In response to Re: Low water surface in toilet
: : : I just replaced my toilet, and the water surface is just above the entrance of the trapway. I wanted to see if it was a tank problem or a bowl problem, so I tried to fill the bowl slowly with water. The more I poured, the more it emptied. I called Eljer and they said it was the wax ring. I used an extra thick gasket with a urethane foam core. Could that cause a problem?

: : does it flush properly?

: : how old was the old toilet?

: : most of the new toilets are low consumption toilets
: : they are designed to work with less water.
: : wad up some toilet paper, then flush it. if it does not
: : go down then adjust the water level in the tank.

: : if it does not leak then the wax ring may not be the problem.

Thank you DMAC for your response.
To answer your questions;

It has a weak flush

The old toilet was a 1978 Mansfield.

The spec sheet on the new Eljer said it had a
10" x 9-1/2" water surface. After getting it hooked up, it has half of that. The water doesn't even cover the waste.
