My turboflush T11 is not pumping away when the toilet is flushed allowing water to overflow. If I drain the toilet and unit then refill it will work for a bit, but then does the same thing again.

You need to replace the fill valve with a oem replacment valve. You need to use toto parts.

SOURCE: american standard cadet 3 leaking around seal

get a new filler assembly. the water in the tank is heavy enough to close the seal completely. or the rubber seal is not making contact. thats' why the leak.
change the whole assemble ususally correct the problem.
adjuste the flow to about 1/4 to 1/3 under the over flow. if that still don't give you the pressure. you ca adjust the flow tube to 1/5 under the cover. that is the max.

SOURCE: 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!

SOURCE: How to unclog the macerator - Saniflo TurboFlush P

First unplug the unit from the GFI, remove all the piping attached to the pump, remove the pump completely out the back of the toilet. Pry open the lid with a flat head screw driver, remove 2 screws in front of the pump and the motor and pressure chamber can be pulled out the top as one piece. Inspect the blades (on top of motor) also inspect the impeller which is at the bottom of the motor, you must turn the black pump cover plate counter clock wise to unlock it and inside there you will find the impeller. Also check the drain pipe for obstructions.

The saniflow is trickling and filling up bowl then flushes itself


You need to adjust the float. Or, you can buy the complete inexpensive float valve assembly at Lowes or Home Depot and can install it in less than 5 minutes. Turn off the water supply, drain the tank, sop up the remaining water in the tank or put a pan under the tank opening for the next step, remove the valve assembly and float and install the new valve assembly with the float included. Turn on the water supply and set the water level adjustment valve to about 1/4 inch below the stand pipe overflow drain. This is done by the float assembly. Turn on the water supply. This completes the change-out.

Tip

How to adjust a toilet


  • Your toilet tank may simply need a good "tune-up." Here are some adjustments you can make.

  • Refill valve. If your tank has a conventional ballcock refill valve, the water level is adjusted by bending the float arm. The level should be high enough for complete flushes, but the water should not be to the top of the overflow pipe. Your tank should have a colored or molded water level mark. It should never be set so low that the bowl does not refill with trap sealing water. The rule of thumb is to set the water level about 3/4" below the top of the overflow pipe.

  • If the float rubs on other parts, simply adjust the float arm sideways. If the float lacks buoyancy, unscrew then shake it to determine if it is waterlogged. A waterlogged float should be replaced. The float arm can also be replaced, if needed.

  • In tanks using modern plastic refill valves, the tank water level is adjusted in other ways. If your tank uses a hand nut, turn the nut clockwise to raise, or counterclockwise to lower, the water level. Or, your tank may have a sliding pinch clamp on an adjustment rod.

  • Flush valve. Replacements for a flush ball and its actuating mechanism are available, but it may be possible to stop a leak with minor adjustments. Check the following mechanisms before purchasing replacements.

  • See that the guide arm is centered directly over the seat. The guide arm should drop the flush ball directly into its seat. If the flush ball is not seating properly, make the adjustment shown.

  • The guide arm should allow the flush ball to rise enough for a complete flush. If not, raise the arm. Be careful that it isn't too high–then it will prevent the ball from closing completely.

  • Check that the upper lift wire pulls the flush ball high enough. To adjust it, simply bend the wire for a higher or lower lift.

  • The lifting hardware on a flapper-type flush valve should raise the rubber flapper to start a flush, but should not hold the flapper up off its seat. If this is occurring, the hardware is adjusted too short. Some types allow you to slide the flapper itself up or down on the refill tube to ensure that the flapper meets the valve seat squarely. The lifting hardware and flapper height adjustments are the first things to check when flapper problems arise.

  • Refill tube. If the bowl-refill tube is out of place, water is routed directly into the tank, rather than replenishing water in the bowl. When this is the case, you will likely hear splashing sounds during tank refill. The refill tube should aim directly into the overflow pipe but should not reach below water level. If the tube extends too low, it will siphon tank water silently away. Fix it by repositioning as shown.

  • Defective refill tubes on some valves can be replaced with new plastic ones. Simply place one end of the plastic tube over the serrated plastic lug on the body of the valve, and place the plastic holder in the top of the overflow pipe.

    How to mend a running gural vitrifiye toilet cistern


    With lid removed, look down into it and remove and replace the black rubber thing in the center. This is the flush valve and is worn to the point where is no longer provides a tight seal allowing water to pass and run into bowl. Also, could be something underneath it not allowing it to seat properly.

    Why wont my have a cimarron k3489 toilet fully flush? the water empties from the tank but the water from the bowl does not go down.


    That's an interesting one! Does the flush valve close properly so the tank can refill? Does the float valve allow the tank to refill fully, to near the top of the overflow? That can be adjusted, if it doesn't.

    Check fhe flush valve - you may have an obstruction under it. Also check the water port from the bowl side - feel up inside the port for obstructions or buildup of hard water deposits.

    WASH YOUR HANDS THOROUGHLY afterwards.

    The overflow pipe should be attached to a small clip that holds it in position over the over flow pipe. If it is loose or attached to the outside it will do what yours is doing.

    This could be a problem with the capacitor that has gone bad or something stuck on the blade or impeller and is not allowing the waste to be pumped out. Typically when the capacitor has seized up or there is a clog on the drain pipe, blade or impeller; the unit will just hum and not pump the waste out and eventually back up on the toilet and overflow.

    Saniflow pump keeps comming on without flushing toilet


    Water pressure makes the unit kick on and off. If it's turning on by itself then most likely somehow water is draining back into the pump. It could be leaking water from the toilet tank, to the bowl and from the bowl to the pump. Or the check valve inside the discharge elbow may not be closing all the way down and is allowing waste water to drain back into the pump creating enough water pressure that makes the pump kick on and off. Inspect the flapper on the flush valve and the check valve on the discharge elbow on top of the macerating pump.
