Water pressure makes the unit kick on and off, definitely somehow water is draining back into the pump casing creating enough water pressure that it makes the unit kick on and off by itself. You need to inspect the flapper on the flush valve inside the toilet tank (water closet) make sure is closing all the way down or it may need to be replaced. Also you may want to inspect the check valve inside the discharge elbow, the check valve has a flapper that opens towards the back of the elbow and allows the waste to be pumped out; when the unit stops pumping the flapper closes back down to prevent waste water from draining back into the pump. The check valve may be defective or may be obstructed and closing all the way down as it should. You may just have to clean it, it may be as simple as that.

What are the most common venting problems for toilets?


What all that means is the sewage pipe going to the street is getting clogged so either snake it with 50 foot snake or go buy so Drain-O (60 ounce bottle costs about $9) and pour 1/5 in toilet and wait 10 minutes then pout 1/5 in Bathroom sink & wait 10 minutes. Keep do that until 60 ounce bottle is empty. Let this stay in pipes for couple hours and your toilet will double flush now its clean with no corrosion, hair, cooking oil, and other debris.

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.

My up flush toilet makes a humming sound every 5


Hi,
The pump has either gone bad or it is siezed up...you can try to unplug the pum and let it sit for a few hours then plug it back in... sometimes if you jog it on and off a few times you can get tiit to break loose and work again...if not you will have to take it out and replace the pump.

Pumps for a few seconds then stops & pumps again for another few seconds & so on


The toilet will flush normally and shut down. Then imediately after it has shut down, as it should, it will start up again and keep going through the flush cycle until I unplug the power going to the pump. After about ten minutes, I can plug it back in and it then will not start up again until I press the flush button.

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.
