There are few things more exasperating than a weak toilet. A powerful flush gets waste down the first time without you having to do double or triple flushes. If you need to flush your toilet more than once for it to work effectively, there’s probably something interfering with its proper function.

With a few modifications and quality toilet repair parts, you can fix a weak toilet in a surprisingly easy manner. With a couple of quick tweaks, you can save a lot of effort and money in exchange for a little time. Here’s how to do it:

Adjust the Flapper

A recent study from the E.P.A. suggests that a faulty flapper results in the wastage of 200 gallons of water a day. You can opt for the HydroStop Toilet Tank Flapperless Alternative to replace flimsy rubber flappers and create a better seal to eliminate the possibility of leaks. Featuring a patented S.T.O.P. Technology (Safe Toilet Overflow Protection), it helps prevent bowl overflows and the durable stainless steel cable not only last longer but is also less likely to break. If your toilet is clogged, you can simply lift up the handle; this will help the HydroStop to drop and close the flush valve so that the water stops draining from the tank into the bowl.

If your toilet is only being partially flushed or water is being turned off and on periodically even from your bathroom when no one is using it –  replacing the toilet tank ball inside the toilet tank can prove to be the right solution. The universal seal aligns the tank ball and adjusts to any toilet seat fittings and helps to regulate the amount of water that fills the tank after each flush. It is an easy and inexpensive repair project that any do-it-yourself homeowner can do to improve your toilet performance.

Toilet Handle
