Question about Jacuzzi Bath Perfecta EZ33 959 White round high-performance toilet

1 Answer

My new EZ-33 cloggs easily with small amount of waste to flush.

Liquids flush easily, but solids get stopped. Waste line is open, as sink water drains normally.

    This unit should be an excellent flusher as it has a MaP test rating of 1000 grams. Jacuzzi doesn't show a parts diagram on there website for this model so I can't tell what the flush mechansim is like. Does it have a flapper? If so, does it stay open for a moment when the flush lever is pushed?

You have to take the whole toilet out. you need to check the opening of the down pipe. most likely the wax ring is blocking the soilds. shunt off the water drain out the toilet, unbolt the floor bolts and left it up. clean out the down pipe and replace a new wax ring.

Why the Water drains out of the bowl once flushed and refilled


Water will pull from your toilet if you drain below your toilet is slightly blocked. Most drains in the USA are about 4 inches wide and will allow quite a large amount of waste to pass through. Any blockage will force more pressure from the drain to the toilet and pull more water from the bowl. Reversed effect you will get bubbles that push through to the inside of your toilet. might try some toilet waste line dissolving cleaner..

Hope this helps FixYa issue - Have a great night..

How to unclog a garbage disposal


Before you tackle this problem, you should understand how to use your disposer so you'll probably never have to deal with a clog again. You can easily use put a sinkfull of waste down your disposer without a hitch. It's all about controlling the amount of water mixed in with the waste. Your disposer is designed to break waste down to pieces a little smaller than a BB. This is efficient but without much water, the pieces will clump together right where the disposer connects to the drain line, and will cause a clog. Never turn on the disposer without a full flow of cold water. Cold water not only helps to cool the motor, but keeps any fat solidified so that it doesn't build up on the walls of the pipes. The full flow of water will allow the disposer to mix the waste in and it'll go right down the drain. The second thing you must control is the amount of waste that goes in the disposer. It's really a bad idea to put more than like half a cup of waste in the disposer without it running. Ideally you'd turn on the water first, then start the disposer, then feed the waste in. Listen to the disposer running with waste in it. It sounds different when the waste inside is gone. Use this to get yourself used to keeping up with its pace. The problem with any disposer is that they work so fast, they can grind the waste faster than the water can carry it away.

Whatever you do, don't use a chemical unclogging product. Over time, this can damage the metal components of the disposer, and if you have to call a plumber, they will charge you extra because these chemicals make their equipment wear prematurely and can burn the skin.

If water doesn't drain, make sure the problem isn't fixed by simply turning the disposal on. If the water just swirls around, you'll probably need a plunger. When you want to use a plunger to unclog your disposal, the easiest way is to use suction more than pressure. When you push down on the plunger, the pressure from it will cause the backed-up waste to compress even further and make it impossible to push water down. You want to push the plunger down so that it "leaks" water out, and, when the plunger can be pushed down no farther, make sure it then has a good seal on the disposal's opening, and yank the plunger up pretty hard. This will pull the backed up waste back, mixing it with the water and will probably unclog the unit in only a couple strokes. Be careful not to soak yourself when pulling up on the plunger. In a pinch, a full soda can will actually form a seal and can be used in place of a plunger for disposals that have a splash guard made of one piece. If water is backed up into the other sink bowl, that means the clog is in the trap and not in the disposer itself. One way to fix this is to make sure the other bowl(s) of the sink are firmly stopped up. If you use a stopper you'll most likely have to push down hard on the stopper while plunging the disposer to form a good seal. If none of this helps, you may need to take apart the sink trap. This can be done by loosening the two nuts on the part of the drain pipe assembly shaped like a "U". You then may be able to clean the clog directly out of the u-bend or you may need to snake the pipes. If you take the pipes apart, have a bucket under there to catch the large amount of that will gush out.

When flushing , the bowl will not drain properly or fast enough to discharge the waste,also the bowl will not fill back up to the correct level with clean water, Acts as if there is some type of blockage...


It sounds like there is a buildup of waste at the top of the trap in the toilet. A closet snake should resolve the problem. You do not have to snake more than a couple of feet of the drain if the buildup is at the top of the trap which is always dry. Try the closet snake and a couple of buckets of hot water while flushing the bowl. Rigid makes a good closet snake and is worth the cost. After clearing, make it a habit of holding down the lever until you hear the tank empty when flushing down solids. Especially with the 1.6 gallon tanks.

