For the last 2 years, we noticed our toilet has low pressure even though water valve is opened all the way. I don't think there is a clog as after 3 attempts, the water finally drains completely. The water never backs up where I'm concerned toilet will over flow. I've plunged several times just in case.
Our house is almost 10 years old. None of the other washrooms have this issue. Our master bedroom washroom, 2nd floor, sits above the garage. We had our basement done 2 years ago & the basement washroom is located close to the same side as our bedroom. The plumbing work was done by the general contractor, and not a licensed plumber. I pointed this at the time after the contractor did our washroom but he said it has nothing to do with our upstairs washroom. We don't have a shower in the basement.
Do you think they are connected? Had a plumber do some other work and he did a quick check at the basement washroom, said something about the faucet slope pipe wasn't at proper angle. I'm not sure what to do right now and I'm feud up having to flush more than once to get a proper flush.
A slow draining toilet definitely is due to poor grade or a blocked drainage pipe.
A flat pipe with poor grade will take a few flushes to clear solids.
Is the problem toilet in the basement slab. The one that a handyman did?
Get a camera inspection on the slow draining toilet. That will show you exactly what's happening in there.
Thanks Brian. I don't think drainage, don't know if it makes sense but when I hold the flush lever, seems to have more water supply or pressure to flush. I'll call around for pricing for the inspection .
