    I have a Mansfield toilet MPP-160.
    It has a 1.6 volume but only flushes 1 gallon, which leads to clogs and frequent plunging. All four toilets do the exact same thing, as measured by a plumber. Flow rate is proper in the pipes, without clogs. How can I get the volume to increase, or do I need to replace all four toilets?

    What holds the water in the tank? Is it a cylinder with a seal at the bottom or is there a flapper attached to a chain?

    Here is a link to Mansfield Plumbing with a phone number. (877) 850-3060

    I have always found Mansfield to have helpful phone contacts.

    You can get info on some parts but didn't find the model MPP-160.

    They well send you to "downloads"; then "price book".

    The only thing I find when Googling MPP-160 is a lot of people selling toilet tank covers for about $150 each. If you replace them, maybe you can sell the parts for enough to buy a new toilet.

    Contacted Mansfield service rep. They are sending me a new float flush valve. Interesting thought to sell the lids. Thanks sooo much!
