In response to Re: toilet flushes only second time
You have a toilet with a large bowl,(probably American Standard). The Fluidmaster refills the tank too fast for the refill water to bring the toilet up to its proper level, so when you flush the first flush's water is used to finish filling it to the full line, and then it needs the second flush to actually flush properly.

: i just installed a fluidmaster "overhaul" package and the water is lower than normal in the tank and bowl. that's fine, but the first flush it just fills the bowl close to the previous level (before fluidmaster) but never flushes. if i press the lever to flush again all of the water goes out like is supposed to. repeated again several times and still fills back to low level, never flushes first time but puts more water in bowl and goes down the second time.
: thanks for any help.
: derek
