I have an American Standard (right height) beig in color. Bowl has a large brown stain near the bottom.


Probably a mineral buildup. Pour a bucket of water into the bowl so that the bowl flushes but does not refill with water. In other words you want as little water in the bowl as possible so it wont dilute the cleaner. Use an acid cleaner like lime away in the bowl. Let it set for several hours or over night,. then scrub with toilet brush. Lime away is fairly safe but try not to splash it on your clothes or yourself. Wash it away if you do.
You may have to repeat to finish the job.

Caroma toilet 12years old, concealed cistern. Water leaking around base when toilet is flushed. water level maintained when not flushing, so the leak must be between the cistern and the bowl. Had a plumber...


Fixing a leaky toilet is actually rather simple, requiring few tools and just a little time and effort. In looking at Caroma toilets on Google, they appear to be just a standard type of unit, and should present few if any problems for yourself or any handyman of modest skill.

If it is leaking around the base of the toilet - where the toilet sits on the floor, the repair item is a simple wax seal. Here is a tutorial to effect this repair: Replace Toilet Wax Ring. The wax ring is very inexpensive, usually $5 to $10 USD.

If the water is leaking from between the tank (cistern) and the toilet bowl, the job is even easier, as it does not require lifting and moving the entire toilet. A good tutorial for that repair is here: How to Replace Tank to Bowl Gasket . The gaskets, new nuts, bolts and rubber seals come in a kit and also cost only $5 to $10 USD.

I am sorry to hear your Plumber insisted you buy an entire new toilet, but do remember he is in the business of making money!

I've had a saniplus toilet system (with toilet and sink) for about 10 years. Suddenly stopped working as well. The macerator pump runs in shorter bursts and the water level in the toilet goes down


You should check the 1 1/2" vent pipe if there is one attached to the top of the pump casing. The vent pipe must be vented to the open air, outside of the house so the unit can breath air in and out at all times. A lack of airflow usually creates this type of problems. Leave the vent connection open to the room and flush the toilet, you will see the difference when pumping.

My neighbours saniflow toilet is drivng me mad. The motor keeps whirring every 5 mins. Whats the problem, please!


Water pressure is what makes the unit kick on and off. If its kicking on by itself most likely water is somehow draining back into the pump. Start by checking the flapper in the flush valve inside the toilet tank, it may be leaking water into the bowl and from the bowl into the pump. Also inspect the check valve inside the 90 degree elbow where the waste is pump out from. The check valve may not be closing properly and is allowing waste water to drain back into the pump creating water pressure making the unit kick on and off by itself.

I think the problem with your toilet bowl is in the tank fitting of it..you better check if the fittings are proprerly working..You also check the flapper and also the fillvalve.
If it is not good already you can replace it by buying the tank fittings at the hardware store..And you better also be check it to your plumber for the second thought..

if you can see the water running in the bowl it's a good chance that the flappers warn http://www.aplumbers.com/residential/toilet
1. tank the tank lid off.2. flush the rubber thing that comes up and allows the water to go to the bowl is the flapper 3. remove 4. replace that should fix it.
problem 2
1. tank tank lid off.2. if the waters flowing over the long tube in the center and down then the water level is too high3. adjust the level either it will have a ball **** or a float in either case   a ball **** adjusts by a screw on the fill valve. the float has a either a metal rod w/ a pinch clamp or a plastic long screw type thing.4. adjust water level .5. barely lift handle to allow a little water out til fill valve kicks on then release handle til valve stops .6. just keep re adjusting til you get the water level right there should be a molded in line for the level on the back of the tank.

Toto Drake with Gmax that oesn't completely shut off.


When you look in the bowl of the toilet, do you see the water trickling? If so then the flapper needs to be replaced.

Also, does the water run intermitentedly? As in every 2 to 5 minutes does the water kick back on to refil the tank? If yes then the answer is yet again the flapper.

Now if the water is constantly running then you can try bending the float arm (the ron that is connected to the big floating ball) down and see if that helps. If not then the next step is to replace the fill valve assembly.

Both of these together will run you about $20-$30.

Kohler is correct. The most likely cause of this problem is an obstruction in the common vent stack that both toilets share. When you flush the old toilet it need more air to flush and will get it from the easiest source (your new water saver toilet). First adjust the float level in the old toilet so it won't use as much water or just stick a brick in the tank to take up space.Second, run a snake down the vent stack from the roof to check for obstructions. Birds will sometimes nest in there.
