My toilets do not want to flush after a day or two. The plunger sticks and I'm afraid the flush handle is going to break. They are only four years old and our water is better than average. Advice?

Toilet handle sticks


It sounds like the nylon nut which holds the handle in place is too tight. Try loosening that nylon nut just a little to see if the handle moves easier. Sometimes if they are over-tightened, the handle will be stiff and hard to operate.

Why does my toilet belch water after flushing


Always the first thing with bad toilets. Take a big plunger and pump hard covering the entire bottom of the bowl. Blockages cause air breaks which cause the belching

Wand will not launch when seat is activated


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

f the toilet bowl overflows, use a plunger or auger to eliminate clogs. If the toilet does not flush, tighten or replace the defective handle , adjust or replace the lift chain , or replace the flush mechanism . Jiggling the handle forces the lift chain or rod to re-seat the flush mechanism, telling you that something is awry.

If the bowl drains sluggishly, remove the clog with a plunger or auger, or raise the water level in the tank .

If water runs continuously through the toilet, lower the water level in the tank , adjust or replace a lift chain or wire , repair or replace a worn flush valve , clean or replace the valve seat assembly .

If water appears under the tank, tighten the tank hold-down bolts , lower the water level in the tank, replace the float valve , replace a malfunctioning ball or tighten nuts on the water supply line, replace leaking supply line . As a last resort, re-seat the toilet .

If the seat is cracked or unsightly, replace it .

If the bowl or tank is cracked or otherwise unacceptable, replace the entire toilet .

American standard toilet doesnt always flush, water swirls around


There is a clog in the line. A plunger usually solves this problem, but you have to use a toilet plunger. Your local hardware store will give you the right tool ($13). If the plunger doesn't work, you need a toilet auger (also called a closet auger), which you can buy for less than $20.

Cant find any thing in bowl ,replaced air tank drain is clear and still does not flush replaced bowl and flushes this is the 4th toilet with same problem cant find anything in any bowl we changed


Try turning off the water to the toilet, then old the handle down until you hear that all the
water has drained out of the tank. Then turn the water back on. Then take a cup of water
and put water on to the plunger on top of the tank. Check for air bubbles, if there are bubbles
then that is the problem. The tank MUST HAVE a certain amount of air in the top of the tank,
or it will not work at all. You might have to remove the plunger assembly and put some vaseline on the big O ring seals. To remove the plunger, take the screws off the stainless bent rod that goes
over the plunger, then remove the rod, or just move it out of the way. The plunger can be removed
by sticking the jaws of a pair of chanel lock "pump pliers", then grab the handles of the channel locks and turn the plunger assembly out.

Sometimes all you need to do is drain the tank down, and the toilet might work for a long time.
It's such an easy fix, a person really doesn't mind draining the tank.

Hope this helps

Toto toilet ultra max flush


Open the tank and examine the linkages between the handle and the flapper. If the handle is sticking, it sounds like there may be either mineral buildup or a stuck chain.
