Toilet upstairs sometimes drains when the one downstairs is flushed.


It could be a blocked vent.when the downstairs toilet flushes it draws air down the drain with the wastewater. The vent is suppose to supply air to make up for this. If the vent is blocked or there is no vent. Air is drawn from the easiest place ,in this case through the upstairs toilet,drawing the water out of the toilet trap with it. In northern climates the vents sometimes frost shut causing the problem you describe. Hope this helps.

Water ridge toilet manual


Thus if the tank is continuing to drain down through the bowl into the sewer line, the rubber flapper is not seating properly with the flush. These become worn and torn and are easily replaced. Or, even with a new one installed, sometimes they are not adjusted properly to create the appropriate balance between play and pull. Play being the upward connection to the flush handle and pull being the downward draw with the gravity flow of the water. Too much play it won't actually flush or lift properly. Too much pull it does not seat tightly or won't lift up long enough to allow enough water to flow through to flush the toilet...as engineered by the geniuses who designed the toilet. A simple adjustment of the chain links attaching the flapper to the flush handle and perhaps a side to side turn of the cuff so the flapper is aligned to seat properly as it drops should be sufficient. And test, test, test, test, and test again until you're absolutely sure you've got it adjusted correctly. One or two flushes is not sufficient!

My kohler persuade toilet won't fill up


Kenny, the gurgling sound is coming from a stoppage in the air vent located above the toilet on the roof. It has to be open to allow proper drawing of air to pull the contents from the toilet. You also have something lodged in the trap as the water goes out. If a snake doesn't clean it out, then you probably will need to take the toilet up and clean from the bottom side. You can a hose with a sprayer and bllast out from the bottom and most of the time that will free up the blockage.

Water going straight through system this unit is new and has never been used was installed approx 5 years ago in a motor home, Where can we get an Manual for TMC 99907 12V Electric Marine Toilet Luxury...


Um, isn't that what it should be doing? Try putting some mellow yellow in the bowl & see if that goes through too. After that, try some more solid deposits.

The toilet appears to draw water by a small amount of vacuum through the 3/4 inch hose from the fresh water tank & distributes it around the inside of the bowl, The supply line for fresh water should include a quality non-return valve. You do not want back-flow into your fresh water tank!

Waste is expelled via the 1 inch hose into (hopefully) a black tank.

There does not appear to be a user manual for this product.

Five year old Toto toilet has developed a very slow flush in the past few weeks. Plumber has found no clog in line and water from hose flows freely with no back up. We have two other similar Toto toilets...


This can happen if there is a hole (physical damage) inside the trap. Instead of the weight of the water during a flush causing it to drain right down suddenly and completely, it draws in air and loses the momentum. There could be a hole or a crack, which may be hard to find without removing the unit.

How much draw down (tightening) do use to attach the water tank to the toilet bowl on a American Standard Flowise Cadet 3 toilet? Does the tank need to meet the bowl?


Seat the tank well on a new wax ring and then tightnen the two bolts on the sides evenly there is a small amount of pressure but thats it. To much and you'll snap the side of the bowl. You can caulk around the edge if you want more security,less movement.

The tension on the nuts is very tricky just a feel kinda thing.

Be carefull not to over do it.
