Conditions for uninterrupted operation of the Tank Tank Unitaz: Troubleshooting

Plumbing in the house is distinguished by the complexity of repair. And bathroom with all accessories is not an exception. But there will be no problems if you know the device and cause problems with the toilet. Know – it’s almost half down on the way to the ability.

Design toilet bowl

Constructively, the standard toilet consists of two main parts: a drain (washed) tank and bowls. These parts are a container, the first of which serves to accumulate water, its conservation and drain into the bowl, and the second is connected to the sewage rummer, where the contents of the bowl occurs.

In modern species, the following elements are present:

  • Bowl itself with fasteners;
  • release device;
  • Plastic seat with lid included.

Bowls for installation in apartments are cast from porcelain or faience. In non-residential buildings, plastic and metal products are installed. In old houses there are still cast iron toilets, but they are unlikely to sell them.

The release of the bowl is arranged with a bend of the outlet up so that water always stood in the beginning of the bending. A hydraulication is formed, which prevents penetration into the toilet room of unpleasant odors from the sewage riser at home.

    Two groups of toilet bowls differ in the design of the outlet:

    • With a horizontal release, when the direction of the nozzle is parallel or under a small angle down to the floor surface;
    • with vertical release, in which the nozzle is directed vertically down.

    The second distribution option in Russia did not receive due to the model projects of sewage devices in residential apartment buildings, which do not give the ability to install the toilets of this group. It is suitable for private homeowners building their own housing for their own projects.

    Plum tank is a reservoir for washing water and is always above the location of the bowl. The higher the tank is installed, the more powerful water flow and the cleaner of the bowl.

    The tank in modern plumbing is attached:

    • directly on the mounting shelf on the back side of the bowl of the toilet (“compact”, the most popular option);
    • to the wall at some height from the installation of the bowl (suspended design);
    • Hidely into the wall (built-in tank).

    Inside the tank there are only two devices: water accumulation system and its descent system. These devices have a shut-off and drain fittings, which includes a shut-off valve and a valve of pouring and adjusting the water level. This also includes a float and water drain lever.

    Device inlet fittings

    There are two types of tanks at the entrance of water:

    • lateral water intake, when the tank’s inlet is located on the side of it in the upper part;
    • Lower intake involving water entry location from below the tank.

    In the drain tanks with lateral water supply at the entrance are fluid intake valve. The valve is connected to the device of its overlap, consisting of a horizontally located float on the bent brass lever (rocker). In the tanks having a lower supply of water, the intake valve is also located at the entrance below, but the float has no horizontal location in the tank, and the vertical. In any inlet design, the main part of the inlet valve is the membrane. Occasionally instead of membrane used piston valve.

    There is nothing complicated in the water drain mechanism, although there are a lot of its modifications related to water saving. The mechanism carries out drainage of water in the toilet. A piece of drain is overflow from a tank, which prevents the capacity overflow in cases of water intake malfunction. The drain system includes a shutter valve, a lever (or button) of the descent, an exhaust valve seat, a rod and a rod guide.

    Work of the mechanism

    The principle of operation of the entire washed device does not differ from the long-used sample. Drain from the tank in modern versions of the toilet is absolutely identical to the plum in the respective devices of Soviet times. A set of liquid in the tank comes from the apartment water supply. To turn off the water supply to the toilet must be a locking crane. Malfunctions with the toilet happen no less often than with water supply, and most importantly – they do not coincide in time. So in order to eliminate problems with the toilet, it is necessary to overlap the line from the water supply.

    If the water is lowered from the tank, the float is in the lower position of the tank, Opening the water intake path through the inlet valve. As the fluid level set in the tank, the float floats, gradually overlapping the inlet valve. Reaching a certain level of fluid in the tank, pop-up float through the rocker, associated with the valve membrane, completely overlaps the flow of water into the tank. At the same time, the fluid level pressure is pressed to its saddle. With a good fittings, the descent system does not miss a tank liquid.

    To use flushing, you need to pull the lever or click the descent button on the tank. Opening a shutter valve. Water rushes to the bowl of toilet bowl. The dual-mode tank has two shutter buttons: small volume of the work environment for washing and full washed. After emptying the tank, the intake float turns out to be in the lower position and opens the inlet valve. The system cycle is repeated.

    Assembly

    To collect and engage the toilet with all devices, you need to act according to the algorithm (on the example of a popular type “Compact” with a horizontal release):

    • overlap water to the old toilet;
    • dismantle the old toilet and tank;
    • Install the bowl and place the fastening sites if they do not coincide with the old;
    • drill holes and insert dowels in them;
    • Install the bowl in place, insert fasteners and slightly fasten them;
    • Check the horizontal of the installed bowl in the level;

    • Install the cover and the toilet seat;
    • perform the operation of connecting the exhaust pipe of the bowl to the sewer pipe by means of a sealing cuff, while treating the ends of the compounds;
    • make sealing of a joint bowl with a floor and finally tighten its fasteners;
    • Install the tank (usually all the tank elements are already in the finished form);
    • Lubricate the tank hole ring ring to the mounting shelf toilet with a sealant and set the container to the mounting place;

    • Tighten the tank pair bolts with a toilet and install on the tank cover;
    • Connect the flexible hose from the water pipe to the tank;
    • Check the operation of toilet devices;
    • In case of faults, you need to adjust all systems and troubleshoot.

    Causes and troubleshooting

    The most frequent problems – leaks through a drain system from a tank.

    Methods of elimination depends on the cause.

    • Violated the adjustment of the float of the water intake system in the tank and therefore excess water flows through overflow. You need to open the tank and by sweeping the float lever to achieve the desired adjustment of the water level in the container. Penalty Float Changes Water Level.
    • The tightness of the saddle or pear is impaired on the tank plum, so they do not keep the desired fluid level. On the pear and saddle can postpone the flare, they can also deform. It should be cleaned or replace a pear and seat strip.

    • Water is not recruited in a tank. If the intake valve is clean, then possible causes in the supply tube, hose or crane. You can disconnect the hose and check the water pressure in the system. If the cause is confirmed in feed connections, it is necessary to clean or replace the hose, water filter or crane.
    • Feels intake valve after a set of level. Sometimes it’s all about improper level adjustment, as a result of which the float rests in the tank cover. You can adjust the level (reduce it) bending a brass float lever.
    • Flowing at the water intake place in the tank. It is necessary to adjust the level below the inlet and replace rubber gaskets on this hole.
    • The (lever) button does not work due to mechanical reasons or the displacement of parts of the wash mechanism. Can be replaced and adjust the details, if necessary.

    Many malfunctions can be eliminated independently, without attracting plumbers.

    Useful advice

        To all the toilet systems work smoothly, you need:

        • Periodically produce revision of reinforcement, gaskets, supplying hose;
        • timely identify and eliminate the leakage of the system;
        • control and adjust the correct fluid level in the tank;
        • Periodically purify the details of the supply system and draining water from pollution.
