Seems my daughter clogs the toilet every time she goes. Of course,
you say "tell her to take a stool softener", and you get "Yeah, dad,
like that's going to happen!!!".
Any experience or comments about super flush devices out there? Any
help and/or suggestions will be appreciated.
I have the same problem (though usually caused by me). We recently purchased
a house that has new plumbing & toilets, but perhaps the water conserving
kind. Ironically, I have to flush 2-3 times every time it plugs up so I
doubt we're conserving much water. This probably happens at least 50% of the
time (when going #2) so its a real hassle, not to mention embarassing for
guests. Would also appreciate any help.
Depending on when they were bought and manufactured.
Kohler, AS people would admit that original low flow
designs were pretty bad. They did not have a lab, and no
testing was performed.
Now they saying gov should lower to limit to 1Gal,
On the new house we have all low water use 1.7gpfs,
and they work much better than 3.5 we had on the old
Don't buy $49 models like Menards they don't work.
Bush toilet models just make sounds like:
mmmm, a-a-a, NUKULER and put you in the deep debt.
You have been brainwashed by another agency of government working at
cross-purposes to the "save water" branch.
The health minions in the feral government demand that you eat (at least)
five servings of fruits and vegetables every day. These "things" - they are
not "food," they are what "food" eats - generate "floaters." Real food
Now the fix is simple: let the fruits and nuts eat the fruits and nuts. You
stick to RED MEAT (yum). Your problems with the toilet will disappear.
First remember that most modern toilets have two flush modes. The
single flush and a heaver duty hold the handle down flush.
When shopping look for fully glazed traps and at least a 2 inch trap,
larger is better.
AS Cadet seems to be the model of choice based on price and problems.
Note there are a number of different models including one power flush
(noisy) but effective version of the Cadet.
New lowflush toilets? Put in for house resale? Is that a requirement
in NJ like in CA? I'll bet they bought the cheapest $49 lowflo toilets
which are just old style toilets with a smaller tank. Rip them out, go
get you the good $300 lowflo toilets.
Naw, them GW Bush models'll just put you deep in debt. Hell, might
even kill one of yer kids. Best bet is to try and find one of them
Badnarik models, they're hard to find but if you do find one you can
smoke pot while sittin' on it.
What if it's just one big sinker? Ever have one of those? After a
couple/three cheeseburgers? Just one big solid turd? Or maybe one real
big one first and a then couple of smaller ones? What then? Just go
ahead and clog the toilet? Let it soak for a couple of days in the
hopes that it will soften up? Flush, or chop first and then flush? The
op's daughter won't eat right, what makes you think she'll clean up
The Toto models with "G Max" have a trap considerably bigger than the norm,
and a rather impressive flushing action. those modeals are allegedly
equivalent to a traditional pressure-assist system.
I've been quite pleased with the Toto "Ultramax" model I've had for about 3
years. Certainly on the pricey side compared to the builders' specials, but I
guess ya' gets what ya' pays for. The couple of times I've had a problem with
the mechanism, the tech support folks talked me through the issues without
