Prior to starting work, you should have a basic knowledge of how toilet flush works. The purpose of the tank is to keep water until the toilet is flushed. The water flows down from the tank through the hole in the bottom to empty the bowl, running the waste into the sewerage. Major reservoir components, flush and fill valves, must function flawlessly for trouble-free toilet flushing. The fill valve (aka. a ball mechanism) allows water filling to a certain level. The filling valve is found left of the reservoir and has 4 basic mechanism types:
Regardless of structure and building material, the purpose of valves is to automatically open the flapper while the water in the tank lowers during the flushing of a toilet. Depending on the principles of operation, ball and float cup valves alter positions with the water movement in the reservoir. The float type filling valve functions by reading the pressure in the reservoir.
Modern filling devices come in different shapes. Previous models are usually called ball valves; some may use the word in relation to any flapper, but actually, it describes the plunge and diaphragm types; they have a common design feature which is a mechanism that controls the valve through a floating arm. Although the mechanism is no longer used in newer toilets, it can still be encountered. The water flow adjustment is made moving a floating arm to the desired position to alter the level at which the mechanism stops the supply. It is important to adjust correctly in order to avoid a toilet overflow and damage to the bathroom floor. The adjusting procedure is the matter of setting the exact level at which the mechanism prevents further water flow. Such a mechanism is subject to many problems, so it is recommended to replace it with a floating cup filling device of a modern design.
The flush valve found inside a reservoir is the main component of a toilet. The device is connected to the lower part of the reservoir. A float mechanism retains water in the reservoir to the point a handle is triggered to remove the waste. While the handle is engaged, the flapper is lifted by a chain or lift cable, allowing for a flush. The flapper closes during the refill if the reservoir is empty. The device features overflow protection in the form of a tube. The role of the fill tube is to prevent the tank overflow during the refill step by draining excessive water into the toilet bowl. A refill tube at the top of the overflow tube allows the tank to fill with water until the water level is restored.
A constantly running toilet is among the most common problems that people encounter. The fix, however, is relatively easy. The problem occurs either because the flapper does not connect properly with the flush valve or because the water level in the tank is too high due to a faulty fill valve. In the second case, water leaks through the top of the overflow tube and sinks into the tank. Checking the water level is the first step in troubleshooting the problem. If the water level is not the cause of a running toilet, a plumber will proceed with the next step, which is to adjust or replace the flapper.
A loose handle repair usually involves one of the following:
While most toilet flush problems are associated with the tank, water seeping around the base onto the bathroom floor is also a reason to call a plumber for toilet repairs. Yes, a small amount of condensation is normal, but a puddle of water on the floor indicates a real problem. In most cases, the plumber will remove the toilet as it is a necessary step for replacing the ring, which creates a seal at the base of the toilet to the drain hole.
