After working for ROTO-ROOTER for 20 + years, I have come across this problem more than twice. There are many problems that can be included, but let's start with the most simple and go from there. Step 1... Check your roof vent to see if it is obstructed with debris, such as birds nest, frozen ice, dead animal...etc..... To check this you must go onto the roof and find the sewer vent(it is not hard to find as it smells like sewer). Visually look into the vent even using a flashlight to make sure there is nothing obstructing the vent pipe. certain things can clog your vent such as Debris,Birbs Nest, Ice, dead animal,Etc..A drain line needs a air vent so water can flow....If nothing is visually seen , have someone flush the stool. If you cannot see any obstructions and HEAR THE FLUSH, Your Vent is okay. Check out plumbing and venting on the internet for more reference. If this is not your problem then you must pull the stool and see if there is an object stuck in the toilet......Comb, toothbrush, Etc... The best way is to pull the stool from the floor and look from the bottom of the toilet to see if there is an object stuck inside the stool.Turn off the water supply and disconnect it from the tank. Go to your local hardware store and buy 2 wax rings with plastic flanges and a set of flange bolts(these are cheap and can be returned if not used).Turn off the water supply to the toilet tank and flush it to drain all the water from the tank and the stool. You can use a shop vac or an old towel to remove the water. After removing the stool, lay it on its side and look from the bottom to see if there are any obstructions. You may need a mirror and flashlight to see inside the gooseneck of the stool. If you cannot see any obstructions, you can try to dump a 5 gallon bucket of water through the bottom of the stool to push the object out the way it entered. NOTE: When reinstalli8ng the stool, be careful not to over-tighten the floor flange bolts as you might crack the toilet......Joe

If there is a shower in the same bath is it also draining slowly?
If so check that drain systems air vent, (on the roof).
Find the pipe coming out of the roof nearest the bathroom with the problem and when a second person flushes the toilet you should be able to feel
air moving in and out of the pipe with your hand covering the end. If not the vent could be blocked by leaves or animals etc., this vent has to be clear in order for water to drain properly.
