    I've experienced the same thing on one of two Aquia III's on rare occasions in the past year. My best guess is it's caused by my washer discharge that is within 5 ft. There's so little water in the...

    Don't go painting without written permission from your landlord. If a tenant of mine did that, I'd charge a fee for replacing the toilet due to an unauthorized repair.
  3. Soap Bubbles in Dalton when Washer is emptying

    I recently installed new Dalton ADA Height toilets in a rental unit. The one on the 1st floor is next to the laundry room. The tenant claims soap bubbles appear in the bowl after running the...

    I installed two Aquia III's over a year ago after ditching old Mansfield 3.5GPFs that clogged up at least once per week. Your reference to "Large" was my concern at the time as well. However, I was...

    Thanks for the feedback.

    I'd rather pay once for "the good stuff" than have to deal with repeated issues and replacements. The only reason this 15 yr old faucet failed was some abuse by a tenant....
  6. Are there any decent Solid Brass Kitchen faucets left?

    I just had to replace a kitchen faucet at a rental property. It was an 15yr old Delta faucet that started to leak.

    My trip to the big box stores offered nothing but plastic faucets. It was late...

    Toilet Footprint Info?

    I just installed two ADA Elongated Dalton toilets in a rental unit where the job was a bit bigger than expected.

    The flooring in both bathrooms was standard vinyl tile and whoever tiled the...

    I installed 2 of these in my home last year. The small water spot hasn't been much of an issue but to be honest, it depends on the ordinance being dropped. If we're talking about cluster bombs,...

    All newer toilets have this to allow for air flow when you flush the toilet. The tank has to drain very quickly and must be able to breath.

    You don't need to be a plumber to drill holes for the Toto Aquia install. Just make sure you get the correct size bits in new condition. I used standard masonry bits with an electric drill and got...

    That explains the workout I got drilling through the ceramic tiles, even after buying new carbide tip bits, they lasted only a couple of holes. I've also seen posts here that recommend using a...

    What's under the Ceramic Tile Floor? Is it on a concrete slab? If so, yes, you need the anchors and larger hole for the bolts to bite into and hold. If over the usual concrete backer and wood...

    If it is ONLY weed control and contains no fertilizer, yes. Otherwise, choose a Weed Control product only.

    I thought I saw the Vigoro in Spring with the crabgrass preventer available. As for weed control, use the Weedbgone with a hose end sprayer. You only have to do this once in May before it gets too...

    I've had a couple of the Aquia III's that you are considering for several months. The amount of pressure needed for the push button is very light, probably less or equal to what you need to push...

    Does the water supply line come out of the wall? if so, how high off the finished floor. The drawings in the Total installation guide show there should be enough clearance if it's no more than 6...

    I never realized that, makes sense. I guess I owe former tenants an apology. I had to drain a water heater and did not have a long hose so I used a bucket, dumping the hot water in the toilet of a...

    I'm not so sure about putting a Toto Dual Flush on a 12" rough-in at a corner. The entire back of the bowl is open and bound to become a collection point for unwanted stuff since tank isn't designed...
  19. Check Flush Valve setting

    Misantartica

    I have 2 of the Aquia III's and have no flush issues at all. You may have a setting issue with the flush tower.

    I still have the original install instructions scanned and...
  20. Not so sure about this forum

    Terry,

    I used your site to make a purchase decision and resolve some install questions. I admit to already having a prejudice against the American Std brand after having bad luck with them...

    Don't forget about the Borrowed Tool rule.

    If you borrow it, the chances it will break are proportional to the cost of the tool, causing you to have to buy Two. One to replace the borrowed item...
  22. Short Push Rods?

    I'm surprised by the photo of the short push rods. I bought 2 of the Aquia III's and both came with much longer rods.

    Is there a QC problem at Toto or did they start running low on stock and...

    Try #1 flush without the tank lid

    The problem could be the length of the pushrod (or whatever the official name is) on the #1 side of the flush valve.

    Try flushing it with the tank lid off, just fully depressing the left side...

    Use the Template that came with the toilet

    Just so you don't feel bad, I had the same question when I installed 2 of these a couple of months ago.

    It seems TOTO was too lazy to print separate instructions for their radically different...

    I can't compare results to the Drake but I bought two of the Aquia IIIs a couple of months ago. No issues at all so far. The issue of "streaking" is rare, about the same as with my old dinosaur...
