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)

American Standard Elongated toilet bowl water level slowly drops


The tank holding the proper amount of water is a good sign. The inside of the stool is like the GOOSE NECK under you sink. It always holds water. This may sound like a bit of a hassle to do but if all 3 toilets are identical, here is what you can try if you are a bit handy. Go to the hardware store and purchase 4 toilet wax rings with a plastic flange and a few sets of toilet floor flange bolts(they are cheap and you can always return if not used, as It is better to have xtra parts on hand). Turn off the water supply to the "Mystery Toilet". Leave the tank and everything connected to the stool. Flush the toilet and remove all excess water from the tank and bowl. This can be done with a shop vac, sponge or towel. Disconnect the water supply to the tank. Remove the bolts holding the stool to the floor and carefully remove toilet. Scrap off all the old wax from the floor flange and bottom of stool. Now go and repeat this proceedure to one of the toilets that is working properly. In other words Switch the "Mystery Toilet" with a "Working Toilet" and see how they react. If the working toilet does it in the same bathroom and the "Mystery Toilet" does not do it in the other bathroom then you probably have a VENTING PROBLEM. If the "Mysery Toilet" Does it in the other bathroom then you most likely have a Defective Toilet. This Job is best done by 2 people, as it can sometimes be challenging to center the new wax ring on the toilet flange. Reconnect to the floor and reconnect water supply to the tanks. DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN BOLTS to the floor flange as you may crack the toilet. All drain lines must be vented properly for water to flow. If you are curious check out drain venting on the internet. Also, sometimes a vent can become obstructed with debris, ice, bird nest, etc.. I would 1st check the vent on the roof visually and then have someone flush and listen. If you believe the vent is clear....Then do the toilet switch and go from there.....Hope this helps and Happy Holidays....Joe

I have a toto toilet , model MS604114CEFG , bought 2 years ago . Last night , when I flushed it , the water level in the toilet bowl did not come down . It stay high in the bowl . In the tank reservoi


If the toilet is the only fixture in the bathroom group that is having an issue, then there is a partial blockage in Strap of toilet or in drain pipe close to toilet. If other fixtures are showing sluggish drainage, then the main drainage line is clogged. If all is fine with tub lav shower etc., pull toilet from floor and carefully turn upside down, and look to see if anything is visable. if so remove it and reinstall with new seal(wax ring). Also, look into pipe and see if any water is standing in it. If water is standing in pipe, the drain line is clogged and must be rodded(snaked) out to cure problem

I have a 2yr old Kohler K4634 toilet. After flushing the water level drops about 1 inch in the bowl after the bowl filled. This causes a lower level in the bowl than is recommended. The main issue


Check to see if waster continues to run into the bowl after the plunger has returned to stop water flowing. If it is a slow leak then replace the flush washer on the stopper plunger.

My kolher k3497 will not hold water in the bowl. It drops way below the water level.\r\nWhen first flushed it fills correctly but if toilet is not used in four or five days the water level drops way below the water level. This is in my quest bathroom and is not used daily.


It depends on what you mean "not used daily".I am discounting any possible cracks.If you only see this after a month or so, the water just evaporates.If the water level in the bowl drops more often, the different pressure could cause it to exit the normal way. You could try opening and closing a few doors while watching if the water moves at all.You can have someone flush the 'regular' toilet while you watch the water in the bowl of your guest toilet. There should be no movement at all.If none of this gives any indications, I guess a plumber might know after inspecting it.

HELP! How do I fix a toilet that will not flush? I suspect the wax seal has not sealed properly due to tile floor being added and raising the level of the toilet. Could this be the problem?


I would have used low power jet wash with pipe cleaning attachment when the toilet was off, I know karcher do a good 1 but there are cheaper alternatives. The last toilet I fitted had a large rubber type seal between the wate outflow pipe and the out pipe of the toilet that fitted over the base of the pipe. I have never seen a wax type seal as you describe, admittedly I have not changed many toilets, but I would have changed the seals when the tiolet was lifted. Hope this helps

After flushing, water level in bowl fills and then slowly drops.


Check to be sure small tube is flowing inside the ovefow tube. This is the water that flushes the rim holes, and refills the bowl. If you don't have flow clean or replace the float valve.
