My toilet cistern fairly recently started getting quite annoying. You go to
flush and the handle just goes down but not a lot happens flushing wise.
You have to "pump" the handle half way down and slowly two or three times
and then it will flush.
I had to replace the tie rod from the handle to the plunger a few years back
as it rusted through and I wonder if this might be relevant to my current
problem. Getting in to the cistern workings is a PITA as it has been boxed
in and is only accessible through a small hatch at the top about 15 inches
wide and four inches deep. This has put me off looking again. Any ideas?
