      The toliet in the masterbath has decided that it wishes to only completely flush once every 3rd or 4th time the handle is pressed. The main bath toliet seems to be flushing slower than it has in the past and the downstairs toliet is flushing as it always has. Within the last 6 months I have put in a new fill kit in the master toliet and the main toliet.

      Any suggestions? jerit60@hotmail.com

      First thing is take 5 gal. bucket of water dump in toilet see if it goes down. Make sure water level in tank is up to mark are about 1″ below overflow tube. Make sure 1/4″ hose is in overflow tube, make sure flapper is not leaking test by putting egg dye in tank and see if it leaks through, take a mirrow and look under flushing rinm and make sure holes are all clean, use wire coat hanger to clean then out, make sure jet hole in bottom is clean, after this it should work fine also make sure it is not partly stopped.
