Turn clcokwise to rasie water level, don't mess with the weights unless adjusting the screw to get water to proper height does not do the trick.

Eljer Windsor One Piece Toilet help - leaks water into bowl


I would go back with the ballcock kind. However, the flapper will need to be replaced. It is not seating properly. The fluid master is a revised version and a bit more efficient. It should work well also. They both work off buoyancy and shuts off water the same way.

Eljer toilet bolts rusted causing massive flooding


Turn off the water at the supply (under the toilet, usually).Flush the tank to remove all water from the tank.Disconnect the supply from the tank.Remove bolt caps or bolt covers from where the toilet bolts to the bathroom floor.Remove bolts from the floor flange. When you lift the toilet up, you'll see a metal or plastic flange. If the toilet has been there for a long time the bolts may not pull out of the flange easily. In this case you may have to use a small hacksaw to cut the bolt below the nut.Put newspaper or an old towel on the floor so you can place the old toilet on it. Lift the toilet off the flange.Take the new bowl (assuming this is a two-piece toilet) and turn it upside down. Position the wax ring on the horn of the outlet. Install new solid brass flange bolts, mount them and position them on the centerline on either side of the outlet.Push the bowl down over the bolts and seal the outlet. The wax will squeeze down and seal.Put the new bolts, washers and bolt caps on. You may have to trim the bolt with a hacksaw.Once the bolts are secure, mount the tank.Make sure the gasket between the tank and toilet is in place. Then position the tank on the bowl. Run bolts through the tank and secure. Don't over tighten (the tank can crack).Hook up the water supply line.Connect the supply to the line on the bottom of the tank.Turn on the water.Let the tank fill.Flush once or twice to make sure the water control is properly adjusted.Put the tank lid on.Enjoy.

This summer I purchased a eljer toilet. it listed as a 10 flush which is the best I guess. now it is continually turning on to level out the tank. is this normal for eljer toilets? and if not what has to...


ok, this sounds like a float or valve issue, should be an easy fix. you can adjust the float or just replace it with the one piece type. you may not be able to adjust it and get it to work, so I think the best thing to do is just replace the whole float assembly. About ten dollars or so at home depot or someplace like that. Turn off the supply valve, flush the toilet,and drain the tank by removing the plastic nut underneath on the left side. Drain the remaining water into a bowl. There is also a nut on the supply line that will need to be removed first. When you remove the nut that is flush with the bottom of the tank that also holds the valve in place inside. Take off the rubber hose inside the tank and remove the entire float and valve. The new one piece will have a adjustment for the tank level by just turning the entire unit. Make sure you put the rubber washer that is supplied with it on the bottom and put it back into the tank and tighten from the bottom with the new plastic nut. Make sure the valve inside is pointed at the plastic tube and re-attach the rubber hose. Then attach the supply line, tight, but not with a tool, just your hand. Turn on the supply valve, re-fill the tank, flush, and check for leaks. Remember, buy the one piece type, should be a gray valve with a black float built right on it. Good luck

My Eljer toilet does not always flush completely. It is approximately 20 years old. I don't believe that it is a venting problem. I have dismounted, inspected and remounted the toilet and found nothing...


Not being a plumber by trade I don't want to bad mouth what your plumber had to say but there may be other things to consider.
If the toilet does not flush directly into the main drain there is the possibilty that the coupling between the main drain and the toilet drain is under-sized which could cause reduced water flow and your toilet not flushing completely.

I havve two Eljer non-wateraver toilet (Patriot?)


I've never had a problem with Eljer toilets. Try adjusting the fill valve so that it allows more water to enter the tank (if you're over the flush valve, install a coupler made from PVC around the neck of the flush valve- inside diameter of the coupler needs to be the same as the outside diameter of the flush valve filler neck).

No water at flush


sound like the water shut-off needs to be replaced.
if you turn on/off the shut-off, the tank get enough water to flush, then you get less water every time you use the toilet. that is the shut-off valve problem.
you may able to to just change the rubber seal.
I have not found change the seal will last as long as a new valve. better off, just change one.

The water continue to run for a long time


You are probably going to have to replace the fill valve.

There is a chance that adjusting it may work, but it has most likely become worn and partially clogged with hard watrer deposits, dirt, etc.

This will cause it to fill slower, and cause the fill level valve to close slower resulting in higher water level. Eventually it would simply overflow the flush valve tube.

Try adjusting the fill level, but plan on the likelyhood of replacing the fill valve.
