My Nabis Serene Close Coupled toilet cistern is sticking so it does not fill with water. Also it is leaking where the inlet pipe goes into the hole at the bottom of the cistern. This was a brand new toilet fitted by a plumber 2 days ago.

The dual flush cistern does not empty when the buttons are depressed. They have to be held down to clear the toilet bowl. How can I fix this?


cisterns never completely empty as the setting of the mechanism to close the valve is activated when it gets heavier than the water supporting it
try allowing more water into the cistern on a fill by adjusting the water level control
get a plumber in to clean out the sewerage pipes as there appears to be an obstruction in the line

FIXING A TOILET THAT WILL NOT FLUSH!!! a simple but very effective money saving...


This simple how to, is based upon most lever operated toilets, with the cistern mounted above the toilet bowl. The make and model of toilet used for this feature is of the following:
Toilet and internal syphon
DUDLEY ELITEDudley S7 Cascade syphon
Problem:
My toilet will not flush, but the ball float valve is working and there is water in the cistern; no leaks present and the flushing lever is not broken or disconnected, what do I do?
Answer:
first isolate the water to the toilet or the main water supply to the house. Bail out the water from the cistern using a small jug or cup, (or you can syphon the water manually using a hosepipe or similar pipe, a towel to cover your mouth, and either a bucket or the toilet bowl) and remove water from the bottom of the cistern with a sponge.


Changing the syphon in a toilet that is not close coupled is far easier as you do not need to remove the cistern from the wall!


Undo the lower of the two large nuts beneath the cistern using a large pipe wrench or pair of water pump pliers, now disconnect the flush pipe and push it to one side.
Place a bucket or bowl beneath the cistern and undo the Nut which is immediately below the cistern (syphon replacing nut), some water may be released by the syphon, take note of any washers that are removed as new ones need fitting when replacing the siphon.
Unhook the lift rod from the flushing lever and remove the syphon.


Inside the toilet syphon, there will be a small plastic piece of sheet called a diaphragm; you can fabricate a replacement using the plastic title cover on a DVD case. Cut this to the exact same size and shape as the original part, and fit this to where the original diaphragm was. This is your new replacement.


Refitting is a complete reversal of removal, be sure to fit any washers (preferably new ones) that you have taken out. Ensure everything is tight but do not over tighten before refilling the cistern

MY TOILET FLUSH VALVE SEEMS TO BE CLOGED BUT I CLEANED IT IT WILL FLUSH BUT WONT FILL TANK YOU CAN HEAR WATER WANTING TO COME OUT PLEASE HELP


Hi Juan
Unfortunately we can't see what you can see. The problem must be right in front of you but you are missing it. Eg Parts / Seals in backwards.
If you can't figure it out and it's that urgent then call a plumber.
Good Luck

Twyford dual flush cistern


replace the whole control unit
There may be 2 problems
the small washer that shuts off the water flow when the level is reached may be swollen and not sealing properly
the section at the bottom has cracked at a thread level
so by replacing the unit you will eliminate both problems
to remove the unit, turn off the water tap, flush the system, holding the button down until all of the water has gone
remove the inlet pipe at the bottom of the cistern
undo the retaining nut under the cistern and lift the control unit out
there will be water in the bottom of the cistern so use old towels on the floor to soak up the water that will run out

I've just fitted a Nabis breeze and am having flushing problems.


Well many toilets flush very high before flushing, they appear to almost overflow, but if that doesn't seem like your problem, I would recommend adjusting the float on the Fluid-master fill valve so that there is less water in the tank when it flushes.

It is blocked how do i unblock it


Turn off electricity to saniflo.Turn off water to toilet (normally an inline valve). Empty toilet bowl and cistern of water. Remove toilet, cistern. Disconnect inlet pipes to saniflo (careful as backed up water will flow out!).

Take out Saniflo (outside is normally good). Open up top with star driver and use a flat blade for the plastic retaining flaps.Be sure to wear rubber gloves to keep out germs from cuts etc on your hands.

Cover mains cables with plastic food bag and tape up. Use a solution of bleach / warm water, fill up the sanifo and leave for a while. Swish around and empty into a drain etc. I also use a hosepipe to make sure I get it really clean (esp under motor and float switch). Also check inlet pipe flappy bit and the actual pipes that connect to the saniflo

Good luck

When cistern fills with water it leaks into the bowl


Hi,

This is caused by the 'syphon' mechanism sticking, quite often nowadays the 'brilliant' plastic push button/ syphon combo sticks, and most toilets are fitted with an internal overflow, lift the lid on the cistern and check for anything causing an obstruction.

More often than not, it's a tiny bit of scale that causes such a headache, and the fact that nothing is made with any quality nowadays!

If you can't see what's wrong call a plumber, he/she will solve it.

I hope this helps
