Brand new homeowners here!
Our toilet will not take the water down when flushed. The water swirls in the bowl and the waste will partially go down but the water never empties. If we let the waste sit there after flushing, go away for a while and come back, it will have gone down the pipe.
This is what we've done:
- Replaced the float, flapper, supply line and supply valve
- Cleaned the holes at the top of the bowl where water is delivered from the tank (none of them were blocked)
- Tried to snake the drain.....cheap auger, not really sure it actually went down the pipe
If I pour a container of water in as I flush, the water goes down completely. We cannot smell any sulfur smell either in the bathroom or in the basement. We don't have any problems with our drains, the tub and all sinks in the house drain quickly.
I've read so many things ****** about toilets....I'm at a loss here. What else can I try? The previous owners had two young boys....think something is stuck in there? Do we need to take the whole toilet out and see if there's something in there?
Thanks for any help!
