Adjust the float up to make water deeper....make sure no obstructions around the flapper....flapper needs to rest tight to bottom of inside the tank..flapper is the rubber peice that lifts when you push handle

I have a 2yr old Kohler K4634 toilet. After flushing the water level drops about 1 inch in the bowl after the bowl filled. This causes a lower level in the bowl than is recommended. The main issue


check to see if waster continues to run into the bowl after the plunger has returned to stop water flowing. If it is a slow leak then replace the flush washer on the stopper plunger.

I have a new American Standard Cadet 3 that was just installed. After flushing, the water fills into the bowl. However, after several minutes, the water in the bowl slowly drains away and is nearly gone....


Sorry for problem with new toilet.
You say water is leaking out of the bowl?

Toilets have 2 parts:
1) Tank: where water is stored for the flush and is sealed with a flapper.
2) Bowl: where water flushes down.

a) If tank is leaking water, then flapper is suspect. Replace flapper and see if that works.
Lift up flapper and run finger around rim to see if there is a rough spot that would indicate flush valve is defective, and needs replacement.
See typical flush valve

b) If bowl is leaking, that is very unusual and would indicate a crack in the porcelain.

If installer sold you the toilet, it is his responsibility to make good on product.
All products are guarantee against workmanship flaws.

Tiolet not flushing right. Water not coming down the side of the bowl when flushing and 90 percent of the water is gone from the bowl.


1- Check ports out under rim all round bowl.

2-Check tank fill level for required amount to with in 5/8" to top of over flow tube.

3-Make sure 1/4" fill tube is connected to over flow tube. From fill valve to overflow tube.

Below is a few details to go by I hope will be helpful for you to take care of this problem.


Under the rim of the bowl check the ports and make sure they are not stopped up. You can open them up with nail or pin to clean out ports.
Next check tank level and make sure the fill valve has a line run from it to top of the overflow tube. This line allows water to goe to bowl and tank to fill required amount needed.
Water in tank should be within 5/8" to top of over flow tube.

Basement toilet drains slow sometimes ,other times doesnt want to go down all the way. seems as if there is no pressure to remove waste


if the toilet is old or not cleaned proper, the water jets that shoot the water into the bowl might be clogged. If the jets are clogged with moldor hard water build up the toilet will not flush proper. If you can take a 3 gallon bucket of water and pour straight into the bowl and it flushes fine you have a water pressure problem as described above. the problem also might be that your water inlet system is not letting in enough water to fill the tank. If this is the problem you need to replace the water inlet mechanisim, such as a fluid master. If you use a blue water device that hangs on the side of the tank in the back of the toilet you might have a peice of it under the flapper that takes the water to the bowl when being flushed. Check under the flapper if you put cleaners in the tank.

Eljer toilet


Hello there:
i would either get a snake and have the lines snaked out or get a good quality plunger and use that if you can get it to go down i recommend before you flush it get a small trashcan and fill it with steaming hot water and pour it down the drain and if needed do it 2 or 3 times this will help release any greasy residue that may have gotten in the line than you would be good to go ok?
best regards michael
