Identify and know the 3 main parts of the tank fittings:
Remove the tank cover and check the ff:-
Unscrew the tank & bowl bolts and nuts (locking nuts) and check the ff:-
Check if somebody without your knowledge accidentally drops something solid which blocked the passage of the water in the p-trap of the bowl that have caused the poor flushing performance of the toilet.
Consult a certified plumber should there still be a problem that have caused due to wrong installation.
Check the fill valve for clog and check if the water pressure is too low. Check and clean the fill valve filter screen.

No, they are not strong enough to be walked on, they are generally not thick enough and the glaze is different, and not suitable for the floor. Keep an eye out whether the tiles which are on the wall are porcelain or ceramic, because you can use porcelain wall tiles on the floor as they are strong enough, it’s just ceramic tiles you need to be wary of.
Typical uses of ceramic tile are showers, backsplashes, bathroom and kitchen walls and floors. Requiring a stronger material than ceramic, porcelain tile is developed by composing finer bisques, finishes and firing methods.
Yes you can fix tiles over existing tiling, but first you need to check that the existing tiling is firmly bonded to the background, then clean and degrease the tiles. In order to get the best possible results you will have to rough the surface of the tile possibly using a piece of sand paper, once you have disregarded the dust off the tile then proceed to cover the tiles using bonding agent so that the tiles will have that extra bond with the existing tiles. We recommend that if you are tiling over tile on the wall use D2 adhesive and flexible rapid set for the floor.
Porcelain Tiles are known for their durability and zero-maintenance qualities which make them a favorite for use in areas that are exposed to heavy wear & tear. Especially when there is an opportunity to use a heavy duty material without having to compromise on aesthetic appeal.
Ceramic tiles are only designed to be use indoors due to the tiles being frost proof. On the other hand you can use porcelain tiles as they have the right ingredients to with stand the frost. If you are laying porcelain tiles outside you will need to use acrylic SBR Primer on the floor before hand, once that has dried (leave for about minimum of 12 hours), use flexible rapid (never use ready mix adhesive, always use powered adhesive).
Because you are getting a superior product, Porcelain tile requires the finest natural ingredients and rigidly controlled manufacturing process that utilizes the most advanced processes and technology.
The wooden floor where the floor tiles are going on to must be sound with no flexing. Firstly we would recommend overlaying the floor with 12mm minimum plywood, screwed at 200mm centers. Then you should apply one coat of primer to the wood and allow to dry 9it will depend on the adhesive you are using as to whether this is necessary). Then we would recommend solid bed fixing the tiles with cement based flexible adhesive. The floor must be dry fully before grouting (minimum of 24 hours). Then we would recommend using cement based wide joint grout with added flexibility.
Tile terminology can be confusing. Most types of tiles that are clay or a mixture of clay and other materials. Then kiln-fired, are considered to be part of the larger called “Ceramic tiles”. These tiles can be split into two groups, porcelain tiles and non-porcelain tiles. These non-porcelain tiles are frequently referred to as ceramic tiles by themselves, separate from porcelain tiles.
To be used outdoors, we recommend the tile must be frost proof and unglazed for the floor use. Make sure the absorption rate is 0.5% or less.
Glazed tiles are coated with liquid glass, which is then baked into the surface of the clay. The glaze provides an unlimited array of the colors and designs as well as protects the tile staining. The unglazed tiles are pretty much the same as the glazed tile, except that their surface is not coated. Full-body porcelain tiles do not show wear because their color extends throughout the tile, making them ideal for commercial applications.
A glazed tile is already stain proof, so there is no purpose to putting on a sealer. You may put a penetrating sealer on your unglazed tile or your grout joints. The penetrating sealer is an invisible, stain resistant shield that is absorbed into the surface.
PEI classes range from 0 to 5. The Porcelain Enamel Institute rating scale is not measurement of quality. It is a scale that clearly indicates the areas of use each manufacturer recommends and has designed their tile fit. A PEI 2 tile has been designed for areas where very low traffic and soiling is anticipated. In most cases the aesthetic detailing of these tiles is of prime consideration. You will often find high gloss levels, vibrant coloration and metallic elements in this group of tile. Conversely, a PEI 5 tile has been designed for abusive extra heavy foot traffic. The technical aspects such as surface abrasion resistance will be considered and must be achieved first before aesthetic effects are incorporated.
Any time tile or grout cracks, it’s a SYMPTOM, not a problem, and just repairing the tile or the grout will not take care of it. Until the REAL problem is found and rectified, the same tile or area of grout will continue to crack, no matter how many times you replace it. 99% of the time, it can be attributed to seasonal movement in the structure, either under, or surrounding the tile in question, and the tile needs to be isolated from that movement. Sometimes it can be as simple a fix as adding soft (caulk) joints. Other times, it may be necessary to either add joisting, or beef up the existing joisting to minimize the deflection of the floor. What the fix depends on the individual problem, but in all cases, again, the problem has to be identified and resolved before the cracking will stop.
Only a minimum of effort is required to keep surfaces in good condition, due to the fact that glazed wall tiles and flooring are resistant to dirt and not micro porous.
Ceramic is a natural material with a natural composition which becomes resistant when fired at a very high temperature. This process, however, can cause slight differences in the shades of color and in the actual dimensions of tile between one batch and the next. Therefore, tiles are grouped before packaging according to their shade and their caliber. These are then indicated on the label of every pack.
Yes. They are resistant to household chemicals and bath water additives and to acids and alkalis where specified, with the exception of hydrofluoric acid and compounds of the same.
The joint widths are generally derived from the difference between the nominal size and the work size, or are specified as recommendations in the filing standards.
There are no restrictions on the choice of joint colour for tiles. The right choice of joints is also important for non vitreous, as the joint water may lead to the dispersion of colour pigments from the mortar under the glaze, which will subsequently discolour the tile surface.
We recommend, before fixing, opening and laying out several cartons of tiles to confirm a harmonious and pleasant blend of shades. Also:
