My Jacuzzi toilet is making a foghorn sound after flushing. I read in FAQ to close the fill valve slightly but I don't know how to do this. Please help.


IF there is a valve on the water line in the toilet close this off it should turn clockwise to slow down the pressure

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

The toilet won't flush out I have changed the flapper and float but won't flush out the bowl


I am not familiar with the term flapper. I don't think our toilet cisterns use a flapper.

All the cisterns I have seen work by a syphon action and mostly the only thing that goes wrong with them is the thin polythene disc buried inside the syphon. The disc lays across a hollow piston and the linkage lifts the piston to begin the syphon action and the flush.

There are a few designs of push-button cisterns designed to be more economic on water which I haven't yet seen the inside of but I expect they too will work on a syphon principle - in the absence of a pump how else could it work?

in almost every case of a syphon not working (assuming everything is more or less as it should be) is air getting in somewhere and preventing the mechanism lifting the head of water to begin the syphon.

Sorry I can't help further.

Why is my derwent macdee cistern not flushing properly and solids not going away?


Hi anon the toilet probably needs the syphon changing. The syphon causes the push down the pan for the solids to go.

I have a push button flush on my toilet but the flush is getting less powerful and we have to wait ages before it will flush again despite the water level filling quickly????


Sounds like the syphon unit has scaled up. You can try flushing with a descaler fluid a couple of times to see if that will loosen the scale but otherwise replace the plastic syphon within the system. Cheap part, relatively easy fix if you know bit about plumbing. Confidence is the key.

Very loud foghorn sound


Loud rumbling noises are often caused by either water boiling in the burner or by entrapped air in the system. To help prevent water boiling make sure that the boiler system has a pressure between 15 - 30 psi. Also check for sufficient water flow and remove any sediment from the in-line filter. To remove entrapped air, install an automatic or manual air vent at the highest point in the heating system and also make sure you have a properly working micro-air vent installed. With the unit turned off and cooled down, you can also try flipping the lever on the pressure relief valve to try and flush out any air in the heat exchanger . Hope this helps.
