In response to Re: toilet drains dry when left
: I'm in charge of minor bldg maint. and I've got a stumper. We have 1 toilet upstairs in an unused part of the building which works perfectly fine except for one thing. I flush it once a week to keep it working, but when I come back the next day all the water is gone from the bowl. There is no water on the floor, etc. and all the mechanicals in the tank seem OK. What is going on? I am afraid we are getting sewer gas because of this one toilet.

Glen,
Normaly, I expect the toilet to have a crack in the china allowing water to drain down the pipe. Since your toilet is left alone for a week at a time, maybe you have some helpful critters using that toilet as the local waterering hole.
