the reason for this that the toilet valve have loss out from it position for the water to be able to flow out completely

what you need to do from here is that you have to open the water carrier that is behide the toilet sitter the valve will need to be adjusted down a bite from the screw that help in holding the valve for the water to be able to flow out as usual
after this then your flush valve will allow all the water to run out to flush the toilet well

Good luck and thanks for using fixya.

I would check to see if the water supply valve is turned on to start.
Is it a new install?

This is usually caused by a partial blockage inside the toilet. Try using a plunger to clear it, if that doesn't work, get a toilet auger from your local home improvement store

low water in the bowl is only caused by the float being to high! the gurgles is Usually because of air coming back up through the pipe, check your vent pipe that come out the roof. this will help the draining.

Hi bubba
You have a blockage between the toilet and the septic tank or drain that is causing the water to flow into the tub

You can look at the gasket thats hooked between the flush valve and the toilet and see if its in bad shape and letting water get past it and eventully flushing your toilet. If its bad i would try to find one similar or drain the holding tank and use a little clear water proof silicone on it. Use a paper clip to clean out the hose going to the flush valve and you should be good to go.

This happens when the floor is not level. You need to keep the tank tight to the bowl. Silicone a shim under the lid on the low side to make the lid level. This will make the tank look level also

Hi chanryan...
You need to adjust your float level in the tank.
Look on the arm of the float ball and there should be a screw that you can adjust the level of the tank water.
Turn the screw to raise the level of the water in the tank, to just about a 1/2 inch of the overflow pipe
If it will not adjust then you will have to replace the float valve (ballcock...is what it is called)
Please take time to rate me

You will probably need to change the entire valve. Get a new valve that has a built in float and you can take all those old faulty parts out. Turn the water valve off under the stool, flush the stool once maybe twice to get all the water out of the tank. Have a big towel ready, because when you take the valve loose from the stool you will have a little water escape out the hole. The nut that holds the valve to the tank is under the tank. You will also have to take the supply water line loose from the valve.. You should probably go ahead and change the rubber flapper , which is located in the center of the inside of the tank. A new valve and flapper can be purchased at any hardware store.

If it has a flapper in the bottom of the tank, the flapper is probably stuck open due to something restricting it or may be just worn out. Take the top of the tank and look directly down at the center. Flush the stool and you will see the flapper come up. A few seconds it should go back down and seal the outlet.

If there is a continual leak in to the toilet bowl you will likely need to replace the flush valve or the toilet flapper.

As a first step try try cleaning the sealing surface of the flush valve to se if the flapper will seat and make a seal.

If this does not work and the flapper is visibly detioriated and breaking down shut off the water supply, remove the toilet flapper and visit your local plumbing supply store to purchase a suitable replacement. Install the new flapper, turn on water supply.

These illustrated instruictions may also assist:


Although less likely, if the sealing surface of the flush valve is damaged or detioriated proceed with replacement of the flush valve. Again turn off water supply and follow the instructions set out here:


If there is not a leak in to the toilet bowl and the water flow does not shut off completely, then water is flowing through the fill valve and the overflow pipe and you may need to adjust the float and float rod to allow clsoure of the fill valve. See here:

Fluid master ballcock,counter clockwise,water level should be 1'' below overflow tube,you'll probubly have to adjust a few times (flushes) to get it right

Hi, W/D here.

Three things can affect the flushing force of an ultraflush:
1. The amount of water going into the bowl from the tank. Check to make suer that the water level in the tank is up to the fill line. Normally the line is cast into the inside of the tank, but may be on the tube. Adjust if low.
2. The supply water pressure. An ultraflush requires 25 psig pressure to provide the assist in flushing. Make sure that your toilet water supply line valve (at the wall) is fully open. If so, check your water supply pressure. The easiest way is to install a gauge on an outside faucet (you can get a gauge in the sprinkler section of the hardware store, and it attaches to a faucet). You may need to replace your flexible water supply line; they can collapse internally, or get debris in them.
3. Restrictions in the outflow. A bit harder to check, but the tell-tale sign would be if the water level rises significantly, and drains slowly.
My best guess is that the assist pressure is low, and I'd look for restrictions in the supply side first.

Best regards, --W/D--

Hi, if you remove the cistern lid and flush the toilet, look at the float (back left) to see if this is rising freely when the water fills back up. Once the water has stopped filling, check the fill level lines on the large syphon in the middle of cistern. Your model of toilet has an eco flush which will be lowest line to save water, so not as much water will flush out. There is a long plastic screw on the float (back left) which you can turn to adjust the water level to the higher line on syphon (1.6 gallon flush) and turn it slowley till the water level reaches that mark. flush a couple of times to see it is filling back up to the set amount.

It is clogged up, needs to be plunged, If you have a clean-out that you can peek in, see if the water flows by fast there or not, It could just be at the bowl. If not, you will need to snake the clean-out or the vent through the roof. I had a job once where the water stopped up and I couldn't find the clog, so I had to saw the pipe in a few places till I found it, and when I let it go, It went. All over the place. It was in 3 inch pipe that is supposed to drain, it didn't, so check it out, hope this helps.
