Toilet Time - with video


see if these instructions will help remove your flush valve. the toilet is similar but cant tell if its the same flush valve. do the other toilets that work ok have the same flapper as the one that you are having the problem with?
i would adjust the water level in the tank lower and see what happens. it looks like its a little high. its almost to the holes in the back.

Thanks for the PDF. The toilet actually flushes better with the water level that high. When you set the water level to the line, the water in the bowl doesn't flush well at all. I am going to take some needle nose pliers and wedge them down there and use a long screwdriver to twist it out and reseat the flush valve square to see if that helps.

If you decide to rebuild the parts in the tank, maybe try this first. Use a metal cutting sissors/snips and cut out a vertical section of the plastic clyinder. This will negate use of the plastic clyinder.

Then adjust the float level so the flapper drops down and seals just as the water in the bowl empties with the whoosh sound. This should allow the minimum amount of water flushed and still allow a complete flush.
