I have just bought and installed the newbury close couple tiolet but when i flush it there is water leaking from the bottom of the cistern, but it only happens when i flush it any hlp would be great.

Tightened all bolts and fush system to the cystern, checked for cracks in cystern its self, applied aditional downward pressure onto cystern so wing nuts could be tightened.

You need the proper wax ring to seal the toilet to the flange. Remove the toilet and check the wax ring. If it isn't compressed, get a spacer and a thicker ring.

SOURCE: what could be the cause

Hello, W/D here.

Most probably, the tank-to-bowl gasket has not seated properly. They are usually neoprene, and tend to bight on the bowl socket rather than to slide into the socket where it can be compressed properly. Remove the tank bolts and look at the gasket. Re-install, using a water based lubricant on the bowl side, with the gasket installed on the tank flange. Wiggle the tank and gasket back and forth a few times, and the gasket will start properly into the cast socket on the bowl. Install the bolts and tighten to finger tight. Wiggle the tank a bit more, and level the top. Tighten the bolts uniformly.
You mention that the flush valve was hand tightened only. If this gasket is not snug (a bit more than hand tight), a leak can occur there as well.
Best regards, --W/D--

SOURCE: I have a problem with

Hi keithn60...

I had the same problem one time with my toilet tank, the answer is to put some silicone on the seal washer between the take and bowl assembly and to use a level on the tank to tighten it just enough to be level and not leak.
Please take time to rate me

Tip

FIXING A TOILET THAT WILL NOT FLUSH!!! a simple but very effective money saving...


This simple how to, is based upon most lever operated toilets, with the cistern mounted above the toilet bowl. The make and model of toilet used for this feature is of the following:
Toilet and internal syphon
DUDLEY ELITEDudley S7 Cascade syphon
Problem:
My toilet will not flush, but the ball float valve is working and there is water in the cistern; no leaks present and the flushing lever is not broken or disconnected, what do I do?
Answer:
first isolate the water to the toilet or the main water supply to the house. Bail out the water from the cistern using a small jug or cup, (or you can syphon the water manually using a hosepipe or similar pipe, a towel to cover your mouth, and either a bucket or the toilet bowl) and remove water from the bottom of the cistern with a sponge.


Changing the syphon in a toilet that is not close coupled is far easier as you do not need to remove the cistern from the wall!


Undo the lower of the two large nuts beneath the cistern using a large pipe wrench or pair of water pump pliers, now disconnect the flush pipe and push it to one side.
Place a bucket or bowl beneath the cistern and undo the Nut which is immediately below the cistern (syphon replacing nut), some water may be released by the syphon, take note of any washers that are removed as new ones need fitting when replacing the siphon.
Unhook the lift rod from the flushing lever and remove the syphon.


Inside the toilet syphon, there will be a small plastic piece of sheet called a diaphragm; you can fabricate a replacement using the plastic title cover on a DVD case. Cut this to the exact same size and shape as the original part, and fit this to where the original diaphragm was. This is your new replacement.


Refitting is a complete reversal of removal, be sure to fit any washers (preferably new ones) that you have taken out. Ensure everything is tight but do not over tighten before refilling the cistern

Twyford dual flush cistern


replace the whole control unit
There may be 2 problems
the small washer that shuts off the water flow when the level is reached may be swollen and not sealing properly
the section at the bottom has cracked at a thread level
so by replacing the unit you will eliminate both problems
to remove the unit, turn off the water tap, flush the system, holding the button down until all of the water has gone
remove the inlet pipe at the bottom of the cistern
undo the retaining nut under the cistern and lift the control unit out
there will be water in the bottom of the cistern so use old towels on the floor to soak up the water that will run out

Just installed a newbury toilet and we can't get the cistern to fill without taking the lid off everytime and manually pushing down the lever. Then we have to lift it again when the cistern is full....


One of the flush buttons is pushing on the valve keeping the seal up. Not sure how the Newbury flush button opperates the valve but you need to shorten the push rod if it uses a rod or lengthen the chain if it uses a chain. Why are you asking this in the stroller section?

Tiolet won't flush = water swirls but won't fully flush.


Mine does this too, from time to time. I've found that it usually means there's a plug somewhere down the line that you can't reach with a coathanger. Since I keep forgetting to buy a plunger, I use a johnny mop to vigorously poke in and out of the bottom hole until most of the water in the bowl is gone. After doing that, a couple flushes usually clears the line.

If that doesn't work, you'll probably need to use a snake on it.
