      Having lived in older homes, new toilet in current home (probably 6/3L water saver) has a weak toilet flush in comparison. On occasion when there’s extra waste/tissues in pan, it has problems flushing (water builds in pan and doesn’t drain properly). I don’t suspect plumbing as plumber is well experienced/trusted.

      Should I consider a 9/4.5L toilet on my next home? If so, any recommendations on model (p trap)?

      Sam.

      Is the water level in tank up to the mark, is 1/4″ tube in the 1″ overflow pipe, ch3eck the rim in the bowl and see if the hole are clean, is your flapper holing. Take a 5 gal. bucket of water and dump it in bowl and see if it flushes ok. if so then you are not getting enough water to make a good flush, let me know.

      You can always try holding the flush lever down throughout the flush. This gives a better flush.
