My toilet isn't flushing properly. When water from tank enters bowl it rises
to a few inches from top. Over the
course of the next hour or so it slowly drains so that there
is only about 2 or 3 inches at the very bottom of the bowl.Any
I have a house full of kids. My favorite new tool for the last few
years is a plunger that has a 10" handle and a 10" accordian pleated
plunger on the other end. It's called the Master Plunger and it does a
great job. Just fill the huge plunger part up with the water in the
bowl and shoot it down the toilet (Yah my favorite job). Y'know I
caught the 3 year old throwing the free end of the toilet paper roll in
the bowl and flushing the toilet "Wheeeee" that does use up the toilet
paper! I've also come in to find him trying to flush an entire bowl of
paper. No that's not going to work.
Go to the hardware and purchase a Ridgid closet auger. Ask in the plumbing
section. Also ask the clerk for instructions how to use it. It isn't
intutitive, but once you've used one, it's easy enough.
The $8 one is nearly useless.
While the snake is in the bowl, flush once or twice to rinse the snake.
