My past and now New currant mansfield toilet bowls do not refill with water after the third flush allowing gas to escape back into our house. My plumber is baffled and I'm afraid to purchase another brand for fear of still having the same problem.

If you are working with a plumber that can't answer your question, than what kind of help do you think you will get here. Not much of a plumber if you ask me, if you had problems with your first Mansfield why on earth would you purchase another, and use the same plumber??? I put a Kohler in, when I put a addition on my house and it's been working over TEN years without question and did not need a plumber to install. Take the thing back where you purchased it and exchange for an Eljer or Kohler and do not consult that braincell of a plumber, I would do it myself it's not hard go to you tube and teach yourself there are thousands of tutorials out there for doing just this DIY project.

SOURCE: MMy past and now New currant mansfield toilet

If you already have your answer to this disregard.
Are you saying that the old toilets and the new ones all did or are doing the same thing?
If yes are they installed on the same DWV (drainage waste and vent) plumbing system as the old ones?
How many toilets are we talking about?
Are any of the problem toilets set back to back in two bathrooms with a common wall?

How do I stop water running into pan after toilet has been flushed &refilled.


If there is water still running into the toilet bowl, there is a problem with your flapper or flush valve. The most common problem, and least expensive to fix, is the flapper has gone bad and is allowing water to escape past it. Replace the flapper and the water should stop running. If not, it is possible the flush valve or one of the seals holding it to the tank has gone bad and needs replaced. Try replacing the whole flush valve. They come in a kit that includes the valve, flapper, and seals.

My Mansfield toilet flushes but only 1/3 of the water in the tank flows out during a flush and the bowl does not get enough water to flush everything.


Check the water level int he tank for it coming up to fill line in tank. Make sure the 1/4 " fill line from the fill valve is connected and in the stand pipe tube to allow water to fill bowl. Fluid master makes a flapper that has adjustments on it to increase or decrease water used to flush. It has a dial to move on it this would be another option if the above tried doesn't help.

Thansk and I hope this will help you with this problem.

My Mansfield No. 35 toilet - it flushes fine and then the bowl slowly empties over the day until the bowl is empty. There is no leaking of water and the water is full in the tank. Help??


You are describing a couple of possible problems, neither of which have super easy solutions.
The worst case senario is that there is a crack in the passageway the water travels when it is flushed and just happens to be at a spot that allows the leaky water to go into the floor drain and not on the floor. This is most likely to happen in a brand new toilet situation in which case you take the bowl back to where it was purchased and exchange it.

The most likely scenario however is that there is some form of material caught in the passageway and is "wicking" the water out of the bowl. As water in the bowl disappears from view when you flush, it travels uphill for a moment....over a hump..and then down to continue its journey to the sewer drain. When a piece of material is caught laying over that hump with one end in the bowl water and the other end hanging in empty space, it will draw the water out of the bowl "wick" just like a wick in an oil lamp sucks the oil up through it so the flame continues to burn the oil and not the wick.
Often times just using a plunger vigorously, after a flush and the bowl has refilled, for a couple of minutes will help get the pesky piece over the hump. Otherwise only a special toilet snake (most often called a closet auger) will solve this issue. If you need to get this auger, Do NOT think if it costs more then it must be better. They can range up to $35 or more. You should be able to get this tool, that hopefully you will never have to use again, for between $10 to $15

When flushing the toilet, there is not a lot of "push" behind the flush. I'm having to flush two times, regardless of what is in the toilet.


It is normal for these useless new tanks to do that. Won't even flush a piece of paper. Pull off the lid and make sure the little hose is in the overflow pipe, and raise the water level as high as you can. take out all the bricks and water bottles, and bowl cleaners. Then give it a try. It might do a bit better. Hope this helps.

After a flush the bowl slowly empties over about 10-15 minutes


If bowl is emptying, the most common cause is a crack in the bowl. I have however seen a string get hung in the throat and siphon the water out slowly. May want to pull stool and take a good look. Hope this helps.

Have Mansfield #160 and hear a fog horn like sound when flushing toilet. What can I do to fix?


Are your wast water pipes in your house vented through the roof? If they are maybe the vent pipe is clogged. At my father in-laws house the pipes are not vented through the roof like their supposed to be to vent sewer gas. they are not vented at all. Every time you flush it sounds like someone is downs stairs screaming. Something to do with air/ suction in the pipes.

Toilet will not flush


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

Toilet tank is refilling slowly.


Hi AaronYC,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumbe.

Your problem is: Installed a new American Standard Cadet 3 toilet bowl and tank at home. When you turn the water supply on, the tank refills normally and stops normally. After you flush, the refill is very slow. When it refills normally the water comes out from the bottom of the pipe (i.e. the pipe that houses the float cup) and when it is refilling slowly, it comes from the top of the pipe. Sometimes (but not always), you can shut the water supply off and when you turn it back on, the flow of water goes from slow to fast instantly - but you haven't been able to recreate this consistently.

These are the facts. American Standard has been keeping costs down by out sourceing. Their toilets are now built in third world countries and parts are made cheap. They're all doing it. Quality control is pretty good but your toilet came with a bad "ballcock". That's the refill part on the left. Because it's new, if you take the ball **** back to place of purchase they should give you new. If not, they cost less than $ 10.00 and easy to replace.
