Clog at Toilet Drain Hole

I have a toilet in my hall way that over time will clog up at the drain hole. By this I mean it will work for several days and then suddenly I go to flush and water come out around the base of the toilet. When I remove the bolt and pull the toilet away the drain pipe is clogged.

Unlike a normal clog it does not overflow the toilet, then water come out around the bottom base of the toilet. I have replaced the wax ring many time and while I am not a plumber I feel pretty confident I am replacing it correctly.

You can flush it with no solids and it works fine. My back bedroom toilet works fine.

I guess I need to call a plumber but I wanted to see if anyone has some ideas or has run into this situation before.

Could be it was plumbed wrong in the first place, someone droped somthing in the toilet and it's stuck in the trap, pluged up vent, plugged up drain, failed drain field.
Just changing the wax ring as you found is not going to fix anything.

You may have a bad flange--or you have failed several times with the wax ring---

A toilet will not leak from the base if the flange is good and the wax ring/toilet connection is done correctly--

I suggest you rod that line clean before you reinstall the toilet----Mike---
