      Hi Mary Jo,

      You won't be notified of the answer to this question so I thought I'd repeat it here for you. Some of the new toilets have a water saver built in. There are two different types that I'm aware of. One is a push button that has two buttons in one. Push the larger one for general waste and the smaller one for more water force. With the other type, you hold down the handle longer to get the extra water force. These units are designed to save water and money in the long run. I hope this helps. Wishing you the best.

    The newer water saver toilets have a feature that you hold down the handle to release more water from the tank. The regular flush is what you get if you don't hold it down and it saves water. I didn't know our toilet had this feature.

    Hi George,

    Have to tell you I am not a big fan of low flush toilets, you can push the handle down and the wastes are not removed, in other words using less water to do a function that does not happen, end result is double the amount of water! Go figure!

    I do not have the low flush feature and I have the same problem. The flush does not remove the waste and holding down the handle does nothing as no more water flows it just stops. If anyone has a solution to this I would GREATLY appreciate it.
