Not enough water in the toilet bowl

When the toilet is used and then flushed there is not really enough water to flush and you must wait till it is totally through running and flush again.

    toilet won't flush all the way...


    handles must be held down completely until flush process completes

  • tgosandygoo Jan 18, 2009

    I have the same problem. You must hold handle down. The flapper inside closes to quickly and doesn`t allow a proper full flush of tank. In-turn your bowl will not fill up because the amount of water left in the tank is significant, so the amount of water to fill tank again is limited. This causes little water to return to the bowl. I am considering change the mechanics in tank.

    When flushing the flapper closes to soon . Must hold handle down to complete the flush. My BK 37 has a yellow float on the chain the float seems to small to keep the flapper open for a complete flush. Adjusting the float does nothing.Would adding another float help or maybe replace the plastic flaper with a rubber flapper? HELP PLEASE JOEIII

WellI had the same problem with a client. never seen a stubborn problem like this. I was worried there was no vent on the toilet. My resolution was to get a new flapper from Moen. I replaced the existing flapper that had the yellow float. the float is designed to kepp the chain away from the flap. the existing flap had a vent hole in it. compare it to the new moen unit and you will see what im talking about. After the replacement things were better. Cheers

When I flush the tank only half empties and not enough flushing action is the result as well as the bowl does not adequately fill after the flush.


Hi, if you remove the cistern lid and flush the toilet, look at the float (back left) to see if this is rising freely when the water fills back up. Once the water has stopped filling, check the fill level lines on the large syphon in the middle of cistern. Your model of toilet has an eco flush which will be lowest line to save water, so not as much water will flush out. There is a long plastic screw on the float (back left) which you can turn to adjust the water level to the higher line on syphon (1.6 gallon flush) and turn it slowley till the water level reaches that mark. flush a couple of times to see it is filling back up to the set amount.

Just hooked up new pressure asist tank & bowl,turned on water to it,and it want flush.what i mean about want flush, is it will flush but water does'nt go down,as if it's not staying open long enough.


Sounds like you have a clogged drainline or vent-stack. Fill a large bucket with about three gallons of water and dump it quickly into the bowl. If the drainline/vent is clear, the toilet will "flush" like a gravity toilet and the water will drain from the bowl almost as fast as you can pour it in.

If the water level in the bowl slowly rises (as if it's about to overflow) and then slowly drains, you have a clog somewhere.

All toilets, regardless of their flushing mechanism, require a clear, unoibstructed drain/waste/vent system to extract waste.

If the toilet "flushes" with the bucket of water, you may want to call Flushmate tech support (the number is on top of the tank) or check out the installation and troubleshooting videos at howto.flushmate.com.

Hope this helps.

My toto toilet has both 1.6 gal and 6 gal flushes. the short flush doesn't go down.


I am not a toto expert but i think i understand the gravity control toilet concept.A gravity flush tank type toilet flushes do to the force of water traveling from the tank to the bowl in a small passageway and forces the water in the bowl towards the integral trap in the toilet.In other words the water isnt dumping quick enough or the passageway is restricted.,My guess is the flush valve isnt dumping all at once.
