Flapper valve closes too quickly


Fill the breather hole (1/8" hole) inside the flapper.This is designed to let air out so the flapper will sink. Now it floats longer letting in more water. 25%percent more in my case.

Water leaking on floor...when flush..no urine water


Before you flush the toilet, take the top cover off the tank.
Then flush.. Sometimes water sprays from the float valve,
sprays up against the underside of the cover, then runs down
the back of the toilet.

All my best to you.

When you sit on the ring it veers off to the left and you are left sitting there crooked. How do we adjust it?


See if nuts on studs on bottom where it mounts to the floor & flange are loose. If they are loose tighten both of them evenly. If they are tight you will need to replace wax ring that is between toilet & floor.Turn off shutoff water valve to toilet. Flush once holding down handle to let tank drain. Remove both nuts & lift toilet off flange. Remove wax ring. Scrape all old wax off toilet & floor flange. Install new wax ring. Set down toilet on ring & snug nuts evenly. Sit on seat & apply your weight evenly to distribute wax & level. Retighten nuts. Turn water back on. Allow tank to refill. Flush toilet & check for leaks.

Do you recommend 'sealing' the bottom of a toilet with silicone?


no, it will yellow if p gets on it. Use a flexible acrylic caulk, but not an acrylic adhesive because it will make it hard to lift the toilet in the future without damaging the floor.

Toilet leaks into floor and lower level ceiling, no water on bathroom floor.


Either wax ring or sewage pipe is leaking. If you cant open the ceiling from below to look for leak you may have to remove toilet inspect pipe and look to see if it was leaking from wax ring and if it could have gone downstairs without leaking out too. If leak couldn't have come from wax ring the leak must be coming from a pipe in the floor. Find the simplest way to access it to repair it.

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.

REMOVAL OF TOTO AQUIA TOILET


first shut off water and then flush the john. this will remove most of the water. for water remaining in tank us a sponge or similar to remove remaining water. find where toilet bolts to floor and remove these bolts or nuts. then pick whole toilet from floor, there should be a wax ring under toilet, replace wax ring when putting back in. when putting back in just push down on toilet to squish wax ring and bolt to floor, turn on water and check for leaks. good luck

Internal leak


I am not familiar with this particular toilet, but most toilets that have a tank have this problem when the rubber flap stopper does not seal and allows water to trickle through.

this is the rubber stopper that lifts when you use the flush handle, the fix was to use the handle and allow all the water to flow out and use a soft rag and clean the area that the stopper seals to, and you will also want to clean the stopper of any gunk that may have accumulated on it.

American Standard Elongated toilet bowl water level slowly drops


The tank holding the proper amount of water is a good sign. The inside of the stool is like the GOOSE NECK under you sink. It always holds water. This may sound like a bit of a hassle to do but if all 3 toilets are identical, here is what you can try if you are a bit handy. Go to the hardware store and purchase 4 toilet wax rings with a plastic flange and a few sets of toilet floor flange bolts(they are cheap and you can always return if not used, as It is better to have xtra parts on hand). Turn off the water supply to the "Mystery Toilet". Leave the tank and everything connected to the stool. Flush the toilet and remove all excess water from the tank and bowl. This can be done with a shop vac, sponge or towel. Disconnect the water supply to the tank. Remove the bolts holding the stool to the floor and carefully remove toilet. Scrap off all the old wax from the floor flange and bottom of stool. Now go and repeat this proceedure to one of the toilets that is working properly. In other words Switch the "Mystery Toilet" with a "Working Toilet" and see how they react. If the working toilet does it in the same bathroom and the "Mystery Toilet" does not do it in the other bathroom then you probably have a VENTING PROBLEM. If the "Mysery Toilet" Does it in the other bathroom then you most likely have a Defective Toilet. This Job is best done by 2 people, as it can sometimes be challenging to center the new wax ring on the toilet flange. Reconnect to the floor and reconnect water supply to the tanks. DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN BOLTS to the floor flange as you may crack the toilet. All drain lines must be vented properly for water to flow. If you are curious check out drain venting on the internet. Also, sometimes a vent can become obstructed with debris, ice, bird nest, etc.. I would 1st check the vent on the roof visually and then have someone flush and listen. If you believe the vent is clear....Then do the toilet switch and go from there.....Hope this helps and Happy Holidays....Joe
