: : : Very few toilets will do what yours is doing. It is most likely because of the design of your existing toilet or possibly even an obstruction inside the toilets trapway preventing proper evacuation. Did you run a closet auger through it?
: : : Good Luck. e-plumber
: : Dear e-plumber,
: : Thanks for your suggestion - but what is a closet auger !

: It is a hand held "snake" specifically for clearing a toilet stoppage without damaging the bowl. Something could be causing turbulence within the toilet. But if the problem has been ongoing, it is more than likely a toilet design problem.

It could be that the refill tube inside the tank has come loose and is splashing against the lid. Remove the lid, flush, and observe. If your face gets wet then you know the source.
Note: Don't try this with a sewage ejector.
