    I had to change the trip lever on my Ultramax toilet because the metal had broken off and I couldn't flush it. I went to one of the big box stores and bought a replacement that looks exactly like the toto trip lever...holes are in the same place.
    Now my Toto Ultramax flushes like my old 'regular' toilet. It has no power anymore when flushed. What did I do wrong? How can I correct this? Much thanks, as I miss that powerful flush.

    Make sure you take out most of the slack in the chain.

    A replacement trip lever for the Ultramax is THU-004

    Thank you very much. I changed the position of the chain to the lever and it is much better. I think I may have to shorten the chain a bit more.

    I also want to thank you for all your advice in the past. Because of you, I bought 2 Ultramax Toto toilets and love them. I wish you lived in the NY area!!!!
