Hi just recently I've noticed my toilet water level is about 1cm lower than it was . I've checked the toilet and the floor boards for leaks (no leaks) ,I've poured a bucket of water down (went down easy but droped to the new lower level). I've tried flushing with the drain cover up (still no joy ). Any ideas how to get my toilet back to the original water level ?

usually a blockage somewhere down the line... lift the manhole cover and take a look to see if it’s draining.

Dont ask me to explain - but i guess it gas something to do with a vacuum and not equalising pressure upon flush.

Well if it’s not blocked. There’s enough water in the cistern upon flushing. Your soil stack air vent hasnt been taken over by birds (!) and there’s no crack in the porcelain to allow the water out - it’s time to call a plumber.

If there are basin, bath/ shower in the same room check the traps for water.

Is this toilet upstairs or downstairs with an internal or external soil stack? If internal could it be a Durgo valve fault guys?

Could be a precursor of something yet to happen!

If it starts to block or smell then something's up but you need to provide more of a description to help us attempt some diagnosis...

It's downstairs next to the outside man hole , it doesn't have a soil stack on this toilet just on my upstairs toilet on the other side of the house

No smell at all , when I flustered it you can see the water flying out at a good rate
