Not enough water in the toilet bowl

When the toilet is used and then flushed there is not really enough water to flush and you must wait till it is totally through running and flush again.

    toilet won't flush all the way...


    handles must be held down completely until flush process completes

  • tgosandygoo Jan 18, 2009

    I have the same problem. You must hold handle down. The flapper inside closes to quickly and doesn`t allow a proper full flush of tank. In-turn your bowl will not fill up because the amount of water left in the tank is significant, so the amount of water to fill tank again is limited. This causes little water to return to the bowl. I am considering change the mechanics in tank.

    When flushing the flapper closes to soon . Must hold handle down to complete the flush. My BK 37 has a yellow float on the chain the float seems to small to keep the flapper open for a complete flush. Adjusting the float does nothing.Would adding another float help or maybe replace the plastic flaper with a rubber flapper? HELP PLEASE JOEIII

How to adjust water level on Glacier Bay n2316. Never flushes totally in one flush.


Before you adjust the level, check the flapper. If it's worn, it may not be staying up long enough during the flush. You can replace the original, or buy a "dial a flush" flapper. (Made by Fluidmaster)

The flapper on these toilets is a water saver. The water saver flappers can be replaced with a standard flapper and I have found this will help considerably. The flapper is located in the tank at the center bottom. It is the part that flaps up and down when you pull the lever.

When I flush the tank only half empties and not enough flushing action is the result as well as the bowl does not adequately fill after the flush.


Hi, if you remove the cistern lid and flush the toilet, look at the float (back left) to see if this is rising freely when the water fills back up. Once the water has stopped filling, check the fill level lines on the large syphon in the middle of cistern. Your model of toilet has an eco flush which will be lowest line to save water, so not as much water will flush out. There is a long plastic screw on the float (back left) which you can turn to adjust the water level to the higher line on syphon (1.6 gallon flush) and turn it slowley till the water level reaches that mark. flush a couple of times to see it is filling back up to the set amount.

Some water saver toilets are very problematic about not having enough water to thoroughly flush. Here are 2 things to look for:

First, after toilet stops running completely, check the water level. Most tanks will have a "full" line marked inside. If the water level is low, your fill valve will need to be adjusted.

Second, if the water level is fine, your "flapper" valve (very bottom of tank) may not be opening all the way. Watch valve as you flush the toilet. It should come up far enough to allow total unobstructive flow of water. If it isn't, adjust chain length until it does. Make sure there is a little slack left.

If neither of these solves your problem, you may have a partial clog that will need to be gotten out with a drain snake that can be purchased at any hardeware store.

Noise of flush water


You have two issues inside of the toilet tank. The holding down the button is caused by your chain not being tight enough from the handle to the flapper. Take the slack out of that and replace the flapper. The second is that you need to replace the fill valve. This is what is making the noise when the tank is being refilled, and will have to be adjusted after it is installed.
Please remember to rate this.

Tank will not refill after you flush


okay depending on the type of toilet ball **** (i know its a funny word, but it's really what its called.) you have one the most standard type is the long wire with the big ball on the end. you need to adjust this ball **** so it goes lower test it out, flush your toilett and wait till the water drains then when its supposed to come back up push down on the ball **** and youll see the water will start to fill, so then adjust the little screw on the fill valve (the other side of the floater where its attached)

you may need to shut off your water supply and drain your tank depending on how skilled you are,

pretty simple work, if you have questions feel free to ask.
