Flusher chain problems
 
The chain that connects the toilet flusher to the plug will periodicity get wrapped around the plug, or get twisted, or get hooked on the plug in some way preventing a seal. I've purchased a new chain and plug set and I've tried every Jerry rig I can think of including shortening the chain, putting a float on the chain, even tried making it stiff with a straw, but it keeps happening. Any suggestions.

Set the chain 1-3 links from tight, just slightly loose. Cut off excess chain. There is no way it can get tangled up this way.

Had already tried that. I did hear about using fishing line instead of a chain, so I'm giving that a try.
