Question about Jacuzzi Bath Maxima EL61 959 White elongated two-piece high-performance toi
The toilet is only about a year old. The water level in the bowl was ok at first. Now for some reason it barely fills the neck. I have to hold the handle down slightly to add more water to the bowl
Step 1:Remove the top lid of the tank, ...carefully, so as not to break the ceramic by dropping it on the floor accidentally. Inside exists a "lever" attached to a "float" acting as a "fulcrum," with the "float" resting on the level of the water in the tank. The more water in the tank, the more water will enter the bowl, at flushing time.
Step 2:The level of water in the tank corresponds to the level of water entering the system upon flushing the commode (bathroom fixture). At the bottom of the tank exists a "flap" type of device (usually). As the water exits the tank into the bowl the flap seals off again, discontinuing the water's entry into the bowl. This should always seal off at the end of a "fllushing cycle." The more water in the tank at the beginning of the flush, the more will enter the bowl.
Step 3:Therefore, raise the arm of the "lever" (sometimes it's a "vertical" post with an "adjustable float" on it; in what case one raises the float on the post, by depressing a "clip" like device on the float itself, sliding it up versus down) by bending the arm upward, ...carefully. The increased water in the "tank" by the above process should solve your problem. Be certain to note whether the "flap" closes prematurely (It shouldn't), adjusting the flap's "chain" (held up by the "handle" itself) should it close prematurely.
Step 4:You may need to tighten the "nut" (fastener) on the "handle" inside the tank as the "chain/flap" may simply be closing prematurely, because it's "loose" (easily tightened by hand at times, versus with a small, adjustable wrench bought at a "hardware store" like "Ace Hardware").
Step 5:The above items (one, versus several of them), should solve your problem.

The toilet you just installed is a 1.6 gallon flush water saver and will not have the same amount of water in it that your old 3.5 gallon toilet had. The water level may not be able to be raised as this is the nature of the beast.
If you can raise the level it will only be a little and will be done in the tank area by increasing the water level in the tank. If the water level in the tank is at the mark provided it a done deal.
The amount of water refilled into the bowl is done by the tube that runs from the fill valve into the overflow tube of the flush valve so if you put more water into the tank more water will be put into the bowl but the bowl will only hold as much water as the trap weir will let it hold (what the factory has sit it at and is not changeable
