Been using this toilet for 10 years but recently the flush isn’t working so well. The button itself seems fine so does the flush mechanism as if I lift the cistern lid up and flush from in there it’s fine. The prob seems to be from the small blue tube that connects the button to the flush which pushes the air thru. Perhaps air is leaking out? I’ve pushed both ends of the tube secure into the button mech and flush mech and it will work a few times and then stop again. Is it just a case of replacing the blue tube? Are they available online? What is it called? Standard size/diameter?
Thanks

dilalio is most likely spot on with the diaphragm however I have had a result before by cutting 5mm off the end of the hose. ;)

I’m pretty sure that’s the same as mine... a grohe button and it does come apart. I’ve changed the bellows in mine twice and have a spare one on hand for next time - a nice chap on the technical desk sent me 3 for nowt when I rang a couple years back :D

I can’t remember exactly how it comes apart but I think it’s the chrome plate that “pops off” when force applied at the right spot!
