The holes may be clogged and will have to be reamed to clean them.

Kohler flush problems


If it has a power flush (i.e hole about 1" in size opposite side of flushing direction) that hole gets plugged by minerals from the hard water, when it does the flush will be much weaker. To clean it, use a bent coat hanger and ream out the deposits as far in as you can reach. Then turn off the water supply, flush the toilet, then quickly pour one pail full of water into the toilet to drop the water level to minimum. Get "Lime Away" at H/Depot, pour in 1 cup and let sit overnight to eat the remaining hard water deposits from the bowl and power flush. In morning turn on water flush a few times, should wok good as new. Repeat anytime hole starts to get plugged.

Misbehaving toilet


The included link should provide some help in determining your specific design. Depending on your specific design the flapper is a critical component in controlling the amount of water released from the tank during flush.

The appearance of water flushing is in fact created by the siphon action of the water falling down through the drain pipe.

Any restriction in the down stream drain flow can give the appearance of a bad flush. So the problem may not be flush, but a restriction in the drain pipe, or trap-way or outlet.

Using a bucket filled with water pour water quickly into bowl and observe the flush action. Compare the action with another toilet using the bucket. If the flush appears adequate and the water from the tank flows slowly check for salt buildup at the nozzle end of the outlet from the tank into the bowl.

In the design below there is a transfer tube that injects air into the trap. This provides a vacuum to promote the siphon during flush. A leak or failed seal in this transfer tube would result in poor flush.

If drains are slow, particularly if you hear a "gurgling" sound at fixtures during draining, I'd suspect that the building vent system is blocked restricted. A restricted drain is much more likely than a restricted vent. Small children are likely to have placed non biodegradable toys etc into the toilet and they may have gotten trapped. Build up in the vent pipe is also common.
In this example ice is blocking the vent!

I have 5 kohler pressure assist toilets with flushmate 503 series tanks in my home. Several of my bowls have minimal to no bowl rinse. My water pressure is more than adequate. I recently changed a...


There are two holes in the top of the bowl where the tank attaches. As you indicate, one hole delivers water to the jet at the inlet to trap passageway, and another smaller hole to direct water to the rim.

I have seen in some cases the gasket that seals the tank to the bowl block the smaller rim-fed hole. All you need to do is knotch the gasket where the hole is located and re-install the gasket so the knotch is located over the hole. If you have any other questions please call the 800 phone number on top of the Flushmate.

When flushed, not enough water coming from bowl rim holes to wash waste off sides of bowl. Have checked holes around top rim, none are plugged. This has been a problem since purchased one year ago.


Its simple. Check to see if you installed toliet right by removing top of tank and holding handle all the way down. Did it flush from all rim holes? If not, then u will need to get a garden hose with a sprayer to increase pressure and shot high volocity water at rim holes to unblock it. Remember the very front on newer blows do not have holes its a pee shield. Also try doing these other things adjust screw inside tank to make sure the bowl has enough water in it to do a good job. Check the rubber tube going into the hollow pipe and make sure it is going fully inside the plastic pipe that is sticking out of the top of the water in the tank. Also you need to have enough water in tank to allow it to flush good. To increase tank water levels then just unscrew the big plastic ball (or just bend wire to allow more water or bend to allow less water) at top of water in tank. Also increase (max) water pressure at wall to allow it to work at its best. If you have hard water it can cause problems but you say it happened even new, so, you do not have to go in that direction.

After flushing, water level in bowl fills and then slowly drops.


Check to be sure small tube is flowing inside the ovefow tube. This is the water that flushes the rim holes, and refills the bowl. If you don't have flow clean or replace the float valve.

Adjust the float on the Fluid-master a little higher if possible. This should allow more water to enter the bowl after the flush.

We have to flush at least two times before we get a complete flush. any suggestions?


Some of these come with a flapper/flush valve that is made to operate in partial or full flush. Look at the underside of the flapper. Is it a cone shape that has a pencil sized hole in it (or two)? This cone is supposed to keep the flapper afloat during the flush, but the holes allow it to flap back down early. Its a pretty cheezy way to pass the low water requirement, but they get away with it. If you hold the flush handle down for a few seconds (until the tank empties) you will get a full flush, but only when you need it. Or you can just buy a replacement flapper that doesn't have the hole in it. They are cheap and easy to replace, but you will use more water.

The flush does not seem to be strong enough. Waste was stopped up. Is there anything I can do to improve volume elimination?


FIRST CHECK THE WATER LEVEL INSIDE THE TANK. MAKE SURE IT IS INLINE WITH THE MARK INSIDE THE TANK. SECOND, GET A TOILET BRUSH AND SCOUR UNDER THE TOILET RIM AND DOWN THRU THE BOWL AS FAR AS POSSIBLE. USE " Comet Bathroom Cleaner", "Soft Scrub Original", "Bon Ami". BY ENSURING U HAVE THE CORRECT WATER LEVEL AND THE HOLES UNDER THE RIM AND THE BOWL IS CLEAN, THE FLUSH SHOULD IMPROVE. DON'T FORGET TO MAKE SURE THE FLAPPER VAVLE OPENS AS IT SHOULD TO ALLOW WATER TO FLOW INTO THE BOWL EFFICIENTLY.
