In response to Re: Slow flushing
: The toliet is slow to drain, filling up to almost overflowing then drains, but very slowly and not flushing the contents fully. Also, after pushing the handle, at times a 'banshee' noise would emit-sometime for a second or so, other times longer rivaling the call of the wolves. If perhaps something maybe partially blocking the drain, how does one 'snake' the toliet drain? Help.

Reply:
If the toilet was flushing good and all of a sudden this problem began, the trouble is more than likely a restriction in the trapway. If a plunger will not correct the problem, buy (General makes a good one) or rent a toilet auger from a plumbing supply house that rents tools.
The odd noises could be from the toilet fill valve which may need replacing.
Good Luck. e-plumber
