In response to Re: Low water surface in toilet
Thank you hj for your response.
The spec sheet for the Eljer said the water surface was 10" x 9-1/2". It's at half that.
Am I stuck with a defective toilet?

: The water level is designed into the toilet. Whatever the level is when you pour water into the bowl slowly is where it will always be. Wax rings, adding more water, or anything else will not change it.

: : 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?
