    How can I increase the volume of water moving from the tank to the bowl. Put in a Fluidmaster retro kit for a client, they are not happy with how it flushes(American Standard)

    The only ways are to either raise the level of the water, or use a different tank flapper..

    The flapper has a rotating adjustment for volumn.
    It's meant to be all purpose, meaning it can dial down to 1.6 gallons, or be dialed up for more.

    The Adjustable flapper
    is set on #9 from the
    factory. To adjust,
    rotate rubber flapper
    left or right to position
    # in front of chain to
    get desired flush.
    The higher the number
    setting the longer the
    flush. The lower the
    number setting, the
    less water used.
