Make sure the fill valve is not cracked,that's the long tower looking thing on the right side of the toilet when you stand in front of the unit. you can replace this part at homedepot. it is called a fluidmaster 400A.good luck.

Not sure on that toilet but you can fill a water bottle with the desired amount of water and then stick it in the tank thus tricking the toilet to put less water into the bowl with each flush. If you want more water though I am not sure how to do it.

Not flushing, bowl will not fill up with water

Hi rjhfp

Check inside of the tank to make sure the connector from the handle of the flusher to the "flapper valve" is connected, to do this you have to remove the tank lid.
If it is connected then you have a different problem.
Sounds like you have trash in the valve inside of the "ballcock assembly"
The ballcock assembly is the part that lets the water into the tank, and the "flapper valve" is the part that allows the water to flush into the bowl...
Replace you ballcock assembly and it will solve your problems.

How do I lower the level of the water in the tank so I do not use as much water per flush? I have a Pegasus 2 piece toilet thats about 2 years old

Hi there terminator,

Inside the tank, directly above where the water hose is attached, is the valve mechanism. Attached to this valve there is a float.

As the water level rises so does the float. When it get high enough, the float valve shuts off the water.

The idea is to lower the float so the water is turned off sooner.

If your model has a ball on a metal arm, it is as simple as bending the arm down a little bit.

Vertical cylinder types have adjustments on them.

Then there is the simplest solution which is to put a couple of bottles full of water in the tank to take up space. Therefore less water is needed to fill it...

Best regards

How can we stop our 1.5 year old pegasus dual flush toilet from continually running?

Remove the lid from the tank. Verify that the tank is full. Shut off the water to the tank, at the wall. Wait 5 minutes. If the level has fallen in the tank, the flapper valve in the bottom of the tank is the culprit. If the tank remained full, the issue is with either the fill valve assembly or the overflow tube.

I have a weak flushing toilet of this model. Water does not fill tank fast enough to create the weight of water needed to start a flush. I've looked in the tank while lifting the flap and see that as the...

From your description it sounds like the flushing orifices are plugged. The orifices are the little holes around the bowl or the big hole in the throat of some. A simple way to check if this is the problem is to get a bucket with aprox 2.5 gallons of water in it and pour it directly into the bowl and see if it goes right down. If it does, the orifices are plugged. Two of the most common causes of clogged orifices are hard water deposits and bowl cleaner cakes that drop in the tank. In the case of hard water deposits, we usualy acid clean the stool with muratic acid introduced through the flush valve. Be VERY careful when doing this, as the fumes are VERY dangerous and it can discolor colored porcilyn. May want to hire a plumber to do this. As for the cleaning cakes. You can pour some tap hot water through flush valve and dig into hole with wire hanger to remove as much as possible. I hope this helps.

Pegasus toilet tank will not refill

Most likely the washer came off and is stuck in the shut off valve or the float is stuck all the way up. Checkk adjustment screw in the top of the water control valve to make sure it is not turned all the way in.

sometimes if you change the flapper and add more water to the tank by adjusting the fill valve they will flush with more power
