I'm in North America. I'm having issues with my toilet, and this may be a basic question and I'm not originally from here so not used to how the toilets work here!
When I flush the toilet, it doesn't empty properly. The tank empties out, but not quickly. The water in the bowl doesn't really rise, and it drains slowly, meaning we often have to flush four or five times. At no point is there no water in the bowl.
The odd thing is, and this is what makes me think it may be simple, if I put an object to obstruct the outflow, such as a toilet brush, then the bowl fills up and then completely drains out. (note: the toilet brush is not in any way completely blocking the outflow, it's just partially obstructing it).
Any help would be really appreciated!
