Im having problems with an upstairs toilet. I changed the siphon a few weeks ago as
it was split. New siphon is exactly the same as the old but it only worked for about a
day and then stopped flushing. Took it out and it looks okay not splits in the membrane.
Fitted a second new unit (came in a pack of two) and it did exactly the same worked
okay for a short time then stopped flushing.
Any thoughts if i might be doing something wrong or if i might have the wrong unit is
there different types besides volume ?
Woudl it be possible to change the whole WC over to one of those "flap" type units i know
B&Q do a conversion kit but is it recommended ?
Ive been fitting a few of these now. Usually quite straightforward but in the summer I fitted 2 that malfunctioned. In spite of being new units, after 3-4 weeks they would only work intermittantly. I took both out, inspected them and replaced them with no improvement. They are cheap so I finally replaced them with no further problems. I put it down to a bad batch coming through the production line. Perhaps yours came through at the same time!
