There is a "running water" sound at intermittent times of the day and night. The sound comes from the tank. Am I wasting water? The toilet flushes ok.

Yes, the bottom valve leaks. You will need to replace the mechanism - replacing the rubber gasket of the valve is rarely enough.

Slow fill of tank after flush


Why do say a lot of waste? Is not the water going into the tank. Is the water slow coming into the tank? Sounds like the valve letting the water in is blocked with sediment thus keeping the water from coming in. You may just need a new float assembly

Dirty Water & gurggling & spitting sounds coming from toilets


I assume that the toilet flushes and refills with clean water? Check the vent- for debris or critters. If nothing is apparent, stick a hose in it and run water down the vent.

What do I do to stop water from leaking from the tank, it refills itself several times, day or night? The toilet looks like a Sedona, although the shape of the tank differs a bit, the width is the same,...


Sounds like something in the floating device is bad so it doesn't shut off when filled. We just replaced our flush valve on ours because the toilet keep running.

We have a san raphael one piece toilet, and it sounds like the water is running at intervals. Sounds like there is problem with water level. What can I do to correct this problem? John


Sounds like the flapper is leaking water out of the tank. The flapper is the rubber valve that comes up and down every time you pull the flush lever. It is located in the tank at the bottom in the center. Very cheap part to replace.. Just turn the water off to the stool, take the top of the tank off, hold the flush lever down until all the water is out of the tank, reach in to the tank, disconnect the flush chain from the flapper, and disconnect the flapper arms holding to the stem. You can buy a flapper at any hardware store even at wal mart. Hope this helps.

My jacuzzi toilet doesnt fill with enought water in the bowl to remove waste from porcilin when flushing


Hi, W/D here.
Check the water level in the tank. The force to flush waste comes from there. Normally the fill line is cast into the back of the tank, but sometimes it is on the overflow tube. Raise the level if it is low.
Also, make sure that the tubing from the fill valve is connected to the over flow tube (the tall tube).
Best regards, --W/D--

Is is possible to make a full flush toilet from an American Standard Cadet 3. The toilet is on a septic system and does not have the power to move waste all the way to the septic tank.


If your toilet is not moving waste all the way to the septic, then there may be a blockage in the waste line or it may not be plumbed correctly. There is no reason why you should not be able to make a full flush on septic. I have live on septic for many years and it should flush as well as living in the city. Is your water supply nice and strong? This sound like a gravity issue with the waste line or a blockage, If you can get under your house and see how the waste line is run, that would be helpful, it should be aimed straight down underneath your toilet and never running uphill at any point on the way to the septic tank. Also is there a vent in the waste line at the proper distance. If not, that could also be the issue. Good luck. P.s. does your septic tank need pumped out?

Just hooked up new pressure asist tank & bowl,turned on water to it,and it want flush.what i mean about want flush, is it will flush but water does'nt go down,as if it's not staying open long enough.


Sounds like you have a clogged drainline or vent-stack. Fill a large bucket with about three gallons of water and dump it quickly into the bowl. If the drainline/vent is clear, the toilet will "flush" like a gravity toilet and the water will drain from the bowl almost as fast as you can pour it in.

If the water level in the bowl slowly rises (as if it's about to overflow) and then slowly drains, you have a clog somewhere.

All toilets, regardless of their flushing mechanism, require a clear, unoibstructed drain/waste/vent system to extract waste.

If the toilet "flushes" with the bucket of water, you may want to call Flushmate tech support (the number is on top of the tank) or check out the installation and troubleshooting videos at howto.flushmate.com.

Hope this helps.

Toilet fill runs periodically works well but wastes water


Sounds like your flapper is leaking causing the water in the tank to lower until it triggers the fill valve. Replace the flapper (they're cheap and wear out easily).

Ghost flush on toilet bowl


Lift the cover on the toilet tank. If the water is too high, it is running into the overflow tube. You will have to adjust the float lower to stop the water at a lower level. If there is no water in the tank, the ball **** is faulty and needs to be fixed or replaced.

Have to flush 2 or 3 times to empty toilet bowl


hello, this is a standard toilet you will need to inspect the flapper that is the rubber flap that holds the water up in the tank it works when you pull the lever it pulls the chain upward and lets the water flow if this flapper is old it may not stay up long enough for the water to flow. open the tank top and flush the toilet see if this flapper is staying up long enough and giving the tank enough time to empty if not change this rubber flapper its inexpensive part.
if this is not the reason then you need to adjust your water filler valve there should be a small screw on top of the pivoting float arm
if you have to adjust it for the water limit line inside the tank this will be the proper amount of water needed to flush once completely

also check that the chain lenth on the pull lever is not pulling the flapper down quicker than its supposed to,

try this let me know your results
hope it helps
