    I'm thinking that you might have part of the wax ring blocking the trapway at the flange. I usually take a decent wad of toilet paper and place it in the bowl near the drain, then dump a couple of 5...

    I have the Aquia... so far, no complaints whatsoever. Excellent bowl wash compared to the vastly more expensive Toto Pacifica 1-piece toilets I have at my other residence. More bowl wash than the...

    FWIW, the Korky Quietfill valves can be purchased at Lowe's. Highly recommend. They seem to be able to take quite a bit of grit & junk in the water before fouling. They are also very easy to take...

    1 gallon isn't much water when you think about it -- the flush alone is 1.6. If you've got a 5 gallon bucket, try mostly filling it with water and dumping it down the toilet. It should be able to...

    I'd call up whichever city department it is and request to use the Ultramax, if that's what you want to use. They might be willing to give it to you even if it's not on the list.

    Also, run your finger around the "ring" where the flapper sits. I've seen these get fouled over the years and a good cleaning of them doesn't hurt.

    The shut-off is on the wall wherever you put it, so it is as easily accessible or as hidden as you (and your plumber) desire. The "concealed" part is that the supply line ends up entering the tank...
