Flap on, flap off, the flapper!

Well, it's fixed now. When I installed the new tank kit,
I routed the thin little hose down the overflow pipe.
The hose was so long, that it went down into the water
in the tank and was blowing bubbles. The flapper
was coated in bubbles which lifted it slightly (I'm guessing).
I cut about 5" off the hose so the end is above the water
in the overflow tube and now the toilet works great!
Thanks for the suggestions though.

Indy Jones.
