Complete flush requires holding down the handle?
Posted by Russ on October 01, 2002 at 18:16:08:
To completely flush my 2nd floor toilet I must hold down the handle for about 10 seconds or else the flushing action looses momentum and stops. But, my ground floor toilet doesn't have this problem - it flushes normally with just a quick press of the handle. I checked inside the 2nd floor toilet tank and it looks like the rubber drain stopper is prematurely closing up the drain hole. Is there anything a novice like me can do to correct this inconvenience such replacing a part, etc?
