Question about Thetford Porta Potti

1 Answer

We have a new step style Thetford toilet in a brand new Rockwood trailer. When we apply gentle pressure to fill the main bowl water leaks over the small bowl at the back of the toilet and onto the floor. It appears the small bowl at the back may be missing a cover. As a temp fix I was considering covering with duct tape, but not sure how this would affect the function. Got any answers?

Sounds like the vacuum breaker is leaking. By small bowl at the top you mean the part that sticks up above the back of the toilet? If so, that is the vacuum breaker.

Ive replaced 3 toilet fill valve with 440a Fluid master fill valves height is good water level good.After a while it sounds like there is leak by from all toilet.Flappers have been replaced. What coul


check the overflow pipe in the cistern tank as some fill valves do not stop completely but allow input of water after the noise has stopped. This allows the water level to rise up and the water to flow out into the toilet bowl. Reduce the water level height by adjusting the cut off level and when the water rises past the new level the increase pressure on the valve will shut it off.

I have a 4.8 lt flush vitra toilet when i flush hardly any water goes in the bowal to clean the sides of paper


These new style toilets are this way by design. It is designed to use less water, thus helping the. Ecology and your water bill. In effect what is happening is that the trap is lower in the bowl , thus not letting the level of water be as high in the bowl. Now matter if you pour a gallon of water to try to fill it up, it will run out until it reaches that level in the bowl.

Hi cssweet12...
Look for a switch (inside cabinet,inside storage area, etc.) to turn the water pressure on from the pressure pump built into the camper..it will fill you toilet bowl with water one you have the system pressurized.
Trace your water line to locate your pump.

Water is leaking slowing after filling up the tank and water supply is shut off. where is the leak?


In this toilet there is a flapper valve that blocks the hole for the water to transfer from the tank to thebowl. If you fill the tank and water is leaking into the bowl put your hand in the tank and apply alittle pressure to the flapper, the leak should stop. You can buy replacement parts for this toilet at Home depot or Lowes they carry universal lits that are perfect for this issue.

When the tank is full and leaking into the bowl reach in and put slight pressure on the flapper and if the leak stops then you may have the wrong flapper or the flapper is not installed properly. If that is not the case then make sure the flush valve seat is not cracked or that the surface is not warped.

Thetford says that the vacuum breaker is usually at fault. I have the same problem. Try changing the vacuum breaker first (it is easier than the water valve).

Toilet will not flush


It sound like you have debris caught in the fill valve. Remove the top where the washer is and put your hand over it and slowly turn the water on to flush the fill valve. Replace the washer with a new one and then replace the top.

If you have the old ball and **** style, replaceing the diaphram is harder so I would recommend replacing it with a fluidmaster fill valve. Hope this helps.
