Had a plumber out on Thursday to check our backwater valve, while he was
here I showed him our toilet, installed about 12-15 years ago. It had
gotten to the point it was a very slow flush, and if we didn't hold the
flush handle down for two or three seconds it didn't flush. Waste of

deposit, the bowl was relatively clean, we do it at least once a week.
He recommended a new toilet.

flushes great, all is good again. But I have two questions.

it regularly, is there a way to reduce the calcium?
Also, any opinions on the Cadet Pro as a toilet? Seems good so far,
quick flush and all is gone, but it has been less than a day since the
