Toilet takes more than one flush to empty

Acceptable Performance/Condition

Toilets (water closets) shall flush waste into the drainage system.

Warranty

One-Year  Work and Materials
Drain restrictions due to improper maintenance are excluded from the warranty.

Action

Where defective installation or product is determined repairs shall be made.

Remarks

Newer low-volume toilets use less water to flush waste than older models, making their operation more sensitive to the effects of the:
  • amount of waste
  • amount of paper
  • volume of water in the tank
As a result, multiple flushes may be required.
