Toilet and shower runs great for a year> just had a sink hooked up and now toilet and shower back-up> was the sink hooked up wrong? to a vent or wrong pipe>

Nah, that doesn't sound like the toilet or sink were hooked up wrong, your sewage tank is probably full, you can have it pumped out for $100 or so. They fill up every so often for w/e reason.

Toilet is running

The most common reason for a toilet to continue to run is a problem with either the flapper or the entire flush valve itself. The water is slowly draining so the fill valve keeps running.
The flapper is the least expensive and easiest solution, so start their. It's usually around $5. If that doesn't solve the problem, I would purchase a flush valve kit, around $20, and replace your flush valve.
*Note: If you have to replace the flush valve, you have to take your toilet apart. Start with the flapper.

My daughters TOTO toilet kepted running so she turned off the supply line before she went to bed. when she woke up the next moring and turned the water back on, now the tank won't refill. How do I know...

There could be several reasons why it won't refill. It could be the fill valve, which can be replaced with a standard fill valve located at any hardware store. The more likely reason is the stem inside the shut-off of the toilet has broken off inside the valve. This is very common when a valve is older and usually doesn't get shutoff. If this is the case, a new shut-off valve must be soldered on.

I have a american standard toilet mode 4112 that keeps running.....any suggestions on how to fix it?

The flapper ball may be contaminated and not sealing or the float level has changed and needs adjustment. You should be able to see if the overflow has water flowing into it continuously.

I have a saniflo toilet installed in my attic. The pipe runs accross under the roof and is connected to the sewerage pipe for the bathroom on the first floor. What toilet paper should I - use -2-ply or...

Any brand approved for septic should work well in the saniflow system, but the key is to use as little as reasonably possible and flush as you go. Big wads of any type will compromise the system.

Noisy system

Typically your pump should only operate when the float reaches its set point. Check and make sure that the flapper valve isn't leaking into the toilet. I think also there might be a condensate line draining into the pump from the A/C condenser if the unit is in the attic area of your home. You can check that by flowing the drain line from the condenser to where it either drains to the out side or to a drain system on the interior of your home... Good Luck! (Also stay safe when entering the hot attic this time of year----Let someone know what your doing and where your at for safety reasons!!!!)
