I don't think opening up the wall is an option, or if it is, it's a very expensive one. The property is a condo and not a single family home.

That being said, is the hydro-flush a good option? Or...

Just FYI for everyone in the future. Per Moen, this is NOT covered under their "limited" lifetime warranty; however, as a courtesy, they are sending me a hose-kit.

Thanks.

I think PJmax is right on this one. I took another view at the video and it's pretty clear that the flapper was closing prematurely. Unless something climbed through the siphon jet and into the water...

I'm assuming the removal of the tank from the bowl would be required to fix the ghost/phantom flushing and not the actual slow flushing problem, correct?

In looking at the flapper mechanism more...
