Re: New construction, toilet flushes strange.
Here's an experiment to try. The next time you flush the toilet, instead of just tripping the handle push it down and hold it or lift the flapper manually. If it flushes properly then the Styrofoam float on the chain may be set too high preventing the flapper from opening all the way and is allowing the flapper to close to soon. The float can be moved up or down.
Another test is to take a bucket and fill it with about 2 gals. of water and dump it rapidly in the toilet, if it flushes OK chances are the problem is not in the drain or vent.
