If you feel the strength of the flush is insufficient to remove the waste here is a simple guide to solving this problem. Due to water conservation programmes the fill level on many toilets is lower than before. Water conservation is great but if we aren’t getting a clean flush it can cause other problems i.e. waste not being washed completely into the external sewer. It will then harden and cause a build up point, for further waste to adhere to. It gets bigger until you experience back pressure and your toilet starts overflowing!
- Remove the lid from your cistern and locate the water level line (scribed on the rear of the cistern attached to the wall).
- If the water level is below the scribed water line, it means the amount of water in the cistern is insufficient to remove the waste.
- Increase the water level fill setting on the float valve. This allows more water into the cistern. This can be done either by hand or with a screwdriver.
- Flush the toilet, if the water is level with the line on the rear of the cistern all good. This should give a stronger and cleaner flush. Contact serviceteam to get your toilet repairs done in no time!
