SLOAN FLUSH VALVES ARE SIMPLE. IT DEPENDES ON THE PROBLEM. IF THE VALVE KEPS RUNNING AFTER IT IS FLUSHED THE RUBBER DIAPHRAM IS DIRTY OR OLD AND THE RUBBER DIAPHRAM IS GETTING HARD. AND STICKING. THE VALVE WORKS ON A VACUME TO CLOSE THE DIAPHRAM TO STOP THE FLUSH PROCESS. WHEN YOU PULL ON THE FLUSH HANDLE YOU BREAK THE VACUME THAT FORM ON THE TOP OF THE DIAPHRAM WHICH ALLOWS THE WATER TO FLOW AS THE WATER FLOWS IT IS ALSO STARTING TO PULL A VACUME IN THE TOP OF THE DIAPHRAM TO CLOSE THE DIAPHRAM AND STOP THE FLUSH.
AS THE DIAPHRAM GET OLD AND WORN IT GETS HARD AND DOES NOT MOVE AS FREELY AND STICKS OPEN AND WON'T LET THE VACUME CLOSE THE DIAPHRAM AND THE URINAL WILL CONTINUE TO FLUSH. HOPE THIS ANSWERED YOU QUESTION

Have a urinal flush valve which has insufficient water discharge. Unit is supposed to dispense 1 gallon, but I would estimate only about a half liter flush. Any suggestions?


Hi,
The guts have worn and the hadle does not push the internal plunger far enough. Check your local plumbing supply house for a rebuild kit. The kit can be installed in a couple of minutes.

No water comes out of valve when flushed


As you are looking at the valve, on the infeed line, there is a cap where it makes the turn to the flush head. Remove this cap and behind it you will find a screw. This screw limits the water flow to the flush valve. Try turning the screw counterclockwise a bout one turn. Continue to adjust the screw until you have proper flushing results.

I have a Sloan urinal that will not stop flushing. I have rebuilt it with a total rebuild kit. I cleaned the inside of all surfaces and I flushed the entire piping system to no avail. It will not stop...


The rubber vacuum relief needs to also be changed if you have not. It is located in the tube that runs down to the urinal from under the flush valve. The handle could be hanging up.....or there could still be sediment stopping the diaphragm from working properly.

Urinal will flush, but will not stop.


You will need a sloan rebuild kit. They are inexpensive, and fairly easy to install. Check Sloan's website, or a plumbing supply house for the rebuild kit. You do not have to shut water off to the entire building to do this work. You will notice a chrome cover on the front portion of the line coming out from the wall. Remove this cover, and you will find a flat head screw. Turn the screw clockwise, and this will shut the flow of water off that is going to the area you will need to work on. The rebuild kit will come with instructions on the install. Again, it is relatively easy to replace. Just make sure you shut the water off, or BIG SURPRISES in your future.

Urinal leaks need help


You will have to shut water off, that is what the screw does(so it can be worked on). you will need 2 pipe wrenches, always use 1 wrench to back up or hold fixture when using other wrench to open valve. That said with top of valve off now you can replace the flush valve diaframe. You can go lowes or some other improvment store/

Regal Sloan Valve operates only intermittently


The diaphram has a little metal by-pass or air-flow hole thats probally stopped up or the vacumn breaker is bad.
