My toilet is turning on and off periodically. I replaced the flush value seal (red rubber ring), but it continues to leak. Is there a trick when replacing the seal?

Top and bottom seals:
It is best to replace both at once to assure the new seals are pliable and come together to form a water tight seal.

Replacing only one, the old seal is probably stiff or cracked and will not seal properly.

No secrete I am aware of except clean new and level parts.

Good luck!

Caroma toilet 12years old, concealed cistern. Water leaking around base when toilet is flushed. water level maintained when not flushing, so the leak must be between the cistern and the bowl. Had a plumber...


Fixing a leaky toilet is actually rather simple, requiring few tools and just a little time and effort. In looking at Caroma toilets on Google, they appear to be just a standard type of unit, and should present few if any problems for yourself or any handyman of modest skill.

If it is leaking around the base of the toilet - where the toilet sits on the floor, the repair item is a simple wax seal. Here is a tutorial to effect this repair: Replace Toilet Wax Ring. The wax ring is very inexpensive, usually $5 to $10 USD.

If the water is leaking from between the tank (cistern) and the toilet bowl, the job is even easier, as it does not require lifting and moving the entire toilet. A good tutorial for that repair is here: How to Replace Tank to Bowl Gasket . The gaskets, new nuts, bolts and rubber seals come in a kit and also cost only $5 to $10 USD.

I am sorry to hear your Plumber insisted you buy an entire new toilet, but do remember he is in the business of making money!

Kohler santa rosa fills, shuts off, a little water leaks from tank, toilet refills and repeats the leakage into the drain.


There is a rubber seal at the bottom of the flush valve that covers the openning at the bottom of the tank. If this rubber seal has perished slightly then it will leak water into the toilet bowl. This rubber seal need to be replaced to form a proper seal to prevent water leak.

I have a dual flush corona and there is a stream of water leaking into the bowl. It periodically has to continue to fill when it gets low. I have replaced the round seal inside the tank at the very bottom....


There should be a float inside the tank of the toilet. Be sure that when the tank fills that the float is not getting stuck, or not floating all the way up and not sealing the flush valve at the bottom of the tank.

My toto toilet was installed with the seal which came with it. A leak started in the downstairs suite and when the plumber lifted the toilet off the floor he said it needed a wax seal as well as the rubber...


That should work. Sometimes if the space between the bottom of the fixture and the top of the collector ring is too large, (ie: the addition of flooring) one can double up on the wax rings also.

HOW DO I CHANGE FLUSH SEAL ON KOHLER ONE PEICE TOILET


The flush seal is the rubber gasket between the tank and the bowl. You do not have one. So I am guessing you mean the wax ring on the floor?? They usually only get replaced when the toilet is changed, unless you spring a leak. Or are you talking about the flapper inside the tank that holds the water till the flush lever is pulled? Get a new flapper, if it is just the flapper you need, otherwise you will have to buy the whole thing, all these parts are available at the hardware store. I think it is held on by a couple screws in there, might just be a press fit, we don't see too many one piece toilets. And the wax ring is about $2, but the toilet has to be unbolted from the floor and water disconnected, clean off the old wax, put on the new ring, smoosh it back down and bolt it back it up. Don't for get the water line. Check to make sure you have no leaks. Hope this helps.

How do i fix a cistern that is continually leaking in to the toilet bowl? i have tried to open the cistern at the flush button unit but do not want to force open. tried twisting but is quite tight.


most modern toilets do not have an overflow pipe to outside instead they overflow into the bowl itself so have to adjust level so it does not overflow into return

We put the toiet in twice and it is still leaking around the base. we replaced the rubber seal. there is a rubber transition piece with a rubber seal around it and I think this is the problem


Yes, that is likely the problem. I reccomend going with the old tried and true reliable wax ring seal.

For each toilet I put in I install the poly reinforced wax ring with horn. This has consistently served to prevent leaks and call backs alowing me to have no warranty issues.

I reccomend it over the rubber seal anyday.

Here is a pic of the poly reinforced wax ring with flange.
