Toilet water in bowl slowly drains minutes after flushing has completed
The water in my toilet bowl drops very slowly minutes after a flush has been completed. The water in the bowl won't empty completely but it does drop considerably lower than right after it completed flushing. It has me a little puzzled because there isnít any leak anywhere around the bowl or tank and the water in the bowl does eventually stop dropping after a while. I installed a new FluidMaster Flush Valve & Flapper over the weekend but that didn't fix the problem.
How do I get the water in the bowl to stay at the height it's at right after completing a flush? Is this a DWV problem? A couple of years ago I had a bird caught in the pipe. It eventually turned up inside a toilet!!! My first experience with a clogged vent! :eek: Could a blocked vent be the cause of this problem again?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
hair line crack in bowl??
it might be an idea here to just go out and buy some
green or blue food coloring and put some in the bowl
to siphon out on the next flush.....
let it sit for a day or so and eventually if their is a hiair line crack
in the trap , it will leave you a line in the china to seee....
if or when you take up the bowl to see what is going on with it....
their can also be sometihing like a mop string caught on the trap
wier of the toilet hanging down into the drain , this will make the toilet
siphon down the its water...
maybe you might want to just get a toilet auger and shake things
up a little bit first....
toilet bowl water siphons away
Just curious what the problem ended up being?
I installed 2 American Standard toilets last month. One is fine, the other one loses its bowl water after a minute or two. I can flush and the bowl fills ok, but within a minute the water level siphons down to almost exposing the hole in bottom.
Refill tube is positioned correctly in tank.
