In response to Re: Toilet Bowl Level Low
: Thanks for the help guys. I do not believe it to be the roots now. We have taken 2 normal showers today with no signs of back up or worry.

: The thing is the toilet flushes, but it leaves the bowl really slow, meaning it doesn't get the proper time to fill again.

: What could be causing this? Something stuck in the toilet trap?

That could do it. One cause of loss of bowl water (after you have ruled out the obvious, such as a cracked bowl...which would show up as a leak under the toilet) is siphonage of water out of the bowl into the drain. A classic example would be some fabric that partially obstructs the trap and wicks water out of the bowl into the drain. Try clearing it with a closet augur or take the bowl out and snake it.
