Exclamation

I have three toilets in my house, two are on the second floor and one is on the main floor. Our problem is this: After one of the users finish using the toilet, it seems to clog up. We have plunged it before, and have also called "roto-rooter' to assess the problem. Their response was that there were no problems with the drains. It seems to happen more frequesntly over the past year and is getting to be a hassle now. Do you have any suggestion on what may be wrong with the drains? It happens on all three units, but not at the same time.

Cool

All toilets have their own built-in traps, and if you have those so-called "water-saver" federally-required 1.6-gallon toilets, if anything is put down them but a minimum amount of toilet paper, they are going to clog.
I agree. It is not your drains.
It is those toilets.
You're just going to have to tell your family not to put ANYTHING down them but a minimum amount of toilet tissue.
Otherwise, get a good toilet plunger (the kind with a rubber pop-out bell on the end) and a plumber's toilet auger to keep them clear.
Good Luck!

Our toilets are not low low, they are over 20 years old and in good working operation.
