Improved toilet flushing?

We have a good quality china toilet, however the flushing mechanism leaves much to be desired. The enclosed photo shows that all of the flushing jets point somewhat downward, meaning that no water travels around the rim of the toilet. As a result, the farther end of the toilet does not get properly rinsed. It seems to me that if the plastic jet was properly shaped, the water would travel around the rim better, and rinse the bowl better. Has anyone made any kind of modifications to a toilet of this type to make it operate better?

we keep a gallon jug in the bathroom. after doing our business, we use that to rinse our bowl. and since we dry camp a lot, this helps us conserve the water in our fresh water tank

Also, put more water in the bowl before using it, not sure cure, but it sure helps.

Minimum water for #1

MAX water for #2

Some folks suggest laying line of TP in 'X' pattern before going #2


I just grab a wad of TP and wipe the bowl as needed
Then WASH My Hands
*do that at home and when visiting at friends house

Thanks all. I like billyb's idea of drilling more holes in the flush head. Maybe if combined with partially restricting or blocking the jets pointing straight down, it would increase the flow to the newly drilled side jets.

I bought a 100% Plastic toilet brush, no steel/ no rust, and use as needed, store in a 3# plastic coffee can w/ hole cut in lid to keep upright/ balanced, stored beside toilet.
