Are these small bubbles on the base of the toilet tank normal?

I felt the shaking * Country where you felt the earthquake * City/Village where you felt the earthquake * Street or suburb (area) where you felt the earthquake Latitude (area) where you felt the earthquake Longitude (area) where you felt the earthquake Shaking Strength * MMI II (Very weak shaking) ?

People :
Felt by persons at rest, on upper floors or favorably placed.

MMI III (Weak shaking) ?

People :
Felt indoors; hanging objects may swing, vibration similar to passing of light trucks, duration may be estimated, may not be recognized as an earthquake.

MMI IV (Light shaking) ?

People :
Generally noticed indoors but not outside. Light sleepers may be awakened. Vibration may be likened to the passing of heavy traffic, or to the jolt of a heavy object falling or striking the building.
Fittings :
Doors and windows rattle. Glassware and crockery rattle. Liquids in open vessels may be slightly disturbed. Standing motorcars may rock.

Some municipal water supplies are drawn from deep wells; the water in these wells is under quite a bit of pressure. When the pressure is released, dissolved gasses start making bubbles. It's like opening a bottle of pop.

In addition to the bubbles, a new aquarium is likely to have cloudy water and fluctuating pH before the nitrogen cycle is fully established.

For now, you can add plants and operate all of the accessories just as you will when the aquarium has fish. To encourage nitrogen cycle growth, add a tap water conditioner plus one of the starter formulations containing live beneficial bacteria. This and a very small pinch of fish food every other day will grow the nitrogen cycle fairly quickly. Partial water changes are not required during this growth period.

To avoid problems DO NOT add fish until ammonia and nitrite remain at zero and nitrate is below 40 ppm. These measurements mean the nitrogen cycle is working and you can safely add a few fish. Wait a...

Less than two weeks ago the city had someone come out to replace our water meter, they're doing this through out the neighborhood. for what it's worth we we're also having a new furnace installed while the meter was swapped out. While checking things out once the meter was changed I noticed our main floor toilet sounded different filling up after flushing. I took apart the fill valve and hooked it back up and that seemed to fix that. However, since that day and I can't be sure if I just haven't noticed it before, there's been tiny bubbles in the tank and bowl in both the main floor toilet and the one in our basement. When you flush they go away and then reform after a few hours. You can see them attached to the parts inside the tank and around the lip of the hole in the toilet bowl and around the bowl in general where the water is. Can't say that I've noticed any difference in how they flush or fill back up. All the other plumbing from what I can tell runs and drains fine as...

Do you notice that your urine has become very foamy and bubbly lately? After urinating, do you notice a clear layer of bubbles in the toilet bowl, which you never noticed earlier? Is this becoming a cause of concern for you lately because you just can't figure out as to why is this happening. To be really honest with you, noticing foam in your urine once in a while is absolutely normal and there is nothing much to worry about. I mean the sole reason you saw the layer of bubbles on the top is probably because you were holding it in for too long and then you released it with a lot of force. If you urinated normally, then may be your toilet bowl wasn't flushed properly and still had some detergent in it. If you are sure that you flushed your toilet, there was no pressure in the act, and that you have been noticing foam and bubbles in your urine all the time, then it is not normal and there is definitely an underlying cause behind it. But the good news is that most of the time, there...

Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

i dont think you have toilet issue,

Try this. take a large bucket, like a paint or home depot orange bucket. fill 1/2 way...
put some toilet paper in the toilet. Then pour the water in fast, and see how it flushes. it it does a easy flush then your drain is ok. if its slow, you have a drain issue and not the toilet.

if that the case, then goto the toilet, and clean out all of the little holes, that are around the unit.. where you see the water come out. they can be clogged up. a small type wire like a clothes hanger.

I tried to help you. Please help me and Rate/Vote on my response. We take the time to answer your question. take the time to rate us.Thanks and good luck

Why Are There Bubbles on the Water in My Fish Tank?

(The First Tank Guide)

Where do these bubbles come from?

Well, the short and irrefutable answer is "surface tension." However, that's probably not the answer you were looking for...

Sometimes the natural properties of your source water (what impurities are in it) will increase the surface tension of the water. In other cases, over feeding, insufficient filter maintenance, or insufficient water changes can lead to changes in the water that will increase surface tension. As always, I recommend making sure you are providing sufficient water changes and proper filter maintenance and are not over feeding your fish.

Should I be concerned about these bubbles?

The next question you have to answer is, "Are the bubbles a problem?" Some amount of bubbles on the surface of a fish tank are normal, especially in tanks that have air-driven filters, decorative air stones, or have a hanging power...

The toilet tank is where all the major plumbing takes place in a toilet and where most of your toilet repairs will occur.

The purpose of the tank is to contain the water needed to flush the toilet and to conceal the plumbing apparatus that fills and empties the tank. The tank may contain a variety of different parts that need repair.

Before you can begin your repairs, it's important to have a basic understanding of how your toilet tank works.

Toilet Tank Overview

Open any two toilet tanks and... you'll often find very different components inside. Why? Well, new technologies and materials have evolved over the past several decades, but in the end, there are just two major components with several variations.

The two major components are:

The toilet fill valve is the mechanism that fills the tank with water. It is also known as a "ballcock" or a "refill valve." Fill valves comes in four basic variations:

Plunger Type Ballcock (oldest...

I have received this question a couple of times so I thought it was time I wrote a post about it.

Question: Our front bathroom is pretty much used by our 2 boys. My problem is that I cannot get rid of the “boy bathroom smell.” I scrubbed the bathroom last week, and have made a point to wipe things down and have them do it as well. I even replaced the toilet seats. It makes me want to go in there with a pressure washer full of bleach! Any suggestions on how to get rid of the smell?? I always worry guests can smell it too unless I turn the wax burner on.

How to get rid of that “boy bathroom smell” tutorial, here’s what you need:

Step 1: Mix a paste of baking soda and lemon juice. If you don’t have lemon juice you can use water but lemon juice is a great disinfectant and great for removing odors. The consistency of the paste should be about that of pancake mix.

Step 2: Spread the paste all along the bottom of the toilet {where it meets the floor}, the...

If you are dealing with the problem of leaking anus, then you need to ask this question. What type of fluid is leaking from there? This is biggest hint about the cause of leakage.

Types of Leaking Fluids

Mucoid/ Clear Fluid
It could be a transparent looking, slimy, mucoid discharge, coming out of the bowel. This usually indicates that there is some inflammation in your lower bowels. A physical exam with or without colonoscopy may reveal it.

That is, pus containing discharge. This is likely to be due to infection down there in your lower bowels. There may be evident lesions, as are common in tuberculosis or some STDs. Or else, there may be an anal/ perianal abscess.

There may be a tear or a fistula around the anal opening, that is oozing out the clear liquid. Or, there may be an abscess that’s leaking fluid. You need to get examined.

The fluid may be blood stained or you may get frank blood coming out of...
