Hello, I have a problem with the water pump continually pumping. I finally located the problem, it seems the toilet is running water when the pedal is retracted. Has anyone come across this problem before, and if so, where do you get seals/parts for a toilet. Mine is a Model 461 Deluxe Classic low profile water flush toilet. Is it very difficult to repair?
I can sympathize with your problem.
When we bought our Tril 5500, we had the same problem - continually running water whenever there was pressure in the line. Parts for our toilet were no longer available, and the plastic is brittle enough with age that taking it apart might cause more problems than what I can fix.
My solution was to put a valve in the incoming water line to shut off the flow of water. It's not pretty, and it's a pain in the *** to both turn on the valve and then flush, but it works. When the budget allows we may replace the toilet or modify another brand's valve assm (if possible - and if I get brave enough to take it apart to see if we can even do that).
And don't get the plastic valves you might find in an RV store - found out the hard way that they leak under city pressure. Ended up using the same brass ball valve I use for my underground sprinklers - heavy, but not much more $$ than a plastic valve. Picked that up, plus the necessary couplers at the local home center in the plumbing section (under $10 for all). Now if I can just get the shower to stop leaking when we turn on the bathroom taps...
