The water line in the toilet bowl should be lowered, and there are at least 4 different ways to accomplish this. A disinfectant or detergent cleaner or bowl cleaner should be applied to a bowl swab and starting under the rim working down, cleaning the bowl. Disinfectant/detergent cleaner should be applied to the outside surfaces including the handle and allowed to remain wet for ten minutes for a total kill of bacteria, fungus and virus. Flush the toilet, and rinse the outer surfaces. A phosphoric bowl cleaner can be used in toilets with hard water or in extreme hard water conditions where the toilet is not cleaned often a hydrogen chloride based (muratic acid) can be used. Be care of the "kick back fumes" and dripping it on nylon clothing and carpeting. Recommended Materials - # Rubber gloves or vinyl work gloves (type worn to wash dishes) # Eye Protection (usually required in cleaning toilets outside the home) # Disinfectant/detergent/cleaner (any chemical that calls itself a disinfectant and has an E.P.A. number on the label to back-up the claim of being a disinfectant) # Disposable toweling or launderable cloth # Bowl Swab (12-inch long plastic handle with a bunny tail material at the end approximately 4-inches in diameter); Optional Materials - Acid based bowl cleaner depending on the hardness of water and/or frequency of cleaning: # citric acid - safest to use but slowest to remove mineral deposits # phosphoric acid - safer than hydrochloric acid, won´t smoke chrome. (Hydrochloric acid is harsh, use only on porcelain with extreme care and only on the worst mineral build-ups. Note: hydrochloric bowl cleaner will "melt" nylon carpet and nylon hose, so be careful.) # Pumice stick (an alternative to harsh bowl cleaners for removing mineral stains and deposits)

How to fix a leaky toilet

    1. Turn off the water at the shutoff valve, flush the toilet and hold down the handle. There may be a little water left in the bottom of the tank, but don't worry about it. Wipe the flapper seat with a clean cloth to make sure it's free of debris, and check it for cracks or splits (Image 1).

What are the most common venting problems for toilets?

What all that means is the sewage pipe going to the street is getting clogged so either snake it with 50 foot snake or go buy so Drain-O (60 ounce bottle costs about $9) and pour 1/5 in toilet and wait 10 minutes then pout 1/5 in Bathroom sink & wait 10 minutes. Keep do that until 60 ounce bottle is empty. Let this stay in pipes for couple hours and your toilet will double flush now its clean with no corrosion, hair, cooking oil, and other debris.

You should be able to remove an old worn out, toilet seat and replace. Usually its two Plastic Toilet Seat Bolts and two plastic wing nuts under the bowl. Most of them are hidden in a Plastic Cap where the seat attaches to the Toilet Base. You unsnap the caps to see the bolts. Make sure to hold the Wing Nuts underneath or they might just spin.

If its a matter of cleaning something because of neglect. I have recently started using new products that I purchased from with great success!

I clean the entire bath room with three products and water!toilet-seat-looks-terrible-underside-2a0cfbtak4y3luwyen1qnfe3-5-0.jpg
Dirty to Clean its simple fast and effective.

The products are: my EnviroCloth, Blue Diamond Cleaner and my toilet brush. If you are like me, I never heard of any of this until I saw a demonstration November 2014 by this person who's website I posted above in this response.

Toilet bowl does not properly clean when flushed, leaving toilet paper that does not fall directly into water; only happens at front of bowl and nowhere else

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 ?

Sands enter the tube (which is suply the water) inside my toto toilet tank. how am i suppose to clean it?

I would suggest an aquarium cleaning tool, there are vacs made to clean inside a tank below the water level. A wet dry vac may also be of assistance.
This is the a symptom of a greater issue IF its comeing from the water intake (and not a weird freak accident or toddler induced manner) To further prevent the isse i would use a filter in the tank, nylons/pantyhose will catch sediment and allow water to pass.

A fairly easy ( but messy ) fix - get a replacement tank to bowl gasket and bolt kit, shut off water supply, drain tank, remove bolts ( you might have to cut, depending on your water source and minerals in your water). Remove old gasket and clean surface with 00 grade steel wool. Replace gasket, install new bolts, remount tank.
Good luck!!

Kohler will try to sell you $46 anchor bolt kit 84999 & also there special tool. You should expect that for a $400 toilet.

Try this instead:
1. Use 1/8" drill bit and drill and drill around the bolt until the anchor material can be removed.
2. Carefully clean hole with 11/32 drill to remove all remaining acchor material.
3. Go local hardware store & buy a 10 - 32 3/8"X3/4" rubber expansion plug (make certain threaded part is brass & has shoulder on 1 end), a 10 - 32X1.5" Phillips bolt and couple of small fender washers fit the seat.(about $4 for 2)
4. Assemble carefully not to over tighten and crack the porcelain.

Hope it helps
