I a word No!

You could drill a hole through the block (some are already pre drilled) put a bit of string through it and hang the block off the handle linkage.

    In hindsight you do mean a block in the cistern of the toilet not the actual macerator unit

MY TOILET FLUSH VALVE SEEMS TO BE CLOGED BUT I CLEANED IT IT WILL FLUSH BUT WONT FILL TANK YOU CAN HEAR WATER WANTING TO COME OUT PLEASE HELP


Hi Juan
Unfortunately we can't see what you can see. The problem must be right in front of you but you are missing it. Eg Parts / Seals in backwards.
If you can't figure it out and it's that urgent then call a plumber.
Good Luck

What is causing my toilet cistern to fill very slow?


The fill valve (operated by the float) may be clogged with sand or debris from inside the pipe. It's generally easier to replace a fill valve than it is to take it apart & clean it.

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.

Is it possible to replace just the cistern instead of the entire toilet set? I have had water leaking problem in my toilet. The water is running from cistern to the bowl whenever the cistern is fille


It is likely that the leakage is being caused by a worn-out flapper or seal (the part the flapper seats on). You can buy after-market kits that have replacement parts. What is the make and model of your toilet?

I have a toilet with a push button flush mechanism (allowing half or full flush). The toilet has a macerator behind it. If you flush the toilet and the macerator jams, the push button stays stuck in and...


This seems like a problem with your cistern and not your macerator - I have a similar set up and if your push button is stuck you need to check the mechanism in the cistern - also you should have an overflow that drains into your loo within the cistern so you should check this for blockages as well.

It is blocked how do i unblock it


Turn off electricity to saniflo.Turn off water to toilet (normally an inline valve). Empty toilet bowl and cistern of water. Remove toilet, cistern. Disconnect inlet pipes to saniflo (careful as backed up water will flow out!).

Take out Saniflo (outside is normally good). Open up top with star driver and use a flat blade for the plastic retaining flaps.Be sure to wear rubber gloves to keep out germs from cuts etc on your hands.

Cover mains cables with plastic food bag and tape up. Use a solution of bleach / warm water, fill up the sanifo and leave for a while. Swish around and empty into a drain etc. I also use a hosepipe to make sure I get it really clean (esp under motor and float switch). Also check inlet pipe flappy bit and the actual pipes that connect to the saniflo

Good luck

After cistern refill outflow into toilet bowl continues to dribble in - and you can see a slight flow into the bowl and every so often we hear the cistern refilling a small amount to compensate.

When cistern fills with water it leaks into the bowl


Hi,

This is caused by the 'syphon' mechanism sticking, quite often nowadays the 'brilliant' plastic push button/ syphon combo sticks, and most toilets are fitted with an internal overflow, lift the lid on the cistern and check for anything causing an obstruction.

More often than not, it's a tiny bit of scale that causes such a headache, and the fact that nothing is made with any quality nowadays!

If you can't see what's wrong call a plumber, he/she will solve it.

I hope this helps
