My BGR75 water pump has become quite loud and seems to be taking a bit longer to replenish the toilet cistern from my rainwater tank. Does this mean it is doomed, or just in need of some attention?

Probably needs some attention. Try removing the algae from the water tank.

Can low water pressure cause my toilet cisterns to keep running


NO
persistent running is problem valve washers either in the water level control or the flush washer under the press buttons
low pressure will take a longer time to fill but when the level is attained the water will stop flowing in

Water running into the bowl after flush and refil


IT SEEMS TO ME THAT THE BALL-**** (FLOAT SWITCH) IN THE CISTERN IS SET TOO HIGH UP. THERE ARE MANY DIFFERENT MODELS BUT ALL SHOULD BE EASILY ADJUSTED. HAVE A LOOK INSIDE THE CISTERN AND ADJUST THE FLOAT SO THAT THE WATER STOPS AT A LOWER LEVEL. IF THE WATER IS CONTINUOSLY FLOWING INTO THE CISTERN WHEN FULL YOU MIGHT NEED A NEW INLET WASHER

Water level is too low to flush solids properly Where is there an adjustment?


That would be in your Cistern - change the level of water being allowed into the bowl by screwing the plastic grub screw on the float valvle in the cistern. There is normally a level indicator on the cistern as to where the water should be sitting.

If this level is correct and the solids still dont flush properly then I am not sure what else you could do. Did this problem always exist, or has it just started? (could indicate that it is gunked up inside if it was OK before)

Good luck

It is blocked how do i unblock it


Turn off electricity to saniflo.Turn off water to toilet (normally an inline valve). Empty toilet bowl and cistern of water. Remove toilet, cistern. Disconnect inlet pipes to saniflo (careful as backed up water will flow out!).

Take out Saniflo (outside is normally good). Open up top with star driver and use a flat blade for the plastic retaining flaps.Be sure to wear rubber gloves to keep out germs from cuts etc on your hands.

Cover mains cables with plastic food bag and tape up. Use a solution of bleach / warm water, fill up the sanifo and leave for a while. Swish around and empty into a drain etc. I also use a hosepipe to make sure I get it really clean (esp under motor and float switch). Also check inlet pipe flappy bit and the actual pipes that connect to the saniflo

Good luck

The toilet was installed under the stairs a year ago and has hardly been used - the bowl keeps filling after flushing and overflows, I cant shut it off. It flooded the down stairs twice now - all over...


Take the lid off the cistern tank and have a look. There is a ( usually ) round float ball in there. This is what is causing it. When the cistern fills up the ball is supposed to float up and the arm it attaches to shuts off the water, usually at the opposite end to the float.
Turn the tap on the pipe to the cistern so it is nearly off and move the arm up and down by hand. See what it is getting stuck on or what is happening.

If it is not a simple sticking problem, you may need to undo the top of the cistern valve itself ( opposite end to the ball. )
Turn the water off completely to the cistern to do this or you will get squirted. :)
They are fiddly little valves and all a bit different but if you take your time and make sure you have a good light you will be able to work out what has been happening.
Hope this is some help.

Water overflow from cistern to bowl after flushing the water keeps going into the bowl where is the water shut off valve on these toilets?


The shut off valve depends upon where your plumber fitted it and whether one was installed at all. If there's not one near the cistern then you'll need to find the stop valve which is on either the main household cold water tank outlet or if the cistern is filled directly by mains water then you'll need to turn off the main supply valve or even the valve in the street.

The fault is caused by a failed syphon assembly inside the cistern. Although it's possible to remove the faulty part and replace it the sheer number of different syphon assembly designs and the age of many of them usually mean that it's quicker and simpler to replace the entire assembly. Without knowing exactly which make and model of syphon you have it's impossible to give you any more specific details as the operating methods vary so widely, but if you're mechanically minded then you may well find that you can dismantle the old syphon and locate the failed seal. Sometimes all you need to repair them is an old car tyre inner tube and a pair of scissors. A repair often costs pennies and takes hours, a complete replacement syphon assembly often costs between £13 and £60 depending on the model and design (plus labour) but usually takes no more than around fifteen to twenty minutes to replace if the cistern is close-coupled to the toilet and a bit longer if it's an old-fashioned high level cistern with restricted access.

Given the need for guesswork based on the limited details in your question I hope that you appreciate my reply and ask only that you return the favour by rating my answer.

When cistern fills with water it leaks into the bowl


Hi,

This is caused by the 'syphon' mechanism sticking, quite often nowadays the 'brilliant' plastic push button/ syphon combo sticks, and most toilets are fitted with an internal overflow, lift the lid on the cistern and check for anything causing an obstruction.

More often than not, it's a tiny bit of scale that causes such a headache, and the fact that nothing is made with any quality nowadays!

If you can't see what's wrong call a plumber, he/she will solve it.

I hope this helps
