In response to Re: Double Flush Normal ?
When you say multiple flushes do you mean that during the course of one handle pull that the bowl will fill and empty multiple times? In other words, there isn't a continuous flow? Do you know how much water is used in the flush? It sounds like there may be either a partial clog in the waste line or a syphon breakdown during the flush. It also sounds like a big water user.

: I live in a 1937 house and I suspect the toilet in the main bathroom is the original, it is a Bolton model K4230PT. I have lived in this house only 1-1/2 years and just recently noticed that this toilet flushes at least twice (and sometimes three) times whenever the lever is pushed. I can't recall if its always done this. I recently pulled it up and replaced all internals, but it still multi-flushes. When the flush valve is lifted up it does not go down until almost all of the water is out of the tank. Is this normal for some older toilets? If not what could possibly be causing this?
