Question about Crane Plumbing Toilet To Go Tall Elongated Toilet

2 Answers

My toilet flushes very slowly. If I hold the handle down it is better, but still not right. I was on the roof and checked the vent, it is clear. I replaced the toilet, the old one was a cheap one that was trouble for a long time (but at one time it drained properly). I bought a Crane at the local Habitat for Humanity but it drains slowly too. Could my problem be between the tank and bowl? i.e. the small holes under the bowl rim?

Try replacing the flapper in the tank and adjust the chain or plastic cord so theres not alot of play when handle is in the rested position. you can get some CRC and try cleaning it or use a coat hanger to poke the hole out in the rim. If that doent do it then it may be a cloged drain or venting problem.

No. There is either a partial blockage between the floor flange and main stack or you have not installed the toilet properly and the wax seal has squeezed wax over the outlet hole. Always clean all old wax off of flange before installing new seal.

When flushing the toilet an air bubble comes up and drains slowly


Blocked vent line. Sewer line has a vent line so all drains easily. Without the vent it's like holding your finger on a straw. The vent is the pipe up thru the roof. Maybe blocked by animal'? Nest'? Something.

The new toilet has more flushing volume than the old one. The system should handle this. The problem could be the vents on the roof are plugged or something in the line is obstructing the flow. You will need to contact a plumber

Down stair toilet bubbles when upstair toilet is flushed. never had this problem with old toilet


The roof vent for the toilets is shared. It is the pipe (on the roof) that lets water in the drain system. When clogged, it causes what you have. A garden hose placed in the roof vent (and turned on) may clear the blockage (could be leafs or pine straw or a dead bird). Needs to be cleared... I have used a plumbers snake with 100% success....but you may not have one...so the garden hose suggestion. Be careful on the roof.

Toilet BLUBS downstairs when flushed upstairs.


Your sewer vent may be clogged, or if you are in the northern climates, frosted shut. When you flush the toilet the water displaces the air in the drain piping. The vent gives the air somewhere to go. If the vent is plugged the dispaced air forces it's way out through the path of least resistance( the lower toilet in this case).Pour some hot water down the vent where it comes through the roof to thaw it out.or run a snake down the vent. Hope this helps.

Just hooked up new pressure asist tank & bowl,turned on water to it,and it want flush.what i mean about want flush, is it will flush but water does'nt go down,as if it's not staying open long enough.


Sounds like you have a clogged drainline or vent-stack. Fill a large bucket with about three gallons of water and dump it quickly into the bowl. If the drainline/vent is clear, the toilet will "flush" like a gravity toilet and the water will drain from the bowl almost as fast as you can pour it in.

If the water level in the bowl slowly rises (as if it's about to overflow) and then slowly drains, you have a clog somewhere.

All toilets, regardless of their flushing mechanism, require a clear, unoibstructed drain/waste/vent system to extract waste.

If the toilet "flushes" with the bucket of water, you may want to call Flushmate tech support (the number is on top of the tank) or check out the installation and troubleshooting videos at howto.flushmate.com.

Hope this helps.

If there is a shower in the same bath is it also draining slowly?
If so check that drain systems air vent, (on the roof).

air moving in and out of the pipe with your hand covering the end. If not the vent could be blocked by leaves or animals etc., this vent has to be clear in order for water to drain properly.

Have Mansfield #160 and hear a fog horn like sound when flushing toilet. What can I do to fix?


Are your wast water pipes in your house vented through the roof? If they are maybe the vent pipe is clogged. At my father in-laws house the pipes are not vented through the roof like their supposed to be to vent sewer gas. they are not vented at all. Every time you flush it sounds like someone is downs stairs screaming. Something to do with air/ suction in the pipes.

American Standard Elongated toilet bowl water level slowly drops


The tank holding the proper amount of water is a good sign. The inside of the stool is like the GOOSE NECK under you sink. It always holds water. This may sound like a bit of a hassle to do but if all 3 toilets are identical, here is what you can try if you are a bit handy. Go to the hardware store and purchase 4 toilet wax rings with a plastic flange and a few sets of toilet floor flange bolts(they are cheap and you can always return if not used, as It is better to have xtra parts on hand). Turn off the water supply to the "Mystery Toilet". Leave the tank and everything connected to the stool. Flush the toilet and remove all excess water from the tank and bowl. This can be done with a shop vac, sponge or towel. Disconnect the water supply to the tank. Remove the bolts holding the stool to the floor and carefully remove toilet. Scrap off all the old wax from the floor flange and bottom of stool. Now go and repeat this proceedure to one of the toilets that is working properly. In other words Switch the "Mystery Toilet" with a "Working Toilet" and see how they react. If the working toilet does it in the same bathroom and the "Mystery Toilet" does not do it in the other bathroom then you probably have a VENTING PROBLEM. If the "Mysery Toilet" Does it in the other bathroom then you most likely have a Defective Toilet. This Job is best done by 2 people, as it can sometimes be challenging to center the new wax ring on the toilet flange. Reconnect to the floor and reconnect water supply to the tanks. DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN BOLTS to the floor flange as you may crack the toilet. All drain lines must be vented properly for water to flow. If you are curious check out drain venting on the internet. Also, sometimes a vent can become obstructed with debris, ice, bird nest, etc.. I would 1st check the vent on the roof visually and then have someone flush and listen. If you believe the vent is clear....Then do the toilet switch and go from there.....Hope this helps and Happy Holidays....Joe
