The toilet fills with water when flushed, but it doesn’t go down.
Here’s some info:
-it’s been over a week. I can’t afford a plumber.
-the house is on a concrete slab. The pipes are in or under that.
-As far as I know, no foreign object was flushed. I don’t have little kids that would drop something down there and we don’t keep anything on the back of the toilet.
-the bathtub and the bathroom sink both drain. The sink drains slowly, but since they do, we don’t think it’s a main line issue.
-I think my dad broke the wax ring plunging. It leaks like a mofo now.
-I’ve used Rid-x and something that’s blue crystals and is meant to dissolve organic matter. The blue stuff primarily just leaked all over my floor, so no idea how much use that ended up being.
-I put mainline cleaner down the tub, and foaming root cleaner in the clean-out in the back yard. These don’t appear to have done anything.
-we have plunged it with a sink plunger and an accordion plunger, snaked it with a 25 foot auger, and used a kinetic water ram to 45lbs. I was afraid to use more pressure.
-we have emptied it out and poured a bucket of water in the bowl. It doesn’t drain like that.
-the tank doesn’t fill as much as it seems like it should, but the toilet still doesn’t flush with water added up to the fill line.
-I am about to lose my marbles.
Any ideas or solutions? Please. Thanks!
