Terry,

Thanks. It flushes properly, it's just I like the idea of more water in the flush. I understand exactly what you are saying. I will just get used to the new world. My old toilet obviously used more water in the flush, since it was 10 or more years old. That's what I was used to.

Who would have thought that I would learned so much about flappers today. Life is grand!

Thanks again for your assistance.

Steve

: : 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?

: : Steve

: 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?
