I'm trying to replace the gasket (part #7 in the diagram), which I have except cannot figure out how to remove the lower valve housing. Does it need to be rotated counter-clockwise or clockwise, or just pulled out? Seems to be stuck and I'm worried I'll break the lower plastic legs connecting to the gasket mounting nut if I force it.

This is the part of their conversation to 1/4 turn the upper housing counter clockwise to access the piston.

Just an update for all who have leaking porcher veneto toilets.. I have a 11-year old porcher, so I called Porcher at 1-800-359-3261 in regards to my leaking veneto.. They transferred me to a technical support specialist who said I either needed a new flush piston, aptly referred to as a piston assembly 83084.00.000 by ha1976, or a new membrane. They sent me both..

My leak was due to the piston assembly (flush piston). The piston sits inside the upper valve housing. The upper valve housing comes off by twisting the upper housing counter-clockwise. When you lift the valve housing out of the tank you will see the flush piston extruding from the bottom of the housing. The flush piston can be pulled out of the housing.. Yes, it just pulls out. And you just push the new piston in place.. Secure the valve assembly back into the tank by rotating the housing clock-wise.. By the way, my veneto has two clips on the housing which secure the housing in place.

Hope this helps. And thanks to everyone on this site who gave me enough info to fix my leaking veneto.. Cheers to the tech specialist at Porcher who helped me too.

Thank you. Per Porcher customer service, the lower flush assembly is bolted to the plastic liner with a plastic ring nut located on the bottom so the liner needs to be removed completely for access.

Can you post pictures of the inside of the tank for us? There is like nothing on the NET.

Sure, here's a photo of the inside of the tank clearing showing the plastic liner, flush valve assembly, etc.

I have a 24 yr old Porcher. After reading the threads, I decided to replace both the water control assembly and the flush valve assembly with a third party side fill valve and a traditional flush valve (both from nuflush).
