Of course it is possible, It is a fairly simple job. But, depending on how you are routing the pipes, will be the tough part. Plus running a cold supply line to the tank. Where is the soil/drain/ 3 inch pipe located compared to the potential new spot? Do you have enough room for the pitch? How about the cleanout? Vent behind the line? It will need to be vented somewhere close or it wont flush. A diy book on toilets should explain all this to you. Hope this helps.

Just wondering if it is okay to put a duel flush toliet in a basement. We live in Winnipeg Manitoba our house came with the pipes rough in thank you for you time


understand that a duel flush toilet is just a water saving idea and not an engineered specific situation
the flush is 1/2 for one flush or full for the other
the flush action and waste disposal is the same as for a single flush unit

Would a vent problem cause the water to back up in the tub and cause the toliet to bubble?


A vent would cause an odor problem but not a back up problem. There should be a clean out between the house and septic tank, if it is full the blockage is down the line, if its dry the blockage is in the house.

Bought a american standard toilet tank to replace our leaky tank. after installation and turned on the water, but the tank is filling very slowly. what could be wrong?


Actually sounds like trash in the toliet water valve.....or possible that if teflon tape was used to seal threads has been drapped accross inlet threads and caused blockage......Best way to check this is to take supply line loose from toliet and slowly turn water on while pointing the supply into a bucket or something to catch the water and see if the pressure is ok......Then check valve to see if grit or blockage is in the toliet valve.........Depends on valve design to whether or not you will be able to clean....may have to replace toliet valve with new one......hope this helps

Sewer smell in house since installing the new toliet and the toliet gurgles when the washing machine is on. It started with the new toliet now the gurgling and smell is also present in another bathroom.


It sounds like a vent problem.
On top of each house is a vent stack.
There should be a vent stack above each toilet, and above kitchen sink.
Look for pipes sticking out of roof.
These pipes are open to the sewer line.
When you run a column of water down a drain, the vent stack lets air flow in front of and behind the column of water.
This air flow prevents the gurgling sound.
The gurgling sound is the drain water pushing air in front of it because of a clogged vent.
If you have a two story house, there are vents that run between floors to prevent the air flow from gurgling or bubbling sewer air into each drain as water column moves down pipe.

Look for bird nest over vent pipe on top of house.
Run a snake down into pipe from roof and see if the is a stoppage.
You many need to call plumber to track down each vent and the cause.
For example if there are quick-vents installed inside a wall and the quick vent is no longer working.

You can also take advantage of fixya phone support.

Need to chek generator, air filter and airflow microcircuit. If the airflow is not sufficient engine dyies with out strugle, just gets slower and stop's. If it's electric problem, it's stops immediately or stops with blows and twitching.

Toliet won't get rid of solids


first shorten the chain from flush lever to the flapper valve by one or two links at a time until flushing properly

second the flapper valve might need a wipedown as well as its seal (top edge of tube where water goes down into bowl) the leaking is because the flapper valve is not seating properly.. you may need to replace the flapper itself.. easy to do, and a common part at hardware store.
