Got the one I just changed out sitt'n here at the Mayberry rally, and a person pointed out that if look down at the seal, make sure the top section of the bowl has the same amount of seal snow'n all around.....there's 2 screw at the back that you can loosen and adjust the valves to better line the seal up

Just a heads up. Be careful using Vasoline in any water based seal application. Vasoline has petroleum and rubber seals and gaskets used for water are usually made of EPDM rubber that will break down when petroleum put on them. Best to use something like KY jelly or silicone. (Been in the rubber seal business for over 30 years).

Thanks everyone for the replies! After numerous times of checking the seals, slide ball, etc for multiple days over the weekend I finally found the problem...All it was was one of the 2 pegs that holds the slide ball up had come out of its female position making the slide ball barely sit below the gasket.
Felt like an idiot, but glad it was that simple!!

I was having this issue on my new one. I discovered that I just needed to keep a little more water in the bowl after flushing. Apparently the seal just needs a tad more head pressure.

Thanks for letting us know what the problem was.

What model was the toilet? It'd be good to know in case someone else has the same problem. We can tell them what to look for if it isn't the seal.

Thanks for asking. I've been avoiding an issue with a toilet for about a month and a half now.
