SOURCE: Flapper valve

You will need to adjust the chain. They are just clipped at any point when coming from the factory not at the opyimal length. It will take a little effort to find the desired length as sometimes the trick to getting the valve to remain open longer is opposite of what one would expect. I mean there is a point to where there will be more slack in the line than you might expect to get the valve to stay open for the optimal duration.
Hope this helps you.

SOURCE: Toto Toilet - no water flow to refill tank after flush

Remove the tank lid and look at the fill valve. Is it a yellow valve?
This fill valve is common on the Toto Toilets and can easliy plug with debrie.

They can be disassmbled and cleaned. however, I usually just replace the valve with Fluid Master Fill valve.
You will also want to check the water coming into the toilet by turning off the water that supplies the toilet and disconnecting the water supply line. After removing the water supply line turn on the water at the valve to make sure that the water is flowing properly. Check the supply line also to make sure it is not plugged.
Be sure and place a small container to catch the water that will come from the valve. A towell will also help from making too much of a mess.
If the Supply line and the valve are clear the problem is in the fill valve.
The G-Max system denotes the Flushiing system which is a 3" flapper that allows the water from the tank to flow into the bowl quicker.
Good Toilets!

SOURCE: Water comes from bottom of tank when commode is

You need a new tank gasket. It is a rubber piece that seals between the tank and the bowl. They are fairly inexpensive and if you have patience and a little plumbing know-how; they can be changed at home. Here is a good on-line set of instructions:

SOURCE: Water comes from bottom of tank when commode is

Ok the toilets work is that the tank reservoir is where your fresh water....is stored....and the flush valve...(if you take the tank lid off you will see that the handle is either connected to a chain or uses a lever to lift something called a flapper....it is usually black but it can be gray..or blue...also there is a flash valve that is a long tube and a round bottom with a rubber gasket...that seals the flush water into the tank...reventing it from entering the bowl.......when you lift the handle water dumps from the tank...into a s-shape tunnel called a trap...(this is in place to prevent sewer gases from entering the house the water sits in the bottom of the trap acting as a seal against smells...gas...etc...from the sewer line....Now your tank is mounted to the bowl by (2 or 3) bolts that you can see and access from inside the tank...however the person doing this will have to also reach under the toilet where the tank mounts to the bowl and hold a pair of pliers or a crescent wrench on the nuts which hold the tank in place.....after these are removed...the tank will lift off of the bowl.(now obviously the water has to be shut off and be disconnected from the tank....when the tank is lifted ...a small amount of water may spill out ...but it is clean water...so no worries....since the tank and the bowl are made of porcelain they obviously would not seal just sitting on top of each other so the tank...has the bottom part of the flush assembly which is mounted to the tank by way of a large plastic nut extends out of the bottom opf the tank 2-3 inches......around this is another black or gray about 3-5 inches in diameter...and costs less than $5 at Home Depot.....change this out, reassemble and your back in business. Be advised that the flapper in the bottom of the tank...if you ever have to change it out and the tank gasket you are going to change out (after a long period of use or just time and deterioration)...leave black residue on your hands...if you handle them...but it is safe and easily washed off...it just may freak.. a layperson out....so one may want to use some gloves they can toss afterwards....Any other questions....and I can absolutely answer them in regards to toilets...as i have repaired and or replaced 2500 - 3000 in my 35 years in the apt/home maintenance industry.

I hope this helps.....thank you for rating my effort...and good luck....tha Fang.

How to flush a radiator in a 1998 ford expedition


Depends whether a problem is suspected or whether the radiator is definitely the cause of the trouble.

Flushing a radiator requires it to be no worse than moderately blocked because without reasonable water flow flushing is doomed to failure and even then it is nearly impossible to clean the interior of a radiator without taking it apart and rodding out the tubes or using either an acidic or a caustic additive.

Flushing the old coolant out and a small percentage of sludge is as much as can be accomplished unless an additive is used and even then with variable success. I do this by disconnecting the heater outlet hose and fitting the (turned on) garden hose to it and then running the engine until the water runs clear. Once this is done I transfer the garden hose to the top of the radiator (top hose disconnected and plugged) and also plug the disconnected heater hose. Start the engine and run until the water runs clear from the heater outlet.

