SOURCE: our Porcher veneto 1 piece toilet does not flush. Does porcher have recommended repair service near zip code 94901 ?

I have three of these beautiful babies from when I redid my bathrooms back in the early 2000s -- and one of them started to leak (would keep flowing a small amount into the bowl after filling the tank), so I did some online sleuthing and came across the parts as well as the how-to for a complete rebuild of the critical parts -- and rebuilt all three and they work like new. I am in zip code 94552 so if you need help from a licensed general contractor -- give me a call at 510-909-8813 and I can see if I can fix it for you (for a charge, of course).

How do i tighten soft close toilet seat on a porcher cygnet, with no underneath access to bolts.


There is usually a plastic nut that goes on the bottom and has a wing on it that will catch when you tighten the plastic bolt from above.

Adjust water level in in-wall Italian toilet cistern


It could be your flushing mechanism inside the tank that is letting the water in even after the flush. First flush and watch the bottom mechanism whether it blocks completely when water is full in the tank at set level and no more water flows.

I have a porcher sandpiper toilet and there is constantly water running inside the bowl at the back.


A few things to check look in the tank make sure nothing is blocking the flapper at the bottom thats the thing that lets the water drain into the bowl if it is clear check make sure the chain or line that connects the flush handle to the flapper is not kinked causing it to hold the flap up enough to let the water drain. If these are ok sometimes sediments will make the float device, whether its a ball or a canister type to stick reach in and lift the floater if the water stops then adjust the floater some have a screw on the canisters to adjust some an arm some the whole mechanism shaft screws up and down to adjust if its the ball hold the metal arm firm next to the base and bend it slightly down on the other end so the ball goes further into the water so when you release it lifts it up better don't bend to much check and bend more if you need to. If its a ball make sure water is not getting into it by feeling if so replace it. If none of these work you can replace the whole thing for around $20 just turn the water off flush the tank get all the excess water out and go to town its not hard make sure you have pipe tape and if you don't know about the tape ask the hardware dealer to explain how it goes on just a couple wraps. The hardware store can help you pick the one you need tell them what yours looks like and they can help find a replacement.

My Mansfield toilet flushes but only 1/3 of the water in the tank flows out during a flush and the bowl does not get enough water to flush everything.


Check the water level int he tank for it coming up to fill line in tank. Make sure the 1/4 " fill line from the fill valve is connected and in the stand pipe tube to allow water to fill bowl. Fluid master makes a flapper that has adjustments on it to increase or decrease water used to flush. It has a dial to move on it this would be another option if the above tried doesn't help.

Thansk and I hope this will help you with this problem.

I have a Porcher one-piece toilet with a bad gasket. How do I take it apart and replace the gasket?


if you are talking about the wax ring you remove the floor mounting bolts and replace the wax ring under it. first you want to shut water off then flush to empty tank and with a wet dry vac remove any water left . now you can remove it without any mess.

Increase water in toilet tank-low flush Toto toilet


Yes adjust the float level to raise the amount of water in the tank, If you have a float that is a ball around the tank you will have to turn the water off and remove the hose from the tank and remove the nut then pull the water float device out and you will see a clap on the bottom of the float you will turn the float base so that it gets longer, increase it by two inchess so that you increase water flow. Reinstall into the tank hook it all back up and leave the lid off turn on the water and watch the water level rise be sure the float shuts the water off before it over flows, if it starts to over flow then fush it to bring the water down giving you enought time to shut off the water valve.
There is a problem adding low water systems to older septic systems. The septic pipe settles in the ground over time and may cause a ~~~ in the pipe thus causeing blockage. For future reference you can add a one gallon bottle of water in the tank like a milk jug or a used up bottle of puerified water that you have drank and this will decrease it by one gallon per flush. Hope this helps. If you need more asstance just posttothis reply!

Increasing water flow rate


Back-flush the machine regularly and check your water hookup and make sure you to not have a small diameter water line. Other than that it is controlled by the water pump I believe. If the solenoid (the silver thing attached to the pump) used to start the pump is old it could slow down the pump start cycle.
