I rent a home from someone who is basically a slum lord. My plumbing has not worked correctly since I have lived there which has been over a year and a half. Now, here is the beginning of my problem. The toilet stopped flushing about a year ago. It will flush if and only if we pour about 3 gallons of water directly into the bowl. We had a plumber look at it and he made the decision that it was the septic system and not the toilet itself. He snaked our main drain pipe and we used a toilet auger with no results. I previously posted on the Plumbing board, and I thought that if I redirected the question I might get some fresh ideas! BTW, I was wondering if replacing the toilet would make a difference???
