Easy, reach in and grab it. Can you see it or has it gone out of sight? If it is out of site, does the toilet flush OK? It might be gone for good. If you think it is stuck in there, a coat hanger or other wire type hook might grab it, bend it around a little and go fishing. It should be right at the first bend in the trap, If you can't find anything and the toilet flushes OK, I would say good bye to it and hope it is gone for good. A little hand is handy to have in these cases, got any kids? The water is clean, if it has been flushed a few times. Hope this helps.

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 tube that goes from the fill valve to the fill tube may not be installed correctly. the water must be going in the tube and not the tank. also it is a water conserving toilet so it uses less water also it is a comfort height toilet and to make it taller the bowl is extended so the water may seem even more shallow.

There is no easy answer for your problem other than the flapper is not holding the water in the tank It is the only thing that keeps the water from going into the bowl when a toilet is not in use...on ANY toilet. Not all flappers are of the same quality, so be sure to replace it with the EXACT style as came with the toilet.

The refill water in the toilet bowl is low ever since installation. How can I add more water?


Most toilets use less bowl water. But to check yours, be sure that the little plastic refill hose goes down the overflow tube.

After flushing, water level in bowl fills and then slowly drops.


Check to be sure small tube is flowing inside the ovefow tube. This is the water that flushes the rim holes, and refills the bowl. If you don't have flow clean or replace the float valve.

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.

Not enough water in the bowl after flushing


I don't know what kind of toilet you have, but if it has a tank, then probably the tube that squirts water down the pipe into the bowl has come out. Take the top off the tank and as you watch, flush the toilet and make sure water is going thru the tube down into the pipe. good luck

Toilet Bowl Water Level Slowly Drops


Check the fill tube in your toilet one easy way to see if it's leaking is get food coloring and pour in your tank to color the water this makes it easier to see and squeeze the tube in the tank when it's full if you see the colored water running down the middle of it you have a winner! if not you can look around for it sometimes the plastic under the flapper gets cracked too

Cimmaron one piece elongated doesn't have enough water in BOWL.


Make a small mark with a pencil or marker that can be erased of were your water line is in your bowl. Pour some water from a bucket into the bowl SLOWLY and see if the water line rises or drops back down to your original mark. If it drop back to the original mark, then that is the way the toilet was made. You won't be able to do anything about it. If it rises and stays at a higher level, then you have a problem with the fill tube in the tank. You will need to call a Pro!
