|In response to Re: replacement toilets, reliability, and water pressure|
My old toilets don't seem to do the job getting everything flushed. My plunger has become my best friend lately. All other drains in the house seem to work fine - all except the toilets. A plumber ran a snake down each of the toilets and found no problem. Could there be a blockage further downstream that is resulting in a sluggish flush, and that might not affect shower and other drains? I'm looking for suggestions - I certainly have no desire to replace 3 toilets.
: I'm curious, what about your old toilets is not performing?? I have 3 30 year old Kohler toilets and have replaced the fill valve in all of them with an American Standard Smart valve, and replaced the flush valve and overflow pipe in one of them. Everything else is porcelin, and should last another 100 years.
: New 1.6 GPF toilets rely on a more complex mechanism to get sufficient water velocity and suction, some have smaller and more convoluted drain passages.
: I don't want to sound too negative, the great majority of the time the new toilets will work almost as well as the old ones. and don't cause
: I think you are trading in a used Lincoln for a new Escort just because its new and shiney. After the shine wears off, you'll wish you had the Lincoln back.