I have an AC 30 and it does not appear that the local culligan dealer installed the flush line correctly as per the diagram in the owners manual. It shows the flush line coming off of the faucet assembly...


The flush rate is dependent on the Membrane used (IE: 16gpd, 35gpd, 50gallons per day), the TDS of the water, the amount of water used daily from the RO and the size of the storage tank. When the RO is creating water (depending on TDS) you will waste about 3 gallons for every gallon of product water. If the system is under the sink and drains directly to the DWV line then yes the drain should be run through the AIR GAP faucet to prevent cross contamination of the RO system.

How to drain dishwasher ?


There is a drain pump in the dish washer which takes care of the draining and unless it is faulty or clogged you will not have any water left behind.
Most of the time the residual food waste can seep into the drain and clogg the drain port/drain pump. you must remove the hose and the pump and flush out the dirt if you notice slow draining.

My culligan water filter makes a gurgle sound


The reverse osmosis faucet you have incorporates an AIR GAP to prevent cross contamination to the RO system. The waste water first goes up the to RO faucet AIR GAP and then goes to drain. The "gurgling noise" is the waste water going to drain. Some of these are much noisier than others.

A drain tube in the water dispensing module constantly has some water flow. What is the purpose of this drain and how can I eliminate the water loss.


A reverse osmosis system drinking water system will waste a certain amount of water for every gallon it produces.
1. The higher the TDS (total dissolved solids) the higher the ratio of waste water to product water.
IE: An RO on TDS of 1000ppm may require 7 or more gallons of water to waste to 1 gallon of product water. TDS of 100ppm will have about 3 gallons of waste to each gallon produced.
2. It also depends on the Membrane capacity. Membranes for residential RO systems come sized from 7-75 gallons per day. If you are a heavy water user and have a low producing membrane the RO may not shut off until it gets to rest at night and fill the tank.
3. There can also be a problem with the automatic shutoff on the RO. When the tank fills up and the pressure equalizes across the system the ASO (which is just a simple diaphram system) shuts the water off to the system.
4. If there is not enough pressure in the RO tank the tank may fill up but there may not be enough back pressure to shut the ASO off. So the waste and product water go down the drain and it runs constantly.

Waste blockage after flushing


MY EXPERIENCE WITH BLOCKAGE PROBLEMS IS: 1. THE WAX RING USED TO SEAL THE BASE HAS OOZED OUT AND REDUCED THE DIAMETER OF THE DRAIN. GET A CLOSET AUGER AND AUGER OUT THE TOILET. 2. FLOAT LEVEL SET IMPROPERLY. ADJUST THE FLOAT SO THE LEVEL OF THE WATER IS EVEN WITH THE WATER LINE MARK INSIDE THE TANK. HOPE THIS HELPS.

I never put potato peels in but in the 3 months I have owned this house it has stopped up twice. Why?


The problem should really have nothing to do with potato peels. Even a cheap disposer should have no problem chewing up things much worse than that.
There are two main things that could be causing your problem: 1. Defective disposer or improper installation 2. Improper usage of disposer (more likely)
I've been known to put entire sinkfulls of waste down the diposer (mine is an ancient thing from the 70s), and I've had a clog maybe once. You have to be conscious of the amount of water that's going down with the waste. Ideally, before anything solid at all goes down the drain you should turn the faucet on COLD full blast and then turn on the disposer. The grinding mechanism is so fast that the disposer shreds the solids and blows them into the drain pipe at a very high rate. If there's not enough water down there to get thrown down the drain pipe with the waste that's when a clog happens. So don't turn the disposer on AFTER putting a lot of waste down there and always do it with a full flow of cold water. Feed the disposer gradually with the waste and let it run until it sounds empty.
When done right, the worst clogs can easily be dispatched with a plunger in three or four strokes. With a toilet the best way to it make sure the plunger is sealed good and plunger with short, fast, powerful strokes. When you unclog a disposer, the clog is almost always in the connection where the disposer discharges into the drain pipe because of the funnel effect. When you push the plunger down the water pressure will go up but the waste will compact tighter and resist flow even more. You want to push the plunger down and let it leak until you get it as far down as possible, then let it form a good seal and give a powerful upward stroke. That'll create strong suction and pull the clump of waste particles back, where they'll mix with the excess water and go right down the drain. If you don't have a plunger, you'll find that for some reason a soda can will work in a pinch.
