    Ok, so last night we were without a toilet since the darn thing plugged up and water wouldn't go down at all. I plunged the thing and my mom plunged it. Then the water went all the way down to the bottom. So my mom figured it must have worked after sitting for a while. She flushed it and.. nope, still plugged up. So water overflowed and went everywhere. So we called the landlord and a plumber came out this morning. He tried and tried to unplug it, but couldn't. So he unbolted the toilet from the floor and tried tipping the thing over but still couldn't get the snake to go through it. So he put a new toilet on which has been working fine since. But I just walked into the bathroom and it looks like someone took a bubble bath in the toilet. I kid you not!!!! It's full of bubbles and I haven't put anything in it!! :scratch: :shocked:

    It could be some form of chemical that needs to be flushed from the tank with use??? Maybe the plumber used something when replacing the wax ring underneath it :shrug:

    Probably from air being in the lines due to the plunging and the whole replacing episodes.
