Why the Water drains out of the bowl once flushed and refilled

Water will pull from your toilet if you drain below your toilet is slightly blocked. Most drains in the USA are about 4 inches wide and will allow quite a large amount of waste to pass through. Any blockage will force more pressure from the drain to the toilet and pull more water from the bowl. Reversed effect you will get bubbles that push through to the inside of your toilet. might try some toilet waste line dissolving cleaner..

Hope this helps FixYa issue - Have a great night..

Toilet water spins but wont drain . not evn when you add water to tank, it just overflows then

if it is a normal toilet / sewerage system, then get yourself some caustic soda ( make up a solution with water) and at the first bend in the sewerage line outside the toilet, remove the inspection cap and pour the solution in the pipe ,replace the cap and wait around 1 hour
remove the cap and use a hose to put extra water in to move the build up
If you have trees in the yard near the sewerage line then forget the caustic soda but get in a plumber with a snake cutter to cut the roots of the tree/s that have blocked the pipe
if it is a septic system then have the tank pumped out
if it is a tank system like in a caravan then empty the tank

Toilet upstairs sometimes drains when the one downstairs is flushed.

It could be a blocked vent.when the downstairs toilet flushes it draws air down the drain with the wastewater. The vent is suppose to supply air to make up for this. If the vent is blocked or there is no vent. Air is drawn from the easiest place ,in this case through the upstairs toilet,drawing the water out of the toilet trap with it. In northern climates the vents sometimes frost shut causing the problem you describe. Hope this helps.

Pump continues to work long after toilet has been flushed as if the saniflo pump is unable to pump all the water out at once like it used to. There is no clog in the vent line, and only a partial block if...

I know nothing about the Saniflo system but I suggest you check in the supplied literature if any routine maintenance is recommended and if so I think it would be wise to do that before looking for further explanations (problems).

Tank empties on flush but bowl doesn't empty. eventually only water very slowly empties from bowl. Brand new

Unless there is some packing material or protective film that you failed to remove it is more likely to be a problem with your home drainage system than the toilet itself.
It could be debris from removal of the previous toilet, a wad of toilet paper or other stuff partly blocking a pipe.
Before doing anything else get outside and open up the man-hole covers. Throw a bucket full of water down and see how quickly it drains away. - if it runs well then the problem is likely to be a blockage somewhere between the toilet and the drain cover.
I would suggest uninstalling the toilet bowl to make access easier then rodding it through with drain rods - you can usually hire these quite cheaply but they are only about £15 - £20 to buy a set in the UK.

Is is possible to make a full flush toilet from an American Standard Cadet 3. The toilet is on a septic system and does not have the power to move waste all the way to the septic tank.

If your toilet is not moving waste all the way to the septic, then there may be a blockage in the waste line or it may not be plumbed correctly. There is no reason why you should not be able to make a full flush on septic. I have live on septic for many years and it should flush as well as living in the city. Is your water supply nice and strong? This sound like a gravity issue with the waste line or a blockage, If you can get under your house and see how the waste line is run, that would be helpful, it should be aimed straight down underneath your toilet and never running uphill at any point on the way to the septic tank. Also is there a vent in the waste line at the proper distance. If not, that could also be the issue. Good luck. P.s. does your septic tank need pumped out?

Toilet wont flush completely. it may take 4 times or more to flush solids. i at first thought this was related to heavy rains we had been receiving in the area over a period of about 4 months. 2 days...

there is no air release. the vent must be clogged somewhere. you can take a hose up there and see if it drains all the way or floods over. since the tub drain has a trap and the toilet itself is a trap, there has to bee a good amount of air pressure coming up without a release. i would say an obstruction. possibly at the junction of the main and the vent.

Toilet does not flush down contents.

This seems to be a case of blockage within the toilet. Check the
Flushholes under the inside-rim of the toilet. they might be partially blocked by debris or deposits. If so, a Wire-Clotheshanger will help.
If the Blockage is in the drain, a Handauger might be helpful to push
blocking objects through or retrieve.
Waterlevel in the Toilet-tank could be too low. It should be about 1"
below the top of the Drainvalve in the middle of the Tank.
