|In response to Re: CRANE incomplete flush issue|
If I can replace the flapper, could I get a flush of more than 1.6 gallons?
: : I just purchased a new Crane Galaxy Lite toilet. After installing, it appears that each flush is incomplete. Only half the tank empties before the flapper closes. This is a 1.6 gpf model. (Of course, if I hold down the lever, the entire tank empties.)
: : Is this a "feature" or a defect? Shouldn't the entire tank empty with a flush?
: : I've seen references to what is called an "early-closure" flapper and a "standard" flapper. Is this coming into play here? If so, can I replace the "early-closure" flapper shipped with the toilet with a standard flapper to empty the entire tank?
: : Thanks for your assistance.
