How to Adjust Urinal Water Flow

Public restrooms aren’t glamorous, but if you own a business with a urinal in the restroom, it’s important to know how to address problems with a urinal when they arise.

One of the most common issues with urinals is the water flow. The water flow should be just right so the level isn’t too low or too high. If the urinal water flow isn’t what it should be, adjusting it is easy. All you need are a few minutes of time and some basic plumbing knowledge. Read on to learn how to adjust the urinal water flow.

How to Adjust Urinal Water Flow

If the Water Level is Too High

Step 1. Locate the water control screw. This is located to the right of the flush valve on the back of the urinal flush handle.

Step 2. Rotate the water control screw. Rotate the water control screw clockwise if the water level is too high. We recommend starting with a ¼-inch turn. Then flush the urinal.

Step 3. Wait for the urinal to fill. Once it is full, make another adjustment if needed. Repeat until the water level is where it should be.

If the Water Level is Too Low

Step 1. Locate the water control screw. This is located to the right of the flush valve on the back of the urinal flush handle.

Step 2. Rotate the water control screw. Rotate the water control screw counterclockwise if the water level is too low. We recommend starting with a ¼-inch turn. Then flush the urinal.

Step 3. Wait for the urinal to fill. Once it is full, make another adjustment if necessary. Repeat until the water level is where it should be.
