Cadet 3 round bowl toilet not flushing all from bowl

I have a cadet 3 round bowl toilet and noticed that it doesn't flush everything away like it's supposed to (like the elongated bowl toilet does, my aunt has one of those)... unless everything going in the bowl falls square in the center, a single flush doesn't always empty the bowl. It sometimes it requires 2-3 flushes, which defeats the purpose (saving water using less water per flush but having to flush multiple times, isn't saving any water).

Any idea what might cause this? Maybe the water is set too low?
Thank you!

You are probably correct, the water level needs to be raised. There are many different toilet tank systems, but all have some way to control the water level in the tank. Let me know if you need help figuring it out...

P.S. You'll have to take the lid off the tank, first...pardon me if that is too obvious

Cadet 3 toilet smells like pee - NOT a SEWER smell, a urine smell. It's a brand new toilet, installed by our contractor. There's a brand new extra thick wax ring too. The room smells like urine when nobody...


If your contractor supplied the toilet, then it is his/her problem, not yours. If you supplied the toilet, then: take a mirror and examine under the lip of the bowl. How does the glazing look? Are there areas without glaze? If so, these bare areas are a breeding ground for bad odors. You can try a thorough cleaning both inside the bowl and around the outside of the toilet with an amonia cleaning product. If you use amonia, DO NOT use bleach: the two combined create a deadly gas. Whatever you do, do not hang a bleach based product inside the tank: the bleach will eat away at anything rubber inside the tank. There is a bleach product that hangs inside the tank and disperses the bleach directly into the tube that leads to the toilet bowl. This would be OK.

My brand new toilet american standard round front model cadet 3 tank not fill water


If you verify that the water supply to the toilet is turned on, push down the float on the flush valve. Water should start flowing. If it doesn't, something (such as debris) may be blocking the valve and preventing filling. The new valve could be defective - permanently closed.

The bowl doesn't flush from the front part


If a new toilet, the front holes may not have been cast correctly. If an older toilet it is likely mineral buildup has blocked those holes. A mittor and a coat hanger shoudl suffice to open the holes up, use the mirror to see under the rim lip and use the coat hanger to open the holes- you may need to use a larger clip instead depending on the size of the holes.

I have a new American Standard Cadet 3 that was just installed. After flushing, the water fills into the bowl. However, after several minutes, the water in the bowl slowly drains away and is nearly gone....


Sorry for problem with new toilet.
You say water is leaking out of the bowl?

Toilets have 2 parts:
1) Tank: where water is stored for the flush and is sealed with a flapper.
2) Bowl: where water flushes down.

a) If tank is leaking water, then flapper is suspect. Replace flapper and see if that works.
Lift up flapper and run finger around rim to see if there is a rough spot that would indicate flush valve is defective, and needs replacement.
See typical flush valve

b) If bowl is leaking, that is very unusual and would indicate a crack in the porcelain.

If installer sold you the toilet, it is his responsibility to make good on product.
All products are guarantee against workmanship flaws.

After flushing, water level in bowl fills and then slowly drops.


Check to be sure small tube is flowing inside the ovefow tube. This is the water that flushes the rim holes, and refills the bowl. If you don't have flow clean or replace the float valve.

We have just recently purchased one of the American standard cadet at home depot from a discount flyer and had it for about a day and took it back.

Like you said, Did not notice Any thing like a strong flush.

RECOMENDATION:

Take it back.

Home Depot also sells a Kohler Toilet 1.6 Gallon Flush Install
This is all it said it was. It saves water for sure and has a quick flush.

We liked it so much we purchased two of them because everyone in the house only wanted to using our bathroom.

Hope this tip helps.
