      My toilet wont flush. Ive used an auger and a plunger. Ive removed the toilet to check to see if the baby had thrown anything in it. I removed the toilet and placed it in the tub. I took a water hose and run water through all the holes, then I filled the toilet up with water and flushed it and it flushed. I put a new wax ring down and re-installed the toilet. After connecting the water lines and filling the toilet with water I flushed it and it still worked, so I finished installing. I tightened it down and caulked around the toilet. After cleaning up my mess and feeling good about fixing the problem I tried to flush it again and it wouldnt flush. Can you please help? Do you have any idea what is causing this? We just bought our house about three months ago and the toilet looks fairly new. I really dont want to buy another toilet unless necessary. Please, help me if you can.Sincerely Jimmy

      There is a problem with the sewer under the floor. It is most likely obstructed and takes one or two flushes to fill the ppe and stop the toilet from flushing.: My toilet wont flush.
