Toto Ultramax Toilet Problem
Posted by Nylen Shelton on February 19, 2004 at 17:29:35:
I recently had a Kohler low-flow toilet replaced with a Toto Ultramax toilet. The Ultramax has never stopped up, and it flushes everything with one flush. The Kohler required a plunger about 50% of the time. I'm totally pleased with the flushing action. My problem is with the fill valve. It worked fine for a few days, then started leaking, i.e., it wouldn't completely shut off after the tank filled. The plumber who did the installation replaced the valve with a new one from the local Toto dealer. This valve worked okay for a week or so, then, after flushing, there would be a couple of seconds delay before the tank started filling. Now, the tank fills for a few seconds, then stops for a second, fills for another second, then stops. This continues until the tank his full, then the fill valve shuts off. Has anyone had this experience? What is the solution? I'm currently having a valve shipped from the Toto manufacturer. I would appreciate hearing from someone on this problem.
