Toilet drains very very slow when flushed, then toilet empties down to the hole and will only fill up again when flushed. snaked everything so there appears to be no clog that we can tell, plus tub and sink drain fine. also, when toilet is filling up, water comes from both little tube on the right and also the valve thing on the left at the same time inside the back tank. also noticed that when the toilet is flushed, bubbles are coming in from the hole in bottom of toilet- and i think that is not supposed to happen when flushed as stuff is supposed to be going down instead right. toilet is new-worked for a couple weeks then just boom -it all came together. should i buy new guts or new toilet thanks you in advance for your help

The problem is not the toilet... changing it will only will only be wasting your money!

The problem is in the plumbing...the air in the pipes has no place to go when the water comes from the toilet being it bubles up through and messes everything up...
The vent pipe of the system is either frozen or it has sagged somewhere and is full of water....
You will need to find/figure out why the system cannot vent properly and get it fixed....
The vent pipe is the pipe that sticks out the top of your roof... something is blocking that pipe...

How do I fix a toilet that bubbles (small air bubbles from below) and flushes slow, and not completely very often?

Remove the toilet & have a plumbing company power snake

Maybe clogged inside the home on most runs & also out to
the street,have them do as much as they can, out to the street

Remove all toilets, so they can do good job & you can check &
clean them from under it

Have them run a camera down ALL drains & to the street

Toilet wont flush

Main 3 (or 4) inch drain under the toilet is clogged. Requires removing the toilet and running a "snake" down the pipe. Alternately, you can (carefully) try manually filling the toilet bowl all the way to the top----to apply pressure to the may push it through.

When flushing , the bowl will not drain properly or fast enough to discharge the waste,also the bowl will not fill back up to the correct level with clean water, Acts as if there is some type of blockage...

It sounds like there is a buildup of waste at the top of the trap in the toilet. A closet snake should resolve the problem. You do not have to snake more than a couple of feet of the drain if the buildup is at the top of the trap which is always dry. Try the closet snake and a couple of buckets of hot water while flushing the bowl. Rigid makes a good closet snake and is worth the cost. After clearing, make it a habit of holding down the lever until you hear the tank empty when flushing down solids. Especially with the 1.6 gallon tanks.

When flushingtoilet water backs up inshower

You can try this, get a bottle of liquid plumber industrial or pro, and pour the entire bottle into the pipe in the toilet, when you remove the toilet cover you see a pipe that has a water line in it from the fill valve, if you can't pour the liquid into this pipe, then turn off the water to the toilet, flush it and hold the handle until all the water has emptied out.

Now while holding the handle, pour the bottle into the hole where the stopper is open, the hole where the water goes down.

Wait a hour, then take a bucket of hot water and fill the toilet water tank, flush it, do this again.

Now turn the water back on and flush. If the shower still over flows, you will need a plumber to come and snake the main line from the toilet down until the clog is cleared.

Unless he finds a close access near the toilet if this is on the first floor and he can do it from the basement.

My mothers toilet will not flush, its like theres no suction, when flushed the water in the bowl goes down very slowly but not all the way down to the hole and when it does its very slow weak suction. I...

Try getting a bucket full of water and dumping it pretty rapidly into the toilet bowl. This is essentially what happens when the toilet is flushed normally, but it removes the variable of how the water is being delivered from the tank to the bowl. It should swirl and go charging down the drain, quickly leaving the bowl with very little water. If it does not act that way, then problem is definitely that the drain is obstructed. When you snaked it, you probably used a fairly short snake (about 10 feet?). Try a plunger - use a good one not the kind designed for sinks. Flush multiple times and get vigorous with it. If that doesn't clear it you will have to remove the toilet and use a much larger and longer snake (50 ft or more). good luck, Al K

I have a 3 bath rental. The last tenants were

With the toilet clean, try a large shop vac and see if that will unplug it , I had to do that when my son had flushed a toy and it was stuck. If that wont work you will have to pull the toilet.
