SOURCE: tiolet won't flush = water swirls but won't fully flush.

Mine does this too, from time to time. I've found that it usually means there's a plug somewhere down the line that you can't reach with a coathanger. Since I keep forgetting to buy a plunger, I use a johnny mop to vigorously poke in and out of the bottom hole until most of the water in the bowl is gone. After doing that, a couple flushes usually clears the line.

If that doesn't work, you'll probably need to use a snake on it.

SOURCE: blocked phone through imei nokia n95 8gb

You have to contact your service provider .

The IMEI (serial number) block on the phone, which stops it being used with a different SIM card, this may take up to 48hours to clear.

Please try to contact Customer Services of your provider. They will help to get you back and running.

SOURCE: The flush valve does stay open long enough after flushing

Which style of flush valve do you have? If it is the dual-flush option (solids/liquids) I do not know how to adjust those. If you have a traditional style, then the flapper or ball is closing too soon. You need to adjust the guide arm (flush ball) higher or shorten the chain between the flapper and the handle. Adjust this carefully or you will have it fail to seat and the toilet will constantly run.

I hope this helps.

To short of flush


Take the top off the tank and look at the water height. Adjust the float valve to raise the water to the line on the back of the tank. There is usually a little screw.

If the tank is already high, try holding the flush lever down. Newer tanks are dual flush, which a short flush with a quick press and release (for having a wee), and a long flush holding the handle down for ... well you get the picture :>)

Not enough water goes into the Toilet Bowl, The Tank fills up fine but very little goes into the Tank, Terrible Flush


THERE ARE LOTS OF SMALL HOLES WHERE THE WATER COMES OUT OF IN THE RIM OF THE TOILET BOWL, SOME TIMES HARD WATER BLOCKES THES AND THEY NEED TO BE CLEANED. THEY CAN BE CLEANED USING A LARGE SEWING NEEDLE, PUSHING IT INTO THE HOLE UNTIL IT FEELS A BIT BIGGER, YOU WON'T DO DAMAGE AS IT IS VERY HARD METERIAL. a
AFTERWARDS TURN OFF THE WATER, AND LIFT THE VALVE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE TANK AND PUT SOME TOILET ACID INTO IT. THIS WILL ALSO HELP CLEAN THE HOLES.

When flushed, not enough water coming from bowl rim holes to wash waste off sides of bowl. Have checked holes around top rim, none are plugged. This has been a problem since purchased one year ago.


Its simple. Check to see if you installed toliet right by removing top of tank and holding handle all the way down. Did it flush from all rim holes? If not, then u will need to get a garden hose with a sprayer to increase pressure and shot high volocity water at rim holes to unblock it. Remember the very front on newer blows do not have holes its a pee shield. Also try doing these other things adjust screw inside tank to make sure the bowl has enough water in it to do a good job. Check the rubber tube going into the hollow pipe and make sure it is going fully inside the plastic pipe that is sticking out of the top of the water in the tank. Also you need to have enough water in tank to allow it to flush good. To increase tank water levels then just unscrew the big plastic ball (or just bend wire to allow more water or bend to allow less water) at top of water in tank. Also increase (max) water pressure at wall to allow it to work at its best. If you have hard water it can cause problems but you say it happened even new, so, you do not have to go in that direction.

I have a Jacuzzi Perfecta toilet (bought Aug. 21, 2008) at Lowe's. I have the sales ticket. The toilet works fine. The tank fills very slowly (2 minutes) before it shuts off. It also makes a whistling...


Have you tried shutting water off and take top of valve appart and flush it out. It may have something in valve causing water to be restricted. It will have an arrow on it to direction to get it to come off.

Take appart and clean rubber disc and you can put something over top of valve , a small cup or something to enable you to flush the tank. Have someone help you and hold the cup above the valve so that when you turn water on for a few bursts to flush out the valve it goes into tank.

The actual stream that flows through valve is restricted down to almost 1/8 " opening so it wouldn't take mush to block the flow of water.

The disc you take out you can replace it, if it seems to be damaged and not working correctly. That will affect the flow also.

I have to flush three time just to get one piece of toilet paper down


the first thing to look at is to see how much water is in the system if its very low it will only give you a short flush take off the top and see how much water it is holding when full up, if its lower that the over flow pipe you could rase it a little by lifting the ball to let more water in, then have a look at the bole itself were the water comes out there are a row of holes if there blocked with lime scale you will need to clean them all out its a messy job i know but this scale will slow down the flow of water and there wont be the forse to clear the bole out, an old drill bit of the right size will easly clean the holes out, dont just try useing lime scale remover and a stiff brush as it wont get right into the holes they need to be clear right through to the water pipe from the header tank ie: about 1.5 inches so only doing the job by hand will do this
it should work ok after that
best of luck,,,with a nasty job

In the tank, when I flush, water comes shooting out of the black plastic thing, about 2 feet high! How can I make this stop so it flushes properly again? (its an eljer 2001)


is the black thing between the the tank and the bowl?
if so, go to any of the home center or plumping store for the seal.
shunt off the water and unbolt the 3 bolts that holds the tank to the bowl from the buttom. you may need a flat screw driver to help hold the bolts. pull up the tank slowly, and lay it on the side, replace the seal, reseat the tank on to the bowl and tighten the bolts. make sure all bolts are equal pressure and the tank is level.

Water comes from bottom of tank when commode is flushed. I have a two piece toilet, upon flushing it water pours from in between the two joined parts-tank and commode.


You need a new tank gasket. It is a rubber piece that seals between the tank and the bowl. They are fairly inexpensive and if you have patience and a little plumbing know-how; they can be changed at home. Here is a good on-line set of instructions:

Delay on tank fill after flush. Toto Drake bowl ada elongatred


I am not a plumber but stumbled across the solution on my own. While watching the float during the flush cycle, it was obvious that it was very slow in moving downward along with the water level in the tank. The problem was that the small opening in the float chamber was partially clogged. Using just my fingers, I reached under the float chamber and cleaned off any debris that was blocking the opening underneath the float chamber. Put the float back on, and instantly the problem was solved. The tank fill started immediately after I flushed.
