Question about Home

1 Answer

My toilet is about 6 mos old and from day 1 I have had to flush it as many as 3 times to get rid of all the bowl contents. Doesn't matter whether its a little or a lot in there. I was told there is an adjustment on the top of the tank unit, but I don't have my owners manual. Any suggestions?

SOURCE: have to flush 2 or 3 times to empty toilet bowl

hello, this is a standard toilet you will need to inspect the flapper that is the rubber flap that holds the water up in the tank it works when you pull the lever it pulls the chain upward and lets the water flow if this flapper is old it may not stay up long enough for the water to flow. open the tank top and flush the toilet see if this flapper is staying up long enough and giving the tank enough time to empty if not change this rubber flapper its inexpensive part.
if this is not the reason then you need to adjust your water filler valve there should be a small screw on top of the pivoting float arm
if you have to adjust it for the water limit line inside the tank this will be the proper amount of water needed to flush once completely

also check that the chain lenth on the pull lever is not pulling the flapper down quicker than its supposed to,

try this let me know your results
hope it helps

SOURCE: Master bath toilet replaced with a Cimmeron class

Kohler is correct. The most likely cause of this problem is an obstruction in the common vent stack that both toilets share. When you flush the old toilet it need more air to flush and will get it from the easiest source (your new water saver toilet). First adjust the float level in the old toilet so it won't use as much water or just stick a brick in the tank to take up space.Second, run a snake down the vent stack from the roof to check for obstructions. Birds will sometimes nest in there.

SOURCE: cadet 3 round bowl toilet not flushing all from bowl

You are probably correct, the water level needs to be raised. There are many different toilet tank systems, but all have some way to control the water level in the tank. Let me know if you need help figuring it out...

P.S. You'll have to take the lid off the tank, first...pardon me if that is too obvious

SOURCE: My toilet does not flush properly. It seems to

You might check under the rim of the toilet, there are about 12 little holes that when you flush water comes out to start the most important part of the flush. The swrill, with out it hard to flush. Talk a piece of wire hanger ( I know "NO WIRE HANGERS") and use it to push up into the holes. Hard water deposits sometimes build up there.

Flush's to the front only


Just make sure the back is not clogged.

The bowl doesn't flush from the front part


If a new toilet, the front holes may not have been cast correctly. If an older toilet it is likely mineral buildup has blocked those holes. A mittor and a coat hanger shoudl suffice to open the holes up, use the mirror to see under the rim lip and use the coat hanger to open the holes- you may need to use a larger clip instead depending on the size of the holes.

I think the problem with your toilet bowl is in the tank fitting of it..you better check if the fittings are proprerly working..You also check the flapper and also the fillvalve.
If it is not good already you can replace it by buying the tank fittings at the hardware store..And you better also be check it to your plumber for the second thought..

Typically this will have if the pump is either not vented at all or lack of air flow on the vent pipe. Most of this units have an 1 1/2" vent connection on top of the lid which should be vented to the open air to allow air to flow in and out of the vent pipe at all times. If you already have a vent pipe connected, disconnect it from the top of the lid and leave the vent connection open to the room so air can flow in and out, then flush the toilet, one flush should get rid of all the solids. Also check the rim of the bowl, water should enter evenly all around the rim of the bowl. If you see more water on one side than the other, then could be calcium build up or an obstruction inside the rim of the bowl.
