Never had this before, new toilet pan fitted about a month ago. Every so often after a flush the water drops below the back lip and air enters the trap. The trap is no longer whole and smells can come back.

No changes at all to the waste pipe, been in place 12 years from new.
Is there any way of fitting an anti syphon to the pipe behind the pan? Theres no pipework available, it goes straight from the pan into the concrete floor.
