1. DIY Methods Failed
For simple toilet clogs, a little plunging action will usually do the trick. If, however, the drain is severely clogged, a plunger may not be strong enough to clear the drain. Aggressive plunging can break the wax ring at the base of the toilet and lead to flooding. Likewise, many hardware stores rent drain augers designed to unclog drains. This method can be messy and, if not done carefully, can damage the drain, leading to bigger plumbing issues than you had to start with.
2. You Flushed a Foreign Object
Toilet paper biodegrades so as to not clog the drain. If something other than toilet paper or biowaste are flushed down the drain, call in the professionals immediately. Foreign objects can lodge in the drain and cause the toilet to back up and overflow. Even worse, if the object lodges in the main line, wastewater can back up into other drains in the building, including sinks, bathtubs, and floor drains. Swift removal of the object is imperative to prevent major plumbing issues and damage.
3. Foul, Persistent Odor
A variety of toilet issues can allow sewer gas to escape into the building, creating a foul (and dangerous) odor. Primarily, if the water level in the tank or bowl is too low, sewer gas can back up into the facility. This may be caused by a partially clogged drain, a cracked and leaking bowl, or a variety of other issues. Similarly, a a broken wax ring under the toilet will allow sewer gas to escape. Regardless of the cause, the issue should be remedied quickly as prolonged exposure to sewer gas can be harmful.
