Rick the plumber :

Welcome to Just Answer, I will do my best to help with your problem

Rick the plumber :

This is probably either a venting issue or possible a stoppage in the main sewer line

Rick the plumber :

Are you on city sewer or septic?

JACUSTOMER-bk1yocwb- :

city sewer

Rick the plumber :

Then you best course of action would be to call in a drain cleaning company to snake the main line or call in a plumber who can snake your sewer and look into the possible venting issues

JACUSTOMER-bk1yocwb- :

Ok, I'll try that. But I do have another toilet just in case. Thanks.
