    Exclamation slow flushing

    what makes a toliet not flush everything every time. it seems that i need to hold down the handle for a few secounds so that it does a full flush and even that does not work all the time. i need to keep a plunger on hand all the time

    Low water usage toilets always seem to be a problem. If yours has a chain going to the flapper valve with a Styrofoam float on the chain. There is a retaining clip it looks like a flat piece of plastic on the top and bottom of the float to hold it in place. They have a slit in them and can be slipped off the chain. Remove the bottom one and move it down the chain about " to and inch, slide the float down and then move the top retainer down. This will hold the flapper open longer and dump more water into the bowl. The farther down the chain the more water you will use.
