SOURCE: Slow Flushing mechanism
Check the angle stop at the wall ( valve) if it more then a few years old the rubber inside sticks try turning it off and on a few times. Well first just make sure its open all the way to start. If both of those do not work It might have a screen at the opening of the preeure mechanism...check that the was no line trash caught in it from turning the water on and off. If none of these things work let me know and we can get more technical in find out whats wrong...heck you could have just gotten a bad one. The Plumbing company I worked for when I lived in houston had the contract with them to do there warranty work and boy did we do a lot of it .

Readjust the float. the longer it is the more leverage the fill water will have on it. good luck. The fill valve does come apart and cleaned if there is debri in it. Turn the water off first:)

Hi I have exactly the same problem, in fact it could have been me writing this - 3 toliets fine, main bathroom hisses. The Geberit flushing ciphen on the left (the smaller one) has been replaced and there is still a problem. If you look carefully,the water level needs to come up over the lip of an opening on the Geberit part and this causes the valve mechanism to shut off and stop the hissing. It is fine for about 40 minutes and then the hissing starts again if you don't flush it. The reason is that the water level has gone down but there is no obvious signs of where the water is going. It could be that the central flush mechanism is leaking slightly. I am going to replace this part next. If I were you I'd see if you are getting any water leakage into the pan when toilet not in use to see if the water level in the cistern is going down James T

most modern toilets do not have an overflow pipe to outside instead they overflow into the bowl itself so have to adjust level so it does not overflow into return
