My toilet fills after flush instead of going down the drain; no overflow, but slow drain to below normal.

Thhis first happened about 2 and half weeks ago. One plunge fix the problem. Tonight, even repeated plunging does not fix it.

Thank you LCD! I did not see your answer until this morning but had already lined up someone to come this morning. Then, this morning, my 10 year old granddaughter admitted that she might have accidently let a mouthwash sized paper cup go down. Took just one try with the appropriate snake.

Your answer reassured me, though, that it probably just needed to be snaked even before hearing from my granddaughter.

Thanks again!
