Question about Plumbing

1 Answer

I HAVE A GEBERIT TOILET, WHERE THE CISTERN IS BEHIND A TILED WALL. WHAT IS HAPPENING IS THAT THERE IS A CONSTANT SMALL TRICKLE OF WATER INTO THE BOWL, AND EVERY 15 SECONDS OR SO THE FLOAT DROPS AND FILLS THE CISTERN AGAIN, AND AGAIN AND AGAIN AT 15 SECOND INTERVALS, ONLY FOR ABOUT 5-8 SECONDS OF FLOW. THIS IS QUITE ANNOYING AND A WASTE OF WATER. I CAN ACCESS THE INTERNAL PARTS BUT CANNOT ACCESS THE BOTTOM OF THE CISTERN.... CAN YOU HELP PLEASE?

Hi,
I would buy one of these... you can replace the flapper from the top with out having to access the bottom...
This is that part that is letting the water through...
These are available at most any local hardware or big box store...

I have a leak coming through my ceiling from the ensuite toilet above. It is an ideal standard wall hung with concealed cistern behind tiles. There is no obvious access panel. The tiled wall is flush.


The flush control panel normally comes off. You can then hopefully see inside. You won't be able to see much though as the cistern will be in the way...

Places to look for leaks are:
Soil pipe to pan
Cistern to flush pipe
Flush pipe to pan
Cistern overflow.

Tip

FIXING A TOILET THAT WILL NOT FLUSH!!! a simple but very effective money saving...


This simple how to, is based upon most lever operated toilets, with the cistern mounted above the toilet bowl. The make and model of toilet used for this feature is of the following:
Toilet and internal syphon
DUDLEY ELITEDudley S7 Cascade syphon
Problem:
My toilet will not flush, but the ball float valve is working and there is water in the cistern; no leaks present and the flushing lever is not broken or disconnected, what do I do?
Answer:
first isolate the water to the toilet or the main water supply to the house. Bail out the water from the cistern using a small jug or cup, (or you can syphon the water manually using a hosepipe or similar pipe, a towel to cover your mouth, and either a bucket or the toilet bowl) and remove water from the bottom of the cistern with a sponge.


Changing the syphon in a toilet that is not close coupled is far easier as you do not need to remove the cistern from the wall!


Undo the lower of the two large nuts beneath the cistern using a large pipe wrench or pair of water pump pliers, now disconnect the flush pipe and push it to one side.
Place a bucket or bowl beneath the cistern and undo the Nut which is immediately below the cistern (syphon replacing nut), some water may be released by the syphon, take note of any washers that are removed as new ones need fitting when replacing the siphon.
Unhook the lift rod from the flushing lever and remove the syphon.


Inside the toilet syphon, there will be a small plastic piece of sheet called a diaphragm; you can fabricate a replacement using the plastic title cover on a DVD case. Cut this to the exact same size and shape as the original part, and fit this to where the original diaphragm was. This is your new replacement.


Refitting is a complete reversal of removal, be sure to fit any washers (preferably new ones) that you have taken out. Ensure everything is tight but do not over tighten before refilling the cistern

Toilet pumps when not in use


sounds as though there may be a trickle of water going in to the pan from the cistern. To check you could turn OFF the water to the cistern, or tie the float arm up. then flsu the water in the cistern so that no more water will trickle in to the loo. Leave it a goodly time, several hours say, and monitor if it still runs for a few mins every hour. Actually running for two/three mins is rather a long time but first i would think you need to eliminate the possibility of the above steady trickle from the cistern.

How do you adjust the fill level for a geberit fors inlet valve


A "Geberit FORS Inlet Valve" is not a dishwasher part. It is a fill valve made for a toilet cistern. You adjust it by removing the valve, removing the blue "locking clip" on the lower part of the valve body, then rotating the valve body to make it longer/shorter (and hence raise/lower the height of the large float body on the side of the valve). Once done, reinsert the lock clip, and reinstall the valve in the toilet tank. You can see how to adjust it at this link

My toilet cistern is continually hissing


Hi I have exactly the same problem, in fact it could have been me writing this - 3 toliets fine, main bathroom hisses. The Geberit flushing ciphen on the left (the smaller one) has been replaced and there is still a problem. If you look carefully,the water level needs to come up over the lip of an opening on the Geberit part and this causes the valve mechanism to shut off and stop the hissing. It is fine for about 40 minutes and then the hissing starts again if you don't flush it. The reason is that the water level has gone down but there is no obvious signs of where the water is going. It could be that the central flush mechanism is leaking slightly. I am going to replace this part next. If I were you I'd see if you are getting any water leakage into the pan when toilet not in use to see if the water level in the cistern is going down James T

Unable to fit a toilet seat


Hi neenyc02.

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: The cistern to your toilet is behind a wall. and you can't fit a new seat

I'm having trouble visuallising your problem. For the average toilet there are only two sizes, round front and elongated. Compost and other special types are usually made to accept one or the other. If we're talking about a small marine tupe or such it would still install very much the same way. If you could upload some clear pictures of your problem it would help a great deal. In any case you will need access to the bolt holes (top & bottom).

Feel free contact me again!
