SOURCE: Water leaking from underneath water tank.

I rang Saeco service centre about my leaking water tank and they posted me a new tank - no questions or need to return the faulty item. I believe there may be a bad batch of tanks which leak because of faulty valves.

SOURCE: Little Gourmet Hot water tank leaks out small hole in tank bottom

this is a condensate line and suprising enough most of the plumbers I go back after never hook them up they should have a hose off of them and led to a discharge area, if this is actually on the tank you will need to drain it and remove it and reseal it,

SOURCE: water leaking

Hi
If there is water on top of the machine when you remove the water tank, this is whats happening.
There is a seal on top of the machine under the water tank. To get to it, remove the water tank, and set aside. There is a large doughnut shaped cap on top of the machine. Slip a screwdriver on the outside edge of the cap and pry up gently. When it snaps up, go to the other side of the cap and do the same. There is a black seal in the center and if you stick your finger in the center and it lifts out it need to be replaced. Clean any residue inside the opening with a Q-tip.
When you get the new seal, it won’t slip in. Insert it at a slight angle (double lips down), then take your finger nail and run it around the bottom edge of the seal until it slips in, then push down. Snap the cap back on and your set to go.

SOURCE: water leaks from tank to bowl till water level in the tank is jus

Yes. You will have to remove your tank from the bowl to replace the defective fill stack(the tube thing your flapper is attached to) it is not as hard as it seems.First remove water supply tube.Then remove the through the tank bolts. should be two of them. Lift off and turn tank upside down. remove spud gasket. Unscrew old stack. You should be able to get a universal kit to work with your tank and should come with all new parts including new flapper and spud gasket. You will need new through the tank bolts and note the sequence of assembly to get water tight seal on tank. Hope this helps

Water does not shut off


This has 3 common reasons and easy fixes to each: 1, the stopper or flapper ball at the bottom where the water exits the tank may be worn or improperly seating on so the water keeps leaking down into the bowl. The tank will lose water, the supply will keep feeding the tank. Turn off the supply valve to the tank. It may help to apply a little petroleum jelly to the flapper ball to get a water-tight seal. If it's worn, replace it. If the water is running into the over-flow tube, you may be able to fix this by adjusting the water level by either turning a screw on the water supply assembly on some models, or by lowering the float ball or float coupling on the water supply stem assembly. If none of these seem to help, new inserts for tanks are easy to replace and relatively inexpensive.

Tank to bowl leaks


Turn water supply line of to toilet. Flush and hold handle down to drain water from tank. Take lid of tank off and use a towel to soak up the rest of the water inside tank. Remove nuts on bottom of Tank bolts. Lift off and lay down on its side. Remove the rubber or sponge type gasket that is on bottom of the tank that covers the nut from standpipe assembly. Buy new gasket and install back on bottom of tank over Nut for standpipe. Put tank back on toilet bowl. Install bolts and tighten. reconnect water line and turn on.

My toilet keeps leaking water and then fill ups on its own. Where could the leak be how do I fix it? Also I have to hold down the flush lever awhile for the toilet to completely flush. Can this be fixed ?...


If you are not getting puddles on the floor then it is probably the 'FLAP" that holds the water in the tank. It is the rubber part that is connected to your handle. Any hardware store will carry that part since it is an item that will fail, especially in hard water. It is probably the cause of both problems.

I have installed a Fluidmaster 403 G fill valve, flapper and tank lever to the water tank in my toilet. The tank fills OK but after several minutes the water in the tank has drained out I can not see...


if no leaks in tank. push down on flapper when it fills up. if water stops draining then it is the seal under flapper that is bad. you can lift up flapper and put patrolium jelly on bottom of flapper. this may just seal it. or it needs a certain type of flapper.

Tank wont refill after flushing.


The ball **** controls the water flow into the tank when flushed. If the float is stuck in the up position, the water will not fill the tank or the valve could be defective. If after pushing down the float and observing little or no water you need to replace the ball **** or the water valve is turned off. Turn the water off at the shutoff valve. Put a towel under the water supply hose and unscrew the water supply hose at the bottom of the ball ****. Drain any excess water at the bottom of the tank using a shop towel or paper towels ringing them out when they become saturated with water. Remove the ball **** and replace the old one with a new one available from a hardware store. Make sure to follow instructions on washer placement to avoid leaks. Replace the water supply hose and tighten snugly and be careful not to over tighten to crack any plastic. Turn on the water shutoff valve and adjust the float so the water stops at the tank water line.

Leaking water


It probably does need to be replaced IF it is leaking from the bottom. It MAY, however, be leaking at the top and just dripping down to the bottom. If it only leaks when you're filling the cup, then it probably is a top leak. These are generally easily fixed by getting a new slip-on connecter to connect the copper tube connecting the faucet to the nipple on the top of the tank. to remove the connector, push the rings on the ends of the connector (where the tube enter it) towards the other end. Buy the replacement at Home Depot or Lowes before starting to see how it works.
