 Slow flushing toilet?
Author: exapprentice30 (MA)

I have a 80s Kohler Well worth toilet on the second floor that flushes slow every 4 to 5 flushes slow or dont flush at all. I have checked the flapper and it is not closing too soon. The drain is 3" copper with a 90 and a 45 or a 22 1/2 connected to a 4" ci stack. The k sink is connected above and is draining good so I know its not clogged. What could be causing this?

Hi EX, Kohler Well worth toilet's from the 80's (very very bad flushers) never worked good to begin with. I would not spend a minute more of your time with it and offer a new toilet. Do the bucket test in front of the customer,5 gallon homer bucket filled 3/4 the way and dump it quickly into the bowl, do this a few times so the customer can see it's clear.
