SOURCE: When cistern fills with water it leaks into the

Hi,

This is caused by the 'syphon' mechanism sticking, quite often nowadays the 'brilliant' plastic push button/ syphon combo sticks, and most toilets are fitted with an internal overflow, lift the lid on the cistern and check for anything causing an obstruction.

More often than not, it's a tiny bit of scale that causes such a headache, and the fact that nothing is made with any quality nowadays!

If you can't see what's wrong call a plumber, he/she will solve it.

I hope this helps

Steve

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

Caroma toilet 12years old, concealed cistern. Water leaking around base when toilet is flushed. water level maintained when not flushing, so the leak must be between the cistern and the bowl. Had a plumber...


Fixing a leaky toilet is actually rather simple, requiring few tools and just a little time and effort. In looking at Caroma toilets on Google, they appear to be just a standard type of unit, and should present few if any problems for yourself or any handyman of modest skill.

If it is leaking around the base of the toilet - where the toilet sits on the floor, the repair item is a simple wax seal. Here is a tutorial to effect this repair: Replace Toilet Wax Ring. The wax ring is very inexpensive, usually $5 to $10 USD.

If the water is leaking from between the tank (cistern) and the toilet bowl, the job is even easier, as it does not require lifting and moving the entire toilet. A good tutorial for that repair is here: How to Replace Tank to Bowl Gasket . The gaskets, new nuts, bolts and rubber seals come in a kit and also cost only $5 to $10 USD.

I am sorry to hear your Plumber insisted you buy an entire new toilet, but do remember he is in the business of making money!

Water level too high in Gruppo Italia in-wall cistern


check if mechanism that releases water when you flush is tight so no water escapes.
As for water level, you can adjust to less in the tank.

I have a leak around outside of the bowl which I suspect is due to a leak between the cistern and bowl/pan connection but can't figure out how to remove the cistern from the pan? There don't appear to be...


you should have two bolts going through the tank connecting the tank to the bowl , inbetween those bolts is the pipe that the water flows through from your tank to your bowl , this pipe has a gasket on it. if the bolts are loose on the tank it will cause that gasket to leak, you have to take the bolts off and get a new tank to bowl gasket, any plumbing supply place should have some for you , you will want to get new tank to bowl bolts ang gaskets for that aswell or you will have problems with those leaking too when you put it all back together!

Problem overflow valve


Firstly open the top of the Cistern(Where water is held)There are two most common Cistern internals ie;Ball-O-Stop(Ball on a arm connecting to valve). This one is easy, you just bend the arm downwards in the centre so that the ball shuts the valve at a lower level; The other type has a shaft(plastic) with a thread on it, connecting it to a "small bowl" that lifts up as water enters the cistern. To adjust the water level in cistern you have to turn the thread(Shaft) lowering the "small bowl" wich will shut the inlet to the cistern at a lower level. Hope this helps
