Sewage backs into the shower when the toilet is flushed
Since you are in a basement, your plumbing may run into an ejector pit, which is a heavy duty type of sump pump pit that can grind up toilet paper and shoot it up into a main drain pipe at a higher level. That may be why the upstairs doesn't affect your plumbing.
Look around for a steel lid, about 20" diameter with two pipes coming out of it (usually 2 inches diameter). See if the circuit breaker is tripped. Sometimes, a light tap on the pipes near the lid can get the pump float to turn on if it gets stuck. Good luck. Read More At : Home...

Toilet handle sticks
It sounds like the nylon nut which holds the handle in place is too tight. Try loosening that nylon nut just a little to see if the handle moves easier. Sometimes if they are over-tightened, the handle will be stiff and hard to operate. Read More At : Home...
Water in tank continuously slowly flows out. No flapper but a central tower.
What ever functions as a flapper is defective and needs to be replaced. Read More At : Home...
I have a 10 year old Rialto model with a elongated bowl. When I flush the toilet the flapper will just not seat itself properly. The sides of the flapper don't grip the rectangular over flow snugly. That causes the the float part of the flapper to not seat itself., Water keeps leaking into the bowl. I've bought Four kohler flappers from Furgueson and 3 Korky flappers from Home Depot and nothing seems to work. Actually I have 2 rialto toilets and they both leak. I have 1 San Raefel toilet that works great. Had it for 10 years. Can you help, it's driving me crazy. [email protected] Phone 702 3634480 Las Vegas
Five year old Toto toilet has developed a very slow flush in the past few weeks. Plumber has found no clog in line and water from hose flows freely with no back up. We have two other similar Toto toilets that function well. What might be the problem?
This can happen if there is a hole (physical damage) inside the trap. Instead of the weight of the water during a flush causing it to drain right down suddenly and completely, it draws in air and loses the momentum. There could be a hole or a crack, which may be hard to find without removing the unit. Read More At : Ultimate One-Piece Toilet MS854114...
I just installed a Sloal Flushometer 110 (3.5gpf) onto a wall hung toilet (1.6gpf) with a 3/4" input pipe. It flushes, water goes thru and it will flush liquid waste but will not flush a piece of toilet paper. The paper disappears when the water is running but floats back out once it has stopped.
I have done the following:
1. Opened the Control Stop adjustment all the way.
2. Removed the Relief Valve.
3. Removed the complete internal parts that has the Relief Valve, flow ring and refill head. I suspect a low water pressure or not enough oomph in the line to clear the bowl.
I'm trying to do this on a limited budget.
Do you have any suggestions?
Thanks... Gary C.
