Wow, there's so much to learn about this, there should be a degree in Toiletology.

I've often wondered if it'd be possible to raise the water level in our bowls. In their great wisdom, the designers of our artsy-craftsy dual-flush Caroma toilets decided to make the water level so low, leaving so much of the bowl exposed, that—how can I put this delicately—reminders are often left that the last user was a tad off-center.

We considered putting a little card on each tank asking guests to check after doing their duty, but my wife decided that'd be tacky.

I know you're discussing an older toilet here, but maybe we could work in a newer one with the same goal?

(It's also beyond me why anyone would include the word "aroma" in a toilet brand.)

Could be that you're flapper isn't staying open long enough. If it closes say when the tank is only half emptied, the water will shut off before the bowl fills back up.
