If you are on a septic system, use caution with the acid method. Either take the bowl outside and use the acid or neutralize the acid before flushing into the septic.

Is this an "issue" for you or a "problem". Since it seems to be an issue rather than a problem, don't worry about it.

How old is the toilet in question ?
Have you installed a new float valve or tank baffles to reduce the toilet's water consumption...
Older toilets are designed to use more water when they flush and they NEED that water to start the siphon to clear the bowl...
Trying to adapt an older toilet to use less water without the right parts will mean an underfilled bowl (which means not enough water is in the bowl to start with) and not releasing enough water from the tank into the bowl during the flushing process...
You should either replace the toilet with a newer one if you are trying to reduce your water consumption OR seek out a plumber with the required skills and experience in converting older toilets to low consumption...
