LeakFrog is the small water alarm with a big job. Behind the cute smile is a brain that knows when you have a water problem. Water causes more damage annually than smoke, and the mold that occurs after a water leak can be deadly.

What Makes a Toilet Bowl Flush?

Step 1 in Flushing Cycle

After flushing the toilet, water enters the bowl by way of the rim holes and jet. Water rises in the bowl and flows over the dam, but no siphon or flushing action has yet started.

Step 2 in Flushing Cycle

As more water enters the bowl, the volume and velocity of water flowing over the dam also increases, creating a curtain of water through the passageway, creating a partial vacuum -- the start of siphonic action. The curtain of water also prevents air from entering the passageway through the outlet.

Step 3 in Flushing Cycle

As incoming water continues to accelerate, more of the air in the down leg of the passageway is displaced.

Step 4 in Flushing Cycle

When the passageway is filled, a good flush or siphon action is created.

Step 5 in Flushing Cycle

As soon as the level of the water in the bowl drops to the level where air is again introduced into the passageway, the siphon is broken.

Step 6 in Flushing Cycle Step 7 in Flushing Cycle

When deep seal of water is not restored with refill water, sewer gas will enter.
