Adjust the level in the tank. It should be filled to the level mark on the rear of the tank. Adjustment is by the screw on the float, or lever depending on which country you are. Some tanks are Dual Flush, small flush for waste water (short press), long flush for solids (press and hold). See the link.

SOURCE: have to flush 2 or 3 times to empty toilet bowl

hello, this is a standard toilet you will need to inspect the flapper that is the rubber flap that holds the water up in the tank it works when you pull the lever it pulls the chain upward and lets the water flow if this flapper is old it may not stay up long enough for the water to flow. open the tank top and flush the toilet see if this flapper is staying up long enough and giving the tank enough time to empty if not change this rubber flapper its inexpensive part.
if this is not the reason then you need to adjust your water filler valve there should be a small screw on top of the pivoting float arm
if you have to adjust it for the water limit line inside the tank this will be the proper amount of water needed to flush once completely

also check that the chain lenth on the pull lever is not pulling the flapper down quicker than its supposed to,

try this let me know your results
hope it helps

SOURCE: American Standard Elongated toilet bowl water level slowly drops

The tank holding the proper amount of water is a good sign. The inside of the stool is like the GOOSE NECK under you sink. It always holds water. This may sound like a bit of a hassle to do but if all 3 toilets are identical, here is what you can try if you are a bit handy. Go to the hardware store and purchase 4 toilet wax rings with a plastic flange and a few sets of toilet floor flange bolts(they are cheap and you can always return if not used, as It is better to have xtra parts on hand). Turn off the water supply to the "Mystery Toilet". Leave the tank and everything connected to the stool. Flush the toilet and remove all excess water from the tank and bowl. This can be done with a shop vac, sponge or towel. Disconnect the water supply to the tank. Remove the bolts holding the stool to the floor and carefully remove toilet. Scrap off all the old wax from the floor flange and bottom of stool. Now go and repeat this proceedure to one of the toilets that is working properly. In other words Switch the "Mystery Toilet" with a "Working Toilet" and see how they react. If the working toilet does it in the same bathroom and the "Mystery Toilet" does not do it in the other bathroom then you probably have a VENTING PROBLEM. If the "Mysery Toilet" Does it in the other bathroom then you most likely have a Defective Toilet. This Job is best done by 2 people, as it can sometimes be challenging to center the new wax ring on the toilet flange. Reconnect to the floor and reconnect water supply to the tanks. DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN BOLTS to the floor flange as you may crack the toilet. All drain lines must be vented properly for water to flow. If you are curious check out drain venting on the internet. Also, sometimes a vent can become obstructed with debris, ice, bird nest, etc.. I would 1st check the vent on the roof visually and then have someone flush and listen. If you believe the vent is clear....Then do the toilet switch and go from there.....Hope this helps and Happy Holidays....Joe

SOURCE: Toilet will not flush

You need to replace the fill valve with a oem replacment valve. You need to use toto parts.

SOURCE: 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

1 Answer

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.

Not enough water goes into the Toilet Bowl, The Tank fills up fine but very little goes into the Tank, Terrible Flush


THERE ARE LOTS OF SMALL HOLES WHERE THE WATER COMES OUT OF IN THE RIM OF THE TOILET BOWL, SOME TIMES HARD WATER BLOCKES THES AND THEY NEED TO BE CLEANED. THEY CAN BE CLEANED USING A LARGE SEWING NEEDLE, PUSHING IT INTO THE HOLE UNTIL IT FEELS A BIT BIGGER, YOU WON'T DO DAMAGE AS IT IS VERY HARD METERIAL. a
AFTERWARDS TURN OFF THE WATER, AND LIFT THE VALVE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE TANK AND PUT SOME TOILET ACID INTO IT. THIS WILL ALSO HELP CLEAN THE HOLES.

Low water level in bowl after flushing


The small black tube that goes into the overflow is used to fill the bowl after flushing. Would check to make sure that water is coming out of that tube at full force or if its coming out at all.

Bowl does not fill after flushing


Check the fill line in the tank and make sure it is connected from fill valve to overflow tube. After you flush the toilet it fill's the bowl and tank.

It should be a line about 1/4 ' in size coming from fill valve to overflow tube.

Howto install an auto detergent dispenser onto existing toilet ci


"Fluidmaster" makes a device that clips onto the tank and dispenses a solution into the bowl at each fill after a flush.
It goes inline with the tube runing from the fill valve, and dumps into the flush valve which goes into the bowl when filling.

Most LOWES carries them.
These are better than the ones that release the chemical into the tank because the chemical never has a chance of causing corrosion and failure of the tank to bowl seals.
