    I spent a good deal of money to get an Eljer toilet that was "guarnteed to flush every time", because I was having issues every week or so that caused me to have to get out the plunger. I found this rather annoying and disgusting. Well, I'm happy to say my new toilet does indeed flush everytime, and for that I am gratefull. But now I have a new issue that also disgusts me. The water level is much lower than my last toilet. I do not believe anything is broken on the toilet, I just needed to find the adjustment for the water level. The reason I say "disgusted" is that the water does not completely cover the "material" that eventually gets flushed. Well, when such material is in the air as opposed to under water, where I think we can all agree is where it belongs, it reacts to that air and causes horrible odors. This should not be surprising. If you walked into a room and found such material on the floor, you would not be surprised that the odor would be rather horrible. So, it should be no surprise that having some of what should be under water, not, would be an issue. I clicked on "Ask for Clarification" because I used your suggestion and found after adding water to the bowl, the level simply went back down to where it was. I need to know if there really is no adjustment of the water level possible. If so, I don't know what I am going to do, but I am in disbelief that by buying the best, I have put myself, my family, and my guests in such a disgusting situation. How could they make it this way on purpose? Leaving the any material exposed reminds me of an outhouse. Is this the intention? Did I spend this much money to have an outhouse. By the way, I am 170 pounds, a rather average sized person, lest anyone think I am unusually large. It's not me, it's just that there's not enough water in the darn bowl.

The water level in the bowl is determined by the built in trap in the back of the bowl. Water is allowed to enter the toilet and it then "over flows" the p trap in the back when flushed. Once it's flowing, it syphons the water out of the bowl. While the tank is re-filling, a small portion of water should be running down the overflow from the small hose clamped onto the overflow This rinses the inside of the bowl, as well as helps-refill the bowl. Be sure that hose is directed inside the overflow tube. To see what the max water level in the bowl can be, add some water from a cup or glass. Once it's full you can keep adding and it won't get any higher. This will be the max level you can expect.

We bought an elongated smooth sided Jacuzzi toilet and it is leaking clean water from the back toward the wall

Could be a few issue. First check at the back where the tank sits on the bowl, reach underneath or look with a flashlight if you can to see between the tank and the bow, pay attention to the bolts in particular, if you see any water dripping down the bolts or between the tank and the bowl, the tank to bowl gasket ir bowl gasket bolts are leaking, and need to be replaced. Also look inside the bowl when its flushing, no water should be splashing up over the edge of the tank. Also inspect underneath the fill valve that gasket could also be leaking, or the supply line could be leaking.

Jacuzzi toilet does not fill enough water in the bowl

Check to see if there is not a clog in the trap. This could keep your bowl from filling up. Also check the flapper and see if it is staying afloat in the tank long enough during the flush. Either of these could be the cause here.

Toilet is very slow filling tank with water to flush

look inside the reservoir. There is a cylinder sticking up at about water level or above. That cylinder should have a small hose (tube) going into the top of it attached with a small clip. This helps fill the bowl with water. These come off from time to time and just fall down into the water and dont do what they are supposed to do. Hopefully this is the problem.

I am looking for a gasket between the tank and bowl which is leaking. I only have the number stamped on the inside of the tank which is BN30 BN31. Can you tell from this lid number which model toilet...

It looks like you have a Jacuzzi Perfecta.
This model came in two flavors:

  • the 300 MaP flush performance (with an elongated bowl, #BN30959), and
  • the 350 MaP (with a rounded bowl, #BN31959).
Both use the BN30 BN31 tank.

If you have trouble finding a gasket, you might consider using plumbers' putty.
(Sometimes, the old ways are the best...)

Are these toilets not suppose to have much water in the toilet? I'm not talking about the supply tank.

Yes, many of the new low water usage toilets carry very little water in the bowl....
they still work well though...
