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.
