Eljer Windsor One Piece Toilet help - leaks water into bowl


I would go back with the ballcock kind. However, the flapper will need to be replaced. It is not seating properly. The fluid master is a revised version and a bit more efficient. It should work well also. They both work off buoyancy and shuts off water the same way.

THER WILL BE A WATER SHUTOFF VALVE BETWEEN THE FLOOR AND THE COMMODE ON THE WATER LINE TO YOUR BALLCOCK, TURN WATER OFF, FLUSH COMODE SO YOU CAN CLEAR MOST ALL OF THE WATER OUT OF IT.

Very slow refill on tank. How to adjust?


Hi carlson33 19...

I would say your fill valve (ballcock) has trash in it or needs to be replaced because of age.

If you replace it you can get the "ballcock" from just about any hardware supply,Home Depot,Lowes...etc.. and I would recommend the replacement of the "flapper valve" also at the same time.
All the instructions for adjusting are on the package of the ballcock...
This should solve your problem.

Not flushing, bowl will not fill up with water


Hi rjhfp

Check inside of the tank to make sure the connector from the handle of the flusher to the "flapper valve" is connected, to do this you have to remove the tank lid.
If it is connected then you have a different problem.
Sounds like you have trash in the valve inside of the "ballcock assembly"
The ballcock assembly is the part that lets the water into the tank, and the "flapper valve" is the part that allows the water to flush into the bowl...
Replace you ballcock assembly and it will solve your problems.

Water flow does not stop


you probably have a bad flapper valve. The flapper valve sits in the bottom of the tank and allows the water to flow into the bowl when you flush. Turn off water supply to the commode and remove the tank lid. Feel the flapper valve, ensuring it is seated fully on the opening and is not damaged. If any rubber comes off on your hand or it feels slimy then you need to replace it. Remove flapper and take it to your local hardware store to match up with what they have on the shelf - you may need to cut some parts off of the replacement valve as they are designed to fit several different commodes. It is also possible that your float is stuck and you may need to replace the float and fill assembly - if this is so, the new assembly will come with detailed instructions to replace.
Hope this helps!!

Water keeps dripping in the tank, but the tank doe...


This description is a little vague, but I will do my best to help. The first question I would ask is. Is this water going down into the bowl? This can be checked by adding a couple drops of food coloring to the water in the tank and waiting a little while before looking for colored water in bowl. If there is colored water in bowl than the most common problem would be a faulty flapper or flush gasket. If no colored water shows up than the ballcock valve may need to be adjusted or replaced. I hope this helps.

VitrA #5055 toilet why will it not stop running


the flapper is not closing all the way in the tank. if, when the handle is at rest, the flapper chain is too taut, the flapper is not closing all the way. so loosen the chain. if there is slack, the flapper is not making a good seal and is letting water through. or if in the tank the water is going over the standing up overflow tube, you need to adjust the float. if you have the ball float, lift it up slowly and see if the water stops running. if not, replace the ballcock (valve where the float is attached. if it does stop, unscrew the ball a little or bend the ball arm down a bit until the water stops short of the overflow. if you have the shuttle float, do the same test. if the water does shut off, adjust the shuttle accordingly.
