My toilet flushes, then the water in the bowl drains over 4-5 minutes resulting in sewer gas smells.


Look inside the tank under the lid, it sounds like the flapper that lets the water into the bowl is getting hung up on something when you flush. It could be the flushing lever. This would cause the flapper to stay open letting water to just pour into the open sewer line. It should be a simple fix. Just see what is binding the flapper & make an adjustment.

I have both a dual flush and a conventional high eff. toilet. the water level on both are set on maximum. but the dual flush won't flush toilet paper in a single fluh. can i change out the complet


Why do you want to change it out just because it doesn't take paper out ? The problem is in your trap. Don't change it unless you just want to. I don't think you can change it over anyway due to design differences.

After flushing, the toilet keeps running. However, if I turn off the water supply, and then turn back on, the toilet stops running until the next time it is flushed. Toilet makes a


It could be the type of flap you are using. I would suggest you try a different shaped flapper (a cone would work best) and if that doesn't do it, put a new kit into the unit, because it could be that the float system is sticking causing it to continue running.

Water swirls but does not siphon

A few things to check.....
Is enough water dropping... maybe the flapper is not working right or the tank is not filling properly..
Are the holes in the ring under the seat filled with ****??? or dirt???
Is the toilet vented properly??? maybe the vent is plugged... no air... no flush...
Is something stuck in the trap of the toilet so the water cannot get out quickly...use a toilet auger to check....
Drain pipe is plugged under toilet...

Toilet isn't siphoning fast enough. The water


take the uper cover fo the toilet. check for the chain, that chain goes to the balon with air that usualy goes up when water is filling in and stop the water.

so, check for that chain to be long enough (it can be regulated ussually). the problem relies that id the chain is too short the reservoir or tank of water cannot fill up to a 100% to siphoning fast enough.

Try adjusting the water level down about a half inch or so and see if that helps. It could just be siphoning. Otherwise the valve may be defective. Hope this helps.

The siphon mechanism works on a vacuum principle. If there is the slightest damage to the siphon membrane you will experience the problem you describe. A new siphon is required.

Kohler two peice toilet the water just circles and will not flush.there is plenty of water in holding tank that run through


These models need to have a flush valve flapper that has a styrofoam float on the lift chaninof the flapper. Go to hardware store or home improvement store and get a 'Korky brand toilet tank flapper with float 'ball". Cut the rubber ring piece away from the flapper and you don't need it (see cut here marks on flapper). Install flapper and adjust the float fairly close to the flapper.
When the water level drops in the tank and reaches the level of the float on the opne flapper, the flapper quickly closes causing the toilet to have a "surge" of siphon action which forces the water in the bowl to be drawn out.
