Question about American Standard Plumbing

Open Question

Have same dual flush on all house systems. One is letting water continuously into lavatory. On examining, filling system labelled Fluid Master USA 400 series and dual flush system has no name but a number 38 8-22407000 B5. Flanges (4) on unit to attach dual flush unit to base fitting of cistern have broken off - so preventing seal and allowing water to continually leak into lavatory pan. Flushing unit also firmly attached to press-button component and therefore ceramic cistern top cover . Have not tried to fix it yet but need to know full spec to order and whether new unit will have full instructions on how to detach unit from cistern top and push button component OR can you tell me how best to do it?

I have a uberhaus dual flush toilet. I turned off the water supply in the house to work on a sink and when I turned it back on the toilet won't fill anymore. If I fill the tank or the bowl it will flush...

You will have to disassemble the fill valve and clean it. When you shut the water off and on to work on the sink it dislodged dirt and scale in the water piping which clogged the toilet fill valve. Check your lavatory sink areators too they may also be partially plugged. Hope this helps.

Jacuzzi toilet

After flush the system must close the hole which lets water into the toilet. If it does not close after flush, it is continuously letting the water thru. Check if it closes after flush and allows tank to fill.

There's a bleed screw located at the bottom of the radiator. Open screw let fluid run out of radiator. Fill radiator with water run vehicle. Repeat above steps until fluid is clear. Use a coolant system flush. Refill system with appropriate amount of coolant and water.

Aquia II Dual Flush Toilet: toilet after flush removes to much water from bowl...

Adjust the float on the Fluid-master a little higher if possible. This should allow more water to enter the bowl after the flush.

Toilet acts like it's getting pluged up as soon as you flush .

use a two gallon buck to flush your toilet - you pour the two gallons directly into the toilet bowl if it flushes fine you need to replace the flush valve, as it is not letting enough water through to properly flush the commode. either rebuild the flush system in the tank or install a fluid master and have a good nights sleep knowing that in the morning you will not leave a suprise for someone else in the family.

Toto Toilet - no water flow to refill tank after flush

Remove the tank lid and look at the fill valve. Is it a yellow valve?
This fill valve is common on the Toto Toilets and can easliy plug with debrie.

They can be disassmbled and cleaned. however, I usually just replace the valve with Fluid Master Fill valve.
You will also want to check the water coming into the toilet by turning off the water that supplies the toilet and disconnecting the water supply line. After removing the water supply line turn on the water at the valve to make sure that the water is flowing properly. Check the supply line also to make sure it is not plugged.
Be sure and place a small container to catch the water that will come from the valve. A towell will also help from making too much of a mess.
If the Supply line and the valve are clear the problem is in the fill valve.
The G-Max system denotes the Flushiing system which is a 3" flapper that allows the water from the tank to flow into the bowl quicker.
Good Toilets!
