If you shut the water supply to the toilet before augering..the washer in the supply stop got loose and is causing water to be forced thru...shut the supply to the house off and remove the nut just behind the supply handle under tank and inspect..the water rushing thru supply is causing hammering..clogs and water supply have nothing in to do with each other

My neorest 500 smells we have had it for 4 years. I am wondering what can be done. we love the toilet.


Smells usually come from the tank and not the bowl.
Buy tank deodorizer from local store located near toilet brushes.

Deodorizer hangs inside tank. make sure it reaches the water.

You can also drain and clean the tank using CLR calcium lime and rust remover.
The CLR and gunk are fine for flushing away as long as the gunk doesn't clog the flush holes that let water flow into bowl.

Sewer line can also cause of odor.
If the toilet bowl is not full of water, or if nearby drain is not filled with water, or if toilet is not sealed tight against floor, or if toilet appears to have dampness visible around base, or if a vent pipe terminates behind a wall instead of on the roof: these things can cause sewer air to enter room.

Five year old Toto toilet has developed a very slow flush in the past few weeks. Plumber has found no clog in line and water from hose flows freely with no back up. We have two other similar Toto toilets...


This can happen if there is a hole (physical damage) inside the trap. Instead of the weight of the water during a flush causing it to drain right down suddenly and completely, it draws in air and loses the momentum. There could be a hole or a crack, which may be hard to find without removing the unit.

Toilet drains to a certain level every half hour then refills with a sqeaky noise,when flused it makes a very loud sqeaky noise.


May need to replace toilet flapper or entire flush valve. water is getting from the tank into the toilet which is causing this to happen.

Toto toilet has weak flush


Check water level in tank and also under rim off toliet bowl where water come's out. Make sure level in tank is right and it has ports all around rim. they can be clogged up also.

You can use a roofing nail to stick in ports it is several around under rim that you can't see but are there where water comes out. Because if the ports some are stopped up it will restrict proper amount of water to certain areas.

Water won't go down the bowl..Seems to flush fine except water wont go down...Nothing is obstructing it..it is not clogged


If water won't go down, you have an obstruction. It might be up inside the trap of the toilet. Use a closet auger to try to remove it. If the toilet trap is clear, you either have a clogged stack or vent.

Increase water in toilet tank-low flush Toto toilet


Yes adjust the float level to raise the amount of water in the tank, If you have a float that is a ball around the tank you will have to turn the water off and remove the hose from the tank and remove the nut then pull the water float device out and you will see a clap on the bottom of the float you will turn the float base so that it gets longer, increase it by two inchess so that you increase water flow. Reinstall into the tank hook it all back up and leave the lid off turn on the water and watch the water level rise be sure the float shuts the water off before it over flows, if it starts to over flow then fush it to bring the water down giving you enought time to shut off the water valve.
There is a problem adding low water systems to older septic systems. The septic pipe settles in the ground over time and may cause a ~~~ in the pipe thus causeing blockage. For future reference you can add a one gallon bottle of water in the tank like a milk jug or a used up bottle of puerified water that you have drank and this will decrease it by one gallon per flush. Hope this helps. If you need more asstance just posttothis reply!

Toto CST853 cistern will not refill. Was fine yesterday. City is working on pipes and broke a water main last evening, all other faucets and toilets are working....can I clean the water filter or does it...


alot of times you can turn the water off to the toilet and the tops of the fill valves usually pop or screw off. then if you put a small cup over the top of the fill valve you can turn it back on and flush the debris out and put it back together. if its a fluid master type you can pop the top off it. and turn the float arm a 1/4 to half turn and the whole top will come off

I have a toto toilet. After flushing it is taking a very long time to fill up.


Make sure that the fill valve doesn't have debris caught inside near the valve needle. Also the tube that attaches onto the flush valve can become clogged near the fill valve as well. Remove the hose and then take a needle and try and clear the outlet. Blow through the tube to insure that it's not blocked as well.

Flush


it sounds to me as though its the ballvalve not shutting off properly & when it does shut off the noise you hear is a water hammer, and my guessing is you have a water meter with a back flow prevention valve fitted so when the ballvalve shuts off the pressure exerted on the valve cant go anywhere due to the back flow unit so the noise is the water reverberating through loose pipe-work, annoying but not damaging
