A REALY CRAPPY PROBLEM


Recommended Posts

I have a Damon Tuscany with a Dometic Sealand model 210 toilet. Recently after flushing it failed to close completely and water commenced to fill up the tank. Fortunately we discovered it before it filled the MH with nasty fluid. The toilet had not been holding water well for some time so I removed the black rubber seals and cleaned them (a real pleasant task!). After replacing them the toilet sealed and held water, but only if one lifts the flush pedal up with their foot. I.E it doesn't replace the ball with out a lift assist.

Is there an easy fix for this? Or do I have to replace a part?

We had a problem with ours not wanting to close all the way (the ball seal - not the water valve). Ended up having to replace the metal lever assembly due to corrosion where it rides on the water valve "button". It always operated somewhat sluggish and you had to let it "pop" back up from the floor versus slowing it's return with your foot. After replacing the lever it operates with very little effort and is very smooth.

 

I did do a complete rebuild (ball, seals and spring cartridge) initially but had not changed the lever until later and was really surprised at how much difference it made. Actually may have been the culprit all along.

We also have that Sealand toilet. My experience has been that it is very susceptible to mineral buildup on the ball and seal. The first two years we had the MH we replaced the seals twice and couldn't figure out why they were going bad. Then I read about using CLR in the bowl and it, indeed, does work. I haven't had any problems for the past two years. Now that we have a water softener we have probably further reduced the concern, but I'll still keep a bottle of CLR around, just in case.
