Why doesn't the waste go all the way down? It takes several flushes.


Welcome to our new world of water conservation. If you have a toilet that isn't newer....you have something in your trap weir. Or your flapper is malfunctioning. Or your float valve isn't filling your tank correctly. Or your bowl scouring ports could be clogged. There are sooo many things that could cause this....
.New toilets do this because their design to use less water has reached the point of no-longer working to clear the bowl contents. Plain and simple. It has became the norm to flush once for #1's and flush (how ever many it takes to flush all waste) for #2's.
Back to old styles...You can remove the tank top and inspect the water level in the tank(should be about a 1/2" below overflow tube when full), inspect the flapper(flush the toilet and see if your flapper is staying up long enough to allow enough water to enter the bowl to cause a syphon action that ends with a suction sound and complete emptying of the water from the bowl), flush your toilet and look in the bowl to see if the water spraying from your rim is adequately dispensing water to scour the sides of the bowl, and also look at the jet that shoots water from the bottom of the bowl...aimed toward the outlet portion of the very bottom of the interior bowl. This jet is what starts the syphon action that empties your bowl. If you have something stuck in your trap weir....you probably need to call your Plumber to auger the object out or break it down to a size that will pass into the sewer.
The small ports that spray your sides can be cleared with a 3/16" stiff nylon brush...the jet down below can be cleared with a 1" stiff nylon brush. Flapper malfunction is repaired by replacing the flapper. Incorrect water level in the tank can be fixed by adjusting the valve float. but chances are that if it is all of a sudden malfunctioning...it probably needs to be replaced...good luck and always know how to turn your water off before starting work on your plumbing.
Be gentle with the parts inside your toilet tank. Using a calcium remover when clearing bowl inner ports and jets will help tremendously....but be certain to read the container and follow all handling/use instructions you read. Be careful.....Nick

Saniflo toilet needs more than one flush to clear the bowl from toilet paper etc.


If it is going out slowly, get large containers of hot water and flush until it goes out faster. It may take several containers but hot water works wonders and doesn't cost much.

Need to increase bowl water level. how do I do that


Step 1:

Remove the top lid of the tank, ...carefully, so as not to break the ceramic by dropping it on the floor accidentally. Inside exists a "lever" attached to a "float" acting as a "fulcrum," with the "float" resting on the level of the water in the tank. The more water in the tank, the more water will enter the bowl, at flushing time.

Step 2:

The level of water in the tank corresponds to the level of water entering the system upon flushing the commode (bathroom fixture). At the bottom of the tank exists a "flap" type of device (usually). As the water exits the tank into the bowl the flap seals off again, discontinuing the water's entry into the bowl. This should always seal off at the end of a "fllushing cycle." The more water in the tank at the beginning of the flush, the more will enter the bowl.

Step 3:

Therefore, raise the arm of the "lever" (sometimes it's a "vertical" post with an "adjustable float" on it; in what case one raises the float on the post, by depressing a "clip" like device on the float itself, sliding it up versus down) by bending the arm upward, ...carefully. The increased water in the "tank" by the above process should solve your problem. Be certain to note whether the "flap" closes prematurely (It shouldn't), adjusting the flap's "chain" (held up by the "handle" itself) should it close prematurely.

Step 4:

You may need to tighten the "nut" (fastener) on the "handle" inside the tank as the "chain/flap" may simply be closing prematurely, because it's "loose" (easily tightened by hand at times, versus with a small, adjustable wrench bought at a "hardware store" like "Ace Hardware").

Step 5:

The above items (one, versus several of them), should solve your problem.

I have a porcher sandpiper toilet and there is constantly water running inside the bowl at the back.


A few things to check look in the tank make sure nothing is blocking the flapper at the bottom thats the thing that lets the water drain into the bowl if it is clear check make sure the chain or line that connects the flush handle to the flapper is not kinked causing it to hold the flap up enough to let the water drain. If these are ok sometimes sediments will make the float device, whether its a ball or a canister type to stick reach in and lift the floater if the water stops then adjust the floater some have a screw on the canisters to adjust some an arm some the whole mechanism shaft screws up and down to adjust if its the ball hold the metal arm firm next to the base and bend it slightly down on the other end so the ball goes further into the water so when you release it lifts it up better don't bend to much check and bend more if you need to. If its a ball make sure water is not getting into it by feeling if so replace it. If none of these work you can replace the whole thing for around $20 just turn the water off flush the tank get all the excess water out and go to town its not hard make sure you have pipe tape and if you don't know about the tape ask the hardware dealer to explain how it goes on just a couple wraps. The hardware store can help you pick the one you need tell them what yours looks like and they can help find a replacement.

Super low water level in bowl decreases after flush refills


First, fyi, adjusting the knob? in the tank, or the fill level will not increase the amount of water in the bowl. The bowl fills to a certain point, and then as more water is added it starts to go over the built in trap, and down the drain. When you flush the toilet, all the water in the tank dumps into the bowl, and the existing water is pushed over the trap and down the drain. All of this being said it sounds like you may either have an internal crack, between the bowl and trap; you may have a crack that is draining under your toilet, (water spots?), or you have a more serious plumbing issue, improper venting, which is causing a vacuum, and pulling the water out. Hope this helps.
