What do you need to know about a Microphor toilet?

Microphor toilets are an air-operated and air-assisted toilet. By this I mean that the operation of the toilet, the opening of the hopper valve, the turning on of the water and the timing of the flush cycle is all controlled by compressed air.

How does the flapper valve work on a Microphor toilet?

The air in the flapper valve cylinder is vented through ports in the AWS valve and the back of the pushbutton or actuator (not shown in the diagram). This allows the piston to be driven downwards by the air applied to the top end of the cylinder.

What should I do if my toilet water shut off is not working?

Connect the toilet’s water line to the new valve and hand-tighten the hex nut until snug, then tighten the hex nut one-quarter to one-half turn using an adjustable wrench. Turn the main gate valve back on to restore the water supply to the toilet and check the new valve for leaks.

What causes an RV toilet to keep running?

Why does my RV toilet not hold water?

Trust us, you don’t want to be unfamiliar with your toilet when you’re somewhere up a mountain in negative temperatures and discover that the bowl won’t hold water… You’ll typically only have to worry about one key part of the RV toilet, and that’s the seal that separates the basin from the drain and retains water.

What’s the best way to fix an RV toilet?

The key is to make sure you have everything you need before you even get started. Remember to always make sure you turn the water off before working on your toilet. This includes turning off the shut-off valve and disconnecting the city water supply or turning off the pump. Giving the toilet a flush will release any residual water pressure.
