Check the float in your tank and watch it and make sure it is not hitting the sides of the tank to not allow it to fill up.

Why doesn't the waste go all the way down? It takes several flushes.


Welcome to our new world of water conservation. If you have a toilet that isn't newer....you have something in your trap weir. Or your flapper is malfunctioning. Or your float valve isn't filling your tank correctly. Or your bowl scouring ports could be clogged. There are sooo many things that could cause this....
.New toilets do this because their design to use less water has reached the point of no-longer working to clear the bowl contents. Plain and simple. It has became the norm to flush once for #1's and flush (how ever many it takes to flush all waste) for #2's.
Back to old styles...You can remove the tank top and inspect the water level in the tank(should be about a 1/2" below overflow tube when full), inspect the flapper(flush the toilet and see if your flapper is staying up long enough to allow enough water to enter the bowl to cause a syphon action that ends with a suction sound and complete emptying of the water from the bowl), flush your toilet and look in the bowl to see if the water spraying from your rim is adequately dispensing water to scour the sides of the bowl, and also look at the jet that shoots water from the bottom of the bowl...aimed toward the outlet portion of the very bottom of the interior bowl. This jet is what starts the syphon action that empties your bowl. If you have something stuck in your trap weir....you probably need to call your Plumber to auger the object out or break it down to a size that will pass into the sewer.
The small ports that spray your sides can be cleared with a 3/16" stiff nylon brush...the jet down below can be cleared with a 1" stiff nylon brush. Flapper malfunction is repaired by replacing the flapper. Incorrect water level in the tank can be fixed by adjusting the valve float. but chances are that if it is all of a sudden malfunctioning...it probably needs to be replaced...good luck and always know how to turn your water off before starting work on your plumbing.
Be gentle with the parts inside your toilet tank. Using a calcium remover when clearing bowl inner ports and jets will help tremendously....but be certain to read the container and follow all handling/use instructions you read. Be careful.....Nick

Tip

Empty Toilet a Bowl


Anytime you want to remove a toilet, you're usually facing the problem of how to get the water out of the bowl.
First, turn off the water
Flush, and hold the lever down until it has nothing more to drain out of the tank.
But then, you're still stuck with a full bowl of water.
Here's the trick
Fill a bucket with about 1 to 2 gallons of water.
Pour it fairly rapidly into the bowl all at once.
Because of siphon action, and nothing to refill, it will drain 90% of the water out of the bowl, leaving about a cup of water in the bowl.
If you have to have it completely empty, you can use a small hand pump, but in most cases, it's low enough for you to just carry out the way it is.

My Mansfield toilet flushes but only 1/3 of the water in the tank flows out during a flush and the bowl does not get enough water to flush everything.


Check the water level int he tank for it coming up to fill line in tank. Make sure the 1/4 " fill line from the fill valve is connected and in the stand pipe tube to allow water to fill bowl. Fluid master makes a flapper that has adjustments on it to increase or decrease water used to flush. It has a dial to move on it this would be another option if the above tried doesn't help.

Thansk and I hope this will help you with this problem.

Just installed the cadet 3 and here is what is happening. First let me say that the toilet it replaced was working good. The water filled very slow and the bowl would not fill much. I messed with the...


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.

Just hooked up new pressure asist tank & bowl,turned on water to it,and it want flush.what i mean about want flush, is it will flush but water does'nt go down,as if it's not staying open long enough.


Sounds like you have a clogged drainline or vent-stack. Fill a large bucket with about three gallons of water and dump it quickly into the bowl. If the drainline/vent is clear, the toilet will "flush" like a gravity toilet and the water will drain from the bowl almost as fast as you can pour it in.

If the water level in the bowl slowly rises (as if it's about to overflow) and then slowly drains, you have a clog somewhere.

All toilets, regardless of their flushing mechanism, require a clear, unoibstructed drain/waste/vent system to extract waste.

If the toilet "flushes" with the bucket of water, you may want to call Flushmate tech support (the number is on top of the tank) or check out the installation and troubleshooting videos at howto.flushmate.com.

Hope this helps.

My toile tank does not completly flush, I have to hold the lever up untill all the water in the tank emptys and complete flushing occures. What is the solution?.


Sounds like the adjust on the flapper has to much slack on the chain. It's not raising it up enough to flush correctly.
Adjust that and make sure water level in tank is correct at least up to mark in tank or about 5/8" to top of overflow .
Also check fill line and make sure it is connected to overflow also this allows bowl to fill up.

Our Toto bowl does not fill up enough after flushing unless the lever is held down. What do I do to fix it? We have well water and a bit of mineral does build up on the fill tube.


The only adjustment available is to control how full the tank will be for the next flush. The water that runs down into the bowl after flushing comes through the same valve that fills the tank, so the problem (and solution) is entirely with the amount of water that runs into the bowl while the tank is filling. The tank is filling sooner than enough replacement water can run into the bowl. Make sure that the tube (usually a 1/2 inch rubber tube) that runs from the float valve to the pipe that fills the bowl (usually a 1 inch pipe with an open top) is actually delivering all of it's flow down that pipe. If the flow of water being delivered by that tube is slow, you will have to find and eliminate the restriction. You might be able to pull of the rubbber tube off of the float valve and stick a small drill bit (just using your fingers, not a drill) into the fitting where you pulled off the tube.

My Bemis Vitra A toilet does not completely flush. I ran a snake down the drain pipe, and this seems to be clear. I think the flap on the toilet may be closing prematurely. Do you have any suggestions?...


I don't know what you have tried yet, so I will start at the beginning. First, I would make sure that you have the proper amount of water filling the tank. If you do not have enough water in the tank, it will not flush the bowl properly. Next, ensure that when the flush handle is tripped it fully lifts the plunger to a close to vertical position. This can be adjusted with your chain. If it is only rising a small amount, this will cause an improper flush. Lastly, if those things seem good, check the actual plunger (aka flapper) to ensure that it is in good condition, and that it does not fill with water. Hope this helps.

After the tank fills water contiues to flow thru


The fill valve needs replacement unless you can take the top off snd find out what is keeping it from closing. I had one I took apart for the same reason and found a piece of plastic in the valve seat. Good Luck, Ned
