1

PROBLEM:
Flushometer DOES NOT Function (No Flush)

CAUSE:
A) Control stop or main supply valve is closed.

2

PROBLEM:
Handle Leaks

3

PROBLEM:
Water Splashes from Fixture

CAUSE:
A) Control stop is open wider than necessary.

B) Water saver/ conventional diaphragm assembly is installed on low consumption fixture, or closet diaphragm assembly is installed on urinal fixture.

SOLUTION:
A) Adjust control stop for desired delivery of water volume.

B) Determine the required flush volume (see label on valve or markings on fixture.) Replace diaphragm assembly or relief valve for appropriate flush volume of fixture.

4

PROBLEM:
Volume of Water is Insufficient to adequately siphon fixture

CAUSE:
A) Control stop is not open wide enough.

B) Diaphragm assembly is damaged.

C) Low consumption diaphragm assembly is installed on water saver/ conventional fixture or urinal diaphragm assembly is installed on closet fixture.

D) Inadequate water volume or pressure is available from supply.

SOLUTION:
A) Adjust control stop for desired delivery of water volume.

B) Replace diaphragm assembly.

C) Determine the required flush volume (see label on valve or markings on fixture.) Replace diaphragm assembly or relief valve for appropriate flush volume of fixture.

D) Increase flow rate or pressure to the valve. If gauges are not available to measure supply pressure/ volume, remove relief valve from diaphragm assembly and open the control stop. If the fixture siphons, additional water volume is required. Install higher flushing volume relief valve or diaphragm assembly or cut flow ring from guide. If the fixture DOES NOT siphon (or low consumption flush is required,) additional steps must be taken to increase the water pressure and/or volume at the water supply. Contact fixture manufacturer for minimum supply requirements of fixture.
