first off...i work on computers, thus when attempting to fix or diagnose problems i am usually all thumbs.
the problem i have encountered is with toilet in our two piece bathroom. I have used a rooter (automatic one) and a snake, and neither have encountered any sorts of blockage. Yet i am still unable to get a strong enough flush to clean out the bowl. we have lifted the toilet and used the automatic rooter to its full 80ft, and still nothing. we put the toilet back on and the first flush worked. second attempt was back at the same slow drain. water does drain, there is no overflow.
in my attempts to troubleshoot some more, i tried turning on the sink faucet (full pressure) in that same bathroom, and flushed to the toilet, and there seemed to be enough to flush the bowl.
could there be any correlation to the water being turned on at the sink, to enough pressure going through the toilet?
