Flush tank valve for a commercial urinal

Am having problems with the American Standard flush tank valve for the urinals at my church. It was very dirty and I took it apart and soaked it in vinegar to remove the mineral deposits. Now I am looking for instructions that show how to set it up to work properly.

Put new valve in the urinal, flushes fine, but loud groaning noise in the wall after every flush, didn't happen until new valve put in. What can I do?

Cadet 3 toilet smells like pee - NOT a SEWER smell, a urine smell. It's a brand new toilet, installed by our contractor. There's a brand new extra thick wax ring too. The room smells like urine when nobody...

If your contractor supplied the toilet, then it is his/her problem, not yours. If you supplied the toilet, then: take a mirror and examine under the lip of the bowl. How does the glazing look? Are there areas without glaze? If so, these bare areas are a breeding ground for bad odors. You can try a thorough cleaning both inside the bowl and around the outside of the toilet with an amonia cleaning product. If you use amonia, DO NOT use bleach: the two combined create a deadly gas. Whatever you do, do not hang a bleach based product inside the tank: the bleach will eat away at anything rubber inside the tank. There is a bleach product that hangs inside the tank and disperses the bleach directly into the tube that leads to the toilet bowl. This would be OK.

My urinal is leaking at the bottom between the urinal and wall. it leaks when we flush it, and only when we flush. it is an american standard with a royal solan flusher assembly

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.

How do I increase the water pressure when flushing a wall-mounted urinal?

I don't know witch valve you're working with but most volume control adjustments are located under a screw off cap on the front of the valve. Remove that cap and there will be a small slotted screw that when you turn in it reduces the flush time and out increases it.


Urinal is overflowing, no obstruction in drain

my urinals are overflowing how can I fix this problem I have put a brick in the tank how can I stop this

Water leaking on floor...when urine water

Before you flush the toilet, take the top cover off the tank.
Then flush.. Sometimes water sprays from the float valve,
sprays up against the underside of the cover, then runs down
the back of the toilet.

All my best to you.


I have a Sloan urinal that will not stop flushing. I have rebuilt it with a total rebuild kit. I cleaned the inside of all surfaces and I flushed the entire piping system to no avail. It will not stop...

The rubber vacuum relief needs to also be changed if you have not. It is located in the tube that runs down to the urinal from under the flush valve. The handle could be hanging up.....or there could still be sediment stopping the diaphragm from working properly.

Urinal leaks need help

You will have to shut water off, that is what the screw does(so it can be worked on). you will need 2 pipe wrenches, always use 1 wrench to back up or hold fixture when using other wrench to open valve. That said with top of valve off now you can replace the flush valve diaframe. You can go lowes or some other improvment store/
