SOURCE: have to flush 2 or 3 times to empty toilet bowl

hello, this is a standard toilet you will need to inspect the flapper that is the rubber flap that holds the water up in the tank it works when you pull the lever it pulls the chain upward and lets the water flow if this flapper is old it may not stay up long enough for the water to flow. open the tank top and flush the toilet see if this flapper is staying up long enough and giving the tank enough time to empty if not change this rubber flapper its inexpensive part.
if this is not the reason then you need to adjust your water filler valve there should be a small screw on top of the pivoting float arm
if you have to adjust it for the water limit line inside the tank this will be the proper amount of water needed to flush once completely

also check that the chain lenth on the pull lever is not pulling the flapper down quicker than its supposed to,

try this let me know your results
hope it helps

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: American Standard Champion toilet keeps running

Readjust the float. the longer it is the more leverage the fill water will have on it. good luck. The fill valve does come apart and cleaned if there is debri in it. Turn the water off first:)

You probably have excessive buildup on the pipe walls that have restricted the flow to the point of needing that second flush - or somebody flushed a plastic bag there and now it is acting like a flapper. This will also be evidenced by occasional flooding at that commode. There's only 2 solutions as I se4e it.; scrape the pipe walls ( rooter with a scraping head ) or replace the pipe for the build up, or rooter out the pipe to try to extract that blasted bag.
Good luck!!

Bought low flow 1.6 litre American standard toilet problem I am having is it makes this clinging noise constantly and when taking off the tank lid you can see that is filling up a slight amount


Serval reasons: (1) noise from handle chain being metal-consider switching to lighter plastic type. (2) The rubber flap which lifts up when handle is pushed down and seals "when handle is let go" to allow water to fill in take maybe worn to the point of needing replacement-Go to any Lowe's/HomeDepot and they will walk you through replacement process of just removing old one and putting ends in place over hooks to install new one. Takes me 1 minute to do. (3) Adjust the water cut-off valve that supplies water to tank so it can feel up rapidly by just turning the value. If value is hard to turn try using some oil or WD-40 on it. Remember that one way opens to allow quicker fill up and better flush and other way just turns water to toilet off. If now of these things work then just give me a yell and I can advise further.
