Insufficient Head

Every so often, my toilet doesn't flush properly. Rather than plunge it, now I wait for the water level to tricke down to normal and then, using a bucket, I pour water into it from about two feet up. And it flushes.

That sort of suggests to me that the toilet tank isn't generating enough head pressure when it flushes.

I had the same problem - the channel between the tank and the bowl gets clogged with calcium deposits. I spent $80 on a new toilet and wow, what a difference.

Sounds to me like you just described the problem the Republican Party has with the Tea Party.

I'm waiting for the old fashioned high tanks to make a comeback. Gravity is useful.
