        We’re into our new-to-us home just one month, and have totally reno’d the bathroom. The house was built in 1963. We replaced the toilet, which we hadn’t used (it was pink – blech!), and noted that it took a while to fill but put it down to the water pressure in our area.

        We’re now noticing the toilet doesn’t always flush properly the first time, and the last couple of days have noticed air bubbles when flushing. Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

          Sounds like there is a stoppage either in the toilet are the pipe. Take a 5Gal. bucket of water and dump into the toilet and see if it goes down, if not then the pipe has a stoppage, Check the toilet tank and make sure water level is on the line, check and make sure 1/4′ refill tube is in the 1′ overflow pipe, check flapper is not leaking check under rim of toilet and make sure holes are clean, you might need a sewer cable run through the pipe, let me know.
