The Saniplus has a pressure chamber and at the bottom is a rubber membrane which acts as a float switch. Water pressure pushes up on the membrane, the unit turns on, pumps out the waste and as the pressure is released, the membrane goes back down and shuts off. So the problem might be a warped membrane, something stuck at the bottom of the membrane or the microswitch may be stuck on the on position. You will have to open the unit and remove the motor and pressure chamber to inspect it. Also the water level on the toilet is meant to be very low, Saniflo uses a rear discharge toilet, not a bottom discharge (standard toilet). Unfortunately the water level cannot be adjusted on Saniflo toilets.

Hi keith

Bloues hear.
the water level in the boul is standerd to the manefactuer. the plumber cant help for that. if u put a level on ur toilet and iets level there is noting u can do about it.. the water that keeps on runing is ur seal rubber, its located at the bottem of ur flush meganusum. step 1.... tack off sistern aka pump. then step 2 ... unscrew your flush meganusem, will be the 1 in the middel of sistern. step 3 ... after unsrewing it u wil see there is a rubber. if the rubber looks fine then u must ajust ur flush meganisems arm or lubricate it. bt if rubber is misformed or teared ... u must go to a plumbing shop with the rubber. they will give u new 1 for cheap. and u can just reaplace it and esembel the sistern again

Toilet stools whistle after flushing


This could be caused by the sound of water jetting into the water tank. Just open the tap to the water tank slightly more until the whistling stops. The flusher valve in the tank may be leaking, causing the water jet to open again and the whistling noise.

How do I get the water to stop filling the tank on my toto ST794S toilet?


there should be a screw adjustment on the ballcock or fill assembly...screw that down some to adjust...that regulates your tank water level....that screw goes in or out to adjust...one or other should do the trick...may have to do this a few times to get proper adjustment...good luck..

I have a 703A5B fluid master flush unit on my toilet when I flush the water fills the dump tank then keeps running


Hi pete4270...
You can try setting the water level a bit lower by lowering the float ball.
This may solve your problem.
If the flushing unit is still leaking by, then it is time to replace it, there is no repair to these units.

How do I clean this humidifer? I have the sesame street elmo and friends cool mist humidifier and I cannot find the manual for cleaning instructions. thank you


The outside you can clean with warm soapy water. The inside can be flushed with a 50/50 solution of White Vinegar and Bottled Distilled Water. Fill the tank and run the unit until the tank is almost empty. Pour out the remaining solution and fill the tank with more of the Bottled Distilled Water. Operate the unit for 30 minutes and the previous solution should have been flushed out by then. I would recommend using Bottled Distilled Water all the time rather than tap water. As tap water has a lot of minerals in it that can cause calcium scale and clog the unit.

Hope this helped you.

Pump noise in rear of car keeps running / Gas pump or load leveller / seems longer run time olately in cold weather ( 1999 olds aurora)


you might have a leak in the rear suspension load leveler. check connections with soapy water. locate where sound is coming from. fuel pump in tank is a slight hum and not that noticable, but the air comp for load leveler is. Also spray around rubber boots on shocks, also check load leveler switch on axle to frame for broken or loose lever control.

I bought an American Standard toilet about 3 months ago, ever since it was installed (by me) the water in the tank continues to run like its trying to fill it up. I have tried numerous time to adjust the...


There are several things you can check. Make sure that adjustment on flush handle to flapper is free and not binding and holding flapper open.Make sure that seating surface for flapper is clean and does not have any rough spots on it.If it does you can empty tank and dry it off then sand any rough spots with sandpaper. Also make sure that tube from flush valve to overflow tube is not below water level in tank when it shuts off as this can cause it to syphon water out of tank and refill. If it needs to be trimmed then cut tube so it is above water level in tank. Hope this helps. Thank you.
