Most likely the problem is with the fill valve or ballcock. Will need to turn the water off to the toilet and remove the supply line that connects the water to the fill valve. then there is a nut that holds the fill valve to the bottom of the toilet tank. remove that nut and the fill valve will lift out of the tank. replace the fill valve with a reverse process and that should cure the problem.

How do I clean my radiator rust?


engine flush clean out the old water and flush it a few times to clean out the antifreeze and the system flush to the engine and top up system, leave the cap off and run the engine to operating temp. squeezing out he air so the flush can get everywhere in the system top up with more water as it goes down. . when the fan kicks in turn off the engine and leave to cool about an hour or so this gives the cleaner time to work. can leave overnight if you want to and it will lift the rust particles out, drain the water out, and flush it a few times out with clean water. if you want to give it a really good clean out remove the radiator pipes and back flush the radiator, and to the same to the heater pipes the same way and on the line to where the heater gets its feed flush out on that pipe and this will clean out the parts that could not be cleared.. when complete refit everything add your antifreeze, when the pipes are all back on and the drain tap is closed. fill up with water and run engine to temp squeezing the pipes to help get the air out, with the cap off, keep topping up so it dont get to low, when fan comes on turn off engine and leave to cool down as long as there is no bubbles coming up in the water filler expansion tank. leave to cool and either top up or remove water so it's on the fill line, then put the cap back on and its done.

What would cause no water circulation on a 70h 2 Stroke Nissan outboard. I just changed the water pump. Can get a little too dribble out but that's it


Hi Kenneth do you use the engine in fresh or sea water? it sounds like you have a build up in the water ways, take the impeller out of the water pump and try flushing the bottom casing through with water either from a hose or pressure washer back flushing the waterways ( from coolant passage to the inlet) then from the outlet up at the top end and flush through the engine to try and clear any debri out and if that doesn't help you can get a flush that mixes with water to clean scale build up
Hope this help you

To short of flush


Take the top off the tank and look at the water height. Adjust the float valve to raise the water to the line on the back of the tank. There is usually a little screw.

If the tank is already high, try holding the flush lever down. Newer tanks are dual flush, which a short flush with a quick press and release (for having a wee), and a long flush holding the handle down for ... well you get the picture :>)

After flushing the toilet the bowl only a small amount of water comes back into bowl. This is a new problem. Could there be a clog?


Is the flapper valve closing sooner then it should? Is the water line (the 1/4" vinyl tube at top of fill valve) going into the tank or into the overflow tube? Did anyone drop anything into the flush valve?

Rust in water heater tank


the tank needs flushed out ! heres how. Water heater manufacturers recommend flushing sediment from your storage type water heater periodically.
If your water heater is gas, set the gas valve to "Pilot" to prevent the burners from coming on while you are flushing it. If your heater is electric be sure to turn off the circuit breakers. With an electric water heater, if the water level drops below the heating elements and the thermostat turns the elements on, the heating elements will probably burn out quite rapidly. Connect a garden hose to the drain valve at the bottom of the tank, Close the shut off valve on the cold inlet to the water heater. open the temperature/pressure relief valve at the top of the tank by lifting the lever. Leave the valve open. Open the drain valve at the bottom of the heater allowing the water to flow out through the garden hose. when the water is clear your finished. close pressure relief valve on top of tank and turn water back on.
Open a hot water faucet in your house, and let it run until no air bubbles come out.

Turn the heater back on, and with gas units re-light the pilot light if necessary. good-day !

How to fix fill water shooting up and over when flushing?


I don't exactly know what you mean so i will cover all the basics. The fill valve sends fills water in 2 locations. 1) the fill valve fills at the low end (from the bottom to the top) of the tank. This is the flush water level. It needs to be stopped by a float switch before the water overflows into the over flow tube.
2) the fill valve fills water via a small tube at the top of it which this tube NEEDS to be pointed into the overflow tube with a high arch. THIS water is filling your toilet bowl section to proper flushing height. If your water in your bowl does not reach proper height and someone removes this tube to aim it into the tank where the other water is stored, THEN you may have the problems you described and you will need to do several flushes to remove waste.
SO to reiterate 1) make sure your float cuts off and stops the filling cycle before the water flows into the over flow tube. This is done from 1 or 2 adjustment screws. and 2) make sure the small black tube is aimed down into the over flow tube with a good arch. The arch prevents back siphon.

Water leaking from the tank & down the outside of the Magic DeLux


I have a Saeco Magic Deluxe that does/did the same. The water tank, when filled would empty down the side of the machine and all over the counter top.

I recognized that the lid on the water tank, when pressed firmly in place, created a back-pressure because air was not able to get into it and level out the pressure. I've resolved this problem by leaving the lid slightly ajar allowing air to circulate into the water tank itself. I've also thought about drilling a tiny hole into the lid itself but have not done that yet for I don't want to comprimise the plastic.

Cimmaron one piece elongated doesn't have enough water in BOWL.


Make a small mark with a pencil or marker that can be erased of were your water line is in your bowl. Pour some water from a bucket into the bowl SLOWLY and see if the water line rises or drops back down to your original mark. If it drop back to the original mark, then that is the way the toilet was made. You won't be able to do anything about it. If it rises and stays at a higher level, then you have a problem with the fill tube in the tank. You will need to call a Pro!
