Question about Jacuzzi Home

1 Answer

Toilet does not flush clean. sometimes two or thtree flushes are needed to flush B.M> debris down. We have had the plumber out twice, once to install and the second time to raise the water level to flush better. The toilet was installed the week before Christmas 2010 and we are still having the same problems as in the beginning. We have talked with Lowe's and they have no solution, other than to contact Jacuzzi. Surely ,we are notthe only ones with this problem. Trying to conserve water this way defeats the purpose. Can you help us? I am getting very frustrated. HELP!!

Welcome to the world of 1.6 gallon flush toilets. You have already done everything that can be done to help the problem and no you are not the only people having this problem. This is just the beast!
They have had this problem with these 1.6 flush toilets from the get go and have come out with power flush toilets to fix this but hold on to your wallet. There are some toilets out there that work better without the power flush made buy American Standard and Kohler but they will run you more then the Jacuzzi.
Sorry I wish there was a better answer to this.

How do I fix a toilet that bubbles (small air bubbles from below) and flushes slow, and not completely very often?


Remove the toilet & have a plumbing company power snake
as much of the entire homes waste drain as possible

Maybe clogged inside the home on most runs & also out to
the street,have them do as much as they can, out to the street

Remove all toilets, so they can do good job & you can check &
clean them from under it

Have them run a camera down ALL drains & to the street

Toilet bowl will not drain when flushed


if your flapper is held open and the toilet rises to the rim and does not flush then you need a closet auger and clean out the toilet as it has debris restricting the flush

I have a 1 yr old new Danze Orrington two piece toilet. DC013230-DC012223. I have 3 of the same actually but only one is giving me problems...the one on the first floor of the house. The flush is weak...


Your thought is probably correct. Usually toilet tank lids and feet on them to allow air enty. You might have to add rubber feet (self adhesive) or balance the lid on the tank differently.

Handicapp Toilet Bowl does not fill - up as high as regular toilet > very small amount of water in bowl after flushing ie> about 10 cuos of water.. JUST INSTALLED IT NEW YESTERDAY...


Wiith all due respect, the Drake toilet is not a regular toilet and doesn't sound the same as a regular toilet when you flush it. It is in the design that allows it use only 1.5 gpf instead of 3.5 gpf. A rather unique thing is that while it is scientifically calibrated to release 1.5 gpf, it does not empty the tank of approximately 1 gallon of water. Therefore if one feels the need for a little extra umph, simply hold down the flush lever when you flush until the tank is emptied.

TOILET WONT FLUSH AWAY PROPERLY


I believe what your plumber was referring to are the flushing orifices. Yes they have changed through the years. Unless you have a pressure assisted toilet, the orifices are what makes it flush, by breaking the trap seal and creating a vacuum. Now that being said you can check to see if this is the problem by filling up a bucket with aprox. 2 gallons of water and dumping it straight into the bowl. It should flush right down with out hesitation. If it does then your orifices are not working properly. If this is a new stool, it is possible it is just a bad mold and should be replaced. I hope this helps. Your new toilet should flush for you.

Can't install new Kohler rialto Flush Value


First things first, remove the fill valve, and the flush handle mechanism. This will give you plenty of room to work with the flush valve. Before installing flush valve lubricate tabs with plumbers grease. Now put on a pair of work gloves, pushed down very hard and turn the tabs should slide easy because of the grease. Remember do not alter the gasket, the gasket needs to be compressed to do its job. I know removing the fill valve and the flush handle seems like a pain, but there is no way to get your hands in the proper position to install the flush valve assembly.

My Eljer toilet does not always flush completely. It is approximately 20 years old. I don't believe that it is a venting problem. I have dismounted, inspected and remounted the toilet and found nothing...


Not being a plumber by trade I don't want to bad mouth what your plumber had to say but there may be other things to consider.
If the toilet does not flush directly into the main drain there is the possibilty that the coupling between the main drain and the toilet drain is under-sized which could cause reduced water flow and your toilet not flushing completely.
