    I have the same issue. But it's not the same toilet brand ad what not. Not sure what brand it is but I'm having the same problem as well. The water level in the toilet is some times normal in the bowl and sometimes it's VERY low. I check all the time and the level in the back is normal. Also everytime someone uses toilet paper to obviously wipe no matter how much or how little there is always paper left in the bottom. Also when you do anything other than urinate in it you have to flush anywhere from 4-8 times in a row to get everything to go down and even more so sometimes there is a little left over in the very bottom of the bowl. I tried to pour drainer cleaner but it only worked for a day or two and then it's back to square one. My flapper is fine so I know it's not that. Do you think it's possible it could be the plumbing line? It's a rent house so maybe the people before me messed the line up?? If so isn't that the landlords problem and not mine..? Thanks.

It sounds like you have an obstruction in the toilet or in the drain line it feeds into. I would begin with a strong toilet drain cleaner. Be sure to read the directions and select the proper cleaner. If that doesn't work the next step is to pull the toilet off of the floor and phyically check the toilet and the drain beneath it. Before you start this project be sure to turn off the water to the toilet and flush so you don't have too much water to deal with. Also be sure to have a new wax seal on hand to reset the toilet. good luck.

It sounds to me like depending on the flapper installed that your flush arm chain is too long and the flapper is not flipping back far enough to do its job. Take the lid off the tank and rotate the flapper up and back to see if it flushes correctly. if it does then your chain is too long and should be shortened. Hope this helps please rate me

Hi keithn60...

I had the same problem one time with my toilet tank, the answer is to put some silicone on the seal washer between the take and bowl assembly and to use a level on the tank to tighten it just enough to be level and not leak.

My kolher k3497 will not hold water in the bowl. It drops way below the water level.\r\nWhen first flushed it fills correctly but if toilet is not used in four or five days the water level drops way...

It depends on what you mean "not used daily".

I am discounting any possible cracks.

If you only see this after a month or so, the water just evaporates.
If the water level in the bowl drops more often, the different pressure could cause it to exit the normal way. You could try opening and closing a few doors while watching if the water moves at all.

You can have someone flush the 'regular' toilet while you watch the water in the bowl of your guest toilet. There should be no movement at all.

If none of this gives any indications, I guess a plumber might know after inspecting it.

Our toilet doesn't flush well. what can we do? Sometimes we have to flfush three times and use a plunger before the bowl clears.


Im Rossouw

Ajuste the flout so that the tank takes more water

Recomended would be 3 leters so empty the tank throw 3 leters in and mark the level , then adjust the flout so water fills up to that point

For big pot recomend 5 leters of water.

Plz rate my solution thanx

I have a new sterling 1.6gpf toilet can I increase the amount of water in the bowl. Every time or almost everytime, waste sticks to the bowl and I have to brush it loose.

If you raise the water level in the tank it will double flush. I suggest you change out the toilet to a Toto or Kohler class five flush action.

Cadet 3 round bowl toilet not flushing all from bowl

You are probably correct, the water level needs to be raised. There are many different toilet tank systems, but all have some way to control the water level in the tank. Let me know if you need help figuring it out...

P.S. You'll have to take the lid off the tank, first...pardon me if that is too obvious

The water continue to run for a long time

You are probably going to have to replace the fill valve.

There is a chance that adjusting it may work, but it has most likely become worn and partially clogged with hard watrer deposits, dirt, etc.

This will cause it to fill slower, and cause the fill level valve to close slower resulting in higher water level. Eventually it would simply overflow the flush valve tube.

Try adjusting the fill level, but plan on the likelyhood of replacing the fill valve.
