How to Make Older Commodes Flush Better By Maintenance
There are small holes in the rim of the toilet bowl which allow water to enter the toilet when it is flushed. These holes are angled and cause a circular motions of the water. The circular flow of the water is what helps the toilet to flush completely. Sometimes you might think you have clogged drains when a toilet is not flushing well, (Only when not completely clogged), you can try to make your commodes flush better by cleaning out these holes. The best tool for cleaning out these holes is a small screw. Mineral deposits from the water build up in these holes, slowing down the flow of water, not flow at all or worse causing the water to NOT flow out in a circular motion. As you rod out these holes under the rim where the seat sits, flush the toilet a couple of times to help wash out the minerals you break loose.
If you try the above steps a few times without success, it may be time to contact us to help you or replace the toilet.
