    Hi all,

    I have a Toto Dorian (older 1-piece unifit rough-in) that has been clogging lately. It probably went a year without a clog and now 2 or 3 clogs in a month. A bit of plunging seems to fix...

    Recessed fixture problem

    Hello. The pictured recessed fixture decided to drop slightly out of the ceiling. It might have been held in previously with a paint film (I cleaned up the paint edge a bit before taking the...

    No frost because it has been switched off for a couple of days now and fully defrosted. The light is not coming through the coil--it is just a reflection off the tubing/fins. The camera has an LED...

    I was able to use my usb camera to get a picture on the inside of the coil and the blower wheel. The coil doesn't look too bad but difficult to tell how much dirt is caked in the fins. I am...

    Thanks, HJ. Do you think there is a flat portion of the body (currently between the top and bottom surfaces of the counter) that I can use to hold back on when removing the upper portion? When I...

    Thanks, John. What next? It looks like the whole thing has to come out to service it.

    Thanks for the good points. It seems like I should start with installing an expansion tank. Any requirements on how close to the water heater it should be placed? I don't have a lot of room from the...
  13. Korky quietfill maxperformance whistling

    I have a korky quietfill maxperformance fill valve that is about 6 weeks old. The trouble is that it is making a whistling/screeching sound when filling usually loudest right after the flush. Valve...

    I replaced my 60s, 80s and early 90s toilets with two totos and two AS cadet 3s (one-piece version). Both the toto and the AS cadet 3 flush better than what I had before. I had to complain to AS...

    Also, what would this "expert" say when the replacement toilet he sells also has a rough underside on the tank lid? Maybe he slaps some car wax on it before he brings it inside!

    It could be, but this toilet I picked up used from Craigslist (toto dorian). I cleaned it outside before installing it but didn't think about descaling until later. It had some brownish stains in...

    I left a CLR/water mixture in the bottom of the bowl overnight. It seems to have dissolved the crud inside in siphon jet hole after several hours.

    Descaling a toilet

    Good point about the water stain on the old one--that is 0.47" from the edge of the float housing.

    I agree. I am just pointing out that you can't just count the number of pegs from a 528t tower and set the 528mp at the same number of pegs. It seems like korky redesigned the 528mp a bit to fit more...

    Here is a side-by-side photo. From the top of the float case to the water level mark: on the 528T 0.70 inches, on the 528MP 0.32 inches. So the water level marks differ by 0.38 or 3/8". Maybe...

    I just posted another thread about the different water level marks on the toto by korky and the 528mp. The store probably just adjusted the body to the same height which would make the 528mp way too...
