Question Toilet Bowl water levels

how do you get the water level in the bowl to be higher after flushing? My bathroom toilet level is very low and I have to hold down the lever after flushing to fill it to an acceptable level.

If you aren't having flushing problems, the flapper is probably closing too soon from being semi-worn out.
Replace the flapper.
Clean the flapper seat with steel wool or SOS pad. Shorten the chain on the new flapper until it just allows the flapper to seat fully.
Good luck!

There is a 1/4 " line that dumps water in the top of the flush valve. Make sure this hose is positioned to throw water into this overflow pipe as the tank is filling.

Look for the line on the side of the tank that shows where the water should be, make sure the water level is at that level.

More questions, problems, ask and someone will help you.
