Question about Kallista Michael S Smith Loft One-Piece Toilet with Seat and Chrome Trim

1 Answer

Toiliet Drips in bowl for a while after you flush

We bought some Kallista toilets 7 years ago at a Kohler fire sale. They are beautiful, but we where told they were european style which meant they flushed differently I guess. They did say that they will drip a bit after you flush, but our one seems to be dripping a lot longer now < 30 minutes and then stops. It does not drip enough to cause it to refill, it is just annoying. I did notice that the water line mark on the tak is lower then the fill tube waterline (which I think I replaced a year or so ago) and the tank fills to the fill tube line. Could it be that I need to adjust the fill line to the tank?

Check flapper out and adjust water level in tank to proper level. If you get level right and it still does drip it sounds like the flapper is not sealing correctly to shut off water.

Toilet flappers are not to expensive and you can touch it with your hand and if you get a black residue off on your hands that a sign it needs replacing.

Flushing problems

Tank needs more water and the flapper has to stay open longer by adjusting chain so the flapper goes up higher when you flush the unit. Practice and you will get it right.

I have what is known as a kohler ultraflush on my bill of sale, that is a 2 piece elongated model. Not sure if it's called the Cimmaron or not. Anyway, it's not flushing with the same force that it did...

Hi, W/D here.

Three things can affect the flushing force of an ultraflush:
1. The amount of water going into the bowl from the tank. Check to make suer that the water level in the tank is up to the fill line. Normally the line is cast into the inside of the tank, but may be on the tube. Adjust if low.
2. The supply water pressure. An ultraflush requires 25 psig pressure to provide the assist in flushing. Make sure that your toilet water supply line valve (at the wall) is fully open. If so, check your water supply pressure. The easiest way is to install a gauge on an outside faucet (you can get a gauge in the sprinkler section of the hardware store, and it attaches to a faucet). You may need to replace your flexible water supply line; they can collapse internally, or get debris in them.
3. Restrictions in the outflow. A bit harder to check, but the tell-tale sign would be if the water level rises significantly, and drains slowly.
My best guess is that the assist pressure is low, and I'd look for restrictions in the supply side first.

Best regards, --W/D--

Master bath toilet replaced with a Cimmeron class 6 confort height toilet. The master bath toilet backs up to the hall bath toilet - same wall. The hall toilet is very old. When the old toilet is flushed,...

Kohler is correct. The most likely cause of this problem is an obstruction in the common vent stack that both toilets share. When you flush the old toilet it need more air to flush and will get it from the easiest source (your new water saver toilet). First adjust the float level in the old toilet so it won't use as much water or just stick a brick in the tank to take up space.Second, run a snake down the vent stack from the roof to check for obstructions. Birds will sometimes nest in there.
