How is the water level in a commode maintained constant at any given time?

The water level in the tank is set by the ballcock, the

mechanism with the float that is responsible for turning the water

on and off when you flush. The water level in the bowl is set by

the height of the top of the S-trap that is part of the bowl. Tank

water level is adjustable, bowl water level is not.
