Hello
Could be a clog blocking the vent.If the vent is blocked then you will get this kind of problem.

Best thing to do is get a plunger and unclog it.Also check that the water supply is full and the tank is full.

How do I fix a toilet that bubbles (small air bubbles from below) and flushes slow, and not completely very often?


Remove the toilet & have a plumbing company power snake
as much of the entire homes waste drain as possible

Maybe clogged inside the home on most runs & also out to
the street,have them do as much as they can, out to the street

Remove all toilets, so they can do good job & you can check &
clean them from under it

Have them run a camera down ALL drains & to the street

When i flushed the toilet the water drained real slow and gurgled through the sink. also during the winter noticed a wet spot on the lawn where the septic tank is. would this be from the septic field


Yes, to your second question. As far as your first, this sounds like your air vent on your roof is clogged. You probably have something in the pipe. This has to be free to allow proper suction on the drain. This is important for air flow and draining. If that doesn't fix it, then there may be a clog in the line itself. Does it drain slow when you flush just water. It is possible you could have flushed something down the toilet that has caught on the trap within the toilet. I believe though the problem is in the air vent on the roof. Let me know back what you fin and we will go from there.

Flapper valve closes too quickly


Fill the breather hole (1/8" hole) inside the flapper.This is designed to let air out so the flapper will sink. Now it floats longer letting in more water. 25%percent more in my case.

It requires so much force to flush my toilet that I have replaced the lever 6 times in the last few years. There is a vaccum like resistance. What can I do?


I am going to take a stab at this with the information you have provided. If you have replaced the flapper around the time this hard flushing deal stated happening I would say the flapper is the wrong kind for this toilet. Flappers are not one fits all some have a bigger air cavity to help with the flushing process. The larger air cavity help buy floating the flapper up after it is started that way. If you didn't change flappers then I would do so at this time making sure you install the right one.

My mothers toilet will not flush, its like theres no suction, when flushed the water in the bowl goes down very slowly but not all the way down to the hole and when it does its very slow weak suction. I...


Try getting a bucket full of water and dumping it pretty rapidly into the toilet bowl. This is essentially what happens when the toilet is flushed normally, but it removes the variable of how the water is being delivered from the tank to the bowl. It should swirl and go charging down the drain, quickly leaving the bowl with very little water. If it does not act that way, then problem is definitely that the drain is obstructed. When you snaked it, you probably used a fairly short snake (about 10 feet?). Try a plunger - use a good one not the kind designed for sinks. Flush multiple times and get vigorous with it. If that doesn't clear it you will have to remove the toilet and use a much larger and longer snake (50 ft or more). good luck, Al K

The lever (handle) to flush the toilet does not rise after it is pushed down, causing the toilet to run. One has to push the lever (handle)up after the down motion to make it function properly.


I had this issue as well with my toilet. My chain was unattached and had been sucked down the drain under the stopper valve preventing the toilet stopper valve from completely closing and causing the water to continually run. After re-attaching the chain I noticed when I flushed the toilet that the handle did not rise again until I manually pushed it up. After readjusting the chain to a tighter position where the chain was not floating at all but instead holding the stopper valve in place I again flushed to check the reaction. This fixed the issue of the water continually running and also the handle not resetting itself properly.

Here is the steps I took to resolve my issue:

Step 1: Remove the lid off of the tank.

Step 2: Check to see if the chain coming from the Toilet Handle to the Stopper Valve is loose, unattached, or broken.

Step 3: Flush the toilet and check to see if the problem has been fixed. If not readjust the chain to a different position and flush again.

Step 4: If all is resolved replace the tank lid.

Other possible things to check:
Check the Float Ball to see if it's Half-way or more submerged in the water. If it is it needs to be replaced.

I hope this helps!

When toilet is flushed the water in the bowl is sucked out


your drain may be plugging up, when you flush the 2nd time, the 1st bowl of water did not go all the way down, and the second flush lands on top of it. check drain.

My Eljer toilet does not always flush completely. It is approximately 20 years old. I don't believe that it is a venting problem. I have dismounted, inspected and remounted the toilet and found nothing...


Not being a plumber by trade I don't want to bad mouth what your plumber had to say but there may be other things to consider.
If the toilet does not flush directly into the main drain there is the possibilty that the coupling between the main drain and the toilet drain is under-sized which could cause reduced water flow and your toilet not flushing completely.

When you flush, the bowl refills and then suddenly empties 90% of the refilled water. Why? This is a toto toilet and this happens almost all the time now.


it sounds like it is not flushing completely at first and then releases and the suction is pulling water out of the bowl. Could be a venting issue or a clog issue that is hindering the proper flushing of the toilet.
