Now What????

OK, so I was, and still am, so glad and proud to have gotten the toilet of my dreams.... ref: Toilet Probs- What would you do?

Problem is, the sprayer dribbles. Not all the time. But enough, when flushing (and not with every flush) to cause an inconvenient puddle on the floor occasionally.

Solution? Well, the nozzle is attached via its holder to the wall at about the same height as the fitting to the toilet is. Thinking to move it up- maybe gravity has something to do with it? Also, the toilet is lag bolted to the floor as there is a bit of unevenness and an ever-so-slight rocking when in use, but enough to cause a wee bit of gurgling or dripping noises, not directly from the sprayer. No leaks anywhere above or below, except this annoying dribble...

What say you?

I have come to rely on the kindness of strangers....

I would just add an inline ball valve where the sprayer hose attaches and leave it off until you need to use it. not the most convenient, but would stop the leaking and any accidental sprays too.

Repairing a Thetford Aqua Magic V

I installed a shutoff valve and keep a small plastic trash can with air freshener and such directly under it. Pressure fluctuations can cause the hand wand valve to "flutter" and release a few drops of water.

Not much you can do about that.

Oh, I left the blue removal tool in place so dis-assembly would be a snap if the toilet needed to be removed again.
