In response to Re: fixing a poor flush
The main flushing action is built into the toilet itself. If it flushes poorly, there is a problem with the toilet, but since it could be any number of things causing the problem, you may need a plumber to check it out and see what is wrong with it.

: I have a 50's brick ranch with basement. Both toilets flush slowly. I have snaked both vents, piping, everything. The pipes of both toilets have very shallow 3 foot runs on a slope before they bend down into the waste stack. My question is: would removing this short run bend with an angle pipe that drops almost straight down to the stack joint on the basement floor improve the speed at which the water leaves the toilet? Obviously, removing the bend means having a naked pipe that won't hug the wall or joist.
