This may not be a problem in your area, but several times a year I get calls similar to yours and the solution is to remove the toilet, cut off the root that is growing between the concrete and the closet bend, (and then grows under the toilet and enters the pipe from the top), and pour a generous quantity of salt into the gap before resetting the toilet. Repeat the above operation a couple of times each year when the symptoms recur.

: Dear Terry,

: We bought a "money-pit" I mean home two years ago, and have had problems with the hallway bathroom's toilet.

: It seems as if it doesn't have enough sucking action to take anything floating down to where it belongs. We have snaked it and have put baking soda & vinager. It flushes but if someone sits and rides the bus it over flows can you help before it gets thrown out the bathroom window?

: Thanks
