Not enough water in the bowl

I know the Toto is a low water toilet but I only get a very small amount of water in the bowl. How can I increase the amount of water in the bowl. In old toilets it was easy,j ust adjust the lever but this seems to be a seal unit that controls the water. Is there away to add a cup or two to the bowl level

The fill valve probably has a float that surrounds the pole that extends from the bottom of the tank. The float usually has a metal rod that comes down with a clip to adjust the float. Move that clip up so that the float sits higher-this should add more water to the tank.

After flushing the toilet the bowl only a small amount of water comes back into bowl. This is a new problem. Could there be a clog?


Is the flapper valve closing sooner then it should? Is the water line (the 1/4" vinyl tube at top of fill valve) going into the tank or into the overflow tube? Did anyone drop anything into the flush valve?

The water level in my Toto Drake toilet bowl is normal right after a flush, but often is very low a few hours later.


The bowl is cracked and is leaking down the drain. You will have to replace it. It may have cracked if the bowl hold-down bolts were overtightened, or the bowl was not able to sit flush (pardon the pun) on the floor. If the bowl rocks when it is first installed, instead of tightening the hold-down bolts, use a couple of tapered shims under the edge of it, then caulk to fill the gap and hide the shims.
Good luck.

Toto Dorian toilet does not flush clean


Don't know if you have calcium build up problems. If you do you could pour a calcium cleaner into the tank to try and clear up the problem. This would be the only way to possibly clean the enclosed area. Good Luck. Jeff

Our Toto bowl does not fill up enough after flushing unless the lever is held down. What do I do to fix it? We have well water and a bit of mineral does build up on the fill tube.


The only adjustment available is to control how full the tank will be for the next flush. The water that runs down into the bowl after flushing comes through the same valve that fills the tank, so the problem (and solution) is entirely with the amount of water that runs into the bowl while the tank is filling. The tank is filling sooner than enough replacement water can run into the bowl. Make sure that the tube (usually a 1/2 inch rubber tube) that runs from the float valve to the pipe that fills the bowl (usually a 1 inch pipe with an open top) is actually delivering all of it's flow down that pipe. If the flow of water being delivered by that tube is slow, you will have to find and eliminate the restriction. You might be able to pull of the rubbber tube off of the float valve and stick a small drill bit (just using your fingers, not a drill) into the fitting where you pulled off the tube.

G-max flushing system is not filling to proper level


Is it not refilling the tank or the bowl? I've got a toto also that is not fully refilling the bowl after each flush. No leaks or other problems. Tank refills fine. Seems that the flapper doesn't float long enough to allow a sufficient amount of water to drain into the bowl before closing. Any ideas?

My toto toilet has both 1.6 gal and 6 gal flushes. the short flush doesn't go down.


I am not a toto expert but i think i understand the gravity control toilet concept.A gravity flush tank type toilet flushes do to the force of water traveling from the tank to the bowl in a small passageway and forces the water in the bowl towards the integral trap in the toilet.In other words the water isnt dumping quick enough or the passageway is restricted.,My guess is the flush valve isnt dumping all at once.

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.

Increasing water in bowl


You really can't because of the design. Any water above the level now will drain off. Sorry

I have a toto one piece toilet and the side walls will not rinse properly. I am always having to brush the bowl . How can I increae the water flow to ensure that enoung water travels throught the rim...


There is no way to increase the water but what you can do is take something that is a bit smaller than the outlet holes and push up and down to insure that there hasn't been any build up. You can also use something that removes lime by removing the flush valve (flapper) and pouring it directly into the hole. It will remove some of it. Let it sit for about 5 minutes and then turn the water back on and rinse several times. You can also increase the water amount in the tank which will get you a longer flow rather than volume.
