If the leak is at the bottom of urinal the fixture is cracked and must be replaced. Now if yo mean the is a leak between wall and urinal, you shut water off remove urinal from wall, and the is a a Wax gasket used specifically for wall hung urinals between the fixture an wall. You can purchase gaskets at plumbing supply You will need to access mounting bolts from the bottom. when remounting if you over tighten the nuts the fixture will crack just like a toilet, too loose and the fixture will leak.

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.

Water leaking on floor...when flush..no 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.

Brand new fridge. I have a bad smell like urine comming out from the bottom front. is this a leak.. fridge is staying cold. this smell started a week ago. Fridge is 2 months old

smell is urea,it is a gas produced when plastics get hot,it will go away in time,but also check the drain for a blockage (syringe with clorine bleach)and if fitted, wipe out the condensate pan with clorine
last make sure the door seals fit all round as iif not flush any condensate will drip out from the front bottom.

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.

I need a blue print on how a sloan urinal flush valve works and how the water flowes through it. if posable exactly how it works.

SLOAN FLUSH VALVES ARE SIMPLE. IT DEPENDES ON THE PROBLEM. IF THE VALVE KEPS RUNNING AFTER IT IS FLUSHED THE RUBBER DIAPHRAM IS DIRTY OR OLD AND THE RUBBER DIAPHRAM IS GETTING HARD. AND STICKING. THE VALVE WORKS ON A VACUME TO CLOSE THE DIAPHRAM TO STOP THE FLUSH PROCESS. WHEN YOU PULL ON THE FLUSH HANDLE YOU BREAK THE VACUME THAT FORM ON THE TOP OF THE DIAPHRAM WHICH ALLOWS THE WATER TO FLOW AS THE WATER FLOWS IT IS ALSO STARTING TO PULL A VACUME IN THE TOP OF THE DIAPHRAM TO CLOSE THE DIAPHRAM AND STOP THE FLUSH.
AS THE DIAPHRAM GET OLD AND WORN IT GETS HARD AND DOES NOT MOVE AS FREELY AND STICKS OPEN AND WON'T LET THE VACUME CLOSE THE DIAPHRAM AND THE URINAL WILL CONTINUE TO FLUSH. HOPE THIS ANSWERED YOU QUESTION

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/
