In response to Re: Flushing problem
: About 6 months ago I replaced an old toilet with a new American Standard Cadet 1.6 gpf model. It seemed to work fine until recently. Sometimes I have to flush as many as 3-4 times.
: It seems to me as though some of the holes that direct water around the sides of the bowl are clogged. It makes a lot of bubbling noise and more bubbling, sloshing and more bubbling, then may or may not go down. I was able to change the noise these holes make by sticking a match end into one or two of the holes.

: My question does one clean-out these holes as well as the path around inside the bowl???

: Also, can I purchase a tank(ONLY) with flushmate and use it with the 6 month old bowl I have now??? I'm thinking that the flushmate would keep the holes from clogging up.

: I really like your very informative web site.

You can't use the Flushmate tank with the gravity bowl. Not a good idea.
You can use a coat hanger wire to poke out the holes around the rim.
