    Update:

    I also found out the rim holes on the the 1-piece 2403 AS toilet were not 100% opened completely. When I looked carefully, I noticed opening @ the far end was smaller causing even weaker...

    BTW,

    I wonder if anyone can confirm the 2403 Cadet 3 1-piece Compact toilet does have a large water dispense hole under the front rim area (near circled red)?

    That way I don't have to purchase...

    The 1.28 gpf 2403 Cadet 3 Compact 1-piece toilet is able to flush solid ok, but not the lightweight toilet papers around the edge of the rim.


    So I compared the rim holes of...

    Thx for all the responses. I removed the in-tank toilet cleaner and the water level went up a bit--but still quite away from the level compared to if I manually added to the bowl water level.

    I'm having a similar flush issue also w/ liquid on a brand new Cadet 3 2403 FloWise one-piece compact toilet.

    I shortened the chain length to the flapper but still had issue w/ not flushing even...

    Any take? A wider diameter waxless gasket works better than the narrower universal gasket size with the 4" CI drain pipe in terms of flushing, or it won't matter?

    Thx I'm redoing the main electrical panel so would redo the grounding.


    A question:

    I'm thinking of possibly remodeling a few years later -- meaning I might need to move the water main entry...

    I am deciding to use the Fluidmaster waxless bowl gasket as it worked out ok last time.


    I wonder though, this product has a 'universal' version that has a narrower diameter (so it can fit 3/4"...
  10. Correct tank-to-bowl gasket for American Standard Cadet 2 toilet?

    Hi there,

    I had to replace the tank-to-bowl gasket for American Standard Cadet 2 toilet a week ago. I used the Fluidmaster 15-Piece Tank-to-Bowl Kit but it shows 1/8" gap between the tank and...

    Just wonder the reason that spacers don't really work well? Mainly w/ wax ring? Someone can explain?

    If I use Fluidmaster toilet gasket would that work out together ok w/ the spacers?

    The red horn is the Fluidmaster toilet bowel gasket.


    Do folks just caulk between the top of the flange and the spacer? Someone suggests screwing the spacer into the subfloor, although in my...

    The flange is below the level of the 1/4" cement board. Once 3/8" thick tile is set the flange be 1/2"- 5/8" below tile's top surface.


    I'd need a 1/2" or just 1/4" toilet flange spacer when...
  14. Need to replace this toilet flange (corner broken off)?

    Hi there,

    Have a tile guy come install tile in the bathroom. However when he was adjusting the cement board position, he used a sledge hammer to loosen up where the cement board met the CI toilet...

    Above ground soldering should be ok for soft copper tubing? I guess I need to tape/sleeve the copper tubing where it goes thru' the concrete box/slab.
  16. Someone says the copper pipe should not be in...

    Someone says the copper pipe should not be in touch with concrete as concrete eats copper.

    Is that true?

    So then I wonder where the copper pipe goes into the concrete box for the water meter...

    I get that I'd need an oversized 1" pipe. I suppose the statement in my water bill "Rate Code /Service Size : RES_T_B 3/4 inch" only means the 'minimum required' pipe size for the meter then.

    What does the 3/4" service size on the meter mean then?

    Here's something I don't understand. I checked my water bill and it states "Rate Code /Service Size : RES_T_B 3/4 inch".

    But the connecting old galvanized pipe (from the house) size to the meter...

    no one?

    Also, if I were to use soft copper tubing (1" I suppose), is it better to bend 2x45 degrees instead of 2x90 degrees when I need to bend it to go down 20"?

    Wonder the simplest way to...

    Been a while as I had some other things to work on.


    Coming back to this, anyone would have tips on the hole size on the concrete slab to be made (like 24" x 24" is big enough hole?) where the...

    The brass solder bushing permanently binds the pipe to the bushing. And this makes it so hard to make any changes. Why would someone make this kind of connection... (they think the p-trap pipe...
