You can get a different length pipe from a plumbers supply shop
check the height of the new cistern and you may get it right by turning the pipe around so that the longer section goes to the pan but the cistern may have to be fitted a bit lower
the pipe doesn't have to go into the hole in the pan as the rubber seal takes care of a small difference in length

Need to remove cover over water cisten

Water leaks from toilets are common on the seal behind the pan. Have a look where the pipe runs from the cistern to the back of the pan. There is a rubber flange gasket which fits over the spout on the back of the pan. These are common to split. The toilet will leak normally when you flush it. After flushing, the leak stops.

How to fit seal on fluidmaster flush valve

before you replace the seal: inspect the bottom seal by running your finger around and inside the rim. not likely but could be a burr. If the seal is OK, install a new flapper bulb. while the old one may look fine, the rubber may have hardened and thus will no longer seal properly. It's an easy fix, just be sure to get the correct replacement bulb. AND/OR, buy some silicon plumber's grease. A small container costs $3 or so. Spread the grease on the bulb and the seal-rim; where the two pieces meet to form the seal. Should provide a better seal.

I've bought a Blanco 1.5 bowl sink. It came supplied with a universal odour trap and waste kit. I'm struggling to figure out how to fit them both without cutting some of the plastic pipe. Any...

Generally you often have to trim some of the plastic drain pipe to get things to fit in your particular situation. Just be sure to cut the end that goes into the compression fitting, Don't cut an end that has threads or a rim on it. Cut the pipe carefully with a saw or better yet a hacksaw. It enjoys cracking and will do so if given half a chance. The good news is it is chap and available at every hardware store. So cut and trim away just leave enough so that it will fit a good 1 1/4 inch plus into the other pipe. Hope this helps

After flushing the macerator kicks in OK but doesn't deal with all the poo.It will take about 3-4 flushes for it all to disappear.Asked plumber who fitted unit about this he said it was due to the smaller...

Typically this will have if the pump is either not vented at all or lack of air flow on the vent pipe. Most of this units have an 1 1/2" vent connection on top of the lid which should be vented to the open air to allow air to flow in and out of the vent pipe at all times. If you already have a vent pipe connected, disconnect it from the top of the lid and leave the vent connection open to the room so air can flow in and out, then flush the toilet, one flush should get rid of all the solids. Also check the rim of the bowl, water should enter evenly all around the rim of the bowl. If you see more water on one side than the other, then could be calcium build up or an obstruction inside the rim of the bowl.

Bowel cleaning

Check the ports under the rim and make sure they are not clogged. To do this you can use a nail or pin to clean them out.
Right under the rim of the bowl are these ports that allow the water to flow into bowl in a turning motion to aid in flushing and cleaning wall's of the bowl.
Inside the tank check the fill tube and make sure it is connected from the fill valve to the over flow tube. Also check the fill level in the tank and make sure water is up to the line on the fill tube about 5/8" from top of tube.

This error indicates an obstruction in the water pump. . Tip machine back so you can fit a bowl under the bottom right hand side. Flip back cover at bottom right to reveal pump filter access - unscrew (quite a bit of water comes out so have the bowl ready).

How to install tub spout for delta model 174924 shower assembly

Normally, tub spouts are screwed onto 1/2" NPT galvanized pipe. I was unable to pull the spec for your particular tub filler, but I haven't found one yet that doesn't. I don't know why the builder didn't rough it in this way, but it will have to be fixed because there isn't any way to use anything but a threaded fixture (your other options are really only compression or soldered/sweated and you don't have the space behind the tub filler to do either of these). There should be a fitting in the wall (attached to a stud) that converts from the 1/2" copper pipe to 1/2" NPT galvanized. This piece needs to be added behind the wall so that you can attach your tub filler.

About the gap, it's generally a good idea to leave space around the pipe anyway so that minor temperature or humidity changes in the wall don't put stress on your plumbing and cause it to crack over time. That's one of the reasons why tub fillers are flared at the back (so that it covers the gap).

Fuel Leak from the Carburetor

Remove the water trap bowl at the bottom of the petcock, (gas valve). Is there any water or trash in the bowl? Dump it, clean it and re-mount it, ( not all bikes have a water trap bowl ).

Drain the carburetor. There should be a screw on the lower side of the carb float bowl. Remove the screw then replace it after the fuel drains. Turn the gas back on and wait a minute for the carb to fill with gas. If the bike doesn't start and run properly then shut off the gas and remove the carburetor from the engine.

Remove the float bowl and clean the entire carb with a spray carb cleaner from the auto parts store. Wear protective goggles to avoid getting spray in your eyes. Spray into all the little airways and fittings in the carb. Check the float as they can go bad and fill with gas such that they no longer float. Remove the idle screw and the air screw on the outside throat of the
carb and spray into the screw holes as well.
Be sure to put these two screws back in the same hole they came out of. IMPORTANT > do not tighten these two screws down. Only screw these in until they LIGHTLY seat. Now turn each screw one and one half turns outward. Put the rest of the
carb back together, clean the air filter and install the carb. Let the float bowl fill then start the engine. The idle speed will probably different so adjust the idle screw to get back to where it was. This process should get you back on the road.

Please rate this solution. Thanks!

Bottom rail fit on 1500D door in 28" shower stall...

Mark, I'm having different problems with the same door. Try "filing" down the ends of the bottom rail, where it is contacting the curved corners. You might have to buy a metal file to accomplish this. Go heavy on the adhesive caulk on the underside of the bottom rail. Make sure the shower base is clean and dry. You might have to push down with your arms for several minutes to get the adhesive caulk to stick. Good luck, I have to go back to my folks this afternoon, because I can't get the door panel in w/o it scraping the top rail. Ugh.
