I'm contractor for the last 17 years and this is the first time I have problems with the toilet tank installation , I bought four toilets, three of them had a leaking tank I thought that the place that had bolt did not have enough pressure and I put more pressure every five minutes but the toilets kept on leaking, I took the bolts out and I put plumbing putty in the top and the bottom and installed it again but it kept on leaking then i removed the putty and i put liquid teflon on the bolts and finally the leaking stoped.

If your toilet is not moving waste all the way to the septic, then there may be a blockage in the waste line or it may not be plumbed correctly. There is no reason why you should not be able to make a full flush on septic. I have live on septic for many years and it should flush as well as living in the city. Is your water supply nice and strong? This sound like a gravity issue with the waste line or a blockage, If you can get under your house and see how the waste line is run, that would be helpful, it should be aimed straight down underneath your toilet and never running uphill at any point on the way to the septic tank. Also is there a vent in the waste line at the proper distance. If not, that could also be the issue. Good luck. P.s. does your septic tank need pumped out?

Check the chain the goes between the handle and the flapper.
It should not be taught. If it is it will not permit the flapper to seat
properly and water will leak out. Adjust the chain length so the flapper is seated and there is just a little slack in the chain.

The American Standard Cadet 3 flowise one piece toilet uses a flapper valve with a soft nylon washer to seal against the water outlet.
Over time this nylon washer develops 'puckers' causing water to seep between the nylon washer and the seat of the flapper. This seepage causes the water level in the tank to drop to a point where the water inlet valve opens to replace the lost water in the tank.
There are two ways to correct this problem:
1. Replace the soft nylon washer on the flapper, or
2. Replace the entire flapper valve.
Hope this solution helps.

try putting some food coloring in it to see if it's leaking anywhere. the coloring will help you identify where it's leaking

Put your hand around the back of the seat and you will feel the nuts. Tighten them by simply turning them.

You have something in the blow stopping the waste from going down.

You need to replace the tank to bowl nuts, washers, and gaskets as well as the flush valve gasket. One word of caution. When installing the new bolts to hold the tank in, place a rubber gasket under the washer inside the tank, and also one on each bolt under the washer underneath the tank. If you omit the one under the tank you may end up cracking the tank when you tighten it down.

You would have to determine what the stain is before an accurate answer on how to deal with it. Can you add a picture?

Hi,
To see where the water is going, place some red cake dye in the tank and see where the water turns red....this will show you exactly what is happening and where the water is going...

replace flapper with American Standard flapper.

It could be a bad seat around the flapper or the flapper itself. Replace flapper with one designed for the Cadet. Check water level and see it doesn't flow above the overflow tube. if it is above the tube lower the float ball by turning the screw at top of ball.

American... | Answered on Nov 11, 2013


Turn knob on top of float ball to increase ball height which will increase water column. Up to 1" of overflow tube.

American... | Answered on Nov 11, 2013


Raise height of water by raising float valve. It has a twist knob at top of ball to raise and lower ball. Column should be about 1 inch below overflow tube.

Replace flapper. Use American Standard flapper for your unit.

One inch is exactly 2.54 cm, so if you're 5 ft 9 in then you're about 175 cm.
