How many liters of water will go out the drain if you flush the toilet bowl?
Different brands and models of toilets use different amounts of water per flush.
* In the US approximately 40% of all domestic water consumed is flushed down the toilet. * an old-style single flush toilet can use up to 5.5 gallons (20 liters) of water in one flush, whereas more water efficient dual flush toilets average less than 1 gallon (4 liters) * replacing a traditional single flush toilet with a water efficient dual flush toilet saves about 21 gallons (80 liters) per person per day.
The toilet itself is plugged or the pipe from the toilet to the drain is plugged. It may be that the tub and sink have their own drain pipe that may connect to the main away from the toilet drain. Plunge the toilet or sometimes if you fill a 5 gallon bucket with water and pour it into the toilet as fast as it will take it, that will flush out the line. It is…
Why would the water drain from the tank but not flush or suck the water down through the toilet bowl when you flush?
Do the rest of the fixtures in the bathroom drain well? If they do not drain well, my guess would be the venting of the plumbing system. If all of the other fixtures in the bathroom drain well, then there is probably something in the trapway of the toilet. Assuming it is just the toilet that is having problems, then a closet auger might do the trick. Hope it helps.
Home toilets do not use "suction power" to flush. The inertia of the water falling from the tank when you flush pushes water through the trap and down the drain. If there is any significant amount of blockage in the drain, the water will not be able to move at enough velocity to get past the trap. In other words, if the drain is blocked, water can't flow fast enough to flush. You'll need to…
When you flush the toilet fills with water to the top then gushes down but water comes up in the sink and bathtub what causes this?
Recently had a dishwasher installed and now have an upstairs toilet that doesn't want to flush properly a lot of the time the water goes round and round but not down?
In the base of the toilet, the drain is shaped like an upside down U. When you flush, the water in the bowl rises. Water seeks it own level and when it is higher than the top of the upside down U, it goes over the top and causes a suction or syphon that draws the rest of the water in the bowl after it. until it sucks air and breaks the syphon.
Are there any problems with putting coffee grounds down the sink or garbage disposal or toilet and which is preferable?
Why has the water from bath sink fill toilet but toilet has no pressure to flush properly water drains out but does not flush?
Up along the rim of the toilet there are little holes that pour the water out when the toilet is flushed. Check the holes, they get clogged from build up over the years... Use a paper clip to clean them out.... A dirty job but could save you some $ replacing a toilet. You can check to see if that's the problem by filling a bucket with water and pouring it into the toilet. If…
Actually No, a Goldfish cannot swim back up the toilet. The construction of the trap (the "hole" in the bottom of the fixture) prevents water from backing up into the toilet (see links for a picture). the only way this might be possible is if the toilet is clogged. (the water can't go down the drain and overflows)
The best thing would be to take the toilet loose and clean it out so the sand didn't go down the drain. If you don't want to do that, clean out as much as you can by hand or use a wet/dry vac to suck out what is in the trap of the toilet and then run a snake in it to break up the plug and flush repeatedly. Once it is opened up, fill…
