Tank fill is fine.
No leaks.
Water swirls round and round when flushed.
Stuff disappears.
Then it backwashes the last bit of water (and whatever is riding the surf at that moment)

Doesn't seem like a clog. Or is it?
I've plunged it. Plunged it like my life depended on it.

Toilet has done this since we moved in (2 yrs).
vent pipe is hmmm. where is it. I'll go look on the roof during daylight.
This toilet is downstairs, the upstairs one works fine.

Could be a bad design.

I know of someone that had a bird die in their vent pipe as K2 suggested. He plunged and plunged also until someone suggested checking the vent pipe. I'm not sure how he got the bird out. I'm not sure why the bird went there to die. Any ideas how to get the vent pipe unplugged if it is that K2?

Good Luck,

Try to raise the fill level in the tank higher,also make sure the little hose that squirts out water is in the overflow tube. See if that helps. C.
