Make sure the chain to the flapper is loose when the flapper is down and that the handle when it goes through the toilet is free moving.

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.

American standard caded 3 leaking water from tank into toilet and occasionally running every 5 minutes. is this a flapper problem (it seems well seated) or could it be leaking elswhere?


It could be a bad seat around the flapper or the flapper itself. Replace flapper with one designed for the Cadet. Check water level and see it doesn't flow above the overflow tube. if it is above the tube lower the float ball by turning the screw at top of ball.

I have a new American Standard Cadet 3 that was just installed. After flushing, the water fills into the bowl. However, after several minutes, the water in the bowl slowly drains away and is nearly gone....


Sorry for problem with new toilet.
You say water is leaking out of the bowl?

Toilets have 2 parts:
1) Tank: where water is stored for the flush and is sealed with a flapper.
2) Bowl: where water flushes down.

a) If tank is leaking water, then flapper is suspect. Replace flapper and see if that works.
Lift up flapper and run finger around rim to see if there is a rough spot that would indicate flush valve is defective, and needs replacement.
See typical flush valve

b) If bowl is leaking, that is very unusual and would indicate a crack in the porcelain.

If installer sold you the toilet, it is his responsibility to make good on product.
All products are guarantee against workmanship flaws.

The toilet has been leaking slowly and it's trying to fill us every few mins, seems like the flapper or the seal is leaking. How do I know which one?


hold the flapper down and see if it stops leaking but it is almost positively the flapper. turn the water off, remove the old flapper, adjust the chain on the new flapper to the length of the old flapper, wipe the port area where the flapper seals to remove residue, install new flapper.

Our bowl seems to fill by itself, even when the black float has stopped coming up in the tank. We have an Elger one piece oblonged tank/bowl.


need to replace the "flapper"
an easy way to check to see if is leaking is to put a little red food coloring into the tank just above the flapper, wait a couple of minutes and if the red is showing in the bowl, the flapper is leaking.

if the flapper is not leaking...
there should be a small tube that is located in the top of the overflow. pull that off and see if water is coming out, if it is, then your fill valve is leaking and needs to be replaced.

Pump cycles often


The following are the possible problems and solutions:
  1. The tank flapper (Flush Valve) leaking allowing water into bowl. Make sure flapper is fully seated. If flapper is fully seated and still is leaking replace flapper.
  2. Faulty Non-Return Check Valve, water leaking back into Macerator. Clean and Inspect check valve replace if after clean water still flows back into Macerator.
I hope this answers your question and gives you a few more places to look. Please rate the answer on it's helpfulness. Good Luck and have a great day. Jeff

Pump wont stop


The following are the possible problems and solutions:
  1. The tank flapper (Flush Valve) leaking allowing water into bowl. Make sure flapper is fully seated. If flapper is fully seated and still is leaking replace flapper.
  2. Faulty Non-Return Check Valve, water leaking back into Macerator. Clean and Inspect check valve replace if after clean water still flows back into Macerator.
  3. Check micro switch, the micro switch turns on pump when the water level reaches to a determined level. Location of switch is in the pressure chamber. Check to see if switch is sticking. Note: For safety Macerator should never be operated with lid open

After flushing a newly installed toilet, the water will not remain in the toilet bowl but no leaks are present


this sounds like a leaking flapper.although you may not see a leak, this is always the problem.a leaking flapper can be replaced,just becauce the toilet is new does not mean that it may not have defective parts.i would check the flapper first then the fill valve.this will most likely fix your problem.good luck with your project.
