FBTS front bath toilet stops up constantly

The riser pipe from our front toilet lately started stopping up .the back tank is empty or 1/3 full .sometimes I can pour a rush of hot water down ,others I have to use the spray jetted on the garden hose .Question anyone else having same issues? When we get in I'll pull the basement floor up to check the entry point of the black tank.

Uggggg, we are all going to tell ourselves that the wet spots are just sparkling clean spring water.....
Lesson learned, lots and lots of water to flush, saving water isn’t worth the pyramid!

Not leaving your black valve open are you? You flushing really good after dumping? Filling the tank up before dumping? Never had any issues with 2ply RV or home paper. Stopped using overpriced rv paper years ago. Normally poo pyramids are from leaving the valve open and/or not flushing or dumping the tank without enough water in it.

We currently use samsclub store brand paper. 2ply and soft. Breaks down good too. Breaks down better than Walmarts store brand and much softer.
We also use flushable wipes and have no issues with those either. We use cottonelle brand.

I add about 6 full bowl fulls of water to the tank. Then add my treatment in a full bowl then another full bowl. So a total 8 full bowls of water before any waste goes in. Then I run the flush for a while adding more water to the tank before dumping it. Then I flush the hell out of it. I also close the valve and fill the tank half or more and dump again. I do that about a half dozen times. Can never over clean your poo tank.

Yep. Have so on several RVs with no issues. Just be sure the TP is septic rated. A guy on you tube tested half a dozen or so TP and found Walmart store brand was the best for breaking down out of the brands he tested. It's 2ply but wasn't very soft. So we tested Walmart and the Samsclub store brand we use at home. Found the samsclub broke down better than the Walmart and is soft.


Link to TP testing I referenced.
