If you purchase the flush valve from Kohler, it comes without instruction. Rotation is the key to removal. First note the exact orientation of the assembly before attempting removal. Unhook the flapper chain and remove the flapper. The old assembly does indeed rotate in either direction for removal. I used a counterclockwise motion. (it was a tough turn, don't break the bottom of the bowl where the valve seat is located.) Then install the new foam gasket on the assembly. The new assembly is replaced in the reverse manner. I removed the new flapper from the flush valve for ease of install. You must put significant downward pressure on the flapper seat while rotation is accomplished. Orient the assembly as was the old one. Replace the flapper, connect the chain and observe the flapper for proper opperation.

Toilet flushing by itself


The filler valve may be allowing excessive water to enter the tank. Check the flap valve to make it is easting properly.

Not enough water goes into the Toilet Bowl, The Tank fills up fine but very little goes into the Tank, Terrible Flush


THERE ARE LOTS OF SMALL HOLES WHERE THE WATER COMES OUT OF IN THE RIM OF THE TOILET BOWL, SOME TIMES HARD WATER BLOCKES THES AND THEY NEED TO BE CLEANED. THEY CAN BE CLEANED USING A LARGE SEWING NEEDLE, PUSHING IT INTO THE HOLE UNTIL IT FEELS A BIT BIGGER, YOU WON'T DO DAMAGE AS IT IS VERY HARD METERIAL. a
AFTERWARDS TURN OFF THE WATER, AND LIFT THE VALVE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE TANK AND PUT SOME TOILET ACID INTO IT. THIS WILL ALSO HELP CLEAN THE HOLES.

Ingenium toilet water will not turn off. The float is completely under water and still water is coming into the tank.


WEll, two thoughts come to mind. either your float has "sunk" or you have foreign matter in the inlet valve...Typically, you replace the inlet valve in this case.

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.

I have the Kohler model 703 one piece toilet. It runs once about every ten minutes. It sounds just like a flush but nothing happens in the bowl. Any ideas?


Something is leaking. Your description sounds like tank water is slowly leaking and then the tank refills. You really need to use Kohler brand parts, as others pieces seem to not work well.

When you flush, sometimes it flushes fine, and sometimes the pressure isn't there at all and you need to reflush


Make sure the flapper is holding water in tank. if it is leaking, then when you go to flush there is not enough of water to flush. to check for leaking flapper,take a pack of kool-aid and dump it into tank of toilet. dont flush toilet. let set for 10-15 mins. if the flapper is leaking,the color of kool-aid will show up in bowl. hope this helps.

Toilet fill runs periodically works well but wastes water


Sounds like your flapper is leaking causing the water in the tank to lower until it triggers the fill valve. Replace the flapper (they're cheap and wear out easily).
