Question about Eljer Toilet Onepiece Canterbury 081162047

1 Answer

Hello.I live in an older mobile home. We just moved it on the property this past september. Our problem is our toilets rarely fill so that we can flush them. We usually have to fill a bucket with water and do it that way. The tanks in both bathrooms rarely fill on their own but ocassionally do. Can you offer any help?

Toilet is working perfect, fills to correct level, but it takes a long time to fill after flushing. It is not leaking out

Low water pressure.
The inlet valve isn't opening fully.
Small bore pipework.

Is the water pressure good in the rest of the property?
Is so then there may be an isolation valve on the toilet which isn't fully open.

Jabsco toilet fails to fill

Was the toilet "Winterized" last fall? If so, have you assured that any plug in the clean water intake has been removed? If NOT -- are you sure the pump has not been frozen and internally damaged by ice? The pump is a simple device which rarely fail unless its inlet is blocked, or the pump seals or body are damaged - usually by freezing.

How to unfreeze toilet pipes in a mobile home

I live in a mobile home park and that is what i do as the park handyman. The fastest way... cut the pipe with a recipricating saw and remove a long section. Knock it to let all the ice slide out. bring it into a warm shop for a while if you have to or run warm water through it. place a micro furnace near the sewer and use a heatgun if more ice is at the other end. Once things are clear, use two 3 inch fernco adapters and clamp everything back together. (i always keep a couple on hand just in case this happens) Make sure the lean is perfectly angled with no place for water to sit or this is what happens.

I live in a mobile home park. I do all the electrical and plumbing and everything else. You can put an ordinary toilet in. So long as there is a flange. If there is not one you can put one in anywhere you choose. Then underneath you can run the 3 inch line to the main trunk going to the sewer. Don't worry about it freezing being below the insulation. Keep the angle so that it empties fast so there is nothing inside to build up and freeze. If where the toilet used to be has some bad plywood cut out a square to put in a square of new plywood. Measure where the old one was beforehand and mark where you want to put the new 3 1/2 inch hole (usually 12 inches from the framing to center), cut your hole using screws with large heads (maybe even stainless steel) screw down the flange. Using solvent glue the new section to the old section etc.

Uberhaus toilet fill valve will not open to let tank fill

Maybe something wrong with the mechanism inside the toilet fill valve. Try to adjust the fill valve first. I found this one about adjusting fill valve, I hope it can help you.


If the problem remain after adjusting the fill valve then I will suggest you to buy a new toilet fill valve and replace with the old one.

Kohler toliets can be a pain to repair. I have found with them that the only thing to do with them is go to a plumbing company, take the model number with you and replace all in the inner parts to it. You will replace the fill valve and flush valve. After I do this on Kohler I don't have anymore problems with them. It should work for you, just make sure they are Kohler parts. Good Luck

Toilet is only a couple years old but gets a ring at the water line that won't come off. I have 3 other toilets in the house much, much older that don't have this problem. This one is rarely used. ...

The problem is as you said it is rarely used and the ring is from the lime build up from the water evaporating at the same line all the time. You will need to use or at least flush the toilet more often and maybe put a auto type bowl cleaner unit in this toilet. The auto unit I speak of would be a hang in or tablet type.
I do not mean to recommend on over any other.

The toilet takes a long time to refill after a flush would there be a certain part that is plugged or wore out ?

Is the flapper valve slow to return to the closed postion allowing water to flow through the flush valve? Make sure the toilet flapper is moving freely and is sealing properly against the flush valve. If there is no lengthy or continual water flow in to the toilet bowl then this is not the problem.

Is the water valve on the water fill line to the toilet tank fully open? This may seem silly but it could be this simple.

Check to make sure your fill valve is opening fully. If you have an older toilet there may be some deposits that need to be cleaned way to allow free movement.

If toilet does eventually fill to the desired level, there is no leakage, water valve on fill line is fully open and fill valve is opening fully then recommend you shut off water supply, drain toilet and disconnect water fill line from the water valuve and toilet tanke to make sure there is not a blockage. If the water line and connections are clear you may need to remove the fill pipe in the tank and check for blockage. If this is very old, conisdering the cost and effort, it may be simpler to replace at this time rather than trying to extend the life.

We have an brand new Cimmaron two piece. It has only been in for a week. Twice the tank emptied compeltely on a flush and did not refill. We have to fill the tank manually to get things working. Once we do...

Sounds like the fill valve may have something stuck in the part that makes the water shut off. This can cause it not to refill as it doesn't let the inner mechanism work as it should. If your home is a little older and depending on the piping in the home it is possible in the change that some debris passed through the system when the water was turned on. Another possible issue is that when attaching the water to the tank the fill valve was turned to where the float for the mechanism is jammed against the side of the tank and is not moving freely with the water. If this is the case then the entire body of the fill valve will need to be twisted so the float can move freely. Aside from these things, you may want to simply replace the fill valve to avoid any further complications or issues. Don't worry, anyone can do it and is only about $10 to do. I recommend Fluidmaster brand, they come with really good instructions.
