flushing a toilet
 
why do you have to hold the handle down continous whilw flushing a toilet

Usually one of three things:

1) The wrong flapper
2) The chain going from the lever to the flapper is too long
3) The water level in the tank is too low. (should be about 1/2" from the top of the overflow tube)
