Thread: Push Button urnial

  1. #1

    Default Push Button urnial

    Greetings--- I have a urnial with the old type manual push button flush, The only writing I can find on the breaker, Sloan Valve Co . I went to Sloans website but can't find the type of flush valve I have. The breaker is a v500. The problem is the water will not shut off . I would like to get a repair kit . Any Idea who would make this type of valve? Thanks Bill

    Checking the sloan web page comes up with a few buttom style valves. checking the pages for the v500 comes up empty. Ya I know you knew that, so taking a picture of the valve will help alot.
    I'm just starting to work with an old friend of mine to bring solar electric and hot water systems, wind turbines, Flex Fuel Boilers, batteries, hydroponic gardening, books, pellet grills and more. Also the parts for DIY installation.

    V-500-AA is the Vacuum breaker assembly for the valve.
    5323005 is 3/4" x 9" which is for the urinal
    5323006 is 1-1/4" x 9 which is old style urinal
    5323007 is 1-1/2" x 9 which is for a toilet.

    They have tons of Repair and rebuid kits but you would need to find out which one you have, can you take a picture and e-mail it to
    ussales.411@sloanvalve.com they should be able to identify it for you.

    You either need to clean the diaghram, or replace it.
    The chrome top on the valve comes off with a "spud" wrench, or any flat non serated wrench thats big enough (so not to ruin the polished finish).
    Take out the black disk, hold it up to a light, you should see a pinhole on the disk.
    If not, clean it & re-assemble.
    Any plumbing supply should have it if you need to replace it.

    Default valve

    Push button could be a Chicago Niad valve.

    Default valve

    Almost any good parts store will have a new insert stem. Make sure it has the "dashpot" on the end that controls how fast it closes.

    That is one interesting valve. It does look rather old. Should get a new motion sensor valve. I don't care for touching those things.

    Patrick 88 ---------- Is there a sensor valve that would" Bolt Up"----Would that just take the place of the valve or the breaker also? Bill

    I believe the sensor valves for urinals are 3/4" and I think you would need to lower the breaker

    So it's a meter initiated urinal flush valve.
    You will need to changed the push button unit which is most of the unit.
    Chicago's new unit is:
    http://www.chicagofaucets.com/catalo...=45&manufact=1
    and the push buttom unit is:
    http://www.chicagofaucets.com/catalo...169&manufact=1
    and it's about a third of the price of a new unit, but any manufactuer will have a new one that will work.
