We are installing a toilet in our new bathroom. The drains were already roughed in when we bought the house.
The drain seems to work fine, and the toilet on its own seems to flush, but when the toilet is properly installed over the drain with a wax seal, it does not flush properly. When we flush the toilet the water empties from the bowl very slowly and doesn't have the proper cyclonic action. We tried running a hose down the toilet drain with the toilet removed and it went down fine. We threw a bucket of water down the drain and it went down fine. We threw a bucket of water into the toilet bowl and the toilet flushed the water down fine. We put the toilet in the shower and flushed it with the tank full of water and it flushed fine. What is going on here?????
