I seen two tpyes one where the inter jet unscrew and the other where the outter ring unscrews not sure what kind you have . Went to the pool store and they had a cleaner you add to the water and then run the unit for about 20 minutes then drain . It seem to work pretty good and there was less hassel taking the jets apart

We have 3 toilets in the house. the tanks won't refill after flushing
You may have dirt getting into your water from the well and clogging the fill valves in your toilets. Valve assembly can be opened and cleaned out from the top. Instructions are available on AS website for your model. (Note) If you are picking up material from your well, a sediment filter should be added to your water line.

Water pressure is low in bath and kitchen
Check the aerators for debris. Aerators are located at the end of the spout where the water comes out. Usually these unscrew counterclockwise (some models require a tool). Rinse out and reinstall. They may be just a lower flow model.

My urinal is leaking at
There is a rubber gasket between the urinal outlet and the pipe it connects to in the wall.
Pull the bolts holding it to the wall and pull it away carefully.
If it has been siliconed to the way, you'll have to cut it. Swap out the gaskets.
Be careful not to pinch the new gasket.
Ask at your local plumbing supply for the gasket of your particular model. They'll know what your talking about.

Dont know how to tighten
There is a plastic cap that you need to flip open. You can do this by prying the flap at the top of the hinge. Once you pop it open you will need a screw driver to turn the screw that is inside/underneath the hinges. Turn the screw clockwise until it is good and snug. then snap the hinge cap back into place by applying pressure to it.

Bought a american standard toilet
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

The pump will hum, but
If the pump hums and does not pump the water then there is a probability that the pump does not pump. Usually when most pumps spoil they still hum and sound like they are functioning fine but in actual fact they have stopped working. First get the pump checked out if it has water supply intact if the supply of water to the pump is okay then the pump might need replacement or fixing as this means the pump is bad.
Usually due to the cost of replacement pumps most people prefer to fix instead of just replacing, get a trusted expert to help you check if the pump is worth repairing or should just be replaced.
Hope this solution has been helpful?
Thank you for visiting FixYa.

My toilet doesn't flush every
I think the problem with your toilet bowl is in the tank fitting of it..you better check if the fittings are proprerly working..You also check the flapper and also the fillvalve.
If it is not good already you can replace it by buying the tank fittings at the hardware store..And you better also be check it to your plumber for the second thought..

Whirlpool tub no longer turns
I would suggest that you have a electrician check the motor and make sure that the start capacitor is still good and that the switch is ok. It could be that due to lack of use that the motor needs cleaned and oiled. Thank you.
