There are two things to worry about when using a toilet: a blockage and a leak. Earlier on our website, we talked about how to solve the problem of a clogged toilet. Today, we are going to help you solve the problem of a leaking toilet.
Toilet water leakage has a few big reasons, solve toilet water leakage we must first find the cause of leakage, the remedy for the case. Some manufacturers blindly reduce the production cost and choose inferior materials to cause the inlet valve outlet and inlet pipe itself to crack when injection molding, leading to the failure of sealing. The water in the water tank flows into the toilet through the drainage valve overflow pipe, causing “long flowing water”.
Excessive pursuit of miniaturization of water tank accessories, resulting in insufficient buoyancy of the floating ball (or floating bucket), when the water submerged floating ball (or floating bucket), still can not make the inlet valve closed, so that the water constantly flowing into the water tank, eventually from the overflow pipe into the toilet caused water leakage. This phenomenon is especially obvious when the tap water pressure is high.
Improper design, so that the water tank accessories in the action of interference, resulting in water leakage. For example, when the water tank is released, the backwardness of the float ball and the float club will affect the normal reset of the flap and cause water leakage. In addition, the float club is too long and the float ball is too large, causing friction with the wall of the water tank, affecting the free rise and fall of the float ball, leading to seal failure and water leakage.
The connection of the drainage valve sealing is not strict, non-one-time forming of the drainage valve because of the connection sealing is not strict, under the action of water pressure, water from the interface clearance through the overflow pipe into the toilet, causing water leakage. Can freely change the height of the lifting type water inlet valve, if the sealing ring and the pipe wall is not closely matched, will often appear water leakage.
What are the solutions for the above leakage causes? A. Open the water tank and see that the water tank is full and the water is flowing out of an overflow pipe, it means that the water intake group is broken. If what you hear is that the water tank is filled without any reason, it means that the water outlet group is broken and needs to be replaced
B. If the internal parts of the water tank are aging, the parts should be replaced in time c. If the connection between the toilet and the drain pipe is leaking, the toilet should be reinstalled and the sealant should be reapplied. If there is a leak or crack in the toilet, it needs to be replaced. If it doesn’t take long for these problems to occur, it’s the manufacturer’s home, recommend a complaint.
Here are a few tips for fixing a leaky toilet:
When you pull the handle on the tank to flush the toilet, the starting lever in the tank will be lifted. This lever will pull up the steel rope, causing it to lift the ball plug or rubber cap at the bottom of the tank. If the opening of the flusher valve is unobtrussed, the water in the tank will flow through the raised ball plug and into the tank below. The water level of the barrel will be higher than that of the elbow.
When water is gushing out of the tank, the float ball on the surface of the tank will descend and pull the float arm downward, thus raising the valve plunger of the float ball valve device and allowing the water to flow back into the tank. The water always flows downwards, so the water in the tank pushes the water in the tank into the drainpipe, which in turn siphons and takes everything out of the tank. When all the water in the tank has gone, the air is sucked into the elbow and siphoning stops. At the same time, the tank plug will fall back into place, closing the opening of the flushometer.
The float will rise as the water level in the tank rises until the float arm is high enough to press the valve plunger into the float valve and close the incoming flow. If the water cannot be turned off, excess water will flow down the overflow pipe into the tank to prevent the tank from overflowing. If water continues to flow from the tank into the tank and into the drain, the treatment steps are as follows:
Step 1: Lift the arm upward. If the water stops flowing, the problem is that the float cannot be raised high enough to press the valve plunger into the float valve. One reason could be friction between the float ball and the side wall of the tank. In this case, bend the arm slightly to move the float ball away from the side wall of the tank.
Step 2: If the float does not touch the tank, hold on to the float arm and turn the float counterclockwise to remove it from the end of the float arm. Then shake the float ball to see if there is water, because the weight of the water will prevent the float ball from rising normally. If there is water in the float ball, please throw the water out, and then reinstall the float ball on the float arm. If the float is damaged or corroded, replace it with a new one. If there is no water in the float, return the float to its original position and then gently bend the float bar so that it is low enough for the float to prevent new water from entering the tank.
Step 3: If none of the above steps solve the problem, check the water tank plug at the flusher seat. Chemical residue in the water may cause the plug to fail to move into place, or the plug itself may have rotted. Water will seep from the opening of the flusher into the tank below. Close the shutoff valve on the toilet bowl and flush the water to empty the tank. You can now check the tank plug for signs of wear and install a new plug if necessary. If the problem is caused by chemical residue that accumulates at the opening of the flusher, remove the residue with some emery cloth, wire brush, or even a knife dipped or not in water.
Step 4: If there is still too much water flowing through the toilet, it could be that the guide or lifting rope of the tank stopper is not aligned or has been bent. Make sure the guide is in the correct position and the rope is directly above the opening of the flushing valve. Turn the guide until the tank stopper falls vertically into the opening. If the lifting rope is bent, try to bend it back into the correct position or replace it with a new one. Make sure there is no friction between the starting lever and anything and that the lifting cable is not drilled into the wrong hole in the lever. Both of these situations will cause the tank stopper to fall at an Angle and not be able to plug the opening.
