        For some unknown reason, my toilet bowl will not flush properly. The bowl does not fully empty of water when it is flushed. It seems to stop flushing when the water level reaches to about 1/3 the water level in the bowl. It is like a “Lazy Flush”.
        However, the water in the tank is all the way up to the mark and it empties completely when flushed.

        Does anyone have any idea of what might be the problem and would you please give me some advise?

        Thank you for your time and interest…

          Here is list to check
          Make sure tank is up to mark
          Make sure flapper stays up for flush
          Check the underside of rim and cleanout the holes wirh coat hanger wire
          Check hole at bottom and see if hole is clean
          Make sure the 1/4″ tube is in the 1″ overflow pipe that fills up your bowl to make trap seal, if it is low it will not flush right.
          Take a 5 gal. bucket of water and dump in bowl and see if it flushs okay, if so then you need to do some checking and cleaning.
