Toilet

I've got an Apex 300BHS. Paper seems to be getting stuck just below the flapper. Flushing water does not push the paper through. Any suggestions? Also last night a toothbrush fell straight through as I had the flapper open trying to get the paper through. Is this plumbing a straight shot to the black tank or is the toothbrush now lodged somewhere? I can't see it.

I had a similar episode last weeked on our 320BHDS and I resolved the "issue" with a long stick we found in the woods. With a little poking and pushing I was able to move the "stuff" to the back and right, once the clog was gone it hasn't happened since. It does not appear to be a straight shot to the tank, it would make too much sense to have it that way.

Need to use more water in bowl before and at flushing time............on mine, if you slightly step on flush petal, you can add water and not open valve to flush...suggest not re-using toothbrush.

I agree with the need for more water.

Lots of water required in the bowl, mine is always getting stopped up just below the flapper. Grandkids just can't seem to understand to use less TP!

A little aggravating, but we put NO paper in the toilet. Eliminates most all black tank issues.

Why not.....with the additives that are out there, paper disappears in short order if there's enough water to activate the chemicals.... using a clear elbow and a tank flush, I've not seen any paper problems..... besides, gives you something to watch while the boring drain process is going on.

If your doing number two the bowl should be half full or better before flushing.
