Hi. Can anyone help. My toilet isnt sending water to ‘all the way round the rim’ of that makes sense. When i flush. The bit furthest from the tank - water doesnt flush out of the rim there. Iv tried scrubbing. Iv tried uber lime/urine gels from amazon, iv even looked at youtube and figured out how to increase water in tank in case it was just a pressure thing. But nothings helped. Any ideas? Thanks!

If you are in a hard water area could well be limescale. Try something like Kilrock scale remover. The problem will be in blocking the pan outlet while filling the pan to the very brim. Try an old mop in a plastic bag as a bung.

How old is the toilet?
Is it rimless or conventional style with rim?

If it's got a rim it could be that the holes are blocked where the water (should) comes out and may need unblocking with the end of a coat hanger or thin screwdriver or similar.
If you don't want to stick your head upside down in the bowl 🙃,, use a camera to take several photos around the underside of the rim
