Question about Pegasus Technologies Two-Piece Round Toilet by Pegasus - 15 3/4 Inch Bowl Rim Height

1 Answer

The toilet is very poorly desigend - the cheap plastic flush handle is not designed to carry the weight of flipping the tank within the bowl. Of course the handle broke off - what do I do now - short of simply going and buying a good brand like American Standard that has worked for over 100 years?

You said it.

Pegasus stuff is designed to fail from what I've seen. Every faucet or fixture they have is prone to failure.

Go back to your place of purchase and have the part replaced under warranty.

Have a Duo Flush System from FluidMaster. It continuest to ghost flush. Have adjusted the float valve several times but is still ghost flushes. How can I stop this?


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

f the toilet bowl overflows, use a plunger or auger to eliminate clogs. If the toilet does not flush, tighten or replace the defective handle , adjust or replace the lift chain , or replace the flush mechanism. Jiggling the handle forces the lift chain or rod to re-seat the flush mechanism, telling you that something is awry.

If the bowl drains sluggishly, remove the clog with a plunger or auger, or raise the water level in the tank .

If water runs continuously through the toilet, lower the water level in the tank , adjust or replace a lift chain or wire , repair or replace a worn flush valve , clean or replace the valve seat assembly .

If water appears under the tank, tighten the tank hold-down bolts , lower the water level in the tank, replace the float valve , replace a malfunctioning ball , or tighten nuts on the water supply line, replace leaking supply line . As a last resort, re-seat the toilet .

If the seat is cracked or unsightly, replace it .

If the bowl or tank is cracked or otherwise unacceptable, replace the entire toilet .

When flushing, only a small amount of water leaves the tank, and the bowl just empties. The chain has a little slack to close, however, it does not hesitate at all. When flushing, the chain lifts the...


Try holding the handle down until the tank empties completely. If the tank leaks into the bowl during or after refill, the flapper is defective and not sealing correctly.

Misbehaving toilet


The included link should provide some help in determining your specific design. Depending on your specific design the flapper is a critical component in controlling the amount of water released from the tank during flush.

The appearance of water flushing is in fact created by the siphon action of the water falling down through the drain pipe.

Any restriction in the down stream drain flow can give the appearance of a bad flush. So the problem may not be flush, but a restriction in the drain pipe, or trap-way or outlet.

Using a bucket filled with water pour water quickly into bowl and observe the flush action. Compare the action with another toilet using the bucket. If the flush appears adequate and the water from the tank flows slowly check for salt buildup at the nozzle end of the outlet from the tank into the bowl.

In the design below there is a transfer tube that injects air into the trap. This provides a vacuum to promote the siphon during flush. A leak or failed seal in this transfer tube would result in poor flush.

If drains are slow, particularly if you hear a "gurgling" sound at fixtures during draining, I'd suspect that the building vent system is blocked restricted. A restricted drain is much more likely than a restricted vent. Small children are likely to have placed non biodegradable toys etc into the toilet and they may have gotten trapped. Build up in the vent pipe is also common.
In this example ice is blocking the vent!

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.

The amount of water in any toilet bowl is determined by its construction and no tank adjustment will ever change that. American Standard has a history of having small water surface areas in their low or ultra low flush toilets. Take a large container of water and pour directly into the bowl. If the ending level remains the same, then that is the manufactured level for your toilet.

Not all tanks completely discharge all of the water when flushed. Measure 1.5 gallons of water into a container. Turn off your water supply to the toilet then flush normally. Replace the water in the tank with your premeasured amount and observe this new water level. You might be surprised to find it is at the same level it always is. Since water weighs more than 8 pounds per gallon, one concept used in todays toilets is to have more than 1.5 gallons of water in the tank and use the extra weight push the water past the flapper at a faster rate while designing the flapper to drop after only 1.5 gallons have passed through.

How do you remove the flush handle


Virtually all flush handles are secured by a white or black plastic nut on the inside of the tank at the point where the lever comes through the tank wall. It is loostened by turning it clockwise instead of counterclockwise.

The siphon mechanism works on a vacuum principle. If there is the slightest damage to the siphon membrane you will experience the problem you describe. A new siphon is required.

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
