Flush Valve Stuck on Toilet

by Lynda (SealRock, OR)

Question: My young grandson pushed on the pedal to flush the toilet, and now it will not stop running water. We have to turn off the pump – how can we fix this?

Answer: We suggest you contact the manufacturer of the commode, or a store that sells replacement parts for your toilet brand and model.

Most RV commode manufacturers sell a kit to fix your problem. In the ten years we have had our rig we have repaired our commode twice. Once because the toilet would not stop flushing (like yours) and once because the seal at the flapper (that’s the thing that covers the opening) failed.
