I tried loosening the chain, and then the airpiston thing would not move at all, and would not flush whatsoever. So i tried shortening the chain connection and the situation got better. I went from (-2 links) to (-4 links) and really seems to clear up the issue.

Smart-a$$ answer is to find an old 3 gallon pot in a salvage place. Best answer is to fiddle with the chain that goes from the handle to the flush flapper and see if adjusting its length makes a difference. If it's too short it might result in letting the flapper closing too soon and allowing your deposit to remain.

SOURCE: Toilet won't shut off

Does it leak from the overflow? If so then the washer at the top of the Fluidmaster needs to be replaced. If it is not going over the overflow then you will need to replace the flapper on the flush valve.

You are probably correct, the water level needs to be raised. There are many different toilet tank systems, but all have some way to control the water level in the tank. Let me know if you need help figuring it out...

P.S. You'll have to take the lid off the tank, first...pardon me if that is too obvious

low water in the bowl is only caused by the float being to high! the gurgles is Usually because of air coming back up through the pipe, check your vent pipe that come out the roof. this will help the draining.

Kohler cimarron very noisy when flushed


You probably have one of the newer Cimarron-series toilets that feature what Kohler calls "AquaPiston" technology. These gadgets use the water pressure in your supply lines to pressurize a charge of flush water in the tank, causing the flush water to rush into the bowl at high pressure and velocity. Many Cimarron-series toilets use only 1.28 gpf (gallons per flush), compared to the current industry standard of 1.6 gpf for conventional gravity-flush units. Reducing the gpf rating by 20% requires pressurizing the water in the tank, and the release of pressurized water makes a lot of noise. I'm afraid your toilet will always be noisier than what you may be used to.

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.

Why wont my have a cimarron k3489 toilet fully flush? the water empties from the tank but the water from the bowl does not go down.


That's an interesting one! Does the flush valve close properly so the tank can refill? Does the float valve allow the tank to refill fully, to near the top of the overflow? That can be adjusted, if it doesn't.

Check fhe flush valve - you may have an obstruction under it. Also check the water port from the bowl side - feel up inside the port for obstructions or buildup of hard water deposits.

WASH YOUR HANDS THOROUGHLY afterwards.

Tank empties on flush but bowl doesn't empty. eventually only water very slowly empties from bowl. Brand new


Unless there is some packing material or protective film that you failed to remove it is more likely to be a problem with your home drainage system than the toilet itself.
It could be debris from removal of the previous toilet, a wad of toilet paper or other stuff partly blocking a pipe.
Before doing anything else get outside and open up the man-hole covers. Throw a bucket full of water down and see how quickly it drains away. - if it runs well then the problem is likely to be a blockage somewhere between the toilet and the drain cover.
I would suggest uninstalling the toilet bowl to make access easier then rodding it through with drain rods - you can usually hire these quite cheaply but they are only about £15 - £20 to buy a set in the UK.

BRand new elongated Cimarron shoots water out of bowl durng flush


Is the fill line in the tank loose? Does it just shoot water into the tank itself? I had this issue until I realized the while fill tube is supposed to be pushed into the black cylinder/small plastic tube in the middle of the stopper assembly. After i pushed the line into the tube, the bowl would always only fill a little bit. Now it fills almost a 3rd of the way up the bowl and doesn't bubble during flushes.

The bowl does not fill up completely with enough water to flush everything down. This problem just started.


Check the float in your tank and watch it and make sure it is not hitting the sides of the tank to not allow it to fill up.

Master bath toilet replaced with a Cimmeron class 6 confort height toilet. The master bath toilet backs up to the hall bath toilet - same wall. The hall toilet is very old. When the old toilet is flushed,...


Kohler is correct. The most likely cause of this problem is an obstruction in the common vent stack that both toilets share. When you flush the old toilet it need more air to flush and will get it from the easiest source (your new water saver toilet). First adjust the float level in the old toilet so it won't use as much water or just stick a brick in the tank to take up space.Second, run a snake down the vent stack from the roof to check for obstructions. Birds will sometimes nest in there.
