Tried to get the older woman to do it them selfs but don't want to. I'm thinking the double flush is causing the blockage? So if not a easy fix would a new toilet take care of this problem? I don't want to tell them to have a plumber put in a new toilet and still be calling me every three months after that. What do you think?

    Sound to me like it has a toothbrush stuck in the trap. Lot of times they won't always stop up. Occasionally she will flush a big wad of paper and it gets hung up on the toothbrush.

    Regardless of what is causing the problem, a new toilet would def. fix the clogging problem. Since the blockage can be cleared with a hand auger.
