SOURCE: toilet wont flush completely. it may take 4 times

there is no air release. the vent must be clogged somewhere. you can take a hose up there and see if it drains all the way or floods over. since the tub drain has a trap and the toilet itself is a trap, there has to bee a good amount of air pressure coming up without a release. i would say an obstruction. possibly at the junction of the main and the vent.

SOURCE: toto toilet with gmax flushing system blue top

I have the same problem and can not find a solution. The toilet flushes fine but then a delay in filling up the tank occurs. Is there a part I can replace? Does something need to be cleaned or cleared?

SOURCE: My up flush toilet makes a humming sound every 5

Hi,
The pump has either gone bad or it is siezed up...you can try to unplug the pum and let it sit for a few hours then plug it back in... sometimes if you jog it on and off a few times you can get tiit to break loose and work again...if not you will have to take it out and replace the pump.

How do I fix a toilet that bubbles (small air bubbles from below) and flushes slow, and not completely very often?


Remove the toilet & have a plumbing company power snake
as much of the entire homes waste drain as possible

Maybe clogged inside the home on most runs & also out to
the street,have them do as much as they can, out to the street

Remove all toilets, so they can do good job & you can check &
clean them from under it

Have them run a camera down ALL drains & to the street

Toilet bowl will not drain when flushed


if your flapper is held open and the toilet rises to the rim and does not flush then you need a closet auger and clean out the toilet as it has debris restricting the flush

Loud squealing noise from water softener when toilet flushed


The unit may be in a regeneration cycle during the day. Reset to proper time of day.
It also sounds like you may need an air arestor installed on the plumbing in the house. When air becomes trapped in the plumbing lines it can cause the plumbing to "hammer" during periods of heavy usage. You would need to contact a plumber for proper placement of this device on your plumbing system.

Where can I get rid of my cat's waste?


You should tie the waste in a plastic bag and throw it away to the toilet, it is 100 percent flushable and you shouldn't worry about it.

Is is possible to make a full flush toilet from an American Standard Cadet 3. The toilet is on a septic system and does not have the power to move waste all the way to the septic tank.


If your toilet is not moving waste all the way to the septic, then there may be a blockage in the waste line or it may not be plumbed correctly. There is no reason why you should not be able to make a full flush on septic. I have live on septic for many years and it should flush as well as living in the city. Is your water supply nice and strong? This sound like a gravity issue with the waste line or a blockage, If you can get under your house and see how the waste line is run, that would be helpful, it should be aimed straight down underneath your toilet and never running uphill at any point on the way to the septic tank. Also is there a vent in the waste line at the proper distance. If not, that could also be the issue. Good luck. P.s. does your septic tank need pumped out?

The flush valve closes almost immediately so that there is an inadeuate flush. The valve is a large cylinder about the width of a soda can and there is no adjustment I can see.


you will need to find a plumbing store and purchase a new one, I live in SC and Larrys' Plumbing sales them, so I am sure like a HD Furgersens etc. will. Good Luck Tim

I have a quantum toilet that flushes normally but then syphons the water from the bowl Possible problem?


Look for your main plumbing vent that goes out your roof, is it pluged with a nest or something? When your drain system drains, it needs outside air from the vent to keep the system from vaccume lock. Same as vapor lock in the gas line on your vehicle. If the system is'nt getting air it will **** the water from the traps in your drain system like it is doing in your toilet. You may have to have a professional drain cleaner or plumber correct your pluged vent.

Pretty new toilet seems to drip down the drane pipe after flush. Sounds like a little trickle as if there is too much water in the bottom an it is running out.


Sounds like the flapper isn't sitting properly. Take the lid off the tank and put a few drops of food coloring in it. Let it sit for a while (do not flush). If the water in the bowl turns that color, that means the flapper needs replacing. Simple to do and costs about 5 bucks. Good luck
