Porcher Veneto toilet repairs
From Gordon by email:
I am trying to replace the piston assembly on a Porcher Veneto.
I have the replacement piece but I cant figure out how to get the old
piece out. If you look at the diagram at
I have parts 4 & 5 removed, but I cant seem to get part "6" unscrewed
from the tank housing. It's loose but will not come out? There is
obviously a nut on the other side but I cant get it free. How do I
unscrew this bugger? Is there a tool I am missing? Do I have to remove
the whole tank to get this out? I have the replacement pieces and it
looks like there is a nut (unnumbered but is on the diagram) and a
Yeesh, I am longing for the old flapper days. Did I get a lemon in this
porcher it has only been in for less than a year....
Obliged for your help!
veneto- Getting rid of mine-
I have 4 of these toilets, they are nothing but costly with continuous maintenence. the piston just pulls off once you ave removed the upper portion, I have to replace this once every 6 months at a cost of $30 each, after 3 years i now must replace all the valve membranes at a cost of $18 each. The problem is the silicone gaskets which fail to seal after a while. I am planning on replacing all of them. However thet no longer sell just the gaskets. I figure I have already bought a new toilet with all the replacement parts. Additionally the lost water from the run through when the gaskets fail drives me nuts.
Porcher Veneto Parts That Wear Out
I got the three Porcher Veneto toilets in my house because of the fine European look, not knowing that the 2 parts that normally wear out are not easily obtained in this country, yet widely available in Europe, made by GroheDal. The shut off membrane (GROHE 4375800M), also called "membrane assembly 83086.00.000" or "diaphragm gasket" normally lasts up to 5 years and can be easily replaced by unscrewing the large white knob of the supply tower; the discharge piston (GROHE 43544000), also called "piston assembly 83084.00.000" or "flush valve" lasts longer, but is a source of water leakage due to the deteriorated silicone seal. Both can be obtained at a fair price from Guillen Enterprises in Miami, FL, and the online service is very professional. Once you have a supply of these two parts in the house, your Veneto toilet will continue to function well while adding an elegant esthetic touch to your residence.

porcher veneto 1 toilet parts
It seems that the flush valve assembly on my porcher veneto 1 toilet isn't working. The tank drains constantly and sometime there's a vibrating sound coming from the piston. I called Porcher and they can only sell me the piston not the entire valve assembly. I'd like to buy the whole thing so that I know the problem gets fixed. Any suggestions on where I could find a replacement full valve assembly or advice on my problem? Thanks in advance for the help!
