The Flushmate system won't cause or contribute to water draining or leaking from the bowl.

Negative back-pressure in your drain/waste/vent piping could be siphoning the water out or you may have a crack in the bottom of the bowl or trapway that's allowing the water to leak out.

If the floor under the toilet (actually underneath it) or around the edge where it's caulked to the floor is wet, your bowl may be cracked. If not, your plumbing system may be siphoning the water.

Either way, you can exclude the Flushmate from the equation and focus on the porcelain fixture and your drain/waste/vent system.

Hope this helps.

How do I lower the water level in the toilet bowl of a Slone Flushmate? It keeps getting higher, little by little after each flush.


The flush valve may be defective but some tinkering with the refill level setting may work.

How can I remove the Flushmate 503 to access the mounting screws at the bottom of the tank?


You will need to remove the china holding tank from the toilet bowl by removing the nuts on the underside of the china tank.

After you have the tank off the bowl, remove the two plastic lock-nuts used to mount the Flushmate into the china tank and slide the Flushmate out of the china tank.

After you install the new tank-to-bowl bolts & washers, reverse the process to reinstall the Flushmate unit and remount the china tank.

The water level in my Toto Drake toilet bowl is normal right after a flush, but often is very low a few hours later.


The bowl is cracked and is leaking down the drain. You will have to replace it. It may have cracked if the bowl hold-down bolts were overtightened, or the bowl was not able to sit flush (pardon the pun) on the floor. If the bowl rocks when it is first installed, instead of tightening the hold-down bolts, use a couple of tapered shims under the edge of it, then caulk to fill the gap and hide the shims.
Good luck.

My flushmate toilet got clogged. I have unstopped the clog, but it won't flush. The flushing process works, but the water isn't pushed down the drain.


My flushmate toilet was stopped up after a bm.

Because I could not get to it right away, I let it

sit for several days. Tried calling the Flushmate

800 number. They don\'t work on weekends and

it was Saturday. What to do? Read the info on

the internet but could not find solution. However

first I shut off intake water valve required for any service

performed. Did that. Got a large plastic spoon.

Fashioned a container out of supermarket paper

bag cut in half. Used bottom half and inserted it

inside double Safeway plastic bags. Scooped out

the toilet paper and feces into bag. Found most

of feces had disintegrated in the toilet coloring

water dark brown. That was a good sign. Less

solid matter to flush. Tossed bag into garbage.

Flushed the toilet and it worked perfectly. This

method works for stopped toilet only. If problem

is in the sewer line, you need another method.

Flushmate 503 sprays water out of top of tank, apparently coming for under the flushmate system. The valve doesn't seem to leak. Iahve pressure tested it.


Turn off the water supply at the wall, flush the toilet to relieve the pressure inside the Flushmate, and call Flushmate Consumer Services at 800-533-3460 M-F, 8:00 - 4:30 ET.

They'll need to know the serial number and approximate date of installation of the Flushmate.

You could alos fill out a confidential "contact" form on the contact page of the Web site, www.flushmate.com.

If yu need to use the toilet in the meantime, you can "bucket flush" it by pouring 2 to 3 gallons of water into the bowl. This will generate a standard siphonic flush and won't give you the pressureized extractiopn but it will keep the toilet usable until a Flushmate support tech can diagnose the issue and provide a resolution.

Good luck!

I have 5 kohler pressure assist toilets with flushmate 503 series tanks in my home. Several of my bowls have minimal to no bowl rinse. My water pressure is more than adequate. I recently changed a...


There are two holes in the top of the bowl where the tank attaches. As you indicate, one hole delivers water to the jet at the inlet to trap passageway, and another smaller hole to direct water to the rim.

I have seen in some cases the gasket that seals the tank to the bowl block the smaller rim-fed hole. All you need to do is knotch the gasket where the hole is located and re-install the gasket so the knotch is located over the hole. If you have any other questions please call the 800 phone number on top of the Flushmate.

The toilet will not flush, the tank will not fill and water continuously runs in the bowl


Is it a new installation or was it working before and now there's a problem?

It could be rod-clearance, it could be your water pressure or an obstruction in the inlet-filter, or maybe a couple of other things. Different fixtures have different minimum pressure requirements. Some work at 25 PSI static pressure at the connection but others require a 35 PSI minimum. This should be specified in the OEM's manual that you should have received with the toilet.

Some very informative troubleshooting videos are available for viewing at http:howto.flushmate.com

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.
