    Default Curbside 3/6 liter Flush, What a nightmare to Adjust, Still Not Working

    Kohler 3/6 liter Flush, What a nightmare to Adjust.

    I found a Kohler 3/6 Liter Flush on the curb (sorry no model number I looked and looked I can not find it) I picked it up and it was in my trunk in seconds ( heavy sucker) I installed in less then 10 minutes and now the fun starts.

    It has one button on the side of the tank when pushing and releasing the button there appears to be only a bit of water that is released not sufficient to clear the paper. If you hold the button for at least 5 seconds it flushes like a normal toilet. The other problem is there does not appear to have sufficient water to clear or flush the entire bowl, example if you were to throw toilet paper on the side of the bowl there is no water to clear it or very little water especially at the front of the bowl. Any hope or is it time for me to place it on the curb and let some one else pull there hair out trying to get it to work like a toil.

    Sounds like a bargain to me. And you want it to flush paper too?

    Have you looked on the Kohler website to determine the model?
    If you find that, you should be able to find instructions for it.
    Kohler is pretty good about that.

    Who picks up a toilet thats been left out for the trash man and then runs home and installs it? Did your refrigerator box not have a working toilet?

    I also made sure all the small holes around the bowl were not pluged, I did manage to get water flowing out of the holes by playing around with the center valve. Man oh man I can set-up and tune a chevy v8 easier then this crazy thing.

    Use Google image search.

    Call Kohler and ask them what they have that is similar looking to their Rialto.

    The only number under the lid is a 07 No other numbers I looked in the tank. The only place I did not look is behind the tank to late already installed. I will try and see if Kohler can ID via the pictures. I am also wondering if I can convert this to a normal flush system from parts at Home Depot

    It's kind of interesting when I see the pictures.
    At least check with Kohler and see what they say.

    It looks kind of complicated to be switching it.
    You have the fill hose there..........

    The numbers might also be outside the bowl near the left rear tank area...

    Above where the rag is in your first picture...

    Does that say Kohler anywhere on the outside? I don't see it in the picture, and Kohler always puts there name on it. Also, the flush and fill mechanism looks hokey...not that Kohler doesn't do some weird stuff, it just doesn't look like Kohler inside. Also, they would always emboss or ink a K- model number inside the tank. And it would talk GALLONS per flush, not liters.
