        toilet flushes multiple times Sign In/Join 
        posted
        I'm having a question about a church toilet in a handicap stall.

        When you flush this toilet, it flushes rapidly about 4 times in a row. There is not a big delay between flushes. When I asked the maintenance department to fix it, they responded that it is "designed to do that". This, of course, is the same group that used a safety pin to fix another toilet.

        Is this the truth? Are there toilets designed to flush four times in a row? Or is this a load of... well, you know what?

        Is it one of the sensor activated toilets?

        if tank type...replace the ballcock...that ones had it
        if flush valve...rebuild it, or take it apart on clean it..maybe trash[sand]

        It is not automatic - it has a flush handle. It just flushes in rapid repetition with one push of the handle.

        it cant...when you push the handle
        the flapper opens via a chain
        and all the water goes into the bowl
        oh.....brahahahaha...the chain needs to be adjusted
        you said it flushed,,to me.that means it completly flushes...but, if the chain to long,,it could stutter
        does it TRY to flush, then quit then try
        replace flapper, adjust chain
