SOURCE: toto toilet, flapper doesn't stay up long enough to flush

One of two things is the problem. First, make sure that you have a tight chain with little slack. If there's too much slack, the flapper won't catch in the passing air to stay up. Second, the flapper is not correct for that style of toilet. You might want to look into purchasing a new Kolby filter that has a removeable cone in the center. Move that cone to 12 o'clock to allow the maximum amount of water to run through the flush valve. If the flapper you have now is flat, it needs to have a cone in the center on the underside.

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.

Screw loose in securing toilet to flange


Hopefully you can tighten it Sometimes the flange bends up or can break. Many a flange is not held down properly with good enough screws or the plywood has been rotting etc. If you can tighten it or loosen it then it has to be cut off with a recipricating saw or hacksaw and replaced.

Flushing problems


Tank needs more water and the flapper has to stay open longer by adjusting chain so the flapper goes up higher when you flush the unit. Practice and you will get it right.

We have a san raphael one piece toilet, and it sounds like the water is running at intervals. Sounds like there is problem with water level. What can I do to correct this problem? John


Sounds like the flapper is leaking water out of the tank. The flapper is the rubber valve that comes up and down every time you pull the flush lever. It is located in the tank at the bottom in the center. Very cheap part to replace.. Just turn the water off to the stool, take the top of the tank off, hold the flush lever down until all the water is out of the tank, reach in to the tank, disconnect the flush chain from the flapper, and disconnect the flapper arms holding to the stem. You can buy a flapper at any hardware store even at wal mart. Hope this helps.

When I flush the toilet the handle stays down and therefore the toilet runs on. How can I fix it?


If you lift the lid you should see where the handle goes through the porcelin. You can remove the handle by unscrewing the nut inside the tank. Try cleaning the inside of the nut as sometimes water deposits collect in this area and cause binding on the handle shaft. After you clean it up you can apply a very small amount of petrolium jelly to the handle shaft when you reinstall it, this should prevent the problem from happening again.

Our single piece Kohler toilet does not flush clean. It appears to not be using enough water quick enough to give a clean flush. The tank level is just above the white line on the over flow pipe level so...


The flapper on these toilets is a water saver. The water saver flappers can be replaced with a standard flapper and I have found this will help considerably. The flapper is located in the tank at the center bottom. It is the part that flaps up and down when you pull the lever.

Tilet want flush no pressure when depressing


Take off the top lid and look at the flush handle mechanism. You'll see a not that holds it onto the tank. Tighten the nut so it is snug. Don't overtighten it or you could crack the tank. Next inspect the chain that goes between the end of the flush handle rod and the flapper valve. It should lift the flapper all the the way up when you operate the handle.

Water shooting out from the top valve when toliet flushed


According to the Make and Model listed in the heading there is a couple of areas on the fill valve.
  1. The coupler nut may be loose. This holds the float valve, Tighten.
  2. The 'O' ring by the coupler nut may be worn/damaged. Replace.
  3. On the other side of the float valve Assembly is a cap and underneath the cap is a seal. check this for wear or damage.
