Open the flapper and let the water out and then soak the rest with a towel.

SOURCE: valve in dometic vt2500 toilet won't close

You might want to try and lubricate the rubber gasket with some silicone grease or plumbers grease. If that doesn't work, follow this link. I'm sure there is information for your toilet at the Dometic website. http://www.dometic.com/enus/Americas/USA/Customer-Support/

You need to replace the fill valve with a oem replacment valve. You need to use toto parts.

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: toilet wont flush completely. it may take 4 times

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.

My toilet flushes, then the water in the bowl drains over 4-5 minutes resulting in sewer gas smells.


Look inside the tank under the lid, it sounds like the flapper that lets the water into the bowl is getting hung up on something when you flush. It could be the flushing lever. This would cause the flapper to stay open letting water to just pour into the open sewer line. It should be a simple fix. Just see what is binding the flapper & make an adjustment.

I had the same issue wit my champion toilet the issue was finally resolved by using a plastic drain snake and cleaning out the flush tube at bottom of drain (1" hole at bottom of drain facing toward front of toilet) mine was restricted down to 1/2" "bad casting I think"

My toto neorest 500 "burps" when I flush but the water does not go down


The problem may be in the venting of the toilet. If the vent for the toilet is plugged or in the northern climates frosted shut the air in the toilet drain has nowhere to go when displaced by the flushing water so it backs up through the toilet and causes the "burping" you mentioned. Hope this helps.

Flush ball sticking dometic toilet


Actually, it's the flush valve that's not closing. The ball operates the valve. In some cases the valve needs to be replaced; in others, the ball has absorbed water and is unable to close the valve completely.

Just hooked up new pressure asist tank & bowl,turned on water to it,and it want flush.what i mean about want flush, is it will flush but water does'nt go down,as if it's not staying open long enough.


Sounds like you have a clogged drainline or vent-stack. Fill a large bucket with about three gallons of water and dump it quickly into the bowl. If the drainline/vent is clear, the toilet will "flush" like a gravity toilet and the water will drain from the bowl almost as fast as you can pour it in.

If the water level in the bowl slowly rises (as if it's about to overflow) and then slowly drains, you have a clog somewhere.

All toilets, regardless of their flushing mechanism, require a clear, unoibstructed drain/waste/vent system to extract waste.

If the toilet "flushes" with the bucket of water, you may want to call Flushmate tech support (the number is on top of the tank) or check out the installation and troubleshooting videos at howto.flushmate.com.

Hope this helps.

When toilet is flushed the water in the bowl is sucked out


your drain may be plugging up, when you flush the 2nd time, the 1st bowl of water did not go all the way down, and the second flush lands on top of it. check drain.

My Eljer toilet does not always flush completely. It is approximately 20 years old. I don't believe that it is a venting problem. I have dismounted, inspected and remounted the toilet and found nothing...


Not being a plumber by trade I don't want to bad mouth what your plumber had to say but there may be other things to consider.
If the toilet does not flush directly into the main drain there is the possibilty that the coupling between the main drain and the toilet drain is under-sized which could cause reduced water flow and your toilet not flushing completely.

When I flush toilet wht water swirls and flushes,


check the water level in the tank, if you do not have enough water it will give problems flushing. if the level is low there are two different adjustments you can make on the float and valve to get the required water level to get an efficent flush.
