Searched but didn’t find anything 100% applicable to my dilemma. A few days ago, I clogged my toilet. Hindsight being 20/20, maybe I should have performed an intermediate flush. Anyways, I cleared it with a plunger and everything seemed fine… until the following day. The following problem now exists.
Flush the toilet and it sounds like it flushes fine but only 50% of the bowl water flushes. It then adds the new water filling the bowl to about a ½ inch below the lower edge of the rim. Tried to use the plunger again to no avail. Walked away. The weird part is that the bowl slowly drains over the course of 6-8 hours to a level below the normal water level. I have now replicated this 2-3 times over the past couple days. Inspected the tank and everything in there looks good to go.
Figuring there was a partial clog, I went in search of magical chemicals but soon discovered that Drano/Liquid Plumber is not to be used in toilets. Only thing I can think is that it will degrade the wax ring. Can anybody confirm this?
Next plan is to buy a “snake” and see if I can’t free up the flow a bit. Does this sound like a partially clogged toilet? Any other advice?
