We have fresh water flush toilets. They have a fatal design flaw. There's a solenoid that turns on the fresh water, for the flush. If ANY tiny particle gets into it, it gets suck ON, flooding the toilet. What a stupid design. We finally put a sediment filter into our fresh water system, but had the filter element blow out a few weeks ago. Getting to the solenoid is no easy task. Oh yeah - we replaced it a few months ago, thinking it was failing. At $125, it wasn't the problem.
We also have to Jabsco Quiet lLush Fresh Water Heads. One normal size and one "household" or what I refer to as the big butt seat.

We have experenced the same problem with the Solenoids. I replaced one solenoid, but then realised you can take them apart. If you remove the four screws, you can clean the diaphram. This has worked for me.

The major culprit looks like calcium crystals or something similar and they can be as small as a grain of sand.

Nothing is perfect, but they have done well for the last six years.
