Question about Toto Ultimate One-Piece Toilet MS854114

1 Answer

I have a one piece toto toilet that just started to have a flush problem. I replaced the flapper ball with a toto replacement ball, but when the flush handle is pushed, the toilet bowl does not empty all the way. The handle must be held down during the flush for the bowl to completely empty. please advise how to adjust .

If the flapper is on a chain, you just need to shorten slack on chain to handle.

I bought 2 toto toilets about 7 years ago. One toilet has started to experience about a 2 to 3 second delay from the toilet discharge to the refill. I replaced the flapper ball but no change in the flush....


jasether-

The fill valve is most likely corroded with mineral deposits. You can either try to clean it or replace it (these cost just a few dollars). Remove the old one and take it to a plumbing supply or hardware store to properly match the replacement.

Hope this helps.

Tip

How to fix a flush valve


  • Most toilet tank troubles can be traced to a faulty flush valve. You have three choices in correcting this common problem: (1) repair the old flush valve; (2) replace the flush ball with a more modern flapper or install a glued-in replacement flapper; (3) or install a new flush valve.

  • These repairs require a varying amount of work. The more simple adjustments were discussed previously.

  • Examine the old flush ball or flapper. If it is aged or encrusted with deposits, replace it with a new one. Scale deposits on the seat can be removed with steel wool or with No. 500 wet-or-dry abrasive paper. But if the valve still leaks, it must be replaced.

  • You can install a new guide arm, if necessary. To remove the lift wire from a flush ball, turn it counterclockwise with pliers. If you are replacing all parts, simply cut off the old lift wire.

  • Flapper. To replace a flapper, disconnect the lift hardware from the trip arm and slide the flapper up and off the overflow pipe. Install the new unit, reversing directions, and connect the lift hardware back to the trip arm. Any excess lift chain can be cut off or left dangling, if it doesn't interfere with toilet operation.

  • A loose trip handle can be fixed by tightening. The nut has left-hand threads, and must be turned counterclockwise to tighten (looking from inside the tank). Or, you can install a replacement trip handle.

  • Glue-in repair kit. Many replacement flush valves simply glue in place on top of the old valve seat. While several brands are available, not every type of flush can be replaced by these devices.

  • On single-piece toilet tanks–with a flush valve held in place with flanges that fit inside the opening–the flapper-ball may bind and prevent a leak-proof seal. On more common two-piece toilets, this problem does not occur.

  • Using a glue-in repair kit is quick and easy, but you must follow the manufacturer's instructions. To be sure you purchase the right kind of repair kit, take a rough drawing of the bottom of your toilet tank and flush valve to your hardware or home center store.

Charlesnapostolou@yahoo.comI went to flush my Toto toilet and it would not flush. I took the cover off and discovered that the chain was still attached to the horizontal bar but nothing else. To what do...


There is a piece thats actually called the flapper. It is a rubber flap that has a hing on it and is attached to the bottom of the tank. When you flush, the chain pulls this flap up and allows the water to go out of the tank into the bowl. Attach the chain to the unhinged side of this flapper. Hope this helped.

Toilet runs slightly, can minimally depress the handle to release a bit of water, and it will stop. How to fix?


Toilet runs continuously or doesn't flush adequately

Jiggling the handle might work for a while, but if your toilet is always running or doesn't flush adequately, you need to perform these simple fixes that usually can tame a noisy, inefficient toilet.

Check the Chain

The chain attached to the rubber flapper often becomes loose, causing incomplete flushing and/or continuous running. To fix it, remove links from the chain using needle-nosed pliers until it's tight.

Check Water Level

Improper water levels can also cause problems with your toilet. This can be fixed by adjusting the ball ****, which is located next to the overflow pipe, the open tube to the right of the handle. Adjust the ball **** so the water comes to ½ " below the overflow pipe.

Clean the Surface of the Flush Valve

A continuously running toilet can also be the result of a faulty flush valve. Because the valve is made of rubber, it can decompose or warp allowing water to escape from the tank into the bowl. Clean the sealing surface to see if this will improve the seal. If too decomposed or warped the valve may need to be replaced.

Replace the Flapper

Remove old flapper and replace with a suitable replacement. Attach the flapper to the overflow pipe inside the bowl. Then attach the lever chain from the flapper to the handle lever making sure the chain is taut.

Replace flapper valve in ultramax


Your Toto has the "G-Max" flush valve system. The Korky/Lavelle folks have a carded replacement flapper #2021BP for it. It is red in color and the only generic flapper that will work on your toilet. While it may look the same, do not confuse it with the blue flapper #2022BP. Known as the PowerMax flapper, the blue color is to distinguish between the two and the flappers are totally toilet specific. Let your fingers do the walking and locate a hardware store near you that carries the Korky/Lavelle brand or it can be ordered online from several places using the part number for your search word.
If the fill valve ever stops filling correctly, the Lavelle "Quiet Fill", #528BP, is what Toto uses in most of their toilets.

I cannots top leaking. The toilet is full with water but from time to time it opens the walve to get more water in.


When a fill valve opens up from time to time to let more water in it is because the rubber flapper is not sealing properly and is allowing water to slowly seep out.
Toto Caryles have a 5 year parts warranty so keep this in mind if ti applies. If replacing the flapper doesn't solve the seepage problem then the flush valve (the white assembly the flapper connects to) may have to be replaced.
Be sure to install the new flapper at the exact chain length as the one you removed.

Toto Dartmouth toilet flapper/chain design flaw


Your right this is a poor design. Space was the main reason for this and functionality was sacrificed. However, you can get a replacement rod at a major plumbing store. You could rig it by attaching a stem to the valve assembly. Allow the chain or rubber piece to slide over it. It is kind of like putting a permanent finger in the path of the chain to give it a "direct" lift up. This would then force the chain to go up instead of at an angle.
