Toilet Incomplete Flush
Having an issue with the toilet, hope someone can advise.
Toilet had been working 100%, then when attempting to flush a large amount of solids, water rose to rim and slowly drained out. Vigorous plunging resulted in water going down more quickly, but still not as before.
Now upon flushing, the water swirls but then only lazily goes down and solids are only partly carried away. On flushing, the tank flapper valve drops after ten seconds at which point the water is still swirling, then the bowl water level slowly with much gurgling (eight seconds) sinks down to an empty bowl but without enough fall to fully empty the bowl of solids.
A two gallon pail of water poured into the toilet takes seven seconds to drain out of the bowl, which seems slow but maybe because I never timed it before.
There doesn't seem to be buildup around the rim jets or the small hole in the front bottom of the bowl. The water in the tank is about a half inch below the water line scored in the tank, and the tank guts were replaced recently. Vent was last looked at when the roof was replaced two years ago but again this is a sudden issue. It makes me think the blockage was not completely cleared, and I need to go get a real plunger not the old fashioned cup one, and possibly if that doesn't restore order, a snake.
Does that make sense? Any input appreciated.
