One piece toilets

I inherrited 3 different one piece toilets in my house.

All 3 have different flushing ballcocks and none of the toilets flushes well. All 3 flush, but many times 2 flushes are needed, which is not a good situation, especially if you have a guest.

One is a Briggs 6000, second Briggs is either 7412 or 9000(both numbers are on the tank lid) and last one does not have any ID. It has a push in flush mechanism on the side, rather than a lever type on the front of the tank.

How would you improve flushing of these toilets? I don't even know what are the proper flappers that would stay open longer to increase the amount of water going down.

Where can I get original ballcock parts?

Thank You,
Charles

I would take pictures of your toilet in the interior of the tanks and take them to a well known plumbing supply house in your area to get OEM replacement parts.


Expect to spend money on these one piece toilets.....they are costly.


The flushing issue may or may not correct itself with the interior parts of the toilet replaced. You might be better off hiring a plumber to correctly diagnose what is causing it to flush poorly.....instead of possibly replacing parts that are working fine.
