inconsistent flush

The toilet in the master bathroom is relatively new. American Standard 1.6. I have replaced the guts twice. Often times it will take 4 to 5 flushes to have the solid waste to down. It usually will just spin around and around. ( sorry, no music happens) When I plunge it goes down rapidly. Then the scene starts all over again.

I've got the same problem with my new American Standard one-piece cadet. I lowered the float cup with the water level adjustment link and it seems to work better, not great, but better.

Re: inconsistent flush

we had new A.S. toilets installed in a new office that did the same thing. The plumber wasn't able to get them to work correctly.
He eventually replaced them w/ Toto toilets that work well.

Re: inconsistent flush

I have an old warhorse A.S. onepiece from 1979.

Lately had the same problem. the flapper wasn't coming up all the way obstructing the vent. I made the chain going to it a notch or two shorter, problem solved. BA woosh as it should .... hope this might help...
