What would cause all of your toilet tanks to stop filling at the same time?
if you have water to the rest of the house and its the toilets only then either someone has turned off the valves under the toilets or the fill valves have both failed at the same time. [not very likely!!] cant be much of anything else.
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… Read More
Defective refill device. Replace or adjust. Also check the flapper to make sure it is sealing properly.
In a toilet tank or water reservior to regulate filling.
Iron in the water would cause rusty stains in the toilet.
A broken seal would cause dirty water to jettison from a toilet. A plumber can fix it.
Regular Toilet water (meaning no contaminats) will NOT cause blindness.
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.
Are all toilet tanks standard or can you replace the original tank mfg Gerber with another mfg American for example?
You should be able to take the old tank off and mesure the distance of the mounting bolt holes and mesure the diamiter of the water hole then go to home depot and mesure some of the tanks they have. I diagree with the previous answer. By the way, it's spelled: measure. Anyway, if you have a 1.6 gallon toilet tank, you should replace it with the same brand. Different manufacturers tanks will NOT work… Read More
The downstairs toilet is not properly vented and the flow from the one upstairs creates a vacuum in the waste line.
Water would drain from the toilet bowl if there is a crack in the lower part of the toilet. You would possible see water or signs of damp around the base. There is unfortunately no 'fix' for a crack in a porcelain bowl. If this is the cause then you need anew toilet.
No it would cause serious plumbing problems.
Why would you want to know that?HUH?!
Usually, the wax seal has to be replaced. There is a possibility your toliet has a crack, but I would pull the toilet and replace the wax seal.
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!
Make sure your main water is turned on by turning on another sink or bath and if it is then turn your toilet valve off and on a couple times and see if any water comes out in your tank. If still no water is filling the tank then shut off the valve and take the supply tube off the valve and turn the valve on slowly to see if you have any water comming… Read More
You probably need to replace the wax ring and possibly tighten the two bolts that hold the toilet to the floor.
My toilet is doing the same thing this morning. We had a big rain last night. Could this be part of the cause?
Which part, the tank or the bowl? If it's the tank, you have a problem with a restriction between the tank and the bowl. If it's the bowl, you have an obstruction in either the neck of the toilet or the drain pipe below the toilet.
What would cause a basement toilet to overflow clear water on its own and what do you need to check?
That would be your flush valve in the tank
Maggots are fly larve if flys are getting under your toilet you should put silcone caulk around the base. if flys cant get under the toilet then they cant lay their eggs. I would lift the toilet kill the maggots replace the wax ring tighten the toilet bolts really tight then caulk
Someone hooked up the hot water supply to the toilet instead of the cold water supply- or your water heater is back drawing hot water through to the toilet from a cold water inlet (supply)
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
There would be no problem. That's what fuel tanks are for, As long as the tank was designed and built for the gas (or other fuel) with which you are filling it. For instance, you would not want to try to fill a gasoline tank with liquid natural gas.
there is a blockage either in supply pipe or refill valve.
That would be a bad fuel pump in that tank
you need a hammer arrester. They sell a nifty hammer arrester that will fit on the pipe supplying the toilet without having to use a torch. fairly cheap ($12) and easy to install. A loose washer in the toilet shut off valve can cause this problem.
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.
Last I checked sports authority does not fill HPA tanks. If you are looking to get a tank filled though I would not suggest going to sports authority unless it is your only option. I used to work at one and the employees there really do not know what they are doing when filling tanks and you would be fortunate to get a half full tank when you walked out.
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… Read More
sounds like the wax ring did not take or the flange is not set right
Back syphonage or a defective flapper / tank bulb
not eating healthy and possibly not getting out as much as you should be (:
In world war one all tanks upgraded to muffler bearing. The exhausted would leak and cause the engine to lose compresion and flood muffler bearings stop that
You would need to use a container of water like a 5 gallon bucket and pour it into the toilet. As you pour it in, the excess water will cause the toilet to drain.
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.
Yes because the tail would weigh you down and it would become very difficult to use the toilet.
The original water closet was perfected by an English chap named Thomas Crapper and the first ones had pretty massive tanks. The flush was expected to sink a pile of apples floating in the bowl. The noise of a large tank filling would have been a nuisance, so it was covered. Also, nothing worse than trying to fish a dead mouse or rat from a tank; tanks are best covered.
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.
Fluctuations in city water pressure. Sometimes this is a bad toilet ballcock. Test by turning water off to one toilet at a time to see if it stops.
If it's just the no. 2, most likely cause would be a bad fuel injector (for EFI engines).
What would cause large air bubbles in a downstairs toilet when the upstairs washing machine is draining?
The pipes are croosed or conected to the hose.GET A PLUMBER!
look in the water tank and see if the water in there is brown too...it might be rust in the pipes
Normally, alcohol will mix with gasoline. Before companies added alcohol to gasoline, people had a problem with water in the gasoline. Water would accumulate in the bottom of gas tanks. It would cause gas tanks to rust out. Alcohol mixes with both water and gasoline. As a result water now mixes with the alcohol mixed with the gasoline. Gas tanks no longer rust out.
the reason why the toilet makes noise when you turn water on is because all the water lines are conected so when you turn on water the toilet gets affected and the water that goes down a drain goes to the water pipe.
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
Your toilet waste should not be going anywhere near your sump pump ! Toilet waste is supposed to go down a sewer pipe to the street sewer or to your septic tank. No sump pump is involved unless you had a broken toilet pipe and you would definitely smell that.
there is a check valve in the oil system that is stuck open over filling the oil tank will cause the dipstick to blow out of oiltank
Yes. If the sump pump is used as a sewage lift station, objects going into the toilet (especially forign objects) can cause the pump to clogg. These pumps are usually referred to as sewage ejector pumps. If the sump pump is only used for stormwater runoff, and foundation drains, then no, the toilet is a separate system and would not affect it. These are referred to as sump pumps. Except in unusual circumstances, such as… Read More
