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...

My kohler persuade toilet won't fill up


Kenny, the gurgling sound is coming from a stoppage in the air vent located above the toilet on the roof. It has to be open to allow proper drawing of air to pull the contents from the toilet. You also have something lodged in the trap as the water goes out. If a snake doesn't clean it out, then you probably will need to take the toilet up and clean from the bottom side. You can a hose with a sprayer and bllast out from the bottom and most of the time that will free up the blockage.

My flushometer toilet will not stop flushing. The


Try checking the water pressure. If it has dropped too low then the valve will never re-seat properly. Ideally over 90 psi.

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.
