Check the seal between the tank and the toilet.tighten it as necessary. (not to tight! you will crack the ceramic). Mkae sure the tank is square to the toilet. also the water inlet connector.

Diagram uberhaus dual flush toilet leaking from bolts securing tank to the base


If the tank base has a good seal and when attached properly it will not leak. If the tank base has a line fracture or is pitted, it will leak. Inspect the base and the port the base sits in for any defects. Overnighting bolts can sometime cause damage to the seat and the only way to fix that is to use a silicone seal from a tube and apply lightly around the base, put the tank in place, tighten moderately, and let it sit unused for 24 hours until the seal cures.

I have a problem with the water in the tank leaks past something, maybe the flush valve assembly and the tank has to refill about every 25 min. I got a new flush valve assembly and changed it and put blocks over the clamping bolts and tightened the nuts so water won't leak out and set the tank filled with water on my work bench to see if it would leak. The tank sat for 3 hours with no leaking. I mounted the tank to the toilet base and only tightened the nuts on the mounting bolts tight enough so water didn't leak out. I filled the tank with water and turn the water source off to try and simulate what I did on my work bench. And within 10 min the water leaked out to the point were the flush valve would fill the tank again. Its not leaking out the mounting bolts or the tank fill valve. I don't know what's going on. I'm at my wits end and don't know what to do. Is there anyone there that can try and diagnose the problem. Or is this a common problem with this style of toilet. Is the tank flexing just enough when the mounting bolts are tightened to warp the tank & flush valve assembly and let water go past? I have a American Standard Cadet 3 toilet with a 3" flush valve. The tank model 4021


Hi keithn60... I had the same problem one time with my toilet tank, the answer is to put some silicone on the seal washer between the take and bowl assembly and to use a level on the tank to tighten it just enough to be level and not leak. Please take time to rate me

Hi their, ive been called to a job to re establish the water to a toilet block. The plumber who was last their installed 4macorators and 4new f,o,v. He didnt turn the water on and diddnt do anything up tight,when i put the water on it all leaked like a siv!!! so i tightend everything up and wired the units but one of the f,o,v was leaking so shut off the service valve and left the macorator live.got paid and advised them to get new f,o,v,which thay replyed (no will just close that toilet) so left and today got call sayin the toilet bowl is filling up with water. But before i left i flushed every toilet 6times with clean water and everything was fine. i cant understand why the bowl is fillin up? their wasnt a blockage wen i left so think thay been touching it and now blameing me. It doesnt look like the toilets are linked together so cant se it being induced siphonage but didnt install them just powered them up and turned the water on pls can you help me many thanks danny

Caroma toilet 12years old, concealed cistern. Water leaking around base when toilet is flushed. water level maintained when not flushing, so the leak must be between the cistern and the bowl. Had a plumber in who said I needed to replace the whole toilet.(I've had it switched off) is ther any way of accessing the seals without breaking the toilet. Sorry it's not a concealed cistern. The cistern attaches to the base with ceramic covering all the pipe work between the cistern and the bowl. Cheers Louise


Fixing a leaky toilet is actually rather simple, requiring few tools and just a little time and effort. In looking at Caroma toilets on Google, they appear to be just a standard type of unit, and should present few if any problems for yourself or any handyman of modest skill. If it is leaking around the base of the toilet - where the toilet sits on the floor, the repair item is a simple wax seal. Here is a tutorial to effect this repair: Replace Toilet Wax Ring. The wax ring is very inexpensive, usually $5 to $10 USD. If the water is leaking from between the tank (cistern) and the toilet bowl, the job is even easier, as it does not require lifting and moving the entire toilet. A good tutorial for that repair is here: How to Replace Tank to Bowl Gasket . The gaskets, new nuts, bolts and rubber seals come in a kit and also cost only $5 to $10 USD. I am sorry to hear your Plumber insisted you buy an entire new toilet, but do remember he is in the business of making money!

Installed a new Kohler model K 4350-0 floor mounted elomgated toilet with no apparent problem. Installed a Sloan Regal flushometer with no apparent problem. I have no leaks, and it appears to flush normally, water is rinsing down from all around the insides of the toilet bowl. The whirlpool effect is going on in the toilet bowl as normal, but no debris is flushed down the toilet. The water level in the bowl never deviates. Once the flush stops you do hear water running in the toilet for a couples seconds.


2 possibilities. 1) The diaphragm in the Sloan is for a urinal. (1.0gal vs. 1.6gal);2) Not enough water. (stop partially closed, supply undersized)

The water in the tank continues to leak out and the tank has to continue to refill. I have replaced the flapper, I have taken the tank off the toilet and check gasket alignment. The tank does not leak water outside of the tank or toilet it leaks back into the toilet. Please tell me what to do next the toilet is only 18 months old.


There are only a coulple of places that the toilet could leak or, overflow and give you this problem. When you replaced the flapper valve, did it have an extra piece of rugger on it? Universal flappers have a round piece on them that are designed to fit over the overflow tube. If you flapper had this piece and you don't have need for it, you need to cut that out, if the flapper "hooks" to the overflow assembly. Leaving that piec on can contort the shape of the flapper and make it so it won't seal. If you are noticing constant movement(slight swirl) in the bowl, make sure the back tank is not constantly overflowing into overflow tube. If this is the case, your water level is too high. You will either need to adjust the water level and/or replace the fill valve. If you can hear the toilet running or leaking, push down on the flapper, if it stops, you have a problem with the flapper and/or the chain adjustment. When you install the flapper, you have ton make sure the chain is long enough to let the flapper fall and seal but, not so long that it can tangle or get between the the flapper and it's seal below it.
