What would cause a toilet to continuously keep filling the bowl?
Your flush valve is probably overflowing due to a bad fill valve, or the float is set too high. Open up your tank and look inside to see what happens when you flush.
What would cause the toilet to stop filling up normally without turning the water valve off then back on again?
Your question is actually not very clear. Do you mean that the filling wont stop even the tanks is full and overflow out of the tank? IF that the case please do check the float because it is either the float is jammed or it is punctured. If what youre asking is that if the float is ok but the water wont stop from flowing into the toilet bowl please do check the diaphragm of…
Why Would a low-water consumption toilet overflow instead of filling to the rim and then stopping- can it be intentionally clogged?
I would intentionally overflow a public toilet by taking the lid off the back, then taking out the thing that covers the hole in the bottom. Then clog the toilet and just wait. The toilet will just flush and flush and flush and flush until it overflows. And then it will keep flushing. You could flood the entire bathroom with no one even knowing!
It is probably not flushing, just the tank filling. The flapper in the bottom of the tank is not sealing completely letting water seep into the bowl. When it enough drains out, the tank will refill. Just replace the flapper. Most are held on by two prongs on either side of the overflow tube. A new one is about $3
because it might be clogged Water level in your toilet bowl is first determined by the water level in your reserve tank on back of stool. Check there first to see if it is filling properly. Second reason, maybe that you have a obstruction in you main line, however slight it will cause gravity to take control.
Sounds like the washing machine discharge is fitted to the main drain in the wrong place and it's discharge is filling your toilet. It's possible there may be something of a blockage just after the toilet, causing a backup. I would try to snake the the pipe from toilet out. You may even have to remove the toilet from the floor and do it there if there is no access underneath (like a basement or…
It is called Galvanic shocks. If you have a gray filling, which contains some metal, it can cause a shock when you put another piece of metal on it. This doesn't happen when you have white fillings. Another possibility is that you filling is due to be changed. The best thing would be to see your dentist to check it.
My g/f has this happen to her regularly and, it was only when I asked that she said she usually flushes once to get the flush working and then immediately after to make certain the toilet flushes everything away. She said that if a toilet has good pressure, it will often splash out when she flushes.
What would cause a downstairs toilet to start running when an upstairs toilet is flushed both toilets keep running until a faucet or the washing machine is turned on?
the most likely answer to this question is a faulty washer, the reason it keeps running until the washing machine is turned on is cause the pressure is being withdrawn from the toilet. replace the washers to the toilets and monitor. if this fails you may have to consider replacing all the mechinisims inside
Putting toilet water into the tub with a cup. The real answer is Water seeks its own level and when a soil line (waste) is blocked water will find the lowest point to flow into Thus a toilet is above the tub and a basin is above the toilet. To prove allow water to flow in the basin and it should also flow into the tub
