toilet bowl water drains

After flushing the main level toilet, a few hours later the water has drained down to just an inch or so. No water is visible while looking at it from the basement or staining of sub floor. All other toilets/sinks work fine. Vent problem?

Re: toilet bowl water drains

From what you are describing, you're most likely having a stoppage somewhere: inside the bowl or just past it. You will need to cleat it.

To clear the bowl, use a toilet bowl snake. To clear the line use a regular snake.

Yep --- I agree with dj.
