After first checking the main plumbing stack for an obstruction I found the cause of the problem. I had lifted the toilet off the floor and noticed that the cast iron drain pipe connected to the toilet flange had a "sludgy" deposit on the inside of the pipe. The deposit had effectively reduced the 3" diameter pipe to a 1" diamter.
I hired a plumber who used a power auger to clean the main stack and drain right out to the sewer. That was about three months ago and I haven't had another problem since.
Thanks fella's, I really needed to read about thick slimy sludge residue & stuff.
I'll remember to check out other posts while I'm eating :O(
Glad you got it cleared.
