I would check to see if the water holes are somehow blocked or pluged. also check the water level in the tank and make sure that the level is correct ( if not - adjust the water height ).
is this a new toilet ? did the problem just start ?

I have a 4.8 lt flush vitra toilet when i flush hardly any water goes in the bowal to clean the sides of paper

These new style toilets are this way by design. It is designed to use less water, thus helping the. Ecology and your water bill. In effect what is happening is that the trap is lower in the bowl , thus not letting the level of water be as high in the bowl. Now matter if you pour a gallon of water to try to fill it up, it will run out until it reaches that level in the bowl.

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!


The link provides design information and partuculary flapper considerations.

Toilet will not flush out. takes several flushes to get rid of simple toilet paper.

The first thing I would do is to make sure the water level in the tank is where it should be. There should be a mark on the back wall inside the tank to show where water level is supposed to be.You can purchase a cheap toilet auger at most hardware or building centers for under twenty dollars and try to run it down thru the toilet bowl to clean out anything that may have got caught up in the trap. If you can get some strong hydrochloric acid then you can dip and sponge all the water out of the bowl and carefully put about one quart to 1/2 gallon directly into the bowl. Be very careful as this can cause severe acid burns and should only be used in well ventilated areas. This will clean any lime calcium or other minerals out of the trap and should make it flush better. Thank you.

air moving in and out of the pipe with your hand covering the end. If not the vent could be blocked by leaves or animals etc., this vent has to be clear in order for water to drain properly.

Toilet acts like it's getting pluged up as soon as you flush .

use a two gallon buck to flush your toilet - you pour the two gallons directly into the toilet bowl if it flushes fine you need to replace the flush valve, as it is not letting enough water through to properly flush the commode. either rebuild the flush system in the tank or install a fluid master and have a good nights sleep knowing that in the morning you will not leave a suprise for someone else in the family.

I have toilet with no visable clog but when I flush water fills the bowl and overflows? How do I fix

Something is stuck inside of the toilet. About the only way to get some of them out is to take the toilet up. Shut off water to the toilet and flush it one last time.You need to use a plunger and push all the water you can out of the bowl. Remove the bolts that hold it to the floor. Youll have a little left over water you'll have to clean up after this next step so get something to soak up water. It may be easier to remove the tank now than to take a chance on damaging the gaskets. Just going to have to turn the toilet over and over and over and see if something falls out into the bowl. To repair this damage you're going to have to clean off the wax ring (messy Job) and get a new wax ring. They're pretty universal 3 and 4 inch are the same. PUt the wax ring onto the bottom of the toilet then set it back over the bolts that hold it to the floor and tighten it back down. Replace the tank and tank gaskets if you took it off. When I fixed mine I found a AA battery inside. That was all it took to plug it up every time you flushed toilet paper.

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
