Toilet Flapper drops too soon and causes incomplete flush. Replaced with new red Korky, and adjusted chain tighter AND looser.


Try adjusting the water level in the tank. Most flappers close as the water in the tank flows out to a certain level. Try allowing more water to come in to the tank. I doubt the weight of the chain has any effect on it closing too early.

Why do i have to hold my toilet lever to flush?


Hi Nathan:
If you lift the tank lid off and flush the toilet you will see that a flapper valve lifts to let the water drain from the tank. The flapper valves are designed to stay in the closed position when the tank fills, but to float when the tank is flushed.
The problem will probably be that the flapper valve no longer floats due to saturation with water, or a leak that has allowed water inside the float.
The fix is to replace the float valve. Parts are available at most hardware and plumbing supply stores.
Cheers

Replaced the flapper, but now have water seeping from the tank into the bowl


You may have to put a weight in the flapper to keep it closed. First try putting pressure in the flapper and let it sit there for a few mnts and check if water still leaking into the bowl, if it does then there could be a crack in the porcelain leaking water or the whole flush valve will need to be replaced. After putting pressure in the flapper and it stops leaking then you just need to put a weight inside the flapper to keep it closed.

Flapper valve closes too quickly


Fill the breather hole (1/8" hole) inside the flapper.This is designed to let air out so the flapper will sink. Now it floats longer letting in more water. 25%percent more in my case.

The water keeps running. the yellow whatever you call it attached to the flapper get caught under the flapper


What is getting caught unger the flapper?
If your referring the chain that pulls the flapper up when you engage the level, that can be easy fixed by shortening/removing the links from the chain.
You can also remove the flapper and clean the hard water residue so it can create a proper seal.
Once your finished you can perform a test to ensure no more water is making it through when the flapper is sealed.
Flush the toilet, watch for the flapper to close. Once closed drop a couple drops of blue food coloring into the tank and /sigh.... Wait to see if you see it coming out into the toilet bowl. Check back in a half an hour. If no blue... Good job.
Hope this helps.

Just installed the cadet 3 and here is what is happening. First let me say that the toilet it replaced was working good. The water filled very slow and the bowl would not fill much. I messed with the...


The amount of water in any toilet bowl is determined by its construction and no tank adjustment will ever change that. American Standard has a history of having small water surface areas in their low or ultra low flush toilets. Take a large container of water and pour directly into the bowl. If the ending level remains the same, then that is the manufactured level for your toilet.

Not all tanks completely discharge all of the water when flushed. Measure 1.5 gallons of water into a container. Turn off your water supply to the toilet then flush normally. Replace the water in the tank with your premeasured amount and observe this new water level. You might be surprised to find it is at the same level it always is. Since water weighs more than 8 pounds per gallon, one concept used in todays toilets is to have more than 1.5 gallons of water in the tank and use the extra weight push the water past the flapper at a faster rate while designing the flapper to drop after only 1.5 gallons have passed through.

Water is leaking out , close water off then water in tank goes empty. when water on you can hear water runing in tank


Your flush valve (flapper) is leaking. Some of these rubber flappers snap on to posts. Others, slide down the overflow tube. Others are the plunger type that lift straight up and down (some of these have a gasket on the bottom that go bad.) In any case be sure flapper closes properly. Make sure the chain to the handle isn't so long as to get between valve and seat holding flapper open. If all else fails buy a fluidmasgter flush fixer repair kit and follow directions. I had a similar problem one winter and wasted about 200.00 on water.,

The flush valve does stay open long enough after flushing


Which style of flush valve do you have? If it is the dual-flush option (solids/liquids) I do not know how to adjust those. If you have a traditional style, then the flapper or ball is closing too soon. You need to adjust the guide arm (flush ball) higher or shorten the chain between the flapper and the handle. Adjust this carefully or you will have it fail to seat and the toilet will constantly run.

I hope this helps.

Kohler two peice toilet the water just circles and will not flush.there is plenty of water in holding tank that run through


These models need to have a flush valve flapper that has a styrofoam float on the lift chaninof the flapper. Go to hardware store or home improvement store and get a 'Korky brand toilet tank flapper with float 'ball". Cut the rubber ring piece away from the flapper and you don't need it (see cut here marks on flapper). Install flapper and adjust the float fairly close to the flapper.
When the water level drops in the tank and reaches the level of the float on the opne flapper, the flapper quickly closes causing the toilet to have a "surge" of siphon action which forces the water in the bowl to be drawn out.
