Another plumber replaced roughly 10 feet of the waste line. That helped for roughly 15 flushes, then it was back to the same routine.

The question about paper was because Charmin paper seem to cause more issues here.

I would pull the toilet and camera the line. To me it sounds as though you either have some sort of hang up in the line or the is a low spot in the line.

If after you have a camera view there is nothing then I would look at the toilet again and then the venting

Thanks for the advice. My next step is to get a camera view.

You want a camera view from the toilet all the way to the sewer tap. When you call a plumber about using a camera make sure you ask if the camera has locating. This way if there is something found they can locate the where the camera head is, and depth and be able to mark the ground encase you have to dig it up.

The waste line from the toilet to the sewer tap is in the crawl space. So, is locating still a necessity?

I'm not sure what you're asking (I'm definitely not a pro), but the toilet sits directly next to the tub, and 4 feet away from the sink. The toilet is in between the tub and sink.

Unfortunately, that was the limit of his expertise.

I have a camera coming this afternoon.
