Leaky flush

Recently my toilet in my 35rds titanium does not hold water unless i quickly realease the pedal. It leaks slowly until it is empty. If I pay attention and quickly release the foot lever, snapping the thing closed it doesnít leak but anything less than aggressive it leaks. I ran my gloved fingers around the gasket and it seems intact. Itís as if the plastic piece that moves out of the way and then closes isnít fully closing all the time. Any solutions or experience?

Might try spraying it and all the linkages with some silicone lubricant.

I would get some Danco silicone plumbers grease. It's cheap and can be found at most hardware stores. It won't harm the rubber seals.

I had to disassemble mine and replace the flush and siphon valve after 6 months....very hard water here.

BTW, you have two identical posts in this forum.
