When your Microphor toilet doesn't retain water in the bowl, it can be more than just an annoyance—it could signal a need for maintenance or parts replacement. Whether you have an air-operated or electric model, each type requires specific steps to troubleshoot and resolve the issue effectively.

 

For Air-Operated Toilets:

  1. Examine the Flapper Gasket: The flapper gasket ensures a tight seal between the flapper and the toilet base. Over time, it can degrade. Check for any signs of deterioration and replace the gasket if necessary.
  2. Check the Flapper: The flapper is crucial for maintaining water in the bowl. Inspect it for wear and tear or improper sealing. If it appears damaged or worn out, replacing it may solve the problem.
  3. Inspect the Air Cylinder: The air cylinder controls the flapper's operation. Ensure that it is functioning correctly and providing enough pressure to keep the flapper sealed when not flushing.
  4. Consider a Replacement Kit: If multiple components show signs of wear, it might be more efficient to use a complete flapper replacement kit (90066-5) or air cylinder repair kit to fix your existing parts.

 

For Electric Toilets:

  1. Flapper Check: Inspect the flapper to ensure it is not worn or damaged. A faulty flapper can fail to create a proper seal, allowing water to leak out of the bowl continuously. It is possible you may need a new flapper gasket.
  2. Adjust the Clevis: If the flapper appears intact, the next step is to adjust the tension of the clevis. This adjustment helps in properly positioning the flapper so it can seal effectively after each flush. Improper clevis tension can prevent the flapper from seating correctly, causing the bowl to empty.
  3. 3. Consider a Replacement Kit: If multiple components show signs of wear, it might be more efficient to use a complete flapper replacement kit (90066-3) to overhaul the relevant parts.

 

Both types of toilets may also benefit from a general inspection and cleaning to remove any debris or buildup that could impact functionality. If after these steps, your toilet still fails to retain water, it may be time to reach out to us for customer support and more specialized assistance.

 

Regular maintenance and prompt attention to these issues can help ensure your Microphor toilet operates efficiently, saving you time and discomfort in the long run.
