Perhaps it is taking a long time to fill the cistern, take top off and see if it's filling after flushing, if it's slow and pressure is ok it is likely to need a new diaphragm in the filling valve.

SOURCE: Toto Toilet - no water flow to refill tank after flush

Remove the tank lid and look at the fill valve. Is it a yellow valve?
This fill valve is common on the Toto Toilets and can easliy plug with debrie.

They can be disassmbled and cleaned. however, I usually just replace the valve with Fluid Master Fill valve.
You will also want to check the water coming into the toilet by turning off the water that supplies the toilet and disconnecting the water supply line. After removing the water supply line turn on the water at the valve to make sure that the water is flowing properly. Check the supply line also to make sure it is not plugged.
Be sure and place a small container to catch the water that will come from the valve. A towell will also help from making too much of a mess.
If the Supply line and the valve are clear the problem is in the fill valve.
The G-Max system denotes the Flushiing system which is a 3" flapper that allows the water from the tank to flow into the bowl quicker.
Good Toilets!

SOURCE: New American Standard Flowise toilet won't flush

You have a sewer issue....it is entirely possible for other things to cause the toilet to loose water as they drain....but only if there is a sewer problem.....that is why there is an air gap between the toilet and the tank...(the trap) now I have been in this industry 35 years and the jet you speak of is in the bottom of the toilet that directs and forces flow down and out of the bowl as do the many small holes on the underside of the bowl lip ( I suspect ...as I have seen it MANY MANY time in the paste) that your old bowl may have had lots of calcium or lime build up (using lime a away occasionally helps) in the holes under the lip as well as other places...which reduces water flow and there by reduces pressure......but what you are describing is definitely sewer related....other water sources causing water to drain...bubbles...etc..I had a similar problem that occurred about once every 2 years in one of my homes...I had a tree root growing into my sewer line ...it would flush but on occasion...debris would get caught and a good plunging would help...but eventually...(twice) I had to rent a 3/4 inch snake from Time Rental...with a cutter head on it and remove the problem. Now your problem sounds exactly like an air gap problem...in that an overflow or something related is causing a vacuum assist when large amounts of water are drained...(ie...tub...washer...).as this happens the force the water carries and the lack of access to air in the flow causes vacuum "tugs" on other water sources attached to the sewer....take of your clean-out cover (usually in the back of the house and if you see water standing in it ....sewer problem....also you can have someone flush the toilet and eyeball the sewer/overflow...to see how it drains.

I hope this helps....good luck...thank you for rating my effort...the Fang.

SOURCE: Kohler Cimarron elongated comfort height toilet not flushing correctly

low water in the bowl is only caused by the float being to high! the gurgles is Usually because of air coming back up through the pipe, check your vent pipe that come out the roof. this will help the draining.

SOURCE: toilet keeps filling tank every 10 minutes

If there is no water on the floor then the water is leaking down the main tank drain. Take off the tank lid, turn off the water supply to the toilet. Fllush as much water out as you can. Look at the main drain, sometimes if the flapper valve is connected with a chain, the chain can get caught between the flapper valve and the drain hole, the flapper valve is pliable so it tries to seal around the obstruction but can't always do it. Make sure there is obstruction, that the flapper valve is not out of shape or old and non-pliable and that it lines up with the drain hole and doesn't get "hung up" on anything.

SOURCE: My toilet does not flush properly. It seems to

You might check under the rim of the toilet, there are about 12 little holes that when you flush water comes out to start the most important part of the flush. The swrill, with out it hard to flush. Talk a piece of wire hanger ( I know "NO WIRE HANGERS") and use it to push up into the holes. Hard water deposits sometimes build up there.

I have a uberhaus dual flush toilet. I turned off the water supply in the house to work on a sink and when I turned it back on the toilet won't fill anymore. If I fill the tank or the bowl it will flush...


You will have to disassemble the fill valve and clean it. When you shut the water off and on to work on the sink it dislodged dirt and scale in the water piping which clogged the toilet fill valve. Check your lavatory sink areators too they may also be partially plugged. Hope this helps.

Uberhaus dual flush toilet keeps running


The flapper may not be seating properly after a flush. Even though you say the toilets are brand new, something may be askew in the flushing assembly or may have been affected during installation

Toilet when flushed makes a large bubble surface from the hole. Sometimes the toilet will not flush away a bit of tissue.... very frustrating..


Have you checked it out for any blockage in the toilet or drain line.

You could try a 6ft auger to try to remove blockage from toilet.
If it is a drain issue it is either blocked somewhere or the vent is not working correctly causing it to get air bubbles.

Check you tank for proper water fill level up to marked line. Also make sure fill line from fill valve is connected to overflow pipe to fill bowl up correctly.

Not enough water in tank will affect the flush.

Toilet wont flush completely. it may take 4 times or more to flush solids. i at first thought this was related to heavy rains we had been receiving in the area over a period of about 4 months. 2 days...


there is no air release. the vent must be clogged somewhere. you can take a hose up there and see if it drains all the way or floods over. since the tub drain has a trap and the toilet itself is a trap, there has to bee a good amount of air pressure coming up without a release. i would say an obstruction. possibly at the junction of the main and the vent.
