    Just took a shower and that causes the toilet to bubble, and drain. When I flushed the toilet it splashed up for a second before it filled. I have a toto drake, so it flushes and fills very quickly.

    I'm on a city sewer system.

    Is it possible to remove the toilet, and run a snake that way? The toilet drain, and the main line are very close.

    Any specific kind of screw I should use since it will be partially attaching to the tile, and thinset above the wood?
