    Someday somebody with access to a mass spectrometer may tell us what that is. I suspect silica with some impurities, considering how resistant is to acid.

    AFAIK, nothing short of Pumie Scouring Stick can make a dent in it, and even that doesn't take it right off. I was less vigorous than I could have been. It is a definite violation of the no-abrasives thing. Could be worth considering if you are otherwise considering replacing the toilet. In theory I could replace the bowl on my Vespin, but that is a lot of work.

    I will ask the question about water flow in a different way....
    How long does it take to your Toto to refill after a flush????
    Just want to verify if I don't have any obstruction in my water supply...

    Thx

    Refill time can depend on which fill valve you have, the house pressure of the water and how old the valve is.
    At my sisters place in Eastern Washington, with the alkaline water it was slowing down the refill on her rental cabin. An old Kohler 1.6 that was needing some work. I replaced the fill valve while I was staying here.
    It's hard to measure exactly how much water you're using unless you remove the toilet and set it over a basin so that you can measure after the flush.
    There is water from the tank, and water from the refill valve, and both of those need to be added together.

    Her rental cabin is 200 feet to the right of the main cabin you see.

    Thx Terry... I timed mine and it takes between 3 1/2 to 4 minutes from the flush to refill completed. I find this
    a little long and pretty sure it was much shorter 10 years ago. My pressure being 40-60 Psi.
    According to specs it's the TSU25A.

    Usually after having done some work on some plumbing in the house I have to clean the screens on my other
    faucet in the house as some sediment seems to alter there flow.

    Can these valve be removed and cleaned???? and are they easily available ????
    Regards

    That fill valve has an incoming screen where the water connects.

    well it went from a 0.6GPM to 3.5 and a 3.30 Minutes to 30 seconds, after cleaning the filter of a nearly 10 years old Toto Ultramax..
    Thx a million for your time and advice.
