Help please, after looking at the responses to earlier problems of toilet flushing i identified that i needed a new syphon which i duly bought and fitted (close coupled) however after a number of hours of frustration and attaching the handle levers and hook in various positions i am still unable to flush the toilet properly some times it takes two flushes others theree or four, i have checked the stop cock valve and all is ok. if i pull the syphon hook up directly by hand hard then it flushes first time. The water level in the toilet comes to the same level as previous when refilling. i do not have any leaks the unit is a 9.5 inch high syphon from B&Q. i have looked closely at the unit and can not see anytthing faulty with it.
Advise greatly appreciated.
Water level has been tried at same level and higher than before. Tried shortnening the hook did not make any difference, however i have noticed that sometimes the handle does not come back on its own on other times it is slow to come back up so i shall play about with the combination of positions on the plastic lever again to see if that makesa difference, thaks for the response.
