    Re: Alrighty then, ANOTHER Quiz

    Does it complete a flush cycle or just swirl-rise-lower?

    And does it do it every time?

      It would not take all of the waste out. Sometimes it would seem ok but most of the time not. The toilet used to work fine so it wasn't a manufacturing problem.

      Sorry folks, my super high speed DSL is slower than a Midtown Memphis sewer after two days of rain.

        Nothing in the toilet trapway, holes, or jet. No vent problem. No flush seal problem. No flush valve problem. No pressure problem.

        You got me Tim!

        I did once see a comb act like a restricting check valve but you would have found that.

              And while you're here, let me ask something that has always puzzled me, Mrs. Seat Down. It seems to me the gentler sex would prefer the seat left up so they would know we men lifted it when doing our, uh, standing business.

                I actually think it is the Ridgid site.

                So is the toilet white or a pretty color?

                Original ballcock or after market?

                Original flush valve or after market?

                It is a 3 1/2 gpf since it is 20 years old, right?

                Is it a toilet issue or plumbing issue?

                  how about the flapper not allowing enough water to complete the flush cycle.

                    Water level in tank is good. White. Ballcock probably original but doesn't matter in this quiz. Original flush valve. 3-1/2 gal yes. Toilet issue, yes.

                        Just had an idea Tim. We should get together and make one of those "20 Question" balls for Plumbers.

                        Might be embarrassing though to tell a customer "I don't know, let me check my ball."

                          Shouldn't you be in bed? You're eastern time aren't you? Do you want me to pm the answer to you?

                            If a tilt valve, too large a bleed hole in the tilt valve mechanism causing too quick of a flush.

                            You can put 2 cents inside the tilt valve cup-to create counterweights!

                              That's a GREAT guess. But the mechanism is not the answer here.
