SOURCE: Flush is weakening. Toilet paper won"t flush

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

Try tapping on the opening in the bottom of the toilet, the valve that opens, with a broom handle while flushing to see if it has somhow gotten stuck. There is also a micro switch in the groove that the blade turn knob slids into, this could be bad as well as the pump may have been damaged, it is under the toilet roll holder. Here is a link to their repair site.

If this info was useful a vote with the thumbs up would be greatly appreciated.

If the tank is filling with water to the line level, and the flapper raises, and stays raised until tank is almost empty, when flushed then it must be a clogged line. Try a plunger (toilet snake) and/or call a plumber.

We have the above toilet in our 2006 Jayco Caravan, and we are finding, that it is leaking into our caravan, any ideas and help with possibly repairing this, would be very much appreciated. Thankyou

Jayco caravans have over 100 + service sites around the country and are contactable on 1300 772 153
make a call and talk to a technician about the problem and ask where the nearest authorized service agent is to your present location or how you can fix it yourself if it is outside warranty period
ask for part numbers for any suggest replacement parts as well
any other suggestions would be pointless unless the chemical tank has cracked from time but you will be able to discuss exactly what the results are to give the technician an idea as to the fix
