensor unit. If your unit filled the toilet bowl with soiled water and the pump kept running, it is likely that the non-return valve beneath the outlet pipe is faulty. On some models the valve is Y shaped and the branch of the Y is a rolling ball that falls by gravity when the pump switches off. Replace the valve. If your unit kept running but with clean water in the bowl, it is likely your diaphragm is faulty. Check for corrugations and make sure it is no longer caked with accumulated solid waste. If you cannot buy a new sensor unit complete with diaphragm, you may need a new Saniflo. Both of my Saniflo units stopped working satisfactorily after 10 years. My German built unit has now been working without fault for 19 years.

Toilet refills and water stops running. a couple seconds later get the sound of air which continues. if I push black float down a bit it stops manually but when I let go continues??


It can be one of two things first you either have air in your watter line in this case let water run for a while and see if you get air if so let it run until it quits spitting or contact your water company for help.Second the diaphram is worn in the top of the valve in this case the whole valve will need to be replaced turn off water flush toilet put pan or bowl under water line at toilet remove water line at toilet .Unscrew the fitting and remove hose next remove the large plastic nut on the bottom of tank .Some water will leak out hence the bowl! remove valve replace wit new one line up in same direction it was removed put on new rubber washer supplied,Tighten plastic nut replace hose and tighten turn on water that should fix it!

The tank no longer fills with water so the toilet doesn't flush. Unit has been problem free for almost 10 years. Water supply valve in the back opens and closes. Simply quit.


it's probably your fill valve has gone kaput! try replacing that. turn the water off disconnect the water suppily line and there should be one nut under the toilet tank and then the whole valve should pop right out and you can pick up a new one . fluidmaster makes the best one! and just follow their instructions on installing it.

Usually, there is a diaphram located at the needle valve that can be removed and cleaned and or replaced. If you know you have grit in the water, then you are right, that will cause problems with the fill valve not fully closing.
