Your drain may be plugging up, when you flush the 2nd time, the 1st bowl of water did not go all the way down, and the second flush lands on top of it. check drain.

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.

The toilet bowl never stays full of water? It empty's out and if you need to use it for a BM you need to flush it first to get water in the bowl. How do I fix this?

I have the same problem with my Toto TS703. When you flush it, it fills the bowl with water to the rim and stops. Within an hour, the water in the bowl is totally empty except for a small puddle. This has been going on for a few days. It was installed 3 years ago and never had a problem with it until now.

Hello. Your toilet is leaking through the flush valve. This is a serious issue as it will use a huge amount of water every day. Check to be sure there is not an obstruction in the tank and if you can not find one, call the plumber. J.

My Mansfield No. 35 toilet - it flushes fine and then the bowl slowly empties over the day until the bowl is empty. There is no leaking of water and the water is full in the tank. Help??

You are describing a couple of possible problems, neither of which have super easy solutions.
The worst case senario is that there is a crack in the passageway the water travels when it is flushed and just happens to be at a spot that allows the leaky water to go into the floor drain and not on the floor. This is most likely to happen in a brand new toilet situation in which case you take the bowl back to where it was purchased and exchange it.

The most likely scenario however is that there is some form of material caught in the passageway and is "wicking" the water out of the bowl. As water in the bowl disappears from view when you flush, it travels uphill for a moment....over a hump..and then down to continue its journey to the sewer drain. When a piece of material is caught laying over that hump with one end in the bowl water and the other end hanging in empty space, it will draw the water out of the bowl "wick" just like a wick in an oil lamp sucks the oil up through it so the flame continues to burn the oil and not the wick.
Often times just using a plunger vigorously, after a flush and the bowl has refilled, for a couple of minutes will help get the pesky piece over the hump. Otherwise only a special toilet snake (most often called a closet auger) will solve this issue. If you need to get this auger, Do NOT think if it costs more then it must be better. They can range up to $35 or more. You should be able to get this tool, that hopefully you will never have to use again, for between $10 to $15

Handicapp Toilet Bowl does not fill - up as high as regular toilet > very small amount of water in bowl after flushing ie> about 10 cuos of water.. JUST INSTALLED IT NEW YESTERDAY...

Wiith all due respect, the Drake toilet is not a regular toilet and doesn't sound the same as a regular toilet when you flush it. It is in the design that allows it use only 1.5 gpf instead of 3.5 gpf. A rather unique thing is that while it is scientifically calibrated to release 1.5 gpf, it does not empty the tank of approximately 1 gallon of water. Therefore if one feels the need for a little extra umph, simply hold down the flush lever when you flush until the tank is emptied.

When you say it does not flush; do you mean it flushes...the water just won't go down (won't empty the contents of the toilet bowl)?

Be more specific.

It sounds like your toilet is not vented properly. Either there is no vent pipe (which is not likely since it has worked properly for a while), or the vent is plugged. Possibly an animal or bird has gotten into the vent stack going out the roof of your house and plugged it. When the vent is plugged, the water in a trap or toilet bowl will get sucked out as the water from the flush goes down the drain. I would say to have someone check your venting.
Good luck.

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
