How To Solve The Toilet Odor, Yellowing, Leaking, Slow Drainage And Other Problems? Here Is A Detailed Solution Strategy!

Bathroom Business School


Anti-odor, yellowing, leaking, clogging, shifting, slow down, not clean flushing and other problems, in the process of daily use of the toilet, often plagued us. When encountering these situations, consumers usually attribute it to toilet quality problems. But many times it is caused by improper use by consumers. How to solve these six types of problems? Here is a detailed solution strategy.


Toilet back smell


1, The flange of the toilet is not sealed properly with the pipe mouth is one of the culprits of odor. Installation, should be dumped at the drain in advance embedded oil paste and other materials to seal the interface. If the interface is sealed, the odor may be emitted from the floor tile.

2, The bottom of the toilet sealant is not played tightly, resulting in odor out of return.

3, The toilet around the floor tile is not hooked tight seam, the odor returned.

4, The toilet cover is not sealed tightly, causing the odor to return.

5, Check whether the water seal of the toilet is enough. Generally good toilet water flushing after a certain amount of water seal stored in, to ensure the isolation of the pipe. If the water seal is destroyed, it is time to change the toilet.

6, In the installation, there is no good sewer pipe and toilet outlet docking seal. This is also easy to have odor run out.



1, The toilet around the floor tile is bulging up. Repair the bulging floor tiles first.

2, Use glass glue to play a circle at the bottom edge of the toilet to keep it sealed.

3, After the toilet, cover the toilet cover in time.

4, Often use water to flush the toilet, so that the water storage bend does not store stagnant water or spoiled water.

5, Use toilet bowl cleaner as unclogging agent: every once in a while you can pour the right amount of toilet bowl cleaner into the toilet. Cover the toilet lid and wait a while. And then flush with water, can keep the toilet smooth.

6, You can place a small cup of balsamic vinegar in the toilet, and the odor will disappear. Its validity is six or seven days, and can be changed once a week. Or dry the residual tea leaves and put them into the toilet or ditch to burn and smoke, which can eliminate the bad smell.

Toilet yellowing


The inside wall of the toilet is yellow. After the toilet has been used for a long time, the scale and urine scale on the toilet will become more. The inner wall of the toilet will become yellow.



① Old stockings: First spray a foaming stain remover inside the toilet bowl. Then roll the old stocking on a stick to brush it. This will completely remove the dirt inside the toilet bowl.

② Coke: Pour a carbonated drink such as Coke into the toilet bowl and brush it. The effect is also good.

③ Vinegar: White vinegar is acidic, while the odor factor of the toilet is alkaline, when the two meet, a neutralization reaction will occur. In addition, put the white vinegar in the mineral water bottle, then poke a few small holes at the bottom of the water bottle, then place the bottle normally in the water tank, every time you flush, the vinegar can flow out with the water. Not only can you avoid the yellowing of the toilet wall, but also can effectively deodorize, and put a bottle in the tank can also save water, so it can kill three birds with one stone.

④ Use 84 disinfectant. 84 disinfectant is mainly composed of sodium hypochlorite (NaClO). Sodium hypochlorite has extremely strong oxidizing properties. It can oxidize most substances and denature them, and thus can play a disinfecting role. Sodium hypochlorite reacts chemically with carbon dioxide in the air to produce hypochlorous acid (HCIO), which is an acid and is corrosive. The main component of limescale and urine scale is calcium carbonate (CaCO₃). Cleaning the toilet with 84 disinfectant can not only remove limescale and urine scale but also play a disinfecting role.

The specific cleaning operation is as follows: pour the 84 disinfectant solution slowly along the inside wall of the toilet bowl in a circle. After half an hour, use the toilet brush to brush. The toilet bowl can basically be bright and clean as new. Then pour some laundry detergent into the toilet, the toilet will not only be bright and clean as new but also have a light fragrance.



Toilet leakage


Generally speaking, there are many reasons for toilet leaks. In addition to the tank accessories in the drain valve seal is not tight, and the toilet itself is not up to quality and other issues.

1, Poor quality materials: some manufacturers are bent on reducing production costs. They will choose inferior materials caused by the water inlet valve outlet and the water inlet pipe itself cracked during injection molding, resulting in sealing failure.The water in the tank through the drain valve overflow pipe into the toilet, resulting in “long flow of water”.

The water in the tank through the drain valve overflow pipe into the toilet, resulting in “long flow of water”.

2, Tank accessories miniaturization: If you overly pursue the miniaturization of the tank accessories, this will lead to floating ball (or floating bucket) buoyancy of insufficient. When the water submerged floating ball (or floating bucket), still can not make the water inlet valve closed. This makes the water keep flowing into the tank, and eventually from the overflow pipe into the toilet caused by leakage. Especially when the tap water pressure is high, this phenomenon is particularly obvious.

