Cantilevered toilets coming loose from wall.

We have anumber of cantilevered toilets in our new court house and the ones that are handicap accessible seem to be loosening up and causing a wall problem. Could this be due to the required height of handicap naccessible toilets being 17-19" off the floor or could the bolts that secure it to the concrete slab (in the wall) be too small. Thanks...

Could be the ring that holds the bolt is broken. or the secure ring was not install correctly. it should be bolted to the floor and the toilet is bolted to the ring.
you need to take it off and resecrued the ring and the toilet. make sure the toilet is set square on the floor, any unevenness will loosen the toilet.

LG LFC21760ST Beeping Constantly again. Last time it cost me a fortune to replace the computer board. Isn't there a cheaper way to stop the sound?

I would suggest starting with the easiest troubleshooting tip first. Try unplugging it for 10 minutes and plugging it back in. Most (modern) appliances will reset to factory defaults when they are unplugged for a few minutes.

If you already have your answer to this disregard.
Are you saying that the old toilets and the new ones all did or are doing the same thing?
If yes are they installed on the same DWV (drainage waste and vent) plumbing system as the old ones?
How many toilets are we talking about?
Are any of the problem toilets set back to back in two bathrooms with a common wall?

I have two (back to back separated by a wall) Kohler toilets. Model K3589-47. One is always loosing the water in the bowl. It leaks out slowly but always does it. When I flush the toilet on the opposite...

You will need to check the drainage fitting these toilets are draining into. If it is a cross tee fitting without a baffle you are getting throw over across the fitting and it will not stop. The only fix for this is to replace the fitting in your drainage system. In Illinois it is a code violation to put this type of fitting in that application.

When these power flush toilets come out it made this problem worse. In short there is no fix for this problem other than redoing the drainage system.

I have a euro mono back to wall toilet and teh toilet seat has come loose. I have detached the seatgfrom its fixings but cannot see how to ighten the fixing as the screw is not visible nor accessible

I know its a long time since this question was posted but I had the same issue and have just fixed it. Remove the toilet seat by pushing in each of the two release buttons on the hinges, then lift. Where the hinges located are two circlular receivers, both have a metal cap that can be removed using a small flat head screwdriver or similar. This reveals a large cross-head bolt head on each which you can tighten. I suggest nipping them up not overtightening just in case you damage the bowl. At least once you know where they are you can re-tighten another day! Then reassemble (remembering to put the caps back on first)... I hope this helps someone - I spent ages looking for the answer on the internet only to find it all out myself. Good luck...

Handicapp Toilet Bowl does not fill - up as high as regular toilet > very small amount of water in bowl after flushing ie> about 10 cuos of water.. JUST INSTALLED IT NEW YESTERDAY...

Wiith all due respect, the Drake toilet is not a regular toilet and doesn't sound the same as a regular toilet when you flush it. It is in the design that allows it use only 1.5 gpf instead of 3.5 gpf. A rather unique thing is that while it is scientifically calibrated to release 1.5 gpf, it does not empty the tank of approximately 1 gallon of water. Therefore if one feels the need for a little extra umph, simply hold down the flush lever when you flush until the tank is emptied.

Toilets water pipes can come on either side majority are on the left side when facing toilet.A longer water supply line can be used for the water connection if the toilet has it on the opposite side.A plumbing supply house and some good hardware stores will carry a close rough toilet that can set 50 mms closer to the wall than a standard toilet. Generally toilets are measured from the wall to the center of the drain in the floor which standard is 304.8 mm so a close rough would fit with a drain 254 mms from the wall

Loose toilet seat

If the screws don't tighten the either the screw threads are stripped or the attachment nut is stripped. Take the screw and nut to any hmoe repair center and get new ones. remember don't over-tighten then screws as this will crack the unit.

hi as you are probably aware ,when the toilet is flushed the water pressure to the shower is reduced so you get hot/scalding water unfortunatly there is NO easy solution you could put a needle valve in the supply to the toilet and with trial and error by turning the valve down reach a compromise between the time it takes to fill the flushing tank and the shower temp the only real solution is to feed the toilet and shower off independent supplies but in most houses this is impractical if not impossible silk090
