in my opinion the flush ring does little to aid in the flush of the toilet it’s main purpose is to cleanse the bowl, the siphon jet (small dime sized hole bottom of the trap) is actually what causes the toilet to flush by shooting a column of water thru the trap-way making a low pressure zone (bournelli’s principle) carberators work the same way. the primary reason the siphon jet cloggs is failure to flush the toilet! urine solidifies in the jet if it’s left in the bowl to long. flush the toilet, you might be saving water but it will cost you in the long run