3, The interference of the water tank accessories: interference in the action of the institutions of the water tank accessories, which will lead to leakage. For example, when the water tank release float and float rod down behind, this will affect the normal reset of the flap, resulting in leakage. There is also a float rod is too long, the float ball is too large. These cause friction with the tank wall, affecting the free lift of the float, resulting in seal failure and leakage.

4, The drainage valve is not sealed at each connection: non-disposable forming of the drainage valve due to poor sealing at the coupling. Under the action of water pressure, water flows from the interface gap through the overflow pipe into the toilet, resulting in leakage. Free to change the height of the lift-type water inlet valve. If its sealing ring and the wall with the tube is not tight, there will often be leakage.

5, The seal ring is not sealed tightly. If after flushing in the toilet, leaking from the bottom of the toilet, and the water is unclear and smells, then you can basically determine that the bottom of the toilet drain on the seal ring is not sealed well. The sealant between the edge of the toilet and the ground is also not sealed tightly. In the case of poor drainage pipes, the dirt flows backwards. You can first confirm whether the drainage pipe is not smooth, if not smooth, you should first unclog the pipe, and then let the product salesman to reinstall the toilet. Most of this phenomenon occurs soon after the installation of the toilet.

6, The toilet has cracks. If found from the toilet surface at any time there is water seepage phenomenon, it is suspected that there may be cracks in the toilet. The test method is: first turn off the water inlet valve, followed by the toilet tank in the water drainage clean. Then use red ink or colored ink added to the residual water in the tank, stay for about 30 minutes. Observe whether any place with colored ink seepage. If there is, you can conclude that the toilet has cracks. This situation can not be repaired. Even if it is repaired, it is still a faulty toilet, and the only way is to replace it.



1, Check whether the flush switch is reset. Some flush toilets of plastic flush switch wear for a long time will occasionally stuck, and can not reset. Generally repeat the switch several times and it can be reset. Check whether the rubber gasket of the drain under the ball valve is aging. If the seal is not tight, when you find the problem, you need to replace.

2, Check whether the connection between the tank ball float and the water inlet switch is loose. If the float is in place, check whether the switch is not closed. Check what is causing the water intake to be non-stop. Water flows out from the upright drain pipe when it is full. Just tighten the float and water valve switch connection. If the rubber ball valve is damaged, the seal is not tight and there is a leak. You need to replace it immediately.

3, The water tank leaks, basically the problem of the drain valve. Check the condition of the water tank outlet rubber plug. If the water outlet plug is broken or blocked by foreign objects and the plug is not sealed tightly, it will also cause the toilet to flow more than water. If the water tank is not correctly placed in the fill pipe, more or less will also have an impact.

Warm tips.

If the water leaks due to the cracking of the interface part between the toilet pumping mouth and the downpipe. It is best not to repair it yourself, it is recommended to ask a professional plumber to repair it.



Toilet blockage

Slight toilet clogging.

Slight toilet clogging is usually caused by toilet paper or toilet tissue, towel rags, etc. This kind of blockage can be unblocked by directly using a pipe unblocking machine or a simple unblocking tool.



1, Caustic soda, oxalic acid: many times with more flushing water, the toilet will pass by itself.  Especially for the mud, paper and other soluble or breakable items. If it is something very greasy, then flush a pot of boiling water down to melt it away. Or buy some caustic soda. Boil water and melt the caustic soda. Pour it into the toilet and it will pass after ten minutes. Or use the right amount of oxalic acid to unclog the toilet (you can usually clean the toilet with oxalic acid. It is just neutralized with urine alkali to make the toilet unblocked).

2, Wire: use wire made of hooks stretched into the sewer mouth inside stirring. This can make dirt wrapped around the wire, and then yank out the wire to drag the dirt out of the sewer mouth. Or find a half-inch-wide bamboo strip into the toilet to unclog.

3, Mop, plunger: fill the toilet bowl with half of the water. Use a round mop or round-headed soft brush, aimed at the hole in the sewer pounding. You can also use that old-fashioned mopping pad, fill half of the water and then use the mopping pad to press hard into the hole a few times. You have to move fast and rely on the pressure to get it through. Or go to the market to buy a plunger, and then put a few strokes. Half a month with once, it will not be blocked.

4, Beverage bottles: use beverage bottles to unclog. Cut off the bottom of the finished large Coke bottle, put it upside down in the toilet, and hold the bottom with your hand to pump up a few times.

5, Air cylinder. Wrap a rag around the cylinder and pour some water into it. Start pumping air into it, and it will be unclogged in a while.

6, Hose. Find a section of hose. Connect one end of it to the faucet. The other end is wrapped with a rag and inserted into the sewer pipe. Then turn on the tap water and you’re done. The principle is that the pressure of the tap water is about 4Mpa.

It is completely possible to flush the sewer. Remember not to let the hose leak at both ends to maintain the highest pressure.

Remember not to let the hose leak at both ends to maintain the highest pressure.

