Pressure assist toilet - intermittent weak flushes
Posted by Dylan H. on February 11, 2004 at 11:03:15:
Hello! We installed an American Standard pressure assist toilet about five months ago. Up until now, it has always had a nice powerful flush. Recently, we have experienced a weak flush (water does not fully evacuate the bowl) every now and then. Now, only 1/3 or 1/4 of the flushes are powerful (the rest are weak).

A plumber snaked the toilet, but there were no blockages, and the problem continues. He confirmed that there was not a problem with the main line, as we are experiencing no problems throughout the rest of the house.

This is a brand new toilet; is the Flushmate flushing mechanism failing already? Or does the fact that we still have the occasional strong flush point to something else?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
