Question about Toto Carlyle 1-piece Elongated Bowl Toilet

1 Answer

I have a Carlyle water saver toilet. The one that has two push buttons built into the toilet tank lid. It is a solid 1 piece toilet. My problem is every hour the toilet is flushing by itself. Had a plumber over and he can't find the problem because he can't "hear a leak". It is not going into the bowl except when it flushes every hr. The water level gradually over the hours drops close to 3" then the tank fills back up. So please tell me where is the water going and how can my "plumber fix this". I have shut this toilet off, I need to fix I live in a desert and wasting water is not an option.

Hello. Your lid has two buttons so you can do a half flush or a full flush. A water saving feature. Since the toilet is flushing by itself every hour or so, you must have a leaking flush valve. Replace the valve to solve that problem. Joe

Refill tube constantly detaches from fill valve

A longer piece of tubing may solve the problem. Put the extra down the overflow tube so it won't pop out. Hope this helps.

The toilet makes a pulsating sound after flushing

If this noise your hearing is water related and I talking inlet water filling the tank then the ballcock needs rebuilt or replaced.

The toilet does'nt have the same flush pull taking a couple of flushes very slow draining

Check the following: Is the water level in the tank properly set? Is the flapper valve opening fully when flushed? And is there any blockage in the waste line? Use a plunger to try and clear the line if the first two items are OK.

My Toto Carlyle toilet with Gmax valve CONSTANTLY runs...It runs for about 3 mins, stops, then runs for 3 mins, stops, and on and on this goes!!!! I need step by step instructions on how to fix the...

Sounds like your losing water out of the tank. check to see if flapper in tank has good seal (The rubber device that fits over the whole at bottom of tank, its attached to the handle by a chain or plastic rod). Make a mark when the water shuts off to reflect the water level watch the level of water over the time you specified. If the waterline drops the you definitely have a faulty flapper. Replace with new flapper which can be purchased at most hardware stores and DIY stores like Lowe's, Menard's, Home Depote. I hope this has answered your question, please rate the answer given. Good Luck and have a great day. Jeff

Tank doesn't refill

The float on the ballcock is either hung up,the round black thing that should slide up and down, or the valve is stuck. Either way, the most reliable fix is to replace it. Can get one at a hardware store usually for about $20-30 US.

After flushing, water does not refill the tank.

yeah sounds as though the ball valve or water inlet valve is stuck in the closed position or jammed so when you flush the loo the water doesnt refill.
Isolate water service remove valve as required clean/replace re instate test & leave working
