Check if mechanism that releases water when you flush is tight so no water escapes.
As for water level, you can adjust to less in the tank.

SOURCE: Master bath toilet replaced with a Cimmeron class

Kohler is correct. The most likely cause of this problem is an obstruction in the common vent stack that both toilets share. When you flush the old toilet it need more air to flush and will get it from the easiest source (your new water saver toilet). First adjust the float level in the old toilet so it won't use as much water or just stick a brick in the tank to take up space.Second, run a snake down the vent stack from the roof to check for obstructions. Birds will sometimes nest in there.

SOURCE: Toilet Bowl Water Level Slowly Drops

Check the fill tube in your toilet one easy way to see if it's leaking is get food coloring and pour in your tank to color the water this makes it easier to see and squeeze the tube in the tank when it's full if you see the colored water running down the middle of it you have a winner! if not you can look around for it sometimes the plastic under the flapper gets cracked too

How does the cistern fit onto the toilet and connect to the water outlet. Does it got onto the toilet seat if so how do you connect the water supply?


normally the cistern is mounted to the wall and the pipe to the bowl (pan) is just connected by a rubber grommet at the pan inlet and a threaded nut that compresses a rubber ring in the cistern end
water supply is via a hose from the isolator tap next to the an up to the pipe under the cistern

Adjust water level in in-wall Italian toilet cistern


It could be your flushing mechanism inside the tank that is letting the water in even after the flush. First flush and watch the bottom mechanism whether it blocks completely when water is full in the tank at set level and no more water flows.

Water splashes out of toilet fbowel when flushed


Try lowering the float level. This will reduce the amount of water in the cistern and lower the pressure on the flapper so when you flush the water will not flow as fast into the bowl.

Water running into the bowl after flush and refil


IT SEEMS TO ME THAT THE BALL-**** (FLOAT SWITCH) IN THE CISTERN IS SET TOO HIGH UP. THERE ARE MANY DIFFERENT MODELS BUT ALL SHOULD BE EASILY ADJUSTED. HAVE A LOOK INSIDE THE CISTERN AND ADJUST THE FLOAT SO THAT THE WATER STOPS AT A LOWER LEVEL. IF THE WATER IS CONTINUOSLY FLOWING INTO THE CISTERN WHEN FULL YOU MIGHT NEED A NEW INLET WASHER

Water level is too low to flush solids properly Where is there an adjustment?


That would be in your Cistern - change the level of water being allowed into the bowl by screwing the plastic grub screw on the float valvle in the cistern. There is normally a level indicator on the cistern as to where the water should be sitting.

If this level is correct and the solids still dont flush properly then I am not sure what else you could do. Did this problem always exist, or has it just started? (could indicate that it is gunked up inside if it was OK before)

Good luck

Replaced toilet fill valve - now bowl water level a bit lower


First off,If the air vent was clogged the toilet would back up and overflow and when it did flush, it would make a gurgling sound.
secondly the water level in the bowl is not important as long as it covers the opening,The water is only there to keep out sewer gases so they don't enter your home and the shape of the trap will always maintain the proper amount of water needed to prevent this.
The previous water level may have been due to a partial clog that has since been removed.

Problem overflow valve


Firstly open the top of the Cistern(Where water is held)There are two most common Cistern internals ie;Ball-O-Stop(Ball on a arm connecting to valve). This one is easy, you just bend the arm downwards in the centre so that the ball shuts the valve at a lower level; The other type has a shaft(plastic) with a thread on it, connecting it to a "small bowl" that lifts up as water enters the cistern. To adjust the water level in cistern you have to turn the thread(Shaft) lowering the "small bowl" wich will shut the inlet to the cistern at a lower level. Hope this helps
