In response to Re: CRANE incomplete flush issue
: Thanks for your prompt reply. Since the tank only empties half the contents before the flapper closes, is this a function of the design of the flapper. In other words, is it the flapper design that makes it a 1.6 gpf? It appears there is more than 1.6 gallons in the tank.
: If I can replace the flapper, could I get a flush of more than 1.6 gallons?
If you replace the flapper, it will use more than 1.6 gallons.
Is it not working with the current flapper, or do you just like the idea of more water?
I would be inclined to leave the flapper "as is" and hold the trip lever down when or if needed.
Why increase your water bill for no added gain?
4 out of 5 times, you will need less than 1.6 to clear the bowl. Why use so much water every time?
