My toilet does not flush properly. It seems to lack force to flush all of the contents of the bowl. It takes 2 or 3 flushes to get it to flush completely. I have 2 other toilets in the house and don't have this problem. they are not American Standard.

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.

Kohler toilet troubles


The holes around the inside of the bowl may be clogged, try using some CRL and scrubbing the holes with a good stiff brush.

Low water level in bowl after flushing


The small black tube that goes into the overflow is used to fill the bowl after flushing. Would check to make sure that water is coming out of that tube at full force or if its coming out at all.

TOILET WONT FLUSH AWAY PROPERLY


I believe what your plumber was referring to are the flushing orifices. Yes they have changed through the years. Unless you have a pressure assisted toilet, the orifices are what makes it flush, by breaking the trap seal and creating a vacuum. Now that being said you can check to see if this is the problem by filling up a bucket with aprox. 2 gallons of water and dumping it straight into the bowl. It should flush right down with out hesitation. If it does then your orifices are not working properly. If this is a new stool, it is possible it is just a bad mold and should be replaced. I hope this helps. Your new toilet should flush for you.

The bowl is full of water and cannot be snaked by a plumber it will not flush. it is a neorest 600


When you say it does not flush; do you mean it flushes...the water just won't go down (won't empty the contents of the toilet bowl)?

Be more specific.

My toto toilet has both 1.6 gal and 6 gal flushes. the short flush doesn't go down.


I am not a toto expert but i think i understand the gravity control toilet concept.A gravity flush tank type toilet flushes do to the force of water traveling from the tank to the bowl in a small passageway and forces the water in the bowl towards the integral trap in the toilet.In other words the water isnt dumping quick enough or the passageway is restricted.,My guess is the flush valve isnt dumping all at once.

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
