Toilet flushes but bowl won't fill up


Adjust the level in the tank. It should be filled to the level mark on the rear of the tank. Adjustment is by the screw on the float, or lever depending on which country you are. Some tanks are Dual Flush, small flush for waste water (short press), long flush for solids (press and hold). See the link.

How to install a new flush valve


  • Flush valves are held to the tank by one large jam nut on the bottom of the tank. Installing a new flush valve usually requires removing the toilet tank from the bowl, which can be rather complicated. However, wall-mounted tanks may not need to be removed.

  • If the toilet tank must be removed, turn the water off completely, flush the toilet and hold the trip lever down to evacuate most of the tank water. Use a sponge to remove the remaining water. Disconnect the tank's inlet fitting from the water supply. If the flexible riser tube is damaged, replace it.

  • Then, unscrew the two rubber-gasketed bolts flanking the flush valve. These bolts go through the tank and bowl flange, with nuts beneath. Use caution–forcing the bolts may cause you to break the tank, bowl or both. Use plenty of penetrating oil on the threads. If they still won't budge without force, try wrapping masking tape around a hacksaw blade and sawing with the teeth facing you, so the blade cuts on the "pull" stroke. The layer of masking tape will protect the bowl's glazed surface from saw scratches.

  • The tank should now lift away from the bowl. Lay it upside-down on a throw rug or newspaper padding to protect it, and unscrew the large nut holding the flush valve to the tank. Use channel-locking pliers plus penetrating oil and extreme care to avoid breakage. Clamp a well-padded locking plier/wrench around the flush valve to keep it from rotating inside the tank.

  • Install the new flush valve according to the directions. The rubber gasket goes on the inside of the tank to prevent leakage. The flat washer fits on the outside to prevent tank damage.

  • Use new brass tank hold-down bolts, which will remain workable. Tighten the bolts just enough to compress the tank's soft rubber gasket and keep it from leaking.

  • Install the water supply riser to the tank and turn on the water.

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.

To short of flush


Take the top off the tank and look at the water height. Adjust the float valve to raise the water to the line on the back of the tank. There is usually a little screw.

If the tank is already high, try holding the flush lever down. Newer tanks are dual flush, which a short flush with a quick press and release (for having a wee), and a long flush holding the handle down for ... well you get the picture :>)

My flush has stuck on, how can this be sorted.?


Close the Inlet Water valve to the Flush Tank.
Remove the lid on top of the Tank cover.
Check the link/chord connecting the flush knob and the Flush valve.
It might be broken.
Normally the Flush Tank lever, which is outside the Tank lifts the Flush valve at the bottom of the Tank.

The tank bolts do not get removed. The flush valve is mounted in a hole toward the rear of the tank. The nut under the tank is removed to allow removal of the flush valve from the inside of the tank. The replacement flush valve is inserted into the hole inside the tank and the nut is installed to fasten it in place

Power flush toilet does not power flush


Usually when the power flush does not work it is because a leak has developed in the pressurized tank. They are known to develop leaks, usually along the molding lines. I am not sure if the tanks are replaceable. Or, it could be something as simple as the flush leaver not engaging the valve assembly on the tank. Take of the tank lid and try to flush and let me know what you see. Good Luck

My toilet only leaks when flushed. It seems to be coming from the connection at the tank. The tank is not cracked and a new hose from tank to shut off valve has been installed. The toilet is only 4 years...


If you have 2-part toilet, then tank is attached to bowl with 2 bolts.
Look inside tank and you can see bolts with rubber washers located on either side of flush valve.
The 2 bolts hold tank and bowl together and between tank and bowl is a washer called the spud washer.
So spud washer could be leaking ... or 2 bolts could be leaking.

1) If bolts are leaking, there is usually dripping all the time, and drips are visible on bottoms of bolts
If spud washer is leaking, then tank could leak only when tank is flushed.

2) First thing to try is tightening nuts on the 2 bolts. Nuts may be loose. Tighten nuts a few turns, and check if toilet still leaks.

3) To fix a spud washer, you usually need a new generic one from hardware store.
Newer tanks with 1.6 gallon flush have special sized spud washer.

If you cannot find new spud washer, re-use old one and smear retorseal on it during re-assembly to make sure it seals. Rectoseal is good for many home plumbing repairs. More about that in a moment.

4) To take apart tank: Disconnect supply line to tank. Empty water out of tank. Remove nuts from bolts. Lift tank off. Wash out tank with hose. Make sure there is no sand or sediment left in bottom that might clog up flush holes located inside bowl after tank is re-assembled.

5) Remove old spud washer, and put new one on. Do a google-image search for 'spud washer' if you need more photos. New spud washer fits over flush valve. That's it. And then reassemble tank.
If you want to apply rectorseal to washer, put washer on as shown in photo above. Then smear-or-gawm rectorseal over area of washer that sits on bowl. Rectorseal will make sure there is no more leaking.

I hav got oil in my petrol tank how should i get it cleaned its affecting my bike performance and also misfires sumtimes


Flushing the tank with gasoline should solve the problem. Remove the tank and empty the existing gas. Close the petrol valve, fill with about 1/4 tank, slosh about and drain. You may also need to flush the carburetor and replace the spark plug. With rust build-up in the tank, or a very stubborn problem, you may need to flush the tank with Muriatic Acid.
