I understand the concept,but why is there no water in the bowl left and I have to flush again to restore the water level in the bowl.

there is a little tube inside the tank coming from the ballcock (fill valve) that needs to be in

the overflow tube. that is what refills the bowl after a flush. either yours is not in the right spot or it is clogged at the fill valve.

instead of flushing twice just hold the handle down a little longer so more water goes into the bowl.

make sure the water level in the tank is at the correct height.