A more thorough cleaning will require the radiator to be removed and laid flat on the floor. This is definitely a kill or cure process but no less risky than using a caustic additive.. The results are usually quite impressive but beware - you and anyone nearby is likely to get wet.

I have the poor-man's pressure washer, officially entitled a water-air gun, but as long as the radiator is filled with water and water is running through it and the inlet is sealed apart from the water-air gun or other arrangement that allows compressed air to be introduced into the filled radiator while water continues to flow will have the desired effect. I kneel on the radiator to keep it stable and sometimes I feel it grow under me when I give it the full air tank pressure.

If it breaks, the reason is it wasn't much good in the first place...

Misbehaving toilet


The included link should provide some help in determining your specific design. Depending on your specific design the flapper is a critical component in controlling the amount of water released from the tank during flush.

The appearance of water flushing is in fact created by the siphon action of the water falling down through the drain pipe.

Any restriction in the down stream drain flow can give the appearance of a bad flush. So the problem may not be flush, but a restriction in the drain pipe, or trap-way or outlet.

Using a bucket filled with water pour water quickly into bowl and observe the flush action. Compare the action with another toilet using the bucket. If the flush appears adequate and the water from the tank flows slowly check for salt buildup at the nozzle end of the outlet from the tank into the bowl.

In the design below there is a transfer tube that injects air into the trap. This provides a vacuum to promote the siphon during flush. A leak or failed seal in this transfer tube would result in poor flush.

If drains are slow, particularly if you hear a "gurgling" sound at fixtures during draining, I'd suspect that the building vent system is blocked restricted. A restricted drain is much more likely than a restricted vent. Small children are likely to have placed non biodegradable toys etc into the toilet and they may have gotten trapped. Build up in the vent pipe is also common.
In this example ice is blocking the vent!

Water flow does not stop


you probably have a bad flapper valve. The flapper valve sits in the bottom of the tank and allows the water to flow into the bowl when you flush. Turn off water supply to the commode and remove the tank lid. Feel the flapper valve, ensuring it is seated fully on the opening and is not damaged. If any rubber comes off on your hand or it feels slimy then you need to replace it. Remove flapper and take it to your local hardware store to match up with what they have on the shelf - you may need to cut some parts off of the replacement valve as they are designed to fit several different commodes. It is also possible that your float is stuck and you may need to replace the float and fill assembly - if this is so, the new assembly will come with detailed instructions to replace.
Hope this helps!!

After flushing, the water continues to run and does not stop.


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.

When I flush my mascerating toilet, the tank behind the toilet floods over. How do I fix this?


I assume you are referring to the holding tank and not the pump case.
The bowl float system on the couple SaniPlus toilets I have seen are similar to standard toilets. This will be a plastic float that slides up and down the water inlet tube. It will be attached to a shut off lever at the top of the tube by a metal rod. The float and rod are attached to each other by a "V" shaped clip. To adjust the shut off level you need to slide this clip up/down the rod.
If you remove the top of the tank and flush you should be able to see this working when flushing. Try shutting off the water flow by moving the shut off lever by hand. Use the water shut off at the inlet line leading into the tank to start and stop the water before it over flows if the lever does not work.
If the lever does not stop the flow then you have a problem with the water inlet mechanism and it may need to be replaced.
If your inlet mechanism is different from what I described please respond back with the model number of your SaniPlus.
Hope this helps.

Toto toilet: refill valve opens and closes rapidly


I believe you have a high water pressure going to the
tank. Minimize the water volume going to your tank. This is done by fully closing the inlet valve under the tank. Then open about 1/4 to 1/3 of the inlet valve. To do this, count the number of turns to get it full close from full open position. For 1/4, divide the number of turns by 4 and divide it by 3, for 1/3 open. Hope this will solve your problem.

After the tank fills water contiues to flow thru


The fill valve needs replacement unless you can take the top off snd find out what is keeping it from closing. I had one I took apart for the same reason and found a piece of plastic in the valve seat. Good Luck, Ned
