In Response To: toilet plumbing (kat baarson)

Kat, Even if the flapper stays up the bowl should not overflow. Let me just get one thing straight. You are talking about the bowl (the part on the bottom) rather than the tank (the part on the top which fills up after you flush correct.? If the flapper is staying up then your tank will not fill with water. The water will keep running and flow into the bowl. In theory the bowl should automatically drain when it gets filled with water. You may just have a clogged toilet. If you try clearing it with a plunger that may solve your overflow problem. Then you can either get a new flapper with a plastic cord, which is less likely to bind up, or just adjust the flapper so it falls correctly. If that does not help let us know.
