Why Your Toilet Isn't Flushing!

Not all toilets have the same flushing power. Older models may require more manual effort to get them flushed and clear of waste, while newer models usually use a pressurized tank to help push the water out and down the drain. If your toilet is having trouble flushing properly, you'll want to check a few things before calling a plumber:

1. Check that the water level in the toilet's tank is at an appropriate height. The ideal level should be about an inch below the top of the overflow tube. If it's too low, your flush will be weak or incomplete - try adjusting it to get it back up again.

2. Make sure there isn't any blockage preventing water from entering the bowl. This could be something stuck in the trap, a clog in the pipe or a buildup of mineral deposits on the valves. If you can't see anything, try using a plunger to try and dislodge it.

3. Check the flush valve and flapper for any signs of wear or damage. These two parts are responsible for controlling how much water is released when you flush - if they're not working properly, it might result in an incomplete flush. Replacing them should restore your toilet to normal functioning again.

If none of these steps solve your problem, then you may need to call a plumber to investigate further and possibly replace some more components inside your toilet tank.
