In response to Re: toilet flush
: Curious why a lot of new toilets I've used require the handle to be held down for a thorough flush due to flush valve prematurely sealing before tank is sufficiently empty to do the job???

Reply:
Holding the handle down while flushing allows more than 1.6 gallons of water to enter the toilet so it actually increases the flush. Some toilet flappers can be adjusted to stay up longer.
