TOILET WONT FLUSH AWAY PROPERLY

Just had a new toilet installed, a modern dual flush system, but it seems when you flush it seems to push up the water in the bowl then drain
rather than pushing it all down and away, plumber thinks its maybe that
on some toilets the water now comes thru holes under the rim which takes
away some pressure, not sure, any answers please

I believe what your plumber was referring to are the flushing orifices. Yes they have changed through the years. Unless you have a pressure assisted toilet, the orifices are what makes it flush, by breaking the trap seal and creating a vacuum. Now that being said you can check to see if this is the problem by filling up a bucket with aprox. 2 gallons of water and dumping it straight into the bowl. It should flush right down with out hesitation. If it does then your orifices are not working properly. If this is a new stool, it is possible it is just a bad mold and should be replaced. I hope this helps. Your new toilet should flush for you.

Is there a way to change the toilet from front flush to top flush to accommodate the button on the top of the unit in the tank?


So did the top not come with the tank itself, is it a replacement? Or is it a tank where you can choose top or front flushing?

In my experience the mechanism for top flush is more complicated than front flush which just lifts the flapper. Take the top off and look. See if there is a link that can be taken from the front and clipped to the top. you state is has a 'self contained unit', so it doesn't sound like a standard lifting flapper, so you may well be able to choose.

Uberhaus dual flush toilet keeps running


The flapper may not be seating properly after a flush. Even though you say the toilets are brand new, something may be askew in the flushing assembly or may have been affected during installation

Adjust the float on the Fluid-master a little higher if possible. This should allow more water to enter the bowl after the flush.

Weak dual flush does not empty the toilet bowl.


well, yes... but apart from providing you with a forum in which to vent your frustration I'm not sure how you think we might help. I have the same problem with a dual flush cistern, but in my case I know that the root of the problem lies in the fact that the soil pipe leading from the bowl has insufficient fall (because the previous owner of my house moved the toilet further from the down pipe). Maybe something like this is contributing to your problem too?

My toilet does not flush properly. It seems to


You might check under the rim of the toilet, there are about 12 little holes that when you flush water comes out to start the most important part of the flush. The swrill, with out it hard to flush. Talk a piece of wire hanger ( I know "NO WIRE HANGERS") and use it to push up into the holes. Hard water deposits sometimes build up there.

Modern toilet cisterns without overflowprovision


Most modern flush units have built in overflow protection, if the water level rises above the flush device then water runs into the toilet itself rather than out of the overflow pipe to the outside as in older toilets.

You could always check by taking the top off the cistern and push down the float device with your finger to see what happens!

hope this helps
