Does anyone know of a chemical method of
smoothing out the inside of a toilet
trap? I have 3 almost identical toilets
and most suffer from too small opening
through the porcelain. Recently, one
developed the ability to catch toilet paper
and hold it in place. I am guessing the
finish has gotten rough.

I'd like to follow up on my own thread
.... many months later. I added a
piece of plastic pipe to the overflow
tube and increased the water by only
1/2 to 3/4" and the toilet now works
very well. I'm sure the 1.6 GPF is now
a bit higher, however. you can't beat
success. Thanks for the suggestions.
