Broken toilet lid

Hi there We have just dropped the lid to the toilet systern which has smashed into a million pieces. On the inside it has 'Tiffany 9776' moulded into it. Do you know if we can order the lid on its own from anywhere and how much it might cost?
Many thanks

Sophie; What you can do is chk with Lowes or homedepot. I did the same thing more than once and ended up buying the whole tank. Try to order it and bring the part no. with yo. Try to get the phone no. of the manufacturer, They may ship you one or do a search on the net by typing in the mfg and part no. Good Luck.

While installing the heater I dropped the unit on its top and and smashed the sheetmetal caseing. How can I rest assured that the tank inside did not break? Is there a glass liner inside?

They construct a steel tank, then bond vitreous glass to the inside of it to keep it from rusting. There are variations in manufacturing quality, however, so some tanks might have a better glass lining than others. And there is always a small amount of steel exposed, due to limitations in the coating process.

The tank is protected with a insulated coating on the liner to protect it for damage even if the shell get's bent up. You can put water on it to test it for any leaks. I don't recomend putting a air test it could be dangerous to do so. If it fell from a upright position and not off something higher then it should still be ok.

Dsi flt light keeps going on and the black water light says full when we just emptied it.

DSi light coming on is to alert you that the water heater didn't light on propane for one reason or another. Sometimes people just forgot to turn propane on or are out of propane. What happens when you shut it off and turn it back on? (listening and watching from outside with cover open) DO you see or hear sparking?

As far as black water showing full when just emptied, it is most likely a piece of toilet paper inside the tank that is hanging up from top probe on inside of tank, and touching lower probe, thus giving a full reading. This is very common, at all levels. You can buy a rinse wand and rinse inside of tank through toilet to try and wash it off, or live with it for now, and add lots of water or cleaner deodorizer to tank , or buy probe cleaner, or even the old standby, some laundry soap added to tank , then fill tank close to full with water and rock trailer to swish it around, then drain it. Most times, waiting until next dump, and adding lots of water beforehand, will fix it.

Have to hold the flush bar down and the water does not take out all the paper & etc.

I'm assuming this is a question about a toilet not a water heater as its listed , if so,, remove the lid to your toilet. look for the end of the arm of the flush bar first of all there will be a chain or plastic strip attached to the end of it,, that goes down to the flapper ball covering the inlet to the unit itself, you either have a lose chain,, ( when closed it should have about 1 inch of play in it. ) or your flapper is defective,, they are both easy fixes. the flapper has tabs that attach to the overflow vent tube,, ( this should also have a small inlet water sprayer going into it. ) remove the flapper , and slide it off,, you'll have to remove the small sprayer to do this on some models,, replace the flapper ,, and be sure that you adjust the chain to 1 inch of play, as far as the toilet not flushing everything down,, make sure when filled the water line is at what the fill line mark is ( located inside the tank to the rear. ( if you cant see that,, its about 1 inch from the top of the inlet tube that sticks up inside the tank. lemme see if i can find you a link with a picture ,,,, ok heres a quick video that you can look at

Replace fill valve. Fluidmaster works quite well and is very adjustable.

Toilet does not flush down contents.

This seems to be a case of blockage within the toilet. Check the
Flushholes under the inside-rim of the toilet. they might be partially blocked by debris or deposits. If so, a Wire-Clotheshanger will help.
If the Blockage is in the drain, a Handauger might be helpful to push
blocking objects through or retrieve.
Waterlevel in the Toilet-tank could be too low. It should be about 1"
below the top of the Drainvalve in the middle of the Tank.

Toto C100 Toilet Washlet Seat

There are two types of bowls as far as toilets are concerned...elongated and round front. The seats are interchangable as long as there isn't anything different in the way the seat is mounted to the toilet. As far as I know and my experiance with both brands, I can't see any reason why it would not work.

Toilet does not flush strong enough to take down feces in bowl

You need to do 2 things. Take the lid off and check that the water level is up to the fill line, if it is you need to adjust the flapper. If it's not back the screw out on top until it is. Their should be a cylindrical piece of foam on the chain going to the handle. You need to pull off the retainers and move that foam closer to the flapper thus dumping more water in each flush.

When hot water is on & toilet flushed the temp drops

Check strainers and screens into the sink, at the spout and into the hot water heater. Sediment buildup could be limiting the flow which woul make the system more susceptible to pressure drop when the toilet is flushed.
