We have a problem with one of our toilets.

For some reason, it will not completely flush all of the waste out with the first flush. Often times it needs to be flushed two or three times.

It seems to be that the flow of water at the end of the flush cycle is somewhat short, hence, not allowing the entire contents of waste to be expelled to the sewer.

The toilet in the other bathroom doen't have a problem.

Our water pressure is not lacking.

The water shut-off valve is open all of the way (that is the first thing that I checked).

Any ideas?

If it's like one of my toilets (the newer kind), you may have to hold the lever down until all the water is out of the tank, then release the lever. That seems to help me. If you are on a septic tank, things may just be backing up or the walls of the drain lines may have built up sludge (yuck). If that may be the case, try a product at called SP7 from the 'BioTech Store'. You can order online and have it delivered to your home.
