Lift up the back of your tank on the commode. There is a plastic float inside connected to a metal arm which has a chain connected to your flush handle. The chain probably came off.

Jacuzzi toilet


After flush the system must close the hole which lets water into the toilet. If it does not close after flush, it is continuously letting the water thru. Check if it closes after flush and allows tank to fill.

Flushed toilet and wont stop flushing


take the back top off of the tank and observe that the flush stop has not released from its upright(flush) possition.
If needed , reach in and flip it down to close the valve.
If it is a matter of the water running continuously... then you have to open the tank cover and bend the rod that has the bulb on it down just a bit... to close the fill valve.

Sounds like the water tank keeps filling


2 possibilities.1. The water level is set higher the the overflow tube. This will cause the water to run into the overflow continuously. You should be able to see this. 2. The large seal - bottom center of the tank - is leaking. This will cause the water level to slowly drop after a fill. The water tank will start to run again after flushing - BUT NOT CONTINUOUSLY. You should see if there is a small amount of water flowing from the rim to the bowl 15 seconds after the water has stopped running after a flush.

After flushing, the toilet keeps running. However, if I turn off the water supply, and then turn back on, the toilet stops running until the next time it is flushed. Toilet makes a


It could be the type of flap you are using. I would suggest you try a different shaped flapper (a cone would work best) and if that doesn't do it, put a new kit into the unit, because it could be that the float system is sticking causing it to continue running.

Toilet runs slightly, can minimally depress the handle to release a bit of water, and it will stop. How to fix?


Toilet runs continuously or doesn't flush adequately

Jiggling the handle might work for a while, but if your toilet is always running or doesn't flush adequately, you need to perform these simple fixes that usually can tame a noisy, inefficient toilet.

Check the Chain

The chain attached to the rubber flapper often becomes loose, causing incomplete flushing and/or continuous running. To fix it, remove links from the chain using needle-nosed pliers until it's tight.

Check Water Level

Improper water levels can also cause problems with your toilet. This can be fixed by adjusting the ball ****, which is located next to the overflow pipe, the open tube to the right of the handle. Adjust the ball **** so the water comes to ½ " below the overflow pipe.

Clean the Surface of the Flush Valve

A continuously running toilet can also be the result of a faulty flush valve. Because the valve is made of rubber, it can decompose or warp allowing water to escape from the tank into the bowl. Clean the sealing surface to see if this will improve the seal. If too decomposed or warped the valve may need to be replaced.

Replace the Flapper

Remove old flapper and replace with a suitable replacement. Attach the flapper to the overflow pipe inside the bowl. Then attach the lever chain from the flapper to the handle lever making sure the chain is taut.

On my eljer toilet, I get continuous running of the water. If I shut valve off and pump the tank, the running stops (but only for a week or so). Suggestions? model 150-403 power flush pf/2


I don't know what you mean by "pumping" the tank. If the toilet runs, then either the fill valve is defective or the seal on the flush valve is defective. First, check to see that when you move the float, the toilet stops running. If it does not, then replace the fill valve. If it does, then inspect/replace the seal on the flush mechanism at the bottom of the tank. If this seal is bad, you can usually see water continuously flowing (slowly) into the bowl. You will see ripples on the surface of the water in the bowl.

Your problem is the water fill valve. Check this link.http://www.rd.com/17646/article17646.html
it's not the flapper or flush valve.

The gmax continues to run and won/t stop


if it worked fine and now it has stopped....then there is no adjustment that will fix it. If the fill valve is not shutting off you either need to replace the seal in the valve or get a new fill valve. If the water is leaking past the flapper you will need a new flapper.

I need a blue print on how a sloan urinal flush valve works and how the water flowes through it. if posable exactly how it works.


SLOAN FLUSH VALVES ARE SIMPLE. IT DEPENDES ON THE PROBLEM. IF THE VALVE KEPS RUNNING AFTER IT IS FLUSHED THE RUBBER DIAPHRAM IS DIRTY OR OLD AND THE RUBBER DIAPHRAM IS GETTING HARD. AND STICKING. THE VALVE WORKS ON A VACUME TO CLOSE THE DIAPHRAM TO STOP THE FLUSH PROCESS. WHEN YOU PULL ON THE FLUSH HANDLE YOU BREAK THE VACUME THAT FORM ON THE TOP OF THE DIAPHRAM WHICH ALLOWS THE WATER TO FLOW AS THE WATER FLOWS IT IS ALSO STARTING TO PULL A VACUME IN THE TOP OF THE DIAPHRAM TO CLOSE THE DIAPHRAM AND STOP THE FLUSH.
AS THE DIAPHRAM GET OLD AND WORN IT GETS HARD AND DOES NOT MOVE AS FREELY AND STICKS OPEN AND WON'T LET THE VACUME CLOSE THE DIAPHRAM AND THE URINAL WILL CONTINUE TO FLUSH. HOPE THIS ANSWERED YOU QUESTION
