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?

    Have you had this problem for a while or is this something new?
    If it is something new did you have a plug up problem that someone might have used a auger ti fix?

    Be happening all along. Brand new toilet with new fixings inside. Been waiting for the land lady to fix it but she is disabled and not sure what to do, I thought it might be something I could do. Toilet installed about 4 months ago.

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.

Why doesn't the waste go all the way down? It takes several flushes.


Welcome to our new world of water conservation. If you have a toilet that isn't newer....you have something in your trap weir. Or your flapper is malfunctioning. Or your float valve isn't filling your tank correctly. Or your bowl scouring ports could be clogged. There are sooo many things that could cause this....
.New toilets do this because their design to use less water has reached the point of no-longer working to clear the bowl contents. Plain and simple. It has became the norm to flush once for #1's and flush (how ever many it takes to flush all waste) for #2's.
Back to old styles...You can remove the tank top and inspect the water level in the tank(should be about a 1/2" below overflow tube when full), inspect the flapper(flush the toilet and see if your flapper is staying up long enough to allow enough water to enter the bowl to cause a syphon action that ends with a suction sound and complete emptying of the water from the bowl), flush your toilet and look in the bowl to see if the water spraying from your rim is adequately dispensing water to scour the sides of the bowl, and also look at the jet that shoots water from the bottom of the bowl...aimed toward the outlet portion of the very bottom of the interior bowl. This jet is what starts the syphon action that empties your bowl. If you have something stuck in your trap weir....you probably need to call your Plumber to auger the object out or break it down to a size that will pass into the sewer.
The small ports that spray your sides can be cleared with a 3/16" stiff nylon brush...the jet down below can be cleared with a 1" stiff nylon brush. Flapper malfunction is repaired by replacing the flapper. Incorrect water level in the tank can be fixed by adjusting the valve float. but chances are that if it is all of a sudden malfunctioning...it probably needs to be replaced...good luck and always know how to turn your water off before starting work on your plumbing.
Be gentle with the parts inside your toilet tank. Using a calcium remover when clearing bowl inner ports and jets will help tremendously....but be certain to read the container and follow all handling/use instructions you read. Be careful.....Nick

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.

Weak dual flush does not empty the toilet bowl.


well, yes... but apart from providing you with a forum in which to vent your frustration I'm not sure how you think we might help. I have the same problem with a dual flush cistern, but in my case I know that the root of the problem lies in the fact that the soil pipe leading from the bowl has insufficient fall (because the previous owner of my house moved the toilet further from the down pipe). Maybe something like this is contributing to your problem too?

The bowl is full of water and cannot be snaked by a plumber it will not flush. it is a neorest 600


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.

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

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
