    Re: Why does the toilet flush every other time?

    The OP didn't say what the time frame was between flush 1 and flush 2 or what it does on the 3rd or 4th flush.

    I doubt he's had a stoppage problem with it otherwise he would have mentioned it.

    I still say flapper problem or wrong flush valve installed

        Every time I work on a toilet, I flush 40 squares of toilet paper three times in a row. Sometimes the 1st flush goes and the second hangs up, that means something is in the trap. It's not a vent issue. Toilets are s-traps and flush great without vents.

          we had the same problem for weeks, seems a rag was found hanging up at the Y in the pipes.
          I have met a lot of stupid professionals.
          I have met a few smart DIYs
          I'd rather be a DIY, as I have already proven to outsmart and outperform most so called professionals.

            I bet money rookie nailed it; bowl not refilling properly.
            This is my reminder to myself that no good will ever come from discussing politics or religion with anyone, ever.