7, Toilet bowl. Use a toilet flusher. This is a tool invented specifically for blocked pipes to unclog. The front end of the toilet passer is a flexible spring. The length of the spring is determined by the height of the blockage from the toilet opening. After tightening the screw, force the spring into the pipe until it is unclogged or the dirt is taken out.

8, Pipe unclogging agent. Use a pipe unclogging agent. This is a kind of powder unclogging product that can be used for any pipe unclogging. Unclogging agent will be put into the amount of three times each time about 50 grams, 1-3 minutes interval. Stay for three minutes to flush into hot water after all the inputs are finished. Finally, stay for 10 minutes and then flush with water. After this operation, you should be able to unclog the toilet.


Toilet blockage by hard objects.

Accidentally drop in plastic brushes, bottle caps, soap, combs and other hard objects when using.


This kind of clogging slight can directly use the pipe unclogging machine or simple unclogger to unclog directly. In serious cases, the toilet must be unclogged. This situation can only be completely solved by getting things out.

Toilet aging blockage.

When the toilet is used for a long time, scale will inevitably form on the inner wall. In serious cases, it will block the outlet hole of the toilet and cause the toilet to drain slowly.


Find the vent hole and scrape the dirt, then you can make the toilet water flow smoothly.

Toilet bowl shift


Usually in the renovation, the bathroom is usually reserved for the sewage outlet, and then to install the toilet. However, there will be two do not match the situation, so the toilet had to be relocated. However, toilet relocation not only involves sewer and waterproofing changes, but also involves downstairs tenants. If the modification is not good, it may cause poor drainage, which is troublesome.

1, Due to the toilet pit distance is not suitable, need to adjust the toilet position. This is the most common problem. General pit distance within 10CM move, you can use the toilet shifter to solve the problem. But the disadvantage is not handled well later easy to block, so can not move.

640 12 1

2, You need to discuss with the downstairs tenants, and change the location of the sewer pipe. Generally, the top of the downstairs to do a large elbow, so that it will not be as easy to block the toilet shifter. But after changing the location of the downpipe, be sure to do a good job of waterproofing again. Do a good closed water test to ensure that there is no leakage. Generally is also suitable for small distance changes. The premise of this method is that the downstairs has not been renovated before it is easier to implement.

3, Change the wall-mounted wall drainage toilet. This is a relatively good program. And wall-mounted toilets also look more high-grade, but relatively speaking wall-mounted toilets are generally more expensive.

The toilet is slow and does not flush clean

Reason One.

Flange interface installation fashion deviation, the downstream flow is reduced.



1, When buying a toilet: Be sure to pay attention. General water tank to tile water pipe about 30 ~ 35cm. they are 110cm in diameter.

2, When installing the toilet, you have to supervise the whole process. Be sure to determine the installation location, the way no mistakes.Otherwise, if there is a subsequent problem, the situation is serious, you have to remove the toilet and reinstall it.

Otherwise, if there is a subsequent problem, the situation is serious, you have to remove the toilet and reinstall it.

3, After the installation of Wan toilet, you do not immediately test the water. If you test the water right away, it will wash away the cement at the bottom, thus causing the toilet to be unstable, as well as causing the bottom to leak. You should also not use it immediately, because the cement at the bottom is not yet dry.

640 17 1


Reason Two.

The toilet itself has insufficient pumping power and insufficient water pressure.


1, You can increase the amount of water, such as putting bottles in the water tank.

2, Adjust the screw of the water inlet valve clockwise to let the water level rise. Note that the water should be at least 10mm away from the overflow orifice of the drain valve.

3, Properly adjust the water level of the tank. If the flush is not strong, or flush the water down slowly, it can only mean that the water pipe is a little blocked. You need to unclog the next can. If the slow flow from the tank to the toilet, you check whether there is something blocking the toilet tank to the flush outlet.

640 18 1


Reason Three.

Insufficient flushing water, there is a water stoppage and other problems.


1, If the amount of water is not enough, you can take down the tank cover, adjust the amount of water. Two plastic rods under the toilet release button. There is a screw plug on top. It can adjust the length of the plastic rod to control the amount of water.

2, If the amount of water is still not enough, you can only change the toilet. You can choose the siphon toilet. It works well.

640 15


Reason four.

Long-term use, resulting in the inner measurement of the downpipe stained with dirt, resulting in the downpour becomes smaller.


You can take down the downpipe and put it into the acid. Eliminate the accumulation of dirt, and then install it. The water flow will be much faster. If there is a soft object blocked, you can use a kind of soft spiral pass through, or use the toilet kick. If there is any hard object, it is best to find a professional company to solve it.

In the process of use, the toilet will appear various phenomena. The homeowner’s anxiety is understandable. After all, most owners have worked hard for half a lifetime for this house. But very often, when the toilet has a smell, yellowing, leaking, clogging, shifting, slow toilet drainage, toilet water can not be clean flushing and other problems, it really is not the quality of the toilet land!
