Toilets sometimes need multiple flushes plumbing question
Hi,

We moved into a new build a few months back now, one thing we noticed is that we sometimes we need to flush the toilets multiple times to clear, this doesn't seem to relate to the contents of the toilet (could be just a bit of tissue), also it's not isolated to one toilet.

We approached the developer who said this was due to the having to use smaller cisterns as there are new regulations of only 110L per person of water usage, hence reduced flush power.

Does anyone know if that is true? In theory I agree but sometimes we only need to flush once and it's fine, surely if it was a power issue it would always need multiple flushes?

Thanks
