If bowl is emptying, the most common cause is a crack in the bowl. I have however seen a string get hung in the throat and siphon the water out slowly. May want to pull stool and take a good look. Hope this helps.

My toilet flushes, then the water in the bowl drains over 4-5 minutes resulting in sewer gas smells.


Look inside the tank under the lid, it sounds like the flapper that lets the water into the bowl is getting hung up on something when you flush. It could be the flushing lever. This would cause the flapper to stay open letting water to just pour into the open sewer line. It should be a simple fix. Just see what is binding the flapper & make an adjustment.

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.

Hello. Your toilet is leaking through the flush valve. This is a serious issue as it will use a huge amount of water every day. Check to be sure there is not an obstruction in the tank and if you can not find one, call the plumber. J.

I have the Kohler model 703 one piece toilet. It runs once about every ten minutes. It sounds just like a flush but nothing happens in the bowl. Any ideas?


Something is leaking. Your description sounds like tank water is slowly leaking and then the tank refills. You really need to use Kohler brand parts, as others pieces seem to not work well.

My Mansfield No. 35 toilet - it flushes fine and then the bowl slowly empties over the day until the bowl is empty. There is no leaking of water and the water is full in the tank. Help??


You are describing a couple of possible problems, neither of which have super easy solutions.
The worst case senario is that there is a crack in the passageway the water travels when it is flushed and just happens to be at a spot that allows the leaky water to go into the floor drain and not on the floor. This is most likely to happen in a brand new toilet situation in which case you take the bowl back to where it was purchased and exchange it.

The most likely scenario however is that there is some form of material caught in the passageway and is "wicking" the water out of the bowl. As water in the bowl disappears from view when you flush, it travels uphill for a moment....over a hump..and then down to continue its journey to the sewer drain. When a piece of material is caught laying over that hump with one end in the bowl water and the other end hanging in empty space, it will draw the water out of the bowl "wick" just like a wick in an oil lamp sucks the oil up through it so the flame continues to burn the oil and not the wick.
Often times just using a plunger vigorously, after a flush and the bowl has refilled, for a couple of minutes will help get the pesky piece over the hump. Otherwise only a special toilet snake (most often called a closet auger) will solve this issue. If you need to get this auger, Do NOT think if it costs more then it must be better. They can range up to $35 or more. You should be able to get this tool, that hopefully you will never have to use again, for between $10 to $15

Cadet 3 round bowl toilet not flushing all from bowl


You are probably correct, the water level needs to be raised. There are many different toilet tank systems, but all have some way to control the water level in the tank. Let me know if you need help figuring it out...

P.S. You'll have to take the lid off the tank, first...pardon me if that is too obvious

Toilet will not flush


It sound like you have debris caught in the fill valve. Remove the top where the washer is and put your hand over it and slowly turn the water on to flush the fill valve. Replace the washer with a new one and then replace the top.

If you have the old ball and **** style, replaceing the diaphram is harder so I would recommend replacing it with a fluidmaster fill valve. Hope this helps.
