my toilet clogs intermittently. I have no idea of what brand or year of this toilet. If I use the sink or the shower, it will clog. I've used a countless number of chemicals with limited results. When i shower, the toilet bubbles. I am now lost to what action to take now. sometimes even the sink and shower drains slow. what next?

Using chemicals is useless BUT it does help the companies pushing these dangerous chemicals and it does make plumbers richer as
1- I many do hard the pipes

2- If a plumber gets burned by chemicals in a drain and not told about it this is great for a lawsuit

3- When I know chemicals are used there is a $75 surcharge as I need hand and eye protection and plus chemicals can destroy expensive drain cleaning equipment

The problem stated above is simple a stoppage that is either a main or a soil line and to clear it the main sewer has to be snaked Or the toilet taken up and a 3/4" snake used with a 2U cutter head to clear the line
