Question Have to hold down handle when flushing

I have installed a new toilet and now when I flush, I have to hold down the handle for a few seconds. If I don't hold down the handle, it is a whimpy flush. To completely flush, I hold down the handle for about 3 seconds. Why and more importantly, how do I fix it so I just push the handle down and it completely flushes on its own? What's the trick? Thanks, Cindy

I would say that you will need to adjust your flapper inside the tank . It sounds like you should shorten the chain a few links till the flapper stays in the open position for a good flush.
