Holding down the toiliet handle
Posted by Ryan Howard on October 22, 1999 at 13:07:36:
To flush my toilet, I need to stand there and hold down the handle until it completely flushes. There doesn't seem to be anything mechanically wrong with the inside parts of the toilet. When I push down the handle, the flapper opens all the way up and stays there like it should. The problem is that the flapper shuts before the tank has drained. The flapper just closes too fast. Therefore, I end up with a half flushed toilet and have to flush it again. Do you have any idea why it is doing this?
