Hello,
Most problems with water running right out of the tub and never filling is because the length of the drain hose is too low. It must be routed through the cabinets up as high as possibly the prevent gravity draining and almost as important, to keep the sink from draining over into the D/W in the event the sink gets backed up. Hope this helps. Good Luck

Float adjustment


If there is a flapper, it may not be seating properly and that allows water from the tank to keep leaking into the bowl. Also, if there is a float, it may have a leak that allows water to get inside. The float then is unable to close the fill valve completely. Another possibility is that the fill valve is defective.

After flushing the toilet the bowl only a small amount of water comes back into bowl. This is a new problem. Could there be a clog?


Is the flapper valve closing sooner then it should? Is the water line (the 1/4" vinyl tube at top of fill valve) going into the tank or into the overflow tube? Did anyone drop anything into the flush valve?

Gas is runnung out the over flow tube and bike wont start


Either something is stuck in the float bowl valve or similar. You will need to shut off of the gas, drop the float bowl, check that the float move and closes the valve. If everything looks good and the valve actually closes, then there is a chance the float is fuel logged, or soaked with fuel. It won't float then. Replace the float, clean and/or replace the valve, clean the seat and check for scoring. New gasket on the float bowl, tighten it up, and you should be set.

Replaced the flapper, but now have water seeping from the tank into the bowl


You may have to put a weight in the flapper to keep it closed. First try putting pressure in the flapper and let it sit there for a few mnts and check if water still leaking into the bowl, if it does then there could be a crack in the porcelain leaking water or the whole flush valve will need to be replaced. After putting pressure in the flapper and it stops leaking then you just need to put a weight inside the flapper to keep it closed.

Honda presure washer is mixing gas in the oil of engine


Usually if gas is getting into the motor oil it is because the float valve isn't closing in the carburator when the float bowl is full and gas keeps on flowing into the cylinder and down into the crankcase. This can be caused by any peice of dirt or foreign matter getting between the needle valve and the seat so it can't close. It can also be because the float is damaged and won't float.

My neighbours saniflow toilet is drivng me mad. The motor keeps whirring every 5 mins. Whats the problem, please!


Water pressure is what makes the unit kick on and off. If its kicking on by itself most likely water is somehow draining back into the pump. Start by checking the flapper in the flush valve inside the toilet tank, it may be leaking water into the bowl and from the bowl into the pump. Also inspect the check valve inside the 90 degree elbow where the waste is pump out from. The check valve may not be closing properly and is allowing waste water to drain back into the pump creating water pressure making the unit kick on and off by itself.

The toilet keeps flushing on its own - every few minutes. What can I do?


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.

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.

Toto flapper seems ok but toilet keeps slow trickle into the bowl


The water inlet valve should close completely and stop water from coming into the tank before the water level reaches the "small tube." (This is the overflow tube.)

There may be an o-ring or rubber gasket inside the valve that can be replaced. If not, you would have to replace the water inlet valve.
