Bought house in 2007 and Replaced all waste pipe except cast iron stack vent..but since then my toilet always bubbled up first before flushing.

I replaced the toilet last week and water level in bowl drops down with nothing else on. It doesnt fill back up. When I flush it splashes up as if its a Bidet. Lol. It flushes fine after that initial gasp for air.

Nothing in home backs up.
Toilet in basement flushes fine.

I went on roof, used a hose, vacuum, camera abd snake .

The only thing i found was pieces of hard clay in waste line.

Question is..... how far can a blockage be to affect the main level toilet? Street is 75 feet away. Basement toilet is closest to street and is fine.

I think the problem is in the toilet or very close. Try closet Auger
I changed back to old toilet. Water staying in bowl but you can see it bubble up on initial flush. Odd.

Would laundry nearby be an issue?

Would a blockage near street be an issue? Im not sure how plumbing drains work.

some sort of blockage if you keep flushing , or run water down other drains you should be able to learn something as to where a stoppage could be.

Sounds like a clog near the toilet. Pull the toilet and auger or snake it (augers tend to mess up the porcelain IMO) to see if you can find any blockage

Hey, wait a minute.

This is awkward, but...
