Under the rim there are ports that water comes out of to cause the swirling motion once flushed. A little trick put some gloves on and you can use a nail or pin to insert in these port's to remove any build up that may be stopping them up.
I hope this will help you out.

How to fix toilet bowl stains


Force the brush tip back and forth, especially along the toilet jets (holes under rim), around the water line and on visible stains. Scrub until stains are gone, reapplying cleaner as necessary, then flush twice. To make your toilet bowl clean again, start with a dry bowl so water won't dilute the cleaner.

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.

Flapper problem


did you have the tank removed from the bowl?
if you did, there is a rather large nut that holds the flush valve to the tank, fairly simple to reinstall.
if you did not have the tank removed from the bowl, and you pulled up on the overflow tube "round white thing" then you probably broke it. you will need to replace the whole flush valve assembly.
you can get one from your local hardware store. you will also need new tank bolts, and a new gasket that goes between the tank and bowl.

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.

I just installed an american standard cadet 3.Home depot rated this toilet as a 10 for flush power. when I flush 1st off the flapper wont stay up on it own long enough to flush,2nd if I hold it open it is...


We have just recently purchased one of the American standard cadet at home depot from a discount flyer and had it for about a day and took it back.

Like you said, Did not notice Any thing like a strong flush.

RECOMENDATION:

Take it back.

Home Depot also sells a Kohler Toilet 1.6 Gallon Flush Install
This is all it said it was. It saves water for sure and has a quick flush.

We liked it so much we purchased two of them because everyone in the house only wanted to using our bathroom.

Hope this tip helps.

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
