Keep Flushing | Billy the Sunshine Plumber

Have to flush more than once? Billy the Sunshine Plumber can help you with that.

You’d really like to try Goat Yoga today, but, with Thanksgiving just days away, you’re really busy. For one thing, you’re worried about your toilet. Recently, you’ve found that you have to flush two, three, or even more times to refresh the water in the toilet bowl. You’re not sure what’s going on because the toilet used to work just fine.

A range of problems could be the cause of your flushing difficulties. According to, “An incomplete or very weak flush can be caused by, low water level in the tank, the flapper closing too soon, a clog in the trap, sewer pipe or vent pipe. Build up of calcium and other minerals in the rim feed holes can also cause an incomplete or weak flush.”

You can check for yourself if the water is too low or if the chain attached to the flapper is too long – it should generally be no longer than 1/4 inch to 1/2 inch of slack. If it does, the answer is to adjust it.

To check for a clog, suggests, filling “a bucket with one or more gallons of water and quickly pour into the bowl. If the bowl flushes normally then there is no blockage down the trap, sewer pipe or vent pipe that is effecting normal flushing. If it swirls but does not flush or has a weak flush then the clog is in the trap, drain pipe or vent pipe.”

Of course, the easiest way to track down the problem and to fix it is to call a reliable plumbing specialist. You can find a trusted plumbing technician at Billy the Sunshine Plumber.
