Water levels in toilet


My daughter says when she flushes the toilet, the water in the bowl is way too high, after it fills. And the water slowly drains out of the bowl to where it's almost empty. This sound like a clog, correct? Any other possibilities?

Thanks.

Re: Water levels in toilet


That would be my first guess.
Septic tank full, blocked vent, clogged filter in the septic tank, failed leach field.
All other things it could be.
If it's city sewer a few of the other items do not apply.

Thanks. It's a city sewer. She's been plunging it, but she can't fix it. Any other advice if it is a clog?

Re: Water levels in toilet


High priority item to check -- Drain pipe vent (stack vent) to the roof.

If this is clogged then the toilet(s) will behave unpredictably.

Thanks. How would that get clogged?
