Kohler 81100 Pressure-Clean Flushometer Toilet

My toilet is flushing with progressively less pressure. I have checked, plunged, and snaked the line from the toilet. The problem seems to be the toilet itself. Is there a way to re-pressurize the tank? I HATE my Kohler 81100. And I've lived with this piece of s*** for years, having to flush 2-3 times after each use, because it was so expensive. Now it runs for almost 30 minutes after each use, so I have to use another bathroom altogether.

This type of flush system can be re presurised quickly by holding down the flush handle for about good 2 minutes, then release , wait for the tank to be refilled with water.
Now you can flush away your inner rotting mess down tube good-by...

    My husband followed your suggestion and held down for 3 minutes for good measure and it seemed to do the trick. We'll keep an eye on it. Thanks so much!

You solved the problem yourself! This toilet is junk! I suggest replacing with something that works such as the Toto Drake.

Kohler toilet not flushing completely


You have a partial clog, as if someone tried to flush paper towels or something that shouldn't have gone in the drain.

Try plunging, first, then a toilet snake, or you may have to get a pro to pull the toilet off the floor and run a larger snake if it's further down...

HELP! How do I fix a toilet that will not flush? I suspect the wax seal has not sealed properly due to tile floor being added and raising the level of the toilet. Could this be the problem?


I would have used low power jet wash with pipe cleaning attachment when the toilet was off, I know karcher do a good 1 but there are cheaper alternatives. The last toilet I fitted had a large rubber type seal between the wate outflow pipe and the out pipe of the toilet that fitted over the base of the pipe. I have never seen a wax type seal as you describe, admittedly I have not changed many toilets, but I would have changed the seals when the tiolet was lifted. Hope this helps

Toilet will fush but nothing goes down drain


plunge it first ,, if after this your still having the same problem, you may have to remove the toilet and check to see that nothing has gone into the J trap in the toilet itself, toothpaste caps,, and other objects will allow a snake or plunging to work,, but the problem still happens due to an object that will slide to the side and then go back one the snake has been removed

This is a commercial toilet with a g-2 sloan valve on top. The amount of water dispersed is fine, but there is something wrong with the throat of the toilet, I think. The drain action is somewhat slow...


The blockage MAY be beyond the length of the snake you used. Once I had a blockage that required 145 feet of snake. ALSO the vent could be plugged by any of several things, including wasp nests.

My toilet only a few weeks old. It flushes fine


Sorry, but the only reasonable solution is to assume that the toilet was installed incorrectly and the wax seal misplaced. Or the sewer line is clogged. I would remove the toilet and take a look-see. A plumber could use a snake to check for obstructions.
