Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

i dont think you have toilet issue,

Try this. take a large bucket, like a paint or home depot orange bucket. fill 1/2 way...
put some toilet paper in the toilet. Then pour the water in fast, and see how it flushes. it it does a easy flush then your drain is ok. if its slow, you have a drain issue and not the toilet.

if that the case, then goto the toilet, and clean out all of the little holes, that are around the unit.. where you see the water come out. they can be clogged up. a small type wire like a clothes hanger.

I tried to help you. Please help me and Rate/Vote on my response. We take the time to answer your question. take the time to rate us.Thanks and good luck

    That's not the problem. The toilet flushes just fine, when it flushes. After letting the toilet sit for an hour or two I come to it and push the plunger and almost nothing happens. I do it again and a bit more action happens. About the 4th time I push the plunget it runs water for a ewhile and then begins to fill as usual, but it takes another one or two flushes before it really works properly. Then, well then it will work great until the next time you leave it alone.

When I flush the water goes down but does not take the paper with it... Help!!! Called sani plus company and they don't know!!!


If the paper isn't flushing, that means it's got too much drag to be carried down with the water. You've got a few options here:

1) Use lower ply paper, as it will be easier to flush
2) Use less paper, or flush after each wipe
3) Improve your toilet to a high rate-of-flow toilet

Saniplus pump sounds like a jackhammer


I'm glad you asked today, and not 3 months ago!
We also have this model, and ours is hooked to a septic tank, and with a whole lot of trouble, I believe we have your answer.
It is: Toilet paper.
You can pull up the Sani-flush people on line, and they will help you disassemble your unit and clean it. You should find it bound up with a big wad of toilet paper. The newer toilet papers, particularly the softer/gentler/stronger ones, are more glue than paper, and will clog up everything. After our latest go-around a few months ago, we had to go to some stores and buy an assortment of toilet papers, and put samples in glass jars with water, and shake them, to see which would disintegrate, and which stayed together. Because of this, sounds like you will find this the problem. Best not push the motor, or it may burn up, and be quite expensive to fix.
Be blessed,

I have both a dual flush and a conventional high eff. toilet. the water level on both are set on maximum. but the dual flush won't flush toilet paper in a single fluh. can i change out the complet


Why do you want to change it out just because it doesn't take paper out ? The problem is in your trap. Don't change it unless you just want to. I don't think you can change it over anyway due to design differences.

A small intermittent water leak in the flapper flush valve unit which also causes "water hammer" in the copper piping in the basement. New flapper valves did not solve the problem Sanding...


Older Eljer toilets are good for this and yes you need to replace the complete flush valve assembly. I would recommend putting in a fluid master system as they in my opinion are the best. Their kits come complete with everything you need to do the job and provide excellent instructions and if that is not good they have videos on their web site. The site is slow to load but worth waiting for.

I bought a toilet from homedepot in toronto 6 months ago. from yesterday, it keeps to refill the tank like every 10 seconds. but i can not see where the water leaks


There are a few likely causes for a toilet to leak and refill. The most common is the flapper not seating properly. Usualy on an American Standard it is a disc. Either way, they are fairly easy to replace. One test I use to see if the leak is comming from the flush assembly is to put a couple drops of food coloring in the tank and wait a few minutes to see if it appears in the bowl. If so, there is a leak in the flush assembly, usualy the flapper. Hope this heps. Please vote to let me know.

Have to hold down toil handle for 4 secs to flush


Assuming we are talking about a standard flush toilet, it sounds like the internal flush actuator lever is hitting the top of the toilet on the inside. Remove the lid, hold the exterior handle. and carefully bend the lever down a little. Also make sure the lever hasn't slipped or is loose. Put the lid back on try again. Repeat until the toilet flushes with the lid on.

Toilet wont flush completely. it may take 4 times or more to flush solids. i at first thought this was related to heavy rains we had been receiving in the area over a period of about 4 months. 2 days...


there is no air release. the vent must be clogged somewhere. you can take a hose up there and see if it drains all the way or floods over. since the tub drain has a trap and the toilet itself is a trap, there has to bee a good amount of air pressure coming up without a release. i would say an obstruction. possibly at the junction of the main and the vent.

My toilet only a few weeks old. It flushes fine


Sorry, but the only reasonable solution is to assume that the toilet was installed incorrectly and the wax seal misplaced. Or the sewer line is clogged. I would remove the toilet and take a look-see. A plumber could use a snake to check for obstructions.

Toilet sounds like it is flushed or water filling up in the tank.


if the toilet has a 'flapper' is there slack in the chain connecting it to the flush arm? The flapper life is usually around 4 years or so - replace it if older.
